Disgusting! We went here to enjoy a nice peaceful weekend spending a majority of our time in the hot tub, when we arrived we were told you could not use it after 10pm there was nothing on the website stating this, the hot tub was only luke warm, there was a camera directly on the hot tub, the owners said they were happy for us to have a Yankee candle on the drinks holder on the hot tub to get extra light after we did this we were confronted and asked to remove them. This made us feel as we were being watched there?s no privacy here at all as your a few yards

After a long 1.5 hour drive we thought we were in for a lovely relaxing treat. I honestly would spend your money else where unless of course you want to sit in a luke warm ?hot tub? and feel watched by the owners....

The cow shed is small but perfectly sized for couples who will be spending most of the day out and about enjoying all the local area has to offer.

Cannot fault the accommodation at all, everything has been done to a high spec/standard and has all the facilities you may need. Lots of storage space and a very well equipped kitchen. Lots of additional extras were a nice touch - prosecco, milk, eggs, biscuits and sweeties.

Hot tub is perfect for relaxing after a hard day out walking and extra towels are provided too.

Local area has a lot to offer: walks on th

We visited the cow shed for our first anniversary and couldn't have been happier with our choice. We arrived to a warm welcome from Tony, very helpful lovely chap! The little extras in the room were such a lovely touch and made our stay all the more special. The bed was so comfy, the hot tub a great perk! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!

The road to the Cowshed is TERRIBLE deep pot holes for about half a mile so BEWARE!. I am AMAZED how cars are supposed to go on to this road! Even to dangerous for the cows.

Once we arrived at the Cowshed it was ok, hot tub lovely after a hard days walking. The Cowshed had everything you would need on holiday. The owner Tony was really nice and nothing was to much trouble. Sleeping, eating, watching TV in one room was not really what we wanted but maybe we should have read the description more intensely?

Had a great stay here. The owners are very approachable and pleasant. Really lovely location and buildings, with everything 2 people would need for a stay away. A few 'extras' are thrown in for your arrival, which are well received. Exclusive use of a hot tub is fantastic. The walk into the village will keep you fit (!) and The Bulls Head serves great food and great beer. The location offers a number of great walks and there are a lot of things to do /places to visit within a 10 mile radius. We'll be back :-)

I'm a cyclist and runner, my wife likes dragging me around small towns and villages. This made the Cow Sheds location the perfect base for us both. It's small yes, but beautifully finished and so comfortable. Every evening after a morning on the bike and an afternoon around one of the lovely local towns (Haddon Hall is WELL worth a visit btw and that's not usually my cup of tea at all) I jumped in the hot tub with a beautiful view over the hills, with a book and totally forgot that I have to go back to work next week. And I've not slept better for years. Super comfy bed, super quiet, super sleep.

Youlgrave is a five minute walk away and naturally we tried all three pubs, couldn't fault any of them, next time I won't be missing 'Pie Night' in the Farmyard either. Walking /running along the riverside is a pleasure and the locals all seem very friendly too.

The owner Tony is an absolute top man and couldn't be more helpful, I'll give him back the pint of milk I owe him when I return, which I most definitely will, probably in the Cow Barn with the rest of my brood.

If you're outdoorsy and like peace and quiet, comfort and a hill or 50 to bike/walk/run up then this is the place for you. Highly recommended.

Fantastic stay here. Hot tub was an amazing perk. The cottage was perfect and cosy. The owners were so friendly and accommodating. All the local pubs welcomed you. My boyfriend proposed to me here. Its a beautiful place and we will be back very soon. Thankyou.
