“Rural Idyll”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed at The Old Farrowings for a week at the end of July. If you want to get away from everything, and don't mind the odd moo from the neighbouring fields, then this place is for you. We were particularly impressed with the well-stocked kitchen, which had all the essentials that can easily be forgotten - washing-up liquid, kitchen roll, olive oil, etc.

During our stay we made good friends with Otto, who is probably the nicest black lab you could meet (friendly, but not in your face with it), as well as Pegs the chicken (although with hindsight, the bucket labelled "Pegs" could have been for clothes pegs, not chicken feed). The three ducks are a little more self-absorbed, but entertaining nonetheless!

Biggin itself is perfectly located for access to the Southern half of the Peak District - we had short trips out to Buxton, Matlock, Eyam, Castleton, Cromford, Chatsworth, Bakewell, as well as local walking and cycling in Dovedale, and along the Manifold and Tissington trails.

We had a fantastic week and would definitely recommend this holiday to any couple.

Really pleased you had a nice time and glad you managed to make use of the Tissington Trail. We are lucky it is so near! Glad the Indian Runners ducks amused you - I could do with them laying a few more eggs!
Thanks for the review.

“Perfect”
Reviewed April 29, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This property is as nice as it looks in the photos and more. We arrived late but were greated at the gate as we pulled up. The cottage is part of a working sheep farm which adds extra character but we were never awoken by any noise. The pub in the village serves decent pub food but there was everything we needed in the cottage kitchen to make our own food. Don't forget tea bags though! The cottage has a log burning stove with all supplies to make a roaring fire for the living space, while the bedroom has a generous amount of radiators. The property has loads of space for cars and was very well placed for visiting the Miller's Dale walk, Buxton & Bakewell.

“Perfect location, excellent accommodation.....”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The cottage was perfect, from the wood burner to the fluffy towels and little extras like dishwasher tablets and dvds you really couldn't ask for anything more.

We will definately be booking again. We really didn't want to leave.
