  • "The cottage was everything we hoped for and more."

    The farm behind the cottage was a delight to see and hear all the farm noises. Located in a beautiful village and green with an excellent pub. Would easily come back here and stay again.

  • "This is one of the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed at."

    The cottage was both clean and very comfortable and the owners had obviously thought of every facility.in addition they had provided many extras including a delicious bakewell tart - thank you. The cottage is located in the lovely village of Monyash, half way between Buxton and Bakewell, so great for exploring the Derbyshire Dales and a visit to Chatsworth House.

  • "Very relaxing cottage with unusually comfy beds for a holiday cottage."

    Provided lots of books and leaflets for local walks which came in very handy. Great location and very close to the village pub and café.

  • "The cottage was truly lovely."

    Fully fitted kitchen with plenty of space to sit and eat. We cooked most of our evening meals in the cottage. The sitting room was a good size with two decent leather sofas. The tv was sufficient for the size of room and has an HDMI port to connect a laptop or smart device if the TV or provided dvds don’t appeal. We left an HDMI cable behind as a present for the cottage as there wasn’t one there when we stayed. The location is superb being equidistant(ish) between Buxton and Bakewell. Parking is on the street and because of farm traffic would advise parking up onto the pavement. We had a superb time and when we come back to the area in the future we will certainly consider booking the Priory again.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay plenty to do and having a cafe and restaurant nearby was great."

    Lots of manageable walks also. Would certainly recommend.

  • "The cottage is beautiful and very well equipped."

    As a family of five it did mean 2 daughters had to share a double bed and they would have preferred single beds. However, I did know on booking this was the situation. The cottage did have a taint of damp, which, considering it’s an old building is understandable but was slightly off putting on arrival. Location is fantastic, the village is quintessential Peak District and I would recommend this cottage to friends and family.

    It was spacious, warm, and very clean. The bedding was of a high quality which was very much appreciated! Lovely welcome Bakewell tart with the cottage's name one - a nice touch.

  • "Sykes advised taking everything with us due to Covid,e."

    G.books, DVDs, tea towels, oven gloves, hand wash,sanitiser etc. There was no need - everything was there including all the above, plus cushions, throws etc. No need for future visitors to load up with all these extras. Also, Sykes said I should phone the housekeeper,Gill, for key code and would need to scan QR code on arrival. Gill was surprised by my phone call, said there was no need as she always texted visitors with all details (which she then did, including lots of useful information about the area) and was puzzled by the QR code request, assuring me that there was no such code at the cottage and that she had all our necessary information anyway. The cottage was spotless, well equipped and everything totally safe, including new and replacement toilet rolls, kitchen rolls etc., all completely wrapped in plastic bags. We were a little surprised on arrival to find no rear garden/access, only a farmyard with livestock and enormous tractors and farm machinery outside our rear windows. Although a surprise it didn’t worry us as my husband was raised on a farm. Parking outside on ‘lane’ was fine but we weren’t aware the lane was a main road from Bakewell to Ashbourne, and therefore pretty busy. We did enjoy our stay, despite bad weather, and would heartily recommend the property, and the Bull’s Head pub a two minute walk away,with excellent food and groaning plates!

  • "The cottage was warm and comfortable, and very well equipped."

    On arrival there was a bottle of wine, fresh milk, tea, coffee, biscuits etc and the nicest touch, a vase of fresh flowers in the sitting room. The house keeper Gill stayed in touch by text to make sure we had everything we needed, and we had a most enjoyable few days at The Priory - highly recommended.

About the location


Bakewell 4.5 miles; Buxton 8 miles.

Monyash is a charming Derbyshire village built around the village green in the heart of the Peak District National Park, boasting a 17th century village pub which serves good food. The attractive market town of Bakewell is just under 5 miles away and offers visitors a good selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as frequent local farmers' markets. Bakewell is situated within the Peak District National Park and is ideally placed for exploring this beautiful region. Both the rugged Dark Peak and the softer limestone White Peak are within easy reach, and Alton Towers, Britain's premier theme park, is only a short drive away. There are many stately homes to visit including Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall to mention just a few, while the impressive caverns in nearby Castleton and Little John's burial place in Hathersage are also well worth a visit. It is beautiful walking country with several of the Peak District's famous dales close by including Dovedale, Millers Dale, Monsal Dale and the stunning Lathkill Dale. The Tissington Trail is also nearby.
