  • "A shame we had to leave early, the biscuits and milk were a nice surprise on arrival."

    The cottage was lovely and clean and Smokie our dog really enjoyed exploring the garden area.

  • "The only thing we found was the bed was not comfortable and too small at 4’6”"

  • "Fantastic cottage with all facilities provided."

    Our only concern(s) the bedroom would benefit from the owners providing a column fan (we took òur own). The double mattress has seen better days, not conducive for a good sleep and actually creeks.

  • "Kestrel Cottage exceeded our expectations."

    It was more spacious than we anticipated, comfortable and thoughtfully equipped. The one hundred and eighty degree view from the patio garden was stunning.

  • "Very enjoyable stay and we will certainly return, however there were a couple of niggles!"

    1. Coomfy bed but it creaks without fail 2. The green fire exit light in the bedroom was VERY intrusive when trying to sleep. I realise there is little if anything to be done about this safety requirement. Overall, a wonderful cottage

    The fixtures and facilities are all fantastic. We will definitely book again.

  • "The cottage was well appointed and spotlessly clean ..."

    The cottage was well appointed and spotlessly clean The underfloor heating meant that it was always cozy and warm The only improvement I would suggest is that the bed was a king size instead of a double I would recommend the cottage and hope to book with Sykes again in the future as the service they provide is excellent

  • "We had a great time."

    The property is very nice, we loved everything about it. The only thing I would add is a mirror in the bedroom where one can see more than just the face. There's a lovely mirror above a chest of drawers but way too high. The sofa didn't feel particularly comfortable, and we couldn't get cosy with the blanket as you can tell that dogs go on there... This is ideal for dog owners. But I'm not complaining. Next time, I would take my own blankets. We never got to meet the owners to thank them for letting us stay and congratulate them for having such a lovely accommodation. Please extend our gratitude.

  • "We stayed at Kestrel Cottage last week of Oct."

    It was perfect for the two of us and our Puggle. The garden is dog friendly for our size dog. Amassing views from the terrace where we made sure we had at least one drink a day, even if we wrapped up in blankets. Lots of info in cottage of where to go, For us Rudyard Lake was a great day . Although Bakewell was a good town visit parking was a big issue, but worth it for the cake. Longnor shop has the essentials but found ourselves going through Buxton most days which has Sainsburys and Morrisons. Pooles Caven and Buxton country park also a good walk. If you are looking for Peace this is it. If we did this area again this cottage is a must.

    In a beautiful location with amazing views from patio. Only tiny negative was that, although cottage was geared up for 2 adults, dining table was very small.

  • "Great addition to have Smart TV, we were able to logon to Netflix, needed to be reminded to sign out at end of the stay."

    Also 1 more gate at the beginning of the 'alley' would make the patio area totally secure for a small dog, I kept Bob the Terrier on a very long leash just in case he shot off down there as he could easily have jumped on the wall and out into the car park and main farm lands, I never take take risks in the countryside. The patio area was the best we have ever experinced in 35 years of holidaying together, sunrise and the mist was pure magic.(if you were awake at 5 am like me) Please pass on my comments to the owner.

  • "This cute one bedroom cottage is ideal for a stay in the peak district."

    The views are absolutely amazing and the accommodation had everything you would ever need and more! From the complimentary biscuits on arrival to the under floor heating, this place is a must for a relaxing stay away. The cottage is close to all the touristy towns but far enough away so you feel you are in the middle of nowhere. The owners could not do enough for us. Next time....we stay for longer.

    We had a lovely break and would undoubtedly stay here again if we ever come back to the area. Booking with Sykes was easy and pain free, all the necessary information was supplied both on the app and via email, I never had a single question because the info provided was so thorough but I'm sure if I had the answers would have been prompt as well! Thanks to both Sykes and the cottage owner for giving us a much needed and relaxing holiday in 2020!

    The walks were a bit taxing as we are not used to hills in Suffolk. We had several trips out and the Peak District was beautiful even on the rainy days. The local pubs were very accepting of dogs and very welcoming in these Covid times.

  • "Wow! What a stunning place this is."

    The setting is absolutely beautiful with incredible views across the valley towards the hills. We spent every evening of our seven nights admiring the surroundings from the patio garden whilst enjoying a meal..a glass of wine or a coffee...often sitting out until after 10.30 as the weather was kind to us. Very private too. The cottage was well equipped and the owners had thought of everything. Even leaving milk in the fridge and a lovely packet of biscuits along with tea and coffee so you can enjoy a brew as soon as you arrive. The furniture is comfortable and attractive..the bed is really comfy too. Plenty of storage. Large shower cubicle.. fluffy white towels. Patio doors open straight from the bedroom...each morning we opened the curtains to that lovely view. Often visited by the inquisitive cows in the field below the garden. On the evenings that we didn't dine outside we moved the dining table into the bedroom so that we could enjoy the views from the opened patio doors whilst eating our meal. We didnt watch much TV...instead we listened to the radio which was provided. Lots of lovely walks straight from the cottage . Or a great base for enjoying walks in the surrounding area. SIMPLY PERFECT.

    However that said we do love walking and this a superb spot to walk. The scenery is absolutely stunning and nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. We would recommend the pub ‘The Packhorse Inn’ at Crowdecote who offer a warm welcome and superb ambiance

  • "A clean and comfortable cottage in a lovely area."

    As the cottage is still very new, all the furnishings and fittings are in excellent condition. Very well-planned accommodation, spacious bedroom, good en-suite, and an outstandingly good, fully enclosed patio with modern rattan furniture and gorgeous views. Brilliant for a couple and a dog. The cottage is well placed for visiting any area within the Peaks, and is not far from Buxton for shopping and culture. We had a great time.
