Great little cottage
Found this cottage through Sykes rentals, booked for a week in late September. We were immediately impressed with the Old Blacksmiths. It's had a nice modern refurbishment and is warm and cosy. We felt was equipped with everything we needed (apart from perhaps some kitchen tongs!). The owner greeted us and left cakes, milk and tea bags on arrival which was a nice touch. As the descriptions says, both bedrooms have their own shower room en suite which we found very useful. The cottage is in a lovely quiet setting and looks out over fields. Made a good base for exploring the peaks and local sights such as Heights of Abraham, Chatsworth and Hardwick Hall.

Lovely, comfortable cottage that was well equipped. Beautiful location and good for exploring the Peak District. We would recommend it.
Dr Ralph

The photos do not do this property justice, it is excellent accommodation. It was spacious downstairs, and highly furnished with a well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms are both en-suite with large showers. It is in a quiet area on the edge of the glorious Derbyshire dales.
Mr Stacey

In a great location, quiet and relaxing. The cottage was lovely and roomy. Would not hesitate to go back.
Mrs Yardley

The cottage was cosy and warm. It was beautifully presented and one of the best we have stayed in. The surroundings were lovely and the owner was very friendly and helpful.
