Very nice holiday cottage
We enjoyed our stay in this comfortable cottage. It is located in a beautiful green valley in the tiny village of Atlow. The cottage has everything you need and has good beds in the below bedrooms.
It is a good base to explore the Peak District !!!
Nice position but the owner is not maintaining systems and equipment!
The property is in a very good position, very quiet and peaceful. But the television is old and only has one scart connection, and the last customer was clearly very upset and left the DVD connected directly to the digi box, and the TV connected to nothing, and it took me an hour to rectify the situation. the owner was absent. You have to swap scart leads from the digi box to the DVD player if you want to use the DVD player. The owner left no instructions in the property guide. Then the internet went out for over 12 hours several times, and the wi fi extender is in a locked utility room and not accessible to customers and we had to wait till the system reset itself. The owner blames BT, but its the owners fault for using an extender, that cant be re set by customers. These WIFI extenders and known to drop out all the time. If they are accessible they can be easily reset. The property is in a valley and there is no mobile signal, so with no internet the "call by wifi" did not work, so we were left with no communications, many times. The oven thermostat has failed and we had several ruined meals. The cold water has an air lock and knocked loudly when you try and run water from the sink tap! The towels were like scratchy cardboard and if they used a dryer to dry the towels they would be much softer. The heating thermostat is upstairs in the kitchen and as this is the hottest place in the property everywhere else is cold. The thermostat should be downstairs then the bedrooms might we warm!! Evan though we advised the owner as soon as we knew, she did nothing to rectify anything and we left a day early.
We are grateful to Mr Moyes for his constructive comments as a result of which we have made some improvements to the cottage. We are also sorry that he didn’t enjoy his stay like all the other guests that have left four and five star reviews. This is the first negative review we have ever had of the cottage and have taken all the comments very seriously.
We are not sure how Mr Moyes knew that the previous holidaymakers were upset about the T.V because it was a brand new DVD player purchased a month ago and a new TV has just been installed.
The internet usually works fine as stated in an earlier review and we have just been informed that Superfast Broadband is now available and our provider is making sure we get the best possible service. We don’t understand Mr Moyes’ comment about the internet extender being in a locked utility room, so he couldn’t reset it, because it is in fact in the adjoining utility room that is always unlocked.
We have had a plumber check the cold water supply and he couldn't find anything wrong and more recent guests have said that it is fine. However the plumber has installed a ‘mini rester’ to control temporary fluctuations in mains pressure just in case that was what was causing the problem.
We are grateful to Mr Moyes for alerting us to the problem with the oven thermostat which we didn’t know about and it has now been replaced. We always try to dry the towels outside, weather permitting, because they are fresher than having been in a tumble dryer and it is our way of doing little things to try to help save the planet.
Finally, the main heating thermostat in the kitchen controls all the heating throughout the cottage and is in the holidaymakers’ total control but there are also individual thermostats on all the radiators so this gives total flexibility to set the heating for each of the rooms.
Very well maintained cosy cottage in great location and friendly owners!
We (family of 4, 2 children 8&10) thought the cottage was very cosy and well maintained and in a great location to venture out to various National Trust and English Heritage properties as well as having Ashbourne on your doorstep for shopping and eating and the Peak District for walking. The owners were very friendly and WiFi in the cottage is excellent.
The upside down house was also handy as it was rather hot when we stayed and the bedrooms were nice and cool.
A great stay!
Friendly helpful owners. Very clean and spacious.
Although our weather wasn't great we still managed to get out. This cottage is in a lovely peaceful area all that can be heard are the birds. Lovely.
Thank you Shirley for your lovely comments.
Deze rustige kleine vallei is een perfecte uitvalsbasis voor tal van wandelingen door het prachtige landschap. Wandel over de velden naar de pub in Hognaston of stap even verder uit om Carsington Water te ontdekken met zijn bezoekerscentrum en watersporten. Als u een fiets huurt, dan is het slechts een korte pedaal naar de verborgen parel van een historisch stadje, Wirksworth, met het beroemde restaurant Le Mistral.
Een bezoek aan het nabijgelegen stadje Ashbourne met zijn Georgische terrassen, rijkdom aan eten, antiek- en modewinkels is een andere must. Bakewell, Chatsworth en Haddon Hall zijn niet veel verder weg. Van alle andere attracties van Derbyshire, hoe zit het met het National Tramway Museum, de stoomtreinen van Peak Rail, de Blue John-grotten van Castleton of zelfs de nabijgelegen Alton-torens?
