  • "We loved the location."

    The en-suite bedrooms were great. Loved the little but lovely garden. Thought the sitting room was in need of a freshen up and tight if you were the full 6 in occupancy. Always find that the kitchen as in this case doesn’t include decent sharp knives and we do cook. Also as a 5 ft tall person the glasses were on top shelf in a cupboard over the dishwasher so had to climb on a chair to reach. Being picky but we paid what we felt was quite a lot of money for this cottage. So small changes would make it great.

  • "Lovely cottage in the centre of the village, had a real homely charm."

    Garden was a sun trap and enjoyed sitting out in the afternoons. Great location for exploring the Monsal and Tissington trails.

  • "Beautiful character cottage in a brilliant location."

    Spacious, really well appointed and comfortable with everything we needed for the week, especially in the kitchen. The village is picture postcard with two great pubs which do good food (recommend booking though as gets busy), couple of general stores plus an amazing cheese shop. There’s a mobile fish and chip van on a Fri which we used and everyone was very friendly and helpful. For hikers/ walkers the location is fantastic, both for walks from the village itself and circulars starting a short drive away. We will definitely be coming back!

  • "This is a lovely cottage right in the middle of Hartington."

    It had an extremely well equipped kitchen. The lounge is comfortable and a great place to people watch after a long day walking. The beds were also very comfortable. Charming back garden. We will definitely recommend to friends and family and we will return.

    A surprisingly spacious and clearly loved home which provided my family a fantastic holiday base. A great place to return to after a day exploring all the delights the Peaks have to offer. The owner was very pleasant and welcoming and the cottage was packed with a wealth of facilities to enhance our stay.

    So sorry about the problem with the macerator that you mentioned in the visitors book. We have had it mended very recently! We will get it fixed again this week while we are staying here ourselves. Hope it didn't keep you awake. So pleased you had a good time otherwise. Property Owner

    Ideal for walkers, cyclists and those who want to visit places such as Chatsworth, Haddon Hall, Tissington and the towns of Bakewell, Matlock , Buxton and Ashbourne. Hartington provides shops, two good pubs which provide meals, a Friday fish and chip van and the famous Hartington Cheese Shop.

  • "We stayed in this cottage for 1 week and it was perfectly located."

    It is in the heart of Hartington, which has a variety of well-stocked local shops and 2 good pubs (1 being a hotel). There is a parking space outside the front door, but all parking in the village is free and usually there are plenty of spaces. The house is spacious and the 3 bedrooms - 1 king, 1 double and 1 twin - all have their own bathrooms. As there were only two of us, we used the back king size room and the bed was fantastically comfortable. There is a downstairs loo, which is adjacent to the spacious hallway. Washing machine facilities are in the basement. The living room is cosy, with 2 x 2 seat sofas and 2 armchairs. There is an open fire place for chillier evenings. The dining room has enough space for larger families and the kitchen is well stocked with crockery etc. The enclosed garden is particularly pretty and is visited by small, interesting birds. The neighbours have access rights to the bins. Be aware that the garden gate closes securely, but has no lock. You can pop across to the pond and cheese shop, from here. The gardener comes each week, usually on a Tuesday. There are some great local walks from the cottage, so if you didn't want to use the car too much it is ideal. I would certainly recommend staying in this fabulous cottage.

  • "Lovely traditionally decorated cosy cottage in a great setting close to local amenities."

    The walks were just stunning. Although the information sent on retrieving the back door key was accurate, there were no details on how to use the front electronic entry system. We managed to work it out with the help of the couple who were renting the next door cottage who were having the same problems! Information left in cottage was very useful except could not work out how to use the hob and had to Google it!! The back garden was small but lovely, however it would have been good to know that it was shared access with the next door rental, especially as we had 2 dogs.Not the cleanest as fridge and kitchen cupboard shelves not been wiped down and our dog found things under the chairs and drawers and we found a pair of underpants behind the cupboard in the dressing room. The beds were very comfy, showers good and kitchen was excellently equipped. These aside really enjoyed the stay.

  • "A lovely and well equipped cottage in a stunning setting with a small courtyard garden and private parking."

    Local village shop is well stocked but the farm shop at Stanedge Grange a few miles away is well worth seeking out for their amazing meat and pies and extensive range of veggies. Bakewell, Buxton and Chatsworth all near by and lovely medium grade walks directly from the cottage. Avoid the Devonshire Arms pub, bad service, limited choice and poor quality 'cheap' fried food. The Charles Cotton pub is far superior!

  • "The house wasn't cleaned to a very high standard, for example, a small quantity of urine left in a child's potty, melted plastic on the oven shelves, dirty kitchen cupboards and drawers."

    The garden although lovely, would be more dog friendly with a bigger back gate or bolt on it. Lovely location, excellent pubs.

  • "There were no instructions about how to find the key safe."

    It took us nearly half an hour in the dark and rain to locate the key safe as it involved going through a gate at the back of the terrace of cottages and then into the back garden. Luckily we had torches on our phones but we spent some time in the neighbours garden before realising it wasn’t the right property. It also took some time to work out how and where to turn on the hot water and it would have been nice if this had been done before we arrived. Not a great start to our holiday. Other than that the cottage was wonderful. A fantastic location with pubs and shops on the doorstep and beautiful walking in the dales. The cottage was extremely well equipped and the beds were very comfortable.

  • "We had a fantastic long weekend over the Easter break staying in this cottage, with friends."

    It's in a great location, right in the centre of Hartington and we were able to start our walks from the cottage and didn't have to drive anywhere. Hartington is a beautiful village with a tea room, shops and pub (although under renovation at the moment). The cottage it's self was perfect for our group of 6 adults, 2 dogs and had everything we needed. We had 3 out of our 4 dinners in and the kitchen was well stocked for that, with pots and pans. We were happy to stay in as the cottage was so homely and it also has a lovely south facing garden. The only thing missing was a BBQ, however we could have purchased a disposable one from the village shop, if we had wanted. Thank you for allowing us to stay here and we would love to stay here again.

  • "A gorgeous cottage in a beautiful old market town, excellent facilities in the cottage and also in the small town."

    The cottage is perfectly positioned for enjoying the wonderful Derbyshire and Staffordshire countryside with great walks and cycling routes from the front door. There are plenty of towns to visit on the doorstep, Buxton, Bakewell (market day is Monday) and Ashbourne. As well as Haddon and Chatsworth Halls, a hidden gem is Thornbridge Hall gardens just 8 miles away. Having three en-suites in the cottage was a dream ad it felt like a tardis! The small garden is walled and a sun trap ( when the sun appeared). Finding the entrance into the back garden on arrival to collect the key caused a few minor issues. Clearer instructions, such as; "To the right of the property behind Corner House there is a blue gate. Go through this gate to the back of Ivy Cottage." The Yale key lock in the front door needs fixing as this is loose and difficult to use. These are only very minor issues. The cottage was perfect and we look forward to visiting again.

    For dog owners it’s worth noting that the rear garden , although secure, has a shared gate ( not visible from the back door) which someone left open on “bins out” day. We hadn’t noticed until our dog seemed to be taking a long time to come in that evening - found him some distance away exploring the village!

    This is the first time we've ever had this type of holiday - normally opting to holiday abroad. We decided to try a holiday cottage where we could take our dogs for a change and would definitely recommend this cottage and the fantastic location. It was central to many of the beautiful parts of the peak district and even though we live relatively locally, we were able to visit places we would never normally have had the time to go to. The cottage itself was absolutely perfect, full of character and also very spacious and well equipped, with a lovely back garden. Would definitely visit again and recommend Sykes Cottages for their ease and choice of booking.

The property

A charming stone terrace cottage, located in the heart of the village of Hartington, a stone's throw from Dove Valley in the glorious Peak District.

A lovely garden sits at the front of the house, overlooking the marketplace, with a few pubs located right on the doorstep.

This is the ideal spot for families and friends who wish to spend time together in one of the most pleasant villages in the area.

The cottage is set over three floors with very traditional, vintage characteristics.

There are three cosy bedrooms, all of which have en-suite bathrooms, one of the second floor bedrooms also has a dressing room.

The twin room is on the third floor with light streaming in from the skylight above.

Head to the dining area where an old Rangemaster is on display, leading to the fully-equipped kitchen area and outside to the delightful back garden.

Relax on the comfy sofa in the sitting room and light the stove during the colder months, or simply look out onto the front lawn and local market.

The beautiful village of Hartington offers some of the very best walking trails to be explored.

Just South of Hartington is Wolfscote Hill, a great spot for picturesque countryside views.

About seven miles away is Hadden Hall, a medieval and Tudor manor house and a popular location choice for various film and TV broadcasts, complete with a restaurant and gift shop.

These are just a couple of the many places to venture to in the surrounding area of this quaint, heart-warming home-from-home.

About the location

HARTINGTON

Bakewell 10 miles; Buxton 10 miles.

Hartington, situated in the Dove Valley in the Peak District National Park, was an important market centre in the Middle Ages, having been granted a market charter in 1203. Today the ever-popular village boasts lovely tea rooms, a cheese shop, old curiosity shops, traditional pubs and a splendid market square where the stone-carved village pump, once an important source of water for the villagers, still stands on the green. The local bars stock local ales brewed at the Leatherbritches Brewery in Fenny Bentley and Whim Ales in Hartington itself. The former Hartington railway station, about a mile and half from the village itself, is now a picnic area and the converted track is known as the Tissington Trail, popular with both walkers and cyclists. Hartington is also a good starting point for walking along Beresford Dale, a beautiful place with its curiously formed cliffs and rocks. Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are both within a 20 minute drive, and Alton Towers is within easy reach.
