“Breathtaking beauty and comfort all in one place.”
Reviewed May 9, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The cottage is absolutely adorable, the view of the surrounding mountains is breathtaking, everything was neat and tidy and the beds are comfortable. I was not able to explore the surrounding area but what I saw made me want to come back as soon as possible and get to see all the beauty of the Kinder Scout area. The hosts are extremely friendly and welcoming even offering lots of information on things to do in the area, you can tell that they are passionate about living as near to nature as they can.

“Excellent easy getaway”
Reviewed February 19, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Great location, were able to time arrival to perfection and go via the Chinese takeaway at The Grouse (Birch Vale). James was great, the cottage was lovely and well stocked (we can recommend both the eggs and the honey), really good view of the night sky and excellent location for either going up Kinder Scout or the walk round the reservoir (which wasn't on our Dark Peak hiking map but is definitely worth it even in the ice cold of February). Only improvement? Towels could do with a bit of softening up (but that may have been because we were out of season)

“A perfect peaceful getaway”
Reviewed January 9, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

My husband and I, plus some friends, have just returned from a wonderful stay at Farland's cottage. This place is ideal if you are looking to get away from it all and be amongst some of the most stunning scenery imaginable.
The cottage is well equipped - we stayed in to cook on NYE and found everything we needed in the kitchen. The beds are comfortable and the cottage is warm and cosy with plenty of firewood supplied by James to keep us going (along with eggs from his chickens!). There was also plenty of hot water and a powerful shower which was very much needed after our trek up to Kinder Scout (thanks both :-) )
It's a beautiful place and James & Sarah are the perfect hosts. To see what James has achieved in his garden and to see his eco friendly approach to running the cottage is inspirational and we shall definitely be returning soon!
There is plenty of information provided in advance (and even more when you arrive) in terms of places to eat, walks (guided by James or not) and other attractions. We ate at a local pub on the first night (a 10 minute car journey and great food at the Lamb) - but the place is so peaceful that we were reluctant to venture too far from the peace and comfort of our immediate surroundings.
Would definitely recommend!

“Weekend of splendid rural isolation”
Reviewed October 26, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

With the grandparents looking after our children, my wife and I had the chance to spend a few days walking in the Dark Peak. The cottage was an excellent base for this, being so close to Kinder Reservoir and the surrounding hills. James made us feel very welcome, and the coal fire soon had the cottage nice and toasty. The cottage had everything we needed at the end of a long day in the hills (i.e a hot bath and a comfortable bed!) we will come again hopefully and bring the children next time as the second bedroom is plenty big enough for them.

“Pleasant cottage”
Reviewed June 24, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The cottage was a very pleasant short stay for a wedding in Upper House. It is well provisioned (dvds, kitchen utensils, games, books, guides) and comfortable. The location is good for access to good walks. About a 25 minute walk into town, or a short drive. Twin and double beds a good option. Owner extremely friendly and helpful. Nice grounds.

“Perfect location for a Peak District weekend”
Reviewed June 21, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We wanted somewhere near Glossop for a weekend away from London. Farlands Cottage ticked all the boxes of picturesque surroundings, on the edge of the village, but yet tucked quietly away, with only the birds to disturb us.

James gave us heaps of information before we arrived, essential stuff like directions & how to get a phone signal, but also that we could pre-order eggs, fresh from his chickens! The information provided in the cottage is like a mini-tourist office for Hayfield and the Peak, with everything from walking routes, to the best pub meals and cake shops - of which we sampled and agreed with!

On arrival James was on hand to conduct a guide around the cottage (and the eggs), helpfully pointing out that it would be much colder than London and we'd probably be best to leave the heating on, even if we made use of the basket of logs for the open-fire. He was right!

Having ruled out alternative accomodation on the grounds of reports of uncomfortable beds, I can confidently say that, even after a 5-hour hike to Kinder Falls and back, you'll sleep well here. We found everything we needed in the kitchen for a great Sunday breakfast - with a fresh supply of eggs and our boys loved visiting the hens and playing football on the substantial lawn.

Even though the cottage is next door to the owners we had complete privacy and both James & Sarah were very friendly, hospitable and more than tolerant of all our boys' questions.
