The narrow steep stair is really quite challenging (steepness rather than the open treads) but otherwise the cottage is in a great location, has all you need and the host very helpful
“What a lovely place, absolutely everything you need for self catering.”
Beautiful views, a real sun trap. Ideal place for touring the peaks and days out. We will come back to the cottage and stay again without any hesitation. Allan and Liz
“I was looking for somewhere quiet and isolated to get on with sme writing and managed over 14,000 words.”
The cottage is delightfully situated. I spent most of my time there working in the conservatory and enjoying the lovely view. Thanks to Dinah Johnson for the warm welcome. The cottage has every amenity you can think of and everything is very compact. A very civilised hideaway.

Lovely holiday cottage fab location owner very friendly would return and recommend this cottage ideal base for walking and exploring the Derbyshire dales
“Very cosy cottage and very well equipped.”
Perfect for our dogs and us. Lovely to stay in the winter with snow on the hills, beautiful views from the cottage
“Easy to find what we wanted as there were so many options.”
“It was a wonderful location with spectacular views and very safe for the dogs.”
The cottage was warm, cosy and very clean with delicious homemade jam and marmalade to greet us.. We will definitely return for another visit.
“Lovely location and cottage comfortable.”
Description accurate, but narrow steep stairs and the fact we like to stay at different cottages means we would not book Burr Cottage again.
“Although not suitable for infirm guests, the stairs are easily managed by anyone with reasonable fitness.”
“Top little cottage”
We stayed here for 2 weeks with our dogs there are walks from the door cottage has got everything you need for your stay. We will be returning for another holiday. The owner is very helpful.
Stayed for a week in this quirky cottage. on arrival the owners greeted us along with their dog, very friendly. Inside it is very compact with a very steep staircase, thankfully as advised we only had holdalls. Upstairs again is compact with significant room for everything, with a small bathroom. A nice touch was the welcoming chocolates, along with tea etc. to get you going. It was nice that we had use of the garden our two dogs got on well with the owners dog, plus you had access to a field if you wished for your dog's. We had a lovely time here and on a dull day it is comfy enough to relax. The views from the cottage was lovely being in an elevated position. Burrs cottage is an ideal location for walking even from base. We will be use burrs cottage again,would definitely recommend it.
The cottage is small but lovely. Very steep, narrow steps to the second floor...but worth the climb to reach the spacious bedroom and bathroom. The location is idealic and beautiful. The local pub is friendly and serves delicious food. We had an incredible stay...as did our dogs! We hope to return again in the near future!!
We and our dogs were made very welcome, it was nice to feel that the dogs were welcome visitors, not just tolerated. The owners were on site to meet us and gave us a short but comprehensive guide around the cottage and the gardens and grounds, which we were given free access to. Burrs Cottage proved to be the perfect holiday stay for us, handy for all the walking areas of the Peak District, the views from the cottage are exceptional, especially so from the bedroom window, waking to that was an absolute joy. The cottage was very well equipped and lacked for nothing except perhaps a few cushions on the chairs. There are some very good pubs and restaurants nearby, Fish and Chips and a late opening store in Tideswell(5 mins in car). One note of caution, if you can't manage steep stairs this is not for you, we thought it contributed to the charm of the place, and we will definitely be visiting again
“Perfect little cottage”
We had a lovely week at Burrs Cottage. In an ideal location, close to all the Peaks has to offer but also secluded enough for perfect peace. The down stairs is very small (but contains everything you need) but was quite surprised how bright and roomy the bedroom seemed. Very comfortable bed.The only slight concern to people maybe the steepnes of the steps, they were quite difficult to get up and down. The owners who live next door were extremely friendly and most helpful but did not intrude at all during our week. Not much in the village of Gt Hucklow itself but neighbouring villages of Foolow and Eyam are just perfect. Had a wonderful week, especially the dogs. Will definitely visit again.
Very good little (and I mean little!) cottage with helpful owners based next door. Seating not overly comfortable for people who suffer with bad backs but satisfactory. Bed was lovely though! Beautiful views from front of cottage across some lovely countryside. Have to be very careful of steep staircase but once you get the knack of coming down backwards all is ok. Would certainly recommend for a fit couple of people. Our dog certainly enjoyed the locale.
My husband and i wanted to get away to celebrate our 33rd wedding anniversary and we couldn't have found anywhere more perfect! we knew from the description the cottege was going to be small but we were both taken back by how cute it is and how the owners had managed to fit it out so perfectly. The views are amazing, the local walks breathtaking and the local village very friendly.
Perfect little hideaway for 2 people. Very cosy and comfortable, local pub excellent and several others within easy driving distance. Nicely central for walking
“A real gem”
We booked this cottage pretty much at the last minute for a three-night break. We received a warm welcome, which included a dish of chocolates and milk in the fridge, along with some home-made jam and marmalade. Although very tiny and with a perilously steep wooden staircase, the cottage was very well-eqipped and thoughtfully laid out. Despite the cold nights and a fall of snow, the wood-burning stove kept us beautifully warm. There was a positive library of guides and maps, which told us all we needed to know about the area, and a real bonus was being able to walk directly from the front door without having to use the car. The view from the conservatory and from the bedroom is extensive and lovely. We felt that this cottage was one of the most charming and delightful places we have stayed in, and great care had been taken to provide for our comfort and relaxation.
A compact little cottage,made very welcome by the owners who live next door,ideal for those who enjoy walking,and when you return in the evening there is nothing better than sitting out side with a glass of wine enjoying the view and seeing thesun go down.
Absolutely fantastic. Couldn't be faulted. Can't wait to return.
A delightful cottage in an idyllic location. The accommodation was bijou, but there was everything we needed to make our stay really comfortable. The views from the cottage across the valley were fantastic. An ideal location for taking the dogs. Central for touring places of local interest - Castleton, Bakewell, Buxton, all within a short drive. Hope to return again soon. Highly recommended.

About the location
Bakewell 8 miles; Buxton 11 miles.
The peaceful, idyllic village of Great Hucklow lies on the border of the distinctive landscapes of the Peak District - the limestone dales of “the white peak” and the gritstone moorland of “the dark peak” - thus providing wonderfully contrasting walking country.
There is a village pub serving food and interesting beers.
The village holds its traditional well-dressing and gala day in the second week of August and has spectacular lights at Christmas.
Neighbouring villages are Eyam - “the plague village”, Tideswell - home to “the Cathedral of The Peak”, and Bradwell - historic lead mining village and gateway to The Caverns and The Pennines..
