    "What a beautiful house!! We were so impressed with the cleanliness, presentation and layout of the house, that we will be booking again for next year, as it's the perfect home from home!Thank you for having us!"

    "It is very difficult to think of anything to fault with this property. Furnishings are of a high standard and impeccably clean.Four young men aged between 22 & 27 in the party found plenty to occupy them with pool table, table tennis, gym, playing cards and Xbox provided.The WiFi was excellent however mobile coverage was non exsistent which was a real blessing!"

    "The Granary is a lovely place to spend time with friends and family. The location is stunning and every home comfort is there to make your stay memorable."

    "Our party of eight, all in our seventies (five siblings) and from Wiltshire, Dorset Middlesbrough and Cambridge, spent a lovely four days in the Granary. The facilities and equipment were excellent but the twin bedroom was not really suitable for two people in their seventies - probably intended for children. Also perhaps another toilet and basin would have added to the comfort."

    "Amazing for a 3 generation week. Couldn’t have been better!"

    "Excellent cottage. Fabulous facilities. Gym really well equiped. Great for older teenagers to let off steam"
    Victoria ‐ 30 Jun 2018
    "We had a fantastic time at The Granary, shared a long weekend with family at this idilic peaceful location, great facilities, lovely view, in a rural setting. James the owner came to welcome us and we even got fresh flowers, a bottle a prosecco and complementary tea coffee and biscuits. My partner and I struggled to fine pans small enough for just 2 for the remainder of our stay once everyone left. We, including our two dogs loves the walks nearby especially dove dale. The Duncombe arms is defiantly worth a visit, steak night on a Thursday."
    Cheryl ‐ 10 Jun 2018
    "Excellent pet friendly cottage with almost every amenity. Would highly recommend. Beautiful view from the cottage."
    Joshua ‐ 24 May 2018
    "Great stay. House keep very clean and was a great birthday weekend for my father in law. Great local pub and just a short drive to Ashbourne. Would love to stay here again."
    Nicholas ‐ 8 May 2018
    "Great cottage and facilities. We really enjoyed our stay"
    Susan ‐ 29 Apr 2018
    "We have had a lovely time at The Granary and wouldn't hesitate to stay again, in fact we hope to!"
    julie ‐ 7 Apr 2018
    "This property is amazing. Top of the range appliances in the kitchen and so well kitted out with crockery, cutlery, pots and pans. There is an ironing board, iron and Hoover. The bedrooms are even bigger in reality than they appear on the website and the second kitchen was ideal for my daughter to use to prep bottles etc for her baby. The gym was well equipt too so enjoyed a couple of sessions in it.The games room exceeded expectations, pool/table tennis table, X box, board games and small library. The utility room housed a dryer and was a great place for the dogs to dry off after their walks. Then it's a fridge freezer in the kitchen and further fridges in the second kitchen and utility room.I would highly recommend this property, I don't think anyone could find anything to be disappointed about."

    "Other reviews were really good and the granary didn't disappoint us at all.Exactly the family friendly cottage we needed to celebrate a 60th birthday get together. Great standard, good quality fittings, lots of space, everything provided.The log burner was cosy, the owners very friendly and helpful, even the sun shone!James recommended a meal at the Duncombe Arms in the village but to make sure we booked - which we did - and the meal was fantastic - superb food and wine.Would certainly recommend to anyone."

    "Great place, facilities and location."
    Lynne ‐ 11 Feb 2018
    "Fabulous spacious cottage in beautiful countryside. Very well appointed with high end equipment. Pictures on the website don't do it justice. Great for our family get together celebrating three birthdays - ages 5 to 70. Three couples, two children and two dogs. Lovely walks from the door (even in the rain) Boot room/utility much appreciated as was the pool/table tennis table. Great Sunday lunch in the local pub. Would thoroughly recommend this cottage"
