From our Guests

We receive excellent feedback from our guests here at Tub Cottage.  Here is a selection of comments from our guest book:

Many thanks for your lovely welcome Leonie, we appreciated you taking the time out to say hello.  We’ve had the most wonderful stay in your beautiful cottage.  It was toasty and warm and comfy to make up for the inclement weather outside!  A visit to Chatsworth Christmas Market, House and Gardens, have us in the festive spirit now!   E and P  November 2023

We had a fantastic time!  The cottage had everything we needed to make it a comfortable stay – we loved staying here!  The surrounding area is amazing and the food and atmosphere at the Red Lion pub in the village was excellent.  We arrived during Storm Babet and Leonie and Eric were amazing and even rescued one of us from the Hope Railway Station!   A wonderful stay which we will recommend to our friends.  L, H and L    October 2023

We have had a great stay at Tub Cottage which has been part of a 5 week trip from Australia to the UK.  We have loved every minute!  We knew that Tub Cottage was an outstanding cottage from the website and it certainly exceeded our expectations.  It has everything you could possibly need.  We loved Leonie’s welcome and all her practical tips for Australians staying in an English village!  We thank you for making Tub Cottage such a great base for us and we take home lovely memories of village life which is completely different for us and extremely refreshing.  M and S  September 2023

Another pleasant week here in Litton and we can only add to the litany of praise for the cottage which is so well equipped and extremely comfortable.  As with other guests, we recommend the tasty cakes available from the cheerful ladies at the village shop!  The second hand bookshop in Tideswell is well worth a visit as long as there’s space in your rucksack for your purchases!  P&A  September 2023

We’ve had a lovely holiday in Tub Cottage.  The cottage is supplied with everything you could need.  The beds are comfortable and in the peaceful surroundings we all slept so well.  Our 15 year old was so happy with the good WiFi and a TV in her room too!!  The village shop is a delight and had anything we had forgotten or ran out of. We will return soon.  The R family   August 2023

We have had a wonderful time at your lovely cottage – thank you for making us feel very welcome.  We have really appreciated the thoughtfulness that has gone into making this cottage a very special place to stay.    Our very tired dog also welcomed the doggy treats!  The R Family  July 2023

Thank you for a lovely, easy to organise and beautiful cottage.  It has honestly been perfect!  We’ve stayed in many different places, but this has been the best.  It’s so lovely and well-stocked.  It was extra nice to meet you on arrival and added a friendlier feel to the stay.  We couldn’t find fault with this place or its hosts!  We will recommend to anyone calling this way. Thanks again for all your help and for the beautiful place to stay.  N, C, K and J  June 2023

Another glorious week at Tub Cottage.  The weather has been fabulous.  This is our 4th visit here and it definitely is our home from home now.  Leonie Eric and May keep this place so lovely and make you feel so welcome.  We will be back soon.  L,R and S (border collie)!  June 2023

What a fabulous cottage!  Beautifully presented and in an ideal spot to explore the Derbyshire Dales.  The cottage has every mod con, and we particularly loved the gas stove – one click and we had a lovely fire.  The Red Lion provided hearty meals after a long walk and the village shop had all the necessities.  We shall certainly return.  W,S&S  November 2022

This was our first time in the Peak District and we feel lucky to have chosen Tub Cottage.  We think the cottage is fabulous and exceptionally clean.  A huge thanks for the welcome goodies, especially the wine, which was quite delightful.  Location superb, easy access to cycle trails, fantastic walks and scenery.  The Red Lion didn’t disappoint – great food.  S&S  September 2022

This was our second visit to Tub Cottage and we enjoyed it just as much as we did on our first visit. We dined at the Red Lion on several nights and enjoyed the atmosphere of a country pub.  We also found ourselves having a spot of lunch at The Cowshed, Millers Dale, which opened recently.  Lovely to see Leonie again and thanks for visiting to make sure that we were nicely settled in.  J,V,P & A   July 2022

It was delightful to return to Tub Cottage after 7 years.  Now that the children are older, we were able to enjoy the lovely Red Lion, short walks along the Monsal Trail, Tideswell Dale and Millers Dale.  The livestock auction at Bakewell was a fun excursion on Monday and the Arc Leisure Centre in Matlock was good for a rainy day swim.  He have had a lovely, relaxing and cosy stay at this gorgeous cottage, fully equipped with everything you could possibly need.  We greatly appreciated the welcome tray after a long journey up from the South East – if only we had the same on arriving back home!  J,S,P&A  February 2022

We finally made it back after missing a couple of years due to Covid and Tub Cottage is still our number one destination.  As always, a lovely greeting from Leonie with a tray laden with lovely goodies.  The weather has been stunning with bright blue skies and then we were blessed with snow!  Just magical!  Can’t wait to come back in July and introduce our grandchildren to Tub Cottage.  G, G & B January 2022
