“Thank you Hog Cottage for a truly lovely stay!”
Reviewed 7 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I've just returned from a lovely break at Hog Cottage. The cottage is so cute, it's really well kitted out with everything you need plus lots of little special touches.

The cottage was ideally located with so much to do in this gorgeous area of the country. Lots of nice shops and restaurants within walking distance, we particularly liked Le Minstral.

We parked both outside the cottage and at the bottom of the hill and had no problems.

The cottage was clean and so cosy and warm, we had such a relaxing time we didn't want to leave. Can't wait to go back.

“A disappointing cottage”
Reviewed 2 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Just stayed a week at Hog Cottage.
Car parking is a nightmare! It's not just the difficult access but the inability to use the limited space outside the cottage because the road is too narrow to allow room for other neighbours to pass with their vehicles. The road itself is steep with a very sharp bend. The bend is so sharp that you need to take two goes at it in order to turn the corner. All this on a steep and potentially icy road justifies my comment of "nightmare"
The bed in the main bedroom is extremely uncomfortable! The mattress has a huge hollow where some very heavy person has slept. It was so bad I even checked to see if some of the wooden slats had broken!
The lean-too dining room is cold and has no views with a roof high stone wall positioned just 6ft from the windows!
The only view from the front is the stone wall of the back of the terraced houses on the opposite side of the narrow road.
All in all disappointing.

I'm really sorry to read this feedback from one of our guests. as we are really proud of the 100% positive feedback which we have received from guests staying with us over the past 15 years in our comment book.

I am sorry this guest had problems parking at Hog Cottage. We recommend that guests park at the bottom of the hill. This is clear on the website. I myself park there every time i visit and i have no issues what so ever about parking.

The mattress is only two years old and is very soft which doesn’t suit everyone. The bed at Hog Cottage is a divan and therefore does not have slats underneath. We are changing the whole bed in April, but only for the reason of getting a King size rather than a double and changing the mattress to a medium soft.

The dining room has very efficient electric heating but this does need to be switched on 10 minutes before use.

We don't claim to have amazing views but we do have a cottage which oozes character and charm.

We appreciate guest feedback and will take it on board any criticism and have used customer comments to improve many aspects of the Cottage over the years.

“Perfect stay”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We were looking for our stay in England for an authentic "british" house and we found it in the hog cottage. All the furniture and the little things to make it cosy were done with a lot of love for details. Unlike to other holiday homes of our experience, the kitchen is completely equipped, including e.g. scales, toaster, microwave, ... . The parking is not that terrible as written by other guests, just unload the car and park it at the T-junction 40 yards away. The house is located in a quiet area at the outskirts of "Wirksworth, Gem of the Peak". The little town offers a lot of nice shops and restaurants. We also loved the carbootsales, the walkings with our dog and the silence. Highly recommended for a romantic and relaxed stay.
