Cottage Review:  

Me and my girlfriend got back last night from our weekend break at Willow Cottage. We both had a very good time. We were slightly apprehensive before visiting after reading some negative reviews but we needn't have worried because we personally had no problems at all. The cottage is in a superb setting and is very nicely decorated and furnished inside. On arrival I contacted Lorna (The owner) by phone to ask if we could use the hot tub. Despite her being at work she was still happy to talk me through how to remove the lid and operate it which was great. During our stay we used the tub several times and it was absolutely wonderful. We had booked to stay Saturday and Sunday night but sadly due to work we had to check out early which was a shame. I asked Lorna if it was ok to check out on Sunday Night instead of Monday morning and she was absolutely fine with this. In summary we really enjoyed our time at Willow Cottage and would definitely recommend it to people. Only negative I can think of would be the driveway leading from the road to the cottage. As mentioned in many reviews it is extremely rough but we just went at very low speed and the car was absolutely fine.

Cottage Review:  

Really disappointing stay. I don?t usually leave poor reviews but this experience warrants it. We felt like we paid a lot of money for this cottage for what we were met with. We arrived on the Friday night to find the cottage extremely dirty and damp:

The bed sheets clearly had not been changed and were covered in stains and hair

The rug in the kitchen was soaking wet, the sofas were covered in a layer of damp

The plates and pans in the cupboards were covered in dried on food

The surfaces were greasy and grimy

All towels, tea towels and body towels smelt very bad, of sick in fact. Clearly had not been washed.

Second bedroom - down the side of the bed was sopping wet

This would all be bad enough but when we tried to resolve the issues by texting the owner, Lorna, on the Friday evening, we were met with extremely poor customer service. She came round the next morning in a foul mood and was extremely hostile towards me and my friend. We simply tried to explain the issues to her in a polite and friendly manner but she began shouting saying we simply ?had a different of opinion?. She wouldn?t let us get a word in edgeways and was very intimidating. We did not wish to ruin our weekend so agreed to staying a second night if the property could be cleaned with the beds changed. We specifically asked for replacement towels as the ones we had were not clean. We came back from a lovely day in Leek (Leek is absolutely beautiful) to find one bed changed, however the property was still unclean with the the other issues unresolved. We were not given fresh towels.

This was all such a shame given Leek is an absolutely stunning place. we will definitely return but NOT to this cottage. Do not waste your money!!!

Cottage Review:  

We stayed at Hen Cloud Cottage in October 2016.

The cottage itself was nice, tastefully decorated and had all the amenities we required.

Well, almost.

It was starting to look a little tired around the edges.

In the bathroom the shower head was cracked and leaked, the extractor fan didn't really work (the owner had supplied a dehumidifier to run just outside the door after use), fittings were broken, etc.

The kitchen area was good, but again there were niggles: The extractor fan hood light didn't work, and a few more pans would have been useful (we cooked th

Cottage Review:  

We visited the Hen Cottage Annexe this weekend (late Nov 15) and stayed for two nights. The setting is wonderful (the track leading up is bumpy but not a problem at all) and the cottage is set in the hills. It's ideally situated for exploring in the Peak District, it feels out in the middle of nowhere (which is exactly what we wanted) but equally Leek is only 4 miles away and Buxton only around 10. The cottage itself is clean, comfortable, spacious, with nice roof windows and it's a perfect romantic getaway whether you want a base from which to explore, o

Cottage Review:  

We took a short break of three nights in this delightful property.

As we approached along the bumpy track we wondered what we would find at the end!

A hidden treasure in the form of Hen Cloud annexe awaited us, just to the side of the owners' B & B and nestling close to the Roaches rocks and heather -covered hills.

Lorna and Nick the owners welcomed us and had even left cake in the fridge for hungry travellers!

The property was spotlessly clean and well laid out with everything we needed.

Lots to do and see around here, whether it be walking, climbing o
