It was a lovely cottage in a great location. It was well equipped and comfortable to stay in - we would happily go back.

A beautiful cosy cottage in Taddington. Very stylish and well appointed. High quality appliances and superb kitchen facilities.

1 The Retreat is a beautiful cottage set in an idyllic village location. It has the wonderful feel of a Parisian emporium whilst retaining the traditional cottage/village feel.

Beautiful and quirky property in a lovely location. Ideal location for Bakewell, Buxton and Matlock Bath, which are all lovely places. We took a dog and the only drawback is that there is no back garden. We could not let our dog out. However, there is a churchyard with grounds opposite the property.

We didn't want to leave. It was absolutely fantastic and anything that wasn't perfect was made up by everything that was!

A beautiful cottage in a quiet village in a perfect setting. Taddington is a lovely little village - only one pub and no shop but who needs that when you have footpaths in all directions heading straight out on to gorgeous, unspoilt countryside. Very well equipped cottage (even hair straighteners!) and very responsive host. Beautifully decorated.
