    May Cottage is much bigger than I imagined and every room is cosy and quaint with furnishings that have been chosen with thought and love. There is a little sun room to contemplate from. Excellent value for money as this was not in my opinion an expensive cottage to rent. The location is also a plus. Easy walking distance (5 minutes) into Bakewell which has some lovely shops and a good farmers market on the last Saturday of each month. As previous reviews said, there is no off road parking or parking directly in front of the cottage, but we were able to unload our bags and park on the opposite side of the road either 30 yards up the road or 80-100 yards down the road and left our car there all weekend as we walked everywhere. We had a lovely long walk and every interaction with local people was friendly. The only improvement I'd ask is that the hot water wasn't hot enough for a really steaming hot bath, but I topped it up with half a kettle. I'm sure this could be rectified easily. Thank you to the owners and for the detailed instructions on how to find the cottage. Very friendly and amenable.

    Beautiful cottage, well situated. The log-burning stove a real winner. Our only grumbles were as follows: lamp in entrance hall wasn't working - the bulb was blown, which was a shame as we would have liked to have left it on for when we came back. The wall lights just didn't have the same ambience. No bulb at all in the side table lamp in the master bedroom - we had to hunt in the cupboards for one and luckily found one but really, this sort of thing should be checked when the property is cleaned. Small sliver of wood veneer sticking up at the lip of the bath - nasty shock if you caught it unwittingly - we knew to avoid it after the first time. Overall however we enjoyed our stay.

    We loved this cottage, it’s very cute and just what we were looking for. The kitchen could have been stocked a bit more as we planned to do a lot of cooking over our weekend. Just a short walk into the town, very scenic
