  • "We had an enjoyable stay in Eastry Cottage despite some truly awful weather."

    The cottage was cosy, spacious and comfortable for two adults and two sizeable teenagers. It could do with a larger pan, but that's a minor gripe. No problems with parking and an excellent location.

  • "Third stay at Eastry cottage for us."

    It is a fantastic location for all the village amenities including plenty of pubs and restaurants. Lots of walks off the doorstep and easy access to all the local caverns. A lovely comfortable cottage and will no doubt be back again in the future!

  • "We very much enjoyed our stay at Eastry Cottage."

    The location is excellent with about half a dozen pubs in a 5 minute walk and for 3 days we were able to go on hikes straight from the front door. The house is very homely with comfortable sofas for an evening in. The kitchen could do with a large frying pan and one or two larger saucepans for cooking. What is there is all a little small so cooking a meal for 4 is not as easy as it might be. Overall we thought is was a really nice place to stay and would recommend it as an excellent base for exploring the Peak District.

  • "We had a lovely holiday in Castleton."

    The cottage is beautiful and well equipped. It had everything we needed for a comfortable evening after a day out walking. We particularly liked some of the artwork, including some striking prints. The location of the cottage is perfect, right in the middle of Castleton and next to the well known Cave Dale, so as well as longer walks we did the little two mile circuit of walking up Cave Dale and back round to the village several times in the week. The one piece of advice I'd give is about eating out. If you prefer not to cook each night and want to eat out in Castleton it might be a good idea to plan this ahead of your holiday and book tables accordingly. We found this difficult with many places fully booked. If this happens, we recommend the takeaway pizzas from 1530, and one day we had excellent fish and chips, though this had to be lunchtime as the fish and chip shop isn't open in the evening. Altogether I wholeheartedly recommend this cottage.

  • "Perfect location, very pretty and well fitted cottage."

    Loved the rear deck/platform and also appreciated the high standard of bed, mattress and settees and that everything we needed in the kitchen was there. Only personal negative is that I would have preferred not to have such a large amount of air fresheners in the property. I ended up putting them all away in a cupboard, and they really weren’t needed. We had a lovely break, very relaxed, and would love to return.

    Also a lovely surprise to find milk and eggs in the fridge! My 6 year old said the house had two things he’s always wanted… a secret garden and a bedside table! I agree it had both! Thank you

  • "This is a brilliant cottage in an amazing location."

    Castleton is simply stunning and the cottage is perfectly situated right in the middle (perfect for both walks and pubs). The communication before arrival was timely and helpful, and the cottage itself was incredibly well-stocked with both maps/guides and every utensil imaginable (and fresh flowers!). The patio was especially enjoyed (amazing to have views of Mam Tor!) and we would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to others.

  • "Absolutely fabulous find."

    We were there for a week of walking. The cottage far exceeded what we expected to find; the owners even left milk and eggs in the fridge which was handy as we forgot both! And the beds were comfortable, which is something you can rarely say

  • "We have stayed at Eastry before and had a lovely stay, but this time around the shower was broken and at 6`5" tall a standard bath is next to useless."

    On arrival the house was clean but the kitchen utensils and general kitchen cupboard items where dirty, all needed fully washing taking up the first few hours of the stay.

    The shower had regrettably been broken prior to your arrival and we could not resolve it in time for your stay but did let you know and apologised in advance. The bath is indeed a standard size and we're sorry if this was not suitable for you and of course we would not have known that at the time when advising you that the shower was broken which unfortunately this was outside our control. Sykes also send out a contact number pre arrival to guests if they need to raise any concerns and they also have a dedicated phone line for guests staying at a property. The property was thoroughly cleaned before your arrival and we take pride in the cleanliness, as can be seen from the many positive reviews we receive. We're sorry that you didn't contact Sykes at the time with any concerns for us to be able to discuss this with you at the time. Sykes also sent you an email inviting you to discuss your feedback further with them and also left a voicemail recently asking you to call them, regrettably you have still not responded.

  • "Good location."

    There is one parking space but cottage is on very narrow lane, so we found it difficult to park and easier to leave car. So hard to get back in space especially at weekend as the lane gets very very busy with cars Instruction manuals left for appliances but not very easy to follow particularly cooker and gas fire. Gas fire kept going out on it's own. So we didnt trust it. Although owner did assure it was safe. Wifi connection good,

  • "We loved Castleton and especially enjoyed our hike."

    Eastry Cottage is located right near the entrance to Cave Dale, a ravine/dale often a part of mapped walks. The hike up was lovely and a little challenging for us. One caution is make sure you know your route well before heading out and take along a good map that marks the terrain. Paths are well trodden, but not well marked. In December the weather was not too cold, but damp with rain possible for some part of every day - plan for that. Good waterproof hiking boots are a must, as you will be walking on rocky, wet paths. Eastry Cottage was lovely, but not fancy - which was OK with us. We had planned to cook more, but found the availability of groceries limited. Fortunately there were many excellent dining options in Castleton. The host provided some lovely Christmas decorations and fresh flowers on the dining table - we really appreciated that as our visit was near Christmas. There were eggs and milk awaiting us in the refrigerator and served as our breakfast the first morning. The kitchen provided the basics as far as pots, pans, dishes, utensils and included 2 kitchen towels, dish soap, salt and pepper, instant coffee, tea bags. We did not find the extra silverware and dishes until we were leaving. Look for that next to the dining table. We were thankful for the washing machine - as we got very muddy in our hikes. We arrived by public transport (train to Hope Valley and bus to Castleton) and managed without a car, but I got the sense that most vacationers in the village did have cars.

  • "We had a great week in Eastry Cottage, a real rest which is just what we needed."

    When I walked through the door I thought, 'I could live here', which I rarely feel with holiday lets, and I got a real sense that Rebecca and her mum genuinely care about their guests and do what they can to help. The downstairs room is spacious and comfortable, the kitchen small but adequate, and the bedrooms again comfortable (we stayed in the twin rooms and the beds were too hard for us but I notice in another review another guest appreciated this so it's a matter of taste!). The house was warm and welcoming and while the decoration is a bit dated we really felt at home and that we could switch off and enjoy the area. I will recommend to friends. Thank you.

    Thank you. The flowers were a nice extra touch.The bed was comfortable so we slept well. WiFi and TV reception was good, and the new hob in the kitchen super-efficient and easy to operate. The little patio garden offered a secluded sitting-out area but the very steep steps were rather precarious for the elderly. We very much enjoyed our week in the Peak District and would be happy to recommend Eastry Cottage to other holiday makers.

    The location is second to none, just a couple of minutes walk to the shops, the pubs or many famous walks; the Cave Dale route is literally 30 seconds from the front door. The owners were really friendly in their communications and everything worked like clockwork for us. An excellent sun-trap garden area completes the perfect cottage experience. I'd love to go back, and would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to anyone else. The complimentary eggs and milk were a lovely touch and provided a much needed breakfast prior to tackling Mam Tor.
