"The things I would have wanted to know about Moorecroft before going :Upstairs are 3 bedrooms, 1 has an ensuite with no shower, 1 is next door to a bathroom and the 3rd is across the hall past the lounge so is a walk to the bathroom – we had four people staying in all 3 bedrooms and all 4 of us shared the 1 bathroom. All bedrooms are in the eaves, with a 6ft2” husband this really didn’t work well.Downstairs is very open plan – too open plan to allow for effective use of all the space with a large group who at times want some separation. The 2 kids rooms and 1 bathroom are behind the pool and through the dining room, for us with teenagers this was a problem as with no clear separation from kitchen to bedrooms we were having to be very quiet each morning and only use the upstairs lounge meaning up and down for refreshments to the kitchen. The cinema room is open plan to the downstairs lounge and you can only use either the cinema TV or the lounge TV – we had hoped for 3 distinctive TV areas but there are only 2. There is another bathroom behind the cinema room, we didn’t use this at all as it was in such a difficult place.Overall, it’s a very confused layout that would only work for a very specific group of people. We were 6 in total, I cannot imaging fitting 12 into the cottage. The garden was very small.Parking for 3 cars doesn’t really exist, the driveway is on the steepest of slopes, we didn’t even attempt to bring a car down to the bottom so parked 1 of our 2 cars on the road.Worst of all for the children was WiFi awful.On the positives the cottage is clean and in the most part well equipped, the pool was great. It’s in a great location – we were there over half term so very expensive and overall we wouldn’t spend that amount of money on staying again."

"We had a great time at the cottage,the swimming pool was a fantastic hit with everyone,very clean,plenty of room,near to Buxton shops and a brilliant park at the bottom of the hill,would definitely go again but not for a few years!! the reason being that we had two babies in our group (age one and two) the cottage does not cater for babies at all !!.....no cots ( not even travel cots - we had to buy two!!!) No highchairs,no stair gates! (We brought three with us but the opening downstairs leading upstairs was far too wide for any of the three gates that we brought!) It was a nightmare all week keeping the little ones from trying to go upstairs and also a nightmare carrying all this extra equipment with us from home!!! Luckily we enquired with English Country Cottages before we left as we saw another review complaining about this or we would have arrived on the first night with nowhere for the babies to sleep!!!!!!We have stayed at getting on for a hundred cottages over the years bigger and smaller and everyone has caterered for babies (if needed) so this disappointed us a lot ( hense the overall score)If you accept babies you should cater for them!!! Especially as you know ages of quests as it has them on the booking form............."

"We had a good holiday at Hall Barn but would not go again because of the very squeaky floor boards. The whole of the upstairs floor creaks as one walks on it which disturbs the whole of the rest of the house especially as all of the doors have spaces around them and some rooms even have large openings above the doors. This also meant all lights had to be out at night. In order for everyone to be happy we all had to go to bed at the same time and try not to have to move around at all until the next morning.We loved the location with good walks and fine views. We enjoyed the pool table. There was plenty of space for parking. The rubbish disposal was very efficient with very clear instructions and facilities for recycling. The cooking facilities were fine, although the hobs were a little slow, and there was plenty of crockery and cooking dishes and pans. Most rooms had good storage space but a couple had rather inconvenient or small wardrobes.The place is very spacious and a joy to be in with plenty of tables and chairs, both upright ones and relaxing ones. It is light and airy and there are plenty of games to play and videos to watch."

"This is a splendid property for a large group and we had a lovely weekend celebrating a family 'milestone' birthday. The property was excellently presented and the kitchen well equipped, appropriately so for a property sleeping 12 people. Located within a quiet residential development, the centre of Bakewell is only a few minutes walk away, across a public park - the only busy road has a conveniently sited pedestrian crossing, so it's a safe route for children. The owners clearly have an eye for detail and the welcome pack was a very pleasant surprise. We have rented a large self catering property annually for many years in different parts of the country and Wyedale really is the best we've come across. Just one thing to mention: whilst every bedroom is ensuite, there's no separate lavatory, so if you arrive after a long journey needing 'the facilities' in a hurry, just head for the nearest bedroom - it's off the kitchen diner! We have no hesitation in highly recommending Wyedale and look forward to a longer visit in future."

"We had a lovely weekend at Lumsdale House. We were 6 adults and 3 children. It was really well equipped with just about everything you could possibly need - the owners had thought of everything! The rooms were huge and there was so much space downstairs. We ate in both nights making full use of the well equipped kitchen and great big dining room. The showers were fantastic (but didn't work so well when someone else was having a shower in another bathroom at the same time!). The only thing that would have improved our weekend was a bit more sunshine and some work on the circular garden immediately outside the house! The garden was beautiful but was a bit let down by the circular garden being full of weeds and overgrown - it would have been stunning with a bit of work. We would definitely go back again if the opportunity arose."
