  • "Holiday Property did not contain any emergency information, ie."

    nearest Dr., dentist, A&E, petrol station, shop, etc. Owners of property did not contact us at all during our stay

    Dear mr Newberry we are so pleased that Spingle Barn met your expectations. We just wanted to mention, we went in to look for the customer information regarding dentists, a&e etc, apologies previous guests had unclipped it from the guest information and had left it in one of the drawers on the landing by the telephone. Sorry it had not been put back in the guest information file where it should live. Might we also mention we provide a 24" touch screen computer with high speed broadband so guests can access the internet for any other information they require. Sorry we didn't come round to see you we are unsure what the best method is, most people like to be left in peace and quiet to enjoy their holiday and we are only a text or an email away if ever needed. Best wishes Property Owner

  • "Keys were not there when we arrived tired and owner was a bit curt on the phone but quickly sorted it out."

    Property lacked an airer which would have been helpful for drying clothes but otherwise the utility/ games room was great. The cottage was fantastic for all our family and we had a wonderful time. We appreciated the fruit bowl and muffins on arrival too.

    Thank you for the great score and feedback. Apologies that the keys were not where they should have been when you arrived. One of the ladies helping us that day left in a bit of a rush because of a family emergency and got the keys jumbled. Connected to the guest bathroom on the ground floor Spingle has a wonderful underfloor heated drying room. There are hooks to dry both wet coats and hiking boots. In the games room there is also a super sized Grundig heat pump tumble dryer. Property Owner

    Outdoor areas can be used even if it rains and the games room is a bonus. It’s an ideal location for exploring the Peak District or just walking from the house.

  • "I was really happy with the web site and booking process with Sykes Holiday Cottages."

    After setting up my account I was prompted every step of the way. The property was a joy and great for large groups. The property was spacious and modern but this did not detract from the authentic barn atmosphere. Although we didn't meet the owner until the end of our stay, we were delighted to receive the home made cake, fruit bowl, wine and milk in the property. The property was a delight and I think the owners had thought of everything to make sure you had a comfortable stay. We had much fun using 'Alexa.' The property was in a great location for discovering the surrounding area. There was only one negative. The bathroom extractor fans started up everytime you walked into the bathroom and did not turn off for 5 mins. Whilst I appreciate the importance of these, it would be great to be able to turn them off at night. Despite this, we would be really happy to return, particularly as the owner promises there will soon be a games room.

  • "Spingle Barn is well located and appointed for families and friends (including dogs who liked being able to stretch their legs in reasonably enclosed garden)."

    We have stayed in numerous cottages that sleep 6 or more, but none (like SB) that allow a group of adults all the facilities and room they need for a really comfortable stay whatever the weather. Having adequate cutlery, crockery, cookware and glasses for a large group (with dishwasher and appropriately sized fridge and freezer) is simple, but something so many facilities forget. SB had more than provided for these. Local pub friendly with good food and takes dogs in public bar. Good walks on your doorstep and lovely towns nearby. We were all very happy and comfortable in the barn and in lovely area.

  • "The location was great, but that was the only positive."

    Definitely not a 5 tick property as Sykes advertise. I found the living area to be on the small size for 8 adults and a 3 and 1 year old, and it’s not suitable for toddlers. We had to clean the kitchen (mouldy lettuce found in the cupboard, cobwebs on the walls, grease behind the hob) and hoover the rug in the living area. The automatic lights in the bathrooms were rather annoying - stayed on for 5 minutes after leaving so not the best for night time convenience, this kept waking my little boy up as he was sharing a room with us. We also couldn’t cook our full Christmas dinner as the oven was rubbish and only had two shelves, not what you would expect for a rental of this size. We have been on many self catering holidays, and were very disappointed with this one, particularly with the cleanliness and the price we paid for it.

    Many thanks for your valuable feedback, we are very disappointed that one of our properties has seemingly let us down and not provided you with the experience that we had hoped for. We have contacted the owner to ensure the issues are rectified. Property Owner

  • "Spingle Barn is a gem of a holiday home , offering every comfort and being very roomy, accommodating 6 adults, 2 toddlers and 1 infant."

    The quality of furnishings and equipment in the barn were of exceptional quality and we really appreciated the nice gesture of the "Easter Welcome Pack" and the beautiful flower displays. Despite snow and rain we ventured out every day and then returned to a warm log fire and a very comfortable holiday home. Monyash is a lovely village with a very welcoming public house, a lovely cafe, a play park and lots of areas to explore with links to its history. It is well placed for visits to Chatsworth, beautiful Bakewell, Matlock Bath, to name a few, and to venture on a variety of walks across the breath-taking countryside. We certainly enjoyed our week at Spingle Barn and hope to return there again. It was the perfect place for my family to meet up and celebrate three birthdays and Easter.

About the location


Bakewell 4.5 miles; Buxton 8 miles.

Monyash is a charming Derbyshire village built around the village green in the heart of the Peak District National Park, boasting a 17th century village pub which serves good food. The attractive market town of Bakewell is just under 5 miles away and offers visitors a good selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as frequent local farmers' markets. Bakewell is situated within the Peak District National Park and is ideally placed for exploring this beautiful region. Both the rugged Dark Peak and the softer limestone White Peak are within easy reach, and Alton Towers, Britain's premier theme park, is only a short drive away. There are many stately homes to visit including Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall to mention just a few, while the impressive caverns in nearby Castleton and Little John's burial place in Hathersage are also well worth a visit. It is beautiful walking country with several of the Peak District's famous dales close by including Dovedale, Millers Dale, Monsal Dale and the stunning Lathkill Dale. The Tissington Trail is also nearby.
