  • "A lovely cottage in a great area."

    We had everything we needed. It was very easy to get to lots of great locations nearby for walking, sightseeing and shopping. The resident peacock was a welcome visitor . A really good base to enjoy the beautiful Peak District .

  • "When I arrived Sue let me in showed me where the thermostat was by the time I'd put my bag down she'd disappeared I saw Phil a few times but he never acknowledged me at all so much for the hospitality some reviews have mentioned, I was on my own as the person I was going with let me down at the last moment and I had no transport so I had to rely on taxis and as I'm in my seventies I would have appreciated it if they had checked in to see if I was okay."

  • "Beautiful cottage, very clean, all necessary facilities, well equipped."

    We would have preferred to have known before hand that it was located on a busy main road, as this made it a little precarious to cross and we would have preferred a quieter setting. However the actual property was fantastic

  • "A really lovely cottage."

    Well equipped, warm and very comfortable. In a great position for walking the dales. The web site doesn’t do it justice, as there are no pictures of the beautiful up dated bathroom, or details of the excellent Wi-Fi. Could do with a new set of matching cutlery, and cooking knives need a good sharpen, minor issues really. Loved meeting the peacock who stood at our back door each morning and evening.

  • "Booked a two night weekend stay at No 3, we stayed as a party of four adults for weekend visit to Chatworth House Christmas."

    No 3 didn’t disappoint from the moment we arrived the lovely lady greeted us gave us information what we needed and left us to it, the barn cottage conversion was very spacious with two large bedrooms, the beds was very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped with all your kitchen needs, the lounge had two settees and TV, the bathroom was very nice with a massive shower and very modern. All in all No 3 is a perfect base and will definitely be returning again when in Derbyshire again.

    Situated in the centre of Derbyshire and close to all amenities. Your website details for this property need updating to include the superb walk-in shower and wi-fi which makes it even more attractive.

  • "Nice barn conversion in the courtyard of the owners farm."

    Everything you need for a week away was provided in the property, really comfy beds and quiet due to the thick stone walls. There are chickens, donkeys, sheep and a pheasant on the farm and regular tractor movements too. Good road links to the main attractions and walking areas.

  • "The owner was really friendly, and the house very comfortable, with all the facilities you'd want."

    Other reviews mention the peacock, but this was the only negative for us as it started screeching each morning at sunrise, so no relaxing long sleeps (and it doesn't even belong to this farm). Some of the photos of the house are out of date, the sofas are now nice black leather and the bath and shower cabinet have gone, replaced by a much nicer big walk-in shower.

    On the main road from Buxton to Ashbourne but road noise not a problem. You can walk out from the property, ( a short distance on the road at first) onto the Tissington and High Peak Trails, but you really need a car to access the many interesting trails and places around as there is no public transport nearby.

    It has everything you could want, including tea, coffee, sugar, washing up liquid, dish washer tabs, soap etc which some cottages dont supply. It was quiet and comfortable and a great location to explore the Peaks. The only slight issue was there's no doors to the bedrooms, so if you have a snorer in your party everyone can hear

    Very friendly owners and we very much appreciated the milk/coffee/biscuits provided on arrival. We enjoyed the weekend there, in particular the walk/cycling along the Tissington/High peak trails. We will come back again for sure. Anything not so perfect? If I were really picky, I would say the toilet could be separated from the bath room/or having another toilet, and may be not on the main road.
