“Cancelled-three days before trip!”
Reviewed July 31, 2020 for a stay in July 2020

Planned well in advance to celebrate a 70th birthday and recent birth of new grandson the owner pulled out of the contract three days before our arrival date (and two days before having banked our breakages money). It was left to the company to drop the bombshell and deal with two very angry customers! The reason given: circumstances beyond their control. Hmm! That could mean absolutely anything and IMO was unprofessional in the extreme. Had the owner ever contacted us at all to explain/apologise it might have gone down better-but she didn’t. Buyer beware!

“Amazing Retreat!”
Reviewed July 13, 2020 for a stay in May 2020

Philippa our host was so welcoming and friendly, and literally had thought of everything! We were welcomed with a friendly face and a chat, alongside some fresh eggs, biscuits and milk, so we could have a cup of tea and a digestive :) - there was even a few little doggie treats for our pooch! We had such a wonderful stay and loved it here, feeding Larry the Lamb and his friends!

Philippa was so helpful throughout our stay, recommending local produce which was delicious! - an exceptional host, nothing was too much trouble. The retreat had everything you needed, including a BBQ which was lovely to enjoy in the sunny garden. Everything was finished to a very high standard and beautifully decorated.

I highly recommend you stay at any of these properties, you won't be disappointed - especially with the pub food down the road, definitely try the pie's at the Red Lion about a 5 mins walk from the Retreat!

“A fantastic retreat”
Reviewed September 17, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

My wife and I stayed for a weekend for our first trip away with our 3 month old daughter and had a lovely time. The retreat is very peaceful and a good location for walking and trips further afield.

The retreat is very well equipped and a very good size for a couple and a child (even with the masses of baby accessories that we bring!). The village pub is a short walk away and does good and hearty food.

Phillipa was very welcoming and helpful.

We would definitely stay again.

“Definitely coming back”
Reviewed August 23, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The last thing my daughter said as we were leaving Philippas place was can we stay again. The cottage was a perfect place to come back to after you have had a busy day exploring. Philippa our host was so friendly and we felt very welcome. I took my two children 7 and 2 who loved feeding the pet sheep sometimes twice a day and quickly made friends with Philippas cat Tasha. The cottage is in a really beautiful setting and has everything and more then you need. We were sad to leave and will definitely be staying again.

“Amazing Retreat!”
Reviewed March 9, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

After a long journey up, we were greeted by the very friendly Phillipa. She happily showed us around the retreat and had made sure there was some delicious cake and tea ready. Fresh eggs from the local chickens were greatly appreciated for breakfast too. The cottage is even nicer than it looks in the pictures with everything you could possibly want provided; every piece of kitchen equipment we could think of, tv, dvds, wifi, decent shower. The fire was lovely to warm up to of an evening and the bedding was amazingly soft for a great sleep after a busy day. The leaflets in the boxes were a great help when deciding where to cycle/walk/explore and this spot was a great base, with just a short drive to everywhere we visited.

“Really lovely and peaceful place”
Reviewed April 8, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Me and my partner were looking for a relaxing few days away over a weekend for my birthday, we were looking for something not too far away but something a little different. We thought the pictures of the property looked nice and decided to book, we were very happy with the property when we arrived, while the pictures look nice actually when you see it in person its even better. The owners have done a great job on this property. The peak district itself has some lovely views, your able to go out in the day then come back to a nice place to relax and watch some tv or just read. We had a great time and im pretty sure we will come back in the future for another short break away.

“Wonderful relaxing away from it all break”
Reviewed February 15, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Just arrived back for our mid week break and have to say we are fully relaxed and switched off. The Retreat enabled us to 'get away from it all' in really great accommodation and surroundings. We spent valentines night at The Saracens Head which was a lovely treat. The hosts are wonderful and friendly and are to hand if you need them but leave you to relax also. We had everything we needed and the bed was so comfy our lie ins got later and later! Thank you Phillipa, Julian, Neil (the sheep), Archie (the very friendly cat) & co x
