    Ideal place to stay and unwind.

  • "Truly first class accommodation."

    The location and setting with the glorious views was second to none. Lesley and Mick are lovely hosts. Their accommodation is very well laid out, comfortable and with all the facilities you could need. I highly recommend the Queens Arms in the village that serve excellent meals, staff and locals were very friendly. If you are an age qualifying for a buss pass, we are, there is a bus stop yards (metres if you are younger) at the end of the short road. We used it for visits to Buxton, Bakewell, Matlock and the picturest village of Ashford in the Water. You can appreciate the views without driving yourself. We had a fabulous stay and I highly recommend Horse Mill Lodge.

    The open plan arrangement was perfect; warm, comfortable and convenient with plenty of room. Good, clean, and up to date facilities. Secure car parking off the road and close to the door, so no dragging cases up long paths! There was even a snow shovel by the door so that we could dig ourselves out on the day we left. Thanks! Excellent walks from the door and by car we visited Jodrell Bank and Lyme Park. We will be back. Graham and Jan

    The position and parking were excellent. It was a very muddy, wet week but found plenty of quiet roads to investigate. The village pub provided good food and was very friendly. The lodge was very comfortable with an excellent bed and good facilities for the 3 nights we cooked a meal. A place worth returning to.

    Clean, contemporary, uncluttered: views "to die for", as they say. Well equipped, and with a very good woodburner. I've stayed in a number of holiday cottages, and I've never found one in which I felt so immediately at home. Fantastic base for walking - plenty of superb walks from the door, and the A6 was easy to cross, as there's a central reservation just where you need it. I had minor reservations about being comparatively close to the main road, but honestly, you could barely hear the cars at all, as the Lodge has perfect modern double glazing. As I said to Lesley, if it had had another room, I would have wanted to buy it!!

    The views were stunning and the setting was quiet which was just what I needed.The facilities were good and the shower was superb! My only ‘gripe’ was that the fact that the property was upstairs was not obvious enough in the agents advert. This gave me anxiety after I had booked because I have a mobility limitation and I hadn’t realised there were stairs until I ‘read the small print’. However, the stairs were not steep and they were carpeted and had a strong handrail which made things easier for me , plus the proprietor was very kind and offered help if I needed it. All in all a very lovely place to relax - I would definitely recommend it and would like to stay again. Thank you

    Thank you for your comments, we have worked hard and take great pride in ensuring all our visitors have the very best customer experience in all areas. We have let Horse Mill Lodge through Sykes for 6 years and we have many valued returning guests. We consistently receive 100% feedback in all areas; this can be seen on the Sykes website. On looking at your comments, it came as a surprise to us to read that you were somewhat disappointed in the heating system and internet speed. We have contacted owner services at Sykes as we were mystified by these comments because our property has never received anything other than high praise for being so warm and cosy, and the internet is regularly commented on as being very good as it is fibre optic. It seems you chose not to use the log burner during your stay but we must add that the log burner is not necessary to supplement the central heating. As explained to you on your arrival and in the welcome pack, the central heating is high output and controlled by the guests via a room thermostat. Due to our excellent feedback score, we have not previously found it necessary to respond to customers comment. On this occasion however, in the interest of accuracy and fairness, we have requested that Sykes add our response to your feedback to ensure our future guests are provided with accurate information to enable them to make an informed decision on where to spend their valuable holidays.

  • "We have stayed here 4 times now and each time has been a lovely experience ."

    The accommodation is in a lovely setting and is a joy to return back to after our days out in the Derbyshire Peak District. We are getting use to the local area and are finding lots of walks on the doorstep of this property . The siting of this property within the Peak District is very central so various landmarks are easy to reach with a short car journey which is nice that you haven't got to be in the car for long treks . Plenty of trails about where you can walk or Bike ride traffic free. The property is certainly a place we will be coming back to it is clean well kept and very comfortable with nice owners who are in the background if you need them .

  • "This holiday home with lovely views of the surrounding countryside from the upper floor accommodation is very well designed to give 1st class living."

    Very clean and well equipped and secure. Lesley & Mick did all we needed to be welcoming and left us essentials in the home (like shortbread, tea, coffee, milk etc etc). We arrived to find the surroundings snow covered and even more picturesque then our memories of the Peak District allowed. The next too short days we were exploring the nearby dales and visited villages and views we wish we had more time to enjoy. Horse Mill Lodge is highly recommended and we would enjoy a return as soon as we can manage it. John & Pat CV34

  • "Horse Mill Lodge was a very cosy cottage with wonderful views (very snowy when we arrived)."

    It was very well equipped and was always warm, with or without the wood-burning stove going. The welcome was good with tea, coffee, milk and biscuits on arrival which we thought was a nice touch. The bed was very comfortable. We liked the village of Taddington where we received a warm welcome in the local pub, The Queen's Head. It was an ideal base from which to explore Derbyshire.

    This was our first Christmas away from home and it exceeded all our expectations. The little touches such as a fibre optic Christmas tree, mince pies and mulled wine all added to our enjoyment. Mick and Lesley gave us a very warm welcome and also gave us ideas for several walks that we could do whilst we were there alongside recommendations for eating out.

    It is one of the cleanest places we have stayed in. The facilities are first class. Lovely large bathroom and big comfortable bed. The log burner is very cosy to use although not needed as the central heating is adequate and is on at various times throughout the day. Parking is nice and secure in its own space with a gate. Beautiful quiet village close to Buxton and Bakwell and plenty more great places to visit. The owners are really welcoming and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it as an excellent place to stay.
