    Great location for the Peak District. Appreciate we visited towards the end of the summer season, however agree with previous guests the cottage needs a deep clean along with a few maintenance issues. Was ok for our weekend break as we only used it as a base & were out every day, but has so much potential!

    Very dirty property. I had to Hoover all the cobwebs round the ceilings and get rid of all the spiders. I had to clean the kitchen cupboards and handles as they were stick. Bathroom had urine down the outside front of the toilet and shower doors hadn't been cleaned. I did washing and went to use the tumble dryer as there was no clothes aired but the tumble dryer was full of dirty bed linen.

    Great base to explore the area with Matlock, Buxton, Chatsworth, Bakewell and all the other hamlets within easy reach. The cottage is on a very busy road (double glazing helps with the road noise) and visibility getting out can be difficult. On the surface it is a very pretty cottage, but IMO it would benefit from a good clean and a lick of paint. The small bedroom is quite tight for access and my kids got quite frustrated with it... But we all slept well on the very comfortable beds. Owner was nice and friendly offering ideas about where to eat (Shallimar, Darley Dale fish bar 2 good options).

    Dove Cottage was a perfect base for our first holiday in Derbyshire. Comfortable, supportive beds, fluffy towels, lovely living room and a well-equipped kitchen. Although I was surprised to find no fewer than six oven gloves but only one teatowel. Good to find an apron, which holiday cottages often don't offer. There was a washing machine but we couldn't find a clothes airer, so we made creative use of the stair gate! The weather was very warm so we didn't need to use the open fire, which was a shame as it was tempting. More thorough hoovering of furniture is needed to remove cobwebs from bookshelves and dust from less-used chairs. But overall, it was clean. Location is wonderful, although it's a shame there isn't a grocery shop in the village offering more than the Post Office, which has limited offering and opening times. Nearest good shop is Spar and Co-op in Darley Dale. But Dove Cottage is only a stroll from the Peak Village shopping centre (Cotton Traders, Mountain Warehouse, general clothing, cashpoint), good eating at the Grouse and Claret pub, and bus stops to Chatsworth, Matlock and Bakewell. It's good to have a parking space at the back of the house. We used public transport a lot (it's frequent and relatively inexpensive) and got discounted entry at Chatsworth and Heights of Abraham (Matlock Bath) on production of a bus ticket. There is an excellent network of footpaths in all directions from the door leading to varied places such as the Nine Ladies stone ring (3 miles) and Haddon Hall (1 1/2 miles). There are footpaths to Chatsworth and Bakewell if you want to hike longer distances. We enjoyed our stay at Dove Cottage and would recommend it to others.

    Lovely cottage, great village location in the Peak District, ideal base for exploring the fabulous unspoilt towns and countryside. All rooms decorated to a high standard. Only suggestion would be to take some picnic chairs with you as the garden furniture is a bit spartan.

    We were visiting from Canada for a family wedding nearby and as our UK family are somewhat scattered we were looking for a location that was central and picturesque. This cottage hit the nail on the head. The location was fantastic. The cottage was so well equipped and comfortable. We all loved it. And I especially loved the cottage garden. It is what I strive for at home but unfortunately Canadian winters can make it tricky. The owner was so helpful with the queries that we had and so responsive. Would really love to visit here again next time we are in the uk

    Several important issues which I have taken up with the agent I booked with. These include standard of cleanliness, very poor condition of some furnishings, lack of organisation or consideration for guests and health and safety issues. On the positive side a good location for sightseeing, allows dogs, plenty of games etc for children and a lovely bathroom. Sadly I am unlikely to use this cottage again because of my own experience but with some effort and some money and thought it could be a good option in the future for many wishing to see the area. I am all for families having a second home but if it is to be let out to the public to help with costs, there has to be a very good basic standard of accommodation which may be above what the owners family are happy to accept for themselves.

    Fab cottage, beautifully decorated and furnished, in a good location. Only downside was about 2 miles to the nearest shop...however that’s not enough to put us off returning!! Already looking at when we can return.

    The cottage was in a really good location to Chatsworth, Bakewell and Matlock. Lots of walks can be done from the cottage. The Outlet Village and local pub are just a 5 minute stroll away. The parking space at the back of the house was handy but a bit tight. The cottage was lovely and warm and we could control the heating without any restrictions. The only downfall was the cleanliness mainly in the kitchen and bedroom. Skirting boards, lampshades, back of the bed all very dusty. I’m sure after a really good deep clean this can be cured as otherwise a cosy cottage.

    We were so sorry to have had the experience we had at Dove Cottage. So, in a nutshell... 1. the house was in darkness when we arrived and bitterly cold as the heating was off and had been for some time for it to be so cold. 2. the heating broke down whilst we were there and we had to wait in for a day to let plumbers in to repair it. 3. the 2nd bedroom was arrange so that you couldn't get in through the door without a huge squeeze so we rearranged the furniture so that it was safer to get in and out of 4. the shower unit had not been cleaned for yonks. The water wouldn't drain and so my husband cleaned out the drain which was full of hair... it worked after that. 5. the bedroom lights we covered in cob webs. 6. the lounge was the saving grace of the little house. It was lovely and cosy. We went for a complete break after some family losses and were bitterly disappointed. We did contact the owner (the local contact wasn't available) and although she organised the plumber, she hasn't been heard of since we asked her for some compensation. A very disappointing experience.

    It was a lovely break. The cottage was excellent and the countryside was beautiful. We could not have asked for more. We will definitely be booking again.
