  • "The cottage needs alot of tlc Bathrooms need a full refurb Living room fireplace is cracked and very damaged needs replacing Kitchen top has been fitted wrong so water runs off onto you and the floor."

    The door into the garden once opened needs a lot of help from outside to get it shufridge/freezer needs replacing. A smell of damp as you work in.

    We have recently weathered three Amber storms, which brought tremendous amounts of rain, the west facing door has taken the brunt of the storm but is being dealt with to ease the opening before drying out. We cannot account for the 'counter top run off' as the counter top has been fitted to a level position. Smells can sometimes be difficult to identify but our fridges are throughly cleaned.

  • "What a lovely cottage, so well appointed and everything you could want, for a delightful stay in the Peak District."

    Tracey, the owner, was incredibly helpful and even replaced the DVD player when it seemed to be faulty. It was an extra bonus to have a lovely big paddock to exercise the dog first thing in the morning and last thing at night. Altogether an excellent find!

    That paddock wears you out when going around so many times on so many days, the video day was a great idea. New DVD replaced in cottage. Property Owner

  • "Although the property’s interior was fairly worn and some of the decor could do with freshening up it was cosy and most of what we needed was to hand."

    Perhaps this was due to us arriving at the end of the season and a refurbishment plan is scheduled for the beginning of next season? The “blu-ray” player didn’t play Blu-ray Discs and we had several instances of it not playing anything - to be fair Tracey did come round on the first occasion that we had trouble with it but it seemed to have righted itself by then, we put it down to overheating so each time it “froze” we switched it off for 15 minutes and tried again - the sound system never did work. We were a bit surprised that there was no recycling bin on the property as most places we have stopped in recent years have been insistent on recycling. Otherwise the facilities were all good and there were a few unexpected little extras supplied which were a bonus. The site is a bit remote so very cold when the temperature dropped but there is no shortage of heating appliances- it’s remoteness also meant that you needed to travel to obtain staples like bread and milk, ( there is no shop in the village), but the owners did supply a little starter pack just in case we forgot anything, which was appreciated. The information booklet was very thorough and Tracey was at pains to let us know that help was just a call away if we had any issues. One little niggle was the cutlery, it has seen better days and needs at least the knives and forks replaced please. We had a nice restful stay at the property and had the weather been a little warmer we would have done more rambling around the gorgeous countryside surrounding Primitive Mews but unfortunately we are city folk and don’t cope well with the extremes of cold weather, we chose cosy hibernate instead.

    Thank you for your thoughtful feedback. We will take a look at those 'little niggle' items and address them to improve the experience. It is as you say 'remote, without local shop and rambling countryside'. We hope you enjoyed that experience. Property Owner

  • "This little cosy cottage is ideal for visiting all the lovely attractions in the peak district."

    The cottages was lovely and warm which was great as we had very mixed weather (expected in November). The village pub was superb and offered a fabulous range of homemade and rather large meals. We went to the quiz on Monday and were welcomed by the locals even when we won. The paddock was a great bonus and our dog Skye absolutely loved it.

    Winning the local pub quiz is no easy task, well done. Happy to hear the cottage and surrounding area made you welcome. Property Owner

  • "A lovely cottage, very comfortable and almost everything you need was provided."

    We had asked for an optional (free) safety gate to be provided to stop our small dog from getting up the stairs as dogs are specifically forbidden upstairs, however this was not present. The bathrooms whilst perfectly functional, could do with some work on the shower tray sealant as this lets down the score due to its current state. Phone signal is extremely poor, however that is Derbyshire all over so not a fault of the owners, but a Wifi extender to allow a signal in the lounge and upstairs bedrooms would also benefit any future occupants. Overall, pleased and would return to this cottage in future.

A real plus point being two double ensuite bedrooms, so perfect for two couples on a walking holiday. Buxton and Bakewell very accessible, but really everywhere in the Peak District is on your doorstep. The Church pub at the top of the village is a real bonus as well.

    The location is a small village in the Derbyshire Dales just a short drive from Buxton which is a beutiful place and offers a wide selection of restaurants and other facilities. The Church Inn is just a few minutes walk away and is to be recommended for food, drink and ambience. The only downside was that the wifi signal can be a bit patchy and you need to walk to the adjacent Primitive Meadows for a phone signal. No problem though- the scenery is breathtaking.

    ... The main room is very small, very dark with dated decor and oversize TV for such a small room, we didn't enjoy sitting there. Internet was super weak and was bearly catching any signal only in 2 spots it was impossible to do anything and no reception to make any calls. Bedrooms were very basic and there was quite a lot of dust in the corners and on top of the frames plus big spiders in both rooms!!!! . There was no cleaning products except the washing up liquid no bin bags no kitchen paper no silver foil for the oven no ice cubes trays . Kitchen had a fair selection of equipment and we had a standard toast bread milk and biscuits but all very basic it would be nice if those products were local or better quality . Overall the property was very average I would give it 2/5 and it didn't meet our expectations and it was expensive for what it had to offer , we left few days earlier and we will not be coming back to this cottage.This is our honest opinion maybe it will inspire people to make improvements.The village itself was charming very quiet and rural.

    I am sorry to hear of your disappointment in your cottage stay. This property is photographed and represents well the interior and exterior of the property. Having met you twice I am sorry you didnt take the opportunity to tell me of your concerns, though you mentioned that you were leaving early from your stay due to work commitments. This is a self catering home and we do not provide cleaning products and are not allowed to during covid regulations. The starter provisions of toilet rolls, hand soap, washing up liquid, a loaf of branded bread, milk, a packet of biscuits, a tin of beans, coffee, tea and sugar is to ensure you have something available on your arrival not for the complete stay. The bedrooms are of a comfortable size as this is a cottage not a modern building. Again, we are sorry for your disappointment and hope your next choice meets your expectations Property Owner

  • "Very comfortable and mostly well equipped (there was no dustpan and brush, for example)."

    The second bedroom bed size, a King, was too big, resulting in very narrow access down each side. A pair of 27" single beds with shared central bedside cabinet would work better. Excellent having access to the linked fields for dog walking, as the small garden was not really usable and, with plastic grass, needs to be swept clean. I would have done this myself but no tools were available. There is a damp problem around the sink base unit in the kitchen, possibly caused by having 2 separate circular deep/shallow SS bowls, with the tap fitted directly on the work surface. Water runs off the front edge easily, and damp has affected the base unit. A standard 1.5 bowl combined drainer unit would work better.

    For guests with dogs this is deal. Despite going during lambing season the fact that there is private land without livestock in which to walk the dog is a huge bonus. It's plenty big enough for a short interim exercise time or a ball throwing game. The local pub is also dog friendly. Walking through deepdale is wonderful but appropriate walking boots with ankle support would be required due to areas of very rocky ground. Don't try it with shoes! The cottage is very comfortable, clean and of a nice size. If I was absolutely forced to make criticism it would be that there were no tongues to turn the bacon and sausages.

We had a slight problem which Carl dealt with very quickly, despite it being after midnight! A wonderful week away home from home. You will enjoy!!

  • "A very comfortable and spacious barn conversion in a lovely village."

    The owners gave us a wine reception on Friday eve, and gave an interesting talk about the area. Would like to try out the other adjoining cottages in the future also.

Primitive Mews

Three delightful stone-built Peak District cottages found in the peaceful village of Chelmorton, within easy reach of the popular spa town of Buxton and the market town of Bakewell. Showcasing a lovely renovation of a traditional stone barn dating from 1837, these fantastic Peak District cottages skilfully blend original character and contemporary styling, with exposed stonework, stone flagged floors and en-suite bathrooms, whilst enjoying an idyllic village position. All three cottages have the use of a shared grass paddock with a feature wooden castle for children to play on. Adjoining the paddock is a three-acre meadow to enjoy, with a flowing grass walkway, perfect for safely exercising your dog off the lead or enjoying family games. There are benches available for you to sit and relax on and take in the picturesque views around Chelmorton. The surrounding area offers great walking and cycling and an abundance of wildlife, from Deepdale to the summit of the Low with its prehistoric barrows, which is also well-known for its September 1000ft fell race. Perfectly placed for all that the National Park has to offer, these Peak District cottages really do offer a magnificent holiday retreat.
