We stayed here for a week in October (my husband I and the dog) and it was lovely. There were scones, clotted cream and jam on arrival as well as a personal message from the owner with his contact details on for any queries. The owner also sent me a text to say when the cottage was ready. I thought this was very professional and reassuring.

The only little niggles i had was the tv reception was hit and miss and the cottage was very low in places, however it was a cottage in the middle of the derbsyhire dales so really is to be expected!! The location was excellent, a minutes walk from the village and the facilities within the cottage were high quality. I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing and comfortable break in a gorgous village.

In terms of the village – the pubs were all really nice, plus the new restaurant 1530 was very good. Treak Cliffe cavern was worth a village, as was Chatsworth house plus the plague village Eyam and the museum. A lot of history and very interesting. If your a bird lover a visit to Riverside Cafe at Hathersage (just outside) is a must…
