Great location93% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

Briar Cottage is a great location being close to both Matlock and Chesterfield. The cottage was originally a barn and nestles in the hill side overlooking beautiful countryside. The village of Alton is right on the edge of the Peak District, with a working cattle farm at its heart. We have a small dog, Bea a cat called Tilly and chickens who provide fresh and tasty eggs for breakfast. The cottage is full of charm and character providing an atmosphere of peace & tranquillity.

Hope's home is adorable, comfortable, inviting and quaint. However, I think it's only all those things because of Hope. She made the quaint adorable home and location into a wonderful experience an adventure of a lifetime. I loved my time that I spent in her home and with her.

Hope was a welcoming and hospitable host. Her delightful home was a perfect rural and restful place to stay, after a busy day at Chatsworth Horse Trials. We were very well looked after. I would definitely recommend staying here and would gladly return.

Hope was a wonderful hostess. She helped me plan my itinerary though the peak district and beyond! The room was exactly what I needed for 2 nights, and the home was absolutely adorable.
