    A beautiful tranquil facility with everything we needed to make our stay superb. Hosts went from above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. Will be returning for sure. Danny :)

  • "We had a lovely weekend stay at the Woodshed."

    Karl was a fantastic host, and has clearly put a lot of time and thought into the cottage, with special touches and very detailed local information which was super helpful. The cottage itself was one of the best kitted out I've stayed in, particularly if you are going to be cooking, which we did! A few perfect evenings of bbq, sipping wine in the hot tub and gazing at the stars was just what we needed - would highly recommend a visit if you're coming to the area. Thanks Karl!

    Thanks for the review Heather. I am Humbled! Property Owner

  • "The property and surrounding area are absolutely lovely!"

    There’s plenty to do, and if you want to relax the jacuzzi and view is stunning. The kitchen is well-equipped if you want to make dinner rather than dine out. Karl was an amazing host, very attentive and friendly. We would absolutely come back :)

    Thanks Bronya, Great to host you both, and so pleasing that your experience left you wanting to come back again in the future. Regards, Karl Property Owner

  • "This cottage is worthy of the 5 stars ."

    On our arrival we were met by Karl and and received a wonderful warm welcome and the chilled bottle and flowers were very much appreciated as we had booked for my wife's birthday.Karl was able to recommend a superb place for a meal and had a wonderful evening there. The highlight being the ride in the back of the 2CV with the roof back ! Next time I bring mine . The place is faultless, spotlessly clean and in a superb location overlooking the countryside to the hills. There is parking space and its easy to find with full directions .It's a perfect place to explore the area or just chill out. I have no doubts in recomending this place, I just hope that we will be able to book it when we want to return as it will no doubt be a popular cottage very soon

    Thanks so much for the strong recommendation Andrew. It was a pleasure to meet you and Monique, and to find we have a shared passion for crazy french cars. Driving around the Derbyshire Dales and Peaks is an absolute dream, so bring that classic next time! Property Owner

  • "An absolutely wonderful property with so many nice touches - it is very clear that Karl and family take pride in their offering."

    The prosecco on arrival was a nice thought and gratefully received, whilst the property itself has comfortable furniture, a really nice sized bed, a great shower etc and the hot tub just tops it all off. We found it to be a good location for the exploring we wanted to do and an enticing base to return to (the hot tub again) for evenings. The welcome pack was incredibly useful and we ate at two of the food places recommended and second both of them! Highly recommend a stay here and our thanks to Karl and family for such a lovely break.

    Hi Ryan, So kind of you to not only stay with us, but then also write such a lovely review. Glad everything met your expectation and yes, we take real pride in what we offer, so I'm glad that shone through! Regards, Karl (Helen & Pip) Property Owner

  • "We stayed in the Wood Shed for three nights over the weekend."

    The views are fantastic and the area is amazing, there's so much to do. Karl was an amazing host, super accommodating and very friendly! The hot tub has to be the best part by far, the sunsets and sunrises in the hot tub are fantastic. Our only gripe was a stain behind the toilet but other than that we would really recommend! Thanks for having us Karl.

    Thanks for the feedback George, we loved hosting you both! We hadn't spotted the stain, so I wish you'd mentioned it whilst you were with us and we could have addressed it. Anyway, we're "On IT" now, so thank all the same! Property Owner

    Karl ensured that everything was as it should be, the fresh flowers and Prosecco on ice were a lovely touch. The hot tub, gas barbecue and outdoor dining set were available on the decking if we wanted them. The cottage is less than 6 months old so is very clean and fresh. We would recommend to any couples wanting a short break.

  • "To mirror previous reviews, this very clean, cosy, well-appointed cottage has everything a couple visiting the area could possibly want or need."

    The personal welcome from host, Karl along a bottle of chilled Prosecco and fresh flowers were very nice touches. The cottage is well equipped with a lovely shower room and an extremely comfortable bed. The hot tub, sun deck and view across the meadow were just added bonuses. As others have mentioned Karl is a superb host and nothing is too much trouble for him. This cottage is ideally situated to explore the surrounding area both locally and further afield within the Peak District. I cannot recommend this property enough.

    We loved having you both stay with us Christine and we're just glad our latest cottage lived up to your expectations. As a family, we've tried to create spaces that are memorable for all the right reasons, so thank you very much for the kind words! Karl, Helen & Pip! Property Owner

  • "Our stay at the Woodshed was absolutely magical!"

    The sheer level of hospitality and thoughtfulness shown by the owners is completely unmatched. They have absolutely thought of everything and more to include in the cottage! The cottage includes everything you’d need for a romantic getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city, with all the best amenities required, the most heavenly of beds and views of the sunset from the hot tub to complete a wonderful day. The owners were always available and helpful. In all our travelling we have never met owners who made us feel so at home as they did and we are truly grateful for that. I cannot rave enough about how great of an experience it was and we will most certainly be regular visitors!

    It was an absolute pleasure to have you stay with us. Your feedback is very kind and I promise to you and all future guests that we will continue at the same level of attention and hospitality. Stay safe and do come back! Property Owner

    Karl the owner is lovely nothing to much trouble, when we arrived there was a bottle of Prosecco chilling in an ice bucket and fresh flowers in a vase , will certainly book another stay in the near future.

Bank Top Farm Cottages

Perched within idyllic countryside and boasting tranquil views of rural nature and the Derbyshire Dales, are three stylish and contemporary holiday cottages. The Bank Top Farm cottages are joined together on a single-storey level and each property has their own private decking and private hot tub as well as benefiting from shared access to a quaint outdoor seating area where groups of friends or a family can join together to socialise. For local amenities, head into the nearby village of Rocester and pick up the essentials, alternatively, the lovely market town of Ashbourne, waiting to be explored with its wonderful selection of eateries, independent shops, and the start of the Tissington Trail, the city of Derby, where all the major chains are represented, can be reached in half an hour. For the adrenaline junkies, you can look forward to spending the day at Alton Towers, boasting many thrilling rides including, Runaway Mine Train, Nemesis, Oblivion, Galactica, The Smiler, and Wicker Man; or visit the whimsical play area at the waterpark to enjoy the tropical lagoon, promising family fun all year around. If you want to take things more slowly, why not head to Denstone Farm Shop and Cafe for something scrumptious, before an easy stroll along the repurposed and picturesque Churnet Valley Railway. However, keener walkers can look forward to exploring the Limestone Way, which leads to Matlock or travel to the National Park to explore the delights of Dovedale Stepping Stones, Ilam Park and Thor's Cave.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


  • Matlock 15.7 miles
  • Bakewell 16.6 miles
  • Chatsworth 20.4 miles

Lying at the southern end of the Peak District, Ashbourne is a perfect example of an English market town - market place with stalls, eccentric street plan, narrow cobbled alleys, coaching inns and almshouses. In its heyday in the 18th-century, the town was a fashionable social centre, and many fine Georgian buildings remain from this period. Today the town still has much to offer in terms of restaurants and inns and is regarded as something of a haven for antique hunters - but don’t expect a bargain! For those who prefer more outdoor pursuits, the Dove and Manifold Valleys are close by and for thrill seekers Alton Towers with its exciting collecting of rides and attractions is just a short drive away.
