Lovely cottage. Great location. Very steep stairs to top floor bedroom

Reviewed by Matthew 21st September 2018

This place is great. Top flight of stairs is very steep in this historic property so care is needed but otherwise can not fault it. Well equipped kitchen and kept clean throughout.

Reviewed by Helen 3rd September 2018

Lovely clean cottage with useful essentials such as tea and coffee, washing up liquid, a washer and dryer (and washing tabs). Super fast Wi-fi and very friendly and helpful neighbours.

Reviewed by Julia 27th July 2018

Lovely cottage in a good location in Cromford. We found it a cosy & welcoming space, the kitchen was well equipped & the bedrooms comfy. We also appreciated the information on local attractions that was provided & the little touches like the coffee and tea! Also had a nice outside space with table and chairs. Decor is simple and was very clean - onRead morely thing to note is there are lots of stairs & some of them quite steep so not suitable for anyone with reduced mobility. Hide
