Chris emailed us on the morning of our arrival to say there had been snow over night but that all the local lanes and access were clear, which was reassuring. The fit and finish of everything at The Cottage and the attention to detail are excellent. They are so many little extras that make all the difference, from pods for the coffee machine, OS maRead moreps and walkers guide books and the fires all prepared with extra wood but with the underfloor heating, no real need. Highly recommend. Hide

The Cottage is a really lovely place to stay. It is finished to a high standard, is super clean and cosy with everything there you need. There are miles of footpaths from the end of the drive, and plenty of interesting places to visit and very nice places to eat all within a short drive. Highly recommend!!

A really high end and well equipped cottage in a great location to explore the Peaks. We visited in December but enjoyed the cozy interiors, which were well warmed with underfloor heating and two fireplaces, one in each sitting area. The garden was great for our dog to run around, and there are walks right from the Cottage door that can be enjoyed.Read more We enjoyed the table tennis table and also made use of the boot room facilities which were very handy. Such a beautiful Cottage not to be missed! Hide

This cottage is superb, everything is top quality and beautifully furnished. The layout is perfect, a large open plan area for socialising and cooking but a cosy snug if you want somewhere quiet. The welcome tray was very generous and welcome. It was so comfortable and well equipped we didnt want to leave!

One of the best holiday cottages we have ever stayed in. Wonderfully equipped, all modern appliances, comfy beds, all bedrooms with en-suites, full control of heating etc. Lovely to meet the owner, Chris, on the Friday evening and share his story of the re-build of the cottage (his original family home). Would strongly recommend this property to anRead moreyone looking for a holiday let in the Buxton area of the Peak District. Hide

This is a beautifully renovated cottage with comfort written all over it. We had a fabulous family stay here, enjoying the walks right from the door, the table tennis when it was wet, lovely meals made easy by the very well appointed kitchen, and cosy evenings.

We absolutely loved our stay at The Cottage. It is stunning inside and out, every room is luxuriously decorated and the views are beautiful. The location is great because it is situated, a short drive, to visit some beautiful places. The owners, Chris and Diane, have done an incredible job, they should be so proud. We will definitely be returning.

This is the best property I have ever rented, and I've rented quite a few. The Cottage at Tunstead is clearly a labour of love and the attention to detail is extraordinary. If anything, the pictures and description do not do the property justice. The extra facilities like the games room, ebike storage and electrical connections, wash-off hoses for Read morebikes and boots etc are second to none; everything has been thought of and the delivery is superb. Very peaceful in beautiful surroundings. Superb! Hide

The Cottage is a home away from home. Located in a very rural area it was perfect for us both to detox from our normal busy lives. Accommodation is perfect. Sunrise and sunsets are part of the experience. Lots to do around the Peak Distract with The Cottage being the perfect base. We will be back.
