With its secluded location amidst the gorgeous countryside, Heath Cottage offers the perfect escape for couples wanting some alone time and a break from their everyday lives.

The barn conversion comes with thermostatically controlled heaters in the living room and bedroom and a heated towel rack. The cosy, beamed living room has a TV with Freeview and opens onto a fitted kitchen, dining, and sitting areas.

Dr Who's tardis with a view.

We were happy with the unobtrusive approach of the owners on this working farm. The cottage looked impossibly tiny on the outside but seemed a lot bigger inside and offered everything we needed for a week. The views were extensive and beautiful from the cottage and farmyard and there were wonderful hill walks all round. A short walk took us into leafy Edale with its visitor centre, tiny shop, and two pubs. Unfortunately the nearest pub served up terrible food, and we didn't try the other one. Luckily there were plenty of others to choose from in the area, if you were prepared to drive a short way.

Christmas in the 'High Peaks'

When we arrived snow was very deep and we were
unable to get our car up the lane that lead to the
farm and cottage. We needn't have worried, the
owners; John and Sally where there to help us;
taking us up to the cottage in their four wheel
drive. If that wasn't enough Sally even went out of
her way and brought our food supply's from the
village some miles away. Just like 'Sykes
Cottages', Sally and John were so helpful, we were
warm and content and above al; felt entirely safe.
A huge thanks to 'Sykes' for making it possible
through their friendly Staff, and to John and Sally
for making it such a memorable Christmas.
Many Thanks. D. Read.

Lovely peaceful hidaway. A definite regular place to visit

The owners were very friendly and helpful but in no way intrusive. The cottage was very sweet, small but ideal for two. Perfect location for walking and pubs nearby for food. We love the Peak District so this was and ideal spot to explore from. The Edale Valley does get 'the weather' but on rainy days a good book and a lovely view was all that was needed.

The Wilde's

Ideal for a get-away from it all break

The cottage was one of four located around a farmyard on a sheep farm. The farm was was within walking distance of two pubs and a small shop. General shopping is in Hope about 5 miles distant.The cottage is in a scenic setting with easy access to walking routes and open access land.

The cottage had everything to make a comfortable stay. The owners were attentive without being intrusive.

we should recommend a stay at the cottage.

Fantastic cottage for a restful week away

The cottage was very well equiped in all areas. A lovely setting with fantastic views of the Edale hills in the peak district. Close proximity of 2 public houses which both served good food for hill walkers. A great place to escape and have a well earned rest!

Lovely location unfortunately very wet

Owners were very friendly and welcoming and it was nice to be in the country and within a few minutes walk of the village. Weather was very wet and there was not a lot to do in those conditions. Had it been a nice sunny week it would have been a totally different holiday. However the little cottage was very comfortable and well worth a second visit in the future. A lovely spot to visit

Perfect Walking Retreat in the Hills

I liked this so much that I want to keep it a secret. The end of a lane and a pleasant walk to the Edale Hamlet. Fantastic views of Mam Tor and the associated scarp. We only had to use the car once (we took it to Hope to shop and to walk to Castleton along the river - 30/40 mins). Very good value for money and delightful landlady in the farmhouse next door. Edale has a couple of good restaurants/pubs and is easy walking distance (so you can have a couple of holiday pints!). Lovely terrace to sit on, quiet sleeping. Walkers paradise either up into the hills or around the local lanes and easy footpaths of the Edale valley. Put the kids in the camp site near by and mum and dad can stay here perhaps. We're going back in the winter.

The cottage appeared to be in the middle of nowhere, but a ten minute walk along a well marked footpath bought you into the centre of Edale. The pub, The Nags Head, served excellent food all day and in no way were you made to feel unwelcome, in fact if you weren't in walking boots you were out of place.

Mrs Penfold

Excellent views from the sitting room and garden. Very friendly owners.

Mr & Mrs King

The standard of the property was like a hotel suite. It was just what we wanted to be free to come and go. The food at the Nags head was wonderful. Just a 10 minute walk to the village.

Mr Read

Friendly owners, convenient location for walks and village, quiet and off the road location.

Mr Gower

A most wonderful setting; on a sunny day we could have sat for hours just watching the play of the sunlight on the hills. Ideally situated - we made several trips out and would recommend Lyme Park (NT) in Cheshire. Very welcoming, watching the wildlife was fun. A repeat trip is a distinct possibility!

Mr Clack

The cottage is in an ideal location - great for walking. Despite being a working farm it was very quiet and peaceful. Owners helpful and friendly. Lovely views from cottage.

The situation of the cottage was perfect with amazing views down the valley. The owner went to the trouble of providing milk in the fridge on arrival and fresh flowers in the lounge and bedroom which were much appreciated.

Mrs Morris

The setting and those wonderful views. Also, we were able to vacate late and enjoy the last day.

Mrs Upson

The property is on a working farm and in a particularly scenic part of Derbyshire. It was good to see the work involved in sheep farming. The cosy cottage and garden fulfilled all our needs. The owners were very welcoming and sociable. As hill walking was part of the reason for our choice it was good to be able to set off directly from the cottage. Our thanks to our hostess and her husband for sharing their property with us.

It was a peaceful location with excellent views. It was possible to walk directly to places without needing to drive.

Mr Pearson

The cottage was extremely comfortable. We were very impressed with the provision of kitchen items and were especially glad to see a cafetiere as we had left ours at home. The provision of milk and fresh flowers made a big difference too, believe it or not!

Mr Black

We liked the fact that we were in the countryside but could walk into the village with ease. We loved the location and the owners were very friendly and helpful.

Mrs Lines

Edale is a beautiful valley, staying on a farm within walking distance was just right. The owner was very friendly and had provided everything we needed, a hot towel rail was a real plus as we had endless rain and needed some pampering. Very well equipped for a couple.

Mrs Spicer
