    It was well equipped but I would’ve liked some cloths and scourers to be left so that I could clean when we left. The side of the property has uneven steps and due to lack of lighting, I did fall and injure my knees. I was disappointed to see that the lack of lighting had been mentioned by previous guests 3 months previously, but had not been mended/fitted. The other problem, which is not the owners fault, is that the neighbouring cottage has two Jack Russell type dogs that were left out each night to bark incessantly. The neighbouring cottages garden, which is your view from the bedroom and kitchen, can only be described as “Steptoes yard” full of rubbish, scrap metal, gas canisters and toot which is a real shame. There was also dog poo in the courtyard.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know your thoughts. We always leave cloths and scourers in the property so we are sorry you didn't locate these. The switch for the outside light is located inside the property and this was checked before your arrival. Unfortunately one night a fox cub was stuck in the courtyard and was crying which the dogs heard and set them off barking. This also accounts for the poo in the courtyard. Please accept our apologies for any disturbance caused and thank you once again. - Sykes owner relations

About the location


Matlock 5 miles

The village of Whatstandwell sits beside the River Derwent, located close to its better known neighbours of Cromford, Matlock, Matlock Bath and the popular village of Crich. The area, located in the Peak District National Park, is full of history, with the National Tramway Museum a particular favourite amongst visitors to the area. Matlock, just a few miles away, offers a range of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as attractions such as Gulliver's Kingdom. Magnificent views of the gorge can be enjoyed from the cable car that takes visitors up to the Heights of Abraham - a great place for all the family with its show caves, nature trail, water gardens and owl maze. The nearby High Peak Cycle Trail provides a wonderful experience while further to the north the market town of Bakewell, Chatsworth House and Park, Haddon Hall and Carsington Water are not to be missed!
