“Not as good as expected”
Reviewed 11 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

I had expected so much more from this cottage.
When we arrived the cottage had been empty for a few days and felt very cold. I think it would have been nice if the heating had been on for a while to heat it through. It wasn't while the next day that it warmed through.
The cottage does not have a freezer, so if like us, take food for the week ( no shops in village) you have a problem. We were lucky that some other rooms were empty and the owner let us use the freezer boxes at the top of the other fridges.
The Cottage is very dog friendly. It has fabulous views from the back and a very large field that the dogs can run about. I had no complaints about that at all.
The furniture in the lounge is past it and needs an immediate replacement. When sat on by the end of the evening you are 6 inches off the floor and have great difficulty getting back out of it.
The kitchen has all you need and pots and cutlery are fine. Oven clean etc so it was very useable.
Upstairs the bedrooms are adequate. Very clean and quite comfy. Not big, but you only sleep in them.
The bathroom has a shower which again needs an immediate replacement. I have never known a shower to be still in any bathroom that you are expected to shower in. I would like the owner to have a shower there and say that they find it acceptable for guests.
The cottage is very dark inside and the lighting very dim. The furniture is not helping the overall look of the property. The darkness hides a small lip between the kitchen and living area floor, unfortunately my husband stubbed his toes on it and broke one of his toes.
Overall it is not the best property I have stayed in and wouldn't go back. I also think that there are much better area's. There is not even a shop. Nothing really of any interest here and having driven around saw far better places to stay where you don't have to drive to to start your walk.
I have been very honest with this review and feel I can't recommend it

“Delightful cottage, fabulous views”
Reviewed 30 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My old friend and I stayed here for a week to have a relaxing holiday and to celebrate her birthday. The cottage itself is stone built, part of an old converted farmhouse, in the tiny village of Peak Forest in the Peak National Park. Inside, it is very simple and unspoilt, with stone flagged and wooden floors, a lovely wooden table and dresser, and all kitchen needs supplied, including tea towels, bin bags, cutlery, china, and pots and pans. There was a toaster, a microwave (we couldn't use it, being old school and not very tech-savvy!) , a very modern electric cooker and hob, and a fridge.
The living room was compact but quite adequate for 2 people, with a large sofa and chair, and a TV. In the corner was a delightful curly cast iron staircase. Upstairs, there was a double room with a double bed, lovely large wooden wardrobe and dressing table, and a twin room with 2 single beds. The only downfall was the single bed I slept in was very creaky. The bathroom had toilet, shower and hand basin, and towels were supplied by the owner. The shower unit was not the best, we couldn't adjust the heating level and the shower head could do with replacing . . but it was adequate. Everything was spotlessly clean.
The living room had french doors which led out the back onto a simple garden with table and chairs, and a view over the hills which was breathtaking. We spent many a morning looking out at the sheep which come right up to the stone wall of the garden. Incredibly peaceful at the back. There is a pub down the road in the village, and a supermarket in nearby Chapel-en-le-Frith. There are many walks and wonderful things to see within a short drive from the cottage, and the owner has supplied many leaflets and booklets to give you an idea of what to see. The cottage is dog friendly too, and although we stayed in the back part of the building, there are 2 other rental accommodations within the house. The cottage is centrally heated and warm. We had a lovely week, and I would recommend it to my friends. Perhaps one small downside, the road on which the cottage sits can be quite busy in the morning, and because of it's grade 2 listing, double glazing cannot be installed. Just a small thing really! Altogether a lovely place

“Ideal for dog lovers”

This cottage, part of a converted farm complex, is well situated for a holiday in the Peak District. The gardens are enclosed and even our lively Patterdale terrier could find no way out. The view from the cottage is superb with rolling hills and sheep meadows. The cottage is well appointed although the lounge furniture is getting rather worn. We found the spiral staircase easy to use and the bedrooms were very nice. The owners who lived in the complex were very helpful and pleasant.
