“Lovely cottage, great cake!”
Reviewed 4 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

A lovely cute cottage for our 2 night break during half term. Great communication from the owner. Fabulous chocolate cake baked for us. Very clean, well maintained property. Lots of info for days out. Really focused on what a holiday maker may need. We had our 3 month old baby and the stairs were challenging but doable with care. Bring your own travel cot as there is not one there.

Thank you so much for the review, I'm pleased that you found it cute, we think it is too! Rather than let it out for 4 people we advertise it as a 2 person cottage which gives the luxury of space but with lots of character. We hope that you will return to stay at Christmas cottage soon.

“Stylish, country cottage”
Reviewed 4 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Stayed here for a long weekend this summer, sat outside with a glass of wine most evenings and watched the world go by. V nice village with friendly local pub (dog friendly!) and it also has a nice beer garden. The cottage is nicely decorated with lots of equipment and good quality furnishings. Great location for nice walks and visits to local attractions. Walked around Carsington Water and through Dovedale. Very pretty.

“Great location”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Stayed here for three nights on a mini break to the Peak District with my wife. Initially we chose this cottage for its location and the fact that it allows pets meant that we could take our cocker spaniel with us. The owner left us a welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk, sugar, biscuits, cake and wine! It is a charming cottage and just right for our requirements. Spotlessly clean with bathrobes supplied too. As an added bonus it is just two doors away from the local pub which serves good food. As per the description, it is laid out over three floors and you do need to be reasonably fit to climb the very steep stairs! Would definitely return here. My tip for this property is that if you hang out of the top bathroom window you can connect to the free Wifi in the pub two doors down!

Thank you for submitting a review of your stay in Christmas Cottage, it is much appreciated. We also feel that it's location is one of the best things about the cottage, and obviously close proximity to the pub definitely helps! Good news on the Wi-fi front - it's on it's way! Thanks.

“Fabulous location, spotlessly clean and comfortable with nice added touches.”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Loved the convenient location close to Ashbourne but in a quiet and pretty village of Clifton. We really appreciated the added extras after a 30 hour door to door commute from Sydney. We did not drop into a shop on the way and Charlotte had baked a beautiful cake that, along with the well stocked tea tray was a most welcoming surprise. The decor and quality of everything in the cottage was great and Charlotte's notes made it so easy to settle into our temporary home. The only bad point about our stay was leaving. Derbyshire is now our favourite area in the UK and we hope to return to Christmas Cottage to enjoy more.

“Home from home cottage in a peaceful village location.”
Reviewed 25 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Christmas Cottage and Clifton provived more than expected. Cottage was great and well equiped. Lovely,warm and cosey. The Cock Inn was welcoming and the Speedy Shopper(look it up!) meant we were never without. Ashbourne was only a 15 minute walk away as well as lovely walks from the doorstop meant the car was never used. Well worth a visit if you are intending a quiet get a way or a base to explore the Peak District.
