  • "Lovely house."

    Plenty of room for us all to spend time together. Rooms bigger than expected. Beautiful location and village.

    Thank you so much for such positive feedback. We really do appreciate it. You left the house immaculately and we are grateful for that too. Kind regards. Property Owner

  • "Just had a lovely weekend here for my Dads 89th birthday."

    The house is lovely, there were 8 of us plus a dog and we had plenty of room. Everything we needed and more was there. Lovely welcome pack. We enjoyed the open fire and it was very handy having 3 loos! The views from the bedrooms are amazing. I’d definitely recommend this as a place to stay in the area.

    Thank you for such lovely comments. You would be most welcome in the future. Property Owner

  • "What a lovely warm, homely cottage this place is feeling spacious - even for 6 of us and a Golden Retriever - in a beautiful and convenient location with an enclosed rear garden but with a few niggles."

    Let's start in the kitchen; it is only fair to mention that this property is missing some standard kitchen basics such as an ice cream scoop, oven gloves, baking trays of any description (yet loads of pots and pans!), or storage for personal food. Bearing in mind this is a property that sleeps 8 there is virtually nowhere to store any food you might have brought with you or bought whilst out and about. The fridge freezer is great but the lights on the Rangemaster didn’t work which was inconvenient. Water waste from kitchen sink plastic drain kept coming away from the outer wall leaving all the grey waste to simply pour onto the concrete path outside the kitchen. The door to the outside from the kitchen is so stiff it is almost impossible to open and close. Fortunately, there are wide, easy-opening patio doors from the lounge to the rear garden area. The lounge is odd. There isn’t enough seating for everyone if all 8 berths are used and then it’s completely disjointed so families cannot all sit easily together. Some seating is set around the fire whilst others are set around the TV. Notices are quite adamant that you aren’t allowed to re-arrange the furniture due to damaging the beautiful floor (understandable) but why then can’t the decent sized TV be moved to the same wall side as the fire and have all seating around both the fire and TV allowing the whole group to watch a film together or cosy-up sharing stories around the fire; a simple change which would have made our stay significantly better. The sofas were different than in the pictures. They have been upgraded and are very comfy. The second small lounge was really useful and very cosy. A big plus. The dining room also worked well for us as a family of 6. It doubled up as a games room for us to play card and board games. Might be a tight squeeze for 8. The bathrooms are pleasant spaces although the toilet seats in 2 of the 3 toilets aren’t designed for men to stand up to wee in as the seat physically can’t stay up without being held in place. The showers are good - if used on their own. Unfortunately, you can’t use them at the same time, water pressure and heat vanishes when showering upstairs if someone starts using the downstairs shower. A towel hook close to the showers themselves would be a nice touch rather than having to leave towels on the floor. The towels are lovely and soft but not really large enough to walk around the property with - especially when there is no curtain, covering, or frosting over the glass front door. The bedrooms are spacious with plenty of storage although one of the twin beds is extremely soft which was a shame as most of them were lovely, firm, and comfy. The landing and stairs have a lovely comfy carpet and whilst the stairs look very grand and luxurious there’s not much room to get past to the kitchen, shower-room, and dining room areas. There are also parking issues. We came in two vehicles, a large Ford Tourneo which we appreciate is large and wouldn’t fit on the drive but our other vehicle is only a Citroen C5 Aircross which I would consider a typical sized family car. I could only just fit it on the drive by getting right up close to the front wall. Again for a large family property, to utilise the 8 berths, better parking is required and could be fairly easily accommodated by a bit of landscaping at the front. I appreciate this sounds rather negative but really we wanted to highlight a few frustrations we had as we had an overall really lovely time here. There is so much to enjoy and admire about the property, it was a relaxing stay and it will be on our shortlist of places to return as overall, it worked well for us.

    I am glad that you all enjoyed your stay and hope that you can return. The house was our former family home and many of our guests have been returning throughout the last 10 years that it has been used as a holiday home. Thank you for pointing out the couple of issues which required maintenance. These were dealt with as soon as you left. We have replaced a couple of things that you mentioned. A couple of issues though do need clarification. For example, the very large kitchen has a lot of cupboard space, a pull out larder unit and a dresser for storage. There are lots of baking trays and indeed kitchen gloves. Eight bath towels are provided as per Sykes recommendations which are more than ample. They are not meant though to be used to walk around the house near the front door! Guest are encouraged to use the toilets in a seated position for hygiene reasons. Two cars can use the drive though additional parking is also present nearby. Thank you very much for the booking and feedback and hope that you can return to us soon. Kind regards. Property Owner

  • "We were a family of 8 with 2 small dogs and the layout of the house was good for us in that everyone had space to do whatever they wanted."

    Because of the weather we spent a lot of time together but it wasn’t a problem. Going off previous reviews we were prepared not to have enough crockery/cutlery/seats and found this not to be the case. A Christmas dinner was produced for all 8 people and the welcome of the large Christmas tree was very much appreciated.

  • "Lovely warm and welcoming cottage and well positioned for our family get together close to good walks and great pubs ( book at busy times) Just a few very minor points is that there were 8 of us and couldn’t all sit comfortably in the lounge where we usually spend a lot of our time after walks and meals out No welcome pack or starter pack for the fire Washing machine very complicated to use but didn’t work as went on for hours ( mentioned in a previous review) Back door extremely difficult to open and after day one we used the patio door as was afraid of breaking it!"

    Back garden was a huge bonus for our two dogs and being secure was much appreciated but the bushes and gutters on the patio need attention as you get wet going to the dustbins Would definitely use again for our family but suggest a new lounge and dining room redesign to seat 8 comfortably The drive was used comfortably for 2 small cars but we parked the others down the road in the car park with no problems Thanks for our stay and we hope to be back soon x

  • "We choose Chinley due to the location and size of property."

    Family close by so it was perfect. We agreed with previous posters that said there wasn’t enough plates & bowls for a house that slept 8 people. The dresser had some random items in it that would be of little use to many. Didn’t use the washing machine so no idea if that worked or not. Also agree that the drive is only suitable for one car, not an issue as easily parked on the road. The double bedroom nearest the upstairs bathroom smelt very strongly of damp which we think was possibly down to the shower leaking next door. It was very noticeable if the door had been shut for any length of time. Overall with this being used as a large holiday let some areas showed signs of wear and tear. The carpets had a few stains on mainly on the landing. The sofas were well used. It’s very difficult to find holiday homes close to family that have a secure garden. This house had a good secure garden. We had a great takeaway from the Indian restaurant and the coffee/wine bar is also very good. We would definitely stay here again and would give it 5 stars if some of the issues were addressed.

Plenty of room and 3 toilets great. Few minor issues. Step onto gravel a little tricky with two cars parked. Had to buy peeler and grater as not provided. Could do with more cups, glasses and plates as constantly washing up to use again. Washing machine is faulty as it doesn’t move through the cycle and stays on for hours. Overall great stay - walks and scenery fantastic.

  • "Overall this is a great sized property for the recommended number of people and we would be willing to stay again, more so if the issues are fixed."

    Good points include the upstairs bathroom being a great size with a gorgeous bath and shower, location is great close to nice pubs and amazing walks, the garden is a great size and well enclosed for dogs, the kitchen is well equipped for cooking and has a good sized fridge/freezer and oven. The sofas and beds are a little tired but really comfy and more than fine for the purpose. There are some negatives though and points that need fixing. The washing machine wasn't working, it didn't appear to have a hot water supply and hence we were left with cold wet dirty washing. The clothes airer provided is broken with plastic parts snapped, we were unsure as to why this was left in the property, luckily we had brought our own. A few of the bulbs in the lamps were not working, these just need to be checked and replaced. No fuel was provided for the fire despite this being advertised on the listing and there was some newspaper filled with ashes at the side uncleaned. Frustratingly a lot of the doors won't close properly as the latches are either not there at all or don't work. This can make it difficult stopping dogs/ children leaving certain rooms. There is no starter pack provided so you have to crawl on the floor get to the wifi password and figure things out like laundry and bins for yourself. There was not enough hand soap and toilet rolls in the property so we had to buy more of our own. Only 3 hand towels were provided despite there being 7 of us in the house. The seal around the downstairs shower needs replacing as now the water spills out if the shower head is pointed towards the shower screen. The kitchen needs much better cleaning in the future, there was an open packet of something on top of the fridge, many of the insides of the cupboards were messy and greasy, and the floor was black when you wiped it with a damp piece of kitchen paper.

  • "The house itself is a very lovely property and the photos on the website do not do it justice, the rooms are much larger than we expected, however there are errors in the description of the property on Sykes website."

    The property does lack attention to detail. i.e. we had to replace the batteries in every clock in the house because none of them were working, we also replaced the batteries in the DVD remote because they had been left in so long that they had corroded and it was not working. The TV in the snug was not receiving any tv programs and we had to reset the tv to get it to work. It was very disappointing that the WiFi has a block on gaming websites. Garden was lacking attention (lawn too long, plants not pruned etc) and lowered the feeling of the quality of the property. Parking is a bit tight if you have 2 large cars, and is impossible due to parking restrictions in the village, if you have 3 or more cars, you also need to be very careful about where you do park as large articulated lorries regularly come through the village. Toilet cleaner should be provided in each bathroom. Only 1 hand towel provided in the cloakroom for the whole week (in a property that sleeps 8 people) which is totally unsatisfactory due to the current COVID situation. Furniture and decor would benefit from an update. Washing machine is temperamental and does not progress from the wash cycle to rinse/spin cycle, this needs to be done manually. Property would benefit from having a washing line of some sort as the only means of drying washing, when we visited, was the washer dryer. The discovery of food left in a kitchen cupboard and clothing from previous hirers in a drawer in the one of bedrooms, suggests that the property does not get cleaned to the standard that you would expect. The handbook for the property was seriously out of date and lacking lots of information, all appliance manuals should be in the handbook not hidden away in a kitchen drawer. The local Indian restaurant serves excellent food and are very friendly. We had an enjoyable stay despite all of the above, and would probably choose the property again if it was brought up to a better standard.

About the location


Chapel-en-le-Frith 3 miles; Hayfield 3.3 miles; New Mills 6 miles; Buxton 8 miles; Edale 8.8 miles; Bakewell 17 miles.

Chinley is a lovely little village nestled in a wonderful rural setting, on the western edge of the Peak District National Park. Popular with walkers, who are attracted by Chinley’s close proximity to Kinder Scout, visitors are well-catered for with the village’s selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants. Serious walkers will wish to head east from the village, across the green foothills to the russet expanse of Kinder’s moorland plateau for a starting step onto the Pennine Way or Snake Pass. Families and those looking for gentler roaming can venture west along the beautiful Sett Valley Trail towards New Mills with the Torrs Riverside Park, a peaceful place for recreation and relaxation. Within just a short drive are the delightful High Peak villages of Chapel-en-le-Frith, boasting a cobbled marketplace and historic old stocks, and Whaley Bridge, with its canal basin and a good range of local amenities. Just a little further is Castleton, with its famous caverns and Norman Castle, as well as the popular spa town of Buxton, with its fabulous Opera House and Victorian architecture and park. The wonderful market towns of Ashbourne and Bakewell are also a must visit! Discover Derbyshire’s fine history with a visit to Lyme Park, Chatsworth House or Haddon Hall. Chinley truly is a wonderful base for discovering the wonders of Derbyshire and the Peak District!
