Cottage Review:  

Jim & Jackie visiting from Somerset.The cottage was just as described on the website. Fresh flowers & a welcome pack of goodies was most appreciated.Having such a comfortable & well maintained cottage made our first visit to the Peak District even better.The village was delightful & the locals were very friendly.A big thumbs up for the Red Lion pub which is situated just across the village green ( no need to drive)great food & very welcoming.We will be returning to this superb cottage & recommending to all of our friends.

Cottage Review:  

This beautiful, original and exceptionally well looked after cottage is a real joy to find. The village setting is perfect for a local holiday and gives you the chance to leave the car for a week. The eye for detail and comfort was really amazing and the owners have included so many extras. We personally loved the range of information on local walks (with helpful comments added from other guests), filter coffee and cooking condiments, cozy decorating, warm Aga 24 hrs a day, really comfortable bed in a romantic bedroom, wonderful deep bath and endless hot water (great for aching legs!), fresh flowers and plants provided in the cottage and not forgetting the goodies in the welcome hamper. A really thoughtful touch. We really can't recommend it enough. There are also two particularly good pubs serving real ales and good food, (one right opposite the cottage too). The locals were very friendly wherever we went, as were the owners Gill and Simon who popped in to say hello.

if you are looking for a genuine, english country cottage with many extras and a touch of luxury - book this one!

Cottage Review:  

This is a delightful and well equipped cottage. It is clear that the decoration, equipment and extras are provided from a love of the property, not as a purely commercial perspective. You could live here from day one, not just stay a week. The village is charming and if you enjoy walking, there is no better base. We have been twice - once in the summer, and now in February. It was nice to come back and see the village outside of the tourist season. Quieter but just as friendly. We were worried that most places would be closed but, apart from the stately homes, all the pubs, tea houses and other delights were open serving excellent food and drink. We will be back!

Make up of party:  3 adults - parents and 20 something daughter. The cottage is probably best designed for adults rather than young children

Cottage Review:  

Great location in the middle of Litton (very good pub across the green and a general store a few steps down the road) . Lovely comfortable cottage with absolutely everything provided (and of a very high quality). Owners very friendly and welcoming. Nice touches such as the welcome basket, filled with local goodies.

Cottage Review: How wonderful to discover the stunning Derbyshire Dales, made even more special by our stay in such a well equipped and comfortable cottage. We walked every day, always amazed at how much there was to discover. We ate well every night and the local people are very friendly. Thank you Jill and Simon for making our stay so special. We hope to be back.

Cottage Review: We came over to see family and attend a wedding which was brilliant, but the icing on the cake was this lovely cottage to stay in. Very homely and cosy- everything we needed plus the snow. Magical!

Cottage Review: A lovely personal cottage and warm welcome from Jill and Simon. Beautiful touches like fresh flowers, welcome pack and added extras like local information, walks etc. Red Lion pub is great for beer and food - warm welcome too. Vanilla Kitchen in Tideswell for coffee and cakes is recommended and Arthur's walks. . Thank you- we hope to come back again.

Cottage Review: To Jill and Simmon a big thank you for making everything just right. The only disappointment is that we couldn't stay forever.

Guest's Initials: PT Date of visit: 31/03/2010
Cottage Review: An absolutely top notch cottage in all respects. We have had a simply wonderful stay. Thank you so much!
This is probably the best cottage we have stayed in. Thank you for your excellent welcome, the "starter pack" and arranging the champagne. We have had a marvellous few days.

Cottage Review: Dear Jill and Simon

Andrew and I so enjoyed your cottage, every detail had been so carefully thought of and the cottage is very lovingly looked after. The decor and the well planned lighting really suit the cottage. We found everything we needed plus more, i. e. ground coffee, tea, olive oil etc, so many details on the area's attractions and walks that it would have taken a whole week to read them - I just wish we had had a week and not just three nights, oh, and of course the Bakewell tart, fresh bread and milk. It is the most well equipped self catering accommodation I have ever stayed in, and it was lovely and warm in cold November. Thank you so much.

You were right Jill, about Bakewell being busy on market day - after discovering the only parking left was about half a mile away we gave up and drove to Baslow and had a lovely sunny circular walk through the grounds of Chatsworth instead, and lunch in Baslow before my journey up to the Lake District for the next leg of my holiday!

It was lovely to meet you both and if we are staying in the Peak District again we would certainly book again. We also had a very good meal in the pub opposite and the firework display in Tideswell was one of the best I have seen, amazing for a primary school.

Best wishes, LH
