 A last minute booking and what a lovely surprise on our arrival. Lovely Beech Cottage has it all. Beth and Glyn are the friendliest hosts and full of useful information and can't do enough for their visitors. Very quite, beautiful setting and great base for visiting the lovely local area. Would highly recommend.
Tracey & Mal, East London Aug.'21
 Had a very happy stay at Beech Cottage while we moved house. Beth and Glyn gave us a very friendly and warm welcome, even putting us a Christmas tree in the cottage. Nothing was too much trouble. The cottage is snug and warm and well equipped. We shall miss the view! Many thanks.
Cynthia & Bob, Cheadle Dec.'20
 Lovely peaceful time had, very quiet and dark at night. Walked quite a portion of the Cauldon Canal, very interesting. Consall Woods Nature Reserve, Deep Hayes Country Park, Ladderedge Country Parks all worth a visit, as is Froghall Wharf. Finished the week off walking part of the Manifold Way! Very Good.

Beth & Glyn are the most lovely, friendly, inviting people you would ever meet. Nothing is a bother to them and they feel like old friends when we came back. Have a lovely life Beth Glyn &family you really deserve it. The scenery is wonderful and we shall call it a draw between home and here. We shall be back.

We don't want to leave. Best of the best, such a lovely cottage + area + hospitality. Can't ask for much more, we shall be back. Thank you for everything.x
Charlotte & Ibraheem,Walthamstow, June '14
There was a time when we left Summerhill to return home. Now we just leave one home to return to another and leave our second family to rejoin the first. We hope that the Plant family enjoys Monte C. as much as we enjoy Dilhorne. Thanks to the whole Plant family!! P.S. Maybe Glyn will get to bed on time now that we've left!
Joan & Stan, Georgetown, Canada May '14
Thank you Beth & Glyn for always a warm welcome & the pleasurable extra: flowers, milk, bread. The tornado didn't happen, just usual Peak weather- the odd shower, a greyness, but wee had a fine walk down the Manifold Valley - not a soul or cycle for 4 miles & a walk today in Dimmingsdale in golden sunshine. The autumn colour in the beech, birch and larch trees are very beautiful. Fine performance by "Northern Broadside" at the New Vic. Thank you again Beth & Glyn - we appreciate your cottages enormously.
Frank & Chris Oct.2013
We loved it here! Your hospitality was much appreciated and the information provided was very useful. The calm and peaceful surroundings were just what we needed and we enjoyed watching the calves playing across the way. Thank you for providing such a lovely place to stay. Thanks also for the eggs, bread and milk. We hope we'll be back one day.
Barbara & Dion, Australia May.2014
Second lovely stay, everything as nice as before-weather even better - only rained one day!! Many thanks to you both - esp. loved all the little "extras" Beth provided in cottage.
Steve and Wendy, Sept.2013
Alas we come to the end of this year's visits. Five whole months before we return, almost too long but well worth the wait. Thank you to Summerhill.
Joan and Stan, Ontario, Canada, August 2013
Our fifth visit (I think). Lovely weather and walks down Manifold Valley. Grand to be back.
Chris & Frank. August 2013
Our third visit - won't be our last - says it all! Wedgwood Museum/Saxon Hoard (in City Museum) both fascinating & worth goint to. Thank you Beth and Glyn for a relaxing (too short) break.
Ann & Andrew, East Yorkshir July, 2013
The website should carry a warning, "visitors beware, Summerhill is addictive and the Plant family irresistably friendly" Nigh on impossible to stay away.
Joan and Stan, Ontario, Canada July 2013
 Fantastic place to stay with all the comforts of home. Great location to explore this part of England. Very peaceful and lovely sunsets. Wonderful hosts, thanks for the milk, eggs, bread & flowers. Wish we could stay longer!
Bill and Robyn, Jewells, NSW Australia 2013
 We've always appreciated Beth and Glyn's gift of making guests feel at home, but twelve inches of snow was priceless!!!! Thank you for everything, particularly the "dig out". See you in the summer
Joan and Stan, Ontario, Canada January 2013
 A lovely few days here - only one thoroughly wet one and Dimmingsdale looked lovely in the damp with glimmers of sunlight and the Manifold Valley, beautiful with Autumn colours. A lone buzzard circled overhead. Off to the New Vic Theatre today to to see cousins.  Thank you for your warm cosy BeechCottage. We'll see you again soon.
Peter and Chris, Suffolk, October 2012
 Two weeks is not enough. Next time we'll have to stay for a "real" holiday. Thanks to Ollie and Georgia for the lesson in poultry management.
Joan & Stan, Ontario, Canada, August, 2012
 Fantastic place, peaceful and spotless as last time. We will be back. Many thanks.
Wendy and Tony, Hampshire, 2012
 Thanks once more to the Plant clan. As usual the cottage was perfect, but the weather....! Perhaps someone will do something about it before August.
Joan & Stan Ontario, April,2012
 A home from home, but with a much better view! Comfort, pleasure and adventure, particularly the ride on Glyn's tractor. Sadness, the white cows calf! Summerhill has not seen the last of us. Merci.
