  • "Lovely holiday cottage in a beautiful Peak District village."

    Thank you for a lovely stay and for all of the little touches that made our stay even better. It was so nice to be able to leave the cottage and go straight into the countryside with the rolling hills and lambs. Very clean and well-looked-after and we hope to come back.

  • "The landlady was very helpful."

    The property was very snug with 4 adults. A nice garden area available. The location is excellent, we walked or cycled from the door every day and there is an abundance of places of interest a short drive away. The village pub does a special pie and pint deal on top of an already good choice of food. Pubs at Bretton (1m walking distance but up a long steep hill) and Eyam (2m, flat) are also recommended.

  • "This is a lovely semi detached cosy cottage in the Peak District."

    The little village is full of stone built cottages and they are vert atmospheric. It is very comfortable with all you need to enjoy a stay in the Peak District. We did not cook meals as we wanted to enjoy the lovely cuisine of the area. There was cooking facilities and cookware if needed. The owner was welcoming but not intrusive and we enjoyed her lovely garden and outside pots. I would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a short break in a quiet village. The village is just off a main road and has very good pub for meals. We dined there for two nights as the food and landlady were so good.

    Very pleasant stay despite the weather! Enough room for 4 adults with stairs that you would expect in an old cottage. 81 year old had no problems with them.

  • "The cottage was a lovely cosy place to relax."

    Everything was clean and comfortable and the owner made herself available if needed, and was friendly and welcoming. Foolow is a very convenient place to stay as all our favourite walks are a short drive away and there are plenty of local options for dog walking. The Bulls Head Inn is a convenient watering hole as it is a short walk across the green and they serve very nice food and have a good vegetarian menu. We also rated the Moon Inn in nearby Stony Middleton very highly and they are open all day.

  • "Sycamore cottage is cozy, with a small kitchen (no room for dishwasher) but adequate equipment to cook in the cottage."

    Upstairs bedrooms are small, bed is comfy. Electric shower has good flow and fittings are modern. Garden is lovely, as described on the website not suitable to let dogs out unattended (not completely enclosed and a deep fishpond). It's located in a pretty village and several public footpaths are within a few minutes walk. Enjoyed our week here.

    The cottage was cosy and well equipped. Having an extra shower and toilet downstairs was a real bonus.

  • "Cottage was much smaller than it appeared in phopentographs."

    The pictures had been stretched. Note the oval millstone outside the Glass porch etc. Oven did not work. Owners response? "It worked last week". Owner entered accommodation while we were away. When questioned about it there was a fair bit of hesitation before admitting she had been through the property to close an upstairs window. We had purposely left the window o a crack to try dry out condensation which nightly left a pool of water on the window sill. Very old property which has been rented out for over forty years . Very small for four people. Both bedrooms up a steep flight of stairs. All in all an unpleasant experience. No washing machine or use thereof. The list goes on.

About the location

FOOLOW

Eyam 2 miles.

Foolow is a delightful little village just 2 miles from the "Plague Village" of Eyam. With stone built cottages around the village green and duck pond the village is a haven from the hustle and bustle of every day life. Foolow boasts a fantastic pub serving food and uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside. Nearby Eyam is one of the best-preserved villages in the Peak District National Park, nestled at the foot of Sir William Hill. 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 (5 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 at Chatsworth, 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.
