Poppy cottage is an incredibly cosy and pleasant place to stay. The cottage itself is completely private with a self contained lounge area with a warm open fire, The attention to detail and care Alison takes in the property is impeccable. It was a wonderful treat to be greeted with delicious lemon drizzle cake and tea on arrival. You will... More

The cottage is set in the heart of the village of Birchover. A very old charming stone-built cottage with a dining/living room downstairs (with a TV and a lovely fireplace ready to light in the evenings if desired) and 2 bedrooms and a spacious bathroom upstairs. Alison had a completely separate living space, part of which was the kitchen where... More

Super stay at Poppy Cottage. So much space for the family and having a full sized bathroom was such a bonus. Lovely homemade breakfast, fluffy towels and really clean. Harry the dog is really good for children. Good location, and would recommend the Druid inn for really tasty food at great price. Would definitely stay again.

Alison's breakfasts are legendry as is her home baking, bread and cakes, scrumptious!!! There is lots to see and visit in a very close... More

Stayed here for a few days in July, and it was fantastic. The B&B has its own lounge with a dining area, two double bedrooms and a big bathroom. You have the use of it entirely to yourself and Alison serves an amazing breakfast each morning. Definitely the best B&B we have ever stayed in! Alison has a Yorkshire terrier... More

Just returned from a few days' walking in the Peak District with a friend. We stayed at this beautiful, quint-essential English cottage in the small village of Birchover, central to many wonderful walks. Alison was very welcoming, providing us with afternoon tea on arrival and beautifully cooked breakfasts. Nothing was too much to ask. The cottage has its own entrance,... More

I stayed here as part of a boys weekend away in the peaks. We were dotted round in different locations and it's fair to say we hit the jackpot! Poppy Cottage is a lovely house in the middle of Birchover (which has a couple of pubs and places to eat) and an easy drive to the attractions of the Peaks.... More

Poppy Cottage is a truly charming place. Booked at short notice. Birchover is a lovely happening village two pubs serving good food and drink till late. Alison was a wonderful host serving a tray of tea and homemade flapjacks on arrival. Two lovely double rooms and the run of the main part of the cottage, a true home from home.... More

Second stay at this truly excellent B&B. This time we came with Bethany my sisters Grandaughter (10). Alison made us very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. She goes out of her way to make sure everything is perfect. We will return again as we feel Poppy Cottage is home from home. Missing it already.

It is homely, relaxing and extremely spacious and is separate to the rest of the house so your privacy is paramount. It is a short driving distance to all the local attractions, Bakewell, Chatsworth House, Hadden Hall and Matlock Bath, not forgetting walking distance to The Druids Inn and Red Lion pubs, the food and service at the Druids Inn...
