So, you are visiting the beautiful Peak District and want to get out and see the sites but still need access to the online world either for work or play.
All of our cottages have WiFi Internet access. Hayloft and Byre Cottages have Superfast 10Meg connections to the Internet which is some of the fastest connectivity available in the Peak District. This is provided by our local Derbyshire based ISP – W3Z Broadband Limited in Ripley. Cliffe Cottage in Castleton also has WiFi Internet access over the traditional BT landline network at speeds of approximately 4Meg. All are secured with a network key which is changed regularly and clearly shown in the information pack in each cottage.
If you have children who have Internet capable devices with them and do not wish them to have access to specific websites or content, then please let us know as we can, in most cases, block access.
Access to WiFi is completely FREE but we do ask that you observe the following guidelines for your own online security and to remain within the law.
You are very welcome to access the BBC’s Iplayer, ItV’s … and Channel 4’s watch and listen again services together with any Internet radio, VOIP (Skype) service. Equally there are no restrictions on VPN’s or other remote connection applications. We do however actively discourage you from utilising any file sharing or P2P software such as File Donkey, Knutella etc. Where possible we have restricted access to these services for your online safety and our online reputation with our ISP and law enforcement agencies.
