The following comments are taken straight from the guestbooks we keep. Verbatim.
Great stay. Great location next to Carsington Reservoir (1m drive away). The place was very very clean. Plenty of towels, kitchenware etc. and space for everyone. Communication with the host was great. I was really pleased that the pool was still open and they’ve put a good system in place for use.
We stayed as a family of 5, and loved it so much we stayed an extra night! All just very easy with self check-in, fantastic layout, comfy beds, good shower and heating. We all really enjoyed using the swimming pool, table tennis and children's play park. All felt very safe. 10 min walk to Carsington visitor's centre. Would really like to return.
Beautiful, spacious cottage in an excellent location. Great for a good walk around the nearby Carsington Water and just a short drive to local towns but best of all just next door to a lovely pub with great food, Knockerdown Inn. Would really recommend this cottage holiday for everyone, including families, as with an indoor pool gives another option to keep children entertained.
Had a lovely stay at Knockerdown. The cottage and all buildings were clean and well kept, very friendly staff. Little one loved the swimming pool and the booking of a slot each day to adhere to covid restrictions worked well and pool was always clean. Surrounding area great - lots of nice places to eat (need to book a table generally), great runs/walks, cycle hire at the lake, heights of Abraham and Alton Towers were all favourites. Highly recommended Knockerdown for a break in the UK
We had a fantastic stay at Knockerdown cottages staying in Bruns. Fantastic location and facilities for families, friends or couples in a lovely location.
Amazing ! Thanks so much for a lovely break away - we really enjoyed it and felt very safe during our stay. All the Covid measures are very well put in place and very reassuring
We had a fantastic stay. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. The swimming pool was a great touch and the booking system worked great. Plenty of availability for everyone. Great location for a family trip with young children. Thank you!
Loved the stay! Very clean and exactly like the pictures. In a great location with it being only a 10 minute drive from Ashbourne. Great communication from the host who were quick to answer any questions we had. Having the pool to ourselves was also a bonus! Would definitely recommend!
Fantastic place to stay and exceeded all expectations! Beautiful, spacious, well equipped cottage in stunning countryside. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the pool was amazing! We felt very safe here as it was all very clean and organised. Location wise, it’s perfect too. We will definitely be back! Thank you
Nice rural location with lovely pool and play area for the children. Close to Carsington water and other great locations in the Derbyshire dales.
The kids smiled from morning to night which means they loved the place We absolutely loved our stay at Knockerdown. Everything was just perfect
What a great find! We were visiting Alton Towers for a rearranged visit and wanted to spend more than one night, we came across Knockerdown Holiday Cottages by chance and we are so glad we did. It was perfect for us, the living space was bigger than expected and perfect for our two families. The bedrooms were all well proportioned and the cottage was well equipped, with everything we needed. We managed to get a slot in the pool and used the children's play area and actually felt safe doing both in the current Covid climate. The pub across the road was an added bonus, although the road was a bit busy to cross (a speed camera near by would be a good addition to slow the traffic down!). We really couldn't fault our stay and will definitely come back when visiting the Peak District. Thank you!
Self catering in our own very well equipped, spacious and clean cottage felt safe and comfortable. Swimming pool on site was still open with individual cottages pre booking a slot, which worked well. Children's playground and grounds also open, with other guests also following the Government guidelines. Plenty of free car parking.
Stayed in Bonsall Cottage which sleeps 2/3 people. Excellent for friendliness of staff, value for money and good information on the local area. Good accommodation and cleanliness. We will return.
Stayed in Lendow Cottage which sleeps 10 people had a great stay, excellent accommodation, very clean and staff were friendly. Good value for money and information on local area. We will return.
I am writing to congratulate you on the facilities provided at this site. My family of 10 stated at the Farmhouse and we were pleased with the facilities, not only in the cottage but in the locality and further afield. The accommodation met our needs: good sized bedrooms, large kitchen with large fridge and freezer, dishwasher and dinning crockery and cutlery. It was different having a real fire and we all enjoyed the warmth it provided. All the adults and 2 under 16 year olds ( 15 and 8) thoroughly enjoyed access to the swimming pool and sauna, as well as the games room, which provided hilarious entertainment for young and old. It was great having a local pub nearby (2 minutes’ walk away), though we only visited the pub twice during the week, still it offered fabulous meals which were all cooked to order. A mile away was Carsington Water and all the facilities on offer- boat and cycle hire, fishing, walking, wildlife centres as well as water sports: something for everyone. Ashbourne, Bakewell and Chatsworth House were all within easy reach - so all in all we had a fabulous week. All in all a fabulous place. I would be grateful if you would keep our email on your system and keep us informed with regards the availability of the accommodation at Knockerdown. Sarah, one of the office staff was very helpful - she pointed out the accommodation is used for weddings also Thank you again
