“Lovely cottage and area”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We booked this just from viewing the cottage and area online, and saw the excellent reviews. They are well justified and we echo them too. This was a perfect cottage for 2 people, exceptionally comfortable bed, nice bathroom and fantastic open plan living room and kitchen. We were welcomed with fresh bread and jams etc, which was a really nice touch. The owners were on site to help but didn't intrude. We had a great time in beautiful part of the world and would certainly come back here. Lovely weekend,

“Fantastic cottage in beautiful setting”
Reviewed 24 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My family (my parents, 4 year old son and myself) stayed for a week in The Coach House. The cottage is extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need; everything is of really good quality. The kitchen is gorgeous with a great American Style fried-freezer so there's lots of room for storing food and cooking. The sofas in the lounge are very comfortable and the large screen TV and DVD player provide welcome entertainment, as do the provided board games. The beds were all very comfortable and my son loved the toys and books in his bedroom. Outside the seating is very comfortable and there is plenty of space in the paddock for little ones to run around, greet the horse in neighbouring field and observe wildlife. The provided barbecue is great and really clean, so we only had to buy charcoal, not a disposable bbq as we usually end up doing. The little welcoming touches, such as the fresh flowers in the lounge and basket of bread, cheese, chutney, milk, scones ,butter and jam were lovely and very welcome after a day of travelling. There are lots of things to do in the surrounding area, we loved Bakewell (the children's play area with water fountains to run around in was a huge hit,) Trentham Gardens and Monkey Forest, all of which are within easy driving distance.

“Excellent accommodation in a beautiful spot”
Reviewed 2 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We enjoyed our first visit to the Peak District and could not have found a better location. Plenty of places and sights to visit - all within easy reach. Excellent hosts and accommodation. The Haybarn had everything we needed - and more - and was very well appointed.
Fantastic property in a peaceful location with many walks and cycles on offer from the door step. Only regret - we could stay just a week. We will be back though.

“Amazing location and beautiful cottages”
Reviewed 2 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed in the coach house and my parents stayed in the hay barn. The coach house was perfect for us in every way, lovely gallery king size bedroom over looking the lounge. Ensuite king size bedroom and a bunk bedroom and family bathroom. Kitchen had everything you could imagine you might need and more! The owners have certainly thought of everything. The views over the valley are amazing and you can sit outside in your own paddock to sample them. Lots of outside space with benches and six seater table and chairs, with solar lanterns. Lots to see and do in the area. Loved the use of the owners bikes provided free of charge and went on a few rides down the manifold trail. Nice walk to Thors cave from cottage and visits to Matlock heights of Abraham, Ilam country park, Bakewell all recommended. Gorgeous meals and friendly, welcoming staff at the Devonshire Arms in Hartington. We all enjoyed our stay and had a lovely holiday here, thanks

“Peace perfect peace”
Reviewed 1 August 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Booked Swainsley Farm and really enjoyed the stay. We arrived late afternoon and were shown directly into The Coach House. The welcome platter of cheeses, bread, butter, scones and chutneys as well as tea, coffee and fresh milk was a lovely touch and very welcome after a long journey. Chris gave us time to get unpacked then returned to run through what we would need to know for our stay. The folder in the cottage has lots of very useful information re the surrounding area and places to eat/shop. The cottage was amazing. Everything you wanted was there including a Nespresso coffee machine. The views were breathtaking and although the weather was rather wet, which meant we did not get the chance to sit out much the range of garden furniture available for use was more than enough. There was an abundance of wildlife and being a very keen but very amature photographer I loved the opportunity I had to photograph birds, horses, cows and deer. Looking into the Manifold Valley was picture perfect. We did spend a bit more on this holiday rental than we had originally planned however it was money well spent. The other two cottages on the farm were close by however you never felt as though your privacy was being invaded. Lovely walks right on the doorstep was the icing on the cake.
