We had a fantastic holiday in this cottage. It was so very well equipped and suited our 3 generation needs perfectly. The location was ideal with Bakewell and Buxton both short drives and other attractions all within half an hour. We enjoyed meals at 3 different pubs, our favourite being the recently opened Railway @ Buxton. The house keeper Jo was very warm and friendly when we spoke on the phone. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants a holiday in this area, we were very impressed. Thank you.
