  • "It's an amazing place, and so ideally located in the Peak District."

    The annexe is clean, kitted out and has everything you'd need for a comfortable stay. It definitely makes us want to come back and recommend to everybody.

  • "We enjoyed a comfortable couple of nights stay at woodbine retreat."

    This is a very petite space. Modern kitchen and bathroom. Thank you for the welcome food gifts, they were very nice. The only down side to our stay was whenever we returned to the retreat after a day out, there was a very strong potent oil fuel smell. The only ventilation was to open the stable door. Could do with a little window or some form of ventilation. Other than that a very comfortable stay.

  • "Woodbine Cottage was an interesting experience."

    It was just what we wanted for a lovey 'RETREAT' , a getaway from it all. Mark and Kate were very helpful. We were able to get around visiting the beautiful Derbyshire Countryside. .

  • "Difficult to find tucked away different name on gate , even next door said they didn't know where it was , no Internet access or phone signal in area unless your on ee, found it smaller than expected no hair dryer, and towels very small ."

    Thanks for you feedback, we’ll look to supply a hair dryer moving forward. For those reading the feedback, and to avoid confusion, the property is tucked away (Directions provided by Sykes when a booking is made), its important to note the gate to the property is also shown in the property pictures (Next door is also a holiday let so not ideal for directions). Signal in the Peak District is sparse and EE does tend to have the best results, however the property does have full WIFI with good bandwidth. New photos have been recently uploaded, I feel these give a good visualisation of the size of the property. Property Owner

  • "Wonderfully comfortable cottage in a great little village."

    Comfy bed, very modern kitchen and bath. Stayed warm on the cold nights and loved getting a surprise of some local cheese and milk in the fridge. Would definitely recommend.

About the location


Tideswell 7 miles; Bakewell 12 miles; Matlock 21 miles.

It was the constant 28 degrees centigrade of the bubbling blue waters of Buxton's eight thermal springs that originally attracted the Romans to the town. However it was during the 18th and 19th centuries, under the patronage of successive Dukes of Devonshire, that the Palladian splendour of the Buxton of today was designed and built - including the magnificent semi-circular Crescent, The Great Stable, Hall Bank, The Square, The Pavilion Gardens and The Opera House. Today visitors continue to enjoy these magnificent buildings and gardens, as well as the Opera House's full programme and annual festivals of music and arts. There is good walking close by with rugged peaks to the north and gentle hills and dales to the south and a number of pretty towns and villages are dotted throughout including Bakewell, Ashford-in-the-Water, Castleton and Edale. The stunning properties of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are within easy driving distance and must be seen while visiting this area. A great base for exploring the Peak District.
