  • "The property was beautiful, comfortable and very well maintained."

    My only gripe is with Sykes listing saying that the holiday cottage is Hartington, when in reality that is five miles away in Newhaven.

    Dear Richard Sorry you found Sykes listing misleading I will ask them to be clearer although our address is Hartington and that is our nearest community and in rural areas you do find communities are wide spread.

  • "Shires Rest is a superb cottage."

    Hidden away in the lovely Derbyshire Dales. A stone`s throw away from the High Peaks Trail.(I wish I had taken my mountain-bike!) Traffic noise is not too obtrusive, especially if you close the bedroom window at night. A well equipped cottage with all the comforts of home. Harley, our Collie loved it too! With easy access to Buxton, Bakewell, Hartingdon and Matlock. It is situated on a busy road without footpaths, and is on a working farm, so if you don`t like farm smells and cows, it`s not for you! Less than 5 minutes drive from a FREE car park at Friden on the High Peaks Trail, a short distance from DSF, (The Derbyshire Silica Fire brick company). With a fantastic history of it on the wall in brick relief, beside the trail. We were introduced to Sue, who helps run the farm and owns the cottage. She came to see us personally after we had settled in. A lovely woman. We had a superb two weeks stay and The Carriages restaurant, just up the road, serves excellent food and real ales, at a vey reasonable price and our Harley is allowed in the restaurant, but not in the carriage, you`ll see when you get there. A well stocked local garage is just up the road too if you need to buy provisions but don`t want to go to town or supermarkets. It would be the icing on the cake if there were footpaths on the busy roads, but beggars can`t be choosers, so that`s just a small niggle. We loved the place, and would thoroughly recommend it. Thank you Sue. Hopefully see you next year, all being well.

    Thank you for taking the time to review Shires Rest and giving such a helpful review and kind words. We look forward to welcoming you back next year Many Thanks Sue Property Owner

    Dear Dennis Thank you for taking the time to review Shires Rest, I would like to apologise for the lack of games and DVDs but since covid we have felt they were a high risk area that wasn't essential but now you have raised the subject I will add a few, its a shame you didn't request some while you were here I could have found you some . I don't state that the shower is accessible in Shires Rest as it has steps up to it. It is quite tight turning into the drive from one direction but with care is possible but this is something I have no control over its highways who made it that way. The cottage does state a working farm and we pride ourselves on high animal welfare which involve keeping the cows beds cleaned out and this can cause a smell occasionally but we do try to do this during the day when guests are out. Sykes arrival and departure times stated can be adjusted if you had asked me as I do try to accommodate guests requests where I can Property Owner

  • "The property itself was very clean and well equipped, with everything you would need from a holiday rental."

    For me however, the bed was very hard indeed as was the sofa in the living room. Also the shower, which worked perfectly was probably the smallest I have ever encountered, being six foot 3 and 20 stone it was indeed a tight squeeze, but for normal sized people I'm sure it's fine. Just be aware that this property is on a working cattle farm, and there was early morning mooing and a strong cow aroma. The front door leads directly into the kitchen, it rained for a large period we were there and we had a dog, so a big mat would have been useful to wipe our feet on. There was a small mat but we had to put towels down for our big dog to stand on while we dried him. But all in all we had a very pleasant stay and would recommend it.

    The settee was ok but not the most comfortable. It is located on a dairy farm - so lots of country smells and animal noises. If this bothers you, this is not the place for you. There is some road noise but this is really only at peak times. There is a good pub/ restaurant just a few minutes walk away, but there is no footpath so care is needed walking along the roadway. It is about 5 minutes walk to Friden carpark on the High Peak Trail. This was brilliant for walking the dog. Lots of good walks locally. The cottage was excellent value for money and I would t hesitate to visit again.

    All the facilities you would need are there in the kitchen, although we ate out every day, only having breakfast in the cottage. When we returned back, it was nice to sit on the bench outside and read, soaking up the sunshine but the bench could have been more comfortable so used the sofa cushions for comfort. We didn’t find the road noise distracting (and I’m a light sleeper). The heating was very efficient which we used in the evenings as it became chilly, being October. We ate a few times in Carriages which is about a 2 minutes drive and had no complaints with the food or service. We definitely recommend. This is a very nice cottage for 2 and doesn’t feel at all cramped.

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.

This property offers the following short breaks:

  • Winter
  • Off-season
  • Last minute
