“Wonderful Peak District Retreat”
Reviewed 28 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed in the Old Farrowings for a couple of nights and everything there was perfect!

the cottage is surrounded by amazing views and Jane was very helpful (even providing brownies!)

Would highly recommend and hope to come back again soon.

“Absolutely beautiful ”
Reviewed 24 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I recently booked this for a weekend away for my girlfriends birthday, and we couldn't believe just how beautiful it was. Fields as far as the eye could see and the amazing rolling hills. The owners have thought of everything you could need, a well detailed information folder on local tourist information, as well as more details about the cottage. Freshly baked brownies on arrival was a great touch. Would definitely recommend to anyone and are looking at returning later in the year.

“Peace & luxury!”
Reviewed 1 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We spent three nights in this beautiful location. The Old Farrowings is just delightful. Gorgeous huge bedroom with comfy bed & nice linen, tv & lovely bathroom. The bathroom is nice & roomy too with bath & a nice big separate shower.
The rest of the apartment/ cottage is very quaint & cosy with everything you could need or want. There are even some dvds to watch, books to read & yummy cookies left by Jane even though she was away when we arrived.There is also tea / coffee provisions & even a nespresso machine & bottled water.
It was just amazing each morning to wake up & look out to the beautiful green hills with the cows & of course those cheeky geese who could entertain you for hours.
All communication that we had with Jane before we came was great & we felt very welcome to Biggin Grange.
We did really love the Old Farrowings with it's rustic feel & every comfort. We would definitely love to come again to this delightful place if we ever are back in the UK.

It was lovely to have you both to stay in The Old Farrowings all the way from Australia! Thanks for writing such a lovely review and I hope the rest of your trip in the UK goes well. It was nice to chat with you and get your feed-back about the cottage and glad it ticked all of the boxes for you. Please do come back and stay again if ever you are back in England. Jane

It was lovely to have you both back and am so pleased that you had yet another good time - 5th time ....! It was great you had such lovely sunny weather and the bonus of the moon. I wish I had remembered to set my clock for the middle of the night but even at 5.15am this morning it was very special! Look forward to seeing you again in the future - I should be offering reward points for repeat business! Jane
