Lovely week with the family

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay in the cottage, everything we needed for family of 7.

The cottage is in a good spot, perfect for lovely walks and scaling the peaks, and a handy pub up the road ( the old dog) with lovely food and The Bluebell a short drive away. Central to visit many other towns Bakewell, Matlock etc

Lovely week had by all, we will return! Thankyou

Simple, clean accommodation, perfect for walking, amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had s lovely time in middle cottage. We could walk straight out from the front door and there are footpaths in every direction. Bakewell, stepping stones, Ashbourne, Buxton and chatsworth are all accessible. Cottage is simple but everything you need is there and it's very clean. We would definitely go back. Thanks jo.

Charmed by this house

  • 5 of 5

We were charmed by this house the minute we walked in! Wooden beams, old solid furniture, plenty seating for all the family.

Kitchen very well equipped, plates, dishes, pans, utensils- every thing you need and then some!!

Beds were all very comfy- master bedroom was fab.

So much space for everyone without being on top of each other!

The children loved all the toys and dvd's that were there!

Easy or difficult walk down into Dovedale depending on choice of path!!

Thank you jo- we had a fab time!! Xx

Lovely well equipped cottage

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and peaceful little village and a lovely old cottage with lots of character. A family group of us stayed with the youngest being 13 months and the oldest 87 and it was perfect. Very well equipped too, and clean.

Middle House Thorpe

  • 5 of 5

We had not visited the Peak District before and found that there where excellent walks in the area around the cottage. The cottage was very well equipped

and we had a very pleasant week - even the weather was good.

We had 2 very good meals at the Okeover Arms.

I would certainly recommend the cottage and I hope to return for another holiday in the future.
