“Every ‘excellent’ review given here is truly deserved”
Reviewed November 24, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We stayed in the Creamery Cottage adjacent the main house - Biggin Grange.
The Cottage is a tasteful conversion of a historic building and finished to an extremely high standard. You’ll find quality fixtures and fittings throughout, excellent shower, comfortable sofa and a bed that feels like you are sleeping on a cloud.

The location is perfect – quiet and secluded without feeling remote, with stunning views at the back of the Cottage of the Dale and an amazing night sky with no light pollution for star gazing. If you need it Wi-fi is easy to connect to and we found it fast.
Jane at Biggin Grange was an excellent host. She gave us a warm welcome and baked lovely cookies to go with tea when we arrived.

You can access Biggin Dale from the driveway of the Grange and walk to Hartington or further afield. Biggin Hall is just a short walk away and the five course meal we had there was excellent for only £25 per head. The wine list was great and most bottles approx. £15 representing excellent value. The Waterloo pub next door also has cooked food and guest beers. Again excellent value.

All in all this was a great find and we will be back early in the new year for a longer stay.

It was really nice to meet you both and thank you very much for taking the time to write a review of Courtyard Creamery. I am so glad you had a nice weekend and managed to sample both Biggin Hall and The Waterloo Inn in the village - saves cooking ....! Hopefully see you again if you need to escape from the City! Jane

I am so pleased you had a nice couple of days at Biggin Grange and the weather was good to let you pedal your way down the Tissington Trail. Thank you for your nice review and glad you liked the cake. I think it is watching The Great British Bake Off it tends to inspire me even though the cakes are much more basic than the TV! When you feel like recharging your batteries again do come back and see us. Jane

Thank you for your kind words and I am glad you have returned to recharge your batteries though judging by the amount of walking and cycling you did I'm not sure how much rest you had! Looking forward to seeing you both next year and thank you for your helpful advice about the cottage. I love feedback from guests!

“A hidden gem....great find”
Reviewed September 28, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Hi Jane and Richard
Having previously stayed last year it was great to come back again and you made us so welcome.. thankyou :-) our stay was truly the best and so so relaxing. We loved the extra touches you have made since last year.
The boutique accommodation is a superb standard and very rural with wonderful scenery and tranquility of the Dale. The village of Hartington is very close and for food we visited the Devonshire Arms, in nearby Hurdlow the excellent and very reasonably priced Royal Oak, without not forgetting the best fish and chips in Ashbourne - Market Place. There is also a butchery close to the cottages Stanedge Grange can highly recommend they open the latter days of the week.
Jane is very welcoming and has made some delightful personal touches to the accommodation offered. if you want to get away from it all this the place to stay. We hired bikes and went on the Tissington and High Peak Trail, the market town of Buxton is only 15 minutes drive....if you love tearooms you have to visit Over Haddon and the Garden Tea Room - all made by the owners from their kitchen

Thanks again Jane and we will be booking again for next year....take care

It is lovely when guests return and I am glad you had another good week. There is so much to do in this area and you certainly covered some ground - well done! I am always trying to improve the cottages and pleased you could notice some changes. Also, so pleased you discovered the fish and chips run by the crazy Greeks - my children love it! Jane
