  • "Nice cosy cottage."

    Comfy beds. Plenty of utensils..pots and pans in the kitchen. There is a small utility area attached to the kitchen which has a large fridge freezer and washing machine. Unfortunately the cooker broke down for us..I contacted the owner and she was extremely helpful and apologetic and arranged a new cooker to be delivered and fitted the next day..this didn't spoil our time there ..we went out for the day while the owner came to sit in and wait for the new cooker to arrive and be fitted..thank you Emma.

    Thank you for the positive comments. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay despite the breakdown. Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed our stay in the cottage, great location."

    From the house we walked to Thorpe Cloud then onto Dovedale stepping stones. From there across several fields to Illam village and walked around the National Trust property there. We also rode our bikes from the house to the Tissington Trail and Carsington Water! Unfortunately the local pub The Dog had not reopened due to the restrictions, maybe next time.

  • "The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped, with thoughtful extras provided."

    Flowers greeted us when we arrived, and the milk and biscuits provided enabled us to have a welcome drink before we unpacked the car! We appreciated the large fridge and freezer. The three good bedrooms suited us perfectly, and we appreciated having a downstairs loo as well as the bathroom with bath and shower. The parking space was easy and convenient - we were the only users in the week we were there. The cottage is in a brilliant location, in the centre of the lovely village of Thorpe, with many walks from the door, including Thorpe Cloud and Dovedale, with Ilam close by in the valley below. We would love to return.

  • "As a family of 5 adults, we stayed at Cherry Tree Cottage."

    We were all very happy with our stay, the house was clean and comfortable and a great base to explore Dovedale and drive to other Peak district areas and walks. The beds and bedding were comfortable and we all slept really well. The kitchen provided all we needed and the lounge sofas were comfortable and the 'fire effect' fan heater was more than enough to provide any extra warmth. All in all we really enjoyed with our stay, I would recommend Sykes Cottages, it was easy to book and be kept updated on the booking and information was provided to make for a positive care free experience. This Cottage we really liked, it met all our needs and we hope to get an opportunity to return. Highly recommended.

  • "The cottage was warm and well equipped."

    Beds were comfortable and a good bathroom. The extra downstairs toilet was also useful. It was good to have a backdoor into the utility area, especially as boots became very muddy. There were some nice extra touches such as the Christmas tree, the stairs decorations and the torches in the bedrooms. I liked the fact that there were a number of good walks from the cottage itself without having to drive. Overall my family and I had a very positive experience.

  • "Whilst Cherry Tree Cottage is in a great location for exploring the Peak District it really needs some work doing on it."

    Also the cleaning wasn't particularly good, the heating is restricted and can't be overridden and the garden badly needs sorting out with branches knocking on windows in the night. I wouldn't want to stay there in the winter but summer would be okay.

    Thank you for your feedback, I am sorry that the holiday didn't meet your expectations this time, As the owner who cleans the property, I taken your comments onboard for future guests. I would have been more than happy to come and re clean any areas that you not happy with, if you'd have told myself or Sykes about the issues. Thank you for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely family break at the cottage."

    We were delayed on the motorway by 4 hours it was a very lovely to reach the cottage and find a carton of milk and tea bags - needed that! The owner had left sufficient information of all the facilities around there. There was all the basic facilities for self catering. It was close to Thorpe Cloud. We managed a day at Alton Towers and a lovely cycle ride we hired some bikes from the information that was given. The neighbours were friendly and helpful. We would go back there again!

  • "We as a german family of five (three nearly grown-up children aged between 17 and 21) had a fantastic time in this stone-cottage in the tiny beautiful village of Thorpe."

    The location was just marvellous for us for walking the lovely british footpaths in every direction (Ashbourne, Tissington, Ilam,Mapleton, Dove Dale, Hartington....) and we loved to see the pyramid of Thorpe Cloud every day just before our doorstep. The cottage was very clean, had comfortable beds within the three bedrooms and an additional toilet downstairs. The direct neigbours were very helpful & friendly and the car could be parked easily next to the back entrance and was only needed for driving further away to other destinations in the Peak like Bakewell, Hathersage (walking in the august-heather!) or Alton Towers (not far away!). We would all like to come back some day!

About the location


Matlock 14 miles, Ticknall 24.7 miles, Bolsover 33.5 miles

Lying at the southern end of the Peak District, Ashbourne is a perfect example of an English market town - market place with stalls, eccentric street plan, narrow cobbled alleys, coaching inns and almshouses. In its heyday in the 18th century, the town was a fashionable social centre and many fine Georgian buildings remain from this period. Today the town still has much to offer in terms of restaurants and inns and is regarded as something of a haven for antique hunters - but don’t expect a bargain! For those who prefer more outdoor pursuits, the Dove and Manifold Valleys are close by. Alton Towers is just 20 minutes away.
