We recently stayed at Christmas Cottage for a short break. Would happily have stayed longer (or moved in permanently). From the first foot through the door it was clear that this wasn't your standard holiday cottage - the owners are clearly interested whether their guests are comfortable have a good time. There are quality furnishings with everything you need; it's spotlessly clean, with lots of little extra's such as a welcome hamper, cosy dressing gowns, fresh eggs from their own hens, loads of maps / information etc. etc. We used the DVD library (not the usual free ones which come with the daily papers, but new & up-to -date ones which we hadn't seen before). Hardly used the car - did a few local walks (well sign posted, beautiful views). Can recommend the café in the next village, Bonsall - (think it was called The Fountain).The weather was good & we were lucky enough to see the view of Chatsworth from the lounge window. Overall, it was like staying with friends, in their beautiful home with them trying to make sure that you have a great time. Have already recommended & would go back.
