  • "Lovely spacious cottage with good quality finish inside and out."

    Perfect and unique location with great views and walks on your door step. Close to Sheffield and a great base to explore the Peak District. Loved our stay would highly recommend for families that like exploring.

  • "Beautifully clean property in a lovely setting."

    Very spacious and comfortable property. The main double bed was a bit hard for us but other than that, we didn’t have any problems at all. It had everything we needed and was spotless. The addition of an electric car charger on site was an excellent addition and much appreciated! Walks from the property were beautiful and further afield there is so much to explore.

  • "Chestnut Cottage was the first of The Old Sawmill cottages we stayed in."

    It was just prior to Christmas and the cottage was decorated for the season with a lovely Christmas tree. Chestnut Cottage was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The space has been cleverly designed and is well equipped and nicely decorated. It was warm and cozy despite the cold weather. Walks from the cottage are lovely. We appreciated the gated entrance and the ease of parking. We would happily stay at Chestnut Cottage again.

  • "Beautiful property Everything was very well provided for."

    A manual for the electric fire would have been useful! Beds very comfortable but the VERY large duvet in the middle room was weird! The shower was far too powerful and resulted in a flooded bathroom floor The welcome booze ,milk etc was very thoughtful 2 smaller coffee tables instead would have been more practical but all in all a beautifully comfortable place to stay We will certainly use it again

  • "Absolutely beautiful property, so big inside and so cosy."

    We absolutely loved our last minute stay here after ‘original cottages’ failed us with black mould in one of their advertised lodges we then booked this lovely SUPER CLEAN, great location, quiet and perfect for dog walks! We will most definitely stay again. I’ve booked through Sykes many times, this lodge has been the one with the most useful facilities, literally have everything you could think of for self catering!

  • "Chestnut Cottage was a perfect place to stay with the family."

    Plenty of room and well equipped for our stay. Beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. Outside was a patio with wooden furniture and it was such a lovely peaceful setting . Our youngest grandson loved the Gypsy caravan and wooden animal carvings! A wonderful place to stay.

  • "Thank you so much!"

    We had a fabulous stay at Chestnut cottage. It was everything we hoped for and more. Your cottage is beautiful. It was so clean and nicely decorated, and the facilities were great. It met our needs perfectly. Thank you for the cheeky Prosecco too! The grounds are stunning- gorgeous location with the setting, but also the way the cottages are set out, with the Romany caravan and sculptures, and grassy areas, and benches outside. Nicely done. We really really didn’t want to leave. The kitchen was really well supplied with everything we needed, the TV was fab and easy to use, and we loved the books and games you had too. The settees and beds were comfy, and the bathroom facilities were great. Powerful shower, and everything felt so clean and new. It was the first time we’ve ever taken our doggy on holiday, and we were a bit nervous, but it honestly couldn’t have been better. Thank you so much, and we will be telling everyone how wonderful your cottage is!

  • "The most amazing place!"

    The surrounding areas are beautiful. The place itself is private with a gate to get in and out so you feel safe. Cottage itself is outstanding, the decor is lovely and cosy. They really have thought of everything you need, down to hooks on the back of the door. There’s heating and an electric fire so no cold nights. I’m so sad I’m home and cannot wait to go again! Oooo also a complimentary bottle of Prosecco and biscuits.

    We really appreciated the extra effort to add a Christmas tree and decorations. It was spacious enough for a family of five and was well furnished. We will definitely be returning in the future

  • "Excellent property which was well equipped and in a great location for walking."

    Only feedback would be to look at whether a shower room could be created in the property to complement the main bathroom as one bathroom for 3 rooms was a bit tight.

  • "Absolutely beautiful little gem of a place."

    Incredible location, stunning surroundings and a high calibre property. The cottage had everything we needed and more, as well as having a free to use electric vehicle charger which was a welcome surprise! I would have no doubts about recommending this place, or one of the three cottages at the property to couples, families or groups. As a side note, it had the most powerful shower I’ve ever experienced in my life. It was wonderful. Imagine Karcher making showers instead of pressure washers and you’ve pretty much got it! :))

  • "This is my second stay in the cottages here - first time in Chestnut Cottage."

    It worked really well for 6 of us and we were very grateful for the dog washing facilities and the EV charging. There are a few things that I hope are useful to mention - the bathroom door could do with adjusting so that it doesn't have to be closed with such force - not good in the middle of the night, also the smaller of the two double bedrooms needs the door hinge oiling/WD40 as it is very squeaky - again not good at night. We really missed a bread knife, kitchen scales would be really useful and it would have been good to have more than 6 of each cutlery item so that we didn't have to wash up at each meal.

  • "We loved Chestnut Cottage, despite the photos on the site walking into the cottage for the first time was a lovely surprise."

    The cottage was larger and nicer than we expected, although the photos did portray the cottage accurately. It was very cosy and warm and well furnished. The cottages are tucked away between 2 reservoirs and the location is very quiet...but very near to Sheffield and the Peaks...for us a perfect location. In fact, we have booked again.

Renovated to a high standard, this former workshop is perfect for families or groups of six seeking an unforgettable escape to the countryside.

Open up the pretty barn door and step inside this bright and homely abode adorned with colourful green furnishings and gorgeous red accents, where you can spend your evenings lounging on the plush velvet sofa as you watch an entertaining movie on the Smart TV, or cosy up in one of the armchairs as you warm your feet by the electric fire.

Gather with loved ones at the round oak dining to play a board game or two, or crack open a bottle of wine and begin to map out all of your upcoming adventures.

A few steps away, a contemporary white-gloss kitchen can be found boasting a sleek electric oven and an induction hob, as well as a handy washer/dryer and a dishwasher, providing a wonderful space to bake tasty treats and prepare many mouth-watering meals throughout your stay.

Completing the ground floor is an airy cloakroom with a basin and WC, whilst a large family bathroom with both a spacious tub and overhead shower rests on the first floor.

Tuck the children into the quaint bunk room as you send them off to sleep with their favourite bedtime story, before retiring to one of the two inviting doubles, each decorated with traditional country-style furnishings that add to the properties charm.

Make the most of the summer sunshine as you indulge in lunch alfresco out on your private patio, or enjoy a gentle stroll down to Broomhead Reservoir, stopping off at The Castle Inn for a refreshing pint upon your return.

Venture into the neighbouring town of Stocksbridge and discover a sea of pubs and restaurants to wine and dine in.

Spend your days exploring the Peak District with scenic strolls along the Longdendale Trail or exhilarating hike to the top of Margery Hill and High Stones.
