We booked this cottage having visited Hope some many many years ago. We were originally going to stay in Castleton but decided that Hope would better suit us as it's quieter. The cottage far exceeded our expectations and it's safe to say that the pictures truly do not do it justice, it is lovely inside. It has a fantastic utility room which is very roomy and warm so would be ideal for drying or storing wet gear, it's also fab for cleaning up the dog before she goes into the house! The kitchen is great, very well equipped with a full size freezer and everything you could need. Lovely lounge and dining area, cosy but perfectly adequate. Upstairs has a couple of bedrooms, size wise absolutely fine and a big bathroom. The garden is shared with the owners and their dog but its fully secure and they are a really helpful couple with Ellie the black lab often coming to say hello. We were left a welcome pack which was unexpected but very welcome, unusual to get this when going through a large company like Sykes but just another thoughtful touch from the owners. You can tell from the cleanliness and quality of this cottage that it's not just a holiday let but done with care and consideration. We spent a lot of time in the cottage which is unusual as we had a poorly dog and thank god we booked this cottage as it had wifi and was just down the road from the village with shops, pub and cafe. I have no hesitation recommending Brinks View and we will be returning as soon as we can.

We stayed here for 3 nights, we decided upon the cottage after having great difficulty finding dog friendly accommodation in nearby Castleton.
To our absolute pleasure we discovered a little gem. Andrew and Sarah have made an outstanding job of renovating this cottage to a very high standard. The attention to detail is exceptional, from the pre prepared log burner , to pizza utensils, and tissues in the bedrooms. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners.
The village has a couple of traditional dog friendly pubs, serving real ales and great food, we visited the Old Hall hotel, which was lovely. Hope is a less touristy , quieter village than Catleton, however, it offers an attractive alternative location for the likes of Lady Bower / Derwent water and for Mam Tor.
The dog had a fabulous and welcoming time.
Don't be seduced by Castleton, this place is absolutely lovely !
We will be returning
Had a fantastic holiday here last week.
Great location, great cottage, great owners. I would highly recommend this cottage to everybody.
The only bad point i can think of would be that we had to come home.
We will definitely stay here again :-)
Just got back from long weekend in this cottage. Andrew and Sarah are the perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel really welcome. The cottage is beautiful with everything you need to make your stay perfect. Thanks for making our stay one that we definitely want to repeat x
