About Linda and Keith Scowcroft

Chinley Moor House has been part of our family for a long time. Linda was born and grew up here, and we bought the house from Linda's parents after the birth of our first son, to bring up our own family in. Our two sons are now grown up and, since our retirement, we've turned our attention to making our home pay its way! We live here with our dog, Danny, and enjoy regular visits from our young grandson.

Linda and Keith Scowcroft purchased this apartment in 1950

Cosy, cottage-style studio apartment with lovely countryside views, pet friendly
average rating of 4.84 based on 25 reviews

Well maintained nicely appointed small studio above 2 car garage in great area

  • 3 of 5

We've stayed in seven weekly cottages on this UK trip and similarly over there last four years (7-8 weekly rentals average) in various locations throughout the UK, Ireland and Italy. The prices varied minimally among all of them with any number less costly, but this one, well equipped as it is, feels deceptively (from the photos) smaller than imagined. We'd anticipating more of a large room cottage for the tariff, especially factoring what we have so often and consistently experienced within or below the given economics.

We've never stayed in anything approaching so confined a living space. The measurements (as in walking about) come to approximately 12 by 14 feet, as an unseen double garage in front takes up the whole lower level, leaving a climb to a particularly pinched pitched roof studio above.

This apartment is more suitable for a weekend as we determine it, far less so a mildly claustrophobic week, factoring road noises as well. Between two to four other cars were parked outside, yet oddly not one person was in sight but for that initial one of our total seven days. We'd knocked and looked in for advice/help next door (which the owners suggested upon meeting) over a few different days, but gave up, seeing nobody again over our entire stay.

It's the single "cottage" we've experienced since 2013 which left us with a less than positive feeling in terms of value and expectations both immediately and afterwards. Being smartly decored including a singular window's lovely view, with a handily accessible location, and a positive initial greeting by landlady got our rating up to middling. Dogs are allowed for those so inclined.

Owner's Response: Dear Bernard We are so very sorry that you didn't enjoy your holiday in our studio as we do try very hard to make our guests welcome and comfortable. We are usually around for our guests but due to a planned short break(which we informed you of prior to your stay) and then a family emergency and illness we were as you say away for most of your stay.I must however point out that we left you our mobile number and a local number of our relative who would have come out to you immediately if needed.Unlike most cottage owners we are lucky to live next to our studio and barn and are usually around. The size of the studio is clearly stated in our advert and this is the first time we have had such a negative review in 8 years and many guests have returned for up to 4 times. We are however very upset that your holiday did not meet your expectations. Kind regards Linda

Tranquility at its best

  • 4 of 5

The little studio apartment was comfortable, modern and clean, in a beautiful part of the Peak Distrct, where you can walk straight from the front door. We really enjoyed our stay and luckily the weather was on our side. Our hosts were very welcoming and left some delicious cakes and a few items to start our stay.

If we were to come to the area again, we would not hesitate to contact them.

From the time we arrived our hosts Linda & Keith were so hospitable toward us. The studio was home from home it had everything you needed and more. All the little food & drink extras were a bonus.

As good as it gets!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely little studio was perfect for the 5 day break I took in April. It was warm and cozy, just what I needed for me and my dog.

Alfred and Linda were really welcoming, with lots of treats for me and dog as well as milk, bread, cereal etc and even some dog biscuits! After initially showing me around, and giving me some information about the area, I was left alone for the week although both were next door when I needed to ask a quick question.

The studio has excellent internet connectivity, a TV/ DVD system, a good oven / cooker / fridge / microwave which meant that I could easily prepare meals quickly and without fuss. This was important given that it rained pretty much every day and it was easier to cook at home after a day of walking than it would have been to shower, change and walk to (one of the numerous) dog-friendly pubs in the area. The bed is very comfortable, the sofa is perfect for lounging on and the shower is excellent.

Parking is easy, there are lots of easy-to-access public footpaths and most of all, it is dog friendly!

All in all, I'm very happy with my stay and would recommend it to anyone wanting a break in the High Peaks!

Perfect location, well equipped and cosy cottage for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Linda and Keith were very welcoming and helpful. The cottage is well equipped and a great location to spend time back with nature. If you don’t want to step foot in the car there is no need to here. The cottage is lovely and warm and meals cook amazingly quick in the gas oven! There are plenty of places to eat around although we cooked and prepared all our meals in the cottage.

I am certain this won’t be the last time we see Linda and Keith!

Car: recommended

We're situated close to the picturesque village of Hayfield with its cosy pubs, winding streets and scenic views - and with plenty of potential for walking, fell running, mountain biking, horse riding and rock climbing in the rolling hills and beautiful countryside right on our doorstep, we're in the perfect spot for outdoor enthusiasts.

The larger towns of Manchester and Sheffield are within easy reach, so you won't run out of things to see and do, even on rainy days.

If you're looking for beautiful scenery, historic homes, or delicious afternoon teas, nearby Lyme Park, Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Castleton, or Edale are ideal day trips, as is the lovely spa town of Buxton.
