Cottage Review:  

We enjoyed a lovely week at Cow Barn. The property is of a very high standard and was spotlessly clean, I don?t think I?ve ever seen such a clean oven except in a showroom! Underfloor heating meant the house was toasty warm throughout and the beds all had lovely high quality bedding. Really nice roll top bath and walk in shower too. Very well equipped kitchen. All in all a lovely, comfortable place to stay. Lovely setting with very nice views and nice patio to sit out. Easy walk to the village which had 3 good pubs and 2 shops.

Minor point to note is the property is assessed via a private track which is a little rough in parts - didn?t bother me as I?m a country girl and used to it, but could imagine city folk finding it a bit awkward.

Would definitely recommend a stay here and would absolutely go back again.

A perfect weekend break for our daughter's birthday. Fabulous accommodation which suited 6 adults and 2 toddlers. Quality furnishings, beautiful decor yet homely. Such personal touches. Sweets, wine, milk and eggs are left for you. Everything you could wish for in a holiday home.

Excellent accommodation, 4 great bedrooms all quality bedding. The living room and kitchen make a super social space. Just lacks storage for food you have taken that doesn't go in fridge/freezer. The kitchen has everything you could ever need - very well equipped

The cottage was dressed for Christmas and decorated beautifully. This made my 50th birthday stay perfect. Lovely touches, sweet jar, eggs and milk and wine and tray filled with chocolates lollipops, biscuits etc. Alot of thought and effort has gone into making this property a success by Tony and Belinda

We highly recommend this cottage.

We stayed for a week, 3 adults and 4 children. We absolutely loved this cottage. Tucked away down a track road the cottage is surrounded by beautiful countryside views. The cottage itself has everything you could possibly need during a stay with or without children. There is lots of space for the children to play. The house is really comfortable and set up for having family time whether it be a bbq outside or a jigsaw inside.

The owners are also absolutely fantastic, friendly and helpful. We had an emergency with our 4 year old while there and I can't thank the owners enough for their help.

As well as all this the house is just 10 minutes drive from the picturesque Bakewell and a short drive to many attractions. we visited Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, and Hardwick Hall during our week.

We hope to return.

Lovely stay for 8 adults for our first trip to the Peak District. Clean, cosy and relaxing place to stay. Could not have asked for more. Milk eggs and welcome basket left for us. Helpful owner who recommended places in the village to eat. Beautiful house with modern amenities and fantastic walks very close by.

We had a lovely week here during the beginning of August, mostly dry weather as well! The accommodation and owners are superb, with the owners going out their way to help. We were a part of 6 (5x adults & 1 child aged 2), one of the adult guests is a wheelchair user. The accommodation is lovely and spacious, with every requirement you need from a CD player to a coffee maker, you name it, they pretty much had it! If you fancy baking, the kitchen is well equipped, many thanks for the complimentary wine, eggs & fresh milk etc! The rooms and accompanying bathrooms are modern & spacious, very cosy. The wetroom downstairs was perfect for our accompanying disabled guest! The outside patio area is lovely with fantastic scenic views. My daughter loved the owners chickens! The cottage is a bit hard to find at first, but once you know how to get to it you are sorted! The cottage is also ideally located as it is central to most of the main places in Derbyshire. I can certainly reccomend this accommodation to any who are wanting to spend some quality time in such a wonderful part of our country!

Wonderful location, the barn is superbly refurbished....we had a fantastic time. From the hot tub to the BBQ to the bedrooms....we had such a lovely relaxing week. Ideally located for walks in the country we will definitely be returning. Belinda and Tony are lovely too - and went over and above to return a forgotten item to me. Make sure you stay here!

Wanted a girly weekend to catch up relax and chill. Couldn't have found a better place, hot tub was superb, the whole place was finished to the highest standard every detail no matter how small was thought of. There was eight of us but you think the cottage was catering for three times that with crockery,glasses,towels etc. on arrival there was a welcome pack of basics but also a very welcome bottle of wine and box of chocolates. My only negative it is not very well signposted which made it difficult to find especially in the dark when I arrived. A small nig

The Cow Barn is exceptionally well-equipped, with generous supplies of towels, excellent cooking and washing facilities, and lots of books, games and DVDs. The house sleeps 8 comfortably and there are two very good bathrooms. The owners are welcoming and friendly. We were ever so grateful to Tony for his help with the cars when the roads became icy after Christmas.

We loved the wood burner and enjoyed our cosy evenings by the fire. The hot tub was great and we made good use of it despite the cold weather, sitting comfortably in the warm bubbles while admir
