My friends and family organised a surprise long weekend here for my 30th birthday. We were a group of 10 and stayed in Cokaynes. The cottage was just perfect, spacious for a big group and with a nice traditional feel to it. As other reviewers have commented, no the bathrooms weren't modern and yes it was a bit dark, however this really didn't matter! Great place to stay for a large group and nice touch to provide towels, beach towels, bath robes and slippers. Kitchen was fairly well equipped although we did bring quite a lot of our own things.
Having the hot tub was great and the views were brilliant over the countryside. Fantastic that the dining table turned into a snooker table! Good facilities with the games room and the well managed pool - good idea to allow private bookings for 1 hr per day (although some people did abuse this).
Convenient location for Bakewell, Matlock and loads of other tourist places and nice local country pubs (the Druid Inn was great!).
