Just back from a long bank holiday weekend with my family.
Staying at the Coach House Alstonefield. A perfect location staying on a working farm. Walks right on your doorsteps facing Wetton Hill and many more.
My two grandsons thought it was amazing being shown around the farm feeding the lambs, having a tractor ride & collecting fresh eggs for their breakfast. So much so they want to know when we will be going again.
The coach house was great for families warm & comfortable and a very e relaxing time was had by all. Can't wait for our next visit hopefully stop a little longer.
We thoroughly enjoyed our second stay at the Coach House.We went at this time of year so we were able to see the lambing & help out where we could.The family are very friendly & welcoming.The cottage is comfortable with everything you could want - especially the lovely eggs courtesy of their hens - thanks girls!! Nearby is Ashbourne which is worth a visit,including 'The George & Dragon'pub in the square.We plan to return again & get away from it all.
4 night stay for 2 adults & 2 dogs. Very spacious and comfortable cottage. Teresa and her family are very nice and welcome you to their farm and leave you to enjoy the cottage and surroundings. Good location, very peaceful and close to lovely scenery and walks. Will certainly book again.
The Peak District is beautiful, and this delightful little cottage, situated on a working farm, is the perfect place to appreciate it.
The cottage is lovely, and Teresa and her family are friendly and accommodating - they made us feel welcome from the get-go, and went out of their way to do so.
My daughter loves animals, so the farm was a big attraction. There was no shortage of opportunities to make the most of it: Sam (Teresa's son) let us ride in the trailer when he went to feed the cows and the lambs. In the morning, Maya (my daughter) joined in with bottle feeding the little ones.
The location is ideal, offering breathtaking views of the peaks and plenty of country roads to walk down, where vehicles are a pleasant rarity. Villages with country pubs and artisanal grocery shops are just a few miles away - we went for a very fulfilling walk and stopped for a (brilliant) pub lunch at The George.
All in all, I would recommend The Coach House to anyone looking for a quiet getaway in the British countryside, and will be returning next summer!
Had a wonderful week in March staying at the Coach House despite getting snowed in!!!
The cottage was comfortable & we felt quite at home there.
We were made to feel welcome by the owners,Teresa,Robert & son,Sam especially on the farm.We helped with many jobs - bedding with fresh straw,feeding corn & hay,refilling water buckets,assiting with moving new mums & lambs to individual pens & delivering 2 lambs.
It was a wonderful experience which we're hoping to repeat next year.
