    "We enjoyed a great stay here, and would certainly stay here again. It is on the edge of the high peak area with so much to see and explore all within 30 miles. The cottage owner Chris is a most wonderful, friendly and attentive host - nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Cottage was well equipped for our needs and was clean and comfortable. Permission to have a comforting coal fire in the evenings was a blessing as September nights had that chilly edge, and the cottage is situated adjacent to water. The bonus of the patio overlooking the canal and tow-path meant breakfast and enjoyable end of day drinks sitting there waving and exchanging pleasantries with all who passed, on foot or boat. Important note is that the ducks on the canal are spoilt rotten so please ensure you have enough stale bread to hand or they will quack the living daylights out of you! The good weather did help. The cottage is in a lovely quiet-ish location - but only minutes walk from the main A6 and good pub-(Soldier Dick, great food) and shops etc. Tesco 5mins drive or 20 minute walk along the tow path for the energetic ones. Great dog walking from the cottage but of course the moors can really stretch them - our 2 shepherds were always tired at the end of the day. An observation - which in no way constitutes a complaint - is that with the kitchen and toilet upstairs then anyone with a disability for stairs may need to look elsewhere. Just loved it and would return should we ever holiday in that area again."

    "We stayed for four nights at Coal Miner's Cottage. We were delighted with the cosy feel of the cottage and beautiful views. The cottage is beautifully furnished, with every home comfort thought of. Beautiful kitchen, lovely shower/ bathroom and very comfortable lounge. Double bedroom was super, again with splendid views. The second bedroom has a double bottom bunk with single over, this was used by our 'young adult' sons who found it perfectly adequate, but we felt a more senior couple may have found it a little claustrophobic. Endless supply of towels etc and hot water fabulous! Outside was a lovely quaint walled patio area, which we couldn't make full use of during our stay.Fabulous scenic walks on the doorstep and in New Mills is the Millennium Walkway and Torrs Riverside Park and Walk - stunning and well worth a visit. We made good use of the rail network into Manchester (visiting son at University) It is only a 12-15 minute walk from the cottage, although uphill on the return journey! And about a 30 minute train journey into the city. Elsewhere we visited Castleton, Bakewell and Buxton, all accessible by car.We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would well recommend Coal Miner's Cottage. Our only slightly negative view was the parking....It is an extremely steep climb up to the cottage and a tricky turn at the top, depending on the car size. A couple of times we opted to leave the car at the bottom of the hill in street parking ( short climb only to the cottage)."

    "Ok, there are many plus points to recommend this property, not least its location by a canal and plenty of good walks nearby and from the property along the canal. The National Trust's Lyme Park is very close with its magnificent house and stunning estate grounds for walks.The cottage is dog friendly and the small garden safe. The rooms were warm, there was hot water on demand and a cosy coal fire for guests use.However, the cottage for us had its disappointments, namely a small, awkward cramped bathroom/toilet with bath/shower and an overpowering musty, old smell in the upstairs bedroom. Also the dining table had old food debris crumbs in the flap joints which could pose a health hazard.Overall, in our personal view, unco-ordinated decor and accessories spoil the ambience of the property. The house has a short, steep staircase with a bannister rail leading to an upstairs kitchen diner which was well-equipped. It seems from the visitors book and the online reviews that many people return to the cottage and it satisfies their needs. There are also some other comments."

    "This cottage is in a brilliant location overlooking the canal. Both us and the dogs loved sitting in the big window in the kitchen with a cup of tea watching the barges, ducks, people and dogs go past! There are a couple of friendly pubs within a couple of hundred yards and quite a few dog-friendly pubs nearby. This is a great part of the peak district to explore with the Goyt valley close by (lovely walks around the reservoirs there) and also Lyme Park for those who enjoy National Trust properties (we did a nice walk around the estate). The cottage was warm (something I find important as I tend to feel the cold!) and cosy and the garden was properly enclosed. It was just right for us and the dogs - all in all a great holiday! March 2012. "

    "A wonderful unique little cottage. Having the dogs we found the enclosed garden a godsend as we could let them out to do their business safe in the knowledge they wouldn't run off. The cottage had everything you could need and our hosts were fantastic, even down to a fire waiting for us when we got there and buscuits and tea/coffee at the ready. Folders with helpful notes on places to visit and eat including dog friendliness were all much appreciated. We had been warned about the steep stairs but these did not prove any problem to us. And if you have an old or large dog there is no need to go upstairs if you keep the food and water by the patio door. All in all a fantastic base for walking or sightseeing."
