Nice quirky property clean, and well kept

  • 5 of 5

Ideally based for the Peak District. Total change from normal cottages in a good way. Thoroughly recommend to anyone visiting the area. Received a gorgeous chocolate cake form the owner during stay. Recommend the Jug and Glass for a meal and drinks and visits to Chatsworth House, Heights of Abraham, Tram Museum and Buxton all within easy reach of this property. Congratulations to Mr & Mrs Wood.

Alton Towers & Matlock Bath Trip Visit

  • 5 of 5

Cannot fault the hospitality from the Owners, property was clean and well maintained, home baked chocolate cake arrived Saturday night which was lovely with a cup of tea. Spiral staircases is a challenge but its part of the character and you get used to it! Owners have thoughtfully put tea making facilities and fridges on the top level and the bottom so no need to carry hot drinks about. Nice little touches like bubble bath/shower gel/dish washer tablets/salt and pepper make this a real change from other rental places. To finish off my Son left his teddy in one of the bunk beds, Mr Wood packaged this up and was back with us at home very quickly and will not accept the postage paid, I would recommend this place and will be back again ourselves.

A Wonderful Birthday Treat

  • 4 of 5

It was a surprise treat for my husband's 80th birthday which we shared with several friends and family. We were quite daunted on seeing the spiral staircase to the lower floor where there were two bedrooms, kitchen and dining room, but we soon got used to it although getting the luggage and provisions down was quite an adventure. If we come again, we shall bring a long rope to use as a pulley system. It was quite dangerous for young children.

Despite that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to friends. We were made very welcome and the halloween cake brought to us on Saturday evening was delicious surprise and very welcome. Thank You.

Owner's Response: With regards to the spiral staircase, which is stated in our website, we have quite a few 80th, 90th birthday parties and there are always plenty of young children staying here over the past 17 years. 99% of our customers are always been very satisfied with our accommodation at The Old Mill and Cottage. And, we are much appreciated your custom.
