a week in peak district
We have chosen a cottage in peak district . The situation is perfect to walk into peak district , visit Manchester, hire a cycle or other interesting activities. We were lucky and had a very sunny week there. The landscape is really beautiful .
But there is also several points of disappointment .
In the first bedroom no possibilities to have sufficient ventilation.
Cleaning before arrival was not perfect : for instance Barbecue was really dirty , windows had not been cleaned.
the beds are old and the springs encapsulated inside make you feeling like being on a trampoline.
The days were very hot and we had to open the windows but the tub is running days and nights and the owner did not allow us to shut it off , so it was really not easy to fall asleep ! and when you are outside the noise is still remaining in your ears. Hopefully we had a second holiday week in Wales to recover !
Fantastic location , spacious and warm.
The location is superb for walking, cycling and local attractions. It is spacious and comfortable . Plenty of room for at least 8 . The hot tub provided lots of fun and relaxation.
Nice house in a beautiful environment
Nice rebuilt old barn. Very characteristic with plenty of space for our family of five. Nice hot tub as well, though a bit noisy even when not used.
It was awkward that the owner wasn't present during our stay (without notice) and we received the key from someone else who we accidentally met around the building. But the rest of our stay was very nice indeed.
We had to replace lots of bulbs and had no one to discuss our concerns with. No WiFi as advertised.
It’s REALLY difficult to find. And nobody to speak to when we couldn’t locate property. Things advertised were incorrect. No garden or park area. Washing machine and dish washer didn’t work. Grill was like cooking bacon over a candle. Approximately seven light bulbs gone we replaced. Nobody to contact about this. The handbook directs you to a very expensive local spa (but three minutes further on is a Tesco!) owners are in arrangement for commission with the spa. Tiny seating area is north facing so no sun after 3pm. Roaming cattle and lots of dangerous equipment around (it’s not safe to allow your children to roam here). They tell you to keep the noise down but fail to tell you to prepare for the noise of tractors and deliveries and distressed animals all hours. Our six year old laid on the bed and three wooden slats broke (we replaced as we were worried) but in hindsight it should have been sturdy enough for a child to lay on. Three of us suffered with ear ache upon our return which we sssimr was the hygiene of the hot tub. We left s cushion on a chair on the garden (after completely blitzing the place tidying up) and they deducted £80 of our deposit for this. There was a dog there that kept coming into our barn and someone told us it was the owners and they were away in Jamaica.
I am so sorry that you were not satisfied, however, we had a handy man on site 10am-3pm Monday to Friday and the hot tub was checked regularly . The cottage was left in a state towels were left very dirty. Old meat left in the oven and also our cleaner was advised the dog was not a problem and we even received a photo of the children playing with her.
Please be assured that only twice have we had to recover costs and this is only done when absolutely necessary. Photographs were taken if needed.
So much potential but worth the stay
So looking forward to this stay and it has much to offer, entrance to farm could do with better signage but once found it is easy to remember.
First impression upon arrival is mmmm not sure but once you enter it improves and you will see the potential!!!!
First thing that I found was the lack of attention to cleaning, front room had dust patches around tv stand and dog smell on sofa.
Banaster is loose so be aware.
Main dinning area
could do with place mats but is a good area to sit around and enjoy a few beers or glasses of wine. Door to kitchen would not fit frame.
Kitchen/ wet room
Wet room had strong smell from floor drain which could be due to cleaners pouring dirty water down drain but a very good shower.
Cooker was spotless
Hot water was endless
Few kitchen utensils missing that would make cooking easier
Fridge had to be replaced due to fault and this was done immediately and a big thanks for being so prompt.
had loads of cobwebs which could easily reached, pull out bed had used sheet still on it ( very of putting for wife ) shower small but lovely to use.
Watch out for low headroom
All other bedrooms were fine but yet again lack of attention to cleaning was the let down, front bedroom window does not shut properly which means you can not block out noise from main house when they held a party.
Upstairs bathroom fine
Outside hot tub is a great way to relax and was well used by all of us, water felt slimy once or twice and could find no chemicals in filter system and back rests could do with a jet wash to clean the grim of them.
Can’t beat it though
Please don’t let these comments put you off it really is a great place to stay and nothing beats waking up on a working farm.
Granddaughter loved the animals and little walks down the lane, the owner Anita is such a lovely lady and nothing is too much trouble, very approachable which is a pleasure who took the time to stop and chat when around.
To make this a great place to stay the cleaners need to up there game and spend a little more time on the basics.
Would stay again if cleaners improved and hope Anita can get the minor issues sorted
Lovely Rural Retreat Close to the City
Had a great stay here for a long weekend visiting our daughter who is a first year Uni student studying in Sheffield. Very comfortable, well equipped and clean throughout. A few minutes drive in one direction brings you in to the city whilst going in the opposite direction gets you on to the Moors just as quickly. Many thanks!

The hot tub is available during the stay, if however it needs to be refilled and reheated from cold there will be a charge of £25 (deducted from the deposit). Any damage to the property inside or out will also be deducted.
