We don't want to leave but fear we must to allow the next lucky guests to enjoy Jack's Cottage!
We have had a wonderful holiday! The cottage is beautiful: we love the original features but also the convenience of 21st century mod cons! It is a great base for exploring the local area . We will definitely be recommending the cottage to others and may well be back!
August 2021 We've had a wonderful time. Loved the cottage and cooked most of our meals in the well equipped kitchen.
July 2021 We've had a fabulous week. The cottage really is lovely indeed. The countryside around Longnor is some of the best in all the Peak District.

The cottage was spotless - and I mean spotless!! The Covid safe measures are the best I have seen, so huge thanks for that. Everything so comfortable - the sofa and bed, plus log fire - perfect.

"We absolutely loved our stay at Jack’s Cottage. It is such an amazing cottage full of character and located ideally in the centre of Longnor. The space was absolutely spotless, something which can’t be overlooked during these times & Mary was a conscientious, responsive and helpful host. Would recommend to anyone travelling to the Peak District as the perfect base."

We really appreciate the extra efforts you have gone to Mary, to make the cottage a Covid safe haven - thank you. We look forward to our next visit!"
August 2020 "Had a perfect 3 night stay at Jack’s cottage. The cottage was very cosy - had the homely/cottage feels; it was immaculately clean, well-equipped with all the modern appliances. Mary, the owner was fantastic in communication and making our stay very accommodating to our needs. She was very thoughtful and welcomed us with the little touches: chocolates, wine and a small bottle of milk - it was very much appreciated. Would definitely recommend a stay; perfect location and perfect for couples. Thank you again Mary for being a lovely host!"

“One of the most stylish yet subtle places we’ve stayed. V v clean and homely. It’s beauty is as gorgeous as it’s surroundings." "This cottage is wonderful in every way. I would highly recommend and we will be back."
December 2019 "Jack's cottage is quite simply a fantastic place for a rural retreat. It's in the heart of the quaint village of Longnor which is surrounded by stunning scenery, views and walks. The cottage itself has everything you could want and is beautifully presented."
"A relaxing country getaway in a lovely property, with great attention to detail and special touches that made our stay easy and enjoyable." “Jack’s cottage is a real rural retreat! There’s everything you need for a few days or more of rest and relaxation. The furniture is really tasteful and I felt really at home straight away. Very quiet and anyone met in the village, was chatty and kind.”
November 2019 "Our third stay at Jack's Cottage - what better review than that?!" "Came to escape the bustle of London to celebrate a birthday weekend. Absolutely perfect. We will be back."
October 2019 "This is our 5th stay here and we love it more each time. We will be back soon!" "Beautiful cottage in a stunning location."
September 2019 'This perfect hide away is nestled in the very pretty village of Longnor where we enjoyed breakfast in Jack’s garden (fresh provisions can be purchased only seconds away at Longnor General Store) cosy evenings curled up on the couch watching TV and we had great fun exploring the surrounding areas with little or no difficulty due to its central location. Having enjoyed a good long walk, or for that matter a good night's sleep what could be better than to treat yourself to invigorating shower...? Jack’s Cottage has it covered. And if being a god or goddess in the kitchen is not your thing, fear not as there are several rather good eateries within spitting distance of your front door. The fish & chip shop literally at the end of the street is not to be missed, diagonally across the market square you will find Cobbles Cafe for a terrific bacon butty or full English breakfast which will set up up for a days walking. Our only regret is that we didn’t feel that the weather cold enough to light up the fire, but then it’s a reason to return not that we need one. Until next time...'
August 2019 'Jack’s Cottage is everything you could wish for if you are looking for a peaceful place to stay in an unspoilt Peak District village. The cottage is quaint, cosy, characterful and welcoming. Mary has thought of everything; we had everything we needed and more - there was even a feeding bowl for our doggies! Plenty of eateries and amenities on the doorstep. Highlights of the Peaks only a short distance away. Don’t miss a stay in this wonderful cottage with its kind and friendly host !”
July 2019 'This was our second visit to Jack's Cottage, so I guess that says it all! We had a lovely stay and the cottage is as beautiful as ever. Many thanks for another lovely stay in the Peaks.'

April 2019 '4th time around and once again Jack's doesn't disappoint. Every time we come back Jack's provides us with a cosy place to allow us to explore even further into the Peaks. I'm sure we'll be back for the magical 5th visit later this year!'
'Our first time in the Peak District and it absolutely delivered on our hopes and expectations. Glorious and remarkable scenery, beautiful villages, fabulous pubs and energising walks. Jack's Cottage has been perfect for us and provided all that we needed. Hopefully we will be back this way again.'
'Mary’s cottage is a must for anyone wishing to visit the Peak District. The cottage is beautifully finished retaining many delightful original features. It is equipped with everything we needed for our weekend, even the fire had been set ready for us to light. Mary’s cottage is a lesson in how to be the perfect host. The village is a great base to explore some wonderful walks and savour the local brew. Will definitely visit again!'
