    Accommodation in desperate need of improvement and a good clean. Owners are selling so clearly are disinterested. Outdoor space seriously limited due to Paddock area being completely overgrown and inaccessible. Overall a big disappointment.

    Fantastic property, help on hand from owner when needed. Will definitely stay again

    Not enough bedding Fire very problematic despite some visitors having these at home so skilled users Showers constantly ran cold If duel users Pictures did not represent reality of room sizes and darkness if rooms Additional tall free standing lights would have helped Strong overwhelming smell of burning oil in back garden when boiler running so unusable at times Only used hottie once as impossible to open and close lid Random people arrived unannounced everyday to test pool and unhelpful when we raised issues

    Fantastic cottage very beautiful, lovely settings. Couple of leaking windows in the bad weather while we was there but that’s to be expected of an old cottage (and the weather was horrendous!) would definitely stay there again.

    We booked the school house for my sister in law to be hen weekend. There were 9 of us. The house was perfect. My sister in law was over the moon. Everyone had there own space. Living Room was perfect for our evenings. You are only 30seconds from the main road but you wouldn't know at all, it was so peaceful. Hot tub was great and the 8 of us who wanted to go in fitted altogether with no issue (I would say it was quite difficult to get out of the hot tub as I have short legs, could maybe do with some kind of step or something). We went to Tissington and Ashbourne, both of which very nice and pretty places. We went for a meal in Leek where a taxi costs £6 (very reasonable). The idea of the weekend was for us all to chill out and relax which is exactly what we did. Each of us will be going back with our respective families/ friends. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

    A lovely charming house with a lot of character though there are issues that could easily be rectified to the benefit of guests. Booked this as looked ideal for family time about 9 - 10 months in advance, then reading further reviews nearer to our stay there were several reviews regarding the housekeeping, leaking shower, dishwasher not effective. I contacted Hoseasons with my concerns for them to come back that everything was in working order. Disappointed with our stay that these issues still remained, including old white / greying towels and garden gate broken. With only a short stay I felt it would be a waste of time to contact the owner as evident these weren't going to be resolved. Just got stuck in with plenty of washing up and cleaning up the water that came through the shower into the dining room. I contacted Hoseasons on our return, the owner disputes any of the issues as nothing wrong! Would I stay there again, no and its such a shame as the house is lovely but needs some tlc. I would even thing twice about booking through Hoseasons as with so many concerning reviews this property should of been checked.

    A good house for a large party not expecting any frills.

    Had a brilliant weekend celebrating my birthday. Definitely recommend staying here. Only things I would say to be aware of are: 1) The hot tub overlooks the road and neighbors (so give local walkers a little wave!) 2) Hot tub wasn't warm until day 2 (but this was because it had been cleaned I think) 3) The main shower upstairs will leak into the dining room - no matter how careful you are (but a quick mop will sort it right out) 4) Dishwasher doesn't really seem to get much clean - not really worth using. Nothing above is really different or new to other reviews so shouldn't be much of a surprise :) And in the grand scheme of things only minor. Still had a great time.

    Beautiful cottage. Location lovely if you have a car. Could have used a few more tea towels. Hosts available for any problems and sorted asap.

    This cottage is a lovely stone brick house in keeping with the rest of the village. A few things to point out. There was no hand soap in any of the toilets and no toliet cleaner we had to go and buy some. The cottage had insufficient towels also, I was in a double room and was only provided 2 shower towels and no hand towels to dry hands or put down on on the floor for when stepping out of the shower. I have rented many houses over the past few years and can always say I have recieved a welcome pack. This cottage had no welcome pack so don't expect any complimentary tea coffe sugar buscuits loaf of bread or pint of milk- there was nothing. One of the ovens does not work, this is stated in reviews from may/june time and has still not been fixed 6 months later. Its the oven on the left hand side. The water from the shower in the maim bathroom leaks through a hole where the seal has not been put on in the correct position. The owner will try to tell you that there is no leak. However I have emailed her photographs of the gap to prove its that and also taken sam the maintenance man up there to show him the leak. The main stairs have no light at the bottom and are very low half way down and need a sign saying mind your head. Many of our party banged there head. One of the bedrooms had a huge damp patch which dripped onto a bed below. Lastly one of our party fell down the wooden stairs from top to bottom and was unconcious for 5 minutes and cut her head open. We had to call an ambulance. The stairs need a sign stating 'very steep' or words to thst effect. They need carpeting to ensure they are not so slippery. They are wooden, very steep and painted in gloss - an accident waiting to happen and it did. I definately wouldn't rent this if you have kids... on a positive note the house was spacoius and in a lovely setting. It needs some updating so a lick of paint here and there and door knobs putting on etc. However the other health and safety issues i have raised need addressing as soon as possible. I have written my concerns to the owner regarding all the above and asked her to contact me back when they have been addressed. I am currently awaiting a response. Would I rent this property again. NO WAY.
