  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Orchard View over a long weekend."

    The cottage was very comfortable and clean. The kitchen was very well equipped with plenty cups, plates, utensils and glasses. The beds were comfortable. The whole house was more than sufficiently warm which was important bearing in mind how cold it was at times outside. The house is situated in a lovely village which was a pleasure to walk around. The local pub (the Sycamore) is well worth visiting as they did some great food. Also thanks to the owner for personally coming to welcome us and running through the facilities.

    Thank you very much, your comments are greatly appreciated. It was lovely to meet you, I am delighted you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

    Mrs Gosling was a very friendly, helpful host (lives offsite, so it's very private) who also very kindly had decorated the cottage with Christmas decorations for us. The cottage is also in a great location within 20-30 mins from all key places to visit in the Peak District. All in all a fantastic New Year's holiday and we will look forward to returning in the future.

  • "The cottage was not clean."

    A thick layer of dust covered many surfaces. Long spiders’ webs dangled from ceilings. The frying pan and oven trays had food and grease stuck on and had to be scrubbed and put through an intensive clean in the dishwasher. Bedding. Polyester cotton, and towels, were old and tired. The white bath mats were dingy grey. A loose sheet was put on between the duvet cover and bed sheet in the main bedroom. Why? Had the cover not been changed? The ironing board was disgusting and the mop too unhygienic to use. Extractor fan dripping grease. Both should be humanely destroyed. It felt like we spent a week in a house furnished from a house clearance, in spite of considerable rental cost. The welcome item was a packet of Aldi biscuits. Minimal investment but high return for the owner. Lovely village and pub but very unhappy with this house. We have had several Sykes cottages over the last 18 months and delighted with all, until this. I took photos on arrival of all of above.

    We are sorry that you were unhappy with your stay, we work very hard, and a lot of time and effort goes into the property. We try to endeavour to make sure that our guests enjoy their visit. Property Owner

    The cottage had a very cosy feel to it, and all the basics we needed. There was plenty of crockery! We had lovely weather for the barbeque. All of the bedrooms were great! There were lots of leaflets on local days out (if you hadn't planned before coming). Lots of small bits and pieces that really make you feel welcome! I'd highly recommend this as a place to stay! The only minor drawback, was the WIFI not quite reaching the room with the king size bed (with the en suite). Didn't have a mobile network connection from there either (on Three's network).
