We stayed at this cottage for a long weekend break with our friends and their little lad (2)...to celebrate a 48th birthday. From the moment we met Shelley she made us feel wonderfully welcome. The cottage was perfect...it was very inviting, cosy, beautifully warm and extremely quiet and well equipped. We totally relaxed during our stay. There were lambs and chickens to see and Shelley made it extra special by letting us feeds the lambs that had just just been born...which the little lad loved. You will not be disappointed at all staying at this cottage...if u are after a peaceful relaxing break.
Stayed for new years, house is lovely, full of character and charm, log burner was brilliant. Not far from Matlock or anywhere else really in the Peak District. House was warm, had everything we needed, even had a Christmas Tree up and the owners left us a bottle of Champagne to see the new year in with. Owners were very approachable and helpful without being on top of us. Fully recommend, and will stay again.
Lovely peaceful setting and also allow dogs which is a bonus. Spacious cottage and well equipped. Log burner makes for a very cosy feel. Owners are extremely helpful and friendly.
Had a lovely time in Derbyshire.The cottage was great lovely and warm and everything we needed.Lovely walks up back lane through the wood my 2 wee dogs loved it too.
Can only say good things about the old farmhouse, very old fashioned but still has most of the mod cons and essentials you need (and more than your average holiday let) Dog friendly was a bonus for us too.
Shelley, the owner, very friendly and helpful. The location is superb, very peaceful and some great walks (Yes I did go down to the Brook and my legs still hurt!, but it was worth it)
Wifi was a bit iffy but sure this will be resolved as owner did explain. It was actually quite nice to be cut off from wifi for a change to be honest, phone signal not great but did actualy get 4G.
Will certainly be going back one day I hope, thankyou for making us feel welcome

Great cosy character and functional cottage, in a lovely part of the country.
wonderful farmer owners, (Steve & Shelley) who were very helpful, but also allowed for privacy.
definitely recommend a stay at The Old Farmhouse.
My 8 yr old loved collecting fresh eggs with the owner shelley, and they tasted great! we even made cakes with them to share with the owners.
You are close to beautiful attractions,- Treak cavern at castletown, also matlock cable carts, and cave, monsal cycle trail near bakewell which was brilliant!, to mention a few.
Only slight down fall for us at the cottage was that the shower wasn't as powerful as we would have liked, but certainly shouldn't put anyone or any family staying at this tranquil holiday cottage.:)
