    "Plenty of walks both from the cottage and within a short drive. Very pet friendly. Hosts on site, helpful and welcoming, (though not intrusive) especially when our Cavilier, Biscuit, managed to find a small gap in the otherwise secure garden. Louise and Daren immediately set about repairing it, thank you! Thank you also for the welcome cake, biscuits and milk, very much appreciated."

    "It was so wonderful, I wanted to live there! Both Louise & Darren are lovely hosts, genuinely wanting their guests to feel at home. Cottage has the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in, the bath was luxurious with piping hot water. Kitchen had all necessary essentials, plenty of books & DVD's in the lounge area and a very comfy sofa which looks out onto the private, grassed garden. Biscuits & milk were left as a 'welcome' which was very much appreciated. Although the cottage backs onto the road, there was hardly any traffic and no traffic could be heard at all from inside the cottage. There was under-floor heating too which my dog loved to lie on, preferring it to his doggy bed. The weather wasn't too great with intermittent high winds, sleet and hail, but I was more than cosy and it was lovely sitting on the sofa, looking out into the garden and changes in weather. As someone who thrives amongst nature, peace & quiet, this cottage was perfect. I would highly recommend this cottage and I hope to book again, perhaps in the Autumn. Thank you so much Darren & Louise."

    "It was very nicely furnished and even had a few bits of decoration up for Christmas. The garden was plenty big enough for our Spaniel to zoom in, but we did have to keep him on his long-line as he could jump over the wall. Really quite location and perfect access to the peak district and walking routes. Facilities were great, even had WIFI and an amazon firestick with an various streaming apps already logged in and ready to go. We will be visiting again!"

    "Maybe a shelf under the mirror in the bathroom? Maybe when payment is complete, a breakdown of what's available at the cottage so people don't take duplicate items."

    " The cottage was ready earlier than stated time and the owner Louise contacted us facilitating our early arrival. The cottage fitted our needs perfectly as we had a large dog and the outside space was safe and secure. Underfloor heating was a bonus, especially if you forget your slippers. The bedroom was spacious and well furnished with plenty of storage space and the bed was comfortable. Parking was provided specifically for the cottage and additional off road parking was always accessible. We would definitely recommend and return to this property. "

    " I felt very safe with the covid situation. Good walks locally. Lots of extras provided in kitchen & bathroom. Biscuits & cake also. Louise changed the heating for me twice. Very comfy large bed and small sofa. She cooked me a breakfast & brought it over. Good tv & wi fi reception. Cupboard space in kitchen was limited so I used the dishwasher as one. Toilet was high for my little legs. Dog didn't like the underfloor heating & was tempted to leap the wall after the limited traffic he also found he could push through the chicken wire at bottom of hedge. He is only just a year old, I had taken a horse training lead just incase. If he were older I think he would have been fine. I had a brilliant time & came away feeling completely refreshed. "
