  • "The property was cosy and comfortable, however, it could have done with a private outside space."

  • "This well equipped cottage was a real find."

    Lovely views from the door, quiet location. We loved our stay there.

  • "The holiday was idyllic, both property, site and location with plenty of choice walks with our small dog."

    We will return to the Peak area in Sept.

  • "Saw a couple of poor reviews but we were blown away with this cottage and it's location."

    Very cosy , not a mark inside and we have booked again end of August. For dog walkers you can literally walk out your back door into the beautiful dales.

  • "The apartment was small but ‘bijou’ and the facilities were excellent."

    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.

  • "Absolutely lovely location and a wonderful holiday let."

    Only down side was the noise from the upstairs guests could be heard. When they were walking around it was very loud. You could hear them using the toilet when in bed and the drainage for the bathroom ran through the bedroom so woke me up every time they flushed the toilet.

  • "Lovely, cosy apartment in a stunning location - perfect for our long weekend exploring the peak district with our dog."

    The apartment is small but has everything you need for a stay and enough space for the three of us. Some lovely small gestures such as milk in the fridge, dog towels and guide to local walks. The outside terrace area is shared but we didn't use this much as it was very cold - absolutely breathtaking views. A short drive to Longnor (a few minutes) where there is a cosy pub, fish and chip shop and general store.

  • "The property is situated in a beautiful spot and was very cosy."

    Well appointed and had everything you would need for a short stay. It was easy to find with good parking area. We were aware of footsteps above us, but luckily the guests above were on the same timings as us so for us it was no problem. We enjoyed our break and would be very happy to recommend it to others.

  • "Beautiful location, peaceful and relaxing."

    Cottage was very well equipped and very cosy. We didn't need to use the underfloor heating even in October. Owner was very welcoming and allowed us to use a spare field to exercise our labrador, who thoughly enjoyed the rural location. There was even a special basket of dog related items provided , including the all important towel and area to wash off a mucky hound ! Gorgeous views would highly recommend.

  • "The scenery was idyllic, the cottage was wonderful very warm and cosy on December nights, there was even a little Christmas tree and decorations the bathing facilities were wonderful the kitchen was packed with every utensil you would require from beans on toast to Sunday roast."

    We will definitely be visiting again and cannot recommend this property highly enough.

  • "Secluded rural location with miles of walking from the door."

    Furthermore, a brisk walk for about a mile also finds friendly local pubs and other amenities in the nearby villages. Cottage was beautifully appointed with everything we could need and perfect for coffee on the terrace taking in the views. Wish we could have stayed longer.

  • "The holiday itself was fantastic and the hosts were brilliant."

    Very friendly, responsive and accommodating. The reason for my low score is the email deluge from Skyes cottages. If you limited your emails to those relevant for my holiday, and maybe 1 marketing one weekly, then I'd have scored you a 9 or 10

  • "We had a really lovely stay however, as we were staying next to the family home, it would have been nice for the owners to have popped their head in on our arrival day to say hello."

    We also had to hoover the sofa and foot stool as it had dog hair on it presumably from the previous guests, hence the slight deduction on cleanliness score. The rest of the cottage was immaculate. This is really picky feedback and it didn't stop us having a lovely relaxing stay. The cottage was beautiful and had all the amenities we could have needed. The biscuits and milk on arrival was a lovely touch.

  • "The cottage was very nice and cosy."

    The furniture was comfortable and the owners were friendly. The cottage was easy to find and the local pub was very tourist-friendly. The only thing to be aware of is that the underfloor heating is a little too efficient and takes a long time to cool down. We spent one night with all the windows and door open trying to get cool air in. It's a shame that there isn't a washing machine but there isn't room for one.

    Great location, very peaceful but near to everything too with a car. If you want views book Lapwing or Larkspur as they have views from the windows. Curlew doesn’t really but it’s still a lovely place to stay.

    Reviewed by KarenDec 2018

  • "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.

  • "The position and environment were fantastic."

    From a personal view point I think (in a walking environment) a washing machine would have been a more pressing need than a dish washer. We also went out and bought a fan to cool the place, but that was purely due to the fact that it was the hottest fortnight in most people's living memory. But these are very minor issues. We had a wonderful time in a beautiful setting.

    The accommodation complex they have created is very cosy and comfortable. The location beautiful and we had a layer of snow which set a pretty scene. Loads of walks and bike routes. The local pubs served excellent food and the local village shops have a fair supply of previsions. We may well return to continue walks we did not get time to do. And try some of the bike trails.
