Beautifully Restored Period Holiday Cottage



Updated: 16-Oct-2016
Holiday Home in Longnor, Nr. Buxton, Peak District, Derbyshire, England. - In The Heart Of The Peak District

Featured in April 2013 as "one of the most stylish and characterful hideaways in the UK" in the Guardian travel series "Cool cottages in ...", Jack's Cottage "ticks off many of the prerequisites of a cosy country cottage for two". The beautifully restored period cottage offers quality accommodation with a heritage feel. With exposed beams, original stone flagged floors and wooden floorboards and an original working range fireplace in the living room, the cottage also benefits from full central heating, modern appliances and a fully enclosed, sunny garden with patio.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Mary

It's hard to write everything in the guest book but we were absolutely delighted with your cottage. The attention to detail you give with regard to the items which you are not obligated to provide made all the difference. Washing up items, tea and coffee making, the fire made up, extra towels and even a spare tooth brush. We would love to come back again and have told all our friends and family how lovely it was.

Thank you again!

Delightful cottage with lovely atmosphere

  • 4 of 5

Charming and helpful owner, pretty cottage and easy walk to pub for meals - and we got to bring our dog! Spent two nights here for our wedding anniversary and it was great. Wine and biscuits left for us and kitchen well equipped. Bed comfy and had a relaxing break. Cottage restored with sensitivity so it easy to imagine the original family who may have lived there and the life they led. Thoroughly recommend Jack's Cottage!

Great stay in village-cottage

  • 4 of 5

A very nice cottage, that delivers everything as promised. Well-maintained, everything available and in perfect working order, clean. The only amenity we missed was a bit of internet access, but being on holiday this was maybe for the best. Great bedroom and bed, smart bathroom with rustic creaking floorboards - nice touch!

Longnor is a nice little town, in fact smaller than we thought. The local convenience store offers everything you would want for your daily breakfast or lunch. Nice tearoom.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review Jack's Cottage. I'm delighted Jack's Cottage met your expectations and you enjoyed your stay in the Peak District. We try to ensure our website truly reflects the cottage our visitors experience, but the question of wi-fi is a difficult one. Fortunately both the pub and tea shop in the village provide free access for those who really need it, but we will keep your comments in mind should we review our decision. With best wishes, Mary.

Beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying here, it was such an escape from everything. It was such a relief to have no wifi. The village had everything I needed (including the cheapest firewood I found in the area for when the evening got cold). The cottage is so comfortable, clean and well decorated but hasn't lost the original features or feeling. The walks around the area are beautiful - especially when the lambs are about. Manchester is a short trip into Buxton and then 50 mins on the train if you want to get into the city. It's idyllic. I couldn't recommend this place enough.

Owner's Response: I am delighted you enjoyed your stay at Jack's Cottage and for taking the time to write such a lovely revue. Nestled in the heart of the Peak District, the pretty village of Longnor is really accessible and I'm so pleased Jack's Cottage provided the perfect base for your holiday. Whilst you enjoyed the lack of wi-fi in the cottage, the local pub and tea room both have free wifi if you really need it! With best wishes, Mary.
