“Perfect cottage, idyllic location”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Stayed here for 3 nights during August. It's a beautiful, spotlessly clean and well equipped cottage. I particularly enjoyed the walk from the cottage to Dovedale stepping stones. The milk, bread and wine left for us was a nice touch. I will most definitely be returning!

“Should be a Best Kept Secret”
Reviewed 22 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Well thought out cottage with almost everything provided.
Very clean and with all the mod cons you need.
Great location a couple of hundred yards from the River Dove/Dovedale walks and a short drive to the bike rides on Tissington Trail - hill out of the village is too steep for most youngsters to appreciate?
Parking space on site and public parking just up the lane (imagine it is busy in high season?)
Good use of ground floor with a back kitchen/utility, separate dining room from kitchen and living room with range/open fire, tv, bookcase, games, etc
Wifi works throughout.
Large master bedroom (with a huge bed), small double room and a box room with bunks - We have tall 9 and 12 years olds and was a little tight.
Separate shower and bath handy.
Sleeps 6 but would need to get on well
Very good communication/booking/info from the owners and friendly neighbours
Bottle of "house" wine, milk and a fresh loaf was a nice touch, as were the logs and coal as it was a cold weekend.
Rental includes use of the BBQ and 4 bikes. Not used by us but looked clean and well maintained
Looking forward to booking again (but don't tell everyone!)

“Lovely cottage in a great location, it was everything we were looking for.”

We arrived at the cottage early evening, my daughter and her partner had arrived the previous day and we were welcomed with a lovely meal and a real fire. Fortunately we had glorious weather during our stay so could explore the surrounding area each day. There were many good walks from the cottage itself..we eat in the George in Alstonefield one evening. The food was good if a little overpriced. The cottage was very well equipped Nd extremely comfortable, it had everything we could want. Vicki was really helpful and communication was excellent. We would definitely recommend the cottage and area and certainly intend visiting again next year.
