We loved Farm View Cottage, it was an ideal base for us to explore the surrounding areas, we particularly liked Bakewell and Matlock.
The cottage itself is very inviting, with a log burner in the kitchen which made it a lovely room to cook and eat meals in.
The bathroom and especially the wet room style shower were impressive and added a modern touch to the cottage.
The living room on the first floor was very cosy and Phil made it his job to battle with the open fire everyday. We noticed that the TV kept turning itself off every 10 minutes or so, not sure if this is a fault or if we were doing something wrong?!?
The bedroom was spacious, with everything we needed, it did get a little chilly up there at night but we used the little heater to warm the room up.
The cottage was very homely and well equipped and furnished. We would love to visit again in the warmer months and do some more exploring! Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely cottage. It's been great!

I instantly fell in love with the cottage as soon as i opened the door. While not to everyone's tastes, i loved the open fire in the living room and the general character of the cottage itself. My only negative was that the bedroom was alil cold at nights, so we ended up taking the small heater from the living room upstairs. The village itself is very quiet and relaxed, so if you're looking to escape urban life for a small time, this is ideal. My girlfriend and i explored areas including Bakewell, Buxton, Dovedale, Tissington and Ashbourne. Ashbourne was of particular highlight, as the very friendly shop owner for equatorial told us of a few great walks we could embark upon. My girlfriend brought her Spaniel and came to realise Bakewell isn't just dog friendly, but a village full of dog lovers.
So in summary, if you want a quiet, peaceful holiday with plenty of local tourist spots, great walks and amazing views, i really can't recommend this enough.

This was the perfect escape from the chaos of London. We loved the location and the tranquility of the location. The cottage is lovely and well looked after with everything needed for a break. We stayed for a week and were very sad to leave.
During our stay we visited Tissington, Hartington, Bakewell, Matlock, Ashbourne, Buxton, Wensleydale, and one of my faves Lumsdale Falls. Despite the weather being a bit ferocious at times we found drying out in front of the log burner a joy.
Would definitely recommend and make a return visit at some point
We stayed here for our first anniversary and it was perfect. Great opportunity to shut off from city life. Great location, nearby several towns and surrounded by beautiful scenary. Lovely little cottage, brilliant for a romantic break.
I stayed at the cottage for 7 nights with my wife. It's lovely and cozy with the fire going. I would recommend trips to Ashbourn and Bakewell (only a short drive away) Also the local pub is great. All the people there are friendly and welcoming, the shop also has most things you will need if you don't want to venture out. It is a really lovely cottage. In a really nice and quiet location.
