As dog owners it was lovely to stay in such a luxury property. Over Haddon is a beautiful, sleepy little village with great walks right from the door and a nice hotel/pub on the doorstep. We didn't even use our car as you can walk to the pub and even catch the bus into Bakewell from right outside the cottage. We were there over the Christmas Market weekend and got to help switching on the Christmas lights which was a really memorable experience. We will definitely be back.

Very clean and nicely furnished in fabulous converted mill. Comfortable beds and well stocked kitchen. Very handy for the Monsal Trail and great walks in every direction. Recommend bringing a torch if you plan walking to the hotel (approx 1 mile) and book a table to ensure they are serving food as they sometimes shut the kitchen early. We ate at the Red Lion in Litton which serves good food and beer and has log fires (2 miles). The apartment is so comfortable and well equipped though ...so eat and drink in and enjoy! We will certainly book again when next in the area.
