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, then virtually next door you will find Merchants House for some relaxed daytime or evening dining. 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 !”
