  • "We had a lovely stay in Amber House."

    It was spotlessly clean, and so comfortable. The cottage had everything we needed, is situated perfectly in a beautiful setting. It gave us the perfect base for a lovely, relaxing holiday, thank you for having us.

  • "Amazing village and so beautiful in the surrounding area, the cottage is in a great location but is sadly lacking in any kind of sound proofing so every time there is any kind of activity out side you hear everything, especially when there is building work going on up the street that started at 8 am on the dot every day, so no chance of any kind of a lie in,."

I appreciate a lot of people do not cook elaborately on holiday but we are quite foodie so a well stocked kitchen is a bonus, did take extra pans and my stick blender and hand mixer with me, so things were fine but a few small additions would really enhance the experience. All of that said I would 100% reccomend this cottage

    The loft room was particularly spacious and the cottage was clean. It did lack a few basics that would have improved things and the beds were extremely uncomfortable, very springy mattress.

    We were really pleased to find Amber House. It was comfy and cosy and perfectly located. We loved exploring Tideswell and really appreciated being so close to places such as Bakewell, Chatsworth, Matlock, Castleton, Buxton, etc. where we enjoyed fun days out. I've been really impressed with Sykes Cottages who were quick to respond to my request for a high chair and cot and were full of good humour when we spoke on the phone. It's been a great experience all round and I won't hesitate to recommend both Sykes and Amber House to our friends. Thank you!
