“Great get away”

We really enjoyed our stay. Great location within easy driving distance of Bakewell, Ashbourne & Chatsworth. The cottage is cozy, well equipped and has lovely views over open fields.

So pleased you had a nice time at the cottage. We are so lucky with the views and I am glad the weather was good so you could enjoy both the BBQ and the hills. Do come back and see us again when you need a Derbyshire fix!

“A cosy country retreat”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a wonderfully relaxing break, at the cosy Cheese Press Cottage. We just wish it had been winter, so we could have lit the wood burner! We enjoyed the peace and quiet, and were greatly amused by the ducks racing outside the front door, as well as visits from the chickens and dogs. We were delighted that there is a shower over the bath (which we couldn't see in the photos of the cottage, nor see mentioned in the description).

The cottage is well equipped, with lovely original features. We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio, with sheep and cows the only noises audible, as well as watching some beautiful sunsets. The cottage has plenty of local information. We can highly recommend the Cheese Shop and Village Stores in Hartington, as well as cycling along the High Peak Trail, catching a steam train into Matlock, and visiting Poole's Cavern in Buxton.

We were very grateful for Jane's directions (warning us that our SatNav would send us the wrong way), as well as her efficiency at responding to emails. We received a lovely warm welcome, but were then left alone and given absolute privacy, so the cottage very much became 'ours' during our stay.

Following our return home, we really miss the seclusion and peace. Everywhere suddenly seems so busy, and so full of people!

A perfect stay-thank you!

Thank you for lovely review and I'm so pleased you had a nice few days exploring the area. I still haven't done the steam train so that is something I must do soon.
Thank you for mentioning about the shower and I will amend my descriptions and also take a better photo of the bathroom.
I also don't think there is a photo of the table in the sitting room so I need to get the camera out again!

I'm really pleased you enjoyed staying at Cheese Press Cottage and thank you very much for the nice review.
I keep trying to add things to the kitchen so that it has everything when people arrive and have just bought some espresso cups - it will soon be better than my kitchen!
Hope you get chance to come back to Biggin Grange in the future.

Thanks for the lovely review. You certainly got the extremes in the weather over the 48 hours you were here! We are really lucky having the Tissington Trail so near and glad you managed to make use of it.
It was very nice to meet you both and hope you can come back in the future.

“Perfect holiday”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This is a beautiful cottage, with gorgeous views and access to Biggin Dale. Jane is welcoming and helpful, and the cottage is clean and incredibly well-stocked for all your cooking needs! Ideal for a warm, comfortable, homely get-away in the middle of beautiful surrounding countryside. Thank you, we would love to come back again!
