Perfect location for enjoying the peak District. Ideal for friends get together. The accommodation is excellent with attention to every detail for a very comfortable stay. One of the best cottages we have stayed in with the added bonus of a great pub, the Red Lion on the door step.

“A little slice of paradise”

The cottage is in the perfect location. It's peaceful and idyllic with views and wildlife out of every window. The owners were friendly and welcoming. The cottage was immaculate and had everything you could wish for. It is far more than a rental property. The Red Lion pub which is literally 200 yards from the property serves excellent homemade food at reasonable prices. Considering its so close to the property you would never know its there. no noise at all. Lots of walks and things to do in the area. We visited Chatsworth, The Manifold Trail, DoveDale and Ilam.
We would definitely go back and highly recommend.

It's hard to find the words to thank you for taking the trouble to write such a detailed and generous review! We're so pleased that your visit to Waterfall and stay at Croft House Barn was a success. It was delightful to meet you both - and also to discover later that the cottage was even more fully equipped thanks to your thoughtful addition! Of course we'll be thrilled to be able to welcome you again. Many thanks.

“Great well equipped holiday cottage.”
Reviewed 25 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Enjoyed a great family week in this superb cottage. Beautiful countryside, fantastic walks and cycling. Having a pub with good home cooking just up the road a fantastic extra treat. Would definitely recommend a visit.

“Comfortable and well situated”
Reviewed 7 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A lovely weeks stay. This cottage was well equipped and had enough space for everyone.

Lovely seating areas outside, along with BBQ.

Beds very comfortable, and the whole cottage was converted to a very high standard. Good bathrooms with plenty of equipment.

Located perfect, good pub five minutes away, and loads of walks. Ashbourne, Leek and Alton Towers close by, never short of something to do.

“Excellent place to stay with all home comforts supplied plus more, wild flowers in every bedroom a lovely touch.”
Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

One of the best places I have stayed at, it provided everything you needed and more. There was lots of information of places to visit and in case of rain you could have still been entertained with the books cards and board games provided.
