What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In Derbyshire To Rent.

James - verified booking

"Our 15th stay at Brookside Cottage in the beautiful village of Beeley which we love. Lucky to stay here twice this year including a week back in May. We are well used to some of the cottages quirkiness but it’s starting to feel a bit unloved in places. We hope that the few comments we made in the visitor book (see below) this time get addressed as we love staying here.1. There had been a clothes aerial dryer in the garden for years, albeit a bit cronky. This visit it was rusted and broken / snapped and had been moved into the garage rendered useless. No replacement. Beautiful dry sunny weather all week and nowhere to dry our bath towels (only thing we had was a small clothes horse in the cottage which is broken also)2. In May when we stayed, the lights above the gas hob didn’t work. This visit still the same so we took the liberty of purchasing two new bulbs and replacing them ourselves. Job done! Very little expense but guests shouldn’t be expected to correct these things. Attention to detail is certainly lacking in places.3. Upstairs wet room still intermittently leaks water through the kitchen ceiling above the fridge freezer. It’s an on-going problem we’ve experienced before and the ceiling is badly stained. Obviously needs looking at!The new boiler is a massive improvement and is nice and quiet.The Devonshire Arms pub in the village is fantastic and food excellent and would highly recommend. Lots of walks from the door including to Chatsworth House (and back across Beeley Moor). We bring our bikes and enjoy the Monsal Trail, High Peak/Tissington and Manifold Way routes). Chatsworth Farm shop and café also excellent.Despite the comments we still love the cottage and hence keep coming back. Next year will be the first time we won’t be back for our usual week at beginning of May as it’s part booked already that week so we look forward to our 16th visit in 2020."

"More attention to detail is needed when cleaning, particularly in the storage area in loft bedroom and the loft bathroom. Bed linen has seen better days. Some kitchen utensils sticky and baking trays definitely seen better days. Table mats sticky and dirty. The grass needed cutting which made it unpleasant to sit in the garden. No welcome pack so beware if you are arriving late. Stairs are very steep and there is no toilet on ground floor. Steps into front door very steep although it is easier to go in the back door. Designated car parking space was apparently repaired on our last day however there is still a dip on driving into it and there are lots of pot holes. You either have to reverse in or out and along a long narrow road. You cannot see the car from the cottage. There is parking on the road however which is a safer bet.Good information packs available about surrounding areas with places to visit, walks, etc.Good base to visit this beautiful part of the country if the cleaning issues are dealt with, in a lovely little village with lots of local amenities and lovely walks."

"My family and I had a lovely time wandering around the peaks next to Ellers bank cottage. The cottage was very well equipped and we had a very nice fire in the wood burner on the last day as the weather became cooler. (we brought our own logs and kindling with us to continue the fire as there is a starter set only) We took our dog, a small Springer, with us. I made sure she was always cleaned off before she entered the living room after having been out. There were a lot of steep stairs so I would not recommend anyone to stay in this cottage if they have issues with mobility. Also in the small garden area, it is a tiny yard which is accessible to other households and there are steps leading up to a small grass area with a table. All in all, we had a few wonderful days staying at this cottage, it was quirky and just in the right place for many walks to the peaks, only a few minutes walk to the town of hayfield, pubs and local shops to buy provisions from."

"Would have liked warning about entrance to property; very narrow and bumpy track. Disappointed with cleanliness of property; dirty floors (dropped water in kitchen on arrival and when we cleaned it up the cloth was filthy), toilet brush holders were with filled with dirty water and downstairs plug was very grotty.On a positive note, we had a lovely week there with 4 adults and 2 dogs: easy walk into Wirksworth - with a nice pub (Hope & Anchor), superb chip shop, lovely butchers, coffee shops and supermarket/petrol station - so amenities handy. We were in just right spot to explore canal boat trip (Birdswood), Carsington Water (reservoir), Crich Tram Village, Ecclestone Steam train (based in Wirksworth - walking distance from cottage) - all of these were lovely and dog-friendly. Also popped to Bakewell - quaint place.The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped. I would recommend it to people for a peaceful, beautiful place to stay."

Ian - verified booking

"We enjoyed our time in Dewsnap Spring - however, at our age we did find the sofa rather low and my wife had difficulty getting up from it! That said the property was well appointed and kitted out. When we first used the washing machine the machine would not spin and dry the clothes. This was because the water drain was blocked with what looked like tissue paper pulp and bits of plastic, which we were able to clean out from the front access point. Regrettably, we also found that the top part of the dishwasher was not working and the crockery was not cleaned. This was due to the internal water feed pipe from the from the bottom rotor point had been knocked and was disconnected from its mounting. Once found this was easy to sort out as it just needed to be pushed home. In both these instances once the minor problems had been sorted out the appliances worked fine."
