    Lovely getaway place. The entrance is via a 100 yard driveway, and gives it a "hidden hideaway" feel. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Three rooms each sleeping up to two people. Both bathrooms are upstairs which may be a consideration if you have difficulty with stairs. Plenty of parking next to the house.

    It was a nice cottage in a nice setting and was not too far away to walk to the Hayes conference centre in Swanwick and the cottage was very clean.

    Great location for visiting Derbyshire, gorgeous teashop called the Pantry which we would highly recommend in this lovely village.

    Unfortunately we had a few hiccups on our stay at the coach house but the owner was very good in dealing with our problems. I feel the property could do with an update especially the kitchen and bathrooms. Our kids loved the games room thou. There is 4 pubs within walking distance but not one of them serves food which is a real shame but a fantastic Chinese around the corner, local shops and a chemist.

    The cottage was rather “tired” and lacking some basics (and tlc). We were disappointed but it was convenient for the cricket in Derby and Leicester, which was the reason for our visit.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are very sorry and very surprised to hear that you found the Coach House looking ‘tired’ and lacking some ‘basics and TLC’. As we always appreciate feedback from our customers, it would be helpful to know which basics were actually missing, but with respect it would have been even more constructive and helpful if you had mentioned these comments to me when I called round to meet you and to ask if everything was to your satisfaction. You actually led me to believe that you were perfectly happy with everything but that you hadn’t had chance to find the games room. Considering we live right opposite the Coach House and very easily contactable, had we have known you were short of ‘ basics’ - whatever these were- we would most certainly have done something about it.

    We all really enjoyed our stay, the only problem I had was the bedding was really smelly, musty as though it hadn't been dried quickly enough. The games room was a delight, a brilliant idea, the men and boys loved it.
