We spent a weekend here, and really enjoyed the shepherd's hut. It was cute and well kitted out (though the floor could have done with a sweep), and in the rain was still very warm and cosy. The local village is really lovely, and the animals on the farm are adorable. The bathroom was a short walk from the hut,... More

Arrived for afternoon tea after a cycle trip thoroughly deserving a big pot of tea and some delicious cake, all with chickens pecking around the floor and friendly cats. Lovely place run by a lovely couple who couldn't have been more friendly. Our room was well equipped and presented with a comfy bed. Breakfast in the morning was high in... More

I booked Bassettwood as a surprise for my husbands birthday. We cycled the Tissington Trail and then went to Bassettwood for a cream tea - it was amazing! Sarah and Brian were fantastic hosts; very friendly and welcoming. We loved wandering round talking to and stroking the animals they have. Our room was clean, comfortable and very well equipped; chocolates... More

A hidden gem. We were travelling along a dirt track, not knowing what to expect when we arrived at the tea-room. We received a warm welcome and the scones were fresh out of the oven! We also had fun meeting the pygmy goats, donkey, pig and farm dog. Well worth a visit.

We are all very sad to have left Bassettwood after a fabulous Easter bank holiday. Wonderful farm stay, where our children were welcomed to help feed the animals and collect the eggs in the morning. When new lambs were born, which was very regular over the weekend, our children were shown the lambs by Brian. Fabulous breakfasts and cream teas;... More

We went for a walk around Tissington in the afternoon, which was a great little quaint town. Back to Bassettwood for a great night's sleep and a lovely homecooked full English the next... More

The second time that I've visited and the welcome offered by this beautiful farm has not diminished in the slightest. We were greeted by the brilliant gang of Pygmy goats nod carried on to find a trio of newly born lambs.

We stumbled on Bassettwood and the Tea Rooms and we were delighted we did. The scones were fresh and delicious as were the accompanying jam and clotted cream. Welcoming and friendly and were lucky enough to be shown the pygmy goats on our departure. If you're after an authentic afternoon tea experience give Bassettwood a go.
