  • "Guidance to the location of the property would have been useful."

    The "Welcome" folder had all the technical information on the cottage's appliances which was useful (although the microwave has since been changed). I would have appreciated information of the villages's facilities (shops, where can we eat out etc). The cottage was very clean, the bed very comfy. The cottage had all the facilities and utensils that we could need.

    Details about how to find and access the cottage shed be sent to you in advance, I will check on this with Sykes directly. Useful to know that you didn't have the details. Pre covid we provided a comprehensive welcome folder with all the shops and amenities in the area. We will put it back into the property. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful cottage in a perfect position."

    Close to facilities. Carefully decorated to create space with bold pieces, whilst maintaining a cosy feel. Everything you could need had been thought about and included. Would definitely like to return to Bank Cottage.

  • "Bank Cottage is small but perfect for a couple or, as in our case 3 adults."

    We found it to be clean, comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. The king size bed was particularly comfortable. We enjoyed the character of the house with the thick walls, window seats and the steep staircase and plenty of the original features still there. The fridge is quite small but we do like to cook so for others who want to eat out more it is probably sufficient. The cottage is in a great position with good views, little traffic and also within an easy stroll of the shops and footpaths leading out of the village. We would definitely book another holiday there in the future as the situation is also ideal for exploring the Peaks and Dales and one week is nowhere near enough. We didn’t need to ask anything of the owners but it was reassuring to have their number available if needed.

  • "We had a lovely holiday at Bank Cottage (leaving aside the weather which did not cooperate)."

    The cottage was very cosy - very well equipped kitchen and we liked the wood burner. Parking just outside the door and a 5 minute walk to a co-op. And access to the Peak District …. Chris could not have been more helpful.

  • "The location of the cottage was perfect in a beautiful little village within walking distance to restaurant, pubs village shop etc."

    The cottage itself was lovely with everything we needed for our stay but unfortunately was let down by its cleanliness. Whilst there was a notice saying everything had been cleaned and wiped down as a result of COVID, it was evident this was not the case. There was sticky food residue on the dining table, a ‘gritty’ substance on the coffee table shelf, black mould in the shower that should have been wiped away as it was not stains, and dirty make-up removal wipes on the floor in the main bedroom. To have to clean and vacuum the property on our arrival was not expected and was very disappointing. One last point to make would be to move the fridge into the kitchen under the stairs as not easy to get to in the cleaning cupboard with a very low doorframe and down 2 steps. We had quite a few bumps on our heads! Quite awkward to get to.

    I was sorry to learn that your stay at Bank Cottage failed to meet your expectations.  Most guests find the cottage to meet, or exceed expectations.  It is useful for me to know of problems with the cottage during your stay as it means I can put things right straight away.  High standards are something we set and try to maintain.  As I sent you a message on the evening of your arrival to make sure everything was ok and you confirmed it was, I am surprised and disappointed to receive your feedback. Your experience was a cause of concern for me and I have addressed most of the points raised.  I am unable to move the fridge from the cave, the low door height is clearly signed.

    .Appreciated supplies of milk etc. but thought 1 1/2 toilet rolls a bit mean. Wouldn't be without the washer drier, but would like a plastic airer/drier to hang clothes up on a nice day (£17 in hardware shop down road).Would also like a rail above or on radiator to help dry towels as heated towel rail is not very big.

    It should be sleeping 4-5, making clear that while another person can be fitted in, it could only be a child in the bedroom ( and a very tight squeeze) , or someone, for a night, in the sitting room

  • "Bank Cottage is a lovely cottage in a lovely village, ideal for those with dogs wishing to go walking in the beautiful surrounding countryside."

    It didn't bother us, but the cottage is on quite a steep hill. Like all villages in such areas, the streets are narrow and parking isn't ideal, but we managed. There is a local Co-op store that is well-stocked, and a couple of decent pubs that are dog friendly and serve food. The cottage was lovely with an excellent kitchen, apart from the lack of food storage (there is a small fridge/freezer and no cupboard space to speak of) and comfortable living room. A door (to keep the dogs downstairs) leads to the stairs, which are quite steep. Upstairs is one decent size double bedroom and another that is a bit of a squeeze, and a bathroom. The bathroom has no bath (not a problem for us). I found the shower a bit small (I'm 5'11" and 13 st) and the lighting a bit dim for shaving. None of the concerns were significant enough to be a big problem, just minor niggles. We stayed over Christmas, and the owners had gone to the trouble of putting a tree up and enough decoration to make it "Christmassy" without going over the top. Overall, a lovely cottage with everything you need for a walking holiday in a beautiful area. We would certainly go again,
