  • "Fantastic house, has everything you will need and all the rooms are just beautiful."

    Reviewed by Julie5.0Oct 2023

  • "The house is magnificent, extremely well equipped and appointed to a very high standard with remarkable attention to detail."

    It's location, just 5 minutes drive to shops, restaurants and pubs but half a mile down a farm track makes it convenient yet quiet and peaceful, and it's very accessible to the local attractions. We had no issues at all, but did need to contact the owner and we received an immediate and helpful response; I'm confident in the unlikely event of a problem it would be resolved immediately. Highly recommended. Many thanks to Sarah & Nic, we had a lovely week.

  • "This is our second time at the property and the owners could not have been more helpful."

    We chose to eat in a lot of the time and the layout of the property, particularly the kitchen/dining room, allows you to do this with comfort. It is a good location which allows you to reach most local attractions within a short time. We had a great time.

  • "The most amazing house!"

    Cannot fault a single thing, it felt like a luxury 5 star resort. Spotlessly clean, beautiful interior design, perfect blend of modern and character property, stunning garden and views, even the hot tub was high end. And a lovely touch having dressing gowns and slippers for everyone to use. We had the best girly pamper weekend, a local lady came to do treatments for all of us which was amazing (www.feelgoodhq.co.uk) the house was like our own private spa! I would highly recommend and I can’t wait to come back again.

  • "This property exceeded our expectations."

    It is a stunning, luxury holiday home in a beautiful and secluded location. Every detail had been thought of to ensure that we had a relaxing and enjoyable stay. The owners were responsive and easy to communicate with. We will not hesitate to recommend it to others and would be keen to stay again. The only minor change we would make would be to have a small fridge in the bar area but this is only a recommendation for future stays.

    The property was outstanding so homely and decorated to a very high standard. The hot tub was a big hit with all the grandchildren we couldn’t get them out. Also the platters which Sarah the owner delivered for my husband’s birthday were absolutely fabulous and went down well. Thank you Sarah This has to be one of our best family holidays and will definitely recommend for a large family gathering every one is already asking if we can return for my 60th later in the year

  • "Everything about the property was stunning."

    There for my nieces 40th,age range from 3-93. Lots of areas for people to socialise or read a book. Loved all the beautiful stained glass windows and super hot tub. Great bar area for making cocktails,glasses and cocktail shakers provided. Would recommend The Holly Bush in Makeney,20 minutes walk away,and The Spotted Cow at Holbrook. A visitors file would be a good addition.Also a bigger fridge for 12 people,and for a large house the hanging space and drawers were very limited. Amazing week which we will never forget.Hope to visit again.

    We had a group of 12 friends and the house was prefect for our weekend stay. We enjoyed local walks to Holbrook and Belper, local pubs etc. Facilities are excellent both internally and externally. Hot tub a great point and imagine the summer house would be great in the warmer weather especially for families. The Christmas trees and decor were a lovely touch. Communication from / with the owners was excellent.

    The owners have clearly put a lot of time and effort into it and they are absolutely lovely to deal with. They are super friendly and helpful. The towns nearby are lovely with friendly people too and there’s lots of walks making it the perfect countryside stay. I had a big groups of friends for the first few days then my family and it was perfect for both. Just cannot recommend the place enough.

  • "What a wonderful, and homely feel this cottage has."

    Well equipped, very comfortable beds, lots of space inside and out. Lots of little touches that made our stay special. Road to the cottage is quite rough so needed to take it steady, but worth it when you get there. Good quality furnishings throughout which made the cottage feel ‘loved’. I would definitely recommend this cottage to others.

    We walked in and it was like Christmas day we got goose bumps. I real treat for a group of Mums celebrating a 50th Birthday, so relaxing and comfortable. The host thought of everything. None of us wanted to go home. Highly recommend the most gorgeous rental I have ever seen.

  • "Another excellent stay."

    Facilities, decor, furnishings, equipment and attention to detail are superb. Only criticisms, and these aren't really a big deal are as follows: (all on second floor) In wet room the shower is very stiff to turn on and soaks the floor beyond the shower stall unless it's only a weak spray. Also in that bathroom the toilet lid crashes back once you get up from the toilet. Not really a big deal but noisy at night. In super king room I wonder whether it might be possible to put a blind or something on the window that's uncovered?

Good communication with Sarah before we arrived and lots of little personal touches, especially for the little grandchildren (the 2.5yr old particularly liked the snowman bushes).

    The house itself is simply stunning and the outdoor space is also fantastic. The welcome basket and birthday balloon was a lovely added touch. My only snag is the track leading to the house was very unforgiving on my low profile sports car/tyres, however my families 4x4s didn’t have a problem. Otherwise a fantastic staycation at a stunning property and no doubt we shall return at some point in the future.

Three generations came together and resided harmoniously for a whole week! Lots of added little extras made our stay extra special! We’ll definitely return.

  • "We booked Wildersley Farm for a family celebration and cannot recommend it highly enough."

    The property description although accurate, does not do it justice. We were met at the property by the owner and as we stepped inside it immediately felt like ‘home’ and it’s fair to say it made me emotional! Wildersley has been lovingly renovated to the highest specification, but it’s hard the describe how amazing it is. The family areas (inside and out) are perfect for spending time together and making memories, but the layout of the bedrooms and bathrooms ensures that everyone can have space and privacy if/when they want it. The weather was unexpectedly good and we were able to take full advantage of the hot tub and outdoor areas which again were equipped with the highest quality furniture. We cannot thank Sarah enough, the thoughtful touches which just added to the experience and we have made memories that will stay with us forever. We can’t wait to revisit Wildersley Farm and that speaks volumes.

The property

The ultimate remote hideaway resting in an extremely desirable position in Derbyshire, The Farm House can be found settled on the outskirts of Belper, in easy reach of the Peak District National Park as well as Matlock, Derby and Nottingham too.

A spectacular, detached stone-built cottage, surrounded by spectacular countryside views, there's surely no better choice for a rural escape with your loved ones.

Marvel at the impressive exterior of the property, soaking in the peace and quiet, before stepping inside to the excitement of the inviting open-plan living space.

The property exudes character throughout, with exposed stone walls, original beams and a contemporary twist in its decor, this theme being evidenced in the spectacular sociable space before you; gather all together around the impressive dining table as the warmth of the woodburning stove fills the room, the chef of the group making the most of the high-quality appliances at hand, the breakfast bar making the perfect spot for little helpers too.

Gather around the warmth of the stove in a smaller group, or carry your conversations through to the sitting room where a second woodburning stove awaits you amidst its luxe furnishings.

Take the stairs from the snug, moving past the convenient ground-floor shower room where you can hose off after a relaxing soak in the hot tub beneath the stars, and be greeted by four of the beautiful bedrooms; take your pick from a super-king-size with an en-suite bathroom, a king-size, a double with an en-suite shower room and a twin with zip/link functions being a double on request, all being served by the glamourous family bathroom where you can choose from a dip in the freestanding bath or a soothing shower in the large walk-in enclosure.

Moving up to the second floor you will find the final two bedrooms made up of a super-king-size also with convenient zip/link functions to be a twin on request and a double with a freestanding bath in the room making a lovely escape for couples seeking a spot away from the excitement of the group, with an impressive wet room resting up here too.

Each room boasts its own lavish interior, offering guests only the best on their luxurious retreat, accompanied by ample storage space for all of your personal belongings too.

Outside the wonder only continues; get together around the sunken fire pit and while away the hours exchanging stories of your favourite holiday moments so far before sinking into the warm waters of the hot tub.

If you can tear yourself away from this beautiful base, be sure to explore the local historic town of Belper, holding a charming atmosphere at any time of year, it provides all you could need for a welcome self-catered stay, with a wide selection of shops where you can pick up any ingredients for a hearty breakfast, as well as eateries aplenty for those special occasions including pubs, restaurants and cafés to take your pick from, or pack up a picnic and take a stroll amongst the scenic River Derwent for a leisurely day with your loved ones, the beautiful Memorial Gardens and Belper Parks Local Nature Reserve being well-worth exploring too.

Visit the wonder of the Strutt's North Mill Museum, one of the Derwent Valley Mills, given UNESCO World Heritage Status for a fantastic historic experience, with Long Row and the River Gardens being a must-see too, or spend an hour or two in the cinema, with plenty of shops to explore after too.

The property also benefits from offering good road links to the surrounding areas, so a trip to the Peak District town of Matlock is easy where you will find the enticing Peak District Mining Museum, Gulliver's Kingdom theme park perfect for the little ones, Matlock Bath Aquarium and Exhibitions, and of course it's beautiful gorge, the best views available from one of the town's cable cars for a day out with a difference, you can get to Matlock and also Newark using Belper train station.

Venture into the city of Nottingham to discover spectacular architecture, rich culture and a bustling nightlife, while the excitement of Derby can be found just a scenic drive away too.

In easy reach of the Peak District National Park as well for all matters of adventure, The Farm House is a truly special property for your family escape to rural Derbyshire.
