Something for all the family

Croft View Cottage is special; it was our family home for sixteen years and our children spent their early years growing up here. The welcoming, homely feel is immediately apparent as you enter the cottage.

Croft View Cottage has gained the “Families Welcome” accreditation from “Visit Britain” which means that you should be assured that your family is booking quality accommodation which meets the needs of families.

In addition, we are very proud to have gained the Gold Award in the “Think Family” category of the East Midlands Enjoy England Excellence Awards.

We like to give you a special welcome at Croft View Cottage and aim to provide a home from home for you to enjoy your holiday in. We try to prepare the cottage to suit the needs of expected guests ,whether they be 5 months old or 95!, in order to make your stay as enjoyable and trouble free as possible.

The cottage is beautifully decorated and of a high standard. It is equally appealing to families or groups of friends whether they be holidaying with or without children, we only get out the toys, cot etc. when we are expecting young visitors.

Foolow is a tiny village and is very pretty with its village green and duck pond where you might like to feed the ducks.

There are lots of lovely walks from the door of Croft View Cottage and plenty of cows, sheep and birdlife all around.

You can walk to Eyam which is about 1.5 miles away, read about the plague there and find out why Eyam is famous at Eyam Museum, visit the church, Eyam Hall and its craft shops and maybe have an ice cream.
