Shops and food places are just a short commute. Walk around the reservoir is absolutely refreshing. Tim and his wife were fantastic hosts! Will be coming here again in summer for sure.

It's perfect if you want a cozy weekend away. The Bulls Head pub is also a 2 minute walk down the road and offers a great choice of food and drink!!! Would definitely return :)

The bedroom in particular is great - absolutely huge. The wood burner in the lounge area is perfect for keeping warm on a cold winter evening. The location is excellent - lovely walks on the doorstep, and Hartington, which has a great pub and a couple of shops, is just a couple of miles away.
