“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 7 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Spent a lovely week at Thatch End for New Year. Couldn't recommend this place enough. Exceeded our expectations in every way. We found it to be more spacious than expected from the pictures and at the same time it had a lovely cosy feel about it. Loads of room for people to sleep. Very comfortable for 2 families with each bedrooms being at different ends of the landing with a bathroom. Tried to book for next year but booked up already.

“Brilliant for 2 families”
Reviewed 11 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We met up with some friends at Thatch End cottage - 4 adults, 4 children (Ages 11 - 15). The cottage is beautiful and provided us with the combination of comfort, practicality and luxury that we required (wifi was a total bonus!). The owners were very flexible about extra beds for children and the fact that the cottage is on the path to Chatsworth made walks from the front door a delight! The log burner in the dining room made meals last the evening and the location, opposite a stream and pretty bridge, 2 minutes walk to a traditional (yet modern!) Derbyshire pub, and 5 mins walk to a very well stocked shop was perfect. I'm sure we'll be back.

“Beautiful cottage, Excellent location, great family holiday.”
Reviewed 23 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is a lovely, well maintained cottage perfectly positioned for access to Chatsworth House and Grounds and the facilities in Baslow and Bakewell beyond. The cottage is well furnished and stocked and the log burner in the dinning room was very welcome in the evenings.

“Such a perfect place to stay!”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We spent a wonderful week at Thatch End Cottage in September 2015 - our second visit to this holiday cottage. It was just as lovely as the first! This cottage really is perfect! It is decorated beautifully - contemporary but with lovely original features. It has such a nice cosy feel but with plenty of room for six people (or more!).


The bedrooms are very comfortable and the bathrooms are luxurious. We had great weather while we were there and managed to have a couple of bbqs which was a real treat too. The location couldn't be more perfect - close to a useful little shop and a choice of pubs, as well as great walks around Chatsworth. There is so much to do and explore, we'll have to return!


Polly, the owner is lovely - so polite and friendly and made the booking experience very easy indeed - thank you Polly for a wonderful holiday - we can't wait to come back soon!

“A lovely holiday in a lovely cottage”
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The cottage is really well equipped with everything you could need. It is in a perfect location, being on a footpath to Chatsworth and having a pub less than 200 yards away. Our party ranged in age from 2 to 83 and also included a Labrador. We all enjoyed ourselves very much!

This is an absolute gorgeous chocolate box cottage. Spacious, cozy, and well presented.
It's clean with a very well stocked kitchen. Plenty of glasses, crockery, etc.
Location is great too. Perfect for Chatsworth and Bakewell. Pubs close by and a small shop which had essentials.
Perfect for groups or families.
Can't wait to return.

“Fantastic location, superb facilities, well worth a stay.”
Reviewed 25 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Our stay coincided with a milestone birthday for a family member and Thatch End Cottage provided us with a base to celebrate in style and comfort. Close to the grounds of Chatsworth House and within easy reach of all local amenities we had a brilliant few days. Cosy, spacious with all mod cons. It is a great spot to relax and enjoy the surrounding countryside.
