These cottages are superb. Steve and Phil are amazing at providing impeccable accommodation, with attention to detail hard to find in other cottages we have stayed. It is high, semi isolated but with the warmth of both welcome and charm that we always find entrancing. It is great when we arrive, sad when we go. Well done to you both....

But what made our visit so special was the quality of the accommodation, the friendliness of the proprietors and the attention to detail...from the "welcome" provisions (locally sourced...

My wife, Maxine, fell in love with Candle Cottage at Blakelow Farm when we stayed in 2006; so much so that we returned a year later. The lure of Bonsall Moor, set peacefully above the human race through Matlock and its Bath, returned late last year, so here we are again in delightful Candle Cottage. The friendly welcome extends to...

Everything you need for a truly romantic relaxing break: a cottage very well equipped for dining in, beautiful walks from your doorstep, peace, quiet, the most spectacular views, a DVD library to rival Sky and a bed so amazingly comfortable we overslept most mornings..oh and not...
