After a friendly welcome from the onsite owner we had a great week at The Rindle with family and friends. A very well appointed house with a great social space for us all to gather to cook, eat, play games, relax, watch TV and films. Plenty of parking space and room sit out or kick a ball around. Excellent location within walking distance of the local pub and lake. Lots of great walks around, especially The Roaches - spectacular! Highly recommended.

This house was amazing and made for a great weekend away.. It was clean and in a lovely location. The host popped over to check we were ok on arrival and was super helpful. We would definitely recommend this to all groups of people looking for a large house like this one. We will definitely look to come back should we do something similar in future. Thank you The Rindle!

We had an absolutely lovely week stay here.. The Rindle was absolutely beautiful, very clean and very cozy. There was also plenty for us to do nearby (Alton towers, Peak Wildlife Park)

The Rindle was perfect for our get-together.. The accommodation is excellent - clean, very well laid out and lovely and warm. And there are some really thoughtful and nice touches, such as the wine and chocolates. Thank you.
December 2019
I’d highly recommend The Rindle if you’re looking for a place to stay with a big group/family. The accommodation is very well appointed, with plenty of bathrooms and a huge, sociable kitchen/dining/lounge. The family who own The Rindle have included some simple, but thoughtful touches, that make it a really easy and lovely place to stay. It’s also in a great location, being a short walk to The Lazy Trout Pub and Tittesworth Reservoir, with a cafe and playground.
August 2019
Following a stay in Nov 2016 we vowed to return and return we did !. Once again a very warm welcome and this time we also booked the Honeystone as well for our large family party. As ever the accommodation was spotless and a bottle of wine awaited our arrival . Isaac came to check all was well after we had settled in. A most enjoyable week was shared with extended family members in very comfortable and spotlessly clean , fully equipped ,accommodation. Once again we intend to return . Highly recommended .

Booked the Rindle for my husband's 50th birthday. I could not be more pleased with the accommodation. It was spotless & perfect for our needs. Age range of 5yrs-50yrs and each and everyone enjoyed it, even the teenagers! Suzanne the owner was welcoming, friendly and helpful - key collection etc was easy & nothing was too much trouble. Lovely bottle of fizz & a box of chocolates greeted us on our arrival. The photos on the agency website do not do the Rindle justice, it is wonderful. Fully kitted out with anything you need in the kitchen, games & dvds in the living room. We will 100% book this place for another large celebration. Totally exceeded expectations, don't hesitate to book.

We were a family of 14 staying at The Rindle cottage which we all found amazingly beautiful, clean and very comfortable.. It’s surrounded with green lush fields with sheep and cattle grazing, which was perfect for our family get away. Owner of the cottage was extremely helpful and friendly. We all had a great time and an amazing holiday, with lots of wonderful memories made. I will be booking again.

It met all our needs.. The owner was very welcoming and helpful. Accommodation was comfortable and warm. Ideally situated within easy walking distance of tittesworth reservoir and a good pub. Many footpaths led from the Accommodation to the moors. Loved it.

Lovely weekend at The Rindle we were blessed with good weather so were able to enjoy the surrounding area including the reservoir and facilities at Tittesworth..
Miss Mcnab

The Rindle is a fantastic house.. We were a party of 13 with 4 teenagers and a 6yr old. There is so much room in the house. The kitchen facilities were fab. House was spotless. Beds were comfy. The owner is a lovely lady who left fresh flowers, wine and chocolates for our arrival. There's plenty to do in the local area. Children had great fun on two days at the local water sports place. We had two days at Alton Towers which was a 30 min drive. The Peak Wildlife Park was about 20 mins drive. Local shops are 4 miles. Great pub within 5 min walking distance. Would definitely go back here!
Mr Lockie

Overall the accommodation was wonderful.. However i would recommend that some of the bed matresses and dining room chairs and some of the lounge seetees could do with replacing as they are past there best and are a little uncomfortable. Wonderful location.
Ms Brough

We were so lucky with the weather as well.. We celebrated my mother’s 90 th birthday and had a wonderful time. Thankyou.

Great house for a large party. We had a big party for my mum there. Great facilities, large kitchen lounge and all the showers good ! Close to things to do for kids, walkers and climbers in the Peak District. Very good owner who was really helpful for all the stay.
Mrs Moss
August 2017
We needed a cottage that could fit 12 people.. We didn't have that much choice but the Rindle turned out to be great. We were not cramped and there were plenty of facilities for everyone. We couldn't have hoped for more.
Mrs Johnson

Great house for a large party.. The hostess was really informative and helpful. Great location for access to walks climbs pubs and a playground. Great rooms and all the showers were powerful.

The location has lovely views, is quiet and set well back from a country lane but not far from Leek, Buxton, Stoke and Macclesfield for groceries and museums. The Silk Museum in Macclesfield is a must. The Peak District scenery is beautiful, we went walking from the house or drove short distances first. Try renting bikes on the Monsal Trail from Hassop station near Bakewell. Rock climbers will love the nearby Roaches. There was space for our toddler grandchildren to play outside and away from the road. Our group was 8 adults and two toddlers and there was plenty of seating at the very long table and in the lounge, and the 4 bathrooms meant no waiting for showers. I highly recommend this beautiful barn conversion.
November 2016
A most suitable accommodation for any size of party . Ours comprised of 12 people and everything was perfect . The accommodation is extremely well equipped and most comfortable with all the nice touches . There is plentiful heat and ample hot water even when all the showers etc are in use at the same time. On arrival there was a bottle of wine, flowers and chocolates waiting which was a nice welcome. Suzanne ,the owner came and said "hi" and she was most friendly. Nearby there is plenty to do and the local pub ,the lazy trout , is well worth the 5 minute stroll to. We will return here for sure.

Eleven of our family from around the world stayed In this gorgeous barn. We were very lucky with the weather and had a fab week here. The barn is so roomy and well equipped and I liked the fact that the large kitchen flowed into the lounge so that everyone was together. It was very clean and well equipped.The dining table was huge and sat everybody comfortably with room to spare. There was plenty of sofas in the lounge area. There are two large bedrooms on the ground floor and also a wet room. Please be aware there are steps around the barn which if you are wheelchair bound but I managed fine with crutches.We were greeted on arrival and the chocolates and wine were very much appreciated. There is a pub a few minutes walk away and a reservoir with a lovely play park and places to barbecue and picnic. Water sports were on offer while we were there. There are so many places to visit and the scenery is awesome. There are supermarkets ,shops etc a short drive away. We all enjoyed our stay but the highlight for the boys was the friendly rooster that came to visit each evening to be fed and petted lol. We would definitely recommend this barn and the owners were so helpful. Thanks for having us it was a wonderful holiday.
Mr Rattray
July 2016
We particularly liked the large open plan kitchen/dining/lounge and the very large dining table. It was a spacious property for the 13 of us. The rural surroundings and views of the Roaches were lovely. Being able to walk to Tittesworth Reservoir and park was a great attraction.

Just spent 4 days with a group of girls celebrating a friends 60th birthday. absolutely lovely,clean and comfortable accommodation. In a lovely location-quiet (yet close to civilisation) Understanding and hospitiable family who own it Would recommend it to anyone

Mrs Laity

A lovely holiday barn, perfect for us with walks on the doorstep and the The Peak District a short car trip away. The large kitchen come dining room and lounge all in one worked extremely well for the eleven of us. The owner was friendly and gave us some local information on the area, e.g. walks, shops and pubs. We all would be happy to return.

The accommodation was lovely, very comfortable and clean, with some luxury touches. There were fluffy white towels and underfloor heating, little touches that make all the difference. The owner was very friendly and helpful and ensured our stay was seamless. It was also a great location, with a good pub, excellent play park and reservoir within walking distance.
Ms Pearson
September 2014
What a lovely place! We were made very welcome by our hosts who offered us all the information we needed on the property itself and in the wider community (for walks / pubs etc) The building itself was fantastic, roomy and cosy at the same time, standard of decoration was excellent and we had a great stay. Would very much recommend and would book again if returning to the area

A great location and cottage.
Mrs Hammond
February 2014
The Rindle was the perfect place for 12 girlfriends to get together for a fun but relaxing weekend away. The layout of the house was perfect with the main area, kitchen, dining room and lounge all being open plan. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed, large oven and fridge freezer, plenty of crockery, cutlery etc. The bedrooms were also great with plenty of bathrooms between us all. The overall décor and cleanliness was superb and it looked exactly as the pictures showed. The area is lovely and we did the short walk around the reservoir which is nearby.
Mrs Bainbrigge
January 2014
We had a lovely warm welcome with flowers, wine, chocolates and the log fire roaring away. The owner visited us and explained about all we required to know, nothing was to much trouble. The barn is furnished beautifully. Three generations of family and friends celebrated my 65th birthday, it was perfect for all.
Miss Dorney
December 2013
The owners were warm, friendly and welcoming. The layout is perfect to allow everyone to be in the same place at the same time, which was especially great if you usually spend a lot of your time in the kitchen; but also generally allowed everyone to freely mingle and catch up with one another! Perfect for a group holiday. Beautiful scenery on your doorstep and a playground minutes away for children, young and old! Thoroughly enjoyable.
Mrs Walsh

Beautiful building in a beautiful spot. The kitchen is very well stocked and the property has a great communal room for everyone to socialise. Great heating system, very warm throughout and plenty of hot water whenever required. The park at the nearby reservoir was excellent for the children. We would definitely recommend and return, thanks for a great holiday!
September 2013
We had a family get together to celebrate my wife's birthday. Most of us did not know the area, but it is lovely with many interesting walks. The accommodation suited us very well and there was ample of space outside for grandchildren to play. The local pubs we sampled were very good. An excellent weekend. We had perfect weather, and my only doubt was over how we would have coped with poor weather.
Mr Aspland

The accommodation suited our needs very well.
Mrs Donovan
August 2013
The property is a barn conversion. There was ample room for sitting and relaxing in the large lounge/dining kitchen. The rooms were spacious and well furnished. The setting is beautiful, Meerbrook is a tiny village close to Tittesworth reservoir which has an excellent playground for children of all ages. The Lazy Trout is the village pub within walking distance of Alderlee Farm where the Rindle is situated. We enjoyed an excellent meal there and were well looked after. The week went very quickly, there is so much to see and do. We recommend the Monsal Trail for cycling or walking.
Mrs Bell
May 2013
Very friendly welcome, the cottage was lovely, nothing was too much trouble, even the dog and chickens gave us a welcome. Lots to do at the reservoir and excellent pub in Meerbrook within walking distance.

We rented The Rindle along with the other 2 barns at the same location for my 40th birthday weekend and everyone was thrilled with them. Very high quality accomodation in a fantastic location. The open plan living area was perfect for a big get-together, and all three barns were really well equipped. Can't recommend these barns highly enough - all my friends were asking for the details with a view to returning wth family or friends. The owner was lovely and there's the added bonus of a great pub just a few minutes walk away (The Lazy Trout).
Mrs Payne
January 2013
The welcome from the owners was very warm. The chocolates, wine and flowers were lovely touches. The entire property was spotless and very well equipped. It was really nice to go to a large property that catered for large groups and was very well thought out. Cooking facilities were excellent - massive cooking pots and the oven/cooker heated up quickly and was easy to cook on for large groups. It was also pleasing to have so many bathrooms with excellent water pressure - whether a stand alone shower or over the bath. And best of all, the open plan living space was superb. Fantastically large dining table and plenty of space in the lounge area for everyone to sit down and relax.
Mr Timms
December 2012
The owners were lovely and did everything to make our stay perfect.The location was stunning and the barn conversion very clean and high specification. No extras to pay for. This place is great for a family reunion. The pub down the road is very welcoming.

May 2012
We arrived to a very warm welcome by the owners, together with a box of chocolates and a bottle of wine. It was the perfect barn for our family of ten adults and a 2 year old. Comfortable seating for all and the open plan aspect meant we were all together - whether it was watching tv, cooking, playing games or just snoozing and there was plenty of space for our 'little one' to play. The location was lovely too with the pub just down the road. We would certainly recommend The Rindle and we may even be back again next year. Thank You!

The area is great for walking and outdoor activities and only a 5 minutes walk to Tittesworth reservoir. The Roaches are also close enough to walk to, about 30 minutes. The Lazy Trout pub in the village does great food and ales. The lounge and kitchen area of The Rindle was perfect for a sociable time with our family. The owners were very helpful and welcoming. Nice and warm with plenty of hot water for everyone. A lovely time was had by everyone, thank you!
Mr Hooper

Perfect for a large family holiday. Good walks and the surrounding area was excellent. Local pub was an easy walk with a nice atmosphere and very good food. For a large property it takes a lot of beating.
Miss Rawlings
September 2011
The property was modern but also had 'features' that made the house cosy and homely. The size was great as well as the kitchen, dining and living area all being connected. The location was lovely and the host was really friendly. The house was very clean and organised. I'm sure it would also be very cosy in the winter time with the underfloor heating and real stove fire. Everyone that went had a very good time and we would go back again!
Mrs Allinson
August 2011
The cottage was lovely, spacious, well furnished, warm and clean. It was a perfect base to explore. The grounds were perfect for our children to have some freedom. We all loved it and would definitely recommend.
August 2011
Nice welcoming touches of a bottle of wine and chocalates. Nice rooms clean and to a high standard. Fantastic pub in the village which is only a couple of mins walk. Lots of space and if any problems the owners are on site to help. It would have been nice if the grass in front of the house had of been cut so that the kids could have had a game of cricket or football.
Mr Wilson

The Rindle is set in a nice, quiet rural area with friendly proprietors. Good pub serving food within walking distance and it was central for touring.

Mrs Jones

We have been taking an annual cottage holiday with a large group of friends for over 10 years now and this is one of the best cottages we have stayed in. We loved the open plan set up, there was lots of space, it's very well equipped and it was great to have a nice pub within 5 minutes walk. We have used Sykes for the last few years now and have never been disappointed. Thanks for a great weekend.
November 2010
One of the best things we found was that the kitchen and lounge areas were all one, this meant those that were preparing food were not on their own. Good location for walkers with fine views of the Rindle
Ms Arrowsmith
October 2010
Fabulous house - just what we were looking for. Although there were 13 of us we never felt overcrowded. There was enough seating for us all (living area and dining table). The house was exactly as advertised and very comfortable. The owner was very friendly and made us welcome. All the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Would definitely go again.
Ms Brain

The size of the property met our needs perfectly. It was beautifully decorated and maintained and we had an excellent few days there. The location is fantastic allowing us to participate in outdoor activities like walking, cycling, horse riding and paint balling. Lovely local pub within walking distance as well. The owners were friendly and helpful. Could not fault this property and it was exceptional value for money.
Miss Birch

The setting was amazing, and the snow made it even better!!! The owners were very helpful and easily available for any problems. The overall finish and decor was much higher than in previous properties we've rented in only slightly lower price categories.
December 2009
13 of us stayed in this fantastic barn converstion! Fantastic location very close to Tittesworth Dam for a walk/run. The bedrooms were all roomy and fab and plenty of bathrooms! We also had a lovely walk up to the Roaches and lucky for us the weather was glorious in October! Mrs Reaney was very friendly and showed us round - bottles of wine and the chocolates were a nice welcome touch. Loung/living area was lovely and we made use of the real fire and logs supplied. Only suggestion I would make is to have a signpost on entrance. I would definately recommend this and hopefully will be back one day! Keep up the good work.
Mrs Mottram
November 2009
It was an excellent place, we all really enjoyed it. Really immaculate but rustic cottage, nice and spacious. Nicely decorated. The surrounding area was beautiful. The pub near by was really cosy. The owner was lovely, so helpful and very kind! A great weekend had by all. Thanks!
Mr Snedker

A lovely newly renovated property. The size of the open plan kitchen dining living room made it easy to accommodate everyone when it came to meal times. The number of bathrooms made it easy for everyone to get up and out in the morning.
Mr Crisp

The cottage was in an excellent location for walking and sightseeing. It is in a very small village and off the main road and is therefore quiet and peaceful. The owners were extremely welcoming.

Mrs James

The location, the accommodation and the friendliness of the owners. The house was very well proportioned, clean and tidy. We had sufficient space to give all 3 families their own space when needed whilst also allowing us all to get together as a large family. The rooms were all good sizes and beautifully decorated. There was a TV with free view, DVD books and a radio. The kitchen was fully equipt. Overall a very pleasant and welcoming home. The surrounding area was good for long walks.
Mrs Hennessey

The owners were wonderful and very helpful. The nearby reservoir is superb for a day out, take your barbecue along.
