"Lovely property well maintained and well fitted out in a great location"
"Met with a very nice cheerful smile shown around nice and clean all around ..."
Met with a very nice cheerful smile shown around nice and clean all around explained how to turn the central heating on if we required it as normal when we have a cottage hovered around before we left think we left nice and clean as we found it thank you for a great week only let down was the weather but that’s England Patricia and Richard
"We had an amazing stay at No."
4. The cottage was perfectly located and easy to find, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Need to update the bathroom picture/description - now a lovely shower room. Only negative was having to leave by 9am! My daughter is animal mad and her favourite bird is a peacock, so she absolutely loves it here. We'll definitely be back again!
Immaculate, great position. Nothing bad to say. The whole family had a pleasant and relaxing time. Thank you.
"We had a brilliant holiday in the Peak District and the accommodation was perfect."
Welcoming gesture of biscuits and milk on arrival. Added bonus was the resident Peacock who came to the back door every day. Would definitely recommend.
"This is a wonderful cottage to stay in if you are deaf or need less sleep than a peacock, i."
E. if you only want to sleep between 11pm and 4am. I didn’t mind being on a busy road, or the tractor at 6.30am or 10.30pm, or the cockerel in the morning, or the creaky stairs which you can hear if someone gets up to go to the toilet in the night as it’s downstairs and there are no bedroom doors, but the very loud peacock at 4-5am every morning ruined what could have been a lovely holiday. The accommodation itself was very pleasant and the location is very handy but even with ear plugs the peacock still woke me up every morning and I was very glad to leave and be able to have a lie in till 7am when I got home. I did message Sykes to see if we could move after 2 nights but they didn’t reply until 5 days later - the day we left.
"THE PROPERTY WAS WELL PRESENTED CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE."
THE LOCATION WAS IDEAL FOR VISITING THE DERBYSHIRE DALES. THE KITCHEN ALTHOUGH SMALL WAS WELL EQUIPED WITH ELECTRICAL GADGETS,CUTTELRY PLATES AND GLASSWARE. THE SHOWER ROOM WAS ROOMEY CLEAN,BUT THE SHOWER TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT DID NOT PROVIDE HOT ENOUGH WATER TO SHOWER WITH IN MY OPINION.
"A great place to stay."
The kitchen was very well stocked with everything we needed for our stay. The shower room is modern. The accommodation had lots of space and was comfortable. The outside space is great for kids. It is well situated within a short drive to many local sites within the peaks. Easy to find and parking is right outside the front door.
! We booked both number 3 and number 4 for a family Christmas break. Both properties were absolutely spotless. Both were lovely and warm and had constant hot water. Property in excellent condition overall, the walls are very thick with no sound from the adjoining property. All the beds are huge and so comfortable. The shower in number 4 is now a walk in shower recently installed to replace the bath and overhead shower, a lovely addition. Fantastically equipped kitchen with everything you could possibly need. Very comfortable suite with reclining chair. Parking is excellent directly outside the property. A special thank you to Sue and Phil who were excellent hosts , there if needed, discreetly allowing you space to enjoy the break. Would highly recommend. NOTE do not follow directions from Sykes it will send you to an alternative property with the same name, use the postcode and Google maps.
"A lovely cottage to explore the surrounding area - everything we needed was there and it was very clean, comfortable and warm."
"The property had everything we needed and is ideally situated for exploring the Peak District."
It was fun having the peacock and chicken come to meet us in the morning and when we arrived back later in the day for the lttle treats we gave them. There is a luvly pub called carriages about a mile down the road which serve nice ale and good food.
"Very happy, beautiful place, friendly host, Fantastic position."
Really appreciated the fresh milk and biscuits when we arrived. The kids both enjoyed watching the chickens and the Peacock wandering around. Couldn’t fault it and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to explore the Peak District.
"Brilliant cottage great area view plenty do do."
Great welcome. One for the list to return to
"A beautiful property set in the Derbyshire peaks."
Very comfortable with everything provided. Small but well set out kitchen, large L shaped lounge dining room, 2 lovely bedrooms with super king size beds. Altogether a lovely place with hosts living on site but in a separate part of the property. Ample parking, loved having the tame peacock and the chicken that wandered around.
"We have stayed here 3 times over several years and it has been lovely - very well situated with access to all the areas of the peak district."
Hosts are really friendly and helpful.
"Lovely cottage didn’t need to bring anything."
Owners do not bother you, but are their if you need them. Plenty of places to eat. Only recommendation is a better shower. Will be returning. Had a single chicken who knocked on back door to be fed. And the peacock. Wi- fi very good,mobile signal poor. And weather was fine .
"Lovely clean cottage with great character features."
The kitchen is a little compact but fully equipped.Whilst the bathroom was perfectly adequate it would benefit from an updated shower as we both struggled to wash our long hair.I hadn’t realised the proximity of the property to the A515 (which is great for accessing the rest of the Peak District ) but there is some road noise at night.Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay
"Greeted by the owner upon arrival."
Milk and chocolate biscuits provided was appreciated. Pleased with with all facilities provided. A*** . Thank you.
"Lovely sized cottage in a great location for exploring the local area."
Plenty of trail walks and nature walks right off the door step. A short drive to many beautiful market towns nearby, which all have some great history. The cottage was clean and well maintained throughout, the owner was there to welcome us in, with milk in the fridge and biscuits on the side. A welcomed bonus. They was about if you needed anything, but left you alone to enjoy your holiday. Unlike some on site owners we have experienced in the past. Our kids loved being greeted by the free range livestock. Especially the beautiful peacock. Cottage is in a great location, we will be returning again in the future, as there is so much to do, which we couldn't fit into our week.
Exceptionally well equipped. It could only be improved by glazing the bathroom window as this looked straight into farmyard and we had to have blind down all the time. Also king size pillows on the lovely king size beds would be good
"A very enjoyable holiday in comfortable and clean cottage."
A very convenient base foe exploring the Peak District. Dovedale and the Tissington Trail particularly enjoyable.
"We knew what to expect, because we've stayed in Sykes' cottages before, both on our own and with friends."
This cottage is well up to your usual standards, and the location is wonderful. This is not a complaint: we suggest that, in the listing, you remind guests to bring a torch. If you need to get up in the night the stairs are dark and steep and, without a torch, you'll have to turn the lights on and wake everybody up! The kitchen is small, but very good: better than many self-catering cottages.
"Retuned here following a break last year, so knew what to expect."
Very pleased last year and once again very pleased with everything. No complaints.
"Hello, it was a nice comfortable stay."
The cottage’s location is amazing, close to most landmarks. It was very clean and comfortable, equipped with all necessary equipments. Few points for future improvements: TV was not working, we tried our best. There are no doors between bedrooms- atleast a curtain would be better to give some privacy. There is also no lock in the toilet, which is very important for privacy. Finally, the most important is checkout time is 9am which is too early for a holiday and makes you rushed and also checkin at 4pm is too late. Checkout time of 10:30 and checkin of 2-3pm would be ideal. Hope this is taken in consideration. Thanks
"So many places of interest very close to the holiday home."
"We had a great week, lovely spacious property in a really good location for the places we wanted to visit - hiking and cycling trails."
Lovely large window facing West so we sat there in the evening watching the sun go down. Chickens and the peacock were fun and quiet. Loads of parking. Beds were very comfortable, but the lack of doors on the bedroom would have been a problem if another couple had come with us, didn't realise that you can see straight from one bedroom into the other as they are directly opposite. Maybe a curtain would an idea? Loved the mezzanine between the bedrooms looking down over the dining area. Kitchen was very small, but well equipped.
"Had a lovely break and did lots of walking from the cottage."
The cottage was the perfect base for us and we felt relaxed when we came back to it. We felt it was very clean which enabled us to feel very comfortable.
"What a fantastic cottage and location."
The beds were super comfy, the house had everything we needed and had little extras that we weren’t expecting. The location was perfect, we were able to easily access so much of what the peaks have to offer. It was a perfect holiday for our family of four.
"Great accommodation Tucked away in the countryside Great facilities Just wish ..."
Great accommodation Tucked away in the countryside Great facilities Just wish they had doors ( though we knew there weren’t any as stated) and black out blinds Everything is relatively close 15-20 mins away from attractions (Visited Bakewell bakery/ railways and Matlock Aquarium Will visit heights of Abraham next)
"Lovely to have two double bedrooms with plenty of space in the cottage."
The inside was actually much nicer than it looked in the pictures. Cosy place even in the snow!! Had an enjoyable week here.
"Lovely people who are very helpful, cottage is very warm, cosy and comfy so been ideal for good sleep around our visits to alton towers."
Only thing I would ask is if theres a possibility of having copies of menus from local pubs as the people I travel with are fussy eaters and it would have helped us make a decision where to eat!
"The hosts could not have done more."
The cottage was beautiful, the views stunning and the friendliness and support we received was amazing. Would highly recommend this holiday home. It’s 100% perfect!
"The cottage is excellent it has all the facilities you require and very good ..."
The cottage is excellent it has all the facilities you require and very good lovely people really enjoyed the holiday and lovely area to visit and lots of places to visit would recommend it to any one looking to visit Derbyshire for a Holiday very pleased Tom and jan
"When have just come had a 2 night stay at newhaven cottages."
The place was a great size for us, 4 adults, it was very clean had everything we needed. I would highly recommend it to anyone and will be staying again when we go that part of the country.
"Genial hosts welcomed you to their cottage."
"We were warmly welcomed by Sue to a lovely warm cottage."
It was beautifully presented and had everything you could possibly want. The only negatives were the lack of broadband and phone signal - but we were aware of that before we booked - also the television some times pixellated or lost signal. Perhaps a satellite provider would cure that. All in all a lovely experience staying in a centrally located area for the site seeing we wanted to do.
"Another Toilet would be nice on top but happy with the place completely."
Place is center to most of the trails. Kids love the House.
"Great cottage in a fantastic location."
"We had a lovely time in this cottage."
It was well equipped and very clean and comfortable. Great place to stop and explore the local area. Only thing missing was WIFI, but this was a really small thing as it was actually lovely to be able to switch off from everything for a few days (would have just been handy to help plan days out). Many thanks for your hospitality.
"We had the most amazing holiday and the accommodation was absolutely perfect."
It was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. We loved seeing (and hearing!) the donkeys each day and the location was perfect for our visits to Crich Tramway Village, Bakewell and Chatsworth House. The very lovely lady (unfortunately we didn't get her name) who welcomed us was extremely helpful and pleasant. We'd be back in a heartbeat! :-)
"Really fabulous - the location was ideal and we enjoyed a peaceful and enjoyable family holiday."
The owners were very friendly and the cottage was clean, comfortable and well equipped - we will definately be back!!
"Very convenient location in wonderful area."
Cottage spacious, comfortable and warm. Plenty of hot water! There was a very cold wind blowing most of our week and it was lovely to come back to a warm cottage. Parking the easiest I've ever known and the beds exceptionally comfortable. Lots of interesting places to visit nearby and the changing colours of the trees and the scenic views as we explored were amazing.
"Lovely cottage that comfortably fits 4 people and the dog."
The place is without internet but that is part of the joy of going away for a week. Located near the tissington Trail and close to other centres like Buxton and Ashborne.
