Just back from a short break at Brow Farm Cottage. One of the nicest places we have stayed. Spotlessly clean, fabulous views, and very welcoming hosts. Great location for country walks yet easy access to Manchester too. The whole family, dogs included, enjoyed our stay and hope to return one day.
Second visit and still as thrilled. Excellent facility in a beautiful setting. Very welcoming hosts who make you feel comfortable right from the start. Love the animals, especially the chickens and their antics. Walks for all abilities and views to get lost in. Can't wait to return.
Brow farm is a very special place. It has everything one needs for a relaxing wonderful break and Cath & David are helpful but unintrosive. The welcoming pack was lovely and Toby enjoyed his welcoming letter and jar of treats. Thank you
I booked and stayed hear with my family and my parents and Brow Farm is just amazing.
Cath and David are warm, friendly and welcoming hosts who go out of their way to ensure you have everything you need and enjoy your stay.
We took our dog who was also given a great welcome with treats, towels, blankets and bowls for her on our arrival.
The cottage is well located to explore the Peak District and is spotlessly clean with a warm homely feel. My 8 year old daughter loved feeding the goats and enjoyed seeing the rabbits and other animals on the farm.
Cath’s homemade cake is worth the visit alone - thank you Cath and David for an amazing New Year stay
A well equipped cosy cottage in a great location for exploring all the area has to offer. Our dogs were made very welcome and the enclosed lawn area straight from the back door was a great bonus.
Firstly a great thank you to the hosts, Cath and David for our much needed 3 day break. Both on hand if you need them, and happy to chat, yet not intrusive. A freshly baked Victorian sponge, fresh farm eggs as well as coffee, tea and milk, was very much appreciated after a long drive.
The property is situated on the one side of a valley, situated within a 10 minute walk from small town of New Mills. Here you will find a good mix of local shops,(Potts Bakery is fantastic) a good mix of pubs, and a train station offering a direct link into Manchester for those wanting to shop.(which we did not do, as we wanted to get away from it all)
The cottage is very modern inside, well equipped for those who want to cook like ourselves. The cottage is very clean, well laid out and has a great homely feel. The showers were just what the doctor ordered after a long days walk, and very relaxing.
If you have kids, they will be greatly entertained as Cath and David are happy for you to explore the farm with access to all areas. Sheep, Goats, Horses, Guinea Pigs, Chickens, Rabbits who are happy to be petted. Much also to the amusement of my wife. Just up from the farm there is also a public park which is well worth a visit, and will keep young ones amused.
We very much enjoyed the walk from the farm to Hayfield along the Sett Valley trail. 2.5 miles of easy walking each way. We stopped for lunch at the highly recommended 'Pack Horse Inn.'
Just a 5 minute walk away is the Millennium Walkway which is elevated over the river and shows off the old mills. Very peaceful now, and a well preserved, interesting site.
Buxton is around an eight mile drive. Make sure you go via Whaley Bridge which gives a very scenic drive over the Peaks. When in Buxton, Poole's Cavern was a great find and very educational.
We will definitely be back next year as there is so much we didn't get do.
Thanks again Cath and David, hope to be seeing you again soon.
Lee, Cath, Ella and Dan.
