    The cottage however dropped well below your usual standard. The kitchen and bathroom needs updating also the cooking equipment

    I apologise you didn't feel the cottage was up to standard. I will purchase new cooking equipment for the cottage. Property Owner

  • "Fantastic location, right near the start of Dovedale and also close to start of the Tissington Trail."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean on arrival and some tasty scones provided. That said, it was not up to the standard we have come to expect from Sykes in a few areas. Comfort-wise it was a tad spartan (although warm enough!), but some of the appliances and fittings need to be replaced. The shower only just worked with a good deal of fiddling, and some of the bathroom fittings are broken. The cooker is on its last legs. Kitchen equipment needs updating - no bread knife, no side plates. We had a great holiday due too the cottage location but the owners need to give it some more TLC!

    Plenty of space for cooking, relaxing or doing a jigsaw away from the TV. We had a really lovely time at Cloud View and thought it was very good value for money.

    Thank you for visiting our cottage, we are extremely lucky to have the walking areas that we do. Property Owner

  • "Excellent area for walking."

    Everything was warm, clean and tidy. The house was not suitable for 6 adults; the small bedroom had 2 single beds and 1 was a camp bed. Also, the lounge only had seating for 5. However, we booked last minute and managed and were glad to find somewhere and we had a great break with our friends.

  • "Cloud view cottage is absolutely wonderful."

    I Stayed with my friend and our children, four in all. There was ample space around the cottage for us all a nice dining table and six chairs so we could all sit together. Also a dishwasher! A novelty to us. The garden was lovely and the conservatory furniture was super comfortable. The cottage is situated within walking distance to the stepping stones of dovedale and what a wonderful walk it is to get there and lots of BIG hills to climb with wonderful views around. Thors cave is just a short drive and a definite must see. We would love to return one day. Oh and Louise left the most delicious fruit scones we have ever had in the fridge for us

    Thank you very much for visiting us. Property Owner

    Great location, on the edge of Thorpe, really peaceful but close to local towns and attractions. Pictures don’t really do it justice. Our second visit here and definitely not the last.

  • "My parents rented Cloud View Cottage in the village of Thorpe for two weeks over Christmas 2022 and the New Year."

    Family members stayed there at different times with my parents during this period and I can honestly say we thoroughly enjoyed our break there. The cottage was spacious and clean and we all especially liked spending time in the small conservatory that backed onto the rear gardens. The surrounding countryside was beautiful, as was the little church nearby, and we had some lovely walks around the local area and beyond. Cloud View Cottage is dog friendly which made it even more accessible for people to visit. The owners who lived close by were friendly, helpful and amenable to any requests we had. We did feel the cottage would benefit from some general updating to increase it's appeal. For example, some of the mattresses were uncomfortable to sleep on due to the springs being felt on top. One of the bedrooms had folding guest type beds which weren't substantial enough for a good rest, and the cooker was very old. Despite these few points, we all enjoyed a lovely family break in picturesque Cloud View Cottage.

    Wonderful walks from the front door, and the grandchildren checked on the chickens in the lane every morning. Made a couple of suggestions on making it even better - a few additions to the kitchen. Owner lives across the lane and left us alone, but is there if needed. We hope to visit again!

    Welcome drink appreciated. Property ideal for fantastic walks and within easy reach to several towns. Could do with more cooking dishes in the kitchen (pots and casserole) and also water and milk jug. But was delighted with cleanliness. Also appreciated being left alone though owner lived nearby. Would certainly be back A lovely friendly cat visited daily. Gorgeous creature - especially if you like cats as we do.

  • "On arrival, we were greeted with scones and mini chocolate eggs for the children."

    A lovely touch. Louise was very helpful and responded quickly with some queries I had before arriving. I felt there could be a few more kitchen utensils such as a bread knife, and large saucepans would have been great. A mirror in the main bedroom would be good too. A glass broke in the dishwasher but Louise was very kind about it. The adults loved being able to chill in the conservatory and watch the children play in the garden in the day time, and it was perfect for chilling in the evening. The location is stunning. Very quiet and close to Ilam Park and Dovedale. Would definitely recommend.

    Thank you for your feedback, more utensils purchased and a movable mirror in the main bedroom. Thank you for visiting. Property Owner

  • "Property is dirty, garden is not fully enclosed and owner refused to accept feedback when contacted through Sykes privately."

    Shortly after arrival, we noticed that the downstairs toilet seat was dirty, when lifting it the underside of the seat was covered in brown and yellow spots! We then found a cheese like substance on a kitchen cupboard, crumbs and grease on work surfaces, the fridge hadn’t been wiped, dirty oven, dirty dishwasher, crumbs on the floor, and everything was sticky to touch! We then decide that we’d check the rest of the house. The wooden shelves by the side of the fire were filthy; the TV had been wiped but badly smeared. The bathroom was disgusting, the bath had some water still in it, there was a tidemark around it and the soap dish in the shower was filthy. Someone had left a small part of a bar of soap on a dirty soap dish and behind the sink was black mould. Again, the toilet was unclean too. We cleaned the property thoroughly, which we shouldn’t have had to do, but we just wanted to be able to enjoy our holiday. It should have been clean before our arrival. We mopped the floors and the water was filthy. Our second problem was regarding the garden, which was described as enclosed. We assumed this meant safe for dogs. It just meant there was a fence. This fence did not go down to the ground, there were gaps of approx 10” below the fence, with one larger gap leading to a very large drop down, this is definitely a safety issue for both dogs and children. Our dog disappeared on the first morning. He had gone through a gap into the garden next door, which we know now, but was missing for a while and was very worrying at the time as we were unsure where he had gone. We feel that this property has been neglected all round concerning cleanliness and safety. The list could go on further, no one else should have to spend their money on a very dirty cottage.

  • "This cottage was booked at the last minute, on the day of arrival, due to our original booking being cancelled."

    The cottage was huge, warm and comfortable, with loads of storage space. The kitchen facilities, bedding and towels etc all appeared to be new. We were met by the owner with the keys and a box of lovely home made scones. Inside there was tea, coffee chocolates and milk in the fridge. Very thoughtful. The owners lived nearby and the neighbours and villagers were all friendly and had time to chat if they saw us walking the dog. We were also visited by a little friendly cat and a huge beautiful pheasant. The nearby countryside is beautiful with plenty of walks from the house. Ashbourne and Carsington Water are both very close and well worth a visit. Overall a very quiet and relaxing holiday, we would like to come back.

The property

Ashbourne 4.1 miles.

Nestled in the quaint village of Thorpe, close to the thriving market town of Ashbourne, is this delightful semi-detached home, Cloud View Cottage.

Offering views of Thorpe Cloud Fell, this welcoming abode is a great choice for families and friends looking to escape everyday life and explore the scenic Peak District National Park.

After parking up in the designated parking space, unload your bags within the hall and discover the lounge, featuring a plush settee and two armchairs, perfect for unwinding on as you browse the Smart TV for your favourite series.

As you build up an appetite, move into the kitchen/diner where a great wealth of appliances can assist throughout your stay, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and even a washing machine, so you can pop your muddy clothes on a spin!

A door from the kitchen leads into the conservatory where you can sit back with a good book and enjoy some down time.

When the night falls, head upstairs to find the bedrooms, including a king and two twins, each presented in neutral tones that make the space feel light and airy throughout.

The family bathroom hosts a bath and shower over, so you can decide how best to prepare for the day.

To the exterior of this Thorpe cottage is an extensive garden, boasting lawned sections and an elevated patio at the rear, perfect for enjoying a favourite beverage as you catch the last of the evening sun.

From the garden you can also catch views of Thorpe Cloud Fell, a short climb which is awarded with beautiful views over Dovedale at the top.

Head into the market town of Asbourne, situated four miles away, where you can wander through the cobbled streets and browse a range of quirky shops, before stopping off for a pint and a hearty dish at one of the many friendly pubs.

If you’re seeking things to do without travelling far, take a tour of the wonderful Oswald’s Parish Church or Sudburgh Hall, while walkers and cyclists can embark on journey along the Tissington Trail - a gateway to Dovedale and the Pennine Bridleway, or venture through the lovely park and gardens of Ashbourne Park.

The town of Matlock is 16 miles away and is home to the fantastic Gulliver’s Kingdom Theme Park, ideal for a family day out; you can also visit Derby, a wonderful city with a great selection of shopping facilities and established restaurants, while the market town of Uttoxeter is perfect for those seeking a day at the races.

About the location


  • Matlock 15.7 miles
  • Bakewell 16.6 miles
  • Chatsworth 20.4 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.
