  • "The property was not clean in places."

    The placemats had coffee spilt under them on the table. The table had grooves in it and there were crumbs and debris in them, food was left in the cupboards from previous occupants. Black mould was present in the first bedroom and the shower room. We had children coughing through the week and an asthmatic with us who also coughed when in the property.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry that you experienced these issues. I have referred this back to the maintenance and cleaning team and the mould has been removed and the cause repaired. New extraction fans have been installed and a damp roof membrane in the walls. Once again, thank you for taking the time to send us your feedback. Property Owner

  • "Location perfect, was a bit tricky to find, enough room for 2 cars to park."

    The boot/coat area where you first go in smells very strongly of damp. Our coats smelt if this. The main rooms are very welcoming and once we had the heating up was warm and comfy. The bedrooms are both a great size and the o suits were nice. Although not having a main bathroom makes it difficult for whoever is sleeping on the sofa bed. It’s advertising 2 sofa beds. there is absolutely no hope of being able to use both. There just isn’t room. When we pulled out the sofa bed, it was filthy. It hadn’t been hoovered or cleaned for some time. The mattress was pretty good, but marked and needs replacing. Bedding and towels provided for all beds were clean and fresh. Superficial cleaning was ok, but look deeper and this place needs investment in the cleaning. It’s an old place, so I do expect a few spiders and cobwebs. But the main dinner table needs a very good clean, so do behind the sofas and beds. And a generally good high clean above head highly. Cooking facilities were very good. Everything you need, washer and dishwasher a great addition. Pubs a couple mins walk away along with cafes for breakfast. We would definitely stay again as the cost and location fitted us. But it does needs a bit of an upgrade with the sofa beds and cleaning. And also lack of windows for ventilation made the place very stuffy. But overall a great place.

    Thank you for taking the time to write such detailed feedback. Since your stay, extraction fans have been installed and a damp roof membrane in the walls. We will certainly look into the other issues you have raised like the mattress. I have consulted with the cleaning team and ensured that for future guests they are addressing the points you have raised. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and really hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely girls' weekend away."

    The facilities are excellent and the property is clean to a high standard. It is in a good location and plenty of parking. Negatives are the property is very dark and smells of damp, worse in certain areas. We were unable to open the sky lights to let some air in. Saying that the temperature was only set at 12 degrees on arrival. I would say this is a property for 4 adults not 6.

  • "We enjoyed our stay here but it was only as a 2 night B&B with the main entertainment being with our family group using the Mill Managers House next door."

    Had we had to provide full self catering facilities, it would not have provided the space necessary for 5 persons of adult size. 3 of our group were continually banging their heads on the low roof trusses. Convenient storage space was at a premium. Beds were comfortable and WiFi worked well. The shower room in No1 bedroom was in need of TLC as the drain did not work to capacity so that the 20mm deep shower tray soon filled up and tested the sealant which failed miserably and soaked the adjacent skirting board. The sophisticated shower system only worked as a basic overhead spray. The control for the body sprays and hand held wand could not be operated. The wand tubing was covered in a thick brown grime which fortunately hung out of the way at the side of shower controller. A couple of convenient coat hooks on the door would be a useful addition. This Shower Room let the whole place down but having said that, the other shower worked to specification once you had learnt how to select the settings. There was always plenty of hot water. The property is quirky and novel in many respects and well worth a visit although the so called front of the property will disappoint as the picnic/BBQ and car park area has little privacy.

  • "When we found the property we found it a lovely apartment."

    Please signpost as the sign says staff parking not holiday cottage here which threw us off. The apartment was lovely, but please replace the knives which weren’t very sharp ( I even used the sharpener which was rubbish ) lots of parking, a few minutes drive from gulivers and a very short walk to the canal. We had an issue with the cleaning which I felt was felt with professionally. Basically there was a strong urine smell in the master bedroom, not sure if it was the mattress? Bed or on the floor? Also when we were packing up and checking under the beds we found medical needles under the bed, can someone contact me about this please and I can share pictures. I would strongly suggest to change cleaners!!

  • "We had a lovely stay at the Carriage House, it's beautifully decorated and the location is fantastic."

    Everything was working and was clean, although we did find the odd dog hair in the beds (none of us own a dog). The only issue we had was the size, we were a group of 7 and I think we were just too many to fit. There wasn't space for 7 on the sofas, so we had to sit on the floor, and fitting around the table was hard without rearranging the living room. There were also some windows in the bedroom and living room without curtains, so we were woken up by the light. But even considering this we had a really lovely stay, and would definitely recommend it either to smaller groups or to larger groups who don't mind a bit of discomfort.

  • "Property was beautiful, quirky, clean and comfortable with all the facilities that you would need being on holiday."

    Manager of the property was very helpful. It was very nicely located with canal walk that morphed into the Sheep Pasture Incline (part of the Dales) round the corner, and within half to an hour drive from beautiful villages such as Matlock Bath and Buxton, and stunning Winnats Pass. However, although the property was meant for 7 people with 2 sleeping on 2 sofa beds in the living area, there was not enough room for both sofa beds to be completely laid out. Without a toilet in the common area, people on the sofa beds have to use toilets in the bedrooms which is not ideal. Handles on the toaster and lid on the shower room bin were broken/loose but still usable. With only 1 window and 1 skylight, the lighting in the living area can be improved with more occasional lighting. We had a great stay and I would highly recommend Carriage House especially if the group is smaller or don’t mind being in each other’s space. Thank you for a lovely stay.

  • "Great holiday base with lots to explore on the doorstep (without needing the car) if you are interested in industrial history (or just beautiful country)."

    We did a lot of walking and outside activities due to Covid. Cromford has a range of small independent shops - including a famous bookshop and an amazing chocolatier with chocolates made on the premises. Cromford Mill has a lovely cheese shop which also sells locally produced biscuits, cakes and other treats. Also a butchers/deli, post office and small general store in the village just a couple of minutes walk, and also pubs/cafes/takeaways. Well equipped flat with everything you need. We also had a call from the housekeeping company to confirm bed layout before we went. The flat was very clean with plenty of loo roll for four people (mentioned in other review). Having off street parking was great (wedding shop mentioned in other reviews was closed, so no one else was attempting to park in the car parking area). Blinds are fitted to the velux windows in the bedrooms now - a criticism in some earlier reviews. The wheelie bins had migrated up the road and were outside the Mill Manager's house. The owner responded very quickly to an email to confirm they were the ones to use for our rubbish. We really enjoyed our holiday - thank you!

    The flat has a cosy interior but space for 6 of us. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and the dishwasher and washing machine came in very useful. We had a slight issue with the lock but the owner was quick to respond and resolve it. The dining area is perfect for a group meal and the sofas and sofa bed are comfy. The whole place was in great condition when we arrived, and we had a phone call from the cleaning staff before we arrived to ask how we wanted the beds arranged. The location was great, perfect for exploring Cromford and heading out on walks further afield. Just a short drive to Matlock and the big Sainsbury’s. Perfect stay, we will definitely come again.

    The village is a very short walk away with some nice pubs and restaurants. The mill complex over the road was really interesting and there are lovely shops/ a cafe. With a few tweaks the accommodation could be amazing. The main issue we had was lack of ventilation/ windows. We stayed during a heatwave and it was unbearably hot, especially as the kitchen/ living room area has no windows that open. A few basics like tea towels were missing from the kitchen, several cups and glasses were chipped and the pans and trays were dirty and had to be rewashed. Nothing major and we still had a brilliant time!

    Also, property was advertised as having parking for three cars yet the parking for the property is now also customer parking for the business located downstairs, which we were not made aware of. There was one evening where people where in the property downstairs making lots of noise and banging, late at night when our children were in bed. We chose the property without being informed via the listing that there is a business below and had we known we may not have booked this property.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at the Carriage House."

    The accommodation was clean & tidy with a fully equipped kitchen (fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine). Both bedrooms were comfortable with clean bedding & towels provide. Each had an ensuite (1 with shower, the other shower/bath). Ample parking space for 3 cars, the front car area is the only outside space (table & bbq) but this didn't prove a problem as the surrounding area has ample places to use and we did sit in the front area in the evenings without disturbance - the wall shields you from the road/public path. The ground floor is used by a local business (wedding planners) but we had no issues/noise and only one customer used the parking area which was not a fact you wouldn't know they were there. The only slight issue were the sofas...this has been raised in previous reviews, but to be fair the weather & area meant we were out most of the time & a couple of pillows/cushions & covers on them proved adequate to watch TV. Also, the living area does not have a window you can open to allow air flow - there is a big window for natural light (both bedrooms do have windows that open ). However despite the very warm weather during our weeks stay, the building was not overly would be nice to have had a window to open however this maybe down to building restrictions. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would recommend the Carriage House as a great accommodation and good area for easy access to surrounding places of interest too.

  • "The Carriage House is in a brilliant location and has been decorated and fitted out to a high standard but unfortunately the second bedroom and bathroom were not made up/ready to use and the cleaning was minimal, which surprised me with the current Covid situation."

    There were quite a few cobwebs, unclean baking trays and it felt that the bear minimum had been done. The bin lid was also broken. The bedding was clean but so old, with buttons missing and split pillow cases and it very much needs replacing. The TV aerial in bedroom 2 didn't work and the sofa beds are so uncomfortable that we actually left a day early as we couldn't spend another evening sitting on them - after a day of walking a comfortable sofa is very much needed. Luckily the beds were very comfortable. A business has opened up underneath and so the parking area/outdoor space is now a customer car park and was not as described - luckily we had one car and no trouble parking but on several occasions the business owners were parked too and so if we had more than one car, or wanted to enjoy a BBQ, this would have been problematic. The location is fantastic but we were disappointed. We have stayed at many other places and the little touches that make an o.k. place great were unfortunately missing.

    Thank you for your feedback. We do apologise for any disappointment caused regarding the cleanliness of the property, we now have a new cleaning team. We have also replaced one of the sofas in the property. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is lovely, with a fantastic mix of old features."

    We particularly enjoyed the kitchen. The location is great, within about 20-30 min drive from some great walks, and Cromford is very pretty. We were a little surprised there was a lack of some basic facilities for such an otherwise well stocked kitchen - no corkscrew, no cooking oil, no tin foil. In the bedrooms, while the beds were really comfortable, there was a skylight window in both which doesn’t have a blind - meaning we were all woken up earlier than we’d have liked by the sun. I would suggest getting a blind for these, as it was really quite irritating. Also neither tv in the bedroom worked, despite getting instructions on how to put them on. The cottage itself was a little cold, especially when we arrived which was about 11pm. We couldn’t get it to come on to the temperature we’d liked, perhaps radiators need bleeding after the summer, but again this would be something we’d suggest looking at. All in all a great place and a good price, but some small annoyances preventing it from being perfect!

    This is the eighth self catering we have used in England and was the first that did not have basic supplies such as dish soap, salt, pepper, extra toilet tissue, sugar and enough tea and coffee for a couple of days. The beds were very comfortable, however the leather sofas in the living area were hard and away too low to be comfortable to sit on for any length of time, especially for us Senior Citizens. We had to bring out the pillows from the beds to make them comfortable enough to sit and watch TV. I would recommend getting rid of at least one of them and putting in a couple of easy chairs that are higher off the floor. On the whole we enjoyed our stay and liked that it was close enough to things that we could walk where we wanted to go, even though we had a rented car. R. Junkin

    The only dampener for us was the uncomfortable sofas, as we had children we came back on an evening rather than go out, we enjoy watching a film or TV, the smart TV was a great set up for this but the sofas meant we found it very uncomfortable to sit for any length of time, I think these were chosen as sofa beds to maximize the amount of people this cottage could sleep. I wouldn't advertise this for 7 people its quite fine for 5 but any more feels crowded as we had 2 people come over who stayed nearby and found this to be the case.
