  • "Lovely cottage, shame there's no WiFi, the large screen TV is a smart TV that could do so much more with WiFi."

    Could do with directions changing to say ' coming from Buxton, the property is 500 yards before the cafe. That or a larger sign.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at New Cottage Farm, it was spacious, comfortable, warm and very well equipped."

    A great base for visiting Buxton, Bakewell, Leek and beyond. Our only comment about maintenance would be that some of the windows may need resealing/replacing as the wind whistled through some nights. Otherwise fantastic stay and we all said we'd go there again.

  • "The views from the cottage are stunning, and the cottage itself is very well equipped, immaculately clean, and very comfortable."

    Even though the temperature dropped outside, inside we were cosy once we turned on the good central heating and got the log burner going, too. We wanted for nothing - would highly recommend this cottage as a base to explore the surrounding area. The owner was really helpful and communicated with us well in terms of collecting the key, etc, and we appreciated the chocolates and wine that had been kindly left for us to enjoy. Separately to the cottage, the listing is inaccurate as there is no longer a pub in walking distance. The owner said that Sykes has been informed of this but haven’t changed the listing. Although not essential, it was a deciding factor when we chose the cottage over another one, so we were disappointed to discover this.

  • "We had a very nice holiday in New Cottage Farm."

    It was comfortable and clean. Fantastic views. We had a few days of very wet and windy weather (which can only be expected in mid October in the Peaks), but the cottage stayed warm and cosy, especially with the log burner going. Not a big issue for us, but watch out for the uneven staircase, as the top step is bigger than the others and caught us by surprise a few times until we got used to it. Not unexpected, but Internet connectivity was very limited for us in the cottage, as there was no broadband wifi, and mobile data services had weak signal (at least on Three, O2 and Vodafone networks). If you wave your phone at the right window you can get enough data for email, messages, google maps and websites etc, which was all we needed :-) But don't expect to be able to stream video. Oh, and the fridge could do with a light in it, but that's hardly worth mentioning. ha ha. We had a very nice week in this charming little cottage. Recommended.

  • "We had a really lovely stay at this cosy cottage despite the weather wasn’t great."

    We enjoyed the amazing views from our windows and love the location that is easily accessible to many tourist attractions. We really like being able to get to Buxton within only 10 mins drive and went there a few of times for food and coffee on rainy days. The cottage has everything we need including many games to keep children entertained indoor. It is really warm even when the fireplace wasn’t on and has a separate dining space that we made good use of. The only thing we missed was a dishwasher but it wasn’t a huge issue. We thoroughly recommend the cottage to others.

  • "A lovely cottage and isolated, which is what we wanted."

    Fantastic views too! The cottage was a good size and mostly warm but when it was very windy it was slightly draughty in the living room. The settees in the living room were a bit uncomfortable too. The double bed however, was very comfortable and the bathroom was nice with a good shower. The biggest downside was no wi-fi, and a intermittent phone signal which made it difficult to book things from the cottage. We had to go outside to get a better signal which wasn’t an option in March!

  • "The cottage has been renovated throughout to a very high standard and was ideal for our needs."

    Fantastic views over open fields to the east and an old stone cow shed next to the cottage gave inspiration for a bit of holiday painting and sketching. We appreciated the closeness to Buxton which had a lot to occupy a nearly three-year-old toddler (especially the ride-on train, extensive play areas and boating lake in the Pavilion Gardens and ready availability of ice-cream!) as well as grown-ups. We coped without wifi in the cottage (that can be a blessing!) but a reasonable 4G signal meant grandad didn't miss the Champions League final!

  • "New Cottage Farm is a well-equipped, comfortable and attractive place."

    For those wanting a great base from which to explore the area (including an excellent walk around Three Shires Head) and to visit the locality, it is pretty much perfect. The local Cafe/Shop is fantastic and safe too. It really is a five-minute stroll from the front door. Sadly, the pub had not opened yet, which is understandable. Following lockdown and reports of local viral spikes around the UK, we didn't plan to go anywhere but walking from the house. The area is so lovely, a week wasn't long enough. My family and I (2 adults and twin 12 year old girls) didn't want to leave. Even the view from the front of the cottage is stunning. We saw buzzards, stacks of butterflies and even a stoat. The weather is very unpredictable at the peak of the Peak District, and we got our fair share of the wet stuff, but that view never disappointed. The cottage is tidy and it's clear the owners want people to return. The owners are friendly and attentive. We'll be back although...whilst advertised in an "isolated position" it is only a driveway's length from the main artery into Buxton. Those expecting total solitude and isolation could be disappointed. You can hear the road from the cottage, but it's generally imperceptible once inside, and the overall experience is one of peace and calm. We loved it.

  • "We have just returned from an absolutely lovely week away at the peak district, The cottage was just near the village of a flash, which is a Tiny little Village, and boasts being the Highest Village in England, the views from the cottage are breathtaking, the cottage itself was cleaned and prepared to a high standard, and there was all the little holiday essentials that you could need, I."

    E fuel , wood etc for the fire, washing up liquid, Tea towels, Bath towels that sort thing, and the cottage is so cosy and warm and each window has different beautiful view, which we will miss very much, We even had the pleasure of meeting the owner, who came to see us to make sure we were settling in and he told us about the history of the place, which was very interesting. The cottage is a about a 15 min drive to the lovely charming town of Buxton, where you are sure to find somewhere nice to eat as there are lots of pubs and cafes, and also the pavilion, which boast a little river running through, and 2 good size parks for little ones and older children. We were struck by just how friendly people are, not just in Buxton, but Generally everywhere we went. The weather especially in the village can vary as you are situated around 1518 high so it's kind of like being on a mountain, but we were so lucky to enjoy such lovely weather all except one day when it rained, but that was part of the fun. I recommend you bring your walking shoes/ boots as there are so many beautiful walks and hills, which are all unique but some walks can be a challenge, and if you have very young children, a child back carrier is a must as some of the Amazing walks we did were absolutely not suitable for a pushchair, but if you dont fancy challenging walks, then their is lots of Gorgeous towns to visit and so much to do for everyone. We cant wait to come back again this year as there is still lots of things we would like to do and lots more places we would like to visit. Derbyshire is a wonderful place and extremely beautiful, we have made the most wonderful memories here.

    However I would like to mention the breakneck stairs ?! The cottage is a new development within an old "shell" so that the outside looks like and old pair of Two up two down cottages. However inside this has been transformed into a three bedroom cottage. Therefore I thought it a same that stone stairs which had been created were very steep and irregular in height. Both myself and my pension age parents found them a struggle. Next year I will pay more attention to the description of the stairs !

The only problem was with the directions to find it. The postcode took us past the cottage, and down a turning.

About the location


Tideswell 7 miles; Bakewell 12 miles; Matlock 21 miles.

It was the constant 28 degrees centigrade of the bubbling blue waters of Buxton's eight thermal springs that originally attracted the Romans to the town. However it was during the 18th and 19th centuries, under the patronage of successive Dukes of Devonshire, that the Palladian splendour of the Buxton of today was designed and built - including the magnificent semi-circular Crescent, The Great Stable, Hall Bank, The Square, The Pavilion Gardens and The Opera House. Today visitors continue to enjoy these magnificent buildings and gardens, as well as the Opera House's full programme and annual festivals of music and arts. There is good walking close by with rugged peaks to the north and gentle hills and dales to the south and a number of pretty towns and villages are dotted throughout including Bakewell, Ashford-in-the-Water, Castleton and Edale. The stunning properties of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are within easy driving distance and must be seen while visiting this area. A great base for exploring the Peak District.
