“An ideal location for exploring the Peak District”
Reviewed April 22, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We found the cottage very comfortable with everything we needed - except no maps (but we had one of our own). It was accessible enough for husband with some mobility issues, though shower was a bit tricky. Also, the shower temperature was quite a challenge to regulate. A great location for walks/runs, both off-road and on-road (up behind the cottage). We were not bothered in the least by the main road - indeed, it means it is easy to get to Buxton, Whaley Bridge and beyond.
Bellringing at Taxal church, Thursday evenings. Spectacular countryside within in a few minutes' drive and lots of cycle routes.

Thank you for your review. We will look at the shower temperature - no-one has mentioned this to us before, but thank you for your feedback on this and we will investigate! Glad that you enjoyed your stay, and we will also get a few maps too. Regards Sally and Dave

“Nice but with a big but”
Reviewed July 4, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Very nicely renovated, furnished and equipped with very friendly owners on site BUT just beyond the stone wall in the photo is the main A road between Whaley Bridge and Buxton. Busy for a lot of the day especially peak hours and weekends when the bikers are around. We feel that this should be clearly stated in the advertisements for the cottage.

We appreciate the comments about the barn furnishings/interior of the barn, which we spent a lot of effort on. In terms of the road, at the moment the local bypass (which redirects traffic from this road) is having some work done on it, which may have increased the traffic more than usual. Usually there is a traffic peak at work times (morning and evening), and it often quietens down during the day. We have had many people stay in the barn over the last 5 years and be very happy with it, including many repeat bookings. The walls to the barn itself are thick stone, it is fully double glazed throughout, and the bedroom is located to the rear of the cottage, which minimises traffic noise. An advantage of the location for any winter visitors is that you are unlikely to get snowed in, as the road is usually accessible even during any snow. Another advantage of the location during any time of year is the many walks available right from the doorstep, plunging you straight into the countryside without having to use the car - yet all local amenities are within a couple of miles - many consider this to be the best of both worlds. Ample, secure parking (in the grounds of the property, not on the road) is provided to all barn visitors. All prospective visitors are welcome to contact us for any further details or to look up the location on the internet. Of course we regret any that any guests are in any way dissatisfied. Few properties are 100% perfect, and in regards to advertising, it is usual to highlight the positives. We hope that prospective visitors will use this review, and our response, to choose what is right for them. Thank you Sally & Dave

“Lovely, modern accommodation.”
Reviewed August 14, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Had a brilliant stay here. Bed very comfy. Lots of space in all rooms. Very clean and tidy. The road did not bother us.....made it easily accessible from Buxton and Chapel. Enjoyed watching the world go by. Great space for our travel cot in bedroom. Would definitely return.

“Lovely & relaxing!”
Reviewed February 21, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

My husband and I stayed at Tollbarn in the new year. We went there to wind down from the Christmas festivities and it was great. It was relaxing, spacious and the log burner was such a bonus. It was easy to find, a a great location for visiting places such as Buxton and Bakewell.

I would recommend this place to anyone! Poppy (our little dog) loved it too! Many thanks, hope to return someday soon!

“A heavenly place to relax and rewind”
Reviewed June 4, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We discovered Toll Barn Cottage in spring 2010, when it had just opened for self catering a few weeks ago. On arrival we fell utterly and completely in love with it, having revisited every year since and stayed there for twelve weeks altogether up to now. It goes without saying that we intend to return to this wonderful retreat as soon as possible and that we can highly recommend it.

The cottage itself is spacious, very well equipped and comfortably and tastefully furnished having all the amenities one can wish for. It is a warm and cosy place no matter what's the weather thanks to the nice wood burner and electrical heating.

The area is a paradise for walkers with various walks right on your doorstep (e. g. to Fernilee and Errwood Reservoir, Errwood Hall, Cat and Fiddle Inn). Derbyshire and adjoining Cheshire are steeped in history with lots of interesting places to visit. If you love beautiful houses and gardens you will not be disappointed either. It is only a short drive to several railway trails (Monsal Trail, Tissington Trail) and canal tow paths (Peak Forest Canal, Macclesfield Canal) set in a scenic countryside suitable for either cycling or walking. There is such a lot to do around Fernilee that we still discover plenty of new places and things to do.

We would like to thank the owners Sally, Dave and little Dan Mellers, who have been always very helpful, kind and friendly and have done everything to´make us feel welcome and comfortable.

Liked best: Having a log burner, and a quick drive from glorious walking.
Liked least: The fact that I was made to replace an entire radiator (£139) after a mishap led to superficial markings being left on one, with seemingly no real attempt made by owner to remove them.

Please note that there is a dry stone wall and gate (and then a small lay by) separating the property from the road. The road is busy-ish at peak times, but does quieten down a bit during the day.

“Fabulous Getaway!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

My husband and I got married mid December and following a busy honeymoon and the hectic Christmas season we decided to get away for a relaxing New Years break.

Toll Barn Cottage lived up to all of our expectations; it is beautifully renovated, very roomy for 2, very clean and had all the amenities we required. We particulary enjoyed the log burner! We found the owners to be very friendly and helpful.

The area is absolutely beautiful and very atmospheric that time of year. There a lots of walks and stunning scenery. The cottage is a 5 minute walk form a local pub, wehere we popped for a drink and found them to be very friendly. Buxton is just a 10 minute drive away, very pretty and we visited the caves there. We spent New Years Eve at the Cock in Whaley Bridge where we had a delicious meal and were made to feel very welcome.

Overall we had a lovely relaxing time, thank you.
