    The cottage was very well presented with everything needed to make for a comfortable stay. The welcome pack for us and our dog was very nice and the cottage was meticulously clean. The only problem was the heavy lorries going through the village and with the narrow pavements would not be recommended for families with young children. Unfortunately the nearest pub was not doing meals whilst we were staying and the second one only had a very limited menu. There are some very good take aways close by. The Peak Railway at Darley Dale is well worth a visit.

    A lovely cottage, however if you want to lay in, in the mornings any day of the week forget it your on a main through road, which is very busy with a non existent footpath outside the property. Not much to see or do in the village apart from a couple of pubs and no WiFi. Which in some ways was a plus but as there wasn't many TV channels and nothing in the immediate area to do apart from drinking or walking it got a bit boring after a week. Also the main outside photo of the rear of the house is deceptive as there is no lawn that's next doors garden!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Not quite sure what was expected in the middle of the Peak District, a lot of villages don’t even have a pub. We provide a full complement of TV channels on Freesat, as even with a TV booster, Freeview channels are limited in our area. Free wifi is also available in one of the pubs.
