  • "The location of Galen Croft is excellent and we enjoyed our time in the quiet village of Curbar close to walks on Curbar and Baslow Edges."

    The house is comfortable and very well maintained with an excellent kitchen and bathroom. It would benefit from more guide books and up to date brochures on events in the area. A couple of deck chairs would enable guests to relax in the garden. The lack of wi fi was a problem since we were on a two month trip from Australia but overall the experience was very positive.

  • "Another wonderful stay at Galen Croft."

    The cottage is immaculate, clean and comfortable and the owners are incredibly nice and helpful. Situated just below Curbar Edge so great for walks, including along Baslow Edge and on to Chatsworth. Trying to work out if I can squeeze another visit in this year! Would totally recommend.

  • "This is a lovely cottage that is perfectly situated and is so tastefully decorated."

    Rodger and Judith have done a great job! They are also the most helpful hosts you could wish for making sure everything went well-thankyou both. The banana bread was a lovely thought too! We would recommend this cottage to anyone without hesitation and we will no doubt be back ourselves!

  • "Utterly delightful."

    Would certainly book again - (and pass on details to close friends if they wanted to stay in this area). Renovated to a high standard. Excellent contact with owner about access, etc.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Galen Croft."

    The communication from the owners was first class - as was the banana cake left for us. The house was beautiful and spotlessly clean. We couldn’t have wished for anything better. The walks (and climbing for our son) were fantastic. We hope to return soon.

  • "Really beautiful cottage, refurbished to a very high standard, and in a beautiful location just downhill from Curbar Edge."

    I absolutely loved my stay there - my only complaint was that it wasn’t for longer! I will definitely be returning. (Homemade banana cake provided was also excellent!).

    Beautiful cottage in a great location. Every need possible need has been catered for. Very comfortable beds. Lack of WiFi not an issue as 4g signal is good here. A real home from home and a great base to explore the wonderful Peak District

  • "Location. Quiet and peaceful."

    Security. Hygiene (spotless!). Contact with owner. Fabulous renovation. Quality fittings. All in a 5* category! Sykes cottages are expensive but you expect to pay for this level of quality.

  • "We had a fabulous week here, lots of walks from the house, we only used the car once."

    The house was lovely, very clean and comfortable, we were left tea milk and a very tasty banana cake. Thank you so much for our amazing break, after 18 months of being at home we had a fabulous time.

  • "Fantastic cottage in a perfect location for two keen walkers."

    The cottage has been refurbished to a very high specification, a spacious and comfortable home from home. Although no WiFi, this presented no problem as Internet access via our mobile data worked very well for general use.

  • "This is a beautiful house in a beautiful location."

    It was a lovely escape for all four of us before the lockdown. We turned the phones off and actually managed to forget for a few days that everything was going on. We are very grateful to the hosts for giving us a warm welcome (over the phone of course) and some tips about the sights in the local area and we will definitely go back when we next get the opportunity. In fact non of us really wanted to leave! Sykes have also been brilliant after refunding our welsh holiday in full when Wales went on the firebreak, with no hassle whatsoever! and that encouraged us to have confidence to book this trip.

    location is very very good as well within lots of nice walks from easy to shall we say a little more demanding, couple of decent pubs close by as well. Parking is a little tight at the rear of the cottage but really isnt a problem, Cant recommend this place enough, will def be going again.

    The accomodation was excellent, well resourced and thoughtful in the most beautiful location. Excellent secure storage for things such as mountain bikes and the most comfortable of beds. Can't wait to book it again and feel I will do so many times. * extra note regarding current (covid) situation. The booking was postponed twice and the owner kept us informed which was much appreciated.

  • "Galen Croft is a delightful property, in a quiet and picturesque village."

    The owners have done a superb job refurbishing the property to a very high standard, with comfortable furnishings and a very well-appointed kitchen. The whole property was spotlessly clean, inside and out. I honestly cannot think of anything which the property is lacking. Prior to our stay, we also received a courtesy call from the owner, who clearly takes the enjoyment of his guests seriously, and he was tremendously helpful. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this as a property to visit, and I would certainly look to stay at this property again should we return to the Peak District.

  • "Brilliant location with walks abound from the door."

    Pub which serves food is just a short walk down the hill but, you wouldn't want to wander far with the cosy log burner and brilliant cooking facilities. Comfortable beds, beautiful bathroom with an excellent attention to fittings and fixtures. Would we recommend, you won't be disappointed.

About the location


Baslow 1 mile; Bakewell 6 miles.

The sleepy village of Curbar lies just below Froggatt Edge and Curbar Gap in the heart of the Peak District National Park, just a stone’s throw from the National Trust owned Longshaw Estate and less than five miles from Chatsworth House - home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. This pretty village has a collection of Peak District Millstones, a pub, a craft shop and a gallery, and is a wonderful base for walks, climbing and mountain biking. The village of Baslow with shops, pubs and restaurants is only a mile away and a further range of amenities can be found in the market town of Bakewell, the capital of the Peak District and home to the famous Bakewell pudding (definitely not tart!). Haddon Hall is close by and Alton Towers Theme Park is also within easy touring distance meaning there is plenty to enjoy from Curbar.
