September 2020
We had a lovely week at Shortner Croft, the first holiday of the year not cancelled due to C-19.. We found a beautifully clean, light and comfortable holiday home equipped with everything you could possibly need. The new addition of the spacious fridge freezer will be especially useful for any future stays here. There are many beautiful walks from the door so we will certainly try to book again.

Shortner Croft is a beautiful property It was spotlessly clean, with lovely bedding and towels (all of high quality) The cottage was so well equipped with everything we needed, including hair dryer/straightners, iron, ironing board There is a great selection of books/dvd's/games We would definitely return to Shortner Croft and hope to do so in the Spring/Summer

Shortner Croft was a beautiful, large and clean cottage.. We were surprised at how large the accommodation was. Everything we needed in a self-catering cottage was available. We felt at home and were comfortable and warm. The area is full of places to explore and we made use of our time in the area. We had no problems with the unpaved road leading to the cottage, but there was not much rain. I imagine the road might cause problems after heavy rainfall. A larger sign at the junction of Drury Lane, for Shortner Croft Cottage would be a help. We did have some problems finding the cottage. I highly recommend this cottage and would return if coming to this area of England again. Thanks for sharing your cottage.

The cottage was beautifully finished very clean and comfortable it is in a very picturesque part of Derbyshire.. It is very central area for travelling to different venues in that area a perfect place for walking and site seeing. I would definitely recommend it and would go again. The only issue i have if any, is the lane up to the cottage although giving it a great deal of privacy is very rough and full off pot holes that when raining fills up substantially with water.

Shortner Croft is a little gem in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside, we are so pleased we found it.. This was our second visit to this cosy, well maintained cottage, and we hope to return. The cottage is exceptionally well equipped, everything you need has been provided, and a few extras you wouldn't usually find, hot water bottles and hair straighteners as well as a hairdryer! The bathroom has lovely toiletries provided, both for bath and shower, is very spacious, and, like the rest of the cottage, spotlessly clean. The owners, Glyn and Karen have listened to guests' comments, and where needed, provided what has been requested. Their local knowledge is a bonus, as are the walking and cycling books provided, together with lots of information on places to visit. The local pub The Waterloo is a typical old country pub, warm and welcoming, serving very tasty meals, good value too. In the nearby village of Hartington Beresfords Tea Rooms, and post office, serves delicious scones, breakfasts and lunches, and is the heart of the village, where everyone knows everyone! Tissington village is a pretty old village to wander round, Ashbourne a few miles away is a busy market town, lovely architecture, but very hilly! Several old railway lines, now cycle tracks are within easy reach, gentle walks amid glorious scenery, something for everyone.

It would be useful to make people aware of Porridge Lane being a poorly maintained track.. This only came to light the week before we were due to travel.
Mrs Horton

An excellent property,well equipped and furnished to a very high standard.. Situated conveniently, private yet not isolated. Located in a lovely area of Derbyshire with lots of walks locally and within a short driving distance. Interesting places to visit in the area too.

The key pad was not very easy to use - this was the only criticism of the cottage.. One of the best cottages!

My daughters gave my husband and I a week in Shortner Croft. We were very impressed with this self contained and very comfortable cottage. The owners really put a lot of thought into making it a “home from home” experience and provided many extra little things to make our stay comfortable ... We will definitely want to go back to this cottage again.

The only thing was you can only get ee on your mobile phone,which makes it hard if you are on another provider.. Otherwise couldnt fault it.

Very spacious and a nice big front garden, very private not overlooked. A marvellous bathroom/wet room with plenty of room, it was nice to have a choice of a shower or a relaxing bath. Wonderful and was very peaceful.
