  • "Lovely cottage along a shared drive with four other properties close by."

    That said, the orientation of the cottage made you generally feel isolated and alone (just how I like it). Views from the garden across to the moors. The cottage itself had everything I needed. The bed was very comfortable. Quirky walls and ceilings due to the age of the cottage. There were walks in all directions from the village but the two main roads at either end of the lane that the cottage is on were quite busy. At this time of the year when fields are wet I plan to walk round quiet lanes but I didn’t find any close to the cottage. Did find some lovely walks a short drive away. Great size garden for kids and dogs. Nice walk over the moors a five minute walk from the cottage.

  • "This is a very nice rustic cottage that has been carefully extended and retains its charm."

    Due to its age, issues such as stairs and head height can be challenging but that’s what you get with such properties. Cottage was comfortable, especially the double bed, generally very well appointed especially the kitchen, which I find with many rentals can be sadly lacking. The large cooker range facilitated a family gathering more than adequately. The heating system worked well but I struggled a little with understanding the remote control. Cake and milk was welcomed upon arrival but no wine as some reviewers have mentioned

  • "The cottage is exactly as described, it’s really lovely, lots of natural light and feels like the owner makes a lot of effort to make it feel like home from home, there was even lemon cake and organic milk in the fridge upon arrival."

    Lots of little extra details make it perfect, treats for the dogs, fuel for the log fire, lots of books and games, good tv choices and the internet connection was great. The kitchen is really well equipped, cafetières for coffee and lots of pans to cook with, the range oven is so good! The garden is lovely with and outside light that is perfect for winter nights, and the local area is lovely too. Only things to point out is the garden is perfect for smaller less adventurous dogs, but ours is seemingly part mountain goat and she managed to escape over the stone wall to the right of the cottage very quickly, she came straight back of course and we had long lines with us, but it’s worth making sure you check this is suitable for your dogs, the owner discussed this with us before arrival and was happy to answer any questions. Finally the master bedroom is one of the comfiest beds I’ve had in a holiday cottage, but the singles in the twin room we found extremely hard and had to double up quilts on them to make them soft enough to sleep on…this is entirely personal preference but just something to note it that’s important to you. All in all a lovely lovely stay, highly recommend it and would rebook in a heartbeat.

  • "A well equipped cottage on the outskirts of a village."

    Good communications by text with the owner, both in advance and while we were there. Pleasant garden for those going in warmer or dryer weathers. The second bedroom is very basic with not even bedside tables, chairs or storage facilities. This might be better as a single room, which would allow room for these facilities. The living room had information abut the local area, reading books etc, but these were all piled haphazardly on the window sill. Perhaps add a bookcase into the room so these can be looked at more easily. A bonus was free access to Amazon prime and netflix channels. Some people might think having a knitting shop in the village is a bonus.

    Gorgeous large enclosed garden which our two dogs enjoyed. The beds were very comfortable which is always pleasing. The cottage is perfectly situated for many places to visit without having to travel far ( Castleton, Bakewell etc ) A most welcome surprise was to find milk and a cake in the fridge yum yum. We didn't do any cooking in the cottage so used the two local pubs mentioned in the arrival book and the food was great and dog friendly too. The cottage could do with a visitors book,did look but couldn't find one. Would like to come back to the cottage and would certainly recommend it

    My clothes wher hung in the kitchen. Kitchen table was absolutely filthy had to wash it before we could use it. Hoover was blocked until we unblocked it. No fire guard for log burner - so carpet covered in burn marks. Frying pan useless - everything stuck to it. Apart from that the living room and bathroom were good and the kitchen was well equipped. Not worth £600 per week. I was disappointed for my visitors from Australia.

  • "We were very impressed with the Cottage."

    It was warm, comfortable and animal friendly. The double bed was very comfortable and the shower was superb. Likewise the cottage was very warm with a log fire if it turned chilly. The garden was large and ideal for our large dog. She did manage to escape one evening but we were more vigilant after that. The only downside is that we had hoped to be able to walk to a nearby pub for a drink and a meal. There are two pubs in walking distance but one was on a busy road and the other one we checked on their website and it said it was open. When we walked there (in the rain) it was closed. We were told by a local that they did very good food but that was no consolation! So you need to phone ahead to be sure places are open. Otherwise the location is very good for visiting Glossop, Buxton and there are many local walks for the hounds. The scenery is amazing. Would definitely recommend but unfortunately the drive up from Southampton was rather long so we will probably not be returning. However a very nice cottage with very helpful neighbours who advise on local walks etc. Thankyou for a very relaxing break.

    A beautiful setting looking out across the fields into Glossop. The cottage was very well equipped, cosy, warm and comfortable. The owners had left milk and cake and there were essentials like tea bags and washing up liquid, logs for the fire available which is really nice and makes things so much more convenient. The gardens were enclosed and perfect for our dog. We loved the features in the property. Such comfy bed too! Maps and books about the area helped us to maximise our time in the area and we walked our socks off! The settees in the cottage could do with replacing as they both had tears in them but were comfortable for our needs. We were able to liaise with the host before arrival and during our visit to ask about torches, which were available for us to use as was pretty much anything else we needed as they had thought about visitor needs to make our stay enjoyable. Thanks to Wayne for a fantastic stay. We loved it.

    From the pictures available it looked like the cottage had normal ceiling height, he could stand up straight but almost touched the downstairs ceilings but of course the doorframes were very low particularly the main bedroom which was a whole head height lower. I would be grateful if this information was available in the listing just so our time spent in a cottage is not constantly fraught with "watch your head" as it is easy to forget to duck!! The property was very comfortable and with a nice garden if you take a dog. We were provided with fuel for the log burner and the heating was lovely and warm so easily ideal in the winter. The cottage is well furnished with a range cooker and all equipment in the kitchen for meals in if you chose to cook. It is in a lovely area of the high peaks and we were blessed with a bright, sunny day to visit Quarrybank Mill, a National Trust site which was a short drive away. There are also plenty of walks nearby which was ideal. Please feel free to publish the second part of the feedback, the first part relates to Sykes listing.

    There is not a negative thing that I can say about this cottage, in fact would go so far to say the best and most well equipped accommodation that we have ever stayed in!! The kitchen was fantastically well stocked with all the utensils and odds and ends that you could want for. The living room has both a DVD player and chromecast (as well as DVDs and boardgames). The rooms were all very clean and was a great home from home. Also loads of tourist leaflets in the property as well as walking trail routes/maps. The location of the cottage is perfect too (the view from the garden is awesome), Glossop and all its shops are only 5 mins away, and to get on the peaks for walking will take you about 3 minutes. The cottage is also only 5 minutes away from the Trans Penine Trail and a short drive from the Longdendale Trail. The cottage is in a cluster of 3 other properties, no problems with parking and the neighbours that we met were very friendly. The back garden is dog escape proof, but our pooch did find a way out the front one - not a problem though as only used the back :) Worth saying that the wifi was actually very good, sometimes with 4 of us on at once, no slowness seen. The overall location is great too in relation to places like Chatsworth, Lyme Park, Buxton, Matlock etc etc Can not recommend this cottage enough...we will certainly come here again :)
