'Lovely holiday. Sun shone the whole week. Cottage perfect. Views and scenery in the surrounding countryside stupendous. Will be back for more'. Mary and Sandy Kelman
' ... just a quickie to say thanks for everything last week, it was a good break for us (despite the weather!) and the Old Byre was very comfortable. And thanks for fitting us in with the days we wanted. We'll recommend your cottages of course and maybe we might even come your way again!' Allan and Wendy Mason
'...we were affected by the closures on the M5... Nevertheless it has not dulled the memory of a lovely time spent in the Peaks and we very much look forward to returning again'. Liz and Derek Allen
