“Good cottage and location”

Stayed with daughter, her partner, 20 month old grandchild and my dog. Cottage was ideally located for good walks within a short travelling distance eg Carsington Water, Tittersworth reservoir, Dovedale, Ilam Park. At all of these there were really good play parks for the baby while I took the dog on longer walks. The large enclosed garden at Birch cottage was the best I have found for the dog - she could not get out at all. Owners very accommodating and friendly. Will visit again.

“Great location for Alton Towers”

Good accommodation at this farm in the countryside. We stayed in Birch Cottage which can sleep 4 people. Easy drive to the theme park in the morning and about 10 minutes into the nearest town. Some good country pubs nearby too if you don't fancy cooking, though the cottage does have everything you would need.

We stayed here for 5 days. The cottage was very clean and comfy. We had forgotten our towels and I asked the owner if we could pay to hire some - she very kindly provided 2 each at no cost. The cottage has it's own lovely garden and is very convenient for Alton Towers and Ashbourne. We had our shopping delivered (although there is a M&S food just 10 minutes up the road!)
This is the second time we have stayed at these cottages and I think they are lovely. The setting is picturesque and it's a very reasonable price.

We stayed there from the 1st -3rd of June. Linda and Paul were very welcoming and accommodated for our every need. The location is ideal for Alton Towers. We would definitely recommend it and will hopefully be staying there again in the future.

“Lovely cottage, well presented and friendly owners.”

We stayed in this cottage over the weekend because it was cheap and in a perfect location. We didn't expect it to be such good value for money. The owners were very helpful and understanding RE our two dogs. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen is massive with plenty of appliances! The cottage is surrounded by various different walks with great views. There is also nice pubs nearby and a shop 5 minutes down the road. If you are there for a week away there is also a large M&S only 15 minutes away. There are two shower rooms downstairs so if you are two couples staying as we were we had a bathroom each! The only criticism we had was that the living area could do with another armchair/sofa to make it feel a little more social/make better use of the space when relaxing in the cottage. We will definitely be back!
