We spent a week in Dove Dottage, which is one of the cottages on Church Dale farm. We had a great week, the accommodation was excellent and the hospitality was also very good. The surrounding area is very beautiful and you have easy access to a number of different activities. We will be looking to make future visits to this... More

This time we stayed at Derwent Cottage which sleeps 4 - last year we stayed at Dove Cottage which sleeps 3. Churchdale Farm is conveniently placed for so many attractions. Both times we've stayed we've not had to drive much because everything worth seeing is nearby. Churchdale Farm Cottages are set in a peaceful place with lots of animals. It... More

We stayed in Dove Cottage with our 4 year old daughter for a week over the Easter holidays. What can I say, we had a fantastic week, the cottage was beautiful, very clean and comfortable. We loved the surrounding area and watching the lambs in the fields by the cottage. The cottage was ideally situated. The surrounding area is so... More

For our Easter break with our 4-year-old son we were looking for a combination of peaceful country retreat and a wide range of activities within easy driving distance. We found the ideal combination in Churchdale Farm. The Farm is a perfect central and peaceful location from which to explore all that the Peak District has to offer. If you do... More

We returned to Churchdale having visited last year. We stayed with our friends in Derwent Cottage which is comfortable, well equipped and immaculately maintained. The location is quiet yet close enough to the local pubs that we could avoid cooking. The location, in the middle of the peak district, and with the Monsal Trail passing the end of the drive... More

This was our third stay in Dove Cottage at Churchdale Farm. The cottage is clean, comfortable and well equipped. Waiting for us on arrival was a much appreciated Bakewell Pudding. It's in a quiet location, and convenient for exploring this part of the Peak District. There is plentiful information on places to visit as well as pubs and restaurants. For... More

This has been our third stay - and Wye Cottage was as good and comfortable as ever. The cottage is well equipped and there is good information about places to visit, and sound information about restaurants/pubs. The cottages are very close to the Monsal Trail and so it is possible to walk to Bakewell, Tideswell, Cheedale and many other places,... More

Lovely property to stay as a small family - very spacious and comfortable - we felt very much at home right from the start. The cottage was well equipt for all our needs - event a travel cot! The owner was very hospitable but not overbearing at all. I see someone else mentioned Henrietta the hen - very eager to... More

The location of these cottages is sublime. It's a good distance from the main road so you don't really hear any traffic. It's amazing how loud the sound of chewing sheep can seem when you're somewhere so peaceful. There are animals all around - sheep, horses, chickens, cows, and if your want something more exotic, there are water buffalo the... More

We stayed at Churchdale Farm for two weeks in July. It was our first visit to the Peak District. We had a lovely holiday! Our hosts were very welcoming. The cottage was well equiped with all mod cons and cosy for relaxing. We had neighbours in adjoining cottages but there was a lot of privacy. We used our picnic table... More
