I was lucky to have beautiful weather when I went to Spout cottage, so able to enjoy walks from the front door over fields enjoying wonderful views.
The cottage was lovely, well furnished, and plenty of kitchen equipment to feel at home.
The bedrooms are very comfortable.
I can't fault the cottage and felt very much at home there.

This cottage is in a beautiful location down a twisting narrow country lane. So quiet and peaceful with lovely views of countryside and llamas! The cottage has been renovated to a high standard and is very comfortable with three bedrooms ingeniously designed. The weather was warm enough for our son to take advantage of the pool while we enjoyed relaxing in the garden. There is plenty to see and do in the surrounding area but, if you do not feel like always negotiating the narrow one lane road, you can always just relax in comfort.

Holidaying with 3 generations plus a dog it's often hard to find somewhere that suits all but Spout Cottage did just that.It had all the comforts of home for my elderly parents plus walks long and short for the more active amongst us with fabulous views whenever we stepped outside. It had the feeling of complete remoteness but with the nearby villages and Bakewell providing all necessities. We even had to do an emergency car repair and the garage in Youlgrave was able to fit us in at a day's notice!

Excellent cottage clean and tidy, the location was fantastic as well. Only one problem we asked for enclosed garden when we booked, but found no fences at all.

It was absolutely fantastic! For someone who wants somewhere in the middle of nowhere with amazing views and footpath on the doorstep it is perfect. Katya, my german shepherd dog, loved being free to roam around with only lamas to worry her!

No problems booking through Sykes.
We had the most amazing time. The location was superb, scenery stunning and tranquility bliss. The cottage was clean throughout. Everything was thought of, a proper home from home accomodation. The owner and Mrs Patterson were very welcoming. A real rural retreat and one that we'd highly recommend. Thankyou for a wonderful time.

I have already given my feedback on the holiday in Spout cottage. It was very nice and we all had a lovely time.
The best weekend away we've ever had!

we arrived on the Friday night to a lovely clean
warm cottage tucked away on a quiet hillside. Some
of our group had the dinner on in a well furnished
kitchen, with enough plates for the 8 of us. the
lounge was plenty big enough for all of us & the 3
rooms were all of a good size.
The next morning we woke to look across the dale at
the stunning views. we walked several times over
the weekend & couldn't believe what a find the
By the time Monday morning came, none of us were
disappointed to be snowed in! Soon enough a local
farmer arrived to tow us up the hill so we could be
on our way. Everyone had a really good time & we
all want to go back!
Best part: the location
Worts part: the local pub doesnt serve food!?

We arrived at the cottage and received a warm welcome from the housekeeper who gave us lots of useful information.
We loved the layout of the cottage, the eco heating system, the lovely spacious ensuite bedroom and the large farmhouse kitchen.
The location was beautiful and the views spectacular. The village of Youlgrave a mile away had a good selection of pubs but the butchers was closed for the week we were there and the shops a bit limited.
We loved the surrounding walks, the wildlife,the views and the cottage.
