The cottage is well placed for a variety of walks in the beautiful countryside and yet within a short driving distance of many places to visit like Holmfirth, Fox Valley and many more. The cottage itself was homely and cosy and so unbelievably well kitted out. I cooked a variety of meals for our party of six and the kitchen had every implement I could need. The welcome pack on arrival meant we could have a cuppa and relax as soon as we arrived. The upstairs was just as well planned as downstairs with hairdryers in every bedroom, big fluffy towels and luxurious quilts and pillows with top quality bedding. This is the first time we've stayed anywhere and not had a criticism., as the title says.....faultless!!! If I had one regret it would be not booking an extra night after the rest of the family had gone home, but I suppose that means we have an excuse to return .

It was clean and supplied everything we needed for our stay. We were abit dissapointed that the hot tub wasnt ready for use when we arrived the owners didnt let us know prior to our visit. Also the outside lighting is poor we struggled with the bbq due to this. Also the bbq had seen better days. All in all it was a lovely weekend and we would recommend.

We used the property as a base for a reunion of ex-university students and it served us perfectly. Plenty of comfortable beds, a great kitchen for breakfasts together and loads of room for the cars. Even better was the proximity to both Ecclesall Road and Sheffield City Centre where there are lots of great bars and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again!
