A Treasure

  • 5 of 5

Godfrey Hole Cottage, located in beautiful, tranquil countryside provides excellent accommodation. Attention to detail is evident throughout the stylish, attractively presented cottage.

Peter and Alison are charming and efficient hosts, always willing to share their comprehensive knowledge of the surrounding area.

We will always have wonderful memories of the idyllic interlude spent in such a delightful environment.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We really loved Godfrey Hole. It was warm and cosy and very well equipped. We'd love to come back as there's so much to see and do in the area. And the owners were very flexible about altering our booking when snow hit. Thank you.

excellent warm home in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic 4-day stay with our kids at Godfrey Home. Comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen, cosy launch, where after a full day of being outside the kids could watch a movie. Felt like being at home. The occasional visit of Godfrey the peacock. Peter and Alison are such nice people who clearly do the things they do with love and attention. The location is very central. Many nice places to visit in the near surroundings. What a beautiful country side. We fell in love with it. Visiting a place is also about the people you meet, and thanks to the very warm hosts the experience for us was unforgettable.

Comfortable well equipped cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Godfrey Hole Cottage. It was clean and well equipped for five of us with comfortable beds and cosy wood burning stove. It was a great base for exploring this part of the Peak District, with scenic walking and cycle trails, caves, fishing and lovely local market towns. Pete and Ali were very welcoming - we'll definately be back!
