Self-Catering Reviews

Mr Quantrell
September 2020
If you want to get away from it all, this is the place.. Peace and quiet with superb views on your doorstep. Cottage was perfect for two people, clean, comfortable and well equipped. Places like Buxton, Matlock Spa and Bakewell are all a short drive away, as well as good walking and hiking venues. Good fish & chips in Longnor.

We had a good time and the weather was kind.. Poor lighting throughout, but warm. No. hooks or shelves in bathroom. We were there for 7 nights and not once did the owners speak to us which we found quite amazing as other quests said they were friendly, they were only found the corner, at least the cat was happy to see us!

Absolutely loved our stay here, the cottage is perfect for a couple to get away from it all.. The views are fantastic from all around, with the added bonus of the decking which catches the sun all day. Great location and base for walking/exploring the Peaks. Will be returning!

Mr Coleman, August 2019

The lighting in the cottage was very poor, especially for reading and looking at maps.. There was a bath but not enough hot water to fill it to a reasonable depth. The windows didn't open very much and you couldn't leave the door open because of the cat.

As a person with some walking disability issues I found Curlew Cottage very easy to cope with.. The gravel drive could cause some problems on accessing the cottage but we were able to back our car right up to the door and the start of the wooden decking area which was nice and firm.(driving away on the gravel needs to be SLOW!) The views from the decking area were amazing and could also be seen from all the windows of this very well equipped cottage.The welcome gift of delicious local cheese and oatcake biscuits from the kind and helpful owners was much appreciated.We would highly recommend this lovely cottage in a beautiful and peaceful spot making for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

I presumed there would be WIFI already at the home but, wasn’t a big deal as the views were fantastic so it wasn’t a huge issue..

What a wonderful cottage.. Stunning views (when the mist cleared) matched by a warm welcome. There was everything that we needed. Will certainly be returning next year.

People might want to be aware that there is no WiFi and there is no mobile signal (although that may depend on your provider).. For some that may be a good thing!

This is my second visit to Curlew Cottage.. It was every bit as good as last time. The owners are friendly and welcoming and the cottage is comfortable and well equipped. The view from the cottage is wonderful and it is in a great location for exploring both Derbyshire and the Staffordshire Moorlands. I would recommend it. The only thing it doesn't have is Wi-Fi but that is made clear on the website.

Lovely stone cottage with everything you could want.. Very clean with modern bright interior. We were fortunate to have sunny weather and really enjoyed having breakfast outside watching the curlews landing nearby. Although there is no internet we could easily catch up on emails at The Manifold Inn nearby. The cottage is well situated for trips out whether walking, cycling or visiting Buxton, Chatsworth and Bakewell. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
Mrs Bonner
May 2018
Given that this property is rather isolated and there was a lack of up to date leaflets regarding things in the area, I think the availability of wifi is a must.. I did not want to keep up with emails etc. but I wanted to carry out research, check opening times, check the weather as the tv did not seem to offer a weather forecast for the area we were in. I wanted to find out more about walks in the area and the cycle trails but there was nothing in the cottage to help. We picked up a load of new leaflets and left them in the cottage which may help later occupants. The property itself was excellent apart from the lighting which was very poor and it was nearly impossible to read given the poor level of lighting. The shower ran hot and cold but that was probably due to poor water pressure as there was another cottage behind us. We loved the cheese which was left by our hosts and I would stay at Curlew Cottage again but only if wifi was available.

Mrs Bolton

Not really.. The hosts were welcoming and helpful. We have limited mobility and felt safe apart from one tumble on the gravel which we learnt to negotiate better!
Mrs Bolton, April 2017

The only reason we wouldn't re-book this property is because we would want to discover another area.. We feel we have fully covered the immediate area.

I am the owner of this cottage and just need to make any potential guests aware that we do not have wifi in the cottage and mobile phone signals can be a bit "hit and miss". I am not sure how we have wifi listed on Trip Advisor as we don't advertise internet access on the Sykes Cottages website and we would hate anyone to be disappointed. Part of our appeal is the peace and quiet of our location and the ability to be virtually non- contactable! Come and enjoy the silence and get away from the rat race.
Mr Simmons, February 2016

In a fantastic location with views you would never tire of.. Excellent knowledgeable hosts and lots to see and do all within an easy cars drive. Would definitely return.

We had a lovely few days at Curlew Cottage - wish we could have stayed for longer! We loved the location of the cottage - beautiful views, very quiet and a good base for visiting different parts of the Peak District. The cottage itself was perfect - spacious, beautifully appointed, comfortable and warm. We couldn't have asked for more and have recommended it to family and friends already!

Lovely cottage with very welcoming, generous and extremely helpful owners. Lots of walks along the wonderful valleys of the Southern Peak District nearby, combined with staying in a cosy cottage a bit higher up on the moorland. Best of both worlds.

Curlew Cottage exceeded our expectations in almost every aspect. It was extremely well equipped in the kitchen area, with even tea, coffee, milk etc supplied. Complete comfort in the lounge area and bedroom. The bathroom was also more than adequate. To add to all this the views that this cottage's location gives and its total sense of tranquility are hard to beat.Top marks to the owners!

Lovely cottage clean and comfortable, well equipped with everything you need. Warm friendly greeting from the family. Good centre for touring the Peak District. Lovely pubs serving delicious food a short drive away. Several cycle trails on disused railway lines for safe cycling. To top it all we had beautiful weather during our stay an extra bonus.
