Lovely cosy cottage in a beautiful village location
We really enjoyed our short stay at Daisy Cottage. We found the cottage so well equipped for us and our children, especially the kitchen. The beds and duvets were really comfy and the wood burner made our evenings cosy (it was July but felt rather chilly). Kids enjoyed toasting marshmallows using the chiminea outside. We had three lovely walks from the front door of the cottage, and another three gorgeous walks nearby at Padley Gorge, Robin Hood's Stride, and Dovedale Steps. We also visited Chatsworth which is only 20 minutes away by car. The Peak District is beautiful and this cottage was a lovely place to stay. The owner was also really helpful with our requests. I would recommend this cottage.
Booked this cottage for 4 July 2020 after lockdown. The cottage clearly has not been cleaned to a decent standard. Bath dirty! Something had obviously been poured around the bath and not wiped as it had set and plug hole green!! Dust and dirt on hi fi and table lamp! Large dirty fingerprints on mirror in bedroom. Light switches dirty. Table mats dirty. No pillow protectors. Kitchen work surfaces and bowl in sink not cleaned to a decent standard either. No tv remote. Dirty by anyone's standards. Not acceptable!!!
Lovely cottage, great location
Stayed here as a family of 4 (2 adults, 4 year old and 7 year old) for a week. The cottage was clean & generally well-equipped (there was even a wok, weighing scales and several good kitchen knives) though a larger freezer & a washing machine would have been nice. Cosy living room & bedrooms, big bathroom. Very well set up for children with loads of toys, books and DVDs. It's in a cute village close to Matlock/Matlock Bath and not too far from Bakewell or Buxton. There's a shop very close by which was handy. Only gripe was that the house info manual mentioned an array of bins, not all of which were present. Messaged the owner about this and didn't get a reply which felt like poor service (and we ended up taking our recycling home to dispose of!).
Comfortable cottage but let down by numerous MINOR faults
This is generally a good standard cottage and we enjoyed our holiday. The place was clean and a reasonable level of comfort. The quality of amenities was OK but not "excellent".
We were a little disappointed that, given the relatively premium price, the cottage lacked a few "extras". Nothing major that had a significant impact on our stay but enough to become a bit annoying. For example: 10-year-old TV with limited digital channels; no facility for catch-up TV (e.g. BBC iPlayer)..... a NowTV or Roku box is very cheap; slow internet; insufficient sockets (e.g. 4 appliances by sofa but only 2 sockets); squeeky bedroom doors (un-oiled); out-of-date food in kitchen cupboards (cleaner or owner should be clearing these items out - now thrown away by us); no black-out blinds (despite the cottage instructions saying there were blinds) and very thin curtains that are too narrow to completely cover windows (we had to cover windows with bath towels!); no electrical power to gas cooker so automatic ignition did not function; instruction pack from owner received my email on our arrival day was not up-to-date (e.g. no bin collection dates for 2018, incorrect info re: window blinds, door keys, etc).
So nothing major but shows inattention by the owner to detail. A major electrical fault with bathroom extractor fan occurred on our penultimate day (fuses blew and smell of burning wires!). We notified the owner by email as no mobile phone reception in cottage but no response or acknowledgement from owner. Not great communication!
We have just returned from an amazing week at the gorgeous Daisy Cottage. What a stunning location and property it is and it is right in the heart of the village but also benefiting from a rural location. The cottage was so well equipped and really felt like a home from home. I can't think of one thing that wasn't catered for.
Anyone staying I would definitely recommend a visit to the Old Bowling Green, a lovely welcoming pub that serves delicious food as well.
This was our first visit to the Peak District but it won't be our last and Daisy Cottage will be our choice of property.
