Lovely cottage, great base to explore from and a very warm welcome
The cottage is set surrounded by beautiful scenery and despite the nearby road, is well insulated from sound and the cold. We received a very warm welcome from Brian who gave the impression that nothing was too much trouble. Arriving ahead of our family (who had the provisions) it was great to be able to make a brew using the fresh milk and tea bags/coffee provided. There was also a lovely bottle of wine and fresh cut flowers. The cottage is finished to a very good and characterful specification, clearly a labor of love. The beds were amazingly comfortable and we could not fault the range of equipment and facilities in all respects. There are so many places of beauty and interest to access within a relatively short time. There was little activity on the farm and we never felt there was any lack of privacy or any potential disturbance. We met "Chick" the peacock who was very tame and sociable, just like Brian! We will definitely re-book at some point.

Lovely well equipped cottage
Just had a week here as a family of 4. Very nicely decorated and well equipped cottage. Plenty of space for the four of us. Brian was an attentive host and made sure everything was OK (which it was). You'd need a car to be based here as nothing much in walking distance but you wouldn't come to the Peaks without one anyway. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent cottage
Beautiful cottage in the heart of the Peak District. Brian the owner gave us a warm welcome to his spotless, beautifully furnished home from home. So comfortable with everything you need. After a good day walking, lovely to return and relax on the reclining sofas. So much to do, Monsal trail, Tissington Trail, Chatsworth House and the numerous caves, all worth a visit. Would definitely recommend this cottage and would certainly like to return.

Amazing !!
Had a lovely much needed break at Peacock cottage from 27th-2nd December. It had everything we needed it was a home from home with lots of extras like the gorgeous flowers upon arrival. The cottage was decorated and furnished beautifully and we felt at home. Brilliant location for days out, we visited Derwent reservoir, Castletown, Matlock Bath, Buxton,Leek and Bakewell. Would highly recommend The lamb inn in Chinley (SK236AL) for lovely home cooked food. We can?t thank Brian enough for his hospitality and understanding from booking the cottage till leaving, we would definitely love to come back. Thanks for the New Year's Eve memories !!

Perfect 10/10
A wonderfully converted cottage everything was such a high standard with everything we needed provided. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The setting had lovely views across the farm and hills are hens and peacock roaming around. The host made sure we were settled in and knew how everything in the cottage was explained. We had a relaxing week and shame we had to come home this is definitely 5star and would recommend a visit.
