  • "We absolutely loved our stay, we could not fault the cottage."

    Situated on a working farm - with associated aromas - but that didn’t bother us. Sue was very welcoming. The cottage itself was more than fully equipped with everything we needed. The wet room was a godsend for my wife. It would certainly be our first choice if we visit the Peak District again

  • "Lovely stay in a well equipped barn conversion."

    Met my dad's needs ( parkinsons) very well. Took a couple of days to work out the TV...probably me, no goid with techno. Couldn't find any dvds so bought a couple and left for others. Could have done with a bit of info about local area.....WiFi code well hidden ( not with appliances instructions or contact numbers on fridge) found eventually in the glass cabinet, on our last day ! Hartington has a goid selection of small shops and eateries including a farm shop and cafe, - (Wheelchair accessible)

  • "A very comfortable cottage for anyone with mobility problems or disability."

    The wet room is equipped for wheelchair users and access via a slope to the cottage is good. Sue, the owner, was very welcoming and keen to make sure that we could use all appliances effectively. There was no mobile phone signal at the cottage but Wifi did work well. The entrance driveway can be difficult to turn into when approaching from the A515 junction direction but is a lot easier when approaching from the Matlock A5012 direction.

  • "This property was situated within the residential part of a working dairy farm."

    It Is a very quiet an restful place. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. Very well stocked with everything anyone could want and well designed for disabled people. Ramps and accessible wet room. Private parking and garden area with picnic seating available. The cottage is well placed to use as a touring base for the region with good road links. There are a few excellent Pub Diners within minutes. Some SATVAVs may only get you within a quarter mile of the cottage but that's not a significant problem.

    Be ready for all things ‘farm’ and early road noise. No views from Piggery Place. Great location for getting out into the Peaks, everything within 30 minutes!

  • "Fabulous stay this week."

    Host Sue was lovely and welcoming. Property was perfect, clean, great location and a home from home. The little extras like washing up liquid, cloths, hand wash etc were brilliant. A great location to visit lots of places including Alton towers, Bakewell, Buxton, outlet shopping, and beautiful walks but also enable you to come back and relax. Seeing some calf’s born in the farm was the icing on the cake. Visited with my 13 & 14 year old who can be hard to please but definitely gave this place a thumbs up. Highly recommended!

    Thank you for your kind words, glad you enjoyed your stay and we are always pleased when guests take an interest in our girls. Hope you will return in the future Sue Property Owner

  • "My husband has severe mobility problems."

    He uses a walking frame and struggles to balance and stand. Piggery Place was well kitted out for him and certainly suited his needs. We were very pleased to see the hand rails and the shower chair in the wet room. The arm chairs in the lounge, we’re not too low and had arms which helped him when he stood up. The furniture was sturdy so that he could lean on it when necessary, to pull himself upright. Our cottage was very well equipped, nice and warm and there was plenty of hot water. The cottage is very close to the High Peak Trail and Long Dale is a stunning, little-known valley, perfect for walking. There is cycle hire and mobility scooter hire at Parsley Hay. We enjoyed our visits to Hartington, Ashbourne and Youlgrave. It was fascinating being on a working dairy farm and the cottage is situated opposite the ‘nursery’. So I enjoyed seeing the calves and watching them being fed. Sue is extremely helpful and is happy to answer any questions about the locality or the farm.

    The cottage, Piggery Place, was very comfortable, clean, well equipped and had a very homely feel. I have limited mobility and everything was designed to accommodate wheelchair users. Piggery Place faces the maternity barn with the nursery next door and we were fortunate enough to see 3 day old twin calves. It was a lovely relaxing time and we hope to go there again. Highly recommended.

  • "The accommodation was rather gloomy and needs updating."

    When sitting outside, the noise from the farms fans and the road made it difficult to relax outside. The fans did not go off until 11.30 pm so it was hard to get an early night. The property could benefit from secondary double glazing to alleviate external noise, particularly from the main road.

  • "Cottage itself was comfy, WiFi worked etc."

    Bed was very comfy. Kitchen well equipped, although there was a washer but no dryer and nowhere to dry clothes either. Our main gripe with this cottage however was lack of peace and quiet. The mooing cows were no problem for us, but one side of the cottage is on a noisy main road and on the other side is right by farm buildings with noisy extractor fans running 24 hrs a day, which prevented us opening windows and using the outdoor seating space. An old fridge freezer had been dumped outside near the front door. There was no introductory folder, in particular info for operating/switching off the heating system. Hartington is lovely but some miles from the cottage, in our view it is inappropriate to assign its attributes for this cottage. However the cottage is very well situated indeed for access to the cycle trails and also general driving to Ashbourne, Bakewell and Buxton are all not that far away.

  • "A very nice cottage indeed and very well placed for exploring the area."

    We were made welcome. There is one issue that may be to do with the way Sykes lists pet-free properties, or it may be to do with how the owner has portrayed it: it appears on your web-site as pet-free, but in fact, as this is a property suitable for the disabled, it actually allows assistance dogs. While this did not affect us, it could well be a major problem for any visitor with severe allergies who is expecting to be visiting a pet-free property when in fact it may not be.

Old House Farm Cottages

A delightful group of cottages located in the hamlet of Newhaven, by the village of Hartington, in the Dove Valley of the Peak District National Park, an excellent base to begin your adventures throughout the season. Offering somewhere comfortable to return to, each retreat has been thoughtfully put together, so you can enjoy dining in style, and cosying up in front of the TV after an adventure-filled day. Woodburner-effect fires provide warmth on those cooler nights, with charming furnishings to set the scene. The bedrooms are each attuned to the feel of the cottage, your little place to enjoy some peace and quiet upon returning home. The hamlet of Newhaven, which is right on the doorstep, offers the Carriages Bar and Restaurant, serving a selection of local Real Ales and locally sourced wines, as well as a relaxing atmosphere. Try something from their tasty menu or just stop by for a refreshing drink. Steeped in history, this little hamlet is home to many old inns and farmhouses from different periods, and there are some beautiful walks varying in strength to suit all capabilities. A lovely village at the northern end of Dovedale, the village is set in some of the very best walking country including the high peak trails, suitable for off road cycling and walkers. Hartington's past wealth and importance is reflected in the impressive stone cottages and houses around the village square and many ancient routes and trackways still meet in the village. One of the most notable buildings in the village is Hartington Hall, now the local YHA. Dating back to 1611, the manor house still retains much of its original charm and is one of the most popular youth hostels in the Peak District, with a restaurant open to the public serving locally sourced produce. This village is surrounded by wonderful scenery with a network of footpaths radiating from it. To the south is romantic Beresford Dale, leading to Wovescote Dale and the famous Dovedale or venture north, in the Upper Dove valley on quieter paths to Pilsbury Castle and Crowdecote. All you need for a memorable getaway.

About the location


Bakewell 10 miles; Buxton 10 miles.

Hartington, situated in the Dove Valley in the Peak District National Park, was an important market centre in the Middle Ages, having been granted a market charter in 1203. Today the ever-popular village boasts lovely tea rooms, a cheese shop, old curiosity shops, traditional pubs and a splendid market square where the stone-carved village pump, once an important source of water for the villagers, still stands on the green. The local bars stock local ales brewed at the Leatherbritches Brewery in Fenny Bentley and Whim Ales in Hartington itself. The former Hartington railway station, about a mile and half from the village itself, is now a picnic area and the converted track is known as the Tissington Trail, popular with both walkers and cyclists. Hartington is also a good starting point for walking along Beresford Dale, a beautiful place with its curiously formed cliffs and rocks. Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are both within a 20 minute drive, and Alton Towers is within easy reach.
