This is a lovely house, that the owners have tastefully renovated to a high standard. It provides ample space for a family of 10 with 2 small babies. The setting in the South of the Peak District is ideal for exploring this lovely area.

The Cafe next door is closed permanently, we drove up there a bit earlier hoping to have some lunch before checking in etc to find it was closed for good. We had a wonderful time, lots of things to do within the area, this was a good base to discover the local area. House very well equipped for cooking.

Really lovely house in a super location. Beautiful views. The house is very well equipped and the bedrooms are spacious and the beds very comfortable. There are toys and games for the children. The open fire was a real treat. It's a beautiful part of the UK with lots of great pubs and tourists sites quite close.
