    Wonderful location, immaculate, comfy, cosy & very well equipped cottage. The garden was a beautiful place to sit & enjoy the scenic view. The 'welcome' basket was also a lovely & much appreciated touch. 10 out of 10. We will definitely be booking again.

    Very clean, extremely well equipped (there was nothing I needed and we made full use of the kitchen/cooking facilities) , lovely welcome basket, comfortable and cosy. Friendly and pleasant owners. Fantastic location in a beautiful village and surrounded by stunning countryside with numerous walking options. Whilst I am happy to let the owners know, and to help their business by encouraging others to visit, I am also hesitant a little as I don't want them to be so fully booked up that I can't get booked in the next time I want to visit!

    The owners Sarah and Andrew know exactly how to present the property. It is always spotless, and provides everything that one could wish for in a holiday cottage. They are so thoughtful and kind. It spoils you for any other holiday property. One can only be disappointed going to a different property. The number of return visitors shows how much people appreciate all that is on offer here.

    House was very clean and beautifully decorated. Lovely, unexpected, welcome basket. Beautiful, enclosed garden with lovely views at the back. Location wise, exactly where we wanted to be, a mile or so from Castleton and the cottage was very easy to find. Faultless : )

  • "Hope is a lovely village and Brinks a great place to stay."

    Plenty of places to eat just a stones throw from cottage and very well equipped Spar for when you want to eat in. Best takeaway Indian we have ever had from restaurant in village. The cottage was modern, very clean and owners had thought of everything we might need. Our dog was made very welcome and we were encouraged to use the owners lovely garden. Outside areas to sit and chill after a day's walking and all completely dog proof so not having to constantly watch. Don't be put off by cottage being on main road between Hope and Castleton, we found it very quiet and also having the owners next door was absolutely fine, there if you wanted anything but left us alone too, perfect hosts. Having stayed in many holiday cottages over the years I've concluded that the owners who clean and maintain their own cottages do a far better job than anyone employed to clean. All in all a fab week and highly recommend. We hope to return to Hope and Brinks.

It was very special to have interaction with local people and is highly valued.

    The picture of the outside does not do it justice. The owner is a keen gardener and visitors have access to use the beautiful garden, which has lovely views. We felt like it was a home from home and wanted for absolutely nothing, in fact as I went around the property, I was looking to see if I could find anything missed out that I might need. The only thing I could come up with that would be useful, was a slotted serving spoon! It really was that spot on, that this is all I could come up with.

    It is immaculately clean. Has so many extras provided. Dishwasher tablets, washing up liquids, tea towels, hand wash in the kitchen and utility room, washing capsules for washing machine. Full size toiletries in the bathroom. A welcome pack sits in the kitchen upon arrival, with bread, honey, biscuits, wine and chocolates. There is butter and milk in the fridge. As well as tea, coffee and sugar (not just little sachets). The garden is beautiful and we were fortunate enough to have good weather and were able to sit out, including having breakfast outdoors. There is a shed for keeping bikes in if you take them. The village of Hope has everything you require. A SPAR open till late and a few other little shops. There are a few lovely pubs which also sell food and an Indian restauraunt/take away as well as a Chinese. The slightly bigger village of Castleton is only a mile away and in daylight can be walked to by a path/field or alternately along the path at the side of the road. The whole area is perfect for walking or cycling and the cottage has maps which can be made use of. Alternately, Andy and Sarah (who own the cottage and live nextdoor, along with their friendly labrador) can give advise and directions. Wonderful short break had Friday - Monday. But also perfect for a longer stay.

Lovely polite friendly owners with their beautiful friendly dog Ellie.
