Lots of little extras that made you feel welcome.

Christmas Cottage is a delightful property, cosy and comfortable & well positioned to tour the surrounding area. Charlotte provided some lovely touches such as the welcome pack for us and our dog & she is just a call away if any advise is needed. The kitchen is a little small but well equipped with good quality utensils, etc. Lounge, bedroom and baRead morethroom are all nicely decorated and very comfortable. Pub next door was very welcoming for us & our dog and food is great. Hide

Cosy little cottage , great place to getaway from it all

Reviewed by Robert 27th September 2019

We found Christmas Cottage to be very, very comfortable and perfectly situated to visit all those places we wanted to see. Our only reservation is that, if like us, you are getting on a bit, the stairs are very steep and not suitable for the less agile which is why we couldn`t recommend it to our age group. Otherwise its perfect.

Cottage was wonderful, very romantic and perfectly situated to explore the Peak District. Great pub right next door. The welcome pack was a marvellous addition.

Beautiful cottage which is extremely well equipped and clean. Charlotte is a great host and the welcome package was a lovely edition - thank you. Plenty of instructions on arrival as well as Charlotte being at the end of the phone if needed. Great location for travelling to all main places of interest. Short drive to a supermarket. The stairs are sRead moreteep as described so if you have mobility issues you would really struggle. We had a lovely stay here and would recommend. Hide
