    A very well designed conversion in a small building. Everything required was available or obtainable on request. A lovely little village with very friendly residents. Easy road access to all the places of interest. We would certainly stay here again if visiting this area.

    Great place in a scenic village. Takes you back in time. Only big problem is no mobile network and no wifi in the property. Owner/ Peter is very friendly and helpful. Good for just two people. Someone looking for quiet break, excellent location.

    A small, comfortable, well-equiped cottage in a very quiet location (no wifi or phone signal). The host Peter is friendly and helpful and can advise on walks, pubs etc. The local pub is welcoming with good value food. Ashbourne, Leek and Bakewell are less than a half hour drive away and the Manifold valley is only a few miles from the cottage.
