The photos do not do this property justice, it is excellent accommodation. It was spacious downstairs, and highly furnished with a well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms are both en-suite with large showers. It is in a quiet area on the edge of the glorious Derbyshire dales.

A well thought out cottage which was short of nothing. In rural surroundings and short distances to various other towns, and good walking areas close by for dogs. Can definitely recommend.

A really lovely cottage which was beautifully appointed and so convenient for days out and sightseeing. One of the nicest cottages we have stayed at.

A good location in a quiet rural environment, with plenty of places of interest to visit. Probably the best property we have visited, renovated and presented to a high standard.

Found this cottage through Sykes rentals, booked for a week in late September. We were immediately impressed with the Old Blacksmiths. It's had a nice modern refurbishment and is warm and cosy. We felt was equipped with everything we needed (apart from perhaps some kitchen tongs!). The owner greeted us and left cakes, milk and tea bags on arrival which was a nice touch. As the descriptions says, both bedrooms have their own shower room en suite which we found very useful. The cottage is in a lovely quiet setting and looks out over fields. Made a good base for exploring the peaks and local sights such as Heights of Abraham, Chatsworth and Hardwick Hall.

We stayed at the Old Blacksmiths Cottage and couldn't have been happier. The cottage is clean, modern, well equipped and in a beautiful location. Our host Andrew checked us in and was extremely helpful and whilst this is on a working smallholding, it was very quiet and peaceful and we were very much given our privacy. I couldnt recommend this place highly enough and its so central to everything but in the middle of the countryside we felt very at ease and peaceful. Definitely try the Devonshire Arms at Beeley, what a find! Great food great staff unbelievable compared to what else is around. And I would say the same about the Old Blacksmiths, and if we find ourselves coming back to Derbyshire, this is for sure one of the best places we have stayed!
