End of an era?
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 there nearly every day due to dietary requirements) The heating system was good, and kept us toasty during our very autumnal stay. The hot tub was fun, but the lid was almost impossible to lift the lid as the gas-assist was broken. As mentioned previously, access to the property was up a very bumpy farm track, so if you don't have an all-wheel drive vehicle be prepared to take it very slowly. However, the scenery was stunning and the area was full of great places to visit, so the bumpy drive every morning was worth it! I did get the impression that it's the end of an era for the cottage though. The owner was a little rude and uninterested when we spoke to her (we had to ask for some bedding for the single bed, and had to go to her house in person as we had zero mobile signal and so couldn't ring her. When I jokingly mentioned the lack of phone signal she responded "Well, that's not my problem is it") which was a shame as previous reviewers had sung her praises. However, as the For Sale signs were up outside I think it was just a case of the business winding down after a good run. All in all, a very pleasant cottage that could do with a lick of paint and a freshen up - which I hope the next owners do as it really is a wonderful place.

The cottage is well located, it feels very isolated, but was actually not too far to get to pubs and shops. The conservatory on the front was a lovely sun trap and I enjoyed reading in there. The overall cleanliness, d?cor and comfort was outstanding and the automatic gate was very convenient!

Warm, cosy, romantic cottage in an idyllic setting - perfect after a stressful week
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, or somewhere to just relax (we did a bit of both). The heating is also really effective (not an exciting point(!) but if you travel in the winter the cottage retains heat really well and warms up to be really toasty very quickly if you've been out for the day. Lorna, the owner, is really friendly and cakes and milk were available on arrival which was a really nice touch. I would recommend this to anyone, it's a really nice place.

Hidden treasure!
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 or simply relaxing with visiting relatives as we did. Loved it and would definitely think about a return visit.
