We stayed at Blakelow Cottages (Cranberry Cottage) for 6 days in mid May. The welcome we got from Steve on arrival was excellent, and the cottage was immaculate. It was well equipped, perfectly laid out, and very comfortable. The cottage is in a great location for visiting this bit of Derbyshire, with Chatsworth very nearby, and also close to Bakewell and Matlock.
The cottages are in a very peaceful location, with Steve and Phil's hens running around, and 4 pigs, some of whom seem to find their way into the freezer in the form of excellent bacon. There are also fresh Hens eggs to buy to make an excellent breakfast if that is what you fancy.
We would recommend Blakelow cottages without hesitation, and will be returning
Best bit - lunch at Charlies in Baslow. Worst bit? Trip to Matlock Bath - don't go there unless you want to ride the cable car, or you are a biker with a slot machine fixation and a hunger for fish and chips . . .
The rest of Derbyshire is stunning!!
