“Lovely cottage for our holiday”

Ideal base for exploring the Peak District. Fresh bread and cookies on arrival were greatly appreciated. Liam, Dawn and Jordy were very welcoming and a good source of local knowledge. The cottage is homely and wanted for nothing. We would highly recommend the cottage.

“Relaxing location, warm friendly welcome.”

On arrival we found a very well appointed holiday cottage with a welcome supply of kitchen cupboard essentials and some delicious homemade rock cakes. The cottage itself was very comfy with plush sofas and good quality bedding.

You definitely need a car to fully enjoy the local area as the bus service requires some planning, however Kniveton has a great local pub in the Red Lion where the food is tasty and competitively priced. Waitrose and Co-op are in nearby Ashbourne for stocking up on other items.

We visited Carsington Water and Chatsworth House as well as catching up with friends in Derby. All within easy driving distance but take the back roads as the scenery is stunning.

Overall a very relaxing week in wonderful surroundings.

“Splendid cottage in rural location”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Relaxing break in a well appointed cottage situated in a great location. Easy access to Carsington Waters, Matlock, Heights of Abraham and the Peak District. Children were made especially welcome by the owners of the cottage. Highly recommended.

“Beautiful Cottage, with a warm welcome, excellent location for the Peaks...amazing home made rock cakes!”
Reviewed 16 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I stayed at Milk Maids Cottage with my two sons over Easter. Lovely cottage, beautifully clean and newly reburbished, with a great kitchen diner. When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed and found milk, tea, sugar, coffee and home made bread and rock cakes, which were amazing!

The cottage is located well for the Peak District and is set in a beautiful little village with the small market town of Ashbourne only 10 minutes drive away. If you are into being spun upside down and generally thrown around, its also only 1/2 an hour to Alton Towers.

I have stayed in many rented cottages and this is one of the best. If you haven't discovered the Peaks yet I would highly recommend it.

“Cosy, well equipped and friendly.”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Excellent base for exploring Derbyshire, quiet village with lovely walks nearby. It is a well appointed house, with a comfortable living room that has games and books and a TV/DVD. The house was clean and tidy and has a well equipped kitchen. The living area is spacious.

We appreciated the friendly welcome the owners gave us with home baked bread on arrival and helpful advice on local walks.
