The kitchen is very well equipped and we enjoyed cooking our evening meals and eating al fresco. The small village provides for immediate necessities and there is a large Aldi just a few minutes away. There are lots of places to visit in the surrounding area. Highly recommend the property. Owners brilliant at communication."

bullet01.gif The cottage is really lovely, amazing settings and views.  Very homely and welcoming.  The village is really nice with a couple of pubs within a few min walk, serving lovely food.  Lots to do within a short distance of the beautiful cottage.  Will definitely be returning.  Highly recommend.

bullet01.gif We had a great weekend and the cottage was perfect.  Beautifully maintained and decorated with every home comfort.  A bottle of wine and cake were put out to welcome us and we loved the garden as well which was full of spring flowers, ducks and the occasional chicken.  The worst part of the weekend was leaving.......

bullet01.gif Myself and 4 friends stayed in Rookery Cottage on the weekend of 27th-30th March 2015.  It was amazing and I cannot fault it at all.  Wonderfully equipped, great location with incredible views, very thoughtful owners leaving us some goodies and essentials.  I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough, having stayed in many cottages throughout the UK.  Many thanks indeed.

bullet01.gif "Hi, just a quick email to say how much we enjoyed our long weekend at Rookery Cottage.  It is a very comfortable cottage with a well equipped kitchen that we made good use of.  We especially enjoyed the lovely garden as we had perfect weather for sitting outside.  Thank you.  Abby and Stu."

bullet01.gif "We have all so enjoyed another stay in this idyllic cottage - such a perfect picture-postcard location.  Sitting on the patio in glorious sunshine, sipping our wine with the river tumbling by is a very hard act to follow!  We were all very sad to say goodbye,  but will certainly return one day.

bullet01.gif "We loved the cottage - beautiful inside and out, what an amazing property and such a stunning view. As we were coming to Derbyshire we watched again the BBC's Pride and Prejudice and went to Lyme Park to see Pemberley! Very much enjoyed walking around the grounds of Lyme Park, one of the National park properties we have been to."

bullet01.gif "We all certainly enjoyed our stay.  Cottage was very warming (especially with the log fire on) and the owners are superb hosts.  The wine presented was delicious and the cake even more so!. Ashford is so pleasant, we have been looking around to find a property for sale!"
 
bullet01.gif "Beautiful cottage and setting.  Well equipped throughout.  Log fire was wonderful on cold evenings.  The internet facility was a bonus and the sponge cake was a lovely touch. "
 
bullet01.gif "Really enjoyed joining my parents for a weekend in your wonderful cottage.  Comfortable and cosy inspite of the sudden winter weather.  Had a fabulous walk and was very inspired by the landscape for some new paintings.   Wish we could have stayed longer and hope to return."

bullet01.gif "Although it has all been said before, let me echo the delight of coming to such a homely cottage  and to be left a wonderful cake and wine.  Hopefully we shall return."

bullet01.gif "Great cottage in wonderful setting.  Enjoyed cycling the Monsal trail and walking around Cheedale, Cressbrook and Hartington.  The children had fun playing on the swing."
