Great things come in small packages!
My husband and I came here on our mini-moon. Absolutely charming place. Fantastic setting. Beautiful little studio apartment, but well equipped with everything you could need. One of the best features for me is that the owners had thought of all of those 'finishing' touches that make a place feel warm and cosy. From the curtains and blinds, the toiletries in the bathroom and the chocolate just about everywhere we looked! (much appreciated btw haha) Hot tub was great. Just made our stay even more perfect. We're already wanting to book again but for the summer time! The only thing I would say is to take a torch I you're planning on visiting the pubs in the village after dark. The track is pitch black and a bit wobbly in places :-)

Cosy, charming, and well presented with beautiful scenery
We arrived at the cow shed and were met with a clean, well-equipped studio cottage which we noticed the pictures online do not adequately do justice to. We found the decor in the Cow Shed to be modern but with a vintage feel to it, keeping it's traditional look. The inside of the cottage contained many lovely little touches including complimentary sweets/prosecco/biscuits/tea/coffee/milk/dvds and even fresh eggs from the owner's hens. The owner Tony was a great help, both informative and very friendly, anything we needed he was quick to assist with (coal for bbq,ironing board, matches and cooking oil). The hot tub was very clean and romantic with the beautiful surroundings of the Peak District. Lots of walks and sights to see nearby. The bed was a beautiful vintage feature which was extremely comfortable. There was lots of storage space for clothes etc.The only negatives of our stay would be a large amount of wasps nearby (which we understand couldn't be helped but should be looked into incase of nests) and lastly we felt the studio cottage was really hot even though we had turned off any heating, which we later discovered from the owner himself there was underfloor heating set at a temperature of 20 degrees. We felt this was set too high.Overall we had a fantastic,welcoming experience that we will cherish and will certainly be returning and recommending to all relatives and friends!! Thank you for having us and allowing us to celebrate a fantastic 21st & 22nd birthday all in one :)

An amazing holiday, a wonderful cosy cottage and a great hot tub. There were lots of nice walks in the area.

A quaint and cosy cottage, clean and perfect for a few days. The hot tub was brilliant for long days walking or cycling. The views were beautiful to wake up to and it was not too far to walk to the village for lunch or dinner.
