    This was a return visit for us, we adore this property. Bluebird cottage itself is well equipped with everything you need and is well presented throughout. It has a large kitchen diner that leads on to a nice sitting room with TV and DVD player. There is then a door out to the secure walled garden that is shared with thy holiday cottage next door. The garden is huge. Upstairs there is a very big master bedroom, a twin and a nice bath room. The cottage is great and is situated on the yard of the farm. There are goats, horses, donkies, sheep, farm dogs and a cat. Our children adore them all and love feeding and stroking them, my son cried when we left. The owners are the best we have had when staying in cottages. They make you so welcome. They answered the thousands of questions my son had about every aspect on the farm and genuinely enjoy having guests. In summary the cottage is great but the holiday is made by the people and the animals. We will definitely be back next year

Parwich is a lovely old village surrounded by verdant green countryside, boasting a delightful country pub set on the village green, a church, a village hall, a playground and many pretty cottages. With an air of peace and tranquillity, Parwich dates from Saxon times, although at nearby Roystone Grange the remains of a Roman farm have been discovered. The nearby Manifold River cuts a course through superb scenery and is a delight for both walkers and cyclists, with the 'Manifold Trail' following the route of the old Leek to Manifold Light Railway. Nearby are the pretty village of Ilam, the award-winning village of Alstonefield and Brassington, while golf, horse riding, cycling and sailing are all available within seven miles. Enjoy a day out at Alton Towers or visit the impressive Chatsworth House and Kedleston and Sudbury Halls, all within 10 miles.
