Location is perfect - many great places to see from Lady Bower reservoir on the doorstep to Castleton, Bakewell and Hathersage all Close by. The cottage itself was the perfect size to accommodate us - we were 2 families of 4 adults and 5 children. Very inviting and cosy. Very well equipped kitchen with all that you need. Plenty of bathroom / shower space too plus loads of towels and bedding and cushions which was all most welcome! The hot tub was a real bonus and the kids especially loved it. It was even on warm and ready to use as we arrived. It's a real bonus that Tesco deliver home shops and we had internet ordered before we set off and the groceries arrived an hour after we arrived. Parking is good too. Anna and her family are great - not imposing (as we've experienced before) - but lovely on arrival and always happy to help out with our random questions!! Genuinely no negatives - you're in the Peak District so wi-fi comes and goes but we knew that and it adjoins a working farm so you can hear the cows mooing - but that all adds to the charm. Even a Wii for the kids along with working Sky box and DVD player Would definitely recommend - very good value Thanks again Anna and family. David And Sue Giles 27/12/16 to 03/01/17

It is a great place to stay for this sort of thing. It is very old and quirky but charming and has great character. It is also very comfortable, with a lovely cosy lounge, plenty of sofas for everyone to sit on, and felt very homely. The beds were comfortable too, and we had enouigh beds for various groups of childen to share which was good. We enjoyed all sitting round the huge dinning table for meals, and the house is very well equipped. The owners were helpful in providing information before and during our stay, and there were christmas decorations up as we stayed in December, so it felt festive too. I loved having a go at cooking on the aga, with the help of the Mary Berry aga cookbook provided. Managed a sunday roast for 10 of us! This house was perfect for our needs, and I would recommend it to groups meeting up. It is not quite a rural as I had imagined but this was not a problem. Do take note of the directions provided by the owner to get there first time, but once you have found it then it is easy to come and go. Good facilities nearby for shopping and eating out. We would stay again. Thank you to the owners and thank you from my son for returning his i-pad charger he left behind!
