Absolutely beautiful countryside, quiet, rural, and so relaxing.....

4 of 5
The property was immaculate. Modern contemporary furniture top notch quality, and fully fitted kitchen with dishwasher fridge, microwave, etc. and the facilities were all there....TV, games room, with CD's to borrow, books and info on surrounding attractions. The week we stayed it was the very hot weather, and it was so relaxing to come back to the spacious light & cool converted barn. the ideal place to get away from it all. The hosts were friendly and helpful, and invited all visitors to a wine tasting and food one evening, in their beautiful garden.

Lovely comfortable, quirky cottage. Perfect location for Chatsworth Flower Show

4 of 5
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the cottage. Very comfortable. Well appointed kitchen, comfortable beds with lovely duvets and bed linen, great shower and lots of hot water. This is a cottage that is well looked after and obviously loved. Our only small issue was the number of air fresheners in every room which we removed for the time of our stay. Many thanks for a great stay. Lynn Thomas
