“Not very suitable for elderly people.”
Reviewed June 4, 2019 for a stay in April 2019

A review in 2010 states the small sink in the bathroom (not hot & cold taps) was leaking, STILL leaking in 2019.!!! Not very good, needs sorting out. We found many faults needing attention. Wouldn't recommend . We booked through Sykes Cottages, but won't be using them again.

“Simply lovely”
Reviewed December 25, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

Stayed here over Christmas and it was perfect. We were warmly welcomed and the studio is everything we hoped for. Cosy, warm, well-equipped. We found mince pies to enjoy when we arrived. Would definitely come here again (the visitors book is full of people that have been here multiple times and positive comments). Thank you!

“Excellent base for the peaks.”
Reviewed May 9, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We have just returned home after a lovely week in this area. The shavings is perfect for a couple and dog. Comfortable accommodation with all amenities we needed. Clean and tidy cottage with own parking, greeted by a pack of cookies and fresh milk. There is plenty of heating so this can be used all year. From the visitors book there appears people on their 7 and 8th visit's. Can't recommend highly enough. So thank you for a lovely stay. We may well returned if you have a vacancy. Would recommend you use the A515 access on your first visit and avoid the A6 side until you find your way around.

“Very convenient base in the Peak”
Reviewed August 20, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Terrific value for money. Excellent kitchen, and pretty much everything else you could need, with parking right outside. There is also a small seating area on the patio. The location is very convenient for both outdoor activities and for visiting Buxton: you feel you are in the middle of the countryside, but the town is only a couple of miles away. I would just be aware that you have another bedroom on top of you in the upstairs accommodation, and if young children are staying there you are likely to be woken early in the morning. A bonus is the shared laundry: very useful to have a washing machine available.
