“Enjoyable, comfortable stay in idyllic surroundings”
Reviewed May 31, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Cozy and comfortable cottage in beautiful countryside. Ideal for exploring the Peak District and beyond. Anna was very welcoming and friendly and the hamper was a lovely touch (wonderful home-made cake!). Would love to come back another time.

“Beautiful cottage in a stunning area”
Reviewed January 19, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

The cow shed is a lovely, cosy little cottage with everything that you could want from a short break. It's very well decorated and stocked throughout. Matlock is a short drive away and the Peaks are on your doorstep, making the location ideal.

A huge thank you for our perfect getaway and also for the hamper of food, it was delightful! We'll definitely be back!

“Highly recommended cosy cottage”
Reviewed December 2, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

What a wonderful place to stay, away from the hustle and bustle, down a little country lane with no street lights, just the light of the stars and moon, but within reach of amazing countryside, interesting Industrial History, great cycle tracks on disused railways, villages, small towns and Nottingham and Sheffield if you need a city. Anna and her husband have created a lovely space for visitors. It's compact but doesn't feel small. A perfect bathroom, a cosy bedroom and a great living space complete with log burner. A great place to recharge the batteries. We'd love to come back very soon. Thank you.

“Perfect little cottage!”
Reviewed August 10, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a lovely weekend here and could ask for a nicer place to stay. The cottage was perfect, really nicely furnished and good facilities and the hamper on arrival was a very nice touch. We hope to return soon!

Reviewed July 25, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Spent a lovely peaceful weekend in The Cowshed. We were welcomed with a hamper of local produce on arrival, which was delicious
It is a perfect retreat, beautifully decorated, well equipped and very cosy. It is easy to get to nearby attractions, pubs etc.
The Shepherds Hut which is Iocated in secluded corner of the farm also looks well worth a visit if you are looking for a glamping experience.

“amazing stay, would definately recommend”
Reviewed July 16, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

great stay, was very relaxed, choose this stay for a weekend as I was recommended and I would definitely pass on the recommendation. the shepherd's hut is in a great location a lot of outdoor space for walks and is great for a quite weekend away. its so cosy inside the kitchen/lounge is amazing. just amazing. I'm use to my exotic weekends away but when I discovered this place I definitely do prefer a simple quiet weekend away. 10 out of 10.

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed February 18, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

If you want to spend some time getting away from it all in the area of Matlock then look no further, you have now found your perfect romantic hideaway. The cow shed is beautiful, very quirky and cleverly converted and done out to the highest standard. Everything about this place is just great, from the decor to the lovely welcome basket that greets you upon arrival. Everything has been thought about here to make your time at The cow shed home from home. The kitchen is lovely, compact and open plan with every utensil needed if cooking, otherwise so many good eating places in both Tansley, Matlock Bath and Matlock too. A cosy lounge area around a roaring log fire is just what you need after a day out and about. The bedroom although small, is just the place to relax in a comfy kingsize bed, peace and quiet down a country lane, birds singing early morning and sun shining through the trees. Start the day in the modern bathroom with a great shower and the nicest smelling towels ever!
So do you still want to stay in a tranquil setting with all mod cons considered?? Book The Cow shed today, you won't be disappointed. Enjoy it and the Peak district delights are out there waiting for you. It's a complete gem!
