    "This is our second visit to S16446 and it won't be the last. The welcome pack is amazing the best we have ever had. The weather was really cold when we were there so coming back to a lovely warm cottage and lighting the wood burner was a treat. We enjoyed feeding the ducks by the river near the cottage and there were lots of nice walks straight from the door."
    Peter ‐ 16 Nov 2018
    "Lovely cottage and would definitely go again - the only downside was the almost total lack of storage space in bedrooms 2 and 3. No wardrobes - just one coat stand and tiny thin draw in bedside cabinets. If that could be rectified then would certainly score a 10."
    Chantel ‐ 7 Nov 2018
    "The cottage was beautiful and very well equipped for a self catering stay. The owners were very thoughtful with the items provided as a welcome pack plus special touches like fresh flowers, bottle of prosecco and themed crackers. The only thing which would have made the stay better would be if there abit more storage space as we had to keep things in our cases as there was only one wardrobe to unpack into. Don't let that put you off though as the attention to detail in the cottage massively outweighed this slight improvement"
    Gordon ‐ 20 Oct 2018
    "Great wee cottage, everything you need, finished to a high standard and very welcoming. Owners attention to detail is superb, I thought the parking may be an issue but it honestly wasn’t as the residents parking is 50 metres away and you can load/unload right outside. Cottage is quirky and you soon get used to its idiosyncrasies ie windows very low and it adds to the character. Outstanding."
    Tina ‐ 16 Oct 2018
    "Absolutely superb cottage, finished to a VERY high spec and very highly recommended. Wonderful communication with the lovely owners throughout.Spotlessly clean, well stocked with food and drink 😊Superb for walking along the River Dive etc - local pub is approx 1 mile away.I look forward to my next visit - it really is a fantastic base to explore Dovedale 👍🏻I have stayed in many cottages and this has been outstanding, in my opinion."

    "A really lovely place to stay with a warm welcome and no expense spared to make this a home from home and more!"
    Susan ‐ 7 Sep 2018
    "Absolutely fantastic place to stay.Beautifully renovated cottage with everything you could possibly need and more besides. Immaculate inside and out. A great base to explore the peak district.

    "Fabulous cottage in the most gorgeous location - We are looking forward to returning !"
    Sharlene ‐ 12 Aug 2018
    "We had a wonderful stay at S16446, we had everything we could need and the welcome treats on arrival were lovely! Hubby and I especially enjoyed the prosseco one evening out on the deck looking out onto the river with all the lovely ducks.Would definitely recommend and will be returning soon."
    HEATHER ‐ 21 Jun 2018
    "S16446 is a high spec and beautiful home from home. It is far better equipped than most holiday cottages and very deserving of its glowing feedback."
    Ian ‐ 11 Jun 2018
    "Idyllic location, great walks and a fantastic pub just up the road.The cottage was perfect with very comfortable beds in particular."
    Julie ‐ 5 Jun 2018
    "What a lovely spot, and a beautiful, clean, well equipped cottage. The cottage is a perfect size for a family, and being just opposite the river, we got to see the ducklings every day, which the kids loved. Great base for seeing Derbyshire - only a stone's throw from the Tissington and Monsal Trails. Lots of hikers pass through the village, as it's on a popular route, but it was never noisy or too busy to enjoy the surroundings. Thoroughly recommend the little shop over the way for an ice cream. Lovely people, too. The kids were already asking when we could visit this spot again :)"
    Mark ‐ 30 May 2018
    "The cottage is beautifully appointed with a great deal of thought and consideration having been put into the furniture, furnishings, decoration and equipment. S16446 was spotlessly clean and presented as though we were first people to have stayed there since it was decorated / refurbished.Nice touches such as flowers, chocolates, cake, orange juice, bubbly etc. all add to the pleasurable experience and shows that owners are not cost cutting but making the experience as enjoyable as possible. The outside decked seating area behind and above the property has been very cleverly completed, providing a private, peaceful and relaxing area. This was very welcomed as on weekends and bank holidays when the weather is good, the cottage and front garden will attract attention from visitors. Night time is wonderfully quiet and peaceful and no street lamps which is nice."
