A return visit to the Garden Loft for a longer stay this year and once again Mr Darcy the cocker spaniel and I had a great time. It is in such a lovely, quiet location but with the Peaks and Moors easily accessible for long walks, bluebell woods, and big views. The loft is perfectly equipped for self catering and the fully enclosed courtyard gardenRead more is such a bonus. We had cosy evenings snoozing and reading by the fire, and I'm already looking forward to returning again next year. Hide

I had a lovely relaxing Christmas stay at the Garden Loft. The winter weather wasn't great, but we were cosy and warm with a plentiful supply of fuel to keep the log burner going.

The enclosed field next to the cottage was a godsend for my dogs and they loved jumping around and sniffing. Hide

Paul was very welcoming, and the wine / milk / egss were a lovely touch. The backdrop was beautiful and we were very lucky with the weather. The dog field was ideal as the garden, although lovely, was small for two adults and two medium sized dogs. Paul was also very helpful when we needed a hairdryer and an airer. Very relaxing holiday!
