“Fabulous pace to stay, well situated and accomodation was 1st class, absolutely worth a return visit”
Reviewed 9 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Little quiet village of Hollington, with a handy Pub 5mins walk serving good food, was great.
We visited the wonderful Chatsworth House, we found a lovely little tea room in Matclok Bath called

Hollington is a small friendly village just of the main route. The local pub, The Red Lion is only 5 minutes walk, and also serves good food. We visited the glorious Chatsworth House. Found a great little tea room called "The Clock Strikes 3" in Matlock Bath, recommend a visit. Bakewell was quaint especially for "Tart Lovers" ! Nearest town is Ashbourne, a lovely town with lots to see and some lovely shops and lots of eateries.
But by far the best thing about our trip was The Old Smithy itself, what a great place to come home to. Our host Philippa was welcoming, gracious and a very bubbly lady (& she greeted us with some home made cake and the means to make a cuppa before we unpacked, marvellous)
Well done Philippa work cottages are a credit to you.

“Excellent Place”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed here for about 7 days and loved it. The property was lovely perfect for what we wanted. The owners are very friendly and lovely people greeted us when ever we see them had a good chat. This is situated in a very good area you are able to get to everything within about 5 minute drive and about 30 Minutes to the peak.

I would highly recommend staying here with out a doubt.

“Excellent accommodation”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The Old Smithy is very well situated for getting to all parts of the Peak District. The accommodation is very comfortable and tastefully decorated and furnished. Everything that you might need whilst self catering is provided. The outside space is an ideal area to sit in the evenings and watch the resident sheep in an adjacent field. (Neil was my favourite!!). Philippa was very welcoming and left us a delicious cake! I hope to return to stay there as soon as I can.

“Gorgeous cottage! ”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

It can be stressful holidaying with children but Philippa & Julian are amazing hosts and put us at ease with their relaxed & friendly hospitality! We welcomed the delicious homemade cake. The boys loved feeding the sheep, choosing fresh eggs and walking Dave the dog (not sure who took who for a walk ☺️)!

The cottage is stunning! We loved the bath and resented sharing it with the boys! The super king size bed was amazing and the boys enjoyed having their own bathroom!!

We were not disappointed by the delicious pies at the local pub which is a leisurely stroll down the road. The children's menu was excellent! We also found a great pub called The Ketch in Kniveton near Ashbourne. Great service & fabulous food!

The boys enjoyed a rainy afternoon at Sticky Fingers in Ashbourne and loved being creative! They also have a huge selection of homemade cakes & a beautiful gift shop.

We spent a lot of our time at Alton Towers where is was a short 30 min journey from the cottage. We definitely recommend this stunning cottage! We loved being away in this beautiful setting - thank you Philippa & Julian x
