Hi, I'm delighted you are interested in coming to Candlelight Cottage. One of the best things about being a host is meeting lots of interesting guests from all over the world. Simon and I love travelling ourselves and know how important it is to find really good accommodation, because it can make or break the holiday.
Before setting up our cottage, we thought abut all the things we like to find in a holiday rental when we travel and just as importantly, all the things we would definitely NOT want to find! Our own standards are exacting, so, when you come to Candlelight Cottage, you can be sure that it will be spotlessly clean, that you will find guide books, maps and folders of things to do in the area. Everything is provided and there are no hidden extras. A generous welcome pack of local products will be waiting for you and we will be there when you arrive to greet you, show you around the cottage and answer any questions you may have.
It is very important to us that you feel at home here and we have equipped the cottage to include everything we could think of to make sure you are comfortable and relaxed.
We've just joined Airbnb, but you'll find over 50 5 star reviews of the cottage on a certain well known review website! Unlike many cottages, we are part of the UK Quality in Tourism scheme. This means that every year we are independently assessed by the English Tourist Board, so when we say we are 5 star GOLD, it is an official third party grading and you can rest assured that everything about our cottage continues to meet the very highest standards.
If you love the outdoors as we do, the Peak District is a great place to visit. We are into walking and cycling, but are interested in history too and enjoy visiting the many spectacular country houses, churches and industrial heritage sites in the area.
We've made this beautiful area of the country our home and we love sharing our local knowledge with guests - everything from off the beaten track things to do, to the best tea rooms or fish and chip shops in the area!
We're always available to help should you need us and hope to welcome you to Candlelight Cottage soon.
