  • "Beautiful little cottage in a quiet setting."

    Very cosy. Small, but well-equipped kitchen and plenty of home comforts. Sofa wasn't quite as comfy as we'd have liked, but didn't spend much time on it! Perfect for a family holiday or for couples. The stone floors and fireplace were a bit of a hazard for our newly crawling little one though!

    Thank you for your feedback Rachel it’s appreciated. Very pleased that you enjoyed the setting, ambience and home comforts of the cottage. Yes downstairs we decided to keep the traditional cottage style flagstones and tiles and solid fuel fire, in addition to the central heating. We do hope that you might come and stay at Hops Cottage again sometime. Very best wishes. Property Owner

  • "A lovely property and being 5 foot 5 I didn't struggle but my husband did with some of the beams."

    Lovely size garden but due to the maintenance and two large holes with bricks over we didn't use with our kids. Instead, we walked to the playground which is only around the corner. With not having much wardrobe space it would have been handy to have an iron. It would have been great to have a hairdryer too. But, neither of these were listed so I knew about this in advance. Not far from uttoxeter and well placed for lots of lovely days out as a family. Overall a lovely little cottage and would recommend to family and friends

    We appreciate the review and your positive comments and suggestions. The photos show the garden at the current time. It’s a sizeable garden so going forward we are looking for a gardener to help us. The two covered post holes in the lawn approx 20cm are due to be filled with soil and turfed over. We were pleased to hear that the children made good use of the playground nearby. And close to the St Cuthbert’s churchyard (with the ancient yew tree of Robin Hood and Maid Marion fame) there's a lovely pond where the ducks can be fed and a bench to sit and relax. In the summer you will also find a wonderful display of wild flowers near to the pond. Thank you for recommending Hops Cottage to your family and friends Property Owner

  • "Only two things I think could improve the cottage; ~ garden maintence ~ include washing machine We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, was a great base for exploring surrounding areas."

    Pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the cottage and the surrounding areas. It’s a large garden so we are looking for a gardener to help us. We will keep in mind the possible installation of a washing machine in future if space and plumbing practicalities allow. Many thanks. Property Owner

  • "Our stay at the Hops Cottage was very relaxing."

    A lot of peak district attractions are around an hour drive from the cottage so the location is quite good as a base stay. The cottage is very cosy and the garden is the highlight of it. We would like to add couple of suggestions : 1. The garden need a bit of Maintaince. 2. Having a washing machine in the cottage will really add value to it.

    Thank you for your feedback and suggestions much appreciated. Lovely to hear that you had a relaxing stay and made the most of the many attractions in the area. We agree the garden is a great space and we are looking for a gardener to give it that extra maintenance and finishing touches. We will certainly keep in mind the possible installation of a washing machine in future but this will depend on the space and plumbing practicalities. Thanks again. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage in nice location."

    Sykes policy of window restrictors made it extremely difficult to ventilate the bedrooms.

    Great to hear that you liked the cottage and the location. The child safety window restrictors allow the upstairs windows to open up to approximately 10cm. But the restrictors can be unlocked allowing the windows to be fully opened. The instructions are in the welcome folder at the cottage. Thank you for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "We had difficulty in finding the cottage."

    I think if the instructions were improved it would help. For instance, 'foot path' and 'set back from the road' Loved the large garden, and this was the ideal spot to explore with load of stuff to do within a 45 minute drive.

    Thank you for your feedback Laurayne. Pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. I will certainly look to improve the directions. Property Owner

Nestled in the village of Doveridge in Derbyshire, is this delightful two-bedroom semi-detached cottage, Hops Cottage.

Continuing through to the hallway, you will find a spacious pantry which houses plenty of storage.

Into the dining room which has a solid fuel cooker, then uncork a bottle of wine and settle down at the dining table for four to savour a delicious meal, as you plan your holidays itinerary.

Kick-back and relax in the sitting room as the warmth of the solid fuel fire envelopes you, whilst you enjoy a family film night on the Smart TV.

When sleep calls, take your pick from two well-presented bedrooms, a king-size and a twin, both perfect for catching your rest in.

Awake from a leisurely slumber and indulge in a blissful soak in the bath or refreshing shower, before whipping up morning coffees ready to enjoy out in the large private garden.

Pop your coat and boots on from the handy porch and make your way into the local village.

The property rests in the heart of Doveridge, and a short walk will bring you to a well-stocked village shop for picking-up any last-minute essentials, as well as a Post Office and the welcoming Cavendish Arms, perfect for those evenings where you don’t feel like cooking.

Doveridge also has a lovely children's playground and playing field, where the little ones can run around and play after a homemade picnic.

About the location


Uttoxeter 3 miles; Ashbourne 12 miles.

The pretty little village of Doveridge lies within easy reach of the Peak District National Park. Doveridge, mentioned in the Domesday Book is nestled amongst beautiful countryside, offering great walking, and cycling paths and trails. The village has a small shop/Post Office with a coffee shop. St Cuthbert’s Church dates from before the 13th century and boasts a 1400-year-old yew tree which is supported on crutches and under which Robin Hood and Maid Marion were rumoured to have wed. Near the church flows the River Dove with its Victorian suspension footbridge. The village is situated just three miles from the bustling Staffordshire town of Uttoxeter with its larger array of amenities and racecourse. The NT Sudbury Hall and the Museum of Childhood is very close by and offers a fascinating insight into days gone by. The market town of Ashbourne is within driving distance with its eccentric street plan, narrow cobbled alleys and quaint coaching inns and is something of a haven for antique hunters, boasting superb shops, as well as a variety of good pubs and restaurants. The Dove and Manifold Valleys and many other National Trust properties and places of interest are also nearby, and both Carsington Water, Blithfield Reservoir and Alton Towers are a scenic drive away, making this a wonderful location for relaxation and enjoyment all year round.
