  • "Beautiful property but as reported to the owner it may be advisible to point out that people who are not so mobile like ourselves might struggle with the stairs in the house and the garden."

    We would also suggest a non slip mat in the shower would be handy.

    Many thanks for your feedback. We will be in contact with Sykes to publish photos of the garden for reference and take on board your points. Property Owner

  • "Great little place in a great location."

    Convenient parking, nearby shops and local walks as well as being a base for driving (or train) to places like Edale, Buxton etc. The cottage was clean, well presented and well cared for by the owner who was helpful and easy to contact. Good value and would happily book again

    Thank you for your lovely comments and we’d love to have you stay with us again. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage, modern, very clean and well presented."

    Slow cooker a nice touch although we didn't use it. Well situated for prime attractions in the peak district. Took a while to get used to the heating but worked ok once sussed. Would benefit from a full length mirror in the main bedroom, otherwise top notch. Well done.

    Many thanks for the feedback. Full length mirror now installed in main bedroom. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Bluebell cottage is a small/compact terraced house for 4 people."

    It was ideal for my wife and myself. Downstairs the kitchen and lounge is only just big enough to accommodate 4 people. The 2 two seater settees are quite small and are somewhat uncomfortable. Upstairs the main bedroom and shower room are in very good order apart from a very uneven bed base which we reported on arrival and it was repaired within 12 hours which we were pleased with and it was a very comfortable bed, the bedroom would benefit with some blackout curtains. The other bedroom has bunk beds and is very small and maybe suitable for 2 children, but not a further 2 adults, with no wardrobe or any storage space, apart from 2 very small bedside cabinets. There seems to be a lack of attention to detail because there was only one tea towel on arrival, no salt, tin foil or kitchen roll. Location was perfect with all local amenities a short walk away.

  • "I’m almost loathe to post this!"

    ! My wife and I loved this little cottage - it had everything in it we love to have in a holiday rental, including not one, but two smart TV’s which, when you are on holiday in the depths of winter as we did in December, they come in handy for the long nights. If you are pensioners, like us, and have a bus pass, the small bus station is only a 15 minute walk away, where you can catch a bus to many different places in the area. Despite there being no dedicated private parking, we never had a problem getting a spot on the road right outside the cottage, a road which is not that busy and quiet at night. One day we hope to return!

    Many thanks for your comments. Glad we managed to exceed your expectations and hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

  • "The property was very clean and we found it warm and cosy."

    The chairs and bed ware very comfortable. Although we didn't use them the table and chairs in the back garden would have been nice in the warm weather. Th shower was easy to operate. There are lots of interesting places within easy reach of the property. The only thing we think would have improved it would have been a low table for us to put books, papers etc on in the evenings.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. A table is something I have been looking into and there will be one available going forwards. As you say, being able to have somewhere for your coffee, a book or whilst playing one of the games would be useful. Property Owner

  • "Great cottage, modern and well finished."

    It was nice and clean. Great to be able to park outside. Really could do with a mirror in the main bedroom, no where to blow dry your hair.

The property

Bluebell Cottage is a contemporary, mid-terrace cottage located in the small town of New Mills, Derbyshire.

Overlooking the River Sett in a peaceful location, this lovely property offers open-plan living, a garden, and easy access to local amenities and the Peak District National Park.

Be immediately welcomed by a stylish living area thoughtfully decorated with homely touches; you'll have no problem rustling up your best home-cooked dishes in the well-equipped kitchen area!

Set up a hearty breakfast at the sleek breakfast bar with coffee fresh from the coffee maker, whilst you plan the day's itinerary.

When you return, two leather sofas entice you to relax with a hot brew and your favourite show on the TV.

Why not catch the last of the evening sun in your private garden with outdoor seating?

Afterwards, climb the stairs to make yourself at home in two lovely bedrooms with a plush grey carpet.

The double looks onto the river and has a TV, and bedside lamps for night-time readers, whilst the bunk bedroom suits children or adults with a high ceiling offering plenty of space.

Get ready for the day ahead in the pristine shower room with a walk-in shower room and heated towel rail to freshen up in comfort.

Take a break from the kitchen and dine at the nearby Sycamore Inn in Birch Vale, whilst you'll find everything you need in the local convenience store.

For attractions, you'll be spoilt for choice with The Torrs Riverside Park, New Mills Golf Club, a fishing club close by and the National Trust's impressive Lyme, a country estate featured in the Pride and Prejudice series!

Stop off at Hayfield on your way into the Peak District to fuel up at a traditional inn or coffee shop, before venturing on a hike up Kinder Scout, hill-walking along Jacob's Ladder, or explore illuminated limestone caves at Blue John Cavern.

You'll find the village of Castleton close by, home to the impressive ruins of the hilltop Peveril Castle and guided tours of Peak Cavern, followed by dinner at the 17th-century Ye Olde Nags Head.

The spa town of Buxton is a must visit where the Buxton Opera House, Museum & Art Gallery, and the underground caves of Poole's Cavern & Buxton Country Park are brimming with local heritage.

Make Bluebell Cottage your home from home on your next Peak District adventure.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location

NEW MILLS

Hayfield 2.5 miles; Buxton 11 miles; Castleton 11.5 mies

New Mills is a small town situated on the borders of North West Derbyshire and Cheshire, forming part of the Derbyshire Peak District. Dating back to the 13th century, the late 20th century saw the Torrs Riverside Park (‘the park under the town’) come into being a place for recreation and relaxation, along with the New Mills Heritage Centre, opened to promote tourism in the area. The Torrs Millennium Walkway, a much-admired bridge, is set deep in the gorge and attracts many visitors, while Chapel en le Frith, the Capital of the Peaks, is only 5 miles away, boasting a cobbled market place and historic old stocks. Within easy driving distance is the delightful spa town of Buxton, famous not only for its therapeutic spring water, but also for its Pavillion Gardens and splendid Victorian Opera House, which boasts a variety of shows, attracting people from all over the world. Within easy driving distance are the Blue John show caves at Castleton and many stately homes such as Chatsworth House and Lyme Hall. You could even leave your car behind as there are direct rail links to Manchester, the Hope Valley and Sheffield. An ideal base for exploring the whole of the Peak District.
