Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you, Anya, for a lovely stay at Toodles Cottage. We had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed every detail of the house, including the woodburner and the fully equipped kitchen. Communication with Anya was swift, warm and friendly. We hope to come back and enjoy the view from the garden over the rolling hills, reading books from the most amazing Scarthin bookshop.

Beautiful place, with amazing garden.

  • 5 of 5

The place was lovely, and Anya was very friendly and easy to communicate with via text. There were slippers for all of us and some little packets of fudge which was a lovely touch!

Our favourite part was the garden which was truly remarkable, it was very well kept with lots of little solar powered lights and gets lots of sun in the morning; the top tier was a bit of struggle to get to for anyone with knee/hip problems but the view was brilliant and the furniture up there is great.

The only thing we would say would be that the parking is not easy! It is on a busy road that happens to be very steep, often we parked down the hill and walked back up, this was no problem for us but may be difficult for not so confident drivers.

We would love to come and stay here again, so would definitely recommend!

Charming, very clean and cozy.

  • 4 of 5

Property was very inviting but located on a busy road. Fan in upstairs bedroom helped with road noise but another was needed for second bedroom. Also know this isn't customary, but a top sheet would have been helpful because temps were too high for the duvets.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the lovely texts over your stay, i'm so glad you enjoyed your UK visit to the Peak District & hope your flight home was okay. Its a shame you didn't mention the fan in the immense heatwave there, as the portable Aircon that was there is censored, so if positioned on the landing would have controlled the 'environment' to both rooms with the double glazing systems shut. There are also spare sheets left in each rooms bottom drawers - which were mentioned within the information provided and also that the duvets are 'All Season'-split togs duvets, where they can be divided to personal taste.

A delightful and quirky cottage, loved it.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage provided everything we needed. It was immaculately set up ready for our arrival and is beautifully decorated. To update this period cottage, so that it is cosy and comfortable would have been a big job, but the owners have done a marvellous job. The wood burning stove was wonderful, the lounge and beds very comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything required.

The customer service was second to none, and local amenities are good. We hope to stay again in the future.

Cosy relaxing cottage for a short break

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is clean, modern and well furnished. The kitchen and bathroom was full of everything we needed for a weekend stay, the living room was cosy and jammed with lots of entertainment from a fully stocked and up to date dvd library, poker table set and lots of information on the local area. The cottage is a short walk from village shops and a great coffee shop with tasty cakes. We especially liked the attention to detail from the hosts, who had made checkin and checkout as easy as possible and stayed in touch from beginning to end to make sure we had a great stay at Toodles.
