we stayed at the cottage in may 2013. Was a great quite location. The views from the back are stunning. Rob and his wife jo were very helpful. You need a car to get around but the cottage is only a few minutes from busy Hillsborough the tram and all the shops. Great rooms and very cosy beats staying in a hotel. All the facilities of home.
My partner and I stayed in Blackberry Cottage for three nights as part of a Peak District vacation; I remained a few more nights to attend a conference in Sheffield. We had a wonderful experience staying in this clean, beautifully renovated, and well-equipped cottage. Rob was lovely to work with in setting up our stay and very kindly refunded us some of our tariff when some work had to be done in the house during our stay.
This cottage is beautifully situated on a quiet country lane and looks out over the Rivelin Valley. The Rivelin itself has great walking paths and can be reached by walking down one of the nearby footpaths. There's a Cooperative Food store up the hill in the nearby suburb of Stannington, about a twenty-minute walk away.
Transit connections in the area aren't great, so a car is recommended; however, we did take a local bus to and from Peveril Castle from the bus stop on the Manchester Road.
If you would like to see the Peak District or visit Sheffield, I highly recommend Blackberry Cottage.
P.S. If you are tall, watch your head while in the kitchen and pantry. :)
