First impressions were good. Nice, clean and tidy. A welcome pack was there on our arrival. Tea and biccies where much needed after a 5:30 car journey with the dogs. Loads of information regarding the cottage, local walks and walks further afield.
On closer inspection we found the bathroom was dusty where the cleaner had missed the edges of the tiles but this was only surface dirt. Overall a nice little cottage. On emptying our cases and putting empty cases in the downstairs cupboard we found a sign requesting that pets be kept downstairs and off the furniture. We had checked before booking that our 5 dogs would be allowed in the property and this was the first notice we had had regarding no pets upstairs and kept of the furniture. With 5 dogs this was an impossibility for us. The rear garden is just really a 15 foot narrow walkway to gain access to the washing machine and tumble dry. A lot, lot smaller than we expected but we managed.
The heating was on when we arrived but seemed to be a bit hit and miss at times. We did not call out the caretaker as we didn’t want someone coming in. We left the gas fire on all the time and this sufficed.
Overall, we enjoyed staying at this property and apologise for not keeping our dogs downstairs and off the furniture (We did take throws with us and and used these to protect the beds and furniture. We always do when we have ours dogs with us. If we had known the owners rules, maybe we would not have booked the cottage). We will not be staying here again due to our realisation that we are not healthy enough for the Peak Districts and for the unknown restrictions regarding the dogs.
