    Mr Ewing ‐ 1 Sep 2018
    "Dog Friendly with a nice enclosed garden .Nice base for exploring the area with scenic views. Visit from Sue the host was very informative, most helpful ."
    Ms Bulmer ‐ 1 Aug 2018
    "Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a few days away. The countryside was beautiful not used to seeing so much scenery as from the city. We visited Alton towers which was only a 10 minute drive away from the cottage, very convenient location. The owners were very friendly and welcoming, came to see how our stay was which I thought was nice. Overall, very good experience, hopefully be back again soon :)"

    "We had a wonderful few days and the weather was amazing too."
    Miss Martin ‐ 1 May 2018
    "The setting was beautiful and the cottage was perfect. It has a really rustic feel yet very modern at the same time. The location is calm and 'secluded' but a short drive to everywhere. We did a number of walks and in Sunday went to the Ramblers retreat for brunch (10mins away) and it was idillic. The owner was lovely and even provided tables and chair for us to eat outside in the evening sun. It was just wonderful. Highly recommended."
    Mrs Horn ‐ 1 May 2018

    Mr Anthony Peach, King's Lynn, Norfolk
    "The owners were very friendly and welcoming. The rural location was central to local attractions and facilities within an 8 mile radius. The property was very dog friendly, as was the whole area."
    Mr Kim Johnson, Harwich,
    "A charming cottage, only recently converted. It is in a quiet rural setting that is ideal for touring the Peak District National Park. There are some lovely walks in the local area. The owners live close by and made us feel very welcome. The cottage is as described, well appointed and kitted out to a high standard. Worth every penny!"
