  • "A very narrow and steep road to reach the cottage not very good if you need to walk to the nearest pub for a delicious meal we had to use the car."

    The cottage was very clean and comfortable there was everything we needed even a few goodies .xx A steady walk to the Ford is a must for photos.

  • "What a lovely holiday cottage!"

    The weather was awful but knowing we had a beautiful, cosy, clean cottage to return to in the evenings saved our holiday! We loved the amazing view from the double doors in the living room. Everything we needed and more was provided. The extras were very thoughtful too...our kids very much appreciated the chocolate cake! The Loction was petefect, no nosey neighbours, just some peace and quiet. We took a walk down to the Ford one evening too. Thank you. (The only thing we missed was a vacuum cleaner...not that we really wanted to clean on holiday but would be handy for crumbs!)

    We had a perfect holiday there with everything we needed. The views from the cottage were beautiful and we had a restful break in this peaceful setting. I would highly recommend Woodlands Farm. The owners were extremely thoughtful and provided us with helpful information and it was so lovely to be left lots of treats upon our arrival. We would love to visit the cottage again when we’re next in Derbyshire as we miss staying there already!

    Walking in, you can see how clean the property was. Some lovely welcome goodies left in the fridge too. Comfy lounge with a huge TV and a fantastic view over the countryside. All the bedrooms are very nicely decorated and have great beds. The wifi is good (in most parts of the cottage). The owner was extremely helpful with arranging some things prior to our arrival. Highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a peaceful break in the peaks.

    It is immaculate and very well equipped throughout. It is so cosy and comfortable that we enjoyed spending time in the cottage as much as exploring the area. The cottage is also in an ideal spot to explore the dales. We cannot recommend this cottage highly enough.

  • "We loved the peaceful and safe location."

    We have three children and felt safe to go out for walks in the local area. The garden views from the property are beautiful and the local area had fields with animals including sheep and horses that the children loved. Jo and John were extremely helpful and went above and beyond to resolve any request or query raised. The property is child friendly with a child seat provided at the dining table. The bread, chocolate cake, flowers and a few other goodies that were provided upon arrival made for an extra special welcome! The sitting room was extremely cosy with its soft furnishings and long sofas. We are a family of five and I can confidently say that we all loved our stay and would definitely return to Woodlands farm! I would highly recommend this property to stay for a family holiday.

There’s lots to do near by we spent two days at Alton Towers which is only 30 mins drive away we visited Matlock and carsington water. We will definitely book up again So much more to visit.

    ). The bottle of Prosecco, yummy cake and a bottle of milk and cream was all a nice surprise. It was really clean and well equipped, it exceeded our expectations. Our only criticism was the lack of a washing machine, it would have been handy with teenagers! Luckily, it was fine weather when we were there. On the downside, we would never book with Sykes again, they didn't offer us a refund or an amendment to our holiday dates (without charging us!) which would have been helpful when the coronavirus is still around.

  • "Arrived in the rain and it took us ten minutes to get the key pad to work but managed it eventually."

    An easier solution would have been welcome. Once inside the welcome pack of Prosecco, cakes, bread, milk all very much appreciated as was the Happy birthday banner and the Fresh Flowers. Well equipped kitchen including a chair for a youngster, tea bags, coffee, washing up liquid etc. A Cheese knife and more pint glasses would help as would a washing machine, particularly if staying for a week. Very comfortable lounge with a large log burner. Great supply of games and DVD’s as well as a large TV. The downstairs bedroom would benefit from a wardrobe, it’s designed for two adults but nowhere to hang clothes. Maybe a wardrobe in place of the bookshelf. A working radiator would have been nice, the electric heater was ok but not very effective. The upstairs bedrooms were very nice with comfortable beds, great views and the main bedroom had a fantastic walk in wardrobe. The main bathroom was very well equipped with a great shower although one of the light bulbs in the shower cubicle was not working. Lovely views and there appeared to be a great garden area but not for us in November! Met the owner on arrival and was very welcoming. Good location for accessing Peak District attractions and walks and nice pub in the village. Overall, a convenient, well equipped, warm, cottage ideal for a short break and family celebration.

    The cottage is beautifully furnished with good facilities and equipment, and is neat and clean. There are lots of books and DVDs available in the cottage, but in truth we did not even switch on the TV as there was so much to enjoy in the house and area! The owners are very concerned that visitors have a good time, and there was a lovely surprise welcome pack when we arrived. We were fortunate with the weather, but anyway we had a glorious week and would recommend anyone to experience the cottage, and this part of Derbyshire, for themselves.

The cottage is in a great location, so quiet and peaceful and within easy reach of so many great places.

Maybe in the winter so we can make the most of the fabulous log burner.

About the location


Carsington Water 2.5 mile; Ashbourne 5 miles.

Steeped in history and situated at the southern end of the Peak District lies the lovely village of Hulland Ward, which, nine centuries ago, was the Royal Duffield Forest of Frith. Hulland Ward is made up from a number of smaller hamlets including Hulland Moss, Hulland Upper, Nether Biggin and Hulland Village and is comprised of a scattering of traditional brick-built cottages, old farmhouses and barn conversions, surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside and offering a number of country pubs renowned locally for excellent service and fine cuisine. Nearby Ashbourne is the perfect example of an English market town, boasting an eccentric street plan, narrow, cobbled alleys, old market stalls and many fine coaching inns. The town offers a good selection of restaurants, whilst being regarded as something of a haven for antique hunters. For those who prefer outdoor pursuits, Carsington Water is one of the country's premier watersports centres, offering excellent sailing and a host of other activities including walking, bird watching, cycling and bridleways, whilst Alton Towers is just 25 minutes away!
