Lovely cottage in a very good location, all the places you need to visit are easily accessible, very good.
Mrs Williams
Lovely cottage - great location (loads of walks from the door), very comfortable and very well equipped for the size. Only comment, you need to make sure at the kitchen window can be opened - otherwise the kitchen is going to deteriorate very quickly with damp, which would be real shame. Also could have some information on more local amenities - the mobile fish and chip van (arrived Tues & Fri evening just at the top of the street) and the cafe in Botton Village (Camphill Community) made a good walk.
Dr Jones
A beautifully presented cottage with everything you might need, such attention to detail. A very picturesque location and so peaceful with many lovely walks without having to go far.
Mrs Watts
Very compact, but beautifully finished and presented. We had no complaints about its cleanliness when we arrived but when we did our farewell clean through there were a couple of points that made us wonder whether the cleaner is assiduous as should be, so marked it down a bit. It's so easy to clean it would be tempting to skimp. It was a warm week, without being brilliantly sunny like most of England. Nevertheless the central heating, which was programmed to be on, made the cottage too warm at night and we turned it off. The cottage info sheet correctly informs bin collection is on Monday, but the blue recycling bin was not collected that day. When is it collected? This should be added to info.

We particularly enjoyed this cottage because of the obvious care and attention the owners had given to ensure that guests enjoyed their stay to the full. The property was so enjoyable because of its unique decor and had a quirkiness that was very endearing.

Just lovely ! Immaculately clean and cost cottage. Perfect location for walking and biking, shops and pubs.
Mrs Fieldhouse
The cottage was perfect and decorated very tastefully. We had a bottle of wine and biscuits left for us , a thoughtful touch. It was situated in the lovely village of Castleton with great walks only a short drive away. There was a lovely neighbour . He was very knowledgable about the area and gave lots of useful information.
