WE had a really good week at Birch Cottage. It is very well appointed, was clean with plenty of crockery, cutlery etc. As there isn't mobile phone signal in the village, it was very useful to have a good wifi connection in the cottage. Hartington is a lovely village and everyone is so friendly. The surrounding area is spectacular and walks along the Tissington Trail and Monsal Trail were really enjoyable.
We would thoroughly recommend this.
My partner and I stayed at Alders Cottage from 2nd to 12th July 2018 and absolutely loved it. The cottage itself was the perfect size for the two of us; it was cosy and homely, had all of the essentials and was very clean. We loved the patio and the lovely views of the sheep and fields, and it was a bonus to have an off-road parking space round the back of the property.
Our only small quibble would be that, as the bathroom is a bit like a wet room (no shower cubicle, just a tray and a glass panel) and the water pressure is high, the floor gets rather wet and it would be handy to have a mop.
The cottage is also the perfect base for visiting so many places in the Peak District and we visited as many as possible, including Chatsworth House, Buxton, Matlock, Matlock Bath and the Heights of Abraham, Ilam and Dovedale, all within a forty-minute drive. It was lovely to come back to this cottage after busy day of walking and sightseeing.
Alton itself is also a lovely little village and we highly recommend The Bulls Head pub which is just a minute's walk from the cottage.
