    We were disappointed with and felt that we were misled with the parking description 'private parking for two cars'. We had two cars and struggled to park them both at the property and had to park one car elsewhere. The cleaning was very superficial, very dusty with many cobwebs. The backyard was rather grim, I would not want to sit out and look at the dust bins. I was very reluctant to let my dog sit out as it looks as if it needs a good scrub with some disinfectant. No fuel was left for the fire as stated in property description. The cottage would benefit from a good deep clean and some TLC as it appears to be very neglected.

    We really enjoyed our stay in Dove Cottage. It is warm and cosy and we loved the fire! The location was great for us, walks from the door. A number of pubs/cafes to choose from which are within walking distance. Points to note: there is a very small parking space tucked behind the house. We managed to park our large car but it is tight. Some of the kitchen pans/equipment needs updating.

    Great cottage and very well equipped. Extremely comfortable and well located.

    Lovely cottage very cosy and in a great location for being near Chatsworth.. Great local shops for Christmas shopping and takeaway in Matlock delivered one evening. Parking was a bit tight at the back of property for 2 vehicles. Could have done with a supply of wood for the fire as only one burnt peice available. I understand we had to buy more if needed.

    A cosy and comfortable cottage which is handy for many attractions. There was only two of us and our dog and the cottage was the right size. There are two further beds to extra people and would perhaps be a little cramped for four people. The is an enclosed area at the back to let the dog out if you have one. The “real” fire is welcome during the cold autumn period although the house has very efficient central heating. Kitchen well equipped with a washing machine. Bathroom clean and new. Bedrooms a little dated and perhaps need a bit more TLC. The nearest supermarket for food is a few miles down the road in Darly Dale. However for an old 1800s built cottage it was comfortable.

    Dove Cottage was a really lovely place to stay. The cottage had plenty of room, the kitchen was well equipped, the living room was comfy and the Sky TV (incl Sports) was really good. There was free wifi (slow) but to be honest it's more about being in a good location for the Derbyshire dales and peak district. 5 mins from Chatsworth, 10 mins from Matlock with loads of National Trust and English Heritage sites. Would definitely stay again

    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!

    Great holiday, lovely cottage and location. Great walks an pubs.

    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
