  • "The drive to the property is a bit steep but the location is superb."

    The peacocks are a delightful addition since our last stay here. This year the weather was not encouraging but we had a wonderful stay. The property is well equipped and more than adequate for two people.

    It was more than adequately equipped with kitchen utensils and cleaning products. The owner was very friendly and responsive with an electrical issue concerning National Grid. Despite the weather we both had a great holiday and would recommend the Curlew.

  • "Unfortunately the cleanliness lets this property down massively."

    The cottage really needs a thorougher deep clean, the dust, hair, dirt and the overall odor of wet dog is really disappointing. The cottage itself is beautiful, situated in a perfect place, but unfortunately our stay had been ruined by the cleanliness. We appreciate this property allows dogs, but if this is the case the cleanliness needs to be resolved, we couldn't even sit on the sofa without a blanket it wasn't pleasant at all and did ruin our stay, we are lucky that we could have windows and doors open due to weather. I would recommend staying here and I would come again if the place was cleaned more efficiently. It is a shame.

  • "Lovely stay in really nice accommodation."

    We loved the location. Made good use of the bbq and the outdoor facilities. We would definitely stay again and would recommend it to others. Minor issues - the wooden bit on the end of the bed means it is too small for anyone tall and made it hard to sleep properly. Also the noise of people upstairs moving around during the night was really loud and annoying and woke us up at 0500 each morning.

    Not really a problem but a slight disappointment.

    The views from the garden were awesome! The location was superb, apart from being lovely in its own right, it was only a 15/20 minute drive from lots of major attractions! Several food/drink pubs within a few minutes drive or walking distance (if you’re that way inclined!). I can see why the neighbours I met were not ‘first time visitors’. It’s unlikely to be my only visit.

  • "We had a wonderful holiday and the cottage was really lovely inside."

    However, one comment I would make is that in the Sykes description ' all of the apartments also come with incredible views of the Peak District' this is just not the case at all with Curlew cottage. Curlew is on the ground floor, which we knew, but there is no view at all from either of the three windows. Two windows (lounge and bedroom) look out onto an old breeze block barn blocking any view, and one window (from the kitchen) looks out directly onto a two storey brick wall of part of the owner's house, blocking any view so that was very disappointing. This is not a criticism of the owners at all, but the description by Sykes for Curlew does need to be changed - or re-worded as it is mis-leading. I don't need this feedback published, but I would appreciate an email back to me at Corinne.diss@btinternet.com Kind regards.
