    "Great location, cottage was really cosy and very cleverly and attractively arranged. It was lovely and warm and the kitchen was very well equipped."
    Mr Adam Botherway, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire
    "The location of the property was great for walking, didn't need to use the car much. Two pubs close by which served great food. "
    Miss Holly Bridges, London,
    "A beautiful cottage which was quiet and well-maintained. We had all the facilities we required. The cottage is located so well for lovely walks, exploring the local villages and not far from a range of pubs and shops. The cottage was the perfect size for just the 2 of us. Thank you!"
    Mrs Julie Tucker, Salisbury, Wiltshire
    "The cottage was lovely and in an ideal location for our many walks in The Peak District. Also the pub being just a 2 minute walk away was ideal!"
    Mr Mark Lund, Hungerford, Berkshire
    "It had everything I needed with privacy, quiet, a very convenient parking space, great shower and much of what I wanted from the Peaks on the doorstep; you cant have the whole of the Peak District on the doorstep!"
    Mr Russell George, Tamworth, Staffordshire
    "A clean, cosy little place, ideal base for access to the countryside."
    Mr Graham Jenkins, Cardiff, Caerdydd
    "A very nice, cosy property for two people in an excellent area for walking and sightseeing. Some very good pubs in the vicinity also. "
    Mrs Sheila Mottram, rugeley, Staffordshire
    "Very quiet, well designed for a couple and their luggage "
    Mrs Sheila Reid, Liverpool, Merseyside
    "A rural location and close to footpaths, yet near a pub and an easy drive to Ashbourne."
    Ms Sarah Marnier, Sleaford, Lincolnshire
    "The cottage was clean and well set out, very bijoux. It was lovely and welcoming, the milk was ready for the important cuppa after the journey there and the welcome instructions were great. Close enough to Ashbourne for easy food shopping and the Tissington trail is virtually on the doorstop."
    Mr Daniel Sandham, London,
    "Fantastic accommodation. The milk, biscuits and wine were a lovely, welcoming touch. Brilliant location. "
    Mr David Mosdell, Basingstoke, Hampshire
    "I thought that the Dig Barn was finished to a good standard. The kitchen was well equipped. I enjoyed my stay."
    Ms Dawson, Whyteleafe, Surrey
    "The Dig Barn is in a very quiet area and was truly peaceful for a holiday away from a City. Although bijou, the property was totally adequate for a couple who wanted to be out all day but relax in the evening, and the local pub was only a walk away."
    Watson, Sunderland, Tyne and Wear
    "Nice cosy cottage. Good access to local walks. Well satisfied with the whole holiday."
    " The cottage was in a great location, right on some public footpaths, and the owner had left maps in the cottage making it really easy to get out and go exploring! Although the cottage is part of the same building as the owner's house, it has its own entrance and is completely separate. Inside it was beautifully decorated, and although small, this just added to the charm of it. The kitchen was fully stocked with cutlery, crockery and the owner had even left a pint of milk and bottle of wine to welcome us - you can't ask more than that! The only thing missing from the kitchen was there was no cooking oil, which was a bit disappointing but only a minor inconvenience. The bedroom is on a mezzanine floor, it's a bit of a squeeze to get round the bed and the bed is very low down so it's only really suitable for those who are able-bodied. Very comfortable bed though. This is the perfect place to stay for a couple wanting a beautiful getaway in a lovely location. "
    Mrs Audley, Hailsham, East Sussex
    "It was a sweet little barn, nice and cosy and very warm with a lovely bed. "
    Dr Price, Bilston, West Midlands
    "The cottage was in a great location, right on some public footpaths, and the owner had left maps in the cottage making it really easy to get out and go exploring! Also the cottage was decorated beautifully."
