  • "Very pleasent stay."

    The property is to a high standard, well presented/equipped and more than spacious enough for two. The location, though remote, is not too far (10 miles give-or-take) from the principle towns of Buxton, Matlock and and Bakewell. Ideal for the older couple (as we are!) who enjoy walking, meandering through the Peak District and can (happily) live without Internet access for a while

    Thank you for your kind review. I just wanted to let you know we now have wifi in all our properties. Property Owner

    It is a really lovely, clean, well equipped and comfortable cottage in a lovely position with views for miles and walks from the door. Sitting on the decking watching curlews, hares and deer so close was really special. The owners Claire and Garry were really friendly, welcoming and gave us some good info on walks in the area. I'm sure we will stay there again. Pat and Graham

    Comfortable and warm (even when snow was falling outside) with a well equipped kitchen and a good sized bath. The property was accurately described and it is an excellent base for exploring the Peak District. Curlew Cottage lived up to its name with the burbling call of curlews heard and which could be seen in the adjacent fields. (In early April.)

    Beautiful clean cosy cottage in stunning surroundings. Curlew had everything you could need provided, even tea and biscuits on arrival. The outdoor decking area is just lovely, we sat outside for dinner a couple of nights as the weather was just perfect, beautiful view's across the fields. Be sure to read the small print as WiFi is not available, but after the first day you get used to not having it. The hosts were very helpful and friendly answering all our questions even on a Sunday night. We had plenty of lovely walks and trips to country pubs, took several trips to local areas, buxton wasn't too far and had lots to do and see. Absolutely beautiful place to stay, I would go back In heart beat.

  • "We had a good time and the weather was kind."

    Poor lighting throughout, but warm. No. hooks or shelves in bathroom. We were there for 7 nights and not once did the owners speak to us which we found quite amazing as other quests said they were friendly, they were only found the corner, at least the cat was happy to see us!

    Many thanks for your feedback. The towel and the rack of wicker baskets has always been more than adequate in the bathroom. We changed all the light bulbs in the cottage to energy saving ones but we have extra lighting under the kitchen wall units and a brighter reading lamp available for close up reading. We will however look at upgrading the lamps again. With regard to not meeting you, we have been advised to have as little contact as possible within the properties from Sykes Cottages, but by chance we have bumped into a few guests in the parking area. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet you on this occasion as we have 5 holiday cottages and have had changeovers every day. Property Owner

  • "Given that this property is rather isolated and there was a lack of up to date leaflets regarding things in the area, I think the availability of wifi is a must."

    I did not want to keep up with emails etc. but I wanted to carry out research, check opening times, check the weather as the tv did not seem to offer a weather forecast for the area we were in. I wanted to find out more about walks in the area and the cycle trails but there was nothing in the cottage to help. We picked up a load of new leaflets and left them in the cottage which may help later occupants. The property itself was excellent apart from the lighting which was very poor and it was nearly impossible to read given the poor level of lighting. The shower ran hot and cold but that was probably due to poor water pressure as there was another cottage behind us. We loved the cheese which was left by our hosts and I would stay at Curlew Cottage again but only if wifi was available.

About the location


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.

Note: Adults and infants only.
