Stayed in The Heathers for 1 week 15th - 22nd May 2014. Cottage is superb, very clean and well equipped. Lovely large open plan kitchen, dining and lounge, two very comfortable sofas and nice tv. The whole site is very well looked after, the grounds are well tended and the grass cut once a week. The seperate games/activity room is a godsend for families on a wet day and commands a lovely view across the field to Derwent Reservoir. There are many opportunities for walking locally, and cycling is also popular. Good local pubs abound, the nearest is a short car trip of about 2 miles, and most serve excellent evening meals. This really is a peaceful and relaxing spot and well worth a visit. Vouchers are also provided to enable guests to use the pool and gym facilities at the nearby Slaley Hall Hotel.
