The Old Robin Hood is ideally placed to explore the Peak District from.. It is spacious, comfortable, clean with good facilities and the owners could not have been more helpful.

Lounge/dining area much bigger than seem to appear in photos.. Downstairs areas ie bedrooms, hall/games area, kitchen get too hot, whereas lounge is much cooler. But it was an exceptionally chilly, wet and windy week. Our family of 6 adults, 4 children and 1 dog had a great time, in a really spacious, clean house. Kitchen very well kitted out, we lacked nothing!

The facilities were amazing.. Lots of games for adults and children on rainy days and the jacuzzi was a great hit with all the family. Very clean with all modern amenities and plenty of bathrooms. Owner very helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend

From start to finish it was the perfect weekend away.. The cottage is absolutely stunning and very comfortable. The under floor heating and the open fire made it so cosy. All 11 of us really enjoyed every minute. The owners did a brilliant job trimming the cottage up for Christmas at our request. Thankyou- we shall definitely be back!!

The cottage was lovely.. Would have been useful to know the 150 deposit that's to be paid to owner at the start of booking so I could factor that in when collecting payments xx

Great place for a big family.. The owners catered for two babies with cots and high chairs and made sure we had everything we needed. Lovely sociable sitting room and dinning area. Hot tub was really good after long walks. Great location with good places to visit and eat at nearby.

Me and 7 other of my friends have just got back from a fantastic weekend at the old Robin Hood cottage in Holmesfield 22/03/19 till 24/3/19 ,what can’t I say about this place it is a most beautiful cottage with every amentity and facility you can possibly need the owner Aoife is the loveliest lady and can not do enough for you while you are there but she is never intrusive, the property is in beautiful surroundings , down the road is two great pubs one that does food and they have lovely friendly staff who make you feel very welcome, the cottage is very close to any interesting places , I could not recommend this highly enough , we are booking for next year without a doubt

We booked the Old Robin Hood to cater for a 40th birthday party.. Aoife met us on arrival and made sure we were comfortable throughout our stay (without ever being intrusive). She made sure we had enough water in the hot tub (and that it was hot enough), that we were warm enough and had enough logs for the fire. The kitchen was large, well equipped and organised and made a perfect social point for our party. The main living area had very comfortable sofas and chairs, and a fantastic wood burning fire. The bedrooms were clean, and beds comfortable. The hot tub was fantastic, and a perfect place to relax. It's easy to get to, there are many local pubs, the local shops and supermarket are nearby, and its the perfect place to stay if you intend to head out into the Peak District (with Stannage Edge and Higger Tor just a stones throw away). In summary, I would recommend this place to anyone with a decent sized group of people, and would love to stay there again someday.

The cottage was exceptional and beyond our expectations.. There was ample room for the 11 of us that stayed. The hot tub was a brilliant facility. The only aspects of feedback I would give are that, in winter there is probably a need for a door mat into the living room for people coming in from the hot tub. We made the floor quite slippy coming in and out. Also a few people in the group commented on the hardness of the pillows on the beds. But aside from this it was an amazing experience and Aoife was on hand to make sure everything was perfect

Great accommodation for a large group, would recommend!

The house was perfect for two families getting away to the Peak District.. Good location to many attractions and villages. The layout and number of bedrooms/bathrooms made it a perfect stay for two individual families, meaning we had our own space and bathroom options. The hot tub and games room was a great addition, entertaining the kids and adults when Home. The owner was always quick to help with anything we needed and ensured the hot tub was always filled up. Thank you, we had a fantstic stay. The Old Robin Hood was beautiful.

The online photos do not do it justice, The Old Robin Hood is a stunning property in a perfect location with amazing views.. Great walks from the doorstep and lovely local pubs a 15 minute walk away. Ideal for large groups, plenty of space and the hot tub is an added bonus!

Old Robin Hood was an absolutely perfect setting for our weekend, it was such a beautiful home and very comfortable and very clean.. Aoife was so helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay and very easy to communicate with.

We thought the house was really lovely, and the Pool table, all the indoor and outdoor games and hot tub were very much enjoyed by the family.. My only very minor grumble was that the instuctions for the very modern cooker were hidden amongst the very comprehensive pile of walks books for the area, so it took a long time to find them, thus delaying the cooking of the lasagna for our evening meal!. I will send the owner an e-mail of thanks, and mention this very minor point. Also, the bedding and towels which were provided were sparkling clean, and a pleasure to use. All in all, a wonderful place to stay.

The Old Robin Hood was lovely.. We were a large group and it was perfect for us. The kitchen was very well equipped and the lounge /dining room comfortable. The hot tub was a great bonus. The owner was very helpful and responsive. Some lovely walks from the cottage and easy to get to stanage edge and other places of interest. Tesco deliver here. All in all a lovely break.

Cold. Cold.. Cold. On arrival the information in the house told us the main room is cold due to high ceiling and not to adjust heating as it takes a couple of days to get up to temperature. Sadly we were sitting round in coats and gloves all week. Log fire very hard to light as wouldn't draw (does chimney need sweeping?). If we had known in advance we could have brought portable heaters/extra jumpers/hats etc from home. Sister in law with broken collar bone had to go home early as cold made it ache so much. I appreciate the weather was particularly cold during our stay, but as the information on arrival made it clear the owners were aware of the issues, it wouldn't have been difficult for them to warn us to come equipped.

The large kitchen is well stocked and the downstairs is very warm with the underfloor heating.. The lounge and dining area was great, there was enough sofas and chairs for everyone to be seated at once around the fire. We especially liked that the dining table was in the lounge so that we could all be together in one room whether sat munching on cheese and crackers enjoying the fabulous view out of the large window, or sat eating chestnuts in front of the log fire. The only downside is that there isn't an outside tap to keep topping up the hot tub !!!!

The cottage had all the equipment needed for 13 of us. It was also close to a number of pubs which we went in on the Saturday. The decor was lovely and only the best furnishing were used. The owner had left a file with all contact numbers in, takeaway menus and suggested activities in the local area. She also visited on the first night to ensure that everything was okay with the property and to check we had settled in.
