Exceeded expectations!
I booked this cottage for a number of reasons, it was in an area we'd not stayed in before but wasn't far from my home town to catch up with friends and to be honest it was a bargain price. Because of a couple of negative reviews we weren't expecting much but were pleasantly surprised! Contact with Tracy was easy and pleasant before and during rental. We were aware of issues people had had with the driveway and so familiarised ourselves with it via Google Maps, Tracy also advised on it prior to our arrival and although tight my husband quite quickly became expert at reversing our Astra estate in so don't let this put you off! Once in and with the gate shut the terraced back yard is completely dog friendly and has great views. Slightly disappointed that the hot tub wasn't available but completely understandable, it was February after all! The house itself is on the small side but perfectly formed! With a very well equipped kitchen (we baked gingerbread men, made spaghetti bolognaise and chicken curry during our stay without issue) and the most comfortable beds we've ever slept in. Also pleased with the number of walks available literally from the doorstep, took the dog on a different route each morning! Lots to do within a 15-30 minute drive too, we enjoyed Monkey Forest and Dimmingsdale (Ramblers Retreat had quirky outdoor seating area with food and drinks to die for!). Just a little further away we discovered Thornbridge Brewery, their tours are great value and can be prebooked online, even the drive was delightful and Bakewell itself was stunning with a variety of lovely original shops. About 20 min walk from the house gets you to Churnet Valley Railway (stunning steam engine, very friendly volunteers and good value gift shop) and the Railway Inn with good food, great staff, dog and child friendly. All in all, we had a great time and would highly recommend. Thanks Tracy and Rob for letting us stay in your lovely, cosy home from home!

Cosy cottage, great base for exploring
We stayed here for a few months following our house becoming uninhabitable. We found the owner helpful and accommodating to our needs. We were two adults and children, and although a little cosy at times, we felt at home straight away. The views at the rear are fantastic and even better when viewed from the hot tub! The house is well equipped, clean and well maintained. We all found the beds very comfortable and linen fresh and of good quality. The location offers easy access to nice walks and the opportunity to visit local villages such as Alton and the Peak District. If you are after a cosy homely cottage for you and your family, this is perfect.

Extremely disappointing in several ways!
I wouldn't recommend booking this cottage for 4 people, although it does sleep 4 it is very small. The drawers upstairs smelt quite damp so we did not use them. All the bins were completely full when we arrived and the bin collection wasn't for a week. The hot tub, although lovely when working, kept cutting out and we didn't receive much help with that when trying to make contact. The shower did not drain, so just filled up quickly(we even tried to unblock!) The next door neighbour was agressive towards us when my husband had to park his motorbike outside the house for 2 minutes while we backed the car in, I was quite upset by it. The area is lovely and close to lots of attractions so it was a shame that we were faced with these problems.
