The honeystone building has been skilfully converted and has the all conveniences of modern day living yet retains a wealth of character. There are six opulent bedrooms, two with en-suites and two of the rooms share a 'Jack and Jill' bathroom. There is a further lavish shower room on the ground floor. The kitchen is beautifully fitted and boasts a range cooker and large dining area, which leads to the warm and inviting sitting room with its exposed beams and open fire.

Mr Rattray
July 2016
We particularly liked the large open plan kitchen/dining/lounge and the very large dining table. It was a spacious property for the 13 of us. The rural surroundings and views of the Roaches were lovely. Being able to walk to Tittesworth Reservoir and park was a great attraction.

The whole accommodation was just divine, and perfect for a girly weekend. The location was perfect with pub close by! It was very comfortable and we had a friendly welcome.
Mrs Laity

A lovely holiday barn, perfect for us with walks on the doorstep and the The Peak District a short car trip away. The large kitchen come dining room and lounge all in one worked extremely well for the eleven of us. The owner was friendly and gave us some local information on the area, e.g. walks, shops and pubs. We all would be happy to return.
Mrs Duckworth

Mrs Bainbrigge

We had a lovely warm welcome with flowers, wine, chocolates and the log fire roaring away. The owner visited us and explained about all we required to know, nothing was to much trouble. The barn is furnished beautifully. Three generations of family and friends celebrated my 65th birthday, it was perfect for all.

Ms Pearson

What a lovely place! We were made very welcome by our hosts who offered us all the information we needed on the property itself and in the wider community (for walks / pubs etc) The building itself was fantastic, roomy and cosy at the same time, standard of decoration was excellent and we had a great stay. Would very much recommend and would book again if returning to the area

Lovely big communal living dining room, with space to seat everyone. Very warm, a good heating system. We had a great time.
Miss Dorney
December 2013
The owners were warm, friendly and welcoming. The layout is perfect to allow everyone to be in the same place at the same time, which was especially great if you usually spend a lot of your time in the kitchen; but also generally allowed everyone to freely mingle and catch up with one another! Perfect for a group holiday. Beautiful scenery on your doorstep and a playground minutes away for children, young and old! Thoroughly enjoyable.
Mrs Creese
December 2014
The accommodation was lovely, very comfortable and clean, with some luxury touches. There were fluffy white towels and underfloor heating, little touches that make all the difference. The owner was very friendly and helpful and ensured our stay was seamless. It was also a great location, with a good pub, excellent play park and reservoir within walking distance.

Very friendly welcome, the cottage was lovely, nothing was too much trouble, even the dog and chickens gave us a welcome. Lots to do at the reservoir and excellent pub in Meerbrook within walking distance.
Mrs Donovan

The property is a barn conversion. There was ample room for sitting and relaxing in the large lounge/dining kitchen. The rooms were spacious and well furnished. The setting is beautiful, Meerbrook is a tiny village close to Tittesworth reservoir which has an excellent playground for children of all ages. The Lazy Trout is the village pub within walking distance of Alderlee Farm where the Rindle is situated. We enjoyed an excellent meal there and were well looked after. The week went very quickly, there is so much to see and do. We recommend the Monsal Trail for cycling or walking.

Very comfortable, warm and clean cottage. We had a really lovely Christmas with our family. Great location, plenty to do. Owners are very helpful, feeding time with the chickens was fun. All round great place to stay will definitely book again and would recommend to others.
Mrs Payne
January 2013
The welcome from the owners was very warm. The chocolates, wine and flowers were lovely touches. The entire property was spotless and very well equipped. It was really nice to go to a large property that catered for large groups and was very well thought out. Cooking facilities were excellent - massive cooking pots and the oven/cooker heated up quickly and was easy to cook on for large groups. It was also pleasing to have so many bathrooms with excellent water pressure - whether a stand alone shower or over the bath. And best of all, the open plan living space was superb. Fantastically large dining table and plenty of space in the lounge area for everyone to sit down and relax.
Miss Fisher
September 2012
The house was spacious enough for a large group, with plenty of seating - both at the table and in the lounge area. The photos don't do it justice and the owners were very helpful.
Mrs Knibbs

Mr Hooper
December 2011
Perfect for a large family holiday. Good walks and the surrounding area was excellent. Local pub was an easy walk with a nice atmosphere and very good food. For a large property it takes a lot of beating.
Miss Rawlings
September 2011
The property was modern but also had 'features' that made the house cosy and homely. The size was great as well as the kitchen, dining and living area all being connected. The location was lovely and the host was really friendly. The house was very clean and organised. I'm sure it would also be very cosy in the winter time with the underfloor heating and real stove fire. Everyone that went had a very good time and we would go back again!
Mrs Durose
January 2012
The area is great for walking and outdoor activities and only a 5 minutes walk to Tittesworth reservoir. The Roaches are also close enough to walk to, about 30 minutes. The Lazy Trout pub in the village does great food and ales. The lounge and kitchen area of The Rindle was perfect for a sociable time with our family. The owners were very helpful and welcoming. Nice and warm with plenty of hot water for everyone. A lovely time was had by everyone, thank you!
Mrs Allinson

The cottage was lovely, spacious, well furnished, warm and clean. It was a perfect base to explore. The grounds were perfect for our children to have some freedom. We all loved it and would definitely recommend.

The Rindle is set in a nice, quiet rural area with friendly proprietors. Good pub serving food within walking distance and it was central for touring.
Miss Friend

The Rindle is set in a wonderful location. We would definitely recommend this cottage to friends and family as it is a brilliant find! The interior of the cottage really made us feel very welcome and at home. We are hoping to find another excuse to come back very soon!
Mrs Jones
January 2011
We have been taking an annual cottage holiday with a large group of friends for over 10 years now and this is one of the best cottages we have stayed in. We loved the open plan set up, there was lots of space, it's very well equipped and it was great to have a nice pub within 5 minutes walk. We have used Sykes for the last few years now and have never been disappointed. Thanks for a great weekend.
Miss O'Donoughue
May 2010
The size of the property met our needs perfectly. It was beautifully decorated and maintained and we had an excellent few days there. The location is fantastic allowing us to participate in outdoor activities like walking, cycling, horse riding and paint balling. Lovely local pub within walking distance as well. The owners were friendly and helpful. Could not fault this property and it was exceptional value for money.
Ms Arrowsmith
October 2010
Fabulous house - just what we were looking for. Although there were 13 of us we never felt overcrowded. There was enough seating for us all (living area and dining table). The house was exactly as advertised and very comfortable. The owner was very friendly and made us welcome. All the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Would definitely go again.
Ms Brain
August 2010
This property is perfect for spending time in a big group...the living/dining/kitchen space is spacious and comfortable. I would definitely recommend it to other groups! It's close proximity to the reservoir is also really good for walks etc.

Mr Crisp

The cottage was in an excellent location for walking and sightseeing. It is in a very small village and off the main road and is therefore quiet and peaceful. The owners were extremely welcoming.
Mr Snedker
November 2009
A lovely newly renovated property. The size of the open plan kitchen dining living room made it easy to accommodate everyone when it came to meal times. The number of bathrooms made it easy for everyone to get up and out in the morning.
Mrs Mottram

It was an excellent place, we all really enjoyed it. Really immaculate but rustic cottage, nice and spacious. Nicely decorated. The surrounding area was beautiful. The pub near by was really cosy. The owner was lovely, so helpful and very kind! A great weekend had by all. Thanks!

The setting was amazing, and the snow made it even better!!! The owners were very helpful and easily available for any problems. The overall finish and decor was much higher than in previous properties we've rented in only slightly lower price categories.

Mrs James
September 2009
The location, the accommodation and the friendliness of the owners. The house was very well proportioned, clean and tidy. We had sufficient space to give all 3 families their own space when needed whilst also allowing us all to get together as a large family. The rooms were all good sizes and beautifully decorated. There was a TV with free view, DVD books and a radio. The kitchen was fully equipt. Overall a very pleasant and welcoming home. The surrounding area was good for long walks.
November 2016
A most suitable accommodation for any size of party . Ours comprised of 12 people and everything was perfect . The accommodation is extremely well equipped and most comfortable with all the nice touches . There is plentiful heat and ample hot water even when all the showers etc are in use at the same time. On arrival there was a bottle of wine, flowers and chocolates waiting which was a nice welcome. Suzanne ,the owner came and said "hi" and she was most friendly. Nearby there is plenty to do and the local pub ,the lazy trout , is well worth the 5 minute stroll to. We will return here for sure.
September 2013
We had a family get together to celebrate my wife's birthday. Most of us did not know the area, but it is lovely with many interesting walks. The accommodation suited us very well and there was ample of space outside for grandchildren to play. The local pubs we sampled were very good. An excellent weekend. We had perfect weather, and my only doubt was over how we would have coped with poor weather.
May 2016
Just spent 4 days with a group of girls celebrating a friends 60th birthday. absolutely lovely,clean and comfortable accommodation. In a lovely location-quiet (yet close to civilisation) Understanding and hospitiable family who own it Would recommend it to anyone

Eleven of our family from around the world stayed In this gorgeous barn. We were very lucky with the weather and had a fab week here. The barn is so roomy and well equipped and I liked the fact that the large kitchen flowed into the lounge so that everyone was together. It was very clean and well equipped.The dining table was huge and sat everybody comfortably with room to spare. There was plenty of sofas in the lounge area. There are two large bedrooms on the ground floor and also a wet room. Please be aware there are steps around the barn which if you are wheelchair bound but I managed fine with crutches.We were greeted on arrival and the chocolates and wine were very much appreciated. There is a pub a few minutes walk away and a reservoir with a lovely play park and places to barbecue and picnic. Water sports were on offer while we were there. There are so many places to visit and the scenery is awesome. There are supermarkets ,shops etc a short drive away. We all enjoyed our stay but the highlight for the boys was the friendly rooster that came to visit each evening to be fed and petted lol. We would definitely recommend this barn and the owners were so helpful. Thanks for having us it was a wonderful holiday.

Beautiful building in a beautiful spot. The kitchen is very well stocked and the property has a great communal room for everyone to socialise. Great heating system, very warm throughout and plenty of hot water whenever required. The park at the nearby reservoir was excellent for the children. We would definitely recommend and return, thanks for a great holiday!
December 2012
The accommodation is spacious with plenty of rom for all the family ( and the odd stray chicken) . We had a lovely holiday 4 kids and 6 adults
May 2012
We arrived to a very warm welcome by the owners, together with a box of chocolates and a bottle of wine. It was the perfect barn for our family of ten adults and a 2 year old. Comfortable seating for all and the open plan aspect meant we were all together - whether it was watching tv, cooking, playing games or just snoozing and there was plenty of space for our 'little one' to play. The location was lovely too with the pub just down the road. We would certainly recommend The Rindle and we may even be back again next year. Thank You!
November 2010
One of the best things we found was that the kitchen and lounge areas were all one, this meant those that were preparing food were not on their own. Good location for walkers with fine views of the Rindle
August 2011
Nice welcoming touches of a bottle of wine and chocalates. Nice rooms clean and to a high standard. Fantastic pub in the village which is only a couple of mins walk. Lots of space and if any problems the owners are on site to help. It would have been nice if the grass in front of the house had of been cut so that the kids could have had a game of cricket or football.
December 2009
13 of us stayed in this fantastic barn converstion! Fantastic location very close to Tittesworth Dam for a walk/run. The bedrooms were all roomy and fab and plenty of bathrooms! We also had a lovely walk up to the Roaches and lucky for us the weather was glorious in October! Mrs Reaney was very friendly and showed us round - bottles of wine and the chocolates were a nice welcome touch. Loung/living area was lovely and we made use of the real fire and logs supplied. Only suggestion I would make is to have a signpost on entrance. I would definately recommend this and hopefully will be back one day! Keep up the good work.
June 2010
The house was beautiful, clean and modern inside. Perfectly located, very quiet and safe for the children.

We rented The Rindle along with the other 2 barns at the same location for my 40th birthday weekend and everyone was thrilled with them. Very high quality accomodation in a fantastic location. The open plan living area was perfect for a big get-together, and all three barns were really well equipped. Can't recommend these barns highly enough - all my friends were asking for the details with a view to returning wth family or friends. The owner was lovely and there's the added bonus of a great pub just a few minutes walk away (The Lazy Trout).
