“A perfect short-break”
Reviewed September 13, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We've just had a 3 night short-break at The Old Farmhouse and it was absolutely brill! The cottage is comfortable, cosy and quirky and Shelley, the owner, is friendly and helpful.

This just reiterates what other reviewers have said I know, but it's all true! The surrounding countryside is pretty majestic and the cottage is perfectly situated for visiting Chatsworth House (and if you're in the area, that's essential - it's glorious!). Other pretty locations are within easy reach too, and my husband was happy to discover good walks from the cottage itself (I prefer to stay in with a pot of tea and a book....).

All in all we were very happy short-breakers and fully intend to go again next year, hopefully when the Chatsworth Estate is in its full autumn glory.

“Cosy, homely cottage with character in peaceful location”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We received a warm welcome. Loved staying in this cottage for a long weekend break. It had character. very homely and everything we needed for our stay. Set in the middle of the country side, so quiet and peaceful, but not too far away from various attractions. Cannot wait to go back for longer next time.
