Deer Croft cottage
Cottage was a good base to visit other places of interest. The main road directly from the drive with no paths made it a bit unsafe for walking,especially with our young dog. The owners did allow us to use the grassed area next to their cottage though. Cottage was clean with all necessary equipment but we had a few bumped heads in the bedrooms and bathroom due to the sloped ceilings.

Good location in need of improvement
We have just returned from a lovely week at the cottage. The owners were very friendly and let us come a bit early. We have three small children who loved seeing the deer in the field next to the property. There is loads to do in the area. The tram village was great and we managed some beautiful walks. The cottage was nice a clean and big enough for our requirements, however we had issues with the stair gate. There was one left out for us to use but it didn?t fit in any gaps - at bottom of stairs/top of stairs or bedrooms! Slightly dangerous given the ages of our children. Also there were exposed wires and a light socket hanging off a wall. Again found this to be dangerous given the ages of our children. Nothing that couldnt be fixed easily. The place just needed a fresh lick of paint as had been patched up with different shades of the same colour.

Amazing !!!! Didn?t want to leave perfect
What a stunning little quaint place ! This was a perfect place for our family of four and Dalmatian Macy. Our two boys are 2years old and 4 years old and loved being able to see the deer out the windows all the time. All the features are high tech, it?s clean, modern, and has everything you need. It?s spacious enough and the kids loved running round in the double garage for a minute to let off some steam. It was so so nice, great location for loads of places. We went to the caves, elvaston castle, cusworth hall and was going to try the steam train but had to come home. We went to the railway pub which was lovely food, real chips and fab portions. We also went to the hanging gate ( a chain ) which was lovely too, with a cosy real fire. Really enjoyed the break maybe a few more DVD?s needed but perfect thanks so so much

Misleading and disappointing
We started at Deer Croft Cottage last week. The cottage itself is ok but key points to note; 1. It's a venison farm rather than family herd of deer - the deer are all ear tagged and processed on site, discovered by the big sign offering venison for sale on site. This is fine if you are ok knowing the nice deer you are looking at are due for the dinner plate - I wasn't comfortable with that 2. The gorgeous dog Agnes is indeed gorgeous however she spent a lot of time in a small cage on the driveway when we were there. We welcomed her visits happy to see her out of a cage! But note, if you aren't keen on dogs (which we are so hard to imagine however...), you will get a visit and the owners don't intervene with this - we never saw the owners of the house despite the cottage actually being attached to their house - that's not mentioned either in the spec! 3. It's off quite a busy road so if wanting to walk anywhere bear that in mind especially if you have children 4 A travel cot and high chair and toys are there which are good but there are no stair gates which isn't great as there is the main staircase then small steps to both bedrooms 5. Kitchen could do with having a few basics - cooking oil, foil etc.. 6. FLIES! Everywhere! We had at least 5 in the cottage at anytime, usually more. Not sure if there was a bin problem or if they were attracted to the waste tank next door to the driveway by the cottage 7. Wifi was intermittent - we tended to get kicked off in the evenings 8. Small detail.but the batteries in the to remote didn't work! And neither did the lamp in one of the bedrooms. Ok small moan but after all the other things it got a bit annoying! If I'm honest, I'd look elsewhere if I were you!

We liked the peace, tranquillity and the setting amongst the hills. Always, when we looked out of the windows we could see the deer just a few feet away, and to be able to watch the two 2 week old fawns running and jumping about was a real privilege. The cottage was very warm and comfortable, so well equipped and very well laid out. We were all very sad to leave and have already recommended to our family and friends. The young couple who own it are lovely and work very hard to make your stay enjoyable. They deserve to be successful, we wish them well.
