Beautiful location ! very spacious and comfortable. One of the nicest holiday rentals I have stayed in.

Little problem with the fridge door not closing properly sometimes as it gets caught on unit next to it but otherwise all good .

Stunning house with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Lakeview is a quite beautiful property. All the rooms are lovely and the master bedroom in particular has a gorgeous view of Carsington Water. The location is ideal for exploring the Peak District and there are also wonderful walks right from the house. The pub down the road (5 mins walk), The Miners Arms serves excellent food at great value. There is also plenty to do on the lake should you wish. However, it is the lovely evenings sat out on the patio watching the sun go down which we will remember in particular. Altogether, highly recommended.

Beautiful property, great location

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed a long weekend break at Lakeview. The property was very clean, well equipped and ideally situated for walks, touring or simply relaxing and appreciating the views.

From the initial booking to organizing our stay, the owner was extremely helpful and friendly.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to family and friends.
