This is a lovely cottage in a beautiful setting.It is compact and very clean. Great for 2 people. The road up to it requires confident driving but it leads to a pretty and peaceful vista.

Absolutely beautiful cottage, with all you could need. Located in an idyllic location, with spectacular views. The owner, his family and dog were very friendly and accommodating. I will highly recommend this cottage and pretty village. Most places you would want to visit are around 20-30mins drive, so perfect location.

We loved our stay at the cottage. The location is great for seeing all of the peak district with some wonderful walks right from the door. The cottage had everything we needed and was very comfortable for us as a family of 4 with 2 small children. We would definitely stay again

Beautiful secluded location. Really experienced the Peak District here. Narrow, stoned walled roads up to the cottage with spectacular views at the top. The sun sets at the front of the cottages, set on a working farm so plenty of country sounds and views. Cosy, clean and well equipped cottage. Couldnt fault the service, had a personal tour of the Read morefarm which was really interesting and informative.
