My Wife, Dog and I spent a fantastic week here over New Year 2010/2011. On arrival we were warmly greeted by Marion and John (the owners) who were very welcoming and explained all that we needed to know. The cottage was absolutely charming, very well stocked with all sorts of goodies upon our arrival.
There is nothing one needs to bring (apart from clothes, and food), although i'm sure John and Marion could sort something!!! The kitchen was super - enabling us to bake cookies and a four course New Years eve feast!!
The walks from the cottage are great, with Tissington and short trek away. Being so central we were able to visit areas quickly and easily.
With the fire roaring away, a cup of tea and homemade cake - we really didn't want to head home.
Bailey (The Dog) is now requesting we install a log burning stove in the front room for him to sleep next to!!
A fantastic week away and hope very much we'll return.
