Cottage is lovely and highly recommended. The only downside is the main road (A628) which can get busy at peak times. Otherwise perfect. Walks from the door step and the local Langsett reservoir is a lovely 2 hour walk with the Wagon and Horses public house waiting for you for a beautiful lunch. Had a wonderful time.

Great place to stay, clean and tidy. About 45 mins away from most attractions with the bonus of breathtaking views on the way.

Brilliant place to stay! The bedrooms were all huge and the bathrooms have a really high quality finish. The living area/kitchen again was very spacious. Views across the fields were great. We took 2 cars but definitely could have fit more in. Kitchen was well equipped. The owners were very helpful and welcoming. Loved the outside BBQ area and gardRead moreen. Hide

The cottage was lovely, it was clean and comfortable for a party of 6. The location was good and the garden was just what we needed for 2 boys who played out most evenings.

Had a brilliant holiday at School Wells. Accommodation was very spacious for the five of us and Penistone is only a 5 minute drive away for the nearest shops. Plenty of places can be visited within a half an hour drive. Owners were very welcoming and they gave us lots of recommendations of places to visit and to eat out. Will definitely go back to Read moreexplore more places in the Peak District. Hide

I took my elderly parents and grandson of 18 months. We had not been together for 4 months after lock down. This was ideal for us as no steps once inside and the cottage is so cosy and warm. A lovely large kitchen table where we done most of our socialising talking and laughing playing games of cards. The owners Simon and his wife are so lovely.
