We were wowed by the views from this quiet location; the gardens were very pretty, well kept and with a swimming pool at the bottom of the garden. We found the property spacious with a well equipped kitchen and supplying everything we needed. There were comfortable beds and the rooms were decorated to a nice standard. It was a fantastic barn conversion which we would certainly recommend. We really did unwind and enjoy our family time together and wouldn't hesitate to return.

Spout Cottage was wonderful. As soon as you entered the front door, it felt like home. Large rooms, lovely beds and plenty of room everywhere. Clean, comfortable and everything there needed to ensure our stay was good. Even Mischief the dog enjoyed himself! We will definitely be rebooking but in the spring or summer.

The location was idyllic, the pool fantastic and we loved that the three bedrooms each had their own staircase. It was a really lovely holiday.
October 2013
We liked the fact that Spout Cottage felt lived in and loved. It is pretty isolated, but that was what we wanted. Local communities are close by if you need them, but essentially this is a place to really find peace and tranquillity. We would definitely recommend the property, and hope to visit again.

Spout Cottage is in a beautiful location with walks from the property and quiet lanes for cycling. We loved the garden with its choice of seating areas and views across the valley. We much appreciated being able to use the owner's pool! The property manager gave us a warm friendly welcome and came in for a chat just before we left. We will certainly return to Spout Cottage.
Mrs Wright
July 2011
Spout Cottage is in a very quiet location and close to many places of interest. There are beautiful views all around. The cottage is huge, with separate stairs to each bedroom and it is very comfortable. I was met at the cottage by a very nice lady who welcomed me. It was wonderful to see Llamas in the field at the bottom of the garden.
Mr Harkness

The beauty of the scenery to be seen from the property and the quiet. One of the nicest cottages we have stayed in. An added advantage was the pool which was very useful when the weather turned hot!

February 2010
we arrived on the Friday night to a lovely clean warm cottage tucked away on a quiet hillside. Some of our group had the dinner on in a well furnished kitchen, with enough plates for the 8 of us. the lounge was plenty big enough for all of us & the 3 rooms were all of a good size. The next morning we woke to look across the dale at the stunning views. we walked several times over the weekend & couldn't believe what a find the cottage was. By the time Monday morning came, none of us were disappointed to be snowed in! Soon enough a local farmer arrived to tow us up the hill so we could be on our way. Everyone had a really good time & we all want to go back! Best part: the location Worts part: the local pub doesnt serve food!?

Mrs Bregazzi

The privacy of each bedroom (separate staircases) plus comfortable communal areas for all the family. Spectacular views, peaceful and relaxing near a lovely village with useful shops and pubs for lunch. Super walks on your doorstep, wood-burning stove and all mod cons in the kitchen.

Mrs Pacitto

The cottage has simple, understated quality. It had everything we needed for both families and we had a lovely - but far too short - weekend! The location is absolutely stunning - fabulous views but only six miles from Bakewell. Great walks right from the doorstep.

April 2016
This is a really gorgeous quirky cottage with three good sized bedrooms each with their own staircase! It is in the most fabulous location, ideal for visiting Chatsworth, Dove Dale, Matlock etc. The house is so peaceful and quiet with superb views from the windows and a lovely outdoor seating area. We had very good directions (as it could be hard to find just with a satnav) and a visit from the lovely caretaker Mrs Patterson to check all was well. The kitchen was very well equipped (apart from decent frying pans!) with plenty of crockery, glassware and utensils, a good range cooker and dishwasher. The downsides are that house smells of damp dog constantly, which could probably be addressed by replacing the carpets with floor tiles and putting in leather, rather than fabric, sofas. It was not spotlessly clean - lots of aged cobwebs and dust, although the kitchen and bathrooms were sufficiently clean. The house could really benefit from a really good deep clean (which is surprising so early in the holiday season). Also, the beds were not terribly comfortable and had very tired bedding and bedlinen that could definitely benefit from being replaced. Overall, I was delighted with the choice we made though, we had a really wonderful stay and I would recommend this cottage to others.
September 2011
I was lucky to have beautiful weather when I went to Spout cottage, so able to enjoy walks from the front door over fields enjoying wonderful views. The cottage was lovely, well furnished, and plenty of kitchen equipment to feel at home. The bedrooms are very comfortable. I can't fault the cottage and felt very much at home there.
May 2014
What a lovely cottage and a fantastic holiday. The cottage is warm, cosy and comfortable and has everything you can need. It is set in an open garden together with the owners property which has been beautifully landscaped and maintained. We visited with an extended family group and 2 dogs, we all loved it and the dogs loved having free run of the garden. Would love to go back and think at least half of us (an both dogs) would like to move in! Highly recommended!

August 2011
This cottage is in a beautiful location down a twisting narrow country lane. So quiet and peaceful with lovely views of countryside and llamas! The cottage has been renovated to a high standard and is very comfortable with three bedrooms ingeniously designed. The weather was warm enough for our son to take advantage of the pool while we enjoyed relaxing in the garden. There is plenty to see and do in the surrounding area but, if you do not feel like always negotiating the narrow one lane road, you can always just relax in comfort.
July 2010
It was absolutely fantastic! For someone who wants somewhere in the middle of nowhere with amazing views and footpath on the doorstep it is perfect. Katya, my german shepherd dog, loved being free to roam around with only lamas to worry her!
July 2010
Excellent cottage clean and tidy, the location was fantastic as well. Only one problem we asked for enclosed garden when we booked, but found no fences at all.
Mrs C MacNicol
September 2010
Holidaying with 3 generations plus a dog it's often hard to find somewhere that suits all but Spout Cottage did just that.It had all the comforts of home for my elderly parents plus walks long and short for the more active amongst us with fabulous views whenever we stepped outside. It had the feeling of complete remoteness but with the nearby villages and Bakewell providing all necessities. We even had to do an emergency car repair and the garage in Youlgrave was able to fit us in at a day's notice!
May 2010
I have already given my feedback on the holiday in Spout cottage. It was very nice and we all had a lovely time.
Sam & Co
May 2010
No problems booking through Sykes. We had the most amazing time. The location was superb, scenery stunning and tranquility bliss. The cottage was clean throughout. Everything was thought of, a proper home from home accomodation. The owner and Mrs Patterson were very welcoming. A real rural retreat and one that we'd highly recommend. Thankyou for a wonderful time. Nat, Sam, Rob and the dogs.
December 2009
We arrived at the cottage and received a warm welcome from the housekeeper who gave us lots of useful information. We loved the layout of the cottage, the eco heating system, the lovely spacious ensuite bedroom and the large farmhouse kitchen. The location was beautiful and the views spectacular. The village of Youlgrave a mile away had a good selection of pubs but the butchers was closed for the week we were there and the shops a bit limited. We loved the surrounding walks, the wildlife,the views and the cottage.
