Clean, comfortable & relaxing

The cottage was in a quiet location. The fascilities were excellent with thoughtful extra touches to welcome you. (It was almost dark when we arrived & the lights were on to greet us).
Ideally situated for exploring the Peak District's natural & industrial past. So much to see & do' whatever the weather.

Great base for exploring peak district

Good value for money. Generally met our expectations (ie your description did not over sell it)

Main bedroom great character.

Stairs need a little care (my mother in law had to be taken to hospital when she slipped and hurt her finger).

Kitchen well equipped.

One of the best we've stayed in.

The cottage was perfect. The location was 'off the beaten track' in a quiet hamlet yet not too far to drive to attractions such as Dovedale and Carsington Water. It was lovely to sit in the back garden with a wonderful view of the countryside. The owners were welcoming yet didn'tt intrude. Inside it was modern yet cosy, we didn't want to leave! Great value for money.

Wonderful, relaxing stay.

My Sister & I have just returned from 'Aunt Janes' Cottage. We had a 3 night stay, the snow fell heavily on the day we arrived but the cottage was so warm and cosy, the weather really didn't bother us. The cottage is in a perfect location for visiting nearby attractions and beautiful walking countryside. We were very pleasantly surprised at how clean, comfortable, cosy & well equipped the cottage is. We returned home very relaxed and would love to return again and reserve both properties for the rest of the family to join us.


Cosy cottage in a tranquil location

We had a very warm reception from Jill, the owner, on the day we arrived. She also gave us a welcome pack of tea, coffee and biscuits. The kitchen was well-equiped and clean. The standard of cleanliness in the whole house was very good. The decor of the house was very pleasing and the beds were comfortable. The house is set in a peaceful location but is not too remote. All in all, we had a very pleasant stay and an enjoyable holiday in this part of the country.

Great place to stay - cannot fault it

I almost don't want to say how good 'Aunt Jane's' was in case it gets booked out and we can't stay there again when we want to! We stay at two or three (reasonably priced) cottages a year on our travels, and this was up there with the best.
A lovely welcome by the hosts, Jill and Mike, set the tone, friendly and helpful without being intrusive.
The cottage was very clean and neat, the kitchen well supplied, and a 'welcome pack' of coffee, tea and biscuits was a nice touch.
The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of storage for our clothes.
The bathroom had a very efficient shower over a nice deep bath.
Whilst there we visit both the Ecclesbourne Valley and Peak Rail heritage railways and can recommend them too.
Well placed to visit the wonderful Derbyshire Dales I have no hesitation recommending this cottage. We will certainly be back!

Tranquil and beautiful

Fabulous cottage, the best equipped I have ever rented. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Located in a very quiet hamlet, but only ten minutes from Matlock Bath, great for all the local attractions. Would recommend totally. Be prepared, though, very poor phone signal and intermittent wifi if you can't live without that sort of thing!


Excellent, centrally located two bed barn conversion

Fantastic two bedroom barn conversion, located between Ashbourne and Matlock. Fantastic for couple or small family with all amenities.

Quiet location, ideal for walking and touring the Peak District.

Mr & Mrs Thurtle

Loved the cottage and the farm. The owner was really friendly and the kitchen had everything you could possibly want.

Mrs Taylor

I found the property to be absolutely stunning and far and away exceeded my expectations in all ways. Everything was there including cafetiere and vegetable steamer - things that other landlords would not consider. The patio area was superb and the views stunning. Overall the property gets a ten out of ten. The owner of the property was extremely helpful but unobtrusive as well and nothing was too much trouble. I will without a doubt use this property again. It was a complete home from home (except for the cows!!).

Main bedroom very good. Easy access to lots of walking in Derbyshire. Cottage in middle of nowhere was very nice.

The cottage was so peaceful when we arrived and it was lovely to be able to sit in the back garden looking over the wonderful country views.

Miss Howbridge

The location was restful and very central to all the tourist sites. The hosts are very friendly and helpful, we couldn't have wished for a better location.

Mr Muscroft

We left Derbyshire 10 years ago and this was an excellent opportunity to revisit old haunts and meet up with old friends. The knowledge that each day we would return to a cosy, well equipped cottage was a bonus. The owners were friendly and welcoming. Altogether, a very enjoyable week.

Mrs Daly

Aunt Jane's was such a tranquil place. It was just the holiday we needed. The owners couldn't do enough for us and nothing was too much trouble. I was even allowed to feed one of the calves.

Mrs Jamieson

The cottage seems as though it is in the middle of nowhere but it's actually in the middle of everywhere and makes a great base. The cottage was very well equipped, comfortable and warm.

Miss Skinner
