A lovely stone cottage adjacent to a canal with a small first floor terrace overlooking the water.

This 1840s cottage, adjoining the owners property, overlooks the towpath of the Peak Forest canal, close to the marina, and with an outlook to the High Peak Moors. There’s a patio and lawn, and the first floor kitchen door opens to a small terrace overlooking the water. A good value holiday base for the Peak Park, with Buxton and Castleton an easy drive, and for the museums and nightlife of Manchester. There is a supermarket, 1 mile away, which can be reached by a walk along the canal towpath, or 5 minutes by car. Horse riding and golf can be found nearby. Fish and chip shop (serving both lunches and dinners from Wed - Sat) 200 yards. Supermarket 1 mile, pub serving food 400 yards.

    Ok, there are many plus points to recommend this property, not least its location by a canal and plenty of good walks nearby and from the property along the canal. The National Trust's Lyme Park is very close with its magnificent house and stunning estate grounds for walks. The cottage is dog friendly and the small garden safe. The rooms were warm, there was hot water on demand and a cosy coal fire for guests use. However, the cottage for us had its disappointments, namely a small, awkward cramped bathroom/toilet with bath/shower and an overpowering musty, old smell in the upstairs bedroom. Also the dining table had old food debris crumbs in the flap joints which could pose a health hazard. Overall, in our personal view, unco-ordinated decor and accessories spoil the ambience of the property. The house has a short, steep staircase with a bannister rail leading to an upstairs kitchen diner which was well-equipped. It seems from the visitors book and the online reviews that many people return to the cottage and it satisfies their needs. There are also some other comments.

    Response on behalf of the owner:- Thank you for your comments and we are very sorry to hear of your disappointment. The property description of the bathroom is accurate, and we’re sorry you personally felt it was cramped. This is the first time anyone has made a comment regarding the bathroom. We will ensure the dining table is thoroughly cleaned and will investigate and deal with the issue you referred to in the upstairs bedroom. Concerning your comments regarding the decor, I can assure you the photos of the property on the website are recent and accurately reflect the decoration and accessories. I’m sorry in this case that this wasn’t to your personal taste. I apologise that on this occasion our property didn’t meet your personal expectations. And as you have said, there are many positive reviews of the property both in the visitors book, and also online, where many visitors have provided us with good reviews and in some instances scores of 10. Thank you also for mentioning that many people return to the cottage. In fact currently for 2018 I am both pleased and proud to confirm that we already have two contented parties who are returning to the cottage.

    Lovely comfortable cottage. Fantastic location and lovely walks along the canal either way to dog friendly pubs. Local pub the soldier dick served fabulous food. Made very welcome, thankyou Chris and Mum.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We’re very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and found the cottage comfortable, and we’re glad that you liked the walks along the canal with the dog friendly pubs. I’ll pass on your comments about the food to the owners at The Soldier Dick (I’m glad that they got the new kitchen open whilst you were here), and thank you very much for taking the time to leave your kind comments.

    Lovely setting, good walks along the towpath. Lots of pretty villages nearby. The back garden is secure for dogs. Small terrace at the front ideal for sitting in the evening sun enjoying watching the canal boats going past.

    We had a lovely stay at The White Cottage. The kitchen / diner is a lovely sunny room with beautiful views. The coal fire in the lounge made it very cosy and it was definitely a home from home. The owners were very helpful, would definitely recommend.

    Lovely cottage in a beautiful part of the uk right next to the canal. White cottage had everything we needed and even though it is not a luxury house, we thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day break there.
