Cosy property in beautiful location
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

Wonderful, Perfect, Loved It!
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.

Perfect family stay
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.
