We enjoyed a lovely bank holiday weekend at Canalside with our 2 year old. The property is very easy to find and get to. The property was very peaceful and excellently located for days out in Derbyshire. Large rooms, a lovely garden and very well equipped. We would very happily return.

We loved staying at the bungalow which is very comfortable and pretty much home-from-home. Superb sleep in the comfy beds (mattresses very firm which we like). Lovely view from the very well equipped kitchen, which had everything we needed. The location was also perfect for Peak District etc. The new Lidl at Ripley just 2 miles away was perfect forRead more any shopping required, but there is also Aldi and Morrisons in Belper which are also great. We definitely hope to return. Hide

Canalside was an excellent choice for us. The bungalow is set back from the busy road nearby and feels lovely and secluded. Its location is actually very convenient for the attractive villages and towns which are only a short drive away. The lounge had a particularly pretty outlook. The interior of the property was spacious and clean, well furnisheRead mored and well supplied with a range of useful equipment. We appreciated the dimensions of the rooms. It was lovely and warm on a cold week. Hide

A very large, pleasant property. Sadly, the canal is no longer viable and is very overgrown. There aren't any Convenience stores in the immediate area, so a little forward planning is a must.

The cottage was very well equipped with everything you could want. Plenty of leaflets about the area. A real home from home. The local shop was 'quirky' but not stocking a great deal.
