Don?t Bother!!
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 away from the owners home, it was not a nice stay at all! We paid £300 for a 3 night stay but we found it that much of a bad experience we left after just one night! We were very disappointed after we had high hopes for the cottage after reading a lot of positive reviews. The owners have point blank refused even a 50% refund from our stay so we?ve paid £300 for one night, I wouldn?t recommend anyone staying here, as much as the reviews sound good because they leave a £1 box of chocolates and 2 ?3 bottles of cheap processco it's not a nice place at all! There's nothing around the area for miles either.

what a let down!!
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....

Small but perfectly formed
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 the door step, beautiful countryside, local villages to visit and Chatsworth House only a few miles away. The village of Youlgreave is lovely with 3 pubs to choose from and only a short walk away. Top tip: if you don't want to miss pie night on a Wednesday at the Farmyard Inn, make sure you book! Toni - the owner - was really helpful. Although this property is attached to another larger cottage and is next door to the owners own house, it is very quiet and we were not disturbed at all. The road to approach the barn is quite bumpy but perfectly accessible and exactly what I would expect from the countryside - it's 100% worth it for the location of the cow shed. We will definitely be back.

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?
