    Great cottage, very cosy and well appointed. No washing machine which wasn't great with the poor weather but we would go again.

    Cosy house, although so cold on the first day that we had to sit all afternoon and evening in our coats and slept with clothes on! However, from then on much better - perhaps the owners could arrange heating to be put on in advance of arrivals. Also no welcome information/communication available, but eventually found. Location great and well equipped property.

    Cottage was very nice. Just what we needed in a lovely village. Fairly central for visits to Matlock, Buxton, Bakewell and Chatsworth Xmas market. The only thing I would say to the owners is to do something with the decking. I put one foot on it and slipped straight over.
