  • "Great cottage to stay in, we needed for nothing."

    Clean and very comfortable. Situated in a lovely location for long and short walks. Easy access to Buxton and Bakewell. Local amenities are excellent. Couldn’t be faulted.

    A belated thank you for your lovely comments. It gives us great pleasure to know our guests have enjoyed their holiday. Property Owner

  • "It states there is a garden which there is which having a dog is a reason why we booked."

    What it doesn't tell you you have to go out of the back door unlock a padlock to enter it. Which isn't good late at night plus no grass all stones. Also a washing machine but no washing line just a little airer in a cupboard on the top floor. Previous guests have mentioned the carpet needed cleaning which hasn't been done plus stains on the sofas very off putting.

  • "Surprised to find the curtain lining in the living room so dirty when we arrived!"

    We had only come out of lockdown less than 2 weeks before, so these should have been spanking clean prior to guests arriving. The nest of tables were very old, and the leg dropped off the smallest one when we pulled it out to use. The toilet brush was disgusting and should be replaced very regularly! The cottage otherwise was nice and clean. Directions to get to the key pad and door could be clearer, we walked about a bit trying to find it!

  • "I have to say this is one of the best cottages I've stayed in, very much a home from home."

    Comfy beds, great shower, smart TV, very well equipped kitchen with everything you could need for a week away, bonus of tea, coffee etc & cleaning things - less for me to take next time. Perfect place to explore the Peaks, walks from the door & not far off the bus route for none drivers. I will be back

  • "This was one of the nicest holiday cottages we have been in for quite a while."

    They thought of everything! Even the little back yard had fairy lights at night! We hope to book this one again.

  • "This was our first walking holiday and first 'dog' holiday too."

    The owners have equipped the cottage with exactly what was needed.Small things also were provided that were not expected like a flask and a picnic blanket at our disposal which although not used, were lovely extra touches. Overall, it was very comfortable for the amount of time we were in the cottage itself, which was most evenings after a day out and a meal at one of the local pubs. Owners have supplied extras to the TV packages as well. The location was spot on with good local amenities. Definitely recommend this place for a break.

  • "The cottage was lovely, perfect for our neeeds, comfortable, warm and cosy even though the weather was cold and wet."

    . I was just very peeved to discover too late that I'd booked it accidentally with the American agency 'Home Away', for which priviledge I paid an additional £36, instead of with Sykes, who dealt with the booking, key collection details, indeed everything really. Home Away did nothing but take my money as far as I can see I don't know how it was that I found myself on their website placing the booking with them not you, and I appreciate this was a case of my 'buyer beware' as I didn't know you also place your properties with other agencies Lesson learned, but it left me feeling rather bitter.

  • "Really lovely cottage in pretty village well placed to explore this wonderful area."

    Past reports of uncomfortable sofas have resulted in new ones being installed. It seems The Dispensary’s owners act on previous comments and improve this property each time an adverse comment is made. Easy to find, central location close to two pubs, good chippy and useful Co-op pop up store (usual one being upgraded). Highly recommended and good value.

    Very comfortable property. Good facilities within to make it home from home. A Co-op nearby was really useful.

  • "Cottage was good but uncomfortable sofas and small garden bur weather cold anyway so didnt get used."

    not impressed with the village it was in, didn't feel we were on holiday as nothing to do on a night unless you drove out of village and when you have been driving all day to visit places it's not what we wanted to do. Rubbish pubs and food in bradwell Wouldn't go back to peak district.

  • "Nothing went wrong but; the two small sofas were the most uncomfortable items of furniture I have ever sat on."

    .....the amount of pigeon poo on the front doorstep showed it had not been cleaned in a long while. Also the amount of building work going on in adjoining properties with drilling and banging not six foot from our back door and having to negotiate builders vans etc to get to our parking space just took the edge off our stay.

  • "The accommodation is well placed at the centre of the village, handy for shops."

    It's also well placed for walking and lovely places of interest. It took us a little while to find the car parking space.. we had to park at the Co-op and investigate on foot. The cottage is a little dark and I think it would have been a bit claustrophobic if the weather had not been so good, ensuring we could get out. The bulb had gone above the television, meaning it was difficult to see clearly to do my knitting! The seating was not very comfortable.. one of us lay on the bed rather than sitting on a sofa for any length of time. The kitchen was well-equipped, though a cafetiere and a decent bread knife would have been desirable. We're novices with televisions and never did get the one downstairs to work! Overall, we enjoyed our stay very much. We've mentioned the negatives in order to help make the place better, but there were more positives than negatives.

The picturesque village of Castleton is three miles away, home to fascinating caves, including the Blue John Cavern, and is overlooked by the crumbling Mam Tor or 'Shivering Mountain'. The dramatic scenery of Winnats Pass and Edale in the Edale Valley, famous as the start of the Pennine Way, is nearby. Hathersage is just four miles away and has excellent cafes and an open-air, heated swimming pool. Slightly further afield you can potter around the historic market town of Bakewell, or the Spa town of Buxton, renowned for its spring water, opera house and arts, jazz and opera festivals. It is easy to spend a whole day at Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall, whilst there are many historic properties nearby. Pull on your boots and enjoy the spectacular scenery, or explore a web of cycling trails, with bike hire available on the Monsal Trail, the Tissington Trail and at the Derwent Reservoir.
