“Beautiful cottage”
Reviewed 26 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have just returned from a weekend staying in this delightful cottage. It has been immaculately decorated and is comfortable and warm. The kitchen and bathroom have been beautifully modernised and everything has been thought of. On arrival there was a welcoming bottle of wine and some snacks which was a lovely touch.

There is a good pub in the village and the cottage is well situated for exploring the peak district. The large badger's sett across the road was an added bonus! All in all a very pleasant stay.

Thanks for your kind review, we do try our best to offer a comfortable cottage with all amenities. The fact the badgers put in a couple of appearances for you is also very good news! Both Liz and I hope you'll wish to return again, you'll always be welcome.

“Great cottage In a perfect location”
Reviewed 16 February 2016 for a stay in December 2015

The cottage was absolutely perfect for our family get together over Christmas in Derbyshire. The cottage was immaculately clean, spacious and was a real "home from home" for the 2 weeks we stayed over Christmas. It was the perfect base for us travelling from Texas, our (grown up) children coming from Sweden, London and Leicester. John & Liz were the perfect hosts, in even adding thoughtful christmas decorations to the cottage for our stay. It was wonderful. They even helped us prior to the stay, when we had messed up the booking; they're a truly lovely couple.

We're from Derbyshire originally, so we know the area, but that said Kniveton is a great little village on the edge of The Peak District, but near enough to Derby and Manchester. There's a couple of really good pubs - The Red Lion is about 75yds away and serves great food and even better beer!

We all loved the place and would happily stay again and recommend it to family and friends.

It was lovely to see you all John & Yvette, so pleased to hear that you and the family enjoyed your stay. It's a long way to come from Texas but it's good to know it was worth the effort! We do try our best to maintain the cottage to the highest possible standards so it's good to know we are succeeding. We'll hope you'll be able to return to us next time you visit England, Derbyshire is such a beautiful county. Thanks again and our very best wishes, John & Liz.

“The photographs don't do it justice - it's fantastic.”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My wife and I first came across an advert for this property in the RSPB Magazine, liked what we saw on the website and sent off an email to John requesting dates in September. He responded within an hour. He and his wife live next door and nothing is too much trouble to them. As you would expect, the place was spotless, both the kitchen and bathroom have recently been modernised, and all the rooms are tastefully decorated. Upper Bank House is ideally placed for exploring the Peak District. Chatsworth House is within 20 miles, Carsington Water (about 3 miles away) is a Severn Trent reservoir with leisure facilities, sailing, cycling, walking/running, 3 hides for bird watching – to name but a few. Ilam Park and Dovedale NT sites are less than 10 miles. Would we go again, yes we would – there is so much more to see and do, one week just wasn’t long enough.
