Great location for Peak District walking

The Next is a cosy place - ideal for a couple who like walking as we do, as it is so close to the Tissington and Monsal trails - and also just 5-7 minutes from Buxton

Perfect quiet getaway

lovely clean and adequate cottage, we stayed for a week (sat-sat) milk, biscuits and a lovely delishous bottle of red wine on arrival, also no need to take towels or tea-towels and washing up liquid etc as all provided. Plenty of information on attractions and places of interest to drive, walk or cycle to. Monkey Forest, Chatsworth House, Otter world, Bakewell and Matlock etc a must to visit all within driving distance. Lovely couple Trish and Steve (owners) and their gorgeous friendly collie Meg, very helpful if we asked about areas to visit, a must for walkers as central to most places, very clean courtyard and safe for parking gorgeous farm to walk round, would definately return and recommend to others.

Perfect cottage, facilities and location

The Nest is situated with a couple of other holiday cottages in a converted barn in a friendly farm in a small hamlet very near to Buxton. The location is perfect - although you will need a car! The surroundings are very calm and tranquil and it is a lovely place to be. The Cottage itself is a one room studio, but the way it is laid out doesn't make it feel like that at all. There is plenty of space, and it has been utilised very well. The fixtures were clean, and there were some extras provided upon my arrival (milk, biscuits and a bottle of wine) which were much appreciated after a long drive. The cooking facilites are very good and there are plenty of utensils, plates, pans etc. The bathroom is a good size and, again, nice and clean. The managers are friendly and there are even a few animals on hand who are keen to greet - in particular a lovely collie who ran over to greet me as I got out of my car one day. There is easy access by road to the Peaks, and the many various touristy places - Chatsworth, Peak Rail, and so many more - plus major cities like Derby, Manchester and Sheffield not too far away either. I will definitely make a return visit to The Nest, or one of the other Cottages at Cowdale Hall. Thank you so much for a very pleasant stay.

Nice location - shame about the noise

The cottage was OK. Everything worked. Apart from the bed, which was uncomfortable, couldn't really complain about the actual cottage. Little things were missing, which looking at previous reviews, had been provided in the past. The BIG problem was the sound proofing between ourselves and upstairs. They were loud (music and dog's barking). We booked the cottage for a peaceful weekend away, which we did not get. If you can tolerate what sounds like a herd of elephants moving around above, then this cottage will suit you.
