  • "Lovely location."

    Good parking. We were 3 couples so being able to park on the road as well as by the cottage was great. Cottage pretty clean but some cobwebs and stains on sheets. A few things had been written on the list in the kitchen by previous renters but not dealt with - fridge makes loud noise, heating set too high, knob had come off dishwasher so door couldn't be opened, chipped mugs need replacing.

  • "Very pretty cottage, very clean & very well equipped."

    It was great for my family, 6 of us for the weekend & 3 of us for the rest of the stay. We would return. Bakewell is lovely too, very pretty & lots of great places to eat. Please improve the neglected garden. The gardens are open plan & it is next to the prettiest garden!

  • "The cottage was very good."

    Way above expectations. However the access is not suitable for elderly people if they are not fit. However the lovely location more than made up for this. It is one of the best self catering properties I have stayed in. Lots of info on area very well equipped I had reason to contact the cleaning service and they were very helpful. useful provisions in the kitchen, as I forgot tea and coffee we could have a drink before rushing to the shop. We also felt it was good value for money.

    The Cottage was equipped and furnished to a very high standard and we had everything we needed. The location was also excellent for our many jaunts across the peaks.

  • "We enjoyed the holiday."

    I personally felt a little uncomfortable of the sofas and the bedroom on the lowest floor (i thought was the same level as the livingroom but wasnt) was hard to get at the right temperature. Other than that it was a nice place. I would choose to avoid the hill to get to it again (my dog needs a stroller) for short dog walks nearby (although this is on the information i had underestimated it).

  • "It was a lovely cottage in a great location which was very peaceful."

    However despite information stating that the heating and towel rails came on they didn’t and there were no instructions. I rang the contact and advised that there are numerous comments in the visitor book stating the same issue and yet nothing has been done about it. We had to manually turn it on morning and evening and it seemed that if you tried to put it on outside ‘set times’ it didn’t come on. Really disappointing and not what you expect having paid over £600. There was an hour wait to call Sykes due to Covid so was unable to speak to anyone. Also there was no mattress protector which we only found out when we stripped the bed which is unacceptable in these COVID times. Also would recommend that people are advised to put everything in the dishwasher before they leave and cleaners unload with gloves so you know it is all clean. This was done at the cottage we stayed at prior to this and we felt very safe using everything.

    One of the best we have ever stayed in. Just one small niggle - as the stairs are rather steep, additional handrails would be very welcome.

  • "I thought the accommodation could have been cleaned a bit better for our arrival."

    There were visible cobwebs and spiders and the downstairs bedroom and bathroom floors could’ve been cleaned more thoroughly. All of that aside the accommodation was very pleasant and comfortable and in a great location and we will definitely visit again.

  • "This was one of the most comfortable, well-equipped and well-maintained cottages we have ever stayed in."

    Despite it being a mid-terrace cottage, it housed 5 people and a very large dog with ease. Just a couple of small niggles: it would be useful to have some better and fuller instructions for the heating; instructions with regard to disposal of rubbish at the end of the stay. Finally, I think the description of the property doesn't make it clear enough that the en-suite 'cloakroom' is just that and the property should not really be described as having '3 bathrooms'. Overall we would happily return.

    Excellent facilities and being close to Bakewell was real bonus with lots of walking nearby. The walk back up the hill didn't get any easier but you definately knew you were alive. It was a rare find making our stay brilliant in a lovely quiet area of Bakewell and the neighbours are very friendly.

  • "Perfect cottage for 3 couples for a long weekend stay in Bakewell."

    Decorated to a high standard with good quality furniture & fittings. Lovely log burner kept us toasty warm in the evenings but even without it, the central heating was very efficient. Hard to think of any negatives other than we needed more than 3 wine glasses!

  • "The cottage had been quite recently completely and tastefully renovated to provide very comfortable accommodation."

    It was beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean. It hadn’t been a rental cottage for long and there were a few minor things which could be done to improve it. For example, there was only one tea towel provided, no kitchen towel and no spare loo rolls. These few items would have made it more a home from home. However, I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone wishing to spend time in this area and would certainly book again in the future.

  • "Great cottage in an ideal location for Bakewell and the surrounding Peak District."

    Great qulaity house with everything you need and it's obviously recently been refurbished to a very high quality. The only issues at all were that the corkscrew was broken and the heating controls could do with more instruction as to how they're operated. All in all a very good cottage that we would definitely return to again.

  • "For the less agile amongst us it is located on the side of a hill and is a steep ascent and descent to and from the town by foot."

    Access to the property is ok as the parking is close by. The property is part of a terrace but has been nicely refurbished. Again handrails would be nice on the stairs but overall a very enjoyable holiday in a lovely area.

  • "A lovely, clean and well maintained cottage on 3 levels."

    Really enjoyed the view from the top floor. All the appliances were new and the kitchen is well stocked. The one disadvantage for people arriving by public transport is that they need to check the bus times to get to the cottage as they are few and far between during the Summer Season and stop by 5.00pm. I gather that they run more frequently up to the afore time mentioned during School Term times. We were unable to get a taxi to the cottage although we did try several. It is a steep hill to get up there for people who for various reasons, are not physically able to manage it.

    The downstairs shower suffered with pressure. The sofa isn't great (comfort wise) and the house would maybe benefit from a DVD player. Other than that, the house is stunning the facilities are excellent. I would highly highly recommend this for others to use.

  • "Very nicely (obviously fairly recently) renovated / extended cottage."

    Good facilities. Could do with more precise info on the re-cycling / waste arrangements. Good location, away from the centre of town to be quiet,but near enough to easily walk (a bit hilly).

  • "The cottage is beautifully fitted out and a short ( though hilly ) walk into town."

    Easy to get out and about in the Peaks. A few things could improve though. Currently the cottage next door is being renovated and though the builders did try to be quiet they arrived at 7am which disturbed those in the bedroom downstairs. A pre warning regarding the building work would have been appreciated. The downstairs bedroom has the back door in it and has glass with nothing to stop the light getting in in the morning... a curtain or solid door would improve this. I hope this doesn’t sound negative as all in all we had a wonderful time and the cottage setting is fantastic. The downstairs shower room has no shelving for putting toiletries on and this would be useful.
