I've been to lots of RR properties - this is the best! Beautiful, well equipped and with some unexpected luxuries. Set in lovely countryside and lots of places to visit nearby and great walks too. S said it was our little love nest!! Well, it must have worked it's magic - he proposed! Thanks Roz - we'll be back - on a honeymoon maybe ....

Thank you very much for a perfect stay at Sparrows Roost! Such a cosy, comfortable cottage with no detail overlooked - even the bath towels smell divine! How wonderful to wake up to the sound of sheep instead of the noise of city traffic! Hope to stay again in the future.

The cottage is just perfect! Thank you so much for everything Roz and Rob, you have made us feel so welcome and we really couldn't ask for more. The detailed walks are fab! Thor and Pepper loved them all. Special thanks to Starsky for putting up with the 'terrible two'!

Thank you for an amazing stay! The cottage is stunning. Oscar enjoyed meeting the horses and watching the cows go past! We had two great walks and enjoyed relaxing in the evening. We tried to stay an extra night, but it's just too popular! Thanks again, we will be back.

We love Sparrows Roost! Had a lovely relaxing week. A good walk with a pub stop is No.19 in the Peak District Walks book. A bit of a drive, but the Duncombe Arms in Ellastone does a very good roast!

Have had a wonderful relaxing time, but with plenty of dog friendly walks. The cottage is fabulous and catered for all our needs and more, you have thought of everything, home from home. Loved the welcome pack, thank you so much. Very thoughtful. We all loved it and would love to come back. Have thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to this part of the world.

We have had a relaxing time here even if the weather was a bit dreary! The cottage has lots of little luxurious touches from the Nespresso (and generous pods provided) to the delicious eggs. We recommend The Tramway Crich (the park is excellent) and the Blue John Cavern (surprisingly dog friendly). Buxton is well worth a visit - we found a few dog friendly pubs. Oh! and ladies, the Derby factory shop is great! I did stock up!

Stunning cottage in a beautiful location. The walks here are amazing and just what we needed to unwind after a manic Christmas. The cottage is simply beautiful and it felt like we were in a five star hotel. Welcome hamper was fabulous and the finishing touches are A*. Roz, thank you for all you did for us, so kind. You are one perfect host. Couldn't speak more highly of the cottage and the hosts. PERFECT. Thank you, we will be back.

Fabulous little cottage!!! Lovely welcome hamper and all needs considered and catered for. Beautiful setting in the country, surrounded by animals and perfect base. Recommend both the Bear and the Malt Shovel for good food. Plenty lovely places to go, or just stay here and walk miles locally. We will be back again! P & K, Kent
