    Lovely cottage on the edge of some lovely countryside. Nice welcome pack which included tea, coffee, biscuits and even a bottle of wine. The immediate vicinity of the cottage lacks a pub within staggering distance but there is plenty to do within a short drive.

      Perfect home for holiday

      This is a perfect home in a great location of Derbyshire and the Peak District. Located not too far away from Matlock. The arrival process was easy with great information in advance for check in, heating operations and check out, On arrival there was a nice welcome pack and for those new to the area, a great information folder has been put together. This is a beautiful property, spacious and well decorated. There is everything you need in the large kitchen, a great comfy lounge and dining room, and a utility room with washer/dryer, The rooms upstairs are spacious and well decorated and the two bathrooms are great with brilliant power shower as well. On arrival we had an issue with the heating but with one message sent to Geoff, he rapidly had a plumber there to address the issue. This is a beautiful cottage and a warm welcome awaits you. Would definitely return again.
