The location was beautiful and picturesque and the cottage was light and spacious. There was a nice pub called the Knights Table a few minutes drive up the road. The owners were really friendly and helpful. The location was quiet but only a ten minute drive into Buxton. We love the area with lots of cycle routes; Monsail, Manifold and Tissington.

Downsdale cottage is a lovely small place perfect if you want to be away from it all, for me it was great no mobile signal or 3G so I was not bothered by work. The cottage is well equiped with everything you need, 2 lovely bedrooms, the bathroom could do with been updated but serve well, the kitchen is well equiped with everything you require, lovely coal fire with free coal just leave the empty bucket at the front door and the owners will fill it for you. The cottage is of the main Buxton to Leak road and in the thick fog that covered us for 4 days the turning is very dangerous and difficult to find, no the owners fault just a word of warning. The night sky was incredible the first 2 nights with shooting stars. All in all a lovely place for small family we have 2 small children and they loved it. Thank you for a lovley stay.

A fantastic opportunity to get away from it all, with lovely views. Cottage fairly comfortable with great kitchen, parking and easy access to the delights of the Peak District. We would stay again which is always a good measure of a place.

A lovely, homely cottage in quiet location but within easy reach of Buxton and the rest of the Peak District. The cottage was great for children and perfect for a family holiday.
