Amazing !!
Had a lovely much needed break at Peacock cottage from 27th-2nd December. It had everything we needed it was a home from home with lots of extras like the gorgeous flowers upon arrival. The cottage was decorated and furnished beautifully and we felt at home. Brilliant location for days out, we visited Derwent reservoir, Castletown, Matlock Bath, Buxton,Leek and Bakewell. Would highly recommend The lamb inn in Chinley (SK236AL) for lovely home cooked food. We can?t thank Brian enough for his hospitality and understanding from booking the cottage till leaving, we would definitely love to come back. Thanks for the New Year's Eve memories !!

Perfect 10/10
A wonderfully converted cottage everything was such a high standard with everything we needed provided. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The setting had lovely views across the farm and hills are hens and peacock roaming around. The host made sure we were settled in and knew how everything in the cottage was explained. We had a relaxing week and shame we had to come home this is definitely 5star and would recommend a visit.

A charming warm cottage with nothing left wanting!
My wife and I stayed at the cottage from 4th to 11th November. The arrangements for our arrival was faultless. The owner (Brian) contacted me by text advising that we could go in early as he had completed the handover from the previous occupants. On arrival (on a cold & wet day), the cottage was warm and cosy - just perfect to settle down and start our week. There is nothing that can be added other than, this place is perfect. Everything that you need for self catering is here. Thanks Brian.

I cannot emphasise enough how fabulous this rental is. I came with the wife and two daughters for a weeks relaxation and sightseeing and we were not disappointed. For us it really was a week of luxury as there has been no expense spared when renovating this cottage. The daughters loved their own private space in the loft conversion and we couldn't believe that we had a roll top bath to enjoy as well as two recliner leather sofas. The whole family loved the animals especially the Peacock (who the kids named Kevin). There are so many positives about this cottage that I would run out of space on this website and at just over £500 for the week it was great value for money. There is loads to do near by and Alton Towers is only 30 minutes away.

The best holiday cottage I have stopped in.
The beautiful Peak District has a secret jewel in it's crown. Peacock Cottage is without any doubt the best holiday cottage I have ever stopped in for a weeks holiday. The location is close to many of the Peak Districts best places to visit. The cottage is without doubt the cleanest I have ever stayed in and the facilities are 5 star. If comfort is something you want in a cottage for a holiday break then the cottage should give you more than you may expect. As an avid hill walker I really expect after a day on the hills a decent shower to relax in after a hard trek and this cottage has two of them which are up there with the best I have ever had in the worlds 5 star and beyond hotels. There are two leather sofa's in the charming lounge which have the brilliant features of electronic controls to enable them to be put in just the right reclined position for four people to have a well earned snooze before dinner. Or a charming patio over looking the surrounding hills to have a Gin and Tonic and watch the beautiful peacocks as they strut around the garden. The well equipped bedrooms are delightful and the beds are some of the best I have ever slept in.The kitchen is full of all the gadgets you are ever likely to need.The owner of the cottage Brian is one of the most charming and witty persons I have ever met and as I am intending to return I am looking forward to his company along with his delightful family who live next door. As the cottage is located on a working farm there is plenty to see going on there. I wish I could give 6 stars because this property deserves it.
