Staveley is a great location too, with little shops for browsing crafts and local produce, through to riverside walks and kids play areas. The Eagle and Child pub was well worth the visit - clean plates all round, friendly staff and a good pint. All in all, a great stay. Thank you.

This cottage literally has everything you could ever need under one roof and more. It is extremely child friendly with lots of toys and books for them to enjoy. The owners have even provided a child gate which is very handy, although it would be beneficial to have one for the top and bottom of the stairs. We were also slightly disappointed on this visit that the cottage wasn't as clean as it usually is. From experience though this must have just been an oversight on this occasion as normally it is pristine! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay though and can't wait to return again soon.

The location is beautiful and we had no problem getting around. We loved the Inn at the end of the road, it's very busy but you can see why! Great food and very friendly. Would definitely recommend.
