  • "Wanted to give 5 stars because its such a lovely property."

    Spacious, well equipped and classy. Just the plumbing issue in the main bathroom toilet that didn't get sorted and the fact that it takes the house more time to heat up because of storage heaters (if the house was not occupied before the stay) means this doesn't get top marks. Otherwise, a beautiful location and a beautiful house.

  • "Hilcrest is an absolutely beautiful house set in the peaceful village of Longnor."

    The countryside around is breathtaking and there are ample walks and cycle rides right on your doorstep. The house itself is beautiful too. It’s a Grade II listed building with many period features and stunning views from every window. Every facility is provided for and it is comfortable and clean. Many sights and attractions are within an easy drive and nearby Buxton has everything you need in terms of supermarkets and other necessities. We had a few little issues while we were there and we contacted the owner who came out straight away while we were out for the day and fixed everything without question so that our stay was no impacted at all. I would definitely recommend Longnor for families and couples looking for a peaceful, idyllic getaway in one of the most stunning places in the UK.

  • "Lovely cottage."

    My 4 year old was absolutely smitten and never wanted to leave. We loved our stay and having access to a hoover and cleaning products made it much simpler to be on holiday with 2 4 year olds.

  • "We had a really enjoyable week in this lovely property; it was very clean, comfortable, well maintained and its location in the peaceful village was excellent."

    We parked right outside all week without any difficulty and enjoyed using the local shop, wonderful chippy and excellent restaurant, as well as the great local playground. We found some lovely walks direct from the property and it was a perfect base to travel around the Peak District to nearby attractions. Many thanks to the owners.

  • "A rustic, charming, beamed cottage, very close to the centre of Longnor."

    It is clean and well equipped with a spacious separate kitchen, lounge and separate dining room. Owners were communicative and helpful. Tea and biscuits left to welcome us on our arrival. Parking is on road, either outside the property or on the nearby Market Square. Longnor, a jumble of lanes and interesting characterful properties, offers opportunities for many wonderful walks in the Peak District/Staffordshire hills and valleys, there are several routes starting from Longnor, avoiding the need to drive. The village has pubs, cafes, a corner shop and a great fish and chip shop. We will return!

  • "A great place to stay with easy access to walks from the door."

    The cottage was warm and clean on our arrival. There was everything we needed in the spacious kitchen for making meals and eating in. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms spotlessly clean. We enjoyed a meal out on the Saturday night in the Merchant House just a minute from the house. After each of the walks we had a good pint in a couple of the different pubs in the area, The Sunday afternoon was topped off by a bluegrass group playing in the Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese. We had a lovely relaxing weekend without needing to get in the car as we had everything we needed on the doorstep. Highly recommended.

  • "We did not think the cottage merited four stars."

    Yes the furniture was comfortable but the heating system is antiquated and needs seriously updating. The heater in the en suite was not working and the owner was completely unconcerned when we phoned to report the fact. There is no instruction book for the cooker. The cottage appears unloved and uncared for. The oven was dirty and the cottage needs a thorough spring clean. There was no access to the back yard where a gutter or overflow was dripping badly in heavy rain. The information book in the sitting room is out of date and we were extremely disappointed to discover when we phoned the owner to check that there were no recycling facilities available. We are frankly amazed that Sykes are prepared to tolerate this. In the end we brought the recycling home with us. We do not support putting clean recyclable material in the general rubbish and are surprised that you do. I await your comments before I consider booking with your organisation again.

    Thank you for taking the time to let me know your thoughts, feedback is very important to us and is normally very positive. The heating is electric as there is no mains gas in the village, this is as described in the details. This is set to optimise the heat in the cottage so it should never be cold. I apologise that the heater in the bathroom wasn't working, I was unable to provide an electric heater for the bathroom due to safety restrictions as advised and couldn't get an electrician out at short notice. Your comments regarding cleanliness will be passed on to the cleaners however, the feedback regarding this is usually very good. During your stay we experienced two storms which would account for the guttering overflowing, this was out of our control. The recycling information has been updated but the rules surrounding this are made by the local council. Thank you once again for your comments, we will take these on board. Property Owner
