  • "Comfortable and well -appointed cottage close to the centre of Castleton."

    I was a bit worried about being unable to park at the property but only a short walk to and from the car park and I can see that space in Castleton is at a premium! Very little working surface in teh kitchen and I would not have wanted to prepare a meal - luckily we always eat out on holiday. An enjoyable week (apart from the weather!!)

  • "Great cozy home."

    Has everything you need. Bed was so nice and didn’t want to get out. Shower is very powerful which was great. Lovely little hideaway which am sure we will be back.

  • "Nice little place in probably the best position in Castleton."

    Easy access to everywhere but not busy, just people passing on foot to and from Peak Cavern. Parking is 200 yds away so manageable. The house is warm and cosy with everything you need for two people. Unfortunately the neighbour across the road has a 20ft laurel type hedge so it's not as light as it might otherwise be.

  • "Lovely little cottage."

    Clean and well kitted out for 2 people. The car park is literally a minute walk away and the cottage is only a few minutes walk into the main part of the village. Internet worked fine. Good location for walks. We had to take 2 cars due to location of work and the second car was parked in the main visitor car park for 3 nights and it only cost about £8 as I used the app. Would stay at the cottage again if we visited again.

  • "Fantastic cottage on a prime location."

    Every little detail was provided and the owners made sure we knew exactly how to get there and where to park. The ability to stoke up the log burner was lovely on a cold evening although there was central heating so mice and warm. Bed and bedding was so comfy slept like a log. Would highly recommend fir anyone wanting a stay in Castleton, which was also amazing with great walks from the door and lovely pubs, cafes, restaurants and shops.

    The cottage was lovely ,very quaint and had all the facilities we needed for a very pleasant vacation. The cottage was very clean and tidy and the kitchen well equipped. The Bed was very comfortable . There was fuel available for the Wood burner although we did not use it. The central heating system was easier to use. Castleton is a lovely town ,surrounded by incredible countryside. There are lots of nice pubs and restaurants which are Dog friendly within a short walking distance of the cottage. We were fortunate to meet Kevin on the last day and he is a lovely man who made us feel very welcome. We would certainly like to come back and stay again one day..

  • "Property was cleaned to a high standard."

    The bed was comfortable but the pillows were far too soft and flat and could do with some new ones. It was very cold weather whilst we were there and the cottage felt slightly damp. Because there is no wardrobe in the bedroom our clothes felt slightly damp to because we couldn’t fit all our clothes in the drawers provided. We did use the heating but this didn’t seem to make much difference. We used the fuel burner stove too. It would have been nice if there had been a starter pack of logs and things with it being winter. We left coal and logs for the next person/couple to use. The cottage is in a nice location and was quiet but I don’t think we’d book it again.

    Very warm and cozy. Well stocked with kitchen utensils and has everything one would need. Comfortable seating and bed. Excellent shower. Stairs are steep but this is stated. Cannot fault the property and was ideal for 2 adults and our 2 little dogs. The only thing to possibly improve it would be a good curtain by the front door to make even more toastie! Great stay. Thanks.

    This was our third visit and we have been very happy each time. The accommodation is perfect for a mid-winter visit, being warm and compact, and with the addition of the wood burner makes a delightful retreat. In fact we would recommend coming at this time of year, as Castleton puts on a very festive display of Christmas trees and lights. Quite agical.

    And this was useful when the toilet seat came loose and the maintenance chap was easily contacted and solved the problem whilst we were out, so no interruption to our holiday. The only little down note as mentioned by others was the lack of a freezer compartment in the fridge but a minor detail with so many places to eat close by.

    The cottage was cleaned to a good standard and well equipped. Parking is a 2 minute walk from the property, permit is provided. Stairs are on the steep side which could be a problem for those with mobility issues or carrying a heavy bag/case upstairs. Only comment would be there is no freezer or freezer compartment, and due to this we lost some food that we had taken up. I would recommend this cottage.

    Parking (which can be an issue in Castleton) is conveniently nearby and within easy walking distance, as are all the local facilities, meaning many pubs, cafes, souvenir shops and even a couple of shops selling useful things, as well as several great walks and the famous show caves. Great for a couple and their dog for a week away.

    The cottage was clean and as described. Although no parking outside we were able to drop off and the car park is a 2 minute walk. The location is very pretty and perfect for walks around Castleton and surrounding area. It is a short walk into the village where there are shops, pubs, restaurants, post office and chip shop. The cottage is cute and tiny but well equipped. However the stairs are very steep and would present a problem for anyone with mobility issues. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the cottage.

  • "Yes, the cottage and location was great, I think the description of the garden needs to be clearer that in fact there is no garden only a seated area across the small road."

    This is important if you are coming with dogs as you cant just let them out. That said its lovely this cottage takes dogs. The other bug bare I have which really takes the shine off the cottage experience and it seems to now be a regular feature of Sykes cottages is advertising a log fire and not providing the fuel for it! Its an absolute pain, especially with cottages like these where there is no parking, to have to go and buy and lug your logs, kindling and firelighters up the road, especially if you are on your own as I was. If you are on a short break the last thing you want to do is trawl the local shops and spend an hour locating buying and carrying your logs for your log fire. I personally think its cheap and doesn't reflect well on the experience. The cost is minimal and I don't mind paying for over usage so my suggestion is either charge extra for it (its about £10 for 2 days worth) but at least supply a reasonable amount (more than 2 hours worth which is what we got here) for a 2-3 short day stay.
