    Unfortunately; the standard of hygiene of the previous occupants were not of a high standard within the kitchen as we found it necessary to clean all utensils etc prior to our use. An issue of low mains water pressure was quickly dealt with by the owners.

  • "No hot shower (when we complained, some strange story was told about water pressure due to dry weather (end of October with continuous massive rainshowers."

    ..)). Hot water was running from the tap though so something else must have been going on. Nothing was mentioned about this in the information on the website, just a piece of paper in the kitchen at arrival :-( Roof in sitting area was leaking, lights in extractor hood did not function, very (too) small kitchen table, just big enough for two plates, only electric heating that needed to be switched on and off all the time Wifi had hickups and was very slow. We think this property should be suspended from Sykes until these issues are taken care of. No more Sykes for us!

  • "Lovely little cottage in the heart of the Peak District."

    Lovely location and close to the big climbs and everything was there that you need for a great holiday. On a working dairy farm so was lovely to see sheep and cows next door. The cottage was small but cosy and would be perfect for two people. Everything was clean and the sofa and the bed were super comfy. The bed sheets of sheep were so cute where I might have to buy a set for myself. There were two little dogs that visited the garden from the farm and the little black one in particular was adorable-I nearly took her home! I would love to have a bath and that’s the only thing this property didn’t have but I knew that when I booked but apart from that-perfect! Thank you for a lovely stay and I hope to visit again soon.

  • "We had a lovely time in Garden Cottage."

    Very cosy. Good location for walking. The listing on Sykes refers to a possible problem with the shower. The cottage is on a working dairy farm, and when they are milking they use a lot of water. Water pressure to the shower in the cottage is reduced during this time. But this really not a problem, you can still have a perfectly adequate shower when they are milking the cows. The local pub, The Wanted Inn in Sparrowpit, is closer than the Sykes listing suggests. Daylight permitting, you can easily walk there by footpath and avoid the rather busy road. At the time of writing, the Sykes listing for Garden Cottage is showing some old pictures of the kitchen. This has been up-dated since those pictures were taken, with a new cooker and new kitchen units. The owner, Mr Morten, is a really nice, friendly guy.

  • "This sweet little cottage was perfect for our short honeymoon."

    It was warm quiet private and the perfect place for two people in love. It shows signs that other guests have not treated the place with care and respect but the owners are not to be held responsible for that. It is a working dairy farm in a rural location, we were warned that water pressure drops at specific times as the milking operation draws a lot of water, but anyone would have to be an ignorant selfish town dweller to complain about that; you are on holiday, so work around those times or book into a Travelodge. This is a sweet cosy cottage, if you are over five feet four you will probably bump your head going up or coming down stairs... the clue is in the word cottage. Overall, this is a superb little place, we were sad to leave it after five days. Its location is excellent as it is only 30 minutes from Manchester airport, barely more than five minutes from Buxton. An excellent holiday cottage that was better thanI had hoped.

    The cottage is set in beautiful countryside with all the interest of the farm animals nearby. Easy access to many walks, rocks, caverns, reservoirs, gardens, castles etc. The cottage itself has two hazards! There is a step up from the entrance and lounge area up to the dining/ kitchen area, which can easily be forgotten . Perhaps a strip of white carpet tape could be placed on the step to make it more visible and obvious. There could also be a warning sign for the stairs. It is necessary for tall people to duck or they would bang their heads!
