    It was clean and warm in the cold weather . The address needs to be changed to ‘ The Old Shop ‘ Google apparently takes you somewhere 30 miles away if you just type ‘The Shop’ even overriding the correct postcode ! Full marks also to the Sycamore local pub for food and drink . Parwich is also a lovely village . Great stay . Great location

  • "We had a wonderful stay at The Old Shop."

    It was everything that we had hoped for and more. The layout with a sitting room attached to the kitchen and dining area allowed us to mingle easily and the upstairs room became our quiet area. The games room was great for a bit of friendly competition. Everything worked so well - the kitchen is really well equiped - coped easily with xmas dinner for 9. The place was spotlessly clean, with calm and relaxed decor and lovely and warm. It felt like home from the moment we walked in. The bedrooms are comfortable and cosy. The central heating is zoned and easy to use. As we were having an early Christmas the addition of a beautifully decorated fresh tree was really appreciated. The village and the local area are beautiful with lots of options for walks of all levels. The owner was great at communicating and really helpful in advance of arrival. We are a family of 3 generations and The Old Shop is easily the best house we have rented for our family gathering; we hope to return.

    The house was just as we hoped from the description, the location was ideal with lots to do in the area and a lovely peaceful village to unwind in. Highlights included walking at Dovedale, the playground and farmyard at Chatsworth House, kayaking at Carsington Water and the Sycamore inn for dinner (twice!)

    The lock on the upstairs shared bathroom would be improved by a proper bolt; also a non-slip mat for the bath. The kitchen was overall very well equipped, but the steamer is really inadequate for a large group. A bigger one with an extra layer would facilitate vegetable cooking much more quickly. Otherwise - excellent!

  • "What a wonderful cottage located in the most beautiful village."

    We spent the bank holiday weekend at the Old Shop celebrating a friends 50th birthday. It was incredibly comfortable - I suffer with a bad back and actually travel with a thick mattress topper which I didn’t have to use as the beds were all so well padded and perfect for a good nights sleep. Great facilities with more than enough kitchen equipment including two fridges to keep the fizz cold! The owner was very helpful and messaged me about the heating upstairs during our stay to check we were warm enough. The weather was also wonderful - we went paddle boarding on Carsington water and got sun burnt. The local pub was also welcoming although we ate at the Royal Oak which was about 20 mins away and offered more veggie options. Everyone in the group said they would recommend the Old Shop and we would all go back for a return visit!

    We were a party of nine and there was plenty of space for everyone. Parking outside for 3 cars. Within walking distance of a friendly pub with good food, plus a small shop selling basics. The games room was great fun as we had lots of rainy days! No issues whatsoever but to make it even better a couple more smaller saucepans would be useful and a short pool cue please!

This was obviously no ones fault and didn’t hamper our stay in beautiful Parwich, we would definitely like to go back and have all our family with us next time. My only negative comment would be that getting hold of anyone at Sykes usually meant a 30 minute hold on the phone and then not really getting any sort of answer, I appreciate these are difficult times but when I rang the sales line I seemed to to get through straight away and then got transferred for my 30 minute wait.

The property

This is a clever conversion of the old village shop, a garage and a barn into one beautifully designed spacious detached cottage, right in the centre of the pretty village of Parwich.

When first entering the cottage, the exposed brickwork gives a real sense of history, yet the contemporary furnishings bring it right up to date.

All the bedrooms are tastefully decorated with a light and airy feel, and have lovely views over this attractive village.

The main bathroom is the perfect place for a luxurious soak in its beautiful bath, and the second sitting room tucked on the first floor, with its comfy sofas and woodburning stove, makes a wonderful place to sit back and relax with your friends, or perhaps escape them for a while!

The beautifully-designed open plan kitchen is fully equipped, with an island breakfast bar, a large dining table and a spacious and comfortable seating area, so the whole space is a lovely social spot to get together.

French doors lead from here out to the sheltered courtyard with patio furniture, ideal for a barbecue, and from here you can access the games room with a full size pool table and table football.

Bikes can also be stored safely here.

Should one of your group have limited mobility, it’s good to know there’s a ground floor twin room, and a ground floor wet room which has wide access.

The downstairs bedroom room also features French doors opening out to the courtyard.

Parwich is an award-winning village, with its beautiful stone buildings and neat gardens set around an old pond and spacious village green, plus a quaint local pub.

There’s lots of attractions nearby: if it’s walking or cycling you enjoy, then there are many trails, including the High Peak Trail and Tissington Trail which follow the routes of former railway lines.

The Roystone Grange Archaeology Trail is north of the village and is perfect for keen history seekers.

Chatsworth House and Alton Towers are a short drive away and within easy reach are the beautiful Derbyshire Dales, making this property an ideal getaway all year round.
