    “We had a great time with the superb isolated location with great views.”

    ...

    Sykes responded promptly to communication. recent garden furniture was a real bonus. Description does not make clear that 2 bedrooms have skylights not proper windows, this was disappointing for the adult guests in our party. Other than the 2 master bedrooms, the 2 secondary bedrooms (with single beds) have poor ventilation due to the skylights/high velux windows only. One of the double beds was broken, ( the top section was not fixed on.) Clothes airers are still broken - indoors one for over a year according to previous feedback, outdoors too, (even a normal old-fashioned clothes line would be better than nothing.) Carpets smell musty downstairs. We had to bring lights from upstairs into the lounge to be able to read. An outside sun umbrella would be of benefit. Kitchen was well- equipped. Showers are good. Barbecue was small and missing bits - we had to fashion our own grill surface from 2x disposables. Overall we enjoyed our stay and had a great time, in a rural cottage we were not expecting anything fancy, but for the price for a week that we paid we would expect these fairly basic straightforward things to be fixed - and not keep recurring in the comments/feedback.

About the location

PRIESTCLIFFE

Bakewell 7 miles.

Priestcliffe is a small hamlet of farms and dwellings, sited between Taddington, the River Wye and Monsal Head. This is the scenic heart of the Peak District, with high limestone hills offering fantastic walks. Monsal Head is a famous beauty spot, with a magnificent view down Monsal Dale and up the Wye Valley. The position is at a spot where the Wye, on its passage eastwards to meet the Derwent, encounters a band of harder rock and is forced to make a sharp turn southwards and carve its way through a high ridge of limestone. The view is spectacular, with the river far below, winding through a steep-sided and often rocky valley. The route of the former Midland Railway makes its way along Monsal Dale and was carried by a viaduct over the river and into a tunnel which goes right beneath Monsal Head. This is now part of the Monsal Trail, a popular route with walkers. The attractive market town of Bakewell is just 7 miles away and offers visitors a good selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as frequent local farmers’ markets. An ideal location for exploring the Peak District National Park.
