A lovely well appointed cottage in the Derbyshire countryside. The owners had checked out many local places to visit. The Bulls Head in Monyash was wonderful for dinner as well as the little cafe that was next to it - all doggie friendly too. Sadly, due to the weather - Dennis, we had to cut our break short but will be back soon.

This was a beautiful cottage with lovely rooms and a pretty communal garden. The cottage was lovely and warm (Sept/Oct visit). Very central for visiting different places. Loved all the local pubs the food was excellent. Im sure we will visit again.

The cottage was very clean & the biscuits, milk, tea & coffee were very much appreciated on our arrival. Endmoor Farm is in a good position just 10mins walk from The Royal Oak pub which was friendly & did excellent meals. It is also just 15mins drive to Bakewell & close to some nice walks (Lissington Trail, Lithkill Dale & Monsall Trail) & to ChatsRead moreworth House (about 30mins by car). The cottage gardens are communal with the other cottages in the complex & well maintained. Sunny too for us! Hide

Rakes Cottage is an excellent place to stay, as stated above five stars for everything. Lovely communal gardens, really convenient parking, the whole site in such good order. Our second visit and will be back next year.

Reviewed by Christine 21st July 2018

Need to consider the "shared" garden, especially if neighbours have dogs. Can become a bit crowded. We had six dogs and ten people "Off Lead" during our stay. Yes the people are to blame not the dogs. Maybe keep dog numbers down at same times. (Booking Control).
