“Absolutely fantastic.”
Reviewed 1 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Beautiful comfy cottage. From the basics in the kitchen to the lovely bottle of wine which we thought was a lovely touch. Cannot fault anything. Bed was so comfy, the bathroom / shower was great and sitting relaxing in the lounge with the log burner watching the snow outside was like something off a film. PERFECT !!

So glad you had a great break and that we even managed to put a dusting of snow out for you! Hopefully next time you can visit in the Summer and see the garden at its best. Martin

“Gorgeous Little Cottage.”
Reviewed 22 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Jewel Cottage is a perfect destination to stay. Extremely well presented, very clean. What can I say.. the bed linen smelt so fresh is was a good as at home. The beds were very comfortable as was the sofa in the lounge. The little touches like tea bags, coffee & even milk in the fridge already for us on our arrival were greatly appreciated after a long drive from Cornwall!
The cottage has been refurbished to a high standard and it is evident throughout. The lovely cushions, curtains and carpets and furniture make Jewel Cottage extra special.
The only problem was the parking area which is quite tight and the lack of any lighting made it more difficult. The wall and the bumper of my car did not get along :-( Maybe a good idea would be some reflectors on the wall? Not to be put off though, I would most definately stay again in this little gem of a cottage again.

“A "Diamond"”
Reviewed 28 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Where to begin??,from the moment Martin met us at the station (yes, you read that right),to his taking us to supermarket for provisions,then driving us to the cottage,our stay at Jewel cottage was just perfect.

Everything about the cottage was first class,from the homily sitting room to the beautiful bedrooms,spacious bathroom,well equipped kitchen,we couldn't find fault with anything,plus the little touches that Martin had provided,wine,homemade cake,satsumas,etc,and as it was Christmas had decorated the cottage with a real festive feel.

We will certainly recommend this property to anyone looking to explore the Derbyshire countryside as there are lots of attractions within easy traveling distance.We will also be looking to book Jewel Cottage again in the future.

“jewel cottage is a real gem.”
Reviewed 18 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

I have nothing but good things to say about this cosy, spotlessly clean and well appointed cottage. As soon as we booked we were contacted by Martin the owner with very helpful tips for dining out, places to visit and parking etc. The price we paid for two nights for four people was considerably less than 1 night in a bed and breakfast so we were pleasantly surprised just how luxurious it was. The beds were the most comfortable I've ever experienced, the kitchen well equipped, the log burner all set up and ready to go and there was even a complimentary bottle of wine (a lovely touch). The attention to detail was second to none and we have all agreed we will return.
