This property is fabulous! It's spotlessly clean and tidy and the rooms are very spacious and airy. Lots of light from the big windows at the front. You will want for nothing! All the amenities you need are there. The owners are so helpful and easy going. There is parking for one car only which may be an issue for some. Its a short walk from the loRead morecal pub (The Minors) Carsington Water is also reachable on foot. Not too far in a car to Matlock, Buxton, Bakewell and Ashbourne. Deffo recommend Hide

Stayed for a week in August. Strong smell of heating oil in the kitchen. Had the windows open all week and could still smell it when we come in. Needs to be cleaner, toilets were filthy and the bath, disappointing that the place was dusty and crumbs on the sofa. Outside could be tidier in the courtyard. The location was good, The Miners Arms pub inRead more the village was excellent, went there 3 evenings for dinner. Ideal to visit Matlock, Ashbourne and Alton Towers. Very quiet. Only one car spot.

Lovely accommodation and very well supplied. Much appreciated bottle of wine and packet of biscuits on arrival. Outside space is small and not enclosed if you have a larger dog that can jump!

We stayed for 5 days and were keen to relax. After being in the property for a few hours it became clear there was a problem with ventilation in the kitchen due to fuel odour. We also noted that everything in the kitchen and living areas would benefit from a deep clean to bring it up to an acceptable standard.

Great to be able to book a cottage by speaking to a human being and to be able to use a telephone. Some of us are technologically challenged and anyway the technology doesnt always work and general frustration grows. So,thank you for keeping that line of communication open. We will use you again!
