This was our first ever stay in a cottage and this one doesn't disappoint. On arrival it was a nice warm cosy welcome with a nice bottle of bubbles and chocolates. There was also a Christmas tree and decorations up to make our stay feel christmassy. We had some snow and very cold weather during our stay and it was nice and cosy in the cottage. The addition of having a wood burner made it feel even more special. Had a fantastic meal on our last night at the bulls head just down the road. Highly recommended. Cottage is ideally situated to reach many areas of the peak district. We would not hesitate to return to a fantastic place.
This cottage was perfectly situated for our 10-day stay in the Peak District. It was conveniently located to all the sights and attractions. Walking trails located a short distance from the front door, with Bakewell and Buxton only minutes away. The cottage was as promised and the photos are accurate. It is a nice place to stay and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We would stay here again.
A wonderful well equipped cottage in a perfect location. Monyash is beautiful and we had a great night in the local pub. The cottage has everything you need and is great place to explore the Peaks. Thank you Chris & Carole...lovely personal touch when we arrived too with prodecco waiting for us, we had a great 4 days. Clare and Ant X
We've just returned from our three night stay at Avonlea and we absolutely were not disappointed! From the very first interaction we were welcomed by the very helpful owners and made to feel right at home.
Monyash itself is right in the middle of the Peak District and so the cottage proved the perfect base to explore from. The cottage is easy to find and had all the necessary comforts of home. The log fire was a very pleasant addition to curl up in front of after a long day of exploring. The whole property has everything you could need for your stay - as the description says, you need only bring food!
We did cook for ourselves one evening of our stay and the kitchen was well supplied for self-catering. I would also recommend a visit to the nearby Royal Oak pub, a short drive away, and of course the very local Bull's Head is a must. Just don't make the rookie mistake we did of not realising it didn't open until 5.30pm for dinner!
Overall I couldn't rate Avonlea highly enough and we would definitely stay there again if visiting the area.
A well equipped cottage. Excellent location for touring and walks. Very quite and peaceful area. Lovely welcome pack on arrival.
Perfect location in Monyash in the Derbyshire Peak District with plenty of walks close by. Well appointed cottage with lovely comfortable bed and huge bathroom. We were here in cold damp February but cottage central heating is very efficient plus log burning stove makes it extremely cosy. We will be back.
Monyash is a superb location for a relaxing break. There are many excellent walks in the area and great cycling too.Lots of other attractions in the area too.
The pub in the village is great, with good food.
The cottage has everything you could possibly need. The wood burner helps to make it seem even copier if you are there in the winter. The owners have thought of everything you might need - so no need to think about what you need to take. Christmas they even put up a tree with lights and lots of other Christmassy treats for you on arrival.
