We visited Dale Cottage in January this year (our second visit) for a well needed break after the hustle and bustle of Christmas and New Year. The cottage is in a great position, close to lovely walks in the countryside as well as villages such as Bakewell. The views are amazing especially from the bedroom window. The cottage itself is clean, warm (very important for January) and like a home from home, wih everything you need - the king size bed is so comfy! Everything you need in the village and pubs within walking distance, we had a lovely meal at The Farmyard. Can’t wait to go again!
There are few bad points ....
1) Kitchen spools and fridge very dirty (please have a look to attached foto).
2) very bad shower as the water can not handle two people to shower at the same time.
3) bad communication with the owner.
I am given 3 stars not 1 because the rest of the apartment was clean and nice...
It is a common sense to leave heater on at least at the time of arriving...
We stayed at Dale Cottage in May this year. It had everything we could want and a beautiful location...the village and nearby walks were lovely especially the walk to Milldale which was breathtaking and a nice cold pint at the end. we would definitely stay again and recommend to friends and family..a beautiful spot which lived up to my expectations .
Stayed at the cottage for a week and enjoyed a very relaxing time there. Excellent views out of the back with a table and chairs if the sun was out. Went on walks and days out with the dog and enjoyed watching a few DVDs with the open fire going in the evening. Weather was a bit changeable but that's British weather for you.
