“Excellent cottage, great value for money.”
Reviewed 8 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Friendly landlady, great welcome of fresh milk, eggs and a homemade cake.
Cottage was just right for the two of us and made an excellent base for our week in the Peak District. Loved being close enough to the pub to be able walk home after a good meal.

“Absolutely Outstanding”
Reviewed 14 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Myself, partner and 2 dogs stayed here for a long weekend. The cottage is so lovely. Arrived to a huge home made Victoria sponge, milk, eggs and so many extras I couldnt name them all! There was everything you need from tea, coffee and an array of kitchen and bathroom creams and lotions even oil for cooking and herbs and spices! All of these little touches were outstanding and after staying in many cottages this made this cottage feel more like home from home than any other. The bed is incredibly comfortable and the views were stunning. The pub across the road made us feel incredibly welcome, infact everyone we met made us feel like we had been many times before. We were able to shut the front gate so the dogs were 100% secure in the garden which enabled the dogs to roam about safely. I can not recommend this cottage enough and will 100% be going back. Thank you for a lovely weekend.

“Once again excellent stay”
Reviewed 12 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This was our second short break at Townend Holiday Cottage. Once again it didn't disappoint. Love the cozy cottage. The cottage is great for us as Lyndsey welcomes our two dogs to stay. Enjoy the village and its doorstop walks. We enjoy our yearly holiday to the peaks

“Warm and cosy despite the weather!”
Reviewed 1 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Lindsey's cottage is lovely, everything you could need for a relaxing stay. The place was absolutely spotless and the delicious cake disappeared quickly. Townend cottage is easy to find, ideally placed for exploring and just across the road from the pub, which we braved the biblical weather for each night.
Recommended!

“Really comfortable and quiet, perfect getaway from the city.”
Reviewed 12 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We really enjoyed our stay here, it was exactly what we wanted, a quiet village in lovely countryside. The village was so quite it had chickens roaming free through it! It has a nice pub serving honest pub grub at good prices. The cottage was clean, the bed was very comfortable and Lindsey's Victoria sponge was delicious, which went perfect with a cup of tea after a long walk! Also there are a great collection of DVD's. We will definitely stay again if we are in the area.
