We were lucky enough to stay in the cottage for 4 nights. A great location for plenty of walking from the door either to Dovedale or across to The Manifold Way. Great hosts and a wonderful reception from Hatty and Gem. We can only support what previous reviewers have said. The snow of the last couple of days only added to the excitement.

Wow! Sue, firstly, I apologise it has taken me months to write this review, which by no means reflects our feelings about just how wonderful our stay was. We stayed at Beechenhill for two blissful weeks over our anniversary, Winter 2012. What a stay. I trawled through thousands of little cottages before discovering Beechenhill Cottage, which stood out because of a few reasons:

1. You have winter cottage essentials, like a lovely woodburning stove, induction hob to cook on, cosy, kutchy furnishings you can snuggle up in, homely touches, lovely pristinely clean sheets and a super comfy bed
2. You are in the middle of nowhere, and can literally walk out your front door onto fields and out into the open, no fences, no boundaries, just free to roam...the window in the lounge looks out over all this so you wake up in the morning to breakfast with a real, spectacular view that just relaxes you before you have even been there 5 minutes....
3. You are completely private. You are on Beechenhill Farm, but this little cottage is tucked away round the side, not overlooked, and Sue & her family have perfected that art of being totally discreet and letting their guests have their privacy and get on with things. I was quite amazed how even when I had ordered some food from the farm, it was just discreetly left outside the door for us, as was a delivery of flowers on our anniversary morning. Personally, that really makes a difference! And as Sue & co are in the main house, you can pop round to get food or ask for anything if you do need it.
4. You are in the middle of nowhere, but yet you have access to the DELICIOUS organic farm produce - eggs, milk (lovely milk!), organic meats, and breakfast goodies, as well as ready made meals made with the local ingredients. Local supermarkets also deliver there.
5. You are fifteen/twenty mins walk/5 or 10 minute drive from the FABULOUS and I mean FABULOUS local gastropub, the George, which should be nominated as a national treasure...beautiful locally produced food, roaring fire, and a rather adorable black Labrador called Phoebe, who owns the place (!)...oh and some of the best ales according to my husband!
6. If all this is not enough, you have the optional extra of hot-tubbing 'a deux' in the wonderful little hot tub and cave at the end of the garden. With the stars above you, in a boiling little hot tub, some bubbly and your favourite companion, on a cold winter's night, you can come up with some life changing thoughts and ideas, trust me!

So that's all folks - what more do you need. One slight little thing - I think over winter as with most country cottages you can get a little smell of damp, mainly in the bathroom, but the roaring fire and everything warming through deals with that. Bonnes vacances.

Thank you so much for such a thoughtful and detailed review. It is wonderful when our guests stay for two weeks and really try everything. We certainly agree with your opinion about the George, we simply can't manufacture enough special occasions to celebrate there!
Your clever nose detected a tiny leak! That was the slightly damp smell- all fixed now, phew!
Well, the hot tub is still here, steamy, sparky and starry, waiting for your return! x

We stayed at Beechenhill for 2 nights in March. The location is fantastic if you're looking for a peaceful retreat and love walking. Walks from the door and close to Dovedale. Fresh milk was provided in the room, and lovely homemade flapjack. The breakfast was amazing, the only downside was I missed the oatcakes on the second day! We will definitely return on our next trip to the Peak District. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

A beautiful farm in the Peak District with stunning views. We (family of 4) stayed in both of the b&b rooms and so we also had the sole use of the cosy sitting room. The rooms are warm, comfortable and there is beautiful artwork on the walls. We stayed for two nights and both mornings were treated to a delicious breakfast of porridge and then traditional English for the kids and Swedish smoked trout for us. It is in good location for walking, which we did on both of the days we stayed there. Would definitely recommend this for anyone who loves the peak district.

Stayed for a short four day break at Beechenhill cottage. This well equipped, cosy and intimate cottage was perfect in every way. It is part of a working farm above Ilam and is in beautiful countryside. It is ideal for 2 with a incredible views across the fields and hills.
It's greatest point is the peace and quiet. It was so relaxing that time seemed to stand still.
The cottage is a detached former stallion pen and has all modern comforts - the attention to detail is good and it has additional benefits of central heating and modern appliances.
It is close to Dovedale and there are fantastic walks from the door of the cottage. All in all, this is a real find and we would recommend Beechenhill cottage to all.
We really enjoyed our stay here and will return soon.
