Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet cottage to use as a base for exploring the Peak District. This was the perfect home- we were welcomed with a delightful basket of food, the local pub served real ales and had friendly owners with a nice fire, and it was very easy to drive to nearby sites. There is a beautiful garden out front and the backyard abuts a peaceful pasture. The owner was very easy to communicate with and answered all of our questions promptly. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a place in this area.

A great base to explore the Peak District from.

Lathkill Cottage is just lovely. So homely and cosy. Didn't want for anything. Just stayed over for a long weekend with my mum and we both enjoyed the facilities. The beds were so comfortable and the decor is just charming for the period of the property. The owner Ralph greeted us and showed us round and he was very welcoming as were the neighbours. Really lovely people. The village had an open garden day so we were able to nose around peoples gardens and get to see the village. Bakewell only 3 miles away and Matlock about 12. Both worth a visit. Chatsworth is nearby too and the Monsal trail for a good walk. The welcome basket of bread, eggs, butter, milk and a juicy bottle of red lasted us all weekend (well maybe not the vino), there was a plentiful supply of coffee, tea and sugar too. We bought the rest of our supplies from a butchers in bakewell near the co-op and a few bits from the co-op and cooked at home and enjoyed the homeliness to the max. Dishwasher took care of the dirty pots and pans. Would love to stay again.

Ralph and Hazel made our stay at Lathkill Cottage very special. They were there to welcome us and answer any questions when we arrived the left us to enjoy our stay in their property in a picturesque village in the Peaks.

Comfortable, fully equipped with character and charm. We were able to sit in the garden in the evenings and enjoy stunning views. Strongly recommend and will definitely be back!

Thank you!

A perfect find

  • 5 of 5

The previous review said it all really - we cannot recommend this property enough - it is in the most beautiful location with views to die for. It was almost as if the lady of the house had just nipped out and left a warm and cosy cottage for us to stay in. It has everything you could possibly need and the welcome basket was delicious and such a nice touch. Chatsworth House is so worth a visit - the grounds are stunning - I would recommend booking online before you go. There are numerous villages to explore in the area and of course many footpaths to follow. The local village pub serves hearty lunchtime food and there are many other pubs quite near to explore. All in all a most wonderful stay made perfect by Ralph and Hazel who most certainly go the extra mile in order for their guests to have the most enjoyable holiday.

Owner's Response: Where do we start to tell the story of our meeting with Trevor and Heather and their stay at our cottage ? We immediately felt at ease as if we had known each other for years and over the next few days kept in contact by text and phone. They left the cottage spotless and Put fantastic comments in our guest book . We have no hesitation in recommending them to who ever is fortunate to have them as their guests. Ralph and Hazel Kirk owners.

I loved my stay at Lathkill cottage - I really felt at home there, and will definitely be returning whenever I can. The owners are most amiable, and their hospitality seems to be above and beyond what one would ordinarily expect - the welcome basket being a particularly nice touch. The village and surrounding areas are stunning, and the late September sun was a real treat. We had some lovely walks up on Stanton Moor, where there are many prehistoric sites of interest to explore - like the nine ladies stone circle. But curling up at the end of the day in this cosy cottage is what really made my holiday. I'd definitely recommend.

Car: recommended

Turn off the A6 Bakewell to Matlock Road onto the B5056 signposted for Ashbourne and Youlgrave. After 2 miles turn left and follow the signs for Ashbourne. After 800 yds turn left again signposted Stanton In Peak. On entering the village, Lathkill Cottage is the 3rd cottage on the left. (If you reach the village pub you have passed the cottage and need to turn around).
