  • "A lovely cottage in an ideal location for exploring the Peak District, plenty of walks from the doorstep."

    Would definitely consider a return visit. However, this was all let down with zero communication from the owner with no information pack or any instructions. There was also no number provided for to report any issues. Whilst the property has clearly recently been updated with an excellent bathroom and kitchen, there were a number of small but frustrating issues i:e both bulbs had gone on the oven extractor fan, the bulb had gone on the bathroom mirror and the remote for the tv soundbar didn’t work, probably a battery issue. The latch on garden gate was also hanging off meaning it didn’t fully close and was an issue for the security of dogs who could easily get out. The outside light at the front wasn’t working, again a simple fix but no spare bulbs and nobody to tell about it. Feel petty mentioning and only giving 3 out of 5 but when added together all of the above left us with a pretty negative view when it could have been so much better with minimal effort.

    Hi Neil, Thank you for your feedback after your stay at my cottage, although I am a little disappointed with the score you have given. I have tried hard to make Mill Cottage as comfortable as possible for guests. I apologise if there were a few problems. I do not live in the area (hence my home is now a holiday cottage), however Sykes do provide contact details of my management company when you book and they are available 24/7. I have passed all your concerns on and these will be rectified ready for my next guests. Once again, I apologise if the issues spoilt your stay and I hope you might return in the future. I will also add an information pack in the cottage. Kind regards Alison Property Owner

Hope is perfectly situated for either an action-packed break full of caving, climbing, and great walks from the doorstep, or a quiet countryside break in this lovely part of the Peaks.

Nearby are the pretty villages of Edale, the start of the Pennine Way, Castleton and Hathersage with its seasonal outdoor swimming pool, while horse riding and the wonderful Castleton Caves are all available within 3 miles.
