 Beth + Glyn very accommodating, when we needed somewhere to stay while having our property repaired. Just needed a home from home and that's what we got. Very comfy, clean, quiet (heaven). Would certainly recommend and hope to come back oursleves soon. Don't live far away so a bolt hole when you need a break from life.

Wendy and Tony, Nov. 2021
 Such a beautiful place, communication with Beth was excellent. Beth made us feel welcome.
A lovely touch leaving some milk and eggs.
Cleanliness of cottage was outstanding. Lovley fresh, clean beds.
We spent 3 days here whilst visiting Alton Towers twice. It was lovely to come back to the cottage. The two children absolutely loved it as well. The cottage is a breath of fresh air and I wish I could have stayed longer or maybe forever!!!
Once again Beth thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage, we loved it and hopefully one day we will be back. Many thanks

 Fantastic location for what we wanted! Beth, you were great and we had everything catered for, brilliant job!! Would recommend who needs a stopover for Alton Towers or the surrounding area, particularly the Peak District. We loved it here and hope to be back soon. Zipwire was also a lot of fun this morning. Thank you
Matt, Noah and Nancy, Saffron Walden, August 2021
 We booked to stay for 3 nights while visiting Alton Towers for 2 days. I wish we were staying longer to enjoy it more!
The cottage is beautiful and so cosy! Did not expect the lovely fresh milk + eggs or big soft towels! Everything we could've needed + more was here in the cottage for us! Beth + Glyn have both been so welcoming and friendly too!Such amazing hosts.
The girls absolutely loved the zipline, swing, slide + den! They are desperate to visit again for another shot and to see the cows!
Will be recommending to family + friends and hope to visit again soon! Thank you Beth and Glyn for sharing and letting us experience your lovely bit of paradise.

 Booked so could meet local friends, which Dilhorne Royal Oak cater wonderfully to allergies.
We also planned some local days out, would recomment Peak Wildlife Park. Great location, lovely cows which enhanced our stay. Wonderful property, Chestnut, for disabled with wet room. Hope to return
Christine and Alison, King's Lynn, June 2021
 Thank you for having us. We have had an amazing stay. Kids can't wait to come again! Accommodation is perfect, despite the covid restrictions. We all had a great time. We will be back, if you'll have us! Thank you
The Pinfolds, Dover, May 2021
 Wow! A beautiful well equipped cottage. Beth very friendly and helpful, thought of everything. Staffordshire Moorlands is an undiscovered gem. Stunning, quiet countrysid but unpolit by loads of tourists. A very enjoyable break. Thank you.
Sophie, Alex & Tony, Hertfordshire may 2021
 Great short stay - love you and the place a lot.
You are a fantastic host - v. helpful with anything we needed and a natural storyteller. The place was perfect for our special family holiday taking grandad down memoery lane. Thank you.
Margaret, Alan, Celia and Emily, Enfield May 2019
 We wanted to stay somewhere very quiet, away from the noise of New Year's Eve party goers and revellers. I chose Chestnut Cottage as it promised us peace and quite and I am pleased to say that it delivered!! It is a lovely tranquil place, pretty even in winter. Beth greeted us warmly onour arrival and helped us settle in. The cottage is fabulous - we have no comp[laints whatsoever! We hope to come back next New Year's Eve too. Thank you very much Beth.

As always, perfection. Always the little extra touches which make it special. Thanks to the "establishment".
We've had a month here, very comfy, just like home, without the heat. Thanks Beth and Glyb

 Had a very relaxing few days, cottage has everything you could possibly want. Friendly, caring welome. If we visit this part of the country again we would def. stay here.
Evelyn and Lesley May 2019
 Thank you so much for a perfect stay. The cottage is so perfectly set out with a modern, well-equipped kitchen, comfortable warmth, lovely bread and milk, very relaxing couches and bed  and of course there are the beautiful views and cows and to top it all a warm welcome from Beth, Glyn and Nathan.
Kathleen and Per March 2019
 Once again a lovely time and a very warm welcome from Beth for our Valentine weekend away. A very nice meal at Nom in Hanley.

 Can't believe we left gaps so long between visits! Beautiful as ever! Loved meeting your new cows and strolling the field although all too brief! Look forward to seeing you again.

 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
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
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
 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.
