  • "We absolutely loved our stay at the very beautiful Churn Dale Cottage, Spotlessly clean, very well equipped, the hosts were kind and friendly and had great communication for any questions we asked."

    Hot tub was a wonderful touch and was a luxurious extra. Would definitely go back and recommend highly to others.

  • "The cottage is well appointed and lovely and clean."

    Dawn the owner has thought of everything you might need to enjoy a relaxing stay. We went out during the days and cooked at home and played the board games provided during the evenings. Truly a warm and cosy home away from home. Just perfect. The hot tub is also excellent, just what we needed. Overall a great base location to explore the surrounding area in clean and well maintained comfort.

    Thank you for your lovely comments We're pleased you had a great stay Property Owner

  • "The photographs don’t do Churndash cottage justice, it’s stunning."

    The beds are so comfy and the whole place was so dark at night that we slept better than we have done for months! Dawn has thought of everything you might need in the kitchen when cooking. The shower was lovely, powerful and instantly hot. The hot tub was the icing on the cake, perfect to sink into. The weather meant we couldn’t make the most of the garden or bar sadly but all looked lovely xx

  • "We had a lovely relaxing holiday at Churn Dash, wonderful cosy cottage, warm, clean and very well equipped."

    The only thing i would say is that a mirror is needed near a plug or a plug near a mirror in main bedroom for drying your hair in but apart from that the cottage is lovely. The hot tub was a added bonus for us too, great place to relax. Dawn, the owner is a wonderful, friendly host and very kindly helped us when needed. Was lovely to see the Ponys too! Thankyou very much for our stay, from the 4 generations of girlys from E. Yorkshire.

    From chilled filtered water on tap with an ice machine to an amazing hot tub and bar in the garden. It is set in a quiet location and my children loved the horses and sheep on the farm. Beautiful walks all around the property made sure we got our steps done in the evening! I would highly recommend this property.

  • "Dawn & Adam have created a very special holiday let on their farm."

    It is equipped and decorated to a very high standard and most importantly we found Churn Dash Cottage to be spotlessly clean. We had a fantastic, very comfortable relaxing week and enjoyed daily use of the hot tub. ( Owners were fastidious in checking pH levels daily but in no way intrusive). Thanks again for a lovely week.

    The owner had thought about what people might need and provided it. It's rare when stopping in cottages that there is this attention to detail, it is very thoughtful.

  • "We had a lovely stay at the Churn Dash Cottage."

    We had a last minute booking change and the owner was so kind to accommodate us. My husband and I stayed for 5 nights. The property was large, very clean, warm, and had everything we needed. The owner went above and beyond to help us with anything we needed including a special request. Property is newly renovated, nice and quiet, perfect for a relaxing getaway. The hot tub was enjoyable on a chilly night. WiFi was fast and enjoyed being able to log into Netflix on TV. We were quite pleased with our stay and we hope to be back soon.

  • "We had a perfect week at churn dash cottage."

    It is very clean and beautifully decorated. Hot tub was always clean and was perfect for the end of the day to relax. Only thing I would say is if your taking kids another tv would be ideal for an evening. Apart from that it was absolutely perfect, didn't want to leave! Shops and everything you need is a 10 minute drive. So quiet on the farm also was very relaxing, just what you need for a week/weekend away.

  • "This property was beautiful."

    It was clean and tidy and had everything needed for a comfortable stay. BEWARE!! We booked it specifically for the hot tub and it's privacy. The hot tub was amazing but we only got it for 2 nights out of our 3 night stay!!!! We were told to stop using it after 6pm on the last night so it could be cleaned down the next occupants. This was not made clear in the listing and if it had been, we would definitely NOT have booked it. We felt forced to go out on the last night so they could access the property to clean, empty and refill the hot tub for the next guests (who by-the-way didn't arrive until 3pm the following day!!!) When we came back it was still being refilled for several hours so we closed the curtains and sat watching TV in the cottage on our last night in stead of getting the last use of the hot tub. This was not what we paid for. We paid to have use of the hot tub for 3 nights and this totally spoiled the holiday, we were not impressed. Our Son was particularly disappointed because this cottage was his choice specifially for the use of the hot tub . I can't believe they did this and get away with it, we felt like we were an inconvience to them. You wouldn't do this is any other setting and be allowed to get away with it. If they needed time to prepare the hot tub for the next guests this should have been factored into their time not ours!!! In the future they should NOT book another occupant for the following day. There should be a gap between the bookings so they have time to clean and prepare the hot tub for the next guests. Our last night was totally ruined and it was a shame because we were really enjoying our stay. We used the hot tub of an evening so we could relax after a day of exploring the area. I would never book this venue again which is such a shame. I dont want to spend a full day disputing with the owner by text message while we were on a day trip. This really upset the family. If people don't want to use the hot tub this is a lovely cottage. However if you book it specifically for the hot tub, don't bother!! If you book 2 nights you will only get use of the hot tub for one night....this is a total rip-off. I will be seeking a partial refund for all the inconvenience.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that the hot tub could not be available for your last night. Hot tubs do take several hours to clean, refill and then heat up so it is not unheard of for an owner to need to do this on the first or last night of a stay. The owner has advised that she gave you the option to have her come on your last night or at 6am the next day but you chose the last evening and went out instead. The owner came at 6pm as agreed and was sure not to cause any disturbance. She did find grit and hairs in the hot tub the next morning and the clips had been undone so it was clear someone had been back in it anyway before you left. The owner wants to make sure the hot tub is throughly cleaned between stays to avoid any risks to her guests so has to act in their best interest. We are sorry for any upset caused. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay otherwise and the owner appreciated your kind message on departure. Property Owner

    It's located on a working farm in a beautiful part of Derbyshire and it was great to see the Derbyshire Gritstone sheep and chickens in the field next to the cottage as well as the horses and 4 extremely well behaved dogs. Dawn the owner is very friendly and helpful providing a great welcome pack of wine, milk, nibbles and fresh flowers as well as a fan to help my daughter cope with the extremely hot weather. It's a lovely base to visit the surrounding countryside and although we had some hot days we were still able to make use of the hot tub for which there were bath sheets provided and a 'man cave' bar to change in and enjoy drinks in. The beds were really comfortable which meant we all felt refreshed in the mornings. Just a really great place to stay and we will certainly be coming back.

The property

Horsley Woodhouse 2.1 miles.

Situated near a working farm in Coxbench, Derbyshire, home to sheep, chickens, and at the correct time of year, lambs, is this exquisite, single-storey barn conversion, Churn Dash Cottage.

Encompassed by luscious countryside while enjoying the comforts of a Smart TV and a hot tub, this holiday home is perfect for a family or a group of friends to escape to the country.

Off-road parking greets you before stepping into the open-plan living space, sure to be the social hub of the holiday.

The kitchen offers an induction hob and an American-style fridge/freezer so the chef of the family can rustle up a tasty dinner to enjoy out on the patio or at the dining table for four.

Complete with a feature fireplace, the sitting area welcomes you to unwind in front of the Smart TV after a day of walking and exploring the area.

When sleep calls, two well-presented bedrooms provide the perfect place to rest your head; one king-size bedroom has its own en-suite so you won't be short for places to freshen up, while the twin bedroom benefits from a zip/link feature for a flexible sleeping arrangement, and electric controls, making it ideal for a multi-generational family holiday.

There's also a family shower room, fit with a walk-in shower so you can rinse off after a busy day.

Outside, take advantage of the beautifully manicured gardens, and take a dip in the hot tub, or make use of the outdoor bar to finish off the evening.

If you can tear yourself away from this wonderful cottage, there are plenty of walking and cycling as well as nearby golfing opportunities in the area, or you can head outside of the village for attractions and dining options.

Belper is a charming market town home to a variety of interesting attractions; the Belper River Gardens are a lovely spot for a walk, and Eyes Meadow is a great place for a picnic, while history buffs will enjoy the Strutt's North Mill Museum, one of the oldest mills in the country.

Matlock is a charming market town perfect for a day out of exploring.

There are plenty of attractions to keep you busy, including the Heights of Abraham, Matlock Bath Aquarium and arcade, and for children and animal-lovers, Matlock Farm Park.
