A great little cottage in a lovely location

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from a few days away with my father. We were blessed with amazing weather which always helps. The location of the cottage is brilliant for access to the Roaches, Leek, Buxton and the surrounding area.

The cottage was a great size for the two of us, was immaculately clean and really well equipped. The off road parking for multiple cars and outside space is great & often missing from smaller cottages so we appreciated that too.

The beds are comfy & my dad had no trouble at all in the bunk bed - perfectly fine for an adult. The only thing he struggled with with his bad leg were the seats at the breakfast bar in the kitchen - luckily it was such lovely weather we were able to moved and eat outside.

As the ex owner of a holiday cottage myself I know customer feedback is always helpful so my honest negative feedback would be :

The seating in the sitting room could do with reviewing. Plenty of it for two of us but not great for relaxing - Three bolt upright bucket type seats with low backs and one old saggy sofa.

A few wooden spoons or similar would be a great addition in the kitchen too - there was nothing really other than a metal serving spoon to stir things in the pans while they were cooking.

Also in the kitchen some smaller bowls for serving fruit or a little bit of ice cream would be great. The ceramic bowls were a bit big.

Other than that (Oh and a woodburner would be ace!!) everything was great - thank you.

Perfect cozy barn in our ideal location

  • 5 of 5

The barn was ideally situated for our stay. It was very clean and very cozy as the weather was as on the chilly side. Anne was very helpful in the lead up to our stay, any questions or queries were answered straightaway. The local pub The Red Lion served delicious food and only a short walk from the barn. We visited the National Memorial Arboretum which was amazing and well worth a visit as was Gladstone Pottery. We had a perfect stay.

Splendid

  • 5 of 5

This charming little cottage has all the modern commodities expected in a larger property while clearly a lot of time has been spent on the decor of the place - with plenty of attention to detail. The owners are lovely and made our family feel very welcome. The kids fell in love with the neighbours - a cow and her calf, who they christened Betty and Michelle.
