This was our second stay and as good as the first. The cottage is very cosy and the views are just wonderful - eating breakfast and looking down to the river is magical.

“Just perfect”
Reviewed 3 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Just come home from Overdale Cottage and want to go back again! If you're after a relaxing few days interspersed with fabulous views, amazing scenery, and friendly villagers look no further! We found it! It normally takes me a couple of days to feel comfortable when away from home (as my husband will confirm!) - not here though. Felt instantly at home and relaxed in this delightful cottage. The walk down to the cottage was fun - good for the thighs :) - and beautiful views from the cottage down the valley. Great local walks and a visit (or several) to the Farmyard Inn is a must - fab friendly staff who greeted us like locals. We will definitely be going back here and taking our bikes - saw several bike trail areas. Took our dog Bailey this time and we had no problems taking him with us as dogs seem to be welcomed everywhere (including the cable car up to the Heights of Abraham in Matlock Bath). Great location for visiting many of the sights of the Peak District.

“A lovely, warm and inviting cottage. Excellent location.”
Reviewed 20 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We had a fabulous, restful break. The cottage is ideally located and we were able to go on several walks straight from the cottage - it was great not to have to use the car . We enjoyed lunch at the Lathkil Hotel and next time will try the delicious looking pies. We ate in a couple of nights and the cottage was very well equipped. It was very warm and cosy on one of the coldest nights of the year. We would also recommend the Farmyard Inn and we went to the Bull's Head which has recently opened. On both occasions the food was excellent. We hope to return in the summer when we could enjoy a glass of wine on the terrace and the lovely views of the river.

We arrived at the cottage around 3 o'clock with our 2 dogs, we unpacked and went straight out for a walk, as we left the cottage we continued down the hill to the river if you like walking you will love it, it was so peaceful.
We then strolled back up the hill to the village to the Gardeners arms for a meal and refreshments the staff and locals were so pleasant and friendly and dogs are welcome too.
Even though it was January and rained quite a lot we had a great time.
Just put your waterproofs on and and enjoy the outdoors.

“Location location location (boring but true!)”
Reviewed 2 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

What a beautiful spot and a beautiful little cottage. For a 1 bedroom place the living area and kitchen was larger than expected so very pleased as we love to cook. Very clean and comfortable. From your living room window you look down to the Lathkill Valley which was spotted immediately by our spaniel on arrival. We did a fantastic walk to Monyash (14 miles return for us, x 4 for the dog) on the first day and returned to a warm welcome at the Farmyard Inn for dinner, just two minutes walk from the cottage. Do book if you're going though as it fills up very quickly. The Bull's Head another 2 minutes up the road shouldn't be missed for a pint or two. We will return.

“Fantastic Cosy Cottage”

We stayed at the lovely cottage for a long weekend and had a fabulous time. The cottage has everything you need for a perfect getaway. The owners were kind enough to allow us to take our 2 well behaved dogs, which was a bonus. The location is perfect for walks, straight from the door so no need to drive. We ate out at the Farmyard Inn a couple of nights - lovely country pub only a few minutes walk away.. We cannot recommend the cottage and its location highly enough and we will definitely return!!
