“Great property, Kids and Dogs loved it”
Reviewed 12 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Lovely well appointed property, great secure gardens, we have two dogs who loved a big space to play. My boys aged 6 and 9 loved exploring the farm and using the trampoline. Cottage had lots of space and kitchen was very well equipped with everything you could possibly need.
would return and would reccommened

“Really lovely dog-friendly cottage”

Just had a great stay in Birch cottage. Cottage is cosy but not small. Kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to either make a snack or a 3 course meal. Lounge is airy and comfortable with a good sized TV. Bedrooms are nicely decorated and quaint - remember to mind your head in the bedrooms as the roof slopes! Really useful having two bathrooms for quick morning getaways.

For us the main thing is the dog-friendly-ness. This cottage had a big well fenced garden which 2 boisterous Labradors couldn't escape from. Also you had the use of a large field, usually used for horses - so wear your wellies! The dogs really loved their time here, they enjoyed licking the horses that were brave enough to poke their heads over the fence!

This is a one of the best dog-friendly places we have ever stayed and we wouldn't hesitate to return.

“Good cottage and location”

Stayed with daughter, her partner, 20 month old grandchild and my dog. Cottage was ideally located for good walks within a short travelling distance eg Carsington Water, Tittersworth reservoir, Dovedale, Ilam Park. At all of these there were really good play parks for the baby while I took the dog on longer walks. The large enclosed garden at Birch cottage was the best I have found for the dog - she could not get out at all. Owners very accommodating and friendly. Will visit again.

Good accommodation at this farm in the countryside. We stayed in Birch Cottage which can sleep 4 people. Easy drive to the theme park in the morning and about 10 minutes into the nearest town. Some good country pubs nearby too if you don't fancy cooking, though the cottage does have everything you would need.
