Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Luxury??? Absolutely not
I understand this is countryside and ruatic. We also live in an old cottage. That is t an excuse to be dirty though. Just awful, and the owner was so rude. I think she forgot we were paying customers and paid £268 a night .

Everything we needed in this well equipped house. The owner was lovely contacting us when we had arrived to make sure all was ok. Ideal spot to explore local villages and great walks. Can't recommend highly enough.

Lovely cottage in an ideal location for accessing Dovedale, Ilam and Manifold trail. The inside of the cottage was spacious with large dinning table and sufficient sitting in the lounge. The arga kept the cottage warm particularly when returning from walks. There was an outdoor area next to the river which would have been lovely if we had visited in the summer. Good communication with Eleanor and the complimentary basket of goodies was appreciated. Would highly recommend Colourmill cottage as a base to explore the Peak District

A chance for our family to meet up, relax and have a great time. Lots of space to spread out, the bedrooms were clean and very comfortable however, the dining table was probably where we spent most of our time together. Quiet location and we loved the riverside space a couple of steps across the road. An easy place to keep clean with our two dogs as the only carpeted area was on the stairs.

It was a lovely cottage in a lovely location. Eleanor was very helpful. She brought kindling over to us when we realised we were out. There was also plenty of wood for us to burn on the Woodburner - fantastic in the cold weather. She also left a generous hamper of goodies.

We had a lovely time at Colourmill Cottage in Winkhill for a reunion catch up of 2 families with young children. A very relaxed, comfortable setting and easy to get around to all of the great places on offer in the Peak District.

A beautiful cottage from which to explore the Peak District. Eleanor was very helpful at all times by phone and text. Be careful of your head if you are very tall, our 6'2" son hit is head several times on low beams and doorways! We had a lovely time, thank you

Colourmill Cottage is a lovely cottage. We read the reviews and apart from one they were all good. The location is superb and when we drove onto the drive all looked good. I went in and my son, his wife and grandchildren had already arrived. They commented that it looked nice but it wasn’t very clean. I looked in the dishwasher which was full of greasy water. I cleaned the filter which was so greasy and also had broken glass in which I cut my thumb on. The kitchen generally was not very clean. The fridge isn’t quite big enough if you plan to do self catering. If any food gets near the back of the fridge it freezes. The sofa in the tv room looked scruffy. It also had dirt under the cushions. I took the rug outside to shake as that was also dirty. We did not use this room as the first impression put us off. The conservatory was also dirty. When Eleanor arrived I pointed out the problems and she said that she would come the following day to perform a deep clean. Even the vacuum cleaner provided was dirty. It was a lot better after the deep clean but it should have been like that to start. I can only think we were unlucky as most of the reviews are full of praise. Do not be put off by my review as the positives outweigh the negtives.
