    Perfect location with numerous walks without the need of a car. A very pretty village with small shop, tea shops, pub and restaurant. A short walk to Stoney Middleton and you'll find a good fish and chip shop. The property is over two floors and approached by a flight of stairs leading to the first floor entrance. The property was very comfortable and warm. However, there were several issues that hadn't been resolved of which the owner was aware of. The front door lock was difficult to manage. Several lighting bulbs were blown some of which were essential for safety. We couldn't see in the cooking area due to overhead ceiling light not working and the cooker hood didn't have a working light. The bathrooms also had missing lights. Despite Covid 19 and being asked to delay arrival to allow for 'extra cleaning, this was clearly not done. Dirty cutlery, greasy plates and pans. No dishwasher tablets which is probably why things were not washed properly. Fortunately I always take such items with me and was able to clean what we needed to use. This is the first Sykes cottage where we have had to provide our own dishwasher tablets! I couldn't bring myself to use the oven as it was so dirty. Dishwashing brush should have been thrown away. Food decrement in the cutlery tray. The family bathroom had a metal basket sat in the corner of the bath which was rusty and caked in soap scum. The rust stains had not been wiped away from the bath which I was able to do with little effort. Clearly the cleaning agency were not paying attention to obvious cleaning needs. Again this item needed disposing of. We did contact the owner to bring the front door and lack of lighting to her attention and mentioned the lack of cleanliness. She responded very promptly but was dismissive and blamed the lack of cleanliness onto previous guests. No apology was given. Understandably, we were very concerned about using unclean utensils, crockery and cutlery especially during the pandemic. The only clear evidence of Covid secure cleaning was the TV remote control set! I would highly recommend the area for keen walkers as this is a perfect setting off point. The cottage would be very good if these matters were addressed but I would want outdoor space in better weather.

About the location


Bakewell 7 miles; Tideswell 5 miles.

Eyam is one of the best-preserved villages in the Peak District National Park, nestled at the foot of Sir William Hill, 800ft above sea level and is surrounded by the most glorious countryside. Historically the village is known as the famous 'plague village', as it went into voluntary quarantine when the plague was imported from London in 1665 and thus prevented the spread of the disease. There are many fine old houses in Eyam, and parts of the village have been kept as they looked several centuries ago, such as Eyam Hall, a beautiful 17th century manor house with delightful gardens, craft shops and tea rooms. Above the village lies Eyam Moor, a fine area for walking, with fantastic views across the Derwent Valley, with its many Bronze Age remains and monuments. Visit Bakewell (7 miles) a picturesque market town which holds a livestock market every Monday and the home of the world famous Bakewell Pudding. Explore the mysterious caverns of Castleton, the elegant spa town of Buxton or enjoy the many stately homes on offer including Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall, to mention a few. With Alton Towers, Britain's premier theme park, only a short drive away, this is an ideal base for all the family.
