Great stay in a lovely bungalow with lots of space

  • 5 of 5

We chose this bungalow as we wanted to be close to Alton Towers (about 15 min drive away) When we arrived we were welcomed with milk, bread and banana cake which was a nice surprise and delicious. The bungalow has everything you need and is really spacious so plenty of room for our group of 4 adults and 2 children. The views around the bungalow are lovely and if the weather was better we would have definitely explored the area more. We have already decided we will be coming back next year but for a longer stay as 2 nights wasn't long enough.

Beautiful surroundings, quiet & tranquil with lots to do and see. Perfectly located within walking distance of several great attractions. Great spacious property fully fitted with all appliances. In case of bad weather there were lots of books and games provided. Would highly recommend. Felt like a home away from home just with a better view.

Lovely cottage. Better than the photo's show

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house, set in an area of outstanding beauty. It has lots of space and is well equipped. The house has new windows and a new bi-fold door instead of the patio door shown in the picture. Bringing the outdoors into the house. A lovely enclosed garden. The kitchen was well equipped, and it was nice to have a dishwasher. A bigger fridge would be nice especially when stocking up. The closest shops are in Ashbourne, so it's nice to shop for a few days. This is a large cottage and not cramped. It is next to Dovedale House which is let to large groups at times. The garden is not overlooked as it is surrounded by a large hedge. It might be an idea to provide a visitors book. For example to advise when the bins are to be emptied. Local doctors, hospital etc, in case it's needed. Nick and Amy were really welcoming. All in all a lovely stay. Good value for money in a beautiful area. Will definitely be back.
