"Our fifth visit to this lovely warm and comfortable cottage…we managed our favourite walk along Lathkill and up to the pub at Over Haddon. Also visits to Bakewell, Matlock and Chatsworth. A highlight for the children was hiring bikes to do the Monsal Trail. Spectacular views…and great tunnels. I hope we will be back. Still not managed to spot a kingfisher."
