    Very well equipped with some lovely touches like fresh flowers and prosecco. Great base for Alton Towers but there's also a wealth of other activities in the area.

    There are great views from the outside seating area. The kitchen diner would be a bit small for 4 people and it’s a shame there is only an “ice box freezer” however in the summer the outside space would be lovely and the hot tub and bbq are excellent.

    Thanks for the tremendous score and kind feedback Lesley. With regards to the kitchen, in January, we are creating more food prep space, and installing a cabinet freezer, and a larder fridge. I’ll post pictures on our Facebook account as soon as the work is done! Do stay in touch, regards, Karl Property Owner

    The area is stunning and the perfect place to explore or just chill out as we did most of the time. Karl and the family have evidently put a lot of thought into providing for their guest’s creature comforts, and the attention to detail is greatly appreciated, we lacked for nothing. Heartily recommend this property.

  • "The Coach House proved the perfect base for a relaxing week."

    The facilities provided were excellent and all aspects were covered from strong wi-fi to a full wet room with disabled facilities and of course the hot tub to relax in. What was unexpected were many extras from the hosts, such as Prosecco, Flowers, Tea, Coffee and Milk. Our host met us on arrival and could not have been more attentive to any of our needs during our stay. The countryside views from our decking area and pure peacefulness of the location made it a great place to unwind at the end of the day. Not much more you could ask for and no parking issues.

    Hi Heather, Thanks for such kind words about your stay, which mean so much. We love hosting guests at Bank Top Farm, and I'm passionate about not only maintaining our cottages, but also improving them, so watch this space! Please stay in touch, Karl Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely relaxing stay at The Coach House with my elderly parents."

    It's in a beautiful location and very quiet. The owner Karl is really helpful without being intrusive. The beds are amazingly comfortable. The hot tub is a bonus although, beware: I hurt my back lifting the lid on and off on the first use - It's definitely a two person job and even then it's tricky due to the siting of the hot tub. The kitchen/dining room is very small but functional, with very little worktop space or user friendly cupboard space to store your groceries etc. Also, there is only a small fridge with a mini freezer compartment. but with several supermarkets 5 miles away we didn't need to buy too much in one go so we managed. Overall, we had such a nice relaxing time - just what we needed.

    Thanks for the feedback, Susan. Sorry to hear about you straining your back; it is a heavy lid so definitely a two-person job. I'm going to look into whether a bespoke lid-lifter can be made for the space available. Glad you had a nice relaxing time overall! Property Owner

The house itself is fitted out to a high standard and the garden enjoys some wonderful views even from the hot tub. Would definitely recommend this place for anyone wanting a peaceful, relaxing holiday or for a base to explore the surrounding areas. Thank you Karl. It was just what we needed

    This is an exemplary cottage with attention to detail and comfort. Our week started as soon as we arrived with Karl (owner) giving us the introduction, nice bottle of Prosecco on ice and flowers - one happy wife! Cleanliness is second to none, beds extremely comfortable also. Beautiful quiet location, with amazing views. We came up to Derbyshire to see family and it was never a problem to have them over at any time. Our (9yr old) daughter made full use of the hot tub, as did we when we could. BBQ was excellent addition and with beer in hand, looking out over the views, there was nothing like it. 2 other properties adjacent but never intrusive, and if we needed anything at all - Karl (and his wife) were attendant immediately. Even daughter Pip brought over the new welcome back. We have stayed in several holiday lets in the UK with other companies, but this stands out for all the right reasons. Thoroughly recommend at any time of year and we will back - thankyou Karl and family.

Countryside walks from the doorstep. So easy to find delightful scenery.

If you don't mind driving country lanes you'll find astonishing and surprising vistas within just a few miles. Karl and Pip supplied useful local info to assist us. Good to know they are on hand to ensure you have an enjoyable trouble-free time.

    How lucky were we to find this gem. From the picturesque surroundings, within easy reach of so many interesting places to visit, to the cosiest accommodation, finished to such a high standard, and with so many extra special touches. To the friendliest of welcomes, we felt at ease immediately. Well thought out even to accommodate two eighty year olds quite safely accompanied by two twenty year old grandchildren who were able to work efficiently from “home” with excellent Wi Fi connection. Intervals in the hot tub with shelter from the elements, but still incorporating such tranquil views was obviously an added bonus and with 24 hour 40 degree heating was wonderful after a days work. Lovely walking area. Owners have thought of everything for their guests comfort and we are looking at dates to come again. Thank you for a wonderful break. Maureen and Pete Ensor.

    How lucky we were. It’s new to Sykes cottages. The cottage is decorated beautiful. The kitchen is fully equipped with all you would need. We only slept in one room with there being only two of us. The bed was massive and very comfortable. The shower room is great. Not a powerful shower but adequate the floor gets quite wet but there is a squeegee mop to clean up. This project is all new to them and they love feed back to improve. The hot tub is wonderful. We went in every day about tea time and it was lovely to unwind after walking. Fantastic view from it. The heating is good. The TV is a smart tv so you can watch Netflix as a guest and all catch up on your sign in. The location of the cottage is good for driving to places. Pip has made a excellent picture board on the wall of nearby places to visit. We visited 3 of them and thoroughly enjoyed them. We did have a walk one evening and it’s easy to walk to a pub if you wanted to. Nearby is a Marks and Spencer food and an Aldi if you need to stock up. The owners live on site and couldn’t be more helpful. The cottage is peaceful and quiet and we couldn’t recommend it more. It’s wonderful.

About the location


Matlock 15.7 miles; Bakewell 16.6 miles; Chatsworth 20.4 miles.

Lying at the southern end of the Peak District, Ashbourne is a perfect example of an English market town - market place with stalls, eccentric street plan, narrow cobbled alleys, coaching inns and almshouses. In its heyday in the 18th-century, the town was a fashionable social centre, and many fine Georgian buildings remain from this period. Today the town still has much to offer in terms of restaurants and inns and is regarded as something of a haven for antique hunters - but don’t expect a bargain! For those who prefer more outdoor pursuits, the Dove and Manifold Valleys are close by and for thrill seekers Alton Towers with its exciting collecting of rides and attractions is just a short drive away.
