  • "A wonderful much-needed break."

    Great views and near enough to town to get amenities but also away enough that you can enjoy the Derbyshire countryside and air without going in on the busier roads. Definitely recommend

  • "Irene is a very welcoming host and was on hand but not intrusive."

    Cottage was well equipped and very handy for a range of attractions. I'd not realised that you have to walk through the downstairs bedroom to access the bathroom and stairs, but this was less of an issue than we thought it might have been. Recommend to others.

  • "Irene was a lovely host."

    She made us feel very welcome. The cake, wine and milk were a lovely touch after a long journey. Jazz and Red were also very welcoming and made sure to greet us each morning/evening if they could. The cottage was well equipped and very comfortable. A welcome retreat at the end of each day.

  • "Meadow farm is a delightful property in a scenic quiet location."

    Sofas and beds are very comfortable and there is a large shower. We were lucky there were sheep wandering round in the field behind which were fun to watch and would come to the window if you had a treat to share - they had our apples. Rooms are bigger than they appear in the photographs. It's a good central location to explore the peak district. A pleasure to return to after a long days sightseeing.

  • "Meadow Farm Cottage is located in such a beautiful setting with good strategic network of roads."

    Irene is a wonderful host and kept her cottage in sparkles clean condition. We had a wonderful time in the Peak Districts. Our children were very happy with the off road area and playing with the farm animals. Thank you for renting out your cottage we had such a memorable time.

  • "A gem of a cottage in a good location tucked in behind a farm gate and with secure parking, just a short drive from all the major attractions."

    Irene and Graham are lovely welcoming hosts. We found it ideal for the two of us - having the luxury of a big bed each (I would point out in separate rooms). Because we each like space I think we’d have found it a bit too cosy for four. However it would be a great place and great value for those who don’t mind.

  • "The cottage was an absolute credit to the owners."

    They were the perfect hosts, there to greet us, a bottle of wine and a cake to get us started and the most loveliest, kindest people you could wish to meet. It was like home from home, comfortable, warm, cosy and fully equipped. The venue gave us perfect access to the whole of the Peak district and its surrounding towns. We cycled the Tissington trail, climbed the peaks and visited numerous English Heritage sites. We also did some of the cave tours and went up to the Heights in the cable cars. Everything a holiday maker needed and even at our ages, (over sixties) fit as fiddles and out for a challenge. I even managed to find a few running routes that I felt safe doing on my own.

  • "Brilliant cottage, certainly exceeded expectations, very clean and well appointed."

    Shower very powerful if a little difficult to turn on but welcome, so many places we have stayed at have had poor showers. Only minor criticism, heating was via oil fired heaters, (central heating turned off) took a little time to warm up. Owners lovely people, friendly. The bottle of Aussie wine and cake didn't last long. Highly recommended.

    .. the location was beautiful! There was an abundance of things to do.. can't wait to visit again! The heights of Abraham and Crich tramway in particular were great places to visit with the little ones..really hope we get a chance to go on more of the walks next time. This was our third holiday booked through Skyes and once again we were very pleased.

  • "While we were happy with the accommodation in general, when we booked it there was no mention of the fact that you needed to walk through one bedroom to reach both the bathroom and the second bedroom."

    As we were three adults this made it difficult when rising in the mornings as you had to wait to go into the kitchen until the person in the downstairs bedroom was awake, so that you did not disturb them. Also when going to bed, as we were in the upstairs bedroom we needed to retire all at the same time so that we didn’t disturb our friend when was sleeping downstairs. I really feel that this should be made clear in your information as it could prove awkward for three friends staying together

  • "This is a lovely cosy cottage that is well cared for."

    It has been refurbished recently, so everything is spotless. It is a good base for driving to the many fabulous walks in the Peak District and for access to Buxton which is three and a half miles away. Buxton has many pubs and restaurants, plus caves and a beautiful gardens. It is definitely worth checking what is on at the opera house as we so enjoyed our evening there. There is no pub or shop in the village where Meadow Farm is situated, so you need to drive to Buxton where there are plenty of good shops and eating places.

    We only had a two day stay and the weather was as expected in February - cold and damp, but the cottage was warm and cosy. The location of the cottage meant that we were able to walk into Buxton, which was only just over 3 miles away and with a few hills on route, meant it was a good workout too! Thank you to Irene and Graham for being great hosts and we will definitely see you again.

    This quiet, immaculate cottage has character. Wi-fi is good - essential because the cellphone signal in the village is presently weak. An option to taking the car out, is an hourly bus service to Buxton, Stockport and beyond, just five minutes walk from the cottage.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Meadow Farm."

    Irene and Graham were so friendly and helpful, and we had good chats with them while relaxing outside in the evening. Our granddaughter, Holly, made friends with the dogs, Red and Pepe, and was fascinated with Irene's pet sheep. The property was so comfortable, every detail had been thought of, and we loved the little touches like the lights and other decorations. The location was ideal for us, and was our third year with Sykes, and our second in the Peak District. We will be back!

  • "The cottage was lovely, as was the outlook over the fields."

    It's proximity to Buxton and the A6 meant travel was easy and we were very central. However, being in a village meant peace and quiet. The hosts (Graham and Irene) were welcoming and helpful but not intrusive.

About the location


Tideswell 7 miles; Bakewell 12 miles; Matlock 21 miles.

It was the constant 28 degrees centigrade of the bubbling blue waters of Buxton's eight thermal springs that originally attracted the Romans to the town. However it was during the 18th and 19th centuries, under the patronage of successive Dukes of Devonshire, that the Palladian splendour of the Buxton of today was designed and built - including the magnificent semi-circular Crescent, The Great Stable, Hall Bank, The Square, The Pavilion Gardens and The Opera House. Today visitors continue to enjoy these magnificent buildings and gardens, as well as the Opera House's full programme and annual festivals of music and arts. There is good walking close by with rugged peaks to the north and gentle hills and dales to the south and a number of pretty towns and villages are dotted throughout including Bakewell, Ashford-in-the-Water, Castleton and Edale. The stunning properties of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are within easy driving distance and must be seen while visiting this area. A great base for exploring the Peak District.
