  • "Excellent accommodation for the weekend."

    Lovely area with some really nice walks right from the door step. Lovely views of the land around. Nice to have somewhere to relax in comfort after a days walking.

    Many thanks for your kind words. Best wishes. Property Owner

  • "A fantastic house with lots of attention to detail."

    Loved the huge hall and staircase to the large landing. Plenty of books to browse through. A bonus to have the 3 toilets, 2 showers and the lovely bath. Everything spotless. Excellent location next door but one to a Londis. Chippy and Indian restaurant very good. Fully enclosed garden appreciated for our lively dog!

  • "Very, very pleased with everything about the cottage, only one exception was the front parking, I feel there is enough space with only a small-ish amount of effort to extend the parking to fit two modern large cars which at present would be extremely difficult if not impossible to fit in without being on the main road."

    But as our guests were unfortunately unable to share the cottage with us we only had the one car, so our stay was really great. Thank you so much.

  • "Good standard of accommodation."

    Great position for exploring the beautiful Peak District. Property kitchen well stocked for utensils, cutlery, cookware etc and a sizeable dining room meant we could all eat together.

  • "A lovely house and area."

    We had a couple of issues, one being no wi- fi, but owner was very prompt in helping resolve both problems. There are lots of beautiful walks in chinley village and surrounding area. A lovely holiday for our extended family, which lower lane house was easily big enough to accommodate. Would love to return one day.

  • "This is great for families and dogs."

    Having an enclosed garden was fantastic. The bedrooms are all a good size, as are all the rooms. We couldn't use the Internet at the property, but it wasn't a problem. We all had a great time, thank you.

  • "We had a lovely family break (with 2 dogs too) at this spacious, comfortable and well located cottage."

    The lounge furniture could do with an update and there were a few things missing in the kitchen that we’d usually take for granted (salt and pepper etc) but these are minor points. We’d definitely come back!

  • "A spacious, well equiped holiday cottage with excellent shower and bathroom facilities."

    As a family, outdoor drying would have been appreciated. Not always necessary or convenient to use a washer/dryer especially in good weather. Parking space for two large cars is tight.

    Wifi wouldn't connect to anything but it wasn't really an issue for us. Comfortable beds and sofa, clean house and very spacious for 6. Well appointed for our needs and the perfect place to come back to after the days we spent exploring.

  • "The cottage was very comfortable and felt like ‘home from home’."

    Would highly recommend it. The garden is lovely. We had fish and chips from the local chippy and we had a takeaway from the Bombay Cafe. All was very good and plentiful. We liked Chinley, great location for getting about the area. Would come here again!

  • "Lower Lane House was amazing!"

    A truly delightful cottage, lovely period features, a really impressive entrance hall and large sized rooms. The garden was brilliant and our two dogs had a whale of a time chasing each other around there! Would definitely recommend!

  • "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.

  • "Huge problems with the Wi Fi very poor at times even with something as simple as Face Book."

    Upstairs shower did not drain took us about five minutes to remove hair and clean drain, a simple task that needs to be done regularly. Felt the house needed a deep clean eg; Underneath cushions , cooker etc. Overall a lovely welcoming and very warm house, lovely to see Christmas tree as we walked in. Family loved it and we all had a great week. Would revisit, but family need good wifi.

    Lovely, bright and spacious house with an enclosed garden which was important for us with having a dog. Two fab pubs within 10-mins walk, Indian takeaway (fab), chippy and shop 1-min. Weather was the only thing that was disappointing - rained most of the time but plenty of boardgames, books etc to keep us all occupied. Would love to return soon.

  • "The house is very spacious and well set up for guests."

    We enjoyed our stay very much. The garden is secure for the family dog and there is a great dog walk from the house (half hour) which was lovely to walk the family's 2 dogs to take the edge off their excitement before the days activities began. There is loads of information at the house about local walks, caves, places of interest to visit and shopping and eating prospects. We found lots of challenging walks to suit our party's needs (and the hot weather) Our only gripes about the house were a couple of window locks which didn't work and the rather skimpy size of the 2 parking spaces...luckily our drivers enjoyed the challenge! The village and locality are so lovely we will certainly be back here before long.

  • "Bright and spacious."

    Kitchen is lovely with loads of tools and equipment. Could have done with more washing liquid as we didn't use the dish washer and more toilet roll. Beautiful garden to relax in. And a quiet room to escape from noisy kids. There were 3 families in this cottage but there was plenty of space. We went to visit the caves which were only 15minutes away. Would definitely recommend.

    Also the dining area needs updating. Very disappointing to note lack of toilet rolls and lack of bayonet bulbs for the bedside lamps, these being basic items. Also both the general waste and the recycling bins were full, and do not have been emptied for a considerable time. Small points which would not stop us returning.

About the location


Chapel-en-le-Frith 3 miles; New Mills 6 miles; Buxton 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!
