  • "Absolutely superb stay!"

    Karl and his "crew" have an absolute gem and are excellent in everything you can think of in your stay. Christine and I had a 3-night break and it was total rest and relaxation. The accommodation is top notch, facilities second to none and the hot tub was the highlight...a total indulgence! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and really enjoyed talking to Karl as we were leaving...a nice touch, as he asked if anything could be added or we had any ideas on improvements. We would definitely recommend the break and the site for a relaxing getaway from the stresses of everyday life and look forward to our next visit! Keep up the good work Karl 'n' the Gang...5*****

  • "Wonderful place to stay."

    This was our first break away for 5 years and booked this cottage on the strength of its recommendations and reviews. They were not wrong. Hot tub was lovely, clean and well maintained. Kitchen area was spotless as well as the bathroom. We didn't have any plans made about what to see and do however the folder left in the cottage gave us a few pointers and off we went. Local pubs were great and we would recommend 'The Shoulder of Mutton' as a great place for food. For visiting places Ashbourne was a nice town and make sure you visit Chatsworth House and Kedleston Hall. Not to mention Alton towers. Top notch service and support by Karl and Pip - thanks to you both. We hope to see you again soon.

    Michael, Your feedback is so very much appreciated. I’m so pleased your much needed holiday was with us! Regards, Karl Property Owner

    We were met by Karl upon arrival, who was very welcoming and showed us around. The property is really nice and modern with everything you could want, the Hot hub was fantastic, clean, and relaxing. It was checked twice a day by Karl. We took our bikes and Karl kindly lent us a bike lock as well to secure the bikes. We had some amazing food during our stay at nearby Ashbourne, at the George and Dragon, Greenman, and Bowling Green, all can be recommended. Overall a great place to stay, recommended!

    We really enjoyed having you and well done for getting out on your bikes. With several repurposed railway lines close by, there’s so much flat, safe riding. Thanks also for the feedback; new, bigger awning fitted to provide cover over the tub! Property Owner

    Karl, the owner has gone above and beyond to provide everything you would need for a relaxing week away. We were out walking/cycling most days and on returning to the Den the Hot Tub was an added bonus to relieve our aches and pains from so much exercise. Karl met us on the day we arrived and went through how to use everything, we even had a bottle of Prosseco that was chilling, ready for us. The only minor negative point is we didn't find the sofa particularly comfortable for 2 people to sit on, but would still give this property 10 out of 10 as everything else was perfect. Thank you Karl for making our week away perfect!

Also I did not find a large sweeping brush to be able to sweep up as I would usually do. The Den is perfect for a short break.

    The property had everything we needed and very well stocked; upon arrival we met with the friendly host Carl of whom showed us around the property and ensured we had full knowledge of the utilities and how they should be used. Also provided was a complimentary bottle of prosecco which was enjoyed whilst we spent our evening in the hot tub and a small pint of milk. The property was very clean, nice and warm, which was a bonus due to the cold weather at the time. The bed was comfortable and a very decent size, which ensured we were able to have a lovely night sleep, the only downfall being the noise coming from the pipes in the bedroom which had a trio of tones during random times of the night and at times quite disturbing; however this can easily be amended . Overall we have had a lovely weekend and would definitely return to the property.

Bank Top Farm Cottages

Perched within idyllic countryside and boasting tranquil views of rural nature and the Derbyshire Dales, are three stylish and contemporary holiday cottages. The Bank Top Farm cottages are joined together on a single-storey level and each property has their own private decking and private hot tub as well as benefiting from shared access to a quaint outdoor seating area where groups of friends or a family can join together to socialise. For local amenities, head into the nearby village of Rocester and pick up the essentials, alternatively, the lovely market town of Ashbourne, waiting to be explored with its wonderful selection of eateries, independent shops, and the start of the Tissington Trail, the city of Derby, where all the major chains are represented, can be reached in half an hour. For the adrenaline junkies, you can look forward to spending the day at Alton Towers, boasting many thrilling rides including, Runaway Mine Train, Nemesis, Oblivion, Galactica, The Smiler, and Wicker Man; or visit the whimsical play area at the waterpark to enjoy the tropical lagoon, promising family fun all year around. If you want to take things more slowly, why not head to Denstone Farm Shop and Cafe for something scrumptious, before an easy stroll along the repurposed and picturesque Churnet Valley Railway. However, keener walkers can look forward to exploring the Limestone Way, which leads to Matlock or travel to the National Park to explore the delights of Dovedale Stepping Stones, Ilam Park and Thor's Cave.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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.
