  • "Have just enjoyed a lovely holiday in this delightful cottage."

    From the moment of entering the front door its cleanliness and general comfort gave a welcoming feeling. The cake was a treat much enjoyed! The garden is ideal for dogs, completely safe and enclosed with the view an added extra. We found plenty to do in the area, lots of walks and places of interest to visit for days out in the National Park. Thanks to Wayne and family for making their cottage such a pleasant venue for holidays. Jill and Rowland Ross + Flecks our spaniel.

    Very comfortable bed. Secluded, but well placed for trips into the Peak District for walks in the hills. Lovely garden, which because of the warm weather we were able to make full use of. Highly recommended.

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Warm & toasty. The main bedroom is especially nice & the skyline over the bed is a real added bonus. Nice bathroom with a big bath & a reasonable sized garden. The owner of the cottage, Wayne, is really nice & very accommodating. The cake & milk were a very nice welcome so thank you Wayne. The neighbours we spoke to were all very friendly too. We were very fortunate because we booked for 2 weeks pre-lockdown so, as per government guidelines, we were able to complete our stay. Thanks Wayne & Sykes Cottages

  • "My husband is 6'3 tall so when looking for cottages, although I like traditional places, I try to find ones with headroom so he can stand up straight."

    From the pictures available it looked like the cottage had normal ceiling height, he could stand up straight but almost touched the downstairs ceilings but of course the doorframes were very low particularly the main bedroom which was a whole head height lower. I would be grateful if this information was available in the listing just so our time spent in a cottage is not constantly fraught with "watch your head" as it is easy to forget to duck!! The property was very comfortable and with a nice garden if you take a dog. We were provided with fuel for the log burner and the heating was lovely and warm so easily ideal in the winter. The cottage is well furnished with a range cooker and all equipment in the kitchen for meals in if you chose to cook. It is in a lovely area of the high peaks and we were blessed with a bright, sunny day to visit Quarrybank Mill, a National Trust site which was a short drive away. There are also plenty of walks nearby which was ideal. Please feel free to publish the second part of the feedback, the first part relates to Sykes listing.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback for The Cottage Glossop, we have changed the listing to include that head height may be restricted, so future customers are well informed when booking. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

    Everything you need is there, including toilet rolls, cleaning products etc. All cooking utensils you may need. Comfortable beds and lovely clean & excellent condition of bedding. Stairs may be a little narrow & steep for those with mobility issues. In a greatvlocTion to have a good explore of the area with plenty of information at hand in the cottage.

  • "The cottage was well equipped and had a very cosy feel about it."

    Everything was clean and tidy on arrival and the decoration was very good and the furniture stylish and good quality, even down to the artwork on the walls. The gardens were tidy and well kept with a patio from the lounge equipped with a table and benches and another garden area to the front with a table and chairs unfortunately we picked possibly the wettest week of the year so were unable to take advantage of the outside spaces. Despite the weather we had a very enjoyable week touring round all the attractions and found some very nice walks with the dog but it was nice to come back to relax in nice surroundings. Our only gripe was that the fridge was a little small but we managed.

  • "An absolutely perfect cottage."

    There is not a negative thing that I can say about this cottage, in fact would go so far to say the best and most well equipped accommodation that we have ever stayed in!! The kitchen was fantastically well stocked with all the utensils and odds and ends that you could want for. The living room has both a DVD player and chromecast (as well as DVDs and boardgames). The rooms were all very clean and was a great home from home. Also loads of tourist leaflets in the property as well as walking trail routes/maps. The location of the cottage is perfect too (the view from the garden is awesome), Glossop and all its shops are only 5 mins away, and to get on the peaks for walking will take you about 3 minutes. The cottage is also only 5 minutes away from the Trans Penine Trail and a short drive from the Longdendale Trail. The cottage is in a cluster of 3 other properties, no problems with parking and the neighbours that we met were very friendly. The back garden is dog escape proof, but our pooch did find a way out the front one - not a problem though as only used the back :) Worth saying that the wifi was actually very good, sometimes with 4 of us on at once, no slowness seen. The overall location is great too in relation to places like Chatsworth, Lyme Park, Buxton, Matlock etc etc Can not recommend this cottage enough...we will certainly come here again :)

About the location

GLOSSOP

Buxton 14 miles.

The bustling, former mill town of Glossop sits in the north west of Derbyshire, surrounded by magnificent scenery in the Peak District. The town has plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as a golf course with a pay-per-play scheme. Nearby, Manor Park was once the grounds of Glossop Hall, which belonged to the Dukes of Norfolk. Today it provides a wonderful spot for a picnic in the summer, with bowling greens, a semi-natural woodland, a children’s play area and tennis courts. The town of Glossop is also ideally situated for exploring the nearby Peak District National Park, with many attractions for walkers, cyclists and tourists. These include the peaceful village of Hayfield, less than five miles away and popular with walkers due its close proximity to Kinder Scout. A little further afield, Edale is the start of the Pennine Way and also caters well for tourists with its own collection of pubs, cafes and restaurants. As well as its magnificent scenery, the Peak District has many other attractive places to visit, including Chatsworth House, the spa town of Buxton and its majestic gardens and architecture. Visit the famous Blue John show caves at Castleton, the mining museum at Matlock and the Derwent Valley reservoirs, where The Dambusters practised low-level flying in World War II. 15 miles away, only half an hour by train, is Manchester with all its big city amenities and attractions. Here, you will find the United and City football stadiums, an abundance of high street and boutique shops, theatres, restaurants, a concert hall and a vibrant night life. With so much to see, do and visit in the surrounding area, you are sure of a fun-filled holiday!
