Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you, Anya, for a lovely stay at Toodles Cottage. We had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed every detail of the house, including the woodburner and the fully equipped kitchen. Communication with Anya was swift, warm and friendly. We hope to come back and enjoy the view from the garden over the rolling hills, reading books from the most amazing Scarthin bookshop.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this fabulous property. It had been tastefully decorated for Christmas and it was a very nice touch for our Christmas holiday away from home.

The property has everything you could need and wish for during your stay. And we took full advantage of the fire in the cold weather- it only added to the atmosphere.

The kitchen was very well equipped, the master bedroom was very comfortable and again lovely decorated (we didn’t use the second bedroom) and the bathroom + laundry room were clean and comfortable.

We didn’t use the garden because of the time of year but imagine it to be as wonderful as the rest of the property.

Overall we had a great stay and we enjoyed visiting the nearby towns and countryside.

We would thoroughly recommend.

Thank you again.

Very comfortable and well appointed cottage. Great location for exploring that part of Derbyshire.

  • 5 of 5

Toodles Cottage was very welcoming with nice details like slippers waiting for us, basic items in the food cupboard and very clean. The kitchen had everything we needed and more.The log burning stove made evenings so cosy and warm. Both the bedrooms had very comfortable beds with a choice of duvet weights if we wished to change as well as lovely fluffy towels. The garden was very pretty set on several levels with a great view from the top. Sadly it was rather cool and damp for us to use the patio set.

The cottage is very well situated for many attractions and also shops. The parking was a little tricky but we were given helpful instructions on the way to park.

Altogether we had a very enjoyable stay and would recommended Toodles Cottage to others wanting to stay in the area.

Excellently equipped and lovely homely cottage

  • 5 of 5

From the initial booking the owners were so welcoming and went out of their way to make us feel welcome in their property and provided us with well thought out and useful information about the cottage and our booking. The cottage it's self was amazing, beautifully presented, excellently equipped and instantly felt like a home from home. The cottage has everything you could need regardless of whether you're staying for a short getaway or a fortnights break. The rear garden was great to relax in and had an amazing view. We couldn't have wished for a nicer accommodation for our break. We'll certainly recommend to others and will try to return.

Beautiful place, with amazing garden.

  • 5 of 5

The place was lovely, and Anya was very friendly and easy to communicate with via text. There were slippers for all of us and some little packets of fudge which was a lovely touch!

Our favourite part was the garden which was truly remarkable, it was very well kept with lots of little solar powered lights and gets lots of sun in the morning; the top tier was a bit of struggle to get to for anyone with knee/hip problems but the view was brilliant and the furniture up there is great.

The only thing we would say would be that the parking is not easy! It is on a busy road that happens to be very steep, often we parked down the hill and walked back up, this was no problem for us but may be difficult for not so confident drivers.

We would love to come and stay here again, so would definitely recommend!
