  • "This is a wonderful property and we love it!"

    Tucked away off the main street, so quiet, and really dark at night. Bliss. Sylvia and David are always on hand if you need assistance. They are excellent hosts and the welcome pack is always gratefully received. Lots to do in the area for all age groups too. Thank you.

  • "A super base for our walking/cycling trip."

    The Nook is brilliant - really clean and very comfortable. Lovely welcoming goodies and provisions (thank you so much). Towels and sheets smelt lovely too! Great outdoor space to sit in the sun, useful utility type lobby for leaving shoes and coats etc. We did some long walks and the weather wasn’t great so we were also grateful for the lovely warm bathroom! Welcoming and kind host who lives next door but is not at all intrusive but happy to help if you need it. Thank you for a lovely stay.

    The owners have thought of everything you may need and the extra treats are a lovely touch. The nook is spotlessly clean with very comfy beds plus an undercover seating area which is great for enjoying a drink if the weather is not great, there is a small courtyard with outside seating too for when the weather is warm. We had a lovely stay and felt very at home, Sylvia is just next door if needed but not intrusive, we will definitely go back and would not hesitate in recommending the nook .

  • "What a wonderful hideaway!"

    Quiet, cosy, clean and comfortable with its own parking space and yet very close to the small shop and two excellent pubs in the village, with plenty of footpaths and cycling opportunities, including the Monsal trail, nearby. The owners, who live next door, were very welcoming - but not at all intrusive - and provided an exceedingly generous welcome pack. Much appreciated. Thank you! The little, private, courtyard garden and covered veranda are a fabulous addition to the property providing a quiet retreat in which to relax, either in the sun or shade, with plenty of seating and cushions provided. We stayed for a week in March and experienced the full range of weather from warm sunshine to snow. We thoroughly enjoyed soaking up the spring sunshine on the patio but the veranda was far too cold to sit in so I imagine it will be a gloriously cool and dry space to enjoy on a hot, or wet, summer day. We have stayed in many Sykes cottages, over the years, and have never been disappointed but this has definitely been one of the best. Despite making it a rule never to stay in the same place twice, I would love to return to this one! A word of warning for those less agile: there is a short, but very steep, road up to the property and uneven surfaces, through the courtyard garden, to access The Nook.

The property

A cosy annexe to the owner’s own home, this stone-built cottage is situated close to the centre of the charming village of Great Longstone, in the heart of the Peak District National Park.

This lovely cottage is self-contained and makes an ideal base for cyclists, walkers or a family visiting this area of natural outstanding beauty.

Comfortable and well-equipped, it features two lovely bedrooms and a large shower room.

The spacious open plan living area features a modern kitchen with dining table and a warm and cosy sitting area.

The floor-to-ceiling window provides lots of light, making this an ideal sociable space to enjoy some delicious home-cooking and relaxation at the end of a busy day.

Outside, a delightful patio area with water feature provides a lovely spot for a relaxing drink or perhaps some alfresco dining under the covered veranda which is a perfect escape from any showers while still enjoying the fresh air.

Great Longstone is an attractive limestone village set around a pretty village green.

There are two olde-worlde pubs, which offer good pub food and real ales, where you can enjoy a bite to eat and rest your walking legs with a well-earned drink at the end of the day.

The spectacular Monsal Trail, an 8.5 mile former railway line, now a traffic free track for cyclists or walkers taking in the stunning surrounding countryside, is just on your doorstep.

The lovely market town of Bakewell is a short drive away or you could walk or cycle via the Monsal Trail.

Historic houses including Chatsworth house, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall are just a short car journey away, making this cosy holiday home a lovely retreat at any time of the year.

The pretty Derbyshire village of Great Longstone is situated in a wonderful location in the heart of the Peak District National Park. Great Longstone is nestled in an enviable position, flanked by Longstone Edge, with Bakewell and Chatsworth House close by. The village offers two traditional village pubs, a shop, 18th century stone cottages and a market cross that is situated on the delightful village green. The Monsal Trail runs through the village and provides eight and a half miles of scenic traffic-free walking and cycling, with the spectacular viaduct at nearby Monsal Head and several tunnels along the route to keep the whole family interested. Just down the road lies the picture postcard village of Ashford-in-the-Water, which boasts a medieval Sheepwash Bridge, once a major crossing point over the River Wye for packhorses delivering mail from Derby. The nearby, renowned market town of Bakewell, which can be accessed via the Monsal Trail, offers a variety of shops, restaurants and pubs, together with frequent local farmers' markets. Take a stroll along the river bank to feed the ducks and geese and see the ‘love locks’ on the foot bridge. The spa town of Buxton with its Opera House is also within driving distance. You could also visit the many stately homes including the iconic Chatsworth, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall, or take a trip to the World Heritage Site of the Richard Arkwright Mills in Cromford, all of which are within easy reach. With the impressive castle and caverns at Castleton close by, you'll be spoilt for choice at this fantastic location.
