Great place to stay. We had a lovely weekend with plenty of activities for all ages. We also ordered very good food from the farm, I will definitely recommend it. There are lots of walks to do in the area.

We desperately needed some time away after a few hectic months. This cottage was the perfect choice. We arrived in the dark, after having lost our way! But a quick phone call to the farm and we were given instructions as to where to go. Beautiful, compact cottage. Well stocked kitchen and the MOST comfortable bed. We had pre-ordered milk,... More

Booked three nights in the small cottage for two (plus baby). Although very much part of the complex of farm house and buildings, the cottage feels quite secluded with its own lovely private aspect over fields. It is very petite (two rooms plus a bathroom) but ample for a short stay, and in the summer you'd be able to spread... More

It was our first visit to the Peak District and we were won over by the scenery through Dovedale and Ilam before even arriving at Beechenhill! The cottage by the pond was perfect for us and very cosy and comfortable. We had snow which added to the children's enjoyment and they loved collecting eggs from the chickens and watching the...

Great location, accommodation was excellent with a kitchen well stocked with anything you could throw at it. The owners were very helpful, gave good advice and were very welcoming. Cottage felt very secluded despite the fact it was right on the farm.

We enjoyed our summer stay 2014 at Beechenhill so much we were confident our choice to spend Christmas there was a good one. Again a fantastic stay, the weather and temperature were certainly different but the welcome and tranquillity were uncompromised. The landscape was equally beautiful especially as we had a lot of snow as opposed to a very hot... More

We really did have a fantastic time at Beechenhill. Rob and Douglas met us on arrival and showed us around, and then left us to settle in. Coming in from the cold to such a wam welcome was amazing. The woodburner was lit and the cottage was very cosy and welcoming! The ready meal we had ordered was out and... More

Despite variable weather we had a great stay. I guess this underlines how nice the place really is. We arrived in the dark, having driven over small, winding country lanes for the last stretch up to Beechenhill. When arriving the woodburner was at full power and the cottage in excellent condition. Such a nice arrival!

This isn't greenwash 'ECO friendly' like most hotels where they simply ask you to re-use your towels to save the environment (or their laundry bill?), the owners are clearly committed to a high level of environmental stewardship, running an organic farm and having heavily invested in renewable technologies to help heat and power the cottages and farmhouse. There was even... More
