13 of us stayed at Haddon Grove 10 in the Farmhouse and 3 in one of the cottages all of us had a very enjoyable time, the bottles of Cava and chocolates that had been left for our arrival were a nice touch.
The farmhouse was very well equipped and had been set up for all of us to eat together at mealtimes. The Christmas Turkey was cooked in the oven of the other cottage but as the properties are all close to each other this did not cause a problem.
The bedrooms in both the properties were spacious and have good storage facilities the only slight negative is that there is no shower attachment in the Farmhouse family bathroom however as there are 2 other shower rooms this is not a major problem.
We made use of all the facilities in the leisure centre the pool was very popular with the younger members of the group, we borrowed books, dvd's and games all of which helped to keep us all entertained. The location of the cottages is good just outside Bakewell during our stay we visited Chatsworth house and can heartily recommend the produce from the Farm shop.
None of us would hesitate to stay here again if we are visiting the Peak District
