“A beautiful house in idyllic surroundings”
Reviewed 1 April 2013 for a stay in April 2012

This is a beautiful house in idyllic surroundings, presented to a very high standard. It was a delight to be able to sit in the lean-to conservatory and watch the lambs in the field no more than a few feet away. It was quite surreal to sit in the lounge and watch an episode of 'Homes under the Hammer' filmed in the same room!

A perfect location for exploring the Peak District and destinations such as Buxton, Bakewell and the Heights of Abraham. An added bonus was the discovery of the Wincle Brewery in a Farmyard just over a mile along the lane! The Ship Inn at Wincle is also highly recommended, especially for its food.

“Absolutely Wonderful!!”
Reviewed 27 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We travelled with our two children and their Grandad and Auntie. We chose this cottage, partly because of it's location and also as we had seen it on the 'Homes Under the Hammer' programme and liked what we saw. We were not disappointed. Located in an idylic setting, the cottage is lovingly and beautifully decorated and a joy to stay in. It has a lovely garden which our children enjoyed playing in (there are a selection of outdoor toys in the shed) as well as the use of a playground and football field in the community centre directly opposite. We had a very useful welcome pack waiting for us from the owners and the neighbours were very friendly and helpful. The cottage was ideally situated to gain access to all that is on offer in the Peak District and surrounding area. Alton Towers, Buxton, Bakewell, Trentham Monkey Forest and Manifold Valley Cycle Track to name but a few. We were busy everyday and it was great to come back to some peace and quiet at the cottage. Thank you so much to the owners for sharing this wonderful house with us!!

“Perfect for a family of 6 with 2 pint-size”
Reviewed 22 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We took advantage of the extra long weekend and stayed at Gun End Cottage for Jubilee week. With 3 double bedrooms and 1 twin it was perfect for our family - 6 adults, a 2-year old and a 12-week old. It's charmingly old-fashioned with leaded windows and feature fireplaces, but has all the mod cons such as power showers, washer, dryer, TV and DVD.
It's literally in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by sheep and a handful of other cottages. You'll find the nearest shops in Leek, about 5 miles away, and the nearest pub about a mile and a half down the road in Wincle.
We'd recommend Gun End to anyone looking for a chilled out base to explore the peaks.

“Great family holiday in a rural location”
Reviewed 8 February 2012 for a stay in August 2011

We took our three children (ages 4-6) for a two week family holiday. Blessed by good weather, which helped. They (and we) had a fantastic time and they never stop talking about the things they did there - both the location itself and the surrounding area of the Peaks. Although on the edges of the Peaks, the house is very close to the Roaches area which has to rank as some of the most outstanding countryside in the UK, IMO. The house was well equipped, though the DVD player didn't work properly which seems to have been noted by previous guests and not rectified. We also had a problem with the heating, which took the owners a few days to sort out, though they did make every effort to resolve it. Beautiful quiet situation. We tried to book it for the following year but left it too late and it was booked out! :-(
