  • "Gace cottage was everything we were expecting."

    It was a lovely cottage in a beautiful location. We had a lovely relaxing holiday. Our little dog was absolutely shattered at the end of the week. Thank you Sally

  • "Garden steep (handrails will be fitted but needs a note now)."

    Would have liked a washing machine. Could freezer go and washer put in? (how many people actually use a freezer?)

    Thank you for your feedback. The freezer you mention is actually a fridge freezer so this cannot be removed as a fridge is much needed in self catering accommodation. Re the washing machine - this is not listed in the cottage description. Regarding the garden, fortunately there are a few levels and I have placed the main furniture on the lowest, accessible level, which also happens to be a lovely sun trap :) I hope that you had a lovely week up in the Peaks. Thank you for your booking. Sally Property Owner

    We were visiting the area walking and would have liked to have washed our muddy clothes

    Thank you for your feedback. Sorry you felt that the absence of a washing machine was disappointing, but this is not listed in the cottage description. Thanks. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage in the heart of the Peak District with walks right from your doorstep."

    The owner had left us a bundle of treats, including wine, chocolates and biscuits, whcih was very kind of her. We had a lovely holiday with long walks, followed by a good night's sleep on comfortable beds. Good fridge and freezer space and warm water. Please note that the stairs are steep and care needs to be taken when coming out of the bedrooms (as you are straight into the stairs). We are very grateful to the owner for allowing us to take our dog, as this is the make or break for us in choosing a cottage. She rightly has 'doggy rules' such as no dogs upstairs. I would recommend this cottage to all, but if you do visit, please do respect the owner's wishes of no dogs upstairs. I understand from the owner that some have not been respecting this rule and I would hate for this to ruin things by dogs not being allowed in the future. Please remember it is someone else's home and respect it as you would respect your own.

  • "Cottage in lovely spot in Tideswell, which is a well-served village with plenty of facilities."

    Easy parking. Cottage is quite small and has difficult steps, both in the garden and in the house, so not really suitable for very young children or the elderly. Cottage not as clean as we would have liked but owner quick to take on board our feedback and very approachable, so I would anticipate this improving fairly swiftly. Lounge would benefit from better lighting and cosy lamps.

  • "+s - Great location in the village - good selection of DVDs and games - easy to park -s - cleanliness of cottage was poor."

    We complained and was offered a re-clean but we declined as all our stuff was unpacked by that time and we wanted to relax. - Photographs are out of date. Cottage is very tired and needs a re-vamp. - BBQ hadn’t been cleaned so we could not use it. Apparently it is the responsibility of the previous guest to clean it so be warned if they don’t do it, you either have to clean it yourself or not use it. - cottage is very small. It would be very cramped for 2 couples and a dog. - Dogs are not allowed upstairs so if your pooch likes to sleep in your bedroom, that’s not permitted.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. I'm very disappointed to hear that you were not happy with the cleanliness of the cottage. In well over 200 bookings I have not ever had any comments apart from how clean the property is. I highly value and respect my cleaner and have seen first hand the excellent job that she does. I can only apologise for the one strand of my cleaner's hair that you found upstairs and the small mark on one of kitchen chair cushions. I did offer two re-cleans where I would have happily rectified both issues for you straight away but you declined both of these offers. In my welcome information which I emailed out to you before your stay I ask that you let me know directly if there are any issues so I can resolve them ASAP as the comfort of my guests is paramount. You did not raise these issues directly with me at any point despite having my contact details. You only contacted Sykes asking for a full refund despite being offered re-cleans on two occasions. You were also offered a refund twice should the cleanliness of the cottage contribute to an early departure date. You declined this offer and continued your holiday for the whole week despite continuing to request a full refund. I am sorry that you found the BBQ unclean. Again, as stated in my welcome email, the cleaning of this is not something we do as the BBQ is an added extra which I thought guests may appreciate. Having taken on board your feedback I have now removed the BBQ completely to avoid this issue so guests will no longer have this potential problem in future. Your comment regarding the photographs - they do represent the cottage well and are accurate. The only photos that are out of date are of the bathroom which has had an upgrade since the original photos were taken. Regarding the size of the cottage - the description and images of the property provided make it clear of the size. It is an old 2 bedroomed cosy stone cottage in the village centre. It is not advertised as a spacious property. The garden space is a bonus sun trap after a long day out walking. It is disappointing to hear that this may not have been up to your expectations. The cottage itself was refurbished in March 2018 with brand new beds, TVs, sofas, furniture, kitchen crockery and utensils, fridge, garden furniture and the new bath, basin and wall panels were installed just before lockdown at the end of 2019. It has had major work to the roof over the second lockdown. I am particularly disappointed with your comments regarding the cottage being very tired so I will look into this to see where I can improve in this area. We do not allow dogs upstairs as you comment. This is to be courteous to all future guests, especially those who may have allergies. I am extremely proud of the comments that I receive from non-dog guests about its cleanliness and lack of dog smell. I'm sure that you understand that if I allowed dogs upstairs that this may cause issues. As a dog owner myself I know that some breeds have oily coats which carpets do not enjoy at all and dog hair can be tricky to get rid of depending on how much they moult. This policy is something that will not be changed for those reasons above. Thank you again for your feedback and I apologise if the issues you raised contributed to a less enjoyable holiday. It is disappointing that you may not fully appreciate the difficulties that small self employed businesses like myself have endured following a very difficult year with limited income. I will, however, take your comments on board and look at the property to see where any improvements can be made for future guests. Thanks, Sally Property Owner

  • "We have just spent Christmas in this beautiful cottage centrally located in Tideswell, 15-20min walk from Tideswell Dale, 10-15 min spectacular drive into Castleton, another 10-15 minutes drive to bakewell, definitely the most central base I have stay in and made getting around easy."

    The village was wonderful at Christmas, we were given very useful information by the local people who were very inclusive and happy to chat, on Christmas Eve Father Christmas toured the village and the church bells rang out his arrival at 4pm, there was also local brass band to make it feel even more special. The cottage... I cannot convey how much we enjoyed our Christmas here. We stayed with a dog and it has a garden (not all in the village do) and sally (the owner) made both humans and dog feel welcome with a welcome pack and the personal decor and feel of the cottage was very homely and modern, and there was excellent communication. However, if you do not have a dog do not let this dissuade you, dogs stay downstairs and off furniture and I would never have guessed that any dogs had stayed previously, it was pristine. Things I wish I had known; the attention to detail is excellent and consequently the cottage is so well equipped, you only need to take yourself, some clothes and personal toiletries (although there was even shampoo, conditioner and shower gel) no need to take a car load of food (we left with as much as we took) there is a decent sized co-op across the road open long hours everyday except Christmas Day and Easter, there’s a large reasonably priced outdoor clothes shop on the A road to bakewell, and some really good little outdoors shops in Castleton if you forget anything, the Tideswell Dale is a short walk away, and there are a lot of walks that can be combined to make it suitable for everyone - there are a lot of walking books at the cottage even one for pub and another’s for dog (without stiles, handy as my lab x dobie is a hefty 45kg), pretty much everywhere is dog friendly - so a trip to a larger towns such as bakewell is not as much of a problem as anticipated, can go in most shops with you as you browse. The cottage was immaculate and the personal touches such as the huge selection of games and books really make our stay so comfortable, we didn’t want to leave! Thank you for a very special Christmas, and the cake was delicious!

    The cottage is cosy and comfortable with nice furnishings. The bed was very comfortable though be aware if you sleep with the window open the church bells ring every 15 mins. Sally had left some lovely treats on the table as a welcome. There was also many other extras that you may have forgotten to pack. The garden was not used due to the weather but it is layered in several tiers and won't be accessible for some people. Sally has advised will be putting in handrails which will help but it's the nature of the location.Tideswell does not have much to explore in itself although it has a huge church aptly named "the cathedral of the peaks". There is a co op nearby as well as a post office and chippys. We walked to The Anchor on Sally's recommendation and were not disappointed with the hearty meal. Very generous portions. We would recommend the cottage and Sally was quick to respond to text etc. It offers a great base to explore the beautiful peaks. The furthest we travelled was to Crich Tram museum which was 45 minutes . Well worth a visit and as well as riding as many times as you like on the restored trams and track , there are woodland walks filled with some amazing wood sculptures. It's run by volunteers and it's amazing. also if you like history Eyam is literally about 15 minutes down the road and the museum is filled with the story of the village . During the plague the village lost 250 of its 800 people. Please note there is a free car park directly behind a paying one. If you want to enjoy the peaks the cottage offers you a great base and was warm and cosy to return to on chilly evenings.
