  • "Fantastic cottage."

    Lovely stay

    Reviewed by AlisonApr 2022

  • "Ideal for a summer break but after wet and windy weather it would have been lovely to have had a fire and both my husband and I couldn’t sit in the two chairs provided to read as they were more like dining chairs ."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean a doormat and boot tray in the porch would have an been an asset.

  • "Thanks so much for a lovely stay."

    It's really great to be able to stay in a place that is pet friendly as it adds to the experience for those of us who want to share our special time away with our favourite canine friend. I was really grateful for all the amenities supplied as I had a couple of dear friends over for dinner the night after my friend's mother's funeral. I will definitely book here again in the future. Thanks again.

  • "Our 2nd visit to Pine Cottage in 5 months."

    Beautiful location and a great base for either walks in the locality or travelling 30 mins to some of the Peak Districts other gems. Felt very at home in the cottage. Well equipped and provided everything we needed. New patio area looks stunning. View from patio down Bradford Dale is amazing. The gas fire needs some attention. Either needs replacing or taking out so that a real fire can be made. Cottage much cleaner this visit thank you. Hope to visit again soon

  • "This is our third visit to Pine Cottage as it is the perfect cottage for us in our favourite Derbyshire village with lots of places we want to visit close by."

    Warm, clean, comfortable, well equipped with perfect walks from the front door. Youlgreave has 3 pubs, Post Office & lovely shop with local produce & takeaway and 2 cafes! We had beautiful weather last week & made good use of the south facing back patio with views, will definitely return.

  • "Nothing drastically wrong but a few improvements would have made the stay more enjoyable."

    Described as end of terrace cottage but in fact terraced. Smell of dogs noticeable downstairs No washing line. Living room seating very uncomfortable, especially the single chairs. No head support and after a day out you need to collapse into something more comfortable and not sit upright with No head support. Shower curtain rail kept collapsing. Carpet in bathroom!! Smelt of urine. No cleaning materials for toilet or kitchen worktops/sink. Tablecloth would have been a good idea for table to save food getting into grooves On the plus side, back bedroom spacious and comfortable . Plenty of hot water. Heating very efficient. No problems parking outside cottage. Kitchen well equipped. Nice to see signs of improvements ongoing.

    Poor quality everything, smelt of dog urine on the awful chairs and stained , human urine smelling bathroom carpet, sofa small and uncomfortable, patio overgrown, generally awful

    When you telephoned you were offered an additional clean which you refused, previous and subsequent clients have not found these issues. The cleaning company is very experienced and have always been very proactive in their communication about any problems. We are sorry that the cottage was not to your liking. Property Owner

    It’s a lovely spacious cottage. The back bedroom had a amazing view, comfortable large bed and plenty of cupboard and drawer space. The kitchen had everything you need. If I had one bit of advice for the owner i would change the carpet in the bathroom to hard floor. We would definitely stay again

    Pine cottage is well placed in the village, especially if you have dogs. It was very comfortable with enough space for the three of us. Will book again if going to Youlgreave

    It was within walking distance for the village shop and 3pubs. The directions to the cottage were accurate and easy to follow. There was also milk, tea, coffee and sugar for when we arrived.

  • "Great cottage but let down by poor housekeeping."

    The ignition on the oven didn’t work and there was no gas supply to the oven. The freezer box was frozen over. Cutlery drawer was filthy so that had to be cleaned out before using. The overall cleanliness of the cottage let it down.

  • "The place was very clean and comfortable."

    Everything (including how to work the heating) was explained very well so we could use it with ease. The hosts actually provided us with tea/coffee and a little milk which was a really lovely touch. Great location and very easy to drive to Bakewell and other walks around the Peak District.

  • "Yes, we had 3 light bulbs blow and only one bulb in the property we were able to replace But the property was very comfortable the bathroom could have done with a shower."

    But were happy to get the property as it was the only one left to rent in that area we wanted, as we were booked in another cottage and the owner had passed away and that was canceled.

  • "Lovely clean cottage in a fabulous village in a beautiful area."

    Only feedback would be to put up a hook for the over bath shower so you can have a proper shower. Other than that fab

  • "Location was perfect, cottage had everything we needed."

    It was comfortable for 2 people but would have been a bit cosy for any more. Just enough hot water for both of us to have a bath (there is no shower). I assumed due to the pictures that the cottage had a double bed in each room, but missed the fine print saying you had to specifically ask for that, so that was a bit annoying. Also, being a pet-friendly property the living room has a pretty strong odour of dogs, and there is quite a lot of animal hair throughout - the carpets could really do with a deep clean. The back terrace was lovely, overlooking the hills and south-facing so got good sun all day. Would be even better if it had a BBQ or brazier for evenings. There is a wild swimming spot in the village and lots of good hikes nearby. The wifi was a bit of a hassle but we didn't really care, being on a break from the city :)

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry for any confusion over the arrangement of the beds and will try to make this more clear so that future guests can have the set-up that works best for them. We will also talk with our cleaners regarding the dog hair. Thank you also for your other suggestions regarding possible improvements for the future. Property Owner

  • "Cottage was lovely and very clean and well equipped."

    The seating in the lounge was not adequate. It was very uncomfortable. It would benefit from 2 sofas rather than 1 very small sofa and 2 occasional chairs. Beds were also very small but this was due to small bedrooms. Shower was rubbish, it did not attach to the wall. Cottage was very well equipped. Youlgrave is a lovely village and very near to Bakewell. The bulls head pub is fantastic, good food and real ale. We would return if the aforementioned things were addressed.

    Thank you for your feedback. Pine cottage is a small traditional stone built cottage, and as such the rooms are quite small in keeping with the style of build. With regards to the shower, it is clearly advertised in the listing as a hand held shower over a bath. The beds are a standard double and a king size (which can be split into twin beds). Sorry if this was not satisfactory. Property Owner

  • "We have had many holidays with Sykes, all very good, but Pine Cottage exceeded all expectations."

    We love the village of Youlegreave and our holiday cottage was perfect.. Decorated tastefully maintaining all the character and charm. Very clean and well equipped . Warm and comfortable with every need catered for. We were able to park our car outside was a bonus. The view from the back of the property is perfect and enjoyed having morning coffee outside in the enclosed sunny patio even in October! Lovely walks from the front door, we especially love the River Bradford walk. The Bulls Head Pub only a short walk away serves lovely food, also Post office for your milk and newspapers and a lovely deli grocery shop, with home made produce.The only problem was that a week was not long enough, and we will definitely return to this perfect cottage!

    Booking was very easy and the use of a key safe is an excellent and trouble free way of access to the cottage.

  • "Pine Cottage is an ideal hideaway with wonderful views."

    The cottage itself was as described and had many personal touches with plenty of added bonuses making it more homely than most other holiday accommodation. Roadside parking was easy just outside the front door. Overall we enjoyed our stay, but there were however two downsides for us. This especially being the sofa and chairs in the living room. These really were the most uncomfortably experienced and not ideal after busy hectic days when wanting to just relax in comfort (In fact we used two of our folding camping chairs as they did the job better!). Also, the water pressure in the shower was almost useless - but suppose it did the job, eventually. Having said that, We would not hesitate to book Pine Cottage again should we being going back to that area.

  • "A lovely little cottage with stunning view."

    In general it was clean, but when we arrived the dustbin was full, as was the food waste bin.There were instructions on how to dispose of recycling at local sites, but no indication when bin day was. We had to find out the information on-line. Also we had to call the property agent as there was a serious leak from the toilet waste pipe, which, judging from the staining on the ceiling below, looked like it had been a problem for some time. However they were quick to rectify. The wi-fi signal was intermittent.

  • "The cottage was quaint and mostly as expected."

    When we arrived just inside the front door it was clear someone had been painting as there was paint pot, brush and sheet in the front porch as well as a strong smell of fresh paint. We put the bits under the stairs to get them our of the way. There also was no working bulb in the upstairs landing light. We didn't like the fact that there is no bin to put your recycling rubbish in and are asked to take it away with you (We're meant to be on holiday). And the hand held shower is a pain but useable. And there is a massive cobweb that has not been cleaned by the fireplace. Otherwise we loved it there. It was very cozy and comfortable. It makes a good base for exploring matlock bath. Everything else was clean and well maintained. The sofa could be a little bigger/comfort but ok for what it is. We had a lovely time here.
