RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS
We wanted somewhere convenient to stay that allowed us to visit the RHS Chatsworth Show and this fitted the bill perfectly being only a short drive to Chatsworth. The fact that a pet dog is allowed was also a plus. The upper floor with a large bedroom, good bathroom and spacious patio area is delightful. The good weather allowing us to fully utilise this. However downstairs is a different matter. The large lounge seems to be virtually underground with no windows and so is dark and gloomy and the fact that there was a dehumidifier running constantly suggests it is damp. The location is right on the A6 and so there is considerable road noise.
I stayed at poachers rest for4 days with my dog. The accommodation was clean and tidy, and spacious. But I would never stay there again as there is an extremely busy road right outside the house. And the traffic, which includes not just cars, but big artic wagons, and noisy tractors that speed by. There is no gates to this property, so my dog had to be on the lead all the time. And that includes from the car to the house, house to the car. And I couldn't open any doors to the property, or go in the garden, as it was all open,with access to the road. So it felt a bit closterfobic in the house. Also, the owners never once asked if I was ok, or was I having a nice time. Even when I left, it was me that had to knock on their door, as they lived next door, to say goodbye, even then the lady, never asked if I had had a nice time. It was a bit like online banking. There was no friendly conversation. It was a very nice area, with Chatsworth and Haddon hall ten minutes away.
Good location and space
Quite a large rental property greeted us. The hosts had left a box of Easter chocolates, bottle of wine, and flowers on the table to welcome us, but we did not meet them during our stay. The property has everything one needs for a comfortable stay (including a second bathroom!). The upper floor bedroom was bright and warm. We weren't able to utilize the balcony due to the cool weather, but it is easily accessed from the bedroom; and very private. The cottage is well equipped. My only concerns were the uneven heights of some of the steps (inside) as there were multiple levels to be enjoyed. The recreation room had a dampness and mustiness with a room scent that was quite overpowering. The dehumidifier was working and we frequently emptied it. One of the cupboards also shared the musty smell; but otherwise this is a lovely place.
Mr & Mrs
We stopped at Poachers Rest for a weeks retreat with our 2 dogs in January. The cottage was of a very high standard, a good size with large bedroom, kitchen and lounge. The photos on the website do not do it justice, although it is next to a main road we found it very peaceful and relaxing. The location was great, with lots of walks and lovely villages right on your doorstep. Being dog friendly was also a must for us and having a large garden for the dogs to run in was great. This is defiantly a place I would recommend to anyone an we will return again. The family who own the cottage are next door and are very lovely and welcoming, and even came across to check if we were ok when we had a brief powercut.
