lovely break in charming cottage
We had a lovely family short break here in October. Great to find a place that is well located, accommodates three children, and has a fireplace. Many thanks to Mark for having us.
A nice 4 day break in a lovely part of the country, great spot walks and trips out.
A nice cottage in a quiet spot at the end of the summer season. A little tired in places and in need of a bit TLC but nevertheless a comfortable stay. The cooker and shower head needs updating still as mentioned by others. Lounge setting is lovely with nice polished floor. The beds are fine and the heating worked well too. The entrance to the garden hedge was overgrown so walking up the path after a wet days trekking with the dog or when walking him at night was difficult. This is a good cottage in a good location for local walks and trips out but with a bit of money spent on it it could be an excellent one.
Many thanks for your comment. All noted and already the shower has been changed, the hedge cut back and a new cooker is coming next week.
Beautiful backdrop with several lovely walks from the door. Clean, homely interior with good beds and shower. Excellent WiFi and no issues with parking.
Would also strongly recommend Piedaniels restaurant in Bakewell. Best meal we have had in a long time at very reasonable price.
LONG WEEKEND RETREAT
We took our teenage daughter and 2 friends and our dog for a long weekend. We dropped the girls at Alton Towers (45 minute drive) and then explored and enjoyed the countryside with the dog. The cottage was lovely. Very comfortable with everything we needed. Plenty of room for all of us, with washing machine and dish washer. I would love to visit again although the drive from Kent (M25 & M1) were the only thing that detracted from our enjoyment. Jaki & Dave
Beautiful location but cottage in need of tlc
This cottage is set in a very picturesque location, but be warned, some of the access roads, although affording spectacular scenery, are single lane and pretty scary in places. There is no parking directly beside the property but there is parking available locally. For anything but very basic groceries, you will have to travel over 7 miles to Buxton. The cottage itself is quite sweet but you will have to watch your head on the door frames if you are tall. Wi-fi in the cottage is good but we had no phone signal. I was disappointed with a number of issues concerning the cleanliness and upkeep of the cottage There was dust so thick in places in the living room that previous holiday makers had actually written a message in it. The shower head was held in place by an elastic band. I don't mind a few cobwebs, but it is not pleasant when they are in the crockery cupboard. More worrying was the fact that the only smoke detector was hanging by wires from the stairwell ceiling; I couldn't reach it to test if it was actually functioning, I feel that, from a health and safety standpoint, it should be easily accessible.
Since your stay I have said “Farewell” to the cleaner responsible and now have a superb cleaner. (See the review written by the people who stayed there last.)
The smoke detector has been replaced and the shower head secured. I was grateful to you for pointing out these deficiencies and you can rest assured they were acted on immediately.
Cottage is in a small hamlet, backdrop scenery is impressive. All facilities are there, house clean and tidy. All went smoothly once the Homeaway website behaved itself. I'd put this on the list for a return visit.
The cottage is situated in the heart of the beautiful Peak District near Buxton. Ashbourne and Bakewell are near by. On one side of the cottage are the spectacular peaks of Chrome Hill and Parkhouse Hill and on the other are heather clad moors of the Staffordshire Moorlands.
The market towns of Leak, Buxton, Ashbourne and Bakewell are all an easy drive, each having their own market days.
Hollinsclough is beside the River Dove and is a walk away from the village of Longnor which boasts four pubs and various eating places.
