We stayed visiting family in the East Midlands, from Australia, plus points-position it's around three miles from Derby city centre but you do need a car
Tess and Bill are friendly, helpful and very approachable, Tess bales on a weekly basis so expect a cake to welcome you.
The accomodation is described appropriately both here and on Sykes Cottages Webpage.
Good size, excellent parking. Good position, beautiful views and nice walks if the weathers good.
The only negative and the reason for four not five stars is the cottage needs comfy sofas as we stayed over three weeks and the current ones are not comfy to sit on watching TV, also the whole place is needing redecorating it's pretty shabby chic. Having said that it's warm and the beds are comfy, we will definitely stay again next time we're in the area
