  • "Lovely cottage."

    Nice and clean. Hot tub amazing!

  • "Nothing to fault."

    Cottage was just like the pictures. Log burner easy to use every night. Used the lovely hot tub a couple of times, again really simple instructions. The double bedroom - what can I say, the bedding was so comfortable and snuggly didn’t want to leave and had it all to myself! Lovely bottle of Prosecco on ice and 4 cupcakes (and milk) upon arrival was a lovely gesture. A really relaxing week’s break in a beautifully done cottage.

    This is our second time at the property and it certainly did not disappoint. The underfloor heating and log burner were super and really welcome this time of year (December!) However our favourite part was the amazing hot tub which is large in size and is amazing to sit in and unwind under the stars after a busy day of exploring the area. The property is very modern and very clean and we would highly recommend this property to anyone as it certainly does not disappoint.

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and beautifully presented, it’s in a lovely quiet rural position with a dog friendly private rear garden. It’s easily accessible by car with places to visit within easy reach. The hot tub was very relaxing and a welcome end to the day. The owner was welcoming on arrival and very helpful. Highly recommended .

  • "Great for what we needed for a base for 4 days."

    Kitchen bathroom, hot tub and beds all very clean. All kitchen equipment and bedding is of an excellent standard. Cottage looks lovely when you first walk in, but on closer inspection tv unit, skirting, woodwork etc were dusty and clearly hadn’t been done on change over . Units in bedroom had thick cobwebs and dust behind. That said these things didn’t affect our stay but should be acknowledged. Host was very helpful and friendly, she met us on arrival and gave us the information we needed, Prosecco and cupcakes were a lovely touch. Great location for Alton Towers, (25min drive), great pub nearby ( Shoulder of mutton). The other holiday cottage is very close, the people staying the same time as us had 3 dogs, they barked quite a lot and I could see and hear them at the upstairs windows barking in the mornings. The hot tub was wonderful for our teenagers after a day in the theme park. This was probably the highlight of the stay for them. We have stayed in a lot of cottages in the UK and I would rate this one as a solid 8/10.

    Dear Guest I very saddened to read your review. Orchard Barn, as previous guest reviews confirm, is maintained and cleaned to the highest standard. Great care is taken on each and every change over to ensure everything in the property is thoroughly cleaned and maintained. I think your concern wasn’t Orchard Barn but the dogs in the neighbouring holiday let. Dogs are certainly not allowed upstairs in any of our properties and as requested by myself any arising issues during your stay should have and could have been addressed straight away. We even exchanged dialogue via text during your stay but at no point did you give me the opportunity to rectify this particular issue, which would have been addressed straight away. It is in our interest to ensure that all our guests are entirely happy and enjoy their stay with us, which is reflected in previous reviews. Thank you for your positive comments and we would love to see you again soon. Property Owner

    Located right next to a footpath perfect for the dogs early morning walks. The hot tub was a real treat particularly after long walk in the Derbyshire hills. We had an issue with the dishwasher which was being rectified but no fault of the owners. A bbq would have been a welcome addition as any holiday requires a bbq whatever the weather!! Thank you for a lovely week.

  • "What a lovely cottage!"

    My wife and I stayed there for a week with our dog and absolutely loved it. The garden is large so it had plenty of space for the dog, it was so peaceful too being so far away from any busy roads and is fenced so is enclosed for the dog. The hot tub was great, it was clean and always hot. Inside the property, it is clearly well looked after and clean too. The communication from the owner (Rachael) was perfect, an email a couple of days before with additional information on how to find it, tips for when we got there, information for the dog etc and she also came to meet us in case we had any questions. Would absolutely recommend staying here - we’ll be trying to book a short stay in winter to make the most of the log burner.

    Lovely touches like freshly baked welcome cakes, prosecco and milk for our arrival. My only criticism would be how small and uncomfortable the pull out sofa bed was. Two adults dress size 10 used the sofa bed but it was very snug. Would still recommend and would probably still return should I need a place to stay in that area.

    Hi Melissa, Thank you for your great feedback. We noticed a problem with the frame of the sofa bed after your departure, this may of contributed to the sofa bed not being very comfortable. We have since replaced the sofa bed with a brand new one. We would love to see all of you again soon. Property Owner

  • "Wow - what a stay!"

    We came to this property for our mini-moon after our winter wedding at the start of December and the property was amazing from the start. Welcome cakes, milk and a bottle of Prosecco was a lovely gesture and really made us feel at home. It was super warm and the underfloor heating and log burner were a real treat! The hot tub was an added bonus which was amazing at night in the frost with the changing lights and was very spacious. All rooms were clean and fresh and the beds & bedding were super warm and comfy. Great outdoor space for our husky who loved the frosty mornings. Location is lovely and quaint and very quiet yet not too far from places if you wanted to explore - such as Trentham Shopping Village which is highly recommended. We would definitely recommend this property and will most definitely be returning again, as the hosts were more than accommodating and the property is everything we could have asked for…and more! Amazing stay and amazing property - thanks for letting us stay at your property to relax and enjoy the start of our married life in bliss. Top notch!!!! Nicola & Steve

    The kids loved the bunk beds and the hot tub was a lovely feature to make the holiday feel extra relaxing. We appreciated the welcome gifts too, very thoughtful. The location was great for us with lots of great attractions within half hour journey; Alton Towers theme park and waterpark, the National Trust Children's Museum at Sudbury, the Tissington cycle Trail, Dovedale walks and National trust at Ilam and Cannock chase for biking. We liked the Ramblers retreat cafe at Dimmingslade and the Gandhi Indian takeaway. We also ventured a bit further from Tissington to Carsington Water and found there to be a fabulous park, lovely walking trail and a a really wonderful hands on exhibit about water. I'm sure we will be back!

  • "Myself, my partner and our 2 dogs stayed here to see the new year in, and we had a great get away, there was even chilled bubbley waiting for us!"

    The place itself is really clean and modern, the hot tub was a real treat! Though on the owners grounds, it’s a very private area. The owners were wonderful, very polite and helpful but also left us to enjoy our break. We couldn’t fault our stay, there is a huge field near the cottage for dog walks where you can see cows and sheep. Also a lovely dog friendly pub just ten minutes walk from the cottage that has lovely food. Would definitely recommend this destination! Thank you for having us
