Midfeather Cottage, Edale


Beautiful Area

We spent a week in this beautiful Hamlet in Edale. The walks,scenery and wider area were all stunning. the property was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The famouse pub at the start of the Penine way is only a 10 minute walk away across fields. If you wanted to visit Sheffield or Manchester,the there is a mainline station within walking distance. I would have no hesitation in booking this property again and recommending it to couples and families.

Just oerfect.

The cottage was all it appeared to be in the pictures and more. Ample parking, superior cleanliness and outstanding facilities provided.
We shall be returning to this cottage next year and we can't wait...


Wonderful cottage in a wonderful location

Well decorated, furnished and equipped cottage. Isolated quiet location but only a ten minute walk to the pub in Edale. Great walks from the doorstep.

Quiet family break

Midfeather Cottage gave us a quiet and comfortable break at the start of the holidays. The cottage itself was very well equipped, fresh and clean. The condition of the furniture, linen and kitchen items were very good.The location was great for us as we had hoped for a relaxing break but ended up doing some walking in the area as it is so lovely.The cottage is near enough to amenities to be able to eat out and shop when needed. The owners were very welcoming, helpful and friendly but did not intrude on your holiday in spite of all the cottages being close to one another and the farm house.

Edale Secret

A gem of a conversion in a hidden farm. Ideal if, like us, you enjoy walking in the heart of the Peak District. Open country is within a few hundred metres and the village of Edale is a 5 minute stroll. Accomodation iscomfortable and very well equipped. The courtyard location adjacent a working farm adds atmosphere and the occasional farm odour! We loved it.


Stunning cottage in a beautiful location

The cottage was beautifully fitted out, in a modern style but conserving all the original barn features. The location and views were stunning, we had easy access to plenty of footpaths and local towns. The service was friendly but discreet. This cottage worked out great for our long weekend with small children, there were some nice touches, including childrens games and provision of essential items such as soap and kitchen items.

Wonderful location ...

This property and the others at the same location are in a most wonderful location with beautiful views and a short, pleasant walk from Edale village. On the negative side though, we had some problems with the customer service aspect of the holiday which really marred our enjoyment of our stay and we felt particularly let down afterwards by Sykes Holiday Cottages aftercare service. We would also advise anyone considering this property to be aware of the bedroom sizes, especially if you need a cot.

Stunning location and comfortable accommodation

We experienced a most relaxing week in stunning surroundings. The owners were most helpful and accommodating. They were also most reassuring when faced with our vehicle being snowed in for 5 days and arranged for local farming friends to plough an escape route. We are looking forward to returning in the future.

Fantastic location

We recently stayed in the cottage for three nights and were delighted by the location, cleanliness and facilities.

The kitchen facilities and utensils were excellent and included everything we could have possibly needed. The cottage was very clean and tidy and the games and wifi were a lovely touch and not expected.

The only downside is that the second, smaller bedroom is a little compact and may not be suitable for very young children or an adult couple. There is rather a lot of furniture in the room which makes it a little cramped and that meant I had to put my suitcase in the hall unless I wanted to unpack (although as I was there for such a short time I didn't really see the point!) As there is a lot of storage in other parts of the property I would recommend taking out some of the additional chest of drawers to make the room more spacious.

The real selling point of this property is the location. Edale is a beautiful village and the cottage is just far enough away to feel remote. We did some fantastic walks straight from the cottage and then came home to a really comfortable bed.

Would def return.


escape to the country

Me, my husband and my parents have just arrived home from our one week stay at Midfeather. Well what can i say, most definately one of the best holidays we ever had.The cottage itself is beautiful and finished to an extremely high standard and was equiped with everything you could possibly need. Its also spotlessly clean and very cosy (just perfect for relaxing after a long day hiking up the dales!) Just a short and very pleasant walk through the fields is the lovely country pub The Nags Head. Just remember to take a good torch for the walk home through the fields, as its pitch black! Owners are very lovely and helpful. All in all, fab location and accomodation. Cant wait to return next year as we are already missing waking up to nothing more than the sound of the odd sheep talking!!


Brilliant-except for the weather

Owners very good without being intrusive. Superbly converted cottage on a working farm. Very well equipped and in an excellent location.
Within 10 minutes walk to the village pub and shop.
There was nothing to dislike - only the weather during the week we were there! We certainly recommend Midfeather Cottage, and look forward to staying there again.

Lovely location

Best location for hiking around Edale, great food in Edale's pub.
Accomodation provides everything for cooking your own hot meals after a day long ramble, very pleasant, comfortable.
Only downside was the old wooden doors of the rooms that made a lot of noise when opened or shut...if you managed to shut it, that is. But the doors did add to the character of the property.Dont know what the garden is all about...the two square metres paved at the front?or the entire farm which is great

Ideal for a walking holiday.

Out of the way but in the right place for a great walking holiday. The cottage was excellent, everything you could need. Will be back again.


Top cottage in an excellent location

If you are looking for a cottage in the ideal location to explore the peaks this is it, the owner has thought of everything, it was spotless on arrival with good wi fi and it gets 5 stars for the quality of everything in the cottage.
We have been having cottage holidays for over 20 years and are quite picky but this is up with the best of them


Lovely cottage and warm welcome

We've stayed in these cottages for a few years now and have really enjoyed them. This year we stayed in Midfeather Cottage which is well appointed, comfortable and has everything we need. The owners cannot do enough to be helpful.

The views are stunning from the cottage and you can do an amazing walk every day from the front door.

We have already booked a cottage here for next year.


The property was newly converted to a very high standard, in excess of the normal standard of a rental home. The decor and all equipment was very good and we felt very much at home. The cleanliness was first class too. The setting of Midfeather Cottage was stunning, with a huge variety of things to do in the area. We would certainly be happy to go back there again.

Mrs Bayles

The property was of a very high standard in a wonderful location.
Everything you could hope for in a holiday cottage was there and more besides. The owners were helpful, friendly and close to hand if you should need them.
Wonderful and highly recommended!

Mrs Lake

Will definitely go back there in the future. This was our first holiday in the Peak District and it was wonderful. The scenery is breath taking.

Mr & Mrs Blake

Stunning scenery,a good location for walking.

Mr Needham

The cottage is in the most amazing location. You can take walks straight from the front door. Inside the property was, in my opinion, one of the best presented holiday cottages I have ever stayed in. It had a lovely feel to the place that made you feel at home. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a bit of peace and quiet but still wants a good base to tour the Peak District 10/10.

Mr & Mrs Sandford

Excellent property in lovely location, great views and genuine farmyard feel to it. Owners very friendly and helpful. Snowfall on Easter Sunday and baby calf being born whilst we were there, all made it a memorable and enjoyable holiday for our children.

Mrs Robinson

The cottage was beautiful and the location truly excellent with easy access to Pennine Way and Hope Valley, short drive to Ladybower/Howden Dams. There were some lovely touches from the owners (fresh flowers when we arrived, milk and biscuits etc). Being part of a working farm the cottage is in the perfect environment for adults and children alike with sheep/lambs, cows/calves, cats, dog and swallows all resident. We even saw a calf being born. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, will go back and would recommend to friends.

Ms Harrison

Mr & Mrs Reynolds

It was a very quiet, away from it all holiday.

Mrs Titman

The cottage was in an ideal location for walking. You could do many walks from the cottage without having to use the car. Closeness to the rail station for trips to Manchester and Sheffield.
Beautiful scenery and welcoming hosts.

Mrs Watkins

The peace and quiet along with the great hospitality made it perfect. The holiday went without a problem and we slept like logs for the first time in years.

Mr Muscroft

Mr Dennington

The location is wonderful and the owners were very friendly and yet very discreet. The views and walks from the door were fabulous.

Miss Ryan

High standard of decor. Very warm and cosy. Friendly owner, very welcoming.


Absolutely wonderful weather and Edale valley was equally fantastic. Cottage was just great and the owners were extremely helpful. My youngest loved the lambs and there were marvelous walks. Cycling in Derwent Valley was a great family day out.

Mr Westbrook

This was the best equipped cottage that we have ever stayed in and the location is stunning! The friendliness of the owners on the farm made our stay even more enjoyable. We didn't want to come home!

Mr Loach

Magnificent scenery, cottage situated at end of the road without being too isolated. Friendly host next door and lovely farm setting (barn of lambs next to us). A beautifully presented property.

Mrs Mellersh

We had a lovely few days in the peace and quiet with a short walk to the pub. Wonderful!

Mrs Titman

The barn conversion was very roomy. The kitchen within the living room worked very well and the bedrooms had lovely high ceilings. There was washing up liquid, dishwashing tablets, jay cloths and plenty of toilet rolls. The lighting was very good throughout the cottage. Excellent facilities.

Miss Langley

Excellent small cottage in a fantastic location for exploring the High Peaks.
Good walks straight from the door.
Owner was friendly and welcoming. Edale village is only a short walk across the fields with 2 good pubs.

The location of the cottage was perfect for the walking we wanted to do and for touring the area. It was also peaceful and quiet with lovely views. It was warm and cosy too.

Mrs McVey

Midfeather Cottage was beautiful, very clean, well equipped, warm with plenty of hot water, a powerful shower, comfortable beds and furniture and all equipment working well. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The location is amazing with walking straight from the door, wonderful views and plenty to do and see in the area. We intend to return and would highly recommend it to friends and family. Sykes were efficient and the booking process was simple and hassle-free. Thank you!

Decent, good value property in a great location. Lovely bedding!


The thoughtfulness of the owner. The peace and tranquillity of the location.

Mr Staples

Exceptional quality of equipment and cleanliness. You could not ask for better. Amazing situation for a walking holiday. Very pleasant and helpful landlady.

Mr Sharpley

Lovely accommodation, everywhere clean and spotless. The children loved the feel of being on the farm. We rented both cottages so the whole family could be together; it was brilliant!

Mrs Wood

Very friendly, helpful owner. The property was up a little track, away from it all, just the sound of bleating sheep in the morning, really relaxing.

Mrs Smith

A lovely cottage in a stunning location. Completely quiet and peaceful, away from roads, beautiful views and great walks from the door. We had a wonderful time here and Midfeather Cottage is one of the best holiday cottages we've ever rented.

Really nice quiet location..a great place to chill for a week.

Great property set in stunning countryside. A good base for walking locally and within easy reach of other attractions by short car journeys. Midfeather is a lovely, warm and comfortable cottage to return to during the colder weather. It's a very well equipped cottage run by lovely hosts.

Mrs Lee

Midfeather Cottage provided our family with a great location to relax, complete with wonderful views & very friendly & helpful owners. We will certainly be booking again later this year, & recommend this location to anyone looking for a nice quiet place to relax.

The general location of the cottage is great for walking direct from the door. The owner is very friendly and helpful and keeps the cottage in a first rate condition. We have already decided that if possible we will return later in the year.

Mr Clarke

We have been taking cottage holidays for the past 20years and this has to be one of the cleanest and with the highest standard of furnishings that we have been to. The property had the wow factor as soon as we opened the front door. The owner was helpful without being intrusive and was there when needed. 10 out of 10.

Mrs Shaw

We all very much enjoyed our visit; the cottage was perfect for us in terms of layout as it lent itself perfectly to cooking and socialising. The dishwasher made a massive difference too. The bedrooms were a nice size and very comfortable. The property was surrounded by stunning countryside and the owners were very friendly and available if we needed them. We will definitely go back one day.

Mr Payne

The cottage had everything that you could possibly need and the area was fantastic. It was also
spotlessly clean - highly recommended.
