This is our third holiday in this property, which should say it all. The welcome from the owner and the lovely cottage itself make this a superb holiday choice. We enjoy seeing the animals close to the property. It's a quiet location, apart from the occasionally noisy Guinea Fowl. Cuckoostone Cottage is close to many great attractions in Matlock and the Peak District.
Mrs Boyce

This was our third visit, it is a beautiful cottage in lovely position with lots to do in Derbyshire. The owners are super and always helpful. We will be back next year if we can.

Always a pleasure to return to the very peaceful and relaxing comfort provided by Cuckoostone and the enjoyment of so many different birds and animals, will hope to return yet again.
Mrs Lewis
January 2016
The cottage was absolutely delightful. It was far above what we expected, it was much bigger and had everything we needed and more. We can't wait to return.

We had a fantastic time Cuckoostone Cottage, it was the best equipped that we have ever stayed in. The location was as described and perfect with beautiful views. The owner was a lovely host, but didn't interfere but was there if we needed anything. She was kind and patient with my young children showing us the animals, even got them to help her feed the sheep and bring them into their barn at night.
Miss Weldrake

This is our fourth visit to Cuckoostone Cottage. As always a most pleasant welcome from the owners and a most enjoyable stay. The cottage is warm and comfortable and meets our needs in every way. We hope to return for a fifth visit some time soon.
Miss Bowden

Lovely owners and a cosy warm cottage with lots of amenities. The log fire is a treat, and the sofas and beds were comfy, couldn't ask for more! The location is beautiful and convenient to Matlock, Chatsworth and Chesterfield. A lovely place to stay if you have children. Would highly recommend.
Mr Hicks
September 2015
A wonderful property in beautiful surroundings. We had a fabulous holiday there and would recommend to anyone who enjoys the countryside.
Mr Mountain
June 2015
The best cottage we have been to so far. A real country cottage with good views and surrounded by animals.
Mrs Sykes
July 2015
The cottage was first class, in lovely quiet location, with beautiful views and the owners were very friendly and helpful.
Mrs Mott
June 2015
A beautiful location with wonderful views over the Derbyshire countryside but not too isolated, only ten minutes into Matlock for shops and restaurants etc. It was a lovely roomy cottage, each bedroom having its own bathroom was very useful. A great holiday.
Ms Tye
April 2015
Cuckoostone was probably the most well equipped cottage we have ever stayed in with lots of kitchen implements. The cottage was lovely and warm; easy to heat with everything on one level. There was the added bonus of a bathroom per bedroom. The owner could not have been a better hostess and the cottage was in a lovely situation; secluded and quiet but central for a whole host of interesting places.
Mrs Walker
March 2015
Cuckoostone Cottage was a delight, as was the animals. Particularly liked the lambs, and of course the views were stunning.
Mr Gibson
November 2014
Couldn't fault the property in any way - a real home from home.
Miss Thomas
March 2015
Quiet, excellent views, peaceful and relaxing. Had a warm welcome from the owners - nothing was too much trouble. The well equipped kitchen meant we could have a belated Christmas cook in and then collapse in front of the wood burner. Had a lovely large porch for the storage of boots, coats and doggy towels.
Mrs Rutherford
June 2014
A great cottage with friendly owners, it was very clean and well equipped.
Mrs Wormstone
July 2014
The owners were very welcoming, and nothing was too much trouble. All in all, a very good weeks holiday.
Mr Lyons

Excellent Cottage, quiet rural location and charming owners.
Miss Weldrake
November 2014
This is our third visit to Cuckoostone Cottage and it certainly won't be our last. We simply cannot fault it. We are a party with an age range from 4 to 80 and this cottage meets the needs of everyone. It is warm, cosy and so well appointed. The owner is very welcoming and friendly - nothing is too much trouble. Our 4 year old son particularly likes the animals and going out to see Ned the donkey every day. Spot on!
Mrs Twyman
June 2014
A lovely cottage owned by a very friendly and lovely family who welcomed us and showed us around the cottage. Outside of the property were lovely views, ducks on the pond, a horse, pony, donkey and chickens. Instructions and guides in the Cottage were very informative and we did eat in one of the recommended pubs which was great.
Mr Boyce
May 2014
This is the best cottage that we have used - a beautiful position with wonderful views. My husband is disabled and we found the cottage most convenient - the middle shower room,though small, had all the needed hand-rails. We all had a wonderful holiday with lovely hosts.
Mrs West
April 2014
Third time at this cottage love it more each visit. The owner is so kind and makes you feel at home.
Mr Smith
May 2014
One of the best self catering cottages we have ever stayed in. It had everything we needed and more besides! Very friendly, attentive owners who live next door. Beautiful views of the Derbyshire countryside and lovely walks from the door. There is a lot to do in the area, even if the weather is poor. Haddon Hall is a real gem, very well preserved and with beautiful gardens. In good weather there are a multitude of lovely walks of varying distances and many excellent pubs serving very tasty food.
Mrs Johnson
March 2014
This was our second visit and we hope to go again! The situation is lovely, with views from every window. The cottage is warm and welcoming, with the owners personal care clearly evident in details - even hot water bottles and umbrellas available! We enjoyed the wood burner, and watching the lambs through the window.
Mrs Price
March 2014
Beautiful setting, very peaceful and the cottage was perfect.
Mrs Carnell
March 2014
A lovely cottage. Very well equipped, clean and warm. The holiday was made very special by the lovely owners who live on site and shared the animals with my grandchildren. The setting is beautiful and there are lots of walks.

Mrs Morris
August 2013
The standard of the cottage exceeded our expectations on arrival and our host was very welcoming. The cottage was very well equipped and we felt comfortable and 'at home'. This cottage is in a quiet location yet close to Matlock and all it's attractions.
Mr Deem
November 2013
At this time of year, coming in from an enjoyable day out to sit and relax after dinner by the log fire,we were, to quote the phrase 'snug as a bug in a rug'. The beds were most comforting, the surrounds were charming, the welcome was pleasant. Every thought about detail had gone into making our stay one of the best. We could not, no matter how we tried, find fault with the location, accommodation, and friendliness of the owners.One word sums it all up; superb!
Mrs Tompkins
May 2013
The peace and quiet of the whole cottage and surrounding area and the friendliness and care supplied by the owners living next door. They were very helpful indeed. Never pushy but there if they were needed.
Mr Blackford
May 2013
We loved being deep in the countryside, no roads or traffic noise, lovely views all around lots of animals and birds. Good walks from the cottage.

Cuckoo Stone Cottage is set in very picturesque surroundings. It's very spacious, has plenty of different animals of interest and is also very peaceful. Add to that, very friendly hosts, so what else could one wish for.

The situation of the cottage is very tranquil as it is situated at the end of a long drive with the owners lovely friendly dogs to greet you,also take your walking boots - there are lovely walks in the area .There are also plenty of places of interest a short drive away. Would recommend a stay here
Mr Houldsworth
November 2012
Extremely well appointed cottage that we were able to immediately relax in and make ourselves at home with everything to hand. The kitchen was particularly well equipped. The location was also perfect with solitude and great views but with local amenities close to hand.
Mr Whitehead
September 2012
The cottage was excellent. The family and grandsons loved it. The owners were very helpful, even putting the cot together for the one year old and sorting out the bedding the three year old preferred. The views from the front of the cottage, across the valley and golf course, were fantastic. The children preferred the view of the horses and donkey at the back. This is the best cottage we have stayed in, ideal for a family of six. There will be a return visit.
Mrs Tompkins
November 2012
The owners could not have been more helpful and friendly. They helped to make our stay most enjoyable. We can't wait to go again next year.

This was the nicest and best stocked cottage we have ever rented. The location is ideal, very peaceful and yet not far from Matlock and surrounding area.
Mr McCrudden

A property that delivered everything and more than advertised with exceptionally helpful owners. It was relaxing and provided ideal accommodation for all our family. We look forward to returning in the future.
Miss Jordan

The cottage was absolutely amazing. Well located for walks and close enough to bus routes and local town location. Would highly recommend for a walkers/family holiday or even just people exploring Derbyshire for the first time.
Mr Garrett
January 2012
Cuckoo Stone Cottage is in a good position for walking and good for the dogs. Close to lots of places of interest.
Mrs Crittall
March 2012
We have never used Sykes Cottages before and we were delighted with Cuckoo Stone Cottage, where absolutely everything we needed was provided. The 3 ensuite bedrooms were perfect for our 3 couples. The cottage is a quiet haven with lovely views. We will certainly use Sykes again, and hopefully this cottage.
Mr Mitson
June 2012
Peace and tranquillity at its best; away from all the hassle of everyday life with very friendly and helpful hosts and a selection of animals to add interest to our already perfect holiday. Thanks to all concerned- we hope to return!

Miss Weldrake
November 2011
We had such a lovely time in this cosy holiday cottage. It was a 'home from home' with everything we needed on hand. It was really well equipped. Our 18 month old son particularly enjoyed going out each morning to see the animals particularly 'Ned' the donkey - excellent!
Mr Carvalho
January 2012
The place is lovely and much bigger than it looks in the picture. The location brings the best of being in the country together with the convenience of being just a few minutes from Matlock's amenities. The owner and her family were very kind and helpful and we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay.
Mr Dick
September 2011
Excellent accommodation in a place of considerable beauty with good transport links and a very helpful host - we shall return.

Mr Little
July 2011
This property has quality and style - we really liked the feel of comfort and relaxation given by the property and it's location which enhanced the enjoyment of your holiday.
Mrs Little
July 2011
Peaceful country venue with the sound of farmyard animals. We liked the fact that the children were shown the areas they could access without upsetting the animals. They were able to be hands on with the horses, goats, chickens and some wonderful runner ducks. The views from every window of the cottage were spectacular. The owner of the cottage made sure that we had plenty of dry wood for the logburner which was very easy to light if needed. She also left wallets full of leaflets giving information on places to visit and eat which were very useful. If you enjoy walking then there were directions for some walks that could be accessed close by. One of the main advantages of the cottage was that we were only about 35 mins from many interesting and beautiful places to visit which were in the main, free for all!
Mrs Martin
June 2011
The hospitality of the owners was unsurpassed. The location of the cottage was perfect and enhanced our holiday no end! The log burner was a cosy way to finish our evenings. Cuckoo Stone Cottage is a true gem.
Mr Harrison
June 2011
The cottage was above our expectations and was the best equipped cottage we have stayed in and this is our 6th holiday of this nature. Our dog was most welcome with very limited restrictions. The owners could not be more helpful and the fresh eggs were a real bonus to start your day.
Mr Mitchell
June 2011
We have stayed in many cottages over the last 30 years and the overall standard of this cottage is up with the best we have ever stayed in. We were made really welcome and were left a print out of the weather for the week and all nearby events. It was lovely to be able to look out of the kitchen and lounge windows at horses, chickens and a donkey in the field. We couldn't fault the rooms and bathrooms.
Ms Rudd
May 2011
Cuckoo Stone Cottage was beautiful! The owners could not have been friendlier or more helpful. A fantastic holiday was had by all, we only wish we could have stayed longer. This the first really dog friendly cottage we have stayed in.
Mr Butler
May 2011
An outstanding cottage in a peaceful and beautiful setting. The owner was extremely pleasant and helpful. The animals i.e. dogs, donkey, pony, horses etc. were a joy to come back to. We have been on self-catering holidays for over 30 years and Cuckoo Stone Cottage ranks as one of the best cottages we have used. This was our first holiday with Sykes Cottages and we were impressed with the website and the staff. We will definitely recommend both the cottage and Sykes Cottages to our friends. Many thanks.
Mrs Nixon
May 2011
We stayed at Cuckoo Stone Cottage, Matlock and just wanted to let you know what a fabulous time we had. The cottage was spotless, well cared for and catered for our every need, including our dog. The owners were very friendly and helpful and location wise it couldn't have been more perfect - quiet yet close to attractions eg Chatsworth. We would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes walking or visiting places and its particularly good for those with dogs. We'll definitely be going back.

Lovely setting, cosy with log fire and comfortable ensuite to each bedroom which is a bonus. Has everything you need in the kitchen and lovely owners who are always on hand to help if you need anything. It was lovely to see the sheep just outside the window and the other animals around. We went in December but would love to return sometime in the summer months. Would definitely recommend.

The cottage was lovely-the way you would have converted it if you had done it yourself! It was very well equipped too. However the best thing was the welcome we had and the time and patience from the owners sharing their time and their animals. We found it the ideal place to meet up with our extended Derbyshire family.

We have just spent a week in this beautiful cosy cottage and it was wonderful. The very thick stone walls made it totally sound proof . It is set in the county with fantastic views in a very peacefull setting and is a animal and bird lovers paradise. The owners thoughtful organisation made it that everything you could ever need was provided. The property is VERY dog friendly and our dogs were welcomed as much as we were. We strongly recommend this lovely spacious well equipped comfortable cottage were we felt really at home.
July 2015
This place is out of the way up a long, long lane Sandy Lane (so needs transport but is so worth while. The owners are so kind and helpful they have a Donkey,pony, Horse, Chickens, Ducks.pea hens and Judy the Pig. They are so happy to let you go in the fields and pet and feed these animals,there are squirrels who eat off the bird table outside the living room window to entertain you when TV is boring. Three bedrooms all en-suite beautiful decorated and so clean. Fridge, freezer, washing machine, drier, dishwasher, etc. so near Chatsworth and peak district and caves great walking country. Cannot stop but must
August 2013
A warm welcome in a beautiful setting made our holiday restful and special
August 2013
Would definitely recommend. This beautiful cottage had everything we needed with 3 en suite bedrooms which was essential as we had our 2 elderly mothers with us. We had glorious weather which was the icing on the cake and enabled us to explore this lovely part of Derbyshire. Will definitely return one day
December 2011
Couldn't have asked for more. 1)Very friendly owners 2) Superbly equipped accommodation 3)Beautiful location 4)Convenient for exploring Derbyshire The only bit liked least was having to leave.
May 2012
We stayed in this home from home for the bank holiday at the beginning of May The cottage has three lovely bedrooms all with ensuite which is great for a group of friends or a large family party. The kitchen had everyting we needed and the lounge was so cosy with the wood burner going. Plenty of heat and hot water. Outside there is a seating area in view of the donkey paddock (Ned loves apples!) but it was too cold for us to use the bbq. The views over the valley are spectacular and because you are at the end of a lane about half a mile from the main road, it is safe for children and animals. We will be back in the autumn.

September 2012
We stayed here for two weeks and had a marvelous time, the property was comfortable and the owners extremely helpful and pleasant. We stay in a holiday home twice a year in the UK and this was one of the best.
