    We rented the house just before Christmas as a base to catch up with Family and friends. The cottage is in a good location and met our needs for staying overnight and having guests join us during the days we were there. We arrived late and did not hand over the cottage formally (which is great for us) but a book with some information about the house and locale would be something I expect in a Sykes cottage. Positives: the garden was lovely, House was warm and generally clean and tidy. Plenty of plates and cutlery. Lots of hot water. Very happy to have some Christmas decorations in the house. The children loved their room in the attic. Negatives: the house needs a deep clean, there are many cobwebs and dusty corners. The cupboards feel sticky and the freezer in the kitchen need replacing it repairing. Take a look at the pots and pans as most I used needed cleaning first. Watch outs: the exit to the main road needs a confident driver, traffic is fast and visibility is not ideal. The three loft rooms are adjoining and not ideal space for adults. However the doors are also heavy for small children, our youngest is 4, so not also good to leave him in a closed room with no exit possibilities. Please update the pictures of the lounge and kitchen.

About the location


Matlock Bath 1 mile; Bakewell 8 miles.

The popular Peak District town of Matlock, together with its neighbour, Matlock Bath, has been attracting visitors to the area since the spa was developed in the late 17th century. Set in the beautiful wooded gorge of the River Derwent, the Matlocks offer a range of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as a host of attractions including Gulliver’s Kingdom and the Peak District Mining Museum. Magnificent views down the gorge can be enjoyed from the cable car which takes visitors up to the Heights of Abraham – a great place for all the family with its showcaves, nature trail, water gardens and Owl Maze. South of the town is the start of the High Peak Cycle Trail, whilst a short drive away is the National Tramway Museum at Crich. To the north are the market town of Bakewell and Chatsworth House and Park - not to be missed!
