Very nice stay at the glass house. Spacious accommodation with lovely views. Check in and out very easy going. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast too at a time which suited us after a late night !

“Beautiful room with stunning views”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We loved our stay at The Glass House. The room was beautiful and clean with great views. A place to totally relax and a short drive to the nearest town.
We were the only guests and a delicious breakfast was presented to us each morning.
Thanks again! Would definitely recommend!

“Great place to stay & great view.”
Reviewed 3 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Wow, great accomadation, whether for a one or several nights stay.
Although part of the main house you still have privacy provided by secure door.
You can (as expected) come & go as you please.
Very modern, unable to pick fault, we had continental breakfast served in the main house, which was lovely and left to eat in private (Nice touch)
Would definately stay there again and thoroughly recommend.
Thanks Steve & Jeanette.
P.S. Great view.!

“Stunning and excellent value for money!”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Excellent accommodation, which is a self contained addition to the main house, which is like something you would see on Grand Designs. There is a toilet and kitchenette on the ground floor with an impressive staircase leading up to the spacious bedroom and ensuite bathroom. The views from the bedroom are wonderful.
The breakfast although stated as continental was more than enough with lots of choice. The hosts Janette and Steve are very friendly and welcoming, we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay for the wedding that we attended at Knockerdown Cottages just a couple of miles away. Lots to do and see around here too with Carsington Waters just a couple of miles away. Would definitely recommend this place!

“A wonderful place for a long week-end”
Reviewed 9 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The first-floor room is bright, spacious and very comfortable. There is a kitchen on the ground floor too. The property is at the top of a hill overlooking a valley so the views are wonderful through the large curtainless window. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners. The cooked and "Continental" breakfasts were spectacular.

The location is good. About 5 minutes by car to Carsington Water, about 10 minutes into Ashbourne, 20 minutes to Dovedale and 40 minutes to Chatsworth.
