Great place to stay
Wow what a lovely cottage to stay so welcoming little home from home. Andrew the owner has thought of everything very clean, comfy beds well equipped kitchen. The cottage is central for lots to see and do. A must stay.

Perfect base to explore the Peak District
Three of us stayed for a week to, mainly, attend a wedding in Budby. This proved to be the perfect place for us all. Both bedrooms upstairs and both with own ensuite so we all had our own space. It is attached to a small farm but completely private. Not in any village but you can walk to one or a very short drive to lovely villages like Ashover and a longer, but spectacular one to places like Bakewell, Castleton, etc. Super roomy living space, kitchen well equipped, and host Andrew leaves the essentials for you on arrival plus some fresh muffins. Great Wifi too. A bit tricky to find but, once there, the photos don't do it justice. If you don't need to be in a village you won't be sorry with this.

Great little cottage
Found this cottage through Sykes rentals, booked for a week in late September. We were immediately impressed with the Old Blacksmiths. It's had a nice modern refurbishment and is warm and cosy. We felt was equipped with everything we needed (apart from perhaps some kitchen tongs!). The owner greeted us and left cakes, milk and tea bags on arrival which was a nice touch. As the descriptions says, both bedrooms have their own shower room en suite which we found very useful. The cottage is in a lovely quiet setting and looks out over fields. Made a good base for exploring the peaks and local sights such as Heights of Abraham, Chatsworth and Hardwick Hall.

Lovely, comfortable cottage that was well equipped. Beautiful location and good for exploring the Peak District. We would recommend it.

The photos do not do this property justice, it is excellent accommodation. It was spacious downstairs, and highly furnished with a well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms are both en-suite with large showers. It is in a quiet area on the edge of the glorious Derbyshire dales.
