We had a lovely holiday visiting many local places of interest. The cottage was rural but well situated in an out of the way spot. Our dog enjoyed the local alport heritage site for his daily walks.
Ideal rural retreat

We really liked this cottage. It had all the amenities you would want in a holiday cottage, with great views towards Derby - lovely twinkling lights at night. Pity about the fog though - we only saw the views occasionally through breaks in the rain and fog! Lovely and cosy inside, and dog friendly too - perfect for us.

A fabulous cosy cottage! On arrival Christmas Eve in the dark I was wondering what I was doing in the middle of nowhere escaping family and friends. However the cottage was gently lit within, the heating was on and a touch of Christmas in cute little decorations welcomed me. This little place put a smile on my face, it was a real home from home and forced me to properly relax, I will return.

The only thing we feel could be bettered about this let is the instructions for finding the cottage as it is so far out of Shottle that we had to stop several times to ask our way.
Apart from the above the cottage was out of this world. It is newly refurbished and excellently done. The Kichen area left nothing to be desired it was perfect. There is all the equipment you could possibly need.
The Sitting area is nice and comfortable with the T.V and D.V.D. and the owners keep it nice and warm.and spotlessly clean.
The bedroom is huge with en.suite bathroom and toilet all very modern.The bed is very unusual being round but is lovely and wide and very comfy.I loved this room because you could look out over the valley towards Wales.( I forgot to mention you are so high up it's like living in the clouds.)
The view at night with all the lights for miles around is wonderfull and during the day if it is clear you can see so many ranges of hills I think you must be able to see Wales. Fantstic Cottage and a lovely peaceful holiday.
The surrounding area is very good for walking and is beautiful countryside.
Thank you very much.
a fantastic place

In the middle of no-where, fantastic views from the front and the back of rolling hills and forests with wildlife in abundance. Yet, it was only a 5 min drive from Wirksworth and 15 mins from Matlock, a great destination to explore the Peak District.
Sykes were good and professional however tthere directs are rubbish but on the plus side if you got a sat-nav it'll take yuo straight to the doorstep. The owner was lovely, left us alone to get on with our holiday but was always around if we needed her and such a BIG friendly dog to welcome you back ever evening!!! Her directions were much better. Thank you for a lovely holiday!!!
The Barn is beautifly converted if a little quirky. A fully equiped galley kitchen, I cooked a roast dinner with it! Lounge is spacious with a flat screen TV/DVD combo and has underfloor heating underneath black slate tiles, Georgeous!!! A round yes you read right! A round kingsize double bed with a bathroom upstairs.
