Just the parking issues.. Almost holding your breath to reverse back and to come in and out the property. Lovely neighbours, we unfortunately scratched one of the neighbours car and this was very slowly reversing back to the lane. They've agreed for us to mend it and we offered a bottle of wine to say thank.you. Otherwise, very nice and comfortable stay.

We had a wonderful stay at Lucky Cottage, it is a rural location in Foxt which has a lovely pub but there is plenty to do in driving distance for the week. Furnished to a very high standard I recommend Lucky Cottage for a treat get away.

This is the 2nd time we have visited Lucky Cottage and it was as comfortable as the first.. The cottage was warm and cosy and a lovely touch was cake on arrival. Stunning location with beautiful views and so close to Derbyshire which is our happy place. Looking forward to our next visit

It was the cleanest and best equipped cottage that we have ever stayed in, obviously a lot of thought and care has gone into this cottage..

This was our third visit to Lucky cottage.. When you step inside this lovely cottage, you feel instantly relaxed and comfortable. We had a lot of rain the week we were there and it was a warm and cosy haven to return to. Beautifully decorated, gorgeously comfortable beds and lots of lovely touches, including freshly made scones on arrival!

Needed a quiet bolt-hole for a few days away. This place looked good on the website, but the pictures do not do it justice. The cottage is finished to the highest standards with some excellent, quirky items mixed with high end kitchen and technology items. After staying in a few cottages over the years, this is without doubt one of the best. Comfortable surroundings and furnishings coupled with a great location make for a relaxing few days away. The shepherd hut at the end of the garden makes a great place to sit a have a glass or two of something nice.

After traveling 7 hours in a small suv on arrival I was disappointed in the access to cottage via a steep hill and narrow access to parking with very restrictive turning the cottage was well equipped but lacked basic necessities as it would have been nice to have a pint of milk in the fridge to go with the selections of teas and coffee also we had no hot water messaged and rang the owner several times but she did not reply till the following morning after having to go next door to her mothers where she was staying we had planned to attend events on most days during the week the first morning we were going to Ashbourne show so we were delayed The rest of the holiday was great

Lovely cottage, well looked after and maintained, very nice scones left for arrival, milk in the fridge, flowers on the table.. A peaceful and restful location. Holiday cottage amount regular residents, could not get the car near to the property and a very steep hill to the top road. Otherwise excellent. Would return.

We have had an unforgettable stay at Lucky Cottage and would have liked to stay longer.. Great place, very good bed, towels and bed linens, love interior and what a fabulous kitchen with everything we needed. Will definitely come again! We felt more than welcome with the fresh flowers and freshly baked scones with clotted cream and jam on arrival. Pity that the weather was too bad to enjoy the lovely garden...

The cottage was a delight.. Tasteful, chic, classy and very relaxing. A great get-away and will be our first choice bolt hole from now on. Great location, great facilities and a little gem.

Truly wonderful cottage.. Enjoyed our Christmas break. Cottage is lovely and warm with lots of touches of luxury...beautifully decorated, White Company bedding - bliss, vintage crockery, range cooker and log burner. The owner even made sure there was a suitable roasting tin and foil for the turkey. The only negative is the parking which is tricky - but we managed fine in an SUV.

This was the perfect cottage for a Christmas getaway.. It was beautifully warm and tastefully decorated for the season. There are lovely views and plenty of walks to be had in the surrounding countryside.

What a fabulous weekend we had at "Lucky Cottage"! . Four friends meeting up for some chill out time together. Beautiful location. Plenty of walks locally and short drive away. High standard of accommodation with a very homely, comforting feeling to it. Please note parking was a bit tricky but did not spoil our experience. We were lucky indeed to spend time there.

Superb cottage, perfect for those who enjoy walking and alton towers.. Plenty to do with in good driving distances. Excellent value for money.

This cottage is really delightful! The only comment I would make is that yes, there is a parking space but the parking can be a bit tricky if there are cars at every house.

The views from the lounge, bedroom and garden were spectacular and the furnishings in the cottage were interesting and quirky! It was very peaceful both at the cottage and Foxt generally as a village. Overall, a lovely place.

The cottage was gorgeous! So beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. The beds were so comfortable and the house was really cosy and warm. We loved cooking together in the large, well-equipped kitchen. The owner was a pleasure to deal with. I'm sure we will book again.

Came here on holiday for a week with my husband and daughter, Beautifully decorated throughout with attention to detail. Everything was of a very high standard, all furnishings are very thoughtfully placed. The patio is lovely but the garden does need attention but it was only March when I was here. The parking is very tight so if you have a larger vehicle then it would be awkward to say the least not a problem for us though. We really enjoyed our stay, very quiet and peaceful. The views from the back of the property are outstanding looking out uninterrupted into the valley, The kitchen and bathroom are particularly lovely, and the bedrooms especially luxurious. Great retro design throughout. Lovely break, no problems what so ever. Would definitely stay again.

It was perfectly placed for walking and had a good pub within walking distance.. It was wonderful to be in the countryside but also warm and comfortable. The cottage is beautifully decorated in Victorian style. Although we went in the winter it would be just as nice in the summer as the garden has lovely views over the valley where you could sit and enjoy a glass of something.

We loved every part of the cottage! So spacious yet so cosy, and nicely decorated throughout! The kitchen was well equipped and a really good size as most kitchens are quite small in other places. The living area was nicely decorated and had a blu-ray player! The bedrooms were beautiful! The beds were so comfortable and the views (and horses) were a wonderful sight to open the curtains to in the morning! A wonderful place to stay and definitely would love to stay again!

We have stayed at many of your cottages, and whilst all of them have been very good, Lucky Cottage surpassed them all. Exceptional, excellent quality throughout, the beds were a dream. Such a great deal of thought had gone into making the cottage a perfect holiday home, none of us wanted to leave! On top of that we had lovely weather and managed 3 sunny but rather muddy walks.

Decorated to a very high standard, with great attention to detail, particularly loved all the antique accessories. Pleasure to cook in the beautiful kitchen. The bed and bedding were amazing, I normally look forward to getting back to my own bed after a holiday, but not the case here!

A lovely cottage in a great location and very peaceful. The description of off road parking is slightly misleading as it is a lane shared by all the other properties leaving little room for turning. Despite a problem with the fridge/freezer the owners mother was quick to help.
