T Walker -

Very well maintained property, with all the mod cons needed to make it feel like a proper holiday (no washing up for a whole week!!). The bottle of wine on the table upon arrival was a lovely surprise - especially after 4 hours driving. A very comfortable place to stay, we do not have any negative points to raise. One of the first places where neither of us has mentioned the phrase 'It would be nice if it had....'. We were more than satisfied.

If I was going back to the Peak District I would consider using the cottage again as this has been one of the better cottages that I used for a few years.
