Posted by on in Peak District

Do you love visiting traditional English pubs?  The Peak District has loads of pubs, many traditional, some modernised and plenty serving delicious hearty food.  Being a walking area many of the pubs in the Peak District welcome walkers and dogs so it's ideal for a day out, short break or longer stay, when you can take in one or a few pubs on a walk!

We've recently updated our list of recommended pubs with comments and suggestions that we hope you will find helpful.  Some of our favourites include the Red Lion, Litton; The Old Dog, Thorpe, The Church Inn, Chelmorton, The Coach and Horses, Fenny Bentley and The Devonshire Arms Hartington.

We base our reviews on friendliness of landlords and staff, quality and value of the food, range of beers and wines and how walker and dog friendly they are.  We also include some suggested walks to take in the pubs too.

One pub that is nearly on the list is The Angler's Rest in Milldale.  We are delighted that there are new reviews on Trip Advisor that are getting excellent comments.  Hopefully it will be on the list soon!

Holiday cottage reviews and testimonials are a key chink in your marketing armour.  Future guests will use them to make a decision whether to book with your holiday cottage or not. Both our holiday cottage websites have house guest book pages and they are the most visited pages on our websites after the bookings calendar.  
Here's our testimonial page for Valley View holiday cottage.  www.dovedaleholidaycottage.co.uk
Having reviews and testimonials on Trip Advisor is important for your holiday cottage profile and does wonders for your marketing, but do beware that anything can be posted!  Our holiday cottages have had some fantastic feedback on Trip Advisor, here's a couple of the comments:
'Perfection! I can't say enough good things about this house. Every single thing we needed was catered for (and some things we never even thought of!)'
'Peak District perfection.  We (my friends and I) have spent a week at Riverside House each January since 2012 as part of an annual catch up. Each time I return it's like coming home. The holiday house itself is located in the peaceful and picturesque Litton Mill, which is ideally situated for walkers. 
'Amazing week at Valley View. As a large party, we have booked many holiday houses in the past but can confidently say that our stay at Valley View was one of the best for a number of reasons. The location is fantastic if you are interested in great views and lovely walks directly from the house, whether along the river or one of the many circular walks around the locality. The facilities at the holiday house are second to none and were ideal for visitors of all ages from 6 months to 70 years.'

If you do get a negative comment, respond and write back with your comments, and give some reasons, what you are going to do about the issue or even whether you think the comment is a fair one or not.  The best thing is to engage in a conversation.
And when your guests leave don't forget to ask them for feedback, you can easily create a simple feedback form to email over to them.  The feedback that they provide is vital for making improvements, finding out what guests like and dislike and it helps you collect comments and testimonials to use on your own website.  If you can engage in a conversation with your guests they are more likely to remember you and you will give them the image of a caring holiday cottage owner.  You never know they may well be happy to write a Trip Advisor review for you and may well be prompted to come back again in the future.
