“Fantastic stay! Definitely recommended”
Reviewed 14 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We originally booked in March but due to the snow we were unable to travel, the owner very kindly allowed us to book a different date. The owners are very pleasant and have great communication!

The cottage is lovely, I was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was! It is nice and clean and very comfortable. Everything in side the cottage is of high quality! The furniture, mattresses, pillows etc are all of a high standard. We were 6 adults and 2 babies and we found the cottage spacious and comfortable. The owner very kindly provided 2 travel cots which were perfect for our stay.

The cottage has everything you would need, the owners have clearly given some thought and provided towels, cotton pads, face wipes, iron and ironing board etc. The WiFi was reliable and had a great coverage ( we noticed that there were WiFi extenders/boosters upstairs).

As mentioned in another review the phone signal is poor in the village but that is not a reflection of the cottage and in any case if you need to make a phone call you can use the WiFi and make a call via Watts app or another similar app.

There is a lovely garden at the front of the property that provides excellent views of the surroundings, there is also a drive with room for a car, if you have more than one car then you can easily park on the quiet street opposite the cottage ( me and my brother parked our cars on this street without any issues)

“Fabulous cottage in a charming village”
Reviewed 2 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We stayed in the Beech cottage with our family and our stay was simply perfect. Tastefully decorated and ideally located in the heart of a very charming village.
Lesley was a wonderful host and my communication with her was always prompt , very informative and helpful.
Upon our arrival, we found fresh milk in the fridge and some cookies for us, a very sweet gesture :)
We loved our stay there and would recommend this place in a heartbeat.

“Lovely little cottage in a lovely little village ”
Reviewed 8 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Stayed here in July, myself my husband, our two kids and a friend. It's meant to sleep 7 but in all honesty with all sharing one bathroom, this was about the right amount of people. There is an extra toilet on the top floor which was handy. On arrival found nice little touches like milk in the fridge, biscuits on tea tray plus all the little things you need like toilet rolls and hand soap, washing powder etc. Cottage is pretty and was nice and clean. For us the parking in the driveway was tight and a little difficult with our estate car but we managed. kitchen is pretty small but well stocked, and the washer dryer was handy. The village is lovely too although we didn't visit any of the pubs or Anything but we did do some walks. There is plenty of info in the cottage about the local area. Phone signal was non existent here but we managed to get WiFi to work, mostly only in the lounge. Beds were very comfortable and linen and towels were all provided. If looking to come to the peak District again with my family I would definitely consider staying here again it was good value for money and the owners kept in touch with regards to the booking and answered all my questions.

Charlotte, thank you for your review, and I am pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and found the cottage nice and clean, with all the little extras supplied, the beds comfortable and the information I provided for you before your stay useful.
We do state that the cottage sleeps 6 + 1, in a king size room, a single room (which does have a double bed but with access from one side only) and the family room with a king size bed and a single bed. We also make it clear that there is only 1 bathroom with an ensuite basin and wc in the family room.
I agree the parking can be a bit tight if you have a large vehicle, but saying that most people seem to manage, and if you do have difficulty cars can be parked on the quiet adjacent road with no charges.
For people who are on O2 network there is a good mobile signal in the village, but for other networks I'm afraid that is the price we pay for living in the beautiful countryside. We do have wifi, which guests find to be efficient and reliable.
I hope I have answered your points fully, and it would be lovely to see you again. Lesley & Fred

“Beautiful cottage in tranquil village”
Reviewed 12 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a marvelous break with 6 in Birch Cottage. Weather was gorgeous throughout, and the area one of the most beautiful we have been to in England. The cottage was very comfortable and clean. the owners welcoming and helpful, and we loved every minute of our holiday. The upstairs rooms are spacious, downstairs feels a bit smaller, but we had no shortage of space with a group of 6 (4 adults and 2 teenagers).

Hartington, the village, is an oasis of tranquility. We did night walks in the village, walked to Pilsbury, in Dovedale, and went up to Edale (the high Peak District) and the surrounding area one day. Highly recommended!

Liked best: The area is absolutely beautiful
Liked least: Small detail, but the door of the front room (lounge) kept the light out from outside, would be nice if there was more light coming in, but may be impossible to change.
