  • "The property is absolutely perfect, the finish is immaculate and the owners, Craig and Alina made sure we were welcomed and looked after whilst we stayed in the property."

    There's lots of walks from right outside the property, which always seem to end at a bar! Highly recommended this property, had a great stay.

    Delighted to hear you both had a great stay, together with your three lovely dogs. Property Owner

  • "A lovely stay that could do with a few tweaks - the location is idyllic, quiet, and sweet."

    The house has been finished to a high standard - both modern and traditional with some unique quirks and is very pretty. However, facilities let this one down a little and unfortunately we wouldn't return. Dogs having to be kept on ground floor only means the use of the two further floors is quite ruined unless you want to leave your furry friends alone for the majority of your stay. But there isn't a sofa in front of the fire and tv - just two seats meaning cuddling up with your human other half isn't possible either. Taking the dogs out for a night-time toilet will prove difficult if their recall isn't great, as the front garden has no enclosure and leaks onto the main road. Whilst the kitchen is newly refurbished, small tweaks such as the tap barely reaching the middle of the sink causes a water explosion on the side, but no drain rack, kitchen roll, or cloth is provided to account for this. There is a dishwasher - but only one singular tablet is left (and this isn't mentioned) But washing up by hand isn't suitable either, as you're left with one mini-sponge only and no rack to dry your washing. Oven and tray is provided, but again only one singular line of foil is left. No hand sanitiser, wash, or spray to leave the cottage clean and fresh before our departure. We did feed this back directly to the owner with no response unfortunately. Dog friendly? possibly not, but perhaps dog-accepting would be better suited. Overall - it IS a lovely stay. I would recommend, but would note the above, but wouldn't return myself.

    Thank you Christina for your full and thorough feedback. Apologies for not replying to your personal email, but we were taking in your feedback to see where we could improve and which of your comments were just things that didn't suit you personally . There is a dish-drainer on its way as yes ,totally a valid point, oh and by the way it's never been mentioned before so thank you. Regarding wash, spray etc we do not expect our guests to thoroughly clean the cottage as it is cleaned to COV19 standards upon your departure. To just leave it tidy is all we ask - our cleaning company take care of all the rest. It has always been on the Sykes website that dogs are to be kept on the ground floor and yes its open at the front - just like the photos show. I would assume any dog owner would keep their dogs on a lead when let out in a new area regardless of recall? New area - lots of scents? This is very open country. Once again, thank you for your full and informative feedback p.s. Christina, the tap is moveable it can be moved to any position over the sink? Property Owner

  • "Enjoyed a great week in this lovely, nicely renovated cottage."

    Milk in the fridge and flowers on arrival and the owner popped by to answer any questions we had. The large, comfy bed and the bath were particular favourites. Ideally situated for scenic walks and friendly pubs. Will definitely return.

    Thank you Steve, your comments are much appreciated. Property Owner

  • "What can I say, what a beautiful cottage ideal for couples wanting to be together."

    The attention to detail and finish is exceptional-the log burner was well used on our stay, the bath was fabulous, bed was super comfy and so cosy-loved the TV area on the 3rd floor. When I arrived there was milk, flowers and other essentials for us and the owner introduced himself and checked everything was ok-saw him again during our stay. My partner couldn't be there all week due to work but I felt safe was extremely comfortable and had the most relaxing week. Everything is on your doorstep, incredible scenery, walks and very friendly people. We loved it and will be back to stay again later in the year-thank you so much-your cottage is beautiful you couldn't have done anything better.

    What can we say, we are overwhelmed as your review is the epitome of what we aimed for when we started renovating the derelict property into a holiday cottage. All we want is for our guests to enjoy the cottage, the area and to feel comfortable and relaxed which you clearly did - for us perfect feedback - we would be honoured to to meet you again when you return.

  • "The bath needs a shelf on the wall, it was frustrating to have to keep getting up to get shampoo etc from the windowsill."

    The bath did have a tray, however when I take a bath I don’t like the tray. A microwave would have been appreciated, especially when you’ve been out all day and want something quick. Other than that it was 5 star.

    Thank you Veronica for your feedback and giving us a 100/100 score! Property Owner

  • "Absolutely beautiful cottage, refurbished to a very high standard with lovely attention to its heritage ."

    Everything clean and tidy and well stocked with wood . The bath was just special sited at the end of the bed :-) . The dogs loved it too. My only error was I thought there was a garden ( assumed table and chairs were out the back ) but it didn't really matter as the internal doors kept them downstairs , there was a field over the road and lots of space to enjoy and the underfloor heating was well enjoyed ! Really memorable experience. We will be back

    Thank you Anastasia! Who needs a garden with acres and acres of countryside in every direction from the door ; - ). Glad you had chance to enjoy the bath and that the dogs enjoyed the underfloor heating. Hoping to see you soon. Property Owner

    Good location with walks from the door. In a week in February we were able to have a number of varied activities, all very enjoyable. Think it would be difficult not to have a great stay in this cottage.

    Renovated to a really high standard, with luxury touches whilst still retaining a homely feel. Loved the cinema room ! Kitchen was well equipped, again everything done to really high standard. Owner called to check everything was ok. A nice touch we thought. Milk, biscuits, tea and coffee provided was a lovely touch also. Would highly recommend and will be returning later in the year .

    The owner has taken the time to add some really nice special touches - like milk tea and coffee on arrival. There were even fresh flowers! It is one of the cleanest places I've ever stayed. And it's a perfect place to explore the peaks - I cannot recommend it more. The log fire and bath are particular highlights. As well as the top floor cinema room Will definitely visit again

    Good base for exploring the surrounding area too. Particularly enjoyed Victoria Tower at Castle Hill, Marsden Moor and Standedge Canal.
