Very disapointed. There is honestly nothing cottage like about this property apart from the exterior and a fire place. The photos advertised definitely do not reflect the true look of this "cottage" with the decoration bland Shower pressure was shocking and temperature kept fluctuating between freezing cold and boiling hot. The positioning of the shower head was also oddly in the corner of the shower rather then central wich ment you would need to angle the shower head. It is obviously a self cater holiday but i didnt realise id need to bring my own pots and pans. There are 2 frying pans one very small with another really inefficient and catering for us all was a nightmare. We made this mistake the first morning and went out for breakfast and dinner for the rest of our duration. The hot tub was a big attraction for us wich is one of the reasons we booked this property but what a disapointment. Not only was it cold on arrival it was dirty and smelled musty and limited us to using it. There was also a lack of lighting in the garden area and with it being autumn it gets dark very early wich made things impossible to see and with it being very open with no gates anyone can walk round and invade your privacey. Overall this was our first trip to derbyshire and after finding some really nice restaraunts & pubs, exploring the peak district and visiting bakewell it would be lovely to return but it was a mistake booking this property especially now looking online just out of curiosity at other local places that looked more ideal with plenty of excellent reviews.

We arrived for a weekend break with friends. The cottage was quaint and had all necessary amenities. It was generally clean however the hot tub was a little dirty. The owner left a very thorough file with local places to visit, some rules for the house and instructions etc. (One rule being no nose outside after 10pm) On the Saturday evening we heard a neighbour let off some fireworks. We had planned to travel to a site the next evening to do the same however, as we heard them locally we decided at 9.15pm to let off a maximum of 3 minutes of fireworks. The neighbours became verbally abusive out of their windows. At which point we went back in to continue our evening. We had a knock on the door from a neighbour claiming that we had caused distress to her. We apologised respectfully and reassured that we would keep all noise to a minimum. We tried to call the owner to apologise for any concern as the woman had claimed she was going to contact the owner. The owner did not answer nor did he call back. The next morning at approx 8.30am, we recieved a voicemail from Sykes Cottages telling us that we had to vacate the premises immediately. Apparently multiple complaints had been made throughout our stay (although we only heard 're the fireworks) and still now we do not know the reason to the so called complaints. We requested a partial refund due to us not breaking any rules but having to leave early at their request. This was declined. As we were leaving we were approached by an elderly neighbour verbally abusing us for the noise. Complaining that she gets nothing but grief from the visitors at this property and the owner and that she was seeking legal advice. We were not warned of the restrictions of noise (barr after 10pm). Had we of known we would have stayed elsewhere as 4 couples. We cannot believe the lack of support from Sykes Cottages. They were unhelpful and rude. They claimed to the landlord that they had told us of the noise issues, however we had not. We will be escalating our complaint of this. We would recommend that this property is not suitable to rent. Unless you do not mind recieving a load of abuse from neighbours. We faced abuse due to previous visitors.
