“Hidden gem”
Reviewed 22 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Initially took a while to navigate ourselves to the property which is on top of a steep hill, and once we arrived we were very surprised. Beautifully restored cottage with all the mod-cons and beautiful views. We really enjoyed staying there. Bedrooms and bathrooms beautiful, especially the bathrooms!
The cottage is very close to High Tor (visible from the front of the property), derwent and the Heights of Abraham. We also had a lovely day out just driving around exploring. The owners kindly had a basket full of leaflets with things to do locally, which came in handy. All of the local shops and pubs' were very friendly and welcoming. I would defiantly stay again if I was in the area.

Liked best: All of it!
Liked least: If I had to be nit-picky, I would like a bath mat to avoid wet floor..but just as easily put a towel down. Also beds too soft but this is a personal preference.

“Perfect hideaway cottage.”

The cottage is set way back from the busy A6, nestled away in the hillside overlooking the Derwent and High Tor cliffs. Our poor little Smart Car struggled to get up the windy steep drive, and the ascent up the stairs tests your fitness, but believe me- it's well worth it for this absolute gem of a place. It is immaculately presented, with lovely flagstone and parquet flooring, plenty of modern features and bags of character.

Both the bedrooms are great, and the en-suite to the front bedroom is amazing- how the owner managed to get that bath all the way up there is a mystery!

Absolutely everything you'd would ever need has been catered for here, from dishwasher to broadband to satellite television. Really cosy and welcoming, it was a shame to have to leave.

Would not hesitate in returning or recommending to others.
