Great little bolt hole!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a very wet 4 days after new year, but the rain did not put a dampener on our stay. We walked for miles, dogs & children in tow, then rushed back to our cottage to get warm & dry. The separate boot room was invaluable for washing filthy dogs & hang up soaking waterproofs. The cottage was always warm on our return, with fabulous underfloor heating. The fire was then lit & we holed up for the day, playing games with our children, many of which were in the cottage. There was a super selection of DVDs, which we also enjoyed. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook each night & was spotlessly clean. The bedrooms & bathrooms were beautifully presented & the beds were very comfy. The owners were there if you needed them & were very friendly & helpful. All in all, a great stay, at a very reasonable price.

Total rest and relaxation guaranteed

  • 5 of 5

We have thoroughly enjoyed our 3-night stay at Cavendish Cottage. Helen and Andy have thought of everything to make your stay feel like a home-from-home. Everything is top quality - inside and out! There are beautiful walks from the doorstep. Once you've stayed here - you'll keep wanting to return I'm sure!

Nicely presented and spotlessly clean in a quiet and private location about half an hours walk from the main village of Ashover. We can definitely recommend it and would be happy to re-book. The friendly farm shop is on the way to Ashover and does a good breakfast. Dogs and muddy walkers are welcome in all the locals. Beautiful views and good walking all around.
