The cottage is small but lovely. Very steep, narrow steps to the second floor...but worth the climb to reach the spacious bedroom and bathroom. The location is idealic and beautiful. The local pub is friendly and serves delicious food. We had an incredible stay...as did our dogs! We hope to return again in the near future!!

We and our dogs were made very welcome, it was nice to feel that the dogs were welcome visitors, not just tolerated.
The owners were on site to meet us and gave us a short but comprehensive guide around the cottage and the gardens and grounds, which we were given free access to.
Burrs Cottage proved to be the perfect holiday stay for us, handy for all the walking areas of the Peak District, the views from the cottage are exceptional, especially so from the bedroom window, waking to that was an absolute joy.
The cottage was very well equipped and lacked for nothing except perhaps a few cushions on the chairs.
There are some very good pubs and restaurants nearby, Fish and Chips and a late opening store in Tideswell(5 mins in car).
One note of caution, if you can't manage steep stairs this is not for you, we thought it contributed to the charm of the place, and we will definitely be visiting again
Perfect little cottage

We had a lovely week at Burrs Cottage. In an ideal location, close to all the Peaks has to offer but also secluded enough for perfect peace. The down stairs is very small (but contains everything you need) but was quite surprised how bright and roomy the bedroom seemed. Very comfortable bed.The only slight concern to people maybe the steepnes of the steps, they were quite difficult to get up and down.
The owners who live next door were extremely friendly and most helpful but did not intrude at all during our week.
Not much in the village of Gt Hucklow itself but neighbouring villages of Foolow and Eyam are just perfect.
Had a wonderful week, especially the dogs. Will definitely visit again.

Very good little (and I mean little!) cottage with helpful owners based next door. Seating not overly comfortable for people who suffer with bad backs but satisfactory. Bed was lovely though! Beautiful views from front of cottage across some lovely countryside. Have to be very careful of steep staircase but once you get the knack of coming down backwards all is ok. Would certainly recommend for a fit couple of people. Our dog certainly enjoyed the locale.

My husband and i wanted to get away to celebrate our 33rd wedding anniversary and we couldn't have found anywhere more perfect! we knew from the description the cottege was going to be small but we were both taken back by how cute it is and how the owners had managed to fit it out so perfectly. The views are amazing, the local walks breathtaking and the local village very friendly.

Perfect little hideaway for 2 people. Very cosy and comfortable, local pub excellent and several others within easy driving distance. Nicely central for walking
A real gem

We booked this cottage pretty much at the last minute for a three-night break. We received a warm welcome, which included a dish of chocolates and milk in the fridge, along with some home-made jam and marmalade. Although very tiny and with a perilously steep wooden staircase, the cottage was very well-eqipped and thoughtfully laid out. Despite the cold nights and a fall of snow, the wood-burning stove kept us beautifully warm. There was a positive library of guides and maps, which told us all we needed to know about the area, and a real bonus was being able to walk directly from the front door without having to use the car. The view from the conservatory and from the bedroom is extensive and lovely. We felt that this cottage was one of the most charming and delightful places we have stayed in, and great care had been taken to provide for our comfort and relaxation.

A delightful cottage in an idyllic location.
The accommodation was bijou, but there was everything we needed to make our stay really comfortable. The views from the cottage across the valley were fantastic.
An ideal location for taking the dogs.
Central for touring places of local interest -
Castleton, Bakewell, Buxton, all within a short drive.
Hope to return again soon.
did not stay the full week

Lovely owners but sadly they went on holls that week !! Very kindly left lovely welcome pack and could not have been nicer.
As I went for a week on my own i did not realise that I would be that isolated so more info about the remoteness would have been nice.I felt rather scared alone at night there even though we actually live in the ocuntry ourselves but in a village.
Lovely for holiday with dog, nice outlook but only appreciated in summer as sunroom in winter not much use !
Unfortunately I found that it felt a bit spartan and could have been a bit more cosy/omfortable, perhaps some more generosity of bedlinen ie bigger pillows rather than thin flat ones and something like a nice warm blanket and some thicker wondow dressing or something to feel a bit more cosy as it was winter and chilly. Prob nice in the wamr summer months but not great in winter, also had damp probs and smelt of cat wee so I spent ages washing through the mats in the itchen to get rid of the smell and then realised that it most likely was damp.
Steps to bedroom were lethal but this was mentioned.
It was not very luxurious and could easily achieve this without spending much mney - winter curtains and extra soft furnishings and something to keep the damp away.
