  • "Beautiful cottage in great location."

    We stayed for 3 nights & would have loved to stay longer. Extremely clean, hot tub was fantastic, beds really comfortable. Simon Faulkner was available at the end of the phone for any queries. The only suggestion I have that would improve our stay would be to convert the downstairs cupboard into a bathroom. One bathroom between 4 girls was not ideal

  • "On arrival the main bedroom was ‘full’ of flies, I contacted the owner who immediately came round and said they’d had the problem before, he put a smoke bomb in the room to kill them, after about an hour they were all dead but all over the bed and floor, not ideal, we used another bedroom, thankfully we didn’t need them all!"

    ! The lounge kitchen area lovely, hot tub and garden nice and not overlooked. Just very disappointing with the flies, don’t expect it when you pay for a break away.

    ! The rooms were clean and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to make basic meals. Perfect for us as we were three adults and one child. The view from the cottage was lovely and offered sufficient privacy. Would recommend.

  • "A lovely week in a very comfortable cottage."

    Hot tub is amazing. A slow cooker would be a good addition in the kitchen.The oven door seal isn't too great and heat escapes so food took much longer to cook than anticipated. Generally though it was a lovely property and has most equipment you will need. I think next time I book I shall take along my Ninja!!

    Has countryside feel, overlooking fields of sheep. Hot tub is great to relax in. It's covered so protects you from the rain. Only little niggle was upstairs loft bed room was a quite cold, but tolerable. Rest of house comfy and cosy. Would definitely come back.

  • "Had a lovely stay."

    The house is spacious and well-equipped. Highlights included the great hot-tub, comfortable beds and private, dog-friendly garden. Minor issue was quickly sorted by the owner. The kitchen floor tiles need attention and having one bathroom for six people is a bit limiting, but overall it’s a nice house in a good location and would certainly recommend. Enjoyed the food and ambience of The Black Boy Inn, a mile down the road.

    It would've been nice to have some throws but I understand that is difficult due to Covid-19. Good job we took robes for the hot tub so we just put them on. Also there was no lighter to light the fire, we have bought one and left it in the drawer. Location was good .

    It would be better with a sofa bed. The dishwasher didn't work. Even after I had read the review before I would of thought it would have been fixed. It needs an extra toilet. Seen a couple of rats in the garden. Told not to use hot tub after 5PM as it needed to be cleaned. They never came to empty and clean it. But apart from all these little miss haps it was a nice holiday

  • "The cottage was lovely as an escape and the view from the back was excellent, hot tub was very inviting in a very wet and inclement climate."

    The open fire was welcome and much needed although only enough to start the 1st night which meant the heating didn't really accommodate the weather conditions, if enough was left and not needed it would have shown good faith! The towels that were available were really not good enough to use very rough so either don't put in or make sure they are a little bit softer. There were no instructions to use any equipment...oven, hot tub, so on which would be useful. In the lovely large antic room there's only 2 of the 4 roof windows with blinds which meant a early awakening for light-sleepers! Only 1 toilet could be a problem with more people. These are meant as helpful suggestions not complaints.

  • "The house is lovely and the hot tub most definitely made the stay."

    I didn’t provide the highest ratings for this property though because I felt that it really lacked some of the personal touches that I have come to expect from booking through Sykes in the past. I am used to seeing a welcome pack; some bread, milk, crisps etc. and there was nothing like this on arrival. I also really enjoy reading former customer reviews in a guest book because you can get some really good ideas about where to go out or eat, and this property doesn’t have one. These aren’t essential and wouldn’t stop me from booking again but are nice to see and do provide that personal touch I enjoy. The owner was carrying out maintenance when we arrived so had to wait over an hour after our check in time and the dishwasher was broken and did not get fixed for the duration of the stay despite being told it had been. There are rats at the bottom of the garden which is unsurprising given that it backs on to a field in the countryside but is worth preparing people for because it caused considerable anxiety for one of our party who has a phobia and was unwilling to stay in the garden past sundown. The top bedroom does not have blinds on 2 windows so I was awake at dawn each morning and some of the decor is looking a little tired. There is only one bathroom which was ok for a group of 4 but I imagine wouldn’t be enough if 6 people stayed. There is room on the ground floor to put an extra loo where the washing machine is. That said it is a nice clean property in the perfect location to explore the Peak District. The hot tub was an amazing way to relax at night. This review may seem quite negative, it really is a nice property and I would return, however I feel it is fair feedback for my experience.

  • "We enjoyed our stay."

    It was comfortable and as expected. Hot tub was the reason we booked this place and we completely enjoyed it. Few things missing were mirrors. Not enough mirrors in bedrooms. The bar area near hot tub was very unclean with lots of dirt and spider webs and could not be used at all. Only two toilet rolls were provided for 6 people for 5 days stay.

  • "This is a lovely cottage and has all the home comforts."

  • "There was confusion in relation to the check out time which was later confirmed as not our fault, at 10am a guy decided to come in whilst we were still in the property and started to clean up - no respect for privacy or allowing us time to collect our things etc, this was made worse as he decided to start in a room where the females of our party had stayed and when asked to give us some time to pack up and leave he just continued."

    This kind of put a sour taste to what had been an excellent weekend away and would have reservations in booking to stay here again in the future.

    Just feel the cottage could do with a couple of basic improvements. Towels were clean but very old and grey looking. Main oven was dirty and greasy inside and baking trays were rusty and greasy. Lovely open log fire but fire guard could have done with being attached to the wall with hooks to avoid it falling down. Lovely weekend spent here.

  • "Generally the cottage was very good."

    Place was very homely, loved the open fire at night, dog was happy there as well. Grandson stayed over one night and couldn't get him out of the hot tub, he loved it, the whole house was a little rabbit warren for him. Accommodation in general quite acceptable. However the garden and shelter over the hot tub are not like the pictures though. Garden looks tired although we did visit in April but there is no shelter on top of the frame over hot tub. I think the picture is quite old given the height of the palms in the picture. In fairness the guy who looks after the place did say they had sent in alternative pictures to Sykes without the shelter for publishing but given that was 6 months or more since, one has to question either his comment or Sykes service to its members. I have said it met expectations in the Sykes website tick box review despite my comment above because it was generally very homely and appealing and feel it unfair to mark it down for one little thing but they do need to update the pictures of the cottage. In short its a nice place, good value for money, the general area is lovely with plenty going on and we would go again.

The Matlocks offer a range of shops, pubs and restaurants as well as a whole host of other exciting attractions. 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! South of the town is the start of the High Peak Cycle Trail, whilst to the north lie the market town of Bakewell and Chatsworth House - not to be missed!
