“Lovely cosy cottage. Very homely.”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed here over the august bank holiday and must say its a lovely quaint cosy place and felt really homely.
The location is ideal and central to all the popular areas such as dovedale and matlock and thors cave.
There is a general store next door and a newsagents and a pub over the road.

After a long day walking it was nice to come back and sit down and relax with one of the many board games that are left there. Or browse through a large collection of books and dvds.

I will definately recommended this cottage to friends and family.

“Nice cottage, good location”
Reviewed 5 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

As a base of operations for a couple of nights in the peak district Meri Cottage fit the bill. The pub across the road does great food and the staff were very friendly. The village shop is right next door and so getting in essential supplies was easy. Amenities in the house were good, the beds were comfortable, and the terrace garden was a nice place to relax after a day of exploring the area.
There was an unfortunate situation that on arrival the house was not ready for guests, which after 4 hours of travelling was not really what we wanted. We arrived a good 3 hours after check-in time too, but we took ourselves away from the situation for another couple of hours and it was soon resolved.
I'm sure this is just a blip but it did give a bad first impression. The owners were very apologetic and a discount for a future stay was offered, but if you're the sort of person who doesn't stay in the same place twice then this wasn't really much of a compensation.

“Cosy, character cottage in delightful village”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Meri Cottage is cosy, comfortable and extremely well-equipped and exceeded our expectations. Hartington is the perfect base from which to explore the southern Peak District, with many walks possible directly from the village. The Devonshire Arms served delicious meals, the Village Stores sold freshly baked pies and bread and the Cheese Shop provided an excellent range of local cheeses.

“Excellent cottage, ideal getaway location”
Reviewed 25 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The cottage was excellent all round. The kitchen had everything you could ever need, bedrooms are all spacious and beds comfortable. The lounge also has plenty of room for dining or lounging in front of the tv. Hartington is a lovely little village, we found it the perfect weekend getaway. Thanks
