The cottage was very cosy and clean, the beds were very comfortable. It is ideal for 2adults and up to 2 children a bit compact for 4 adults. The cottage has been well maintained. Very well situated to visit Bakewell, Buxton and Chesterfield. There is excellent footpaths around the area for walkers.

Lovely spot for a week away. Farm shop does very nice sandwiches etc. Best pub was the Bulls Head at Monayash, which is only a ten minutes drive , and also the Jug and Glass in Hartington. The farmer was very friendly and it was lovely having the cow with her calf poke their heads over the wall in the mornings.home from home for us.

We had a lovely few nights at the cottage. Owners were welcoming and happy to show us the farm animals which the children loved. The cottage was perfect in size, and well maintained. Local pup was perfect for evening meals. Thank you for our stay, we will most definitely like to return.

An excellent location which is a great selling point of the cottage. The centre of the town is literally five minutes away and there are so many great outdoor locations well within a 30 min car journey. Very clean and two very useful wet rooms, also a basic but utilitarian kitchen. Being able to park the car in a secure area is a bonus. The downsidRead moree could be it would be tight to have four adults there especially when the weather turns bad. Hide

The Old Washhouse is a wonderfull small cottage. Completely privat but the owners are next door if you need them. Hiking starts at the backdoor and there are beautiful walks in the neighbourhood. We enjoyed the cows that came to graze on the lawn every day. Well fenced garden/terrace, ideal for our dog who could roam freely. Definitely recommended!

A delightful cottage in terms of decor, equipment and setting. I couldnt fault anything! In fact it was better than the online description. There was even a dishwasher and the kitchen had everything you could wish for whilst on holiday. The underfloor heating was very efficient and kept the whole cottage comfortably cosy.
