  • "A nice property that needs a good clean."

    This is a really good sized property in a lovely position – plenty of enjoyable walks from the door or within a short drive. On our visit in cold, wet March it was great to have the underfloor heating, although we’d have welcomed a rug in the main room (shown in the photos but actually the floor was bare). The wi-fi was great and the sofas were really comfy. We would have liked to be able to open the shutters to let some light into the downstairs bedroom, and a dustpan and brush would have been useful. The hosts were helpful and responsive when we needed their advice. We chose to ignore the reviews which have flagged up the state of cleaning in the property and unfortunately this was a mistake. There was a lot of dust on the floors and staircase, tiny bits of broken glass on the floor in the living area, the blinds were thick with dust and cobwebs, the bathroom mirrors were smeared and needed wiping, the oven top needed cleaning before we could use it, the oven gloves provided were filthy. The property needs a thorough clean between guests.

    Beds and furniture very comfortable. Children enjoyed the tree swing! Great selection of DVDs, kitchen very well equipped. Local area is lovely and lots to do nearby. The water pressure seemed a bit low in the showers and also would have been nice if part of the field at the back was cut so it could be used for football etc. Overall very nice stay, would love to return.

  • "The property whilst lovely and with lots of potential was absolutely filthy upon arrival."

    So much so that we had to clean the kitchen before we could use it. A few cobwebs here and there is fine but it was much worse than that. The downstairs was not secure. The internal door to the garage had warped and would not close properly. This meant that the only thing stopping someone from entering the property was a single padlock on the garage doors. Also we cannot recommend the property to anyone travelling with babies or young children due to the noise of the floors which we appreciate cannot be helped. This property needs updating significantly to be worth the price. We use Sykes regularly but this experience really put us off.

  • "This could be an amazing space but is sadly in need of some tlc inside and out."

    The path outside the back door was dangerously slippery on our arrival and one of our group almost fell. .We cleared wet leaves away as best we could but it was still slippery underfoot. There were weeds and moss growing in the eaves and we felt this probably contributed to black mould that was visible inside the upstairs bedrooms. Inside was not very clean and we had to wash pans, utensils etc before using them. We also had to wash inside drawers in the bedroom before we could unpack clothes into them. The upstairs ensuites would benefit from loo roll holders and towel holders next to the sinks. This could be a really lovely space if only given a bit of an upgrade and intensive cleaning.

  • "We noted the previous comments made about the effectiveness of the cleaning."

    We believe that things have improved. Realistically it is never going to be as easy to clean a barn conversion compared to most other buildings. We foolishly forgot to bring our "self catering kit" (which includes a sharp knife for the kitchen) with us. Otherwise the area is lovely and local amenities abound. I will give Hope Valley Ice Cream a plug - an informative and enjoyable visit to a working farm that is suffering from increasing energy bills and deserves to survive.

  • "We were generally very pleased with our stay."

    Just a few little niggles made it less than perfect, especially considering the price - which would have been £1000 dearer than it was if we’d booked to arrive the very next day instead! As a holiday property owner in France myself, I feel justified in making these observations as they are nothing that I don’t do/provide myself. For a self catering property with an otherwise fairly well equipped kitchen I find it extremely strange that heat proof oven cloths are not provided - what do people use? The provided drying cloths or hand towels? A plastic bowl for the kitchen sink would have been very useful, so there is a place to throw dregs etc. at the same time as using the sink to wash/soak or rinse something. When we first opened the dishwasher to begin loading, it absolutely stank! Either it hadn’t been used in a good while and hadn’t been left to air properly or there is a problem with the drains. Also the dishwasher is incredibly noisy - so, for other clients.. don’t set it to run just before bedtime! Two of our party observed that there was a film of dust across the floor of the shower ( twin room on mezzanine) - surely that shouldn’t have been there if the whole place had had a ‘Covid clean’ immediately before our arrival? The other mezzanine shower really needs anti slip mats or stickers in the shower and a bath mat for the floor tiles - we used a spare towel to avoid a nasty accident. On the plumbing theme - probably nothing you can do about this given the location but as a heads up for other guests… you cannot run a bath/shower in the family room and expect that the upstairs showers work at the same time. Ablutions need to be staggered! There were areas which were rather dusty ( under the beds) - again, strange if intensive cleaning is going on between clients. For the owner - Consider sorting out the curtain tracks in the family room and the doors on the ovens. On the positive side - the utility room on the ground floor was lovely and warm if the door is kept closed - the one load of washing that we did dried perfectly overnight. The wifi signal was pretty good - even with 6 or 7 of us using multiple media. The whole area was perfect and peaceful, the Barn is laid out well for a group to spend time together - we even managed to bake & decorate our own Jubilee cupcakes, without scales or bakeware. To round off, we would be very happy to return - as there is so much to do in the area that we never even touched upon - putting right the minor points above would easily earn a 5 star rating from us.

    We found the house in a clean condition, no concerns there. Parking is fine for three cars if you keep fairly close together. I was relieved to find the back door entrance is straight into the main living area - didn't have to carry everything up the stairs etc. Also gives good access to the outdoor seating area which was lovely. I was desperate to cut down a little sycamore tree which was obscuring the fab view. Beds were very comfortable- if you are v tall I would grab the massive downstairs bedroom. Great to have loads of ensuite bathrooms Kitchen was well equipped. We were a mixed generation family of 8 and it suited us v well. The area is very quiet - that said if you are a light sleeper it might be good to bring earplugs as the floors creak especially when the underfloor heating comes on. Could do with better lighting in kitchen corner but a minor niggle

  • "The property could accommodate up to 8 people over three floors."

    We were 6 staying during October half term week so paid premium rate and expected much better for the money. The barn had clearly not had a thorough clean before our arrival and some aspects of the property were unhygienic – the wood surrounding the sink on the island unit is in very poor condition, with what appeared to be black mould on the surface around the tap where water has soaked in over time making it impossible to clean properly; the back of the unit is similarly affected. The opening for the food waste bin accessed from a lid set into the worktop was also dirty. The dishwasher was very noisy, didn’t clean properly and on closer inspection the rotor arms were blocked with debris, and the filters clogged with slime and decaying food. One of the pillows was badly stained under the pillowcase and had no pillow protectors in place. There was dust on the bedroom floors, cobwebs in the kitchen and the flooring in the en-suite twin room was so filthy it had to be washed! There were safety issues due to two plug sockets in the floor in the sitting room which presented a trip hazard one of which was gaffer taped and lose. The light above the cooker could not be turned off an electrical safety issue. The oven did not work properly and took ages to get to temperature. There were no instructions for any of the appliances or the heating, which we became very problematic as some of the windows had broken latches and could not be kept open to provide cool air or ventilation. The pressure in the showers was poor and unacceptable. One of the mattresses was unfit for purpose as the coils could be felt through the mattress cover. I certainly would not recommend this property in its present condition. We were amazed to discover that a previous review in mid-2019 highlighted many of the same points, which have not been addressed. For the price we paid the property should have been faultless.

This told me that whoever is cleaning this barn isn't doing it properly and if I was the owner I would be furious to find this out via a review. I would use Sykes cottages again and have no problems with anything else but a used nappy.......really is not exceptable.

  • "Overall the cottage is nice, it's almost there, and if it had been half the price then probably we'd have just written off our gripes as going with the territory."

    However, when you pay a premium price for a rental you rather expect it to hit higher standards, and for it to deliver on the small things as well - and I'm afraid this cottage just didn't. To start with the positives: It's in a brilliant location to explore the blue john caves, castleton and Dovedale - everything is close by. Generally the cottage is comfortable, the downstairs master bedroom was lovely. The negatives (admittedly some are small irritations but at the price of this cottage I expect them to have been taken care of and not to exist at all): The cooker - was clearly old and abused - all the markings on the dials had worn off, so cooking was hit and miss, compounded by the fact that the bottom of the oven was totally warped out of shape affecting the heating of the oven, it took forever to get up to temperature. One of the window latches was broken so you couldn't keep it open. There was a large patch in the sitting room covered over with gaffer tape, presumably from the fixing point put through the ceiling of the room below - what for wasn't clear - punch bag...swing of some sort? The master bedroom was lovely, but the ensuite was very tired, mouldy, cracked tiles, a shower which couldn't be used for anything - totally let the suite down. No house manual of any sort - every time I've stayed somewhere they take the time to leave a manual - how the heating works, hot water, oven, Tv all the little quirks of a different house with a different set up. Nothing here - thermostats everywhere which we had no clue what they were for or how to operate. We managed but things would have been a lot easier and quicker with a manual. No guest book - again not essential but it's usually a great source of information from other guests as to where to go, where to eat, good local shops etc etc it doesn't take any effort on the part of the owners. The central island in the kitchen which houses the sink was too small to be useful, nowhere to put dirty plates and clean ones, mouldy due to lack of any water protection. Plenty of cupboards in the kitchen but they were all full - nowhere to put food shopping. Cleaning was hit and miss. Generally areas of the cottage looked tired and unloved, someone needs to spend some time giving it a bit of care and attention and love. It had the distinct feel of a rental property owned by absentee landlords. I might also suggest the owners spend a week or two living there, it might be an eye opener. Overall most issues were small niggles, though the kitchen and master en-suite do need sorting, and if the rental had been half the price most of the niggles wouldn't have registered. Unfortunately for this price you expect more and it didn't deliver. Won't be returning I'm afraid there's much better out there.

    But if I was to call out a few shortcomings they would be: - 1) The kitchen was not very well equipped, particularly a lack of pots, pans and bowls. The owner should just get a set from IKEA and make sure there is enough so that you can cook for 8 people with differing tastes. 2) The sink area needs updating and also the bin is very hard to access with the wooden stopper. The owner could simply attach a pull ring to the top of the wooden stopper to make it so much easier to access. 3) The bedrooms and bathrooms are in need of a facelift (particularly the bathrooms) 4) Showers are in awkward positions and shower controls are difficult to get right - too hot or too cold. Otherwise, a great property in a great location. Perfect for families or a group of friends. Nice local pubs which are friendly too. Great views from the cottage.

The things that let the property down were the cleanliness and the lack of maintenance. A bit more care and attention to the cleaning of dust and cobwebs could make it better and the broken shower in the double bedroom's ensuite needs to be repaired. We also weren't sure what could be recycled so more information about that for guests would be helpful. I also think that the garden area out of the back could be tidied up which would make the outside area more useable and attractive. We really enjoyed our stay in this property and had a relaxing week exploring the local area.

    On entering the ground floor bedroom we could see that the mirror on the dressing table was thick with dust together with the mirror in the en-suite (I did take a photo of this). There were cobwebs with dead spiders in the bathroom and the dust/cobwebs behind the settee in the lounge was pretty awful. Although I can appreciate that this is a barn there really is no excuse for the lack of cleaning in the property and really lets it down. The shower in the twin room also did not work and the hand held shower in the en-suite family room was useless. There was no guest book in the property giving you information about how things worked. All in all we had a good stay at the property but we would not return back unfortunately which is a shame as with a bit of care and attention this could be a top class place to stay.
