cosy & comfortable
The cottage was cosy & comfortable. The owner was there to greet us upon our arrival & gave us a detailed tour as to where to find everything & also outlined the nearby places to visit. This cottage is central to the high peaks & the local pub the Miners Arms serve lovely meals & is dog friendly. We were made to feel welcome by the locals & we will definitely be returning in the future
Thank you for your kind comments. We will be very pleased to welcome you back.
The cottage was excellent we had nothing to provide . Everything you need for a comfortable stay .

The eating experience was excellent with so many pubs and restaurants to choose from.We never had one bad meal.recomendation take a bag of hot chips and relax by the river in Bakewell,simple but nice. Thanks
Thank you for your comments. We agree, the cottage is centrally located in the Peak District National Park and there are many great reasonably priced attractions and eating experiences either within walking distance or a short car journey away. We would be very pleased to accommodate your friends in the future.
Great location, well equipped but no wifi
Right in the centre of the village, the cottage was well equipped. I would say it was quite compact and 4 adults might find it a bit small. Two adults and 2 children would probably be fine though. The owners have thought of pretty much everything. There was a bottle of wine and some milk and biscuits left for us which was a very nice touch. The decor was quite dated and a bit dark downstairs but that is personal taste so I wouldn't mark it down for that. The bed was very comfortable and there was a choice of lightweight and warmer weight duvets. There was a TV in every room. The kitchen equipment was quite old but it all worked perfectly well. The downstairs bathroom might put some people off. It had a whirlpool bath and a shower.
The village is lovely, with 2 tearooms, one of which sells fresh bread and cakes, etc; a dog-friendly pub selling very nice food, a village shop and a shop a little further out that had fresh veg. There is a Jacobean Hall and gardens, the Eyam museum, the plague cottages and a craft centre selling local cheese, real ale and knick knacks, etc.
We went for the walking and it was very good right from the village. The village is well placed for visiting much of the Peak District. Buses run through the village throughout the day.
The only negative (a big one for us but may be a blessing for some) was that there was no phone signal and no wifi in the cottage. We use the internet for everything from maps to shopping to Googling places to visit, etc. The pub and tearooms had wifi so we went over there but it was a big negative for us. But a digital detox might be exactly what the next people want and be a positive selling point for them.
There is private parking opposite the house and a small grassy area which is up some steps and opposite the house too. If you take your dog you won't be able to let it out of the cottage alone as there isn't a fenced area.
But we had a great week in spite of the rain. The owners were lovely to deal with and very friendly and helpful.
Would we stay there again...? Yes, if there was wifi.
Thank you for your comments and the 4 stars. We appreciate our guests' views as it gives us a different perspective and something to work on if we can.
Mobile phone reception in the village is a little intermittant but the mobile companies have told us that they are doing work on the local mast which may (or may not) improve matters. We do however provide a landline in the cottage which takes free incoming calls and takes messages, so we advise our guests to pass the cottage landline number to friends or relatives who may need to contact them in an emergency.
We are considering WiFi but we need to determine if all our guests would appreciate this, as we would have to raise our price to cover it. In the meantime we have purchased a mobile WiFi unit which we can load with credit if our guests require it. This costs guests who require it £10 for 7 days.
Since this visit the kitchen in the cottage has been replaced with sophisticated solid oak shaker-style units and new appliances: Panasonic stainless steel microwave, Leisure integrated black washer dryer designed by Patricia Urquiola, AEG steambake electric oven, AEG electric induction hob, telescopic cooker hood, Bosch integrated dishwasher, stylish Italian 3 way tap (hot, cold and filtered water) and an Asterite granite Italian black sink set in a solid Apolo Magna coffee melange work surface.
Great cottage and great location
The cottage is a brilliant base for visiting this area of the Peaks. The village has a good pub to eat at and you are central to Chatsworth, Castleton, Lady Bower etc. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you could need for self catering. It is very clean and feels cared for by the owners. On arrival the owners had left tea coffee milk etc. The finishing touches make such a difference. And at the end of a long day walking the peaks you have a whirl pool bath to take your aches and pains away, and relax in front of an open fire.
Thank you for your kind comments. Much appreciated. Our overall aim is to strive to make your holiday experience as enjoyable as possible.
Typique cottage au coeur du Peak District
Cottage très confortable, très bien équipé et situé dans un charmant village baigné d'histoire. Le chemin de randonnée passe juste devant. Les propriétaires nous ont accueilli afin de nous expliquer le fonctionnement et les usages, ce qui est très appréciable. Idéal pour découvrir le Peak District.

Très belle location dans un lieu charmant
Lydgate cottage fut une très agréable découverte. Nous avons été très bien accueillies par Peter et Sandra qui ont pris le temps de tout nous expliquer. La maison est confortable et chaleureuse et se situe dans un lieu chargé d’histoire. Une location que nous recommandons sans hésitation.
