“Friendly hosts”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Stayed here recently in the Rose Room. We arrived in the evening and had a nice welcome.

The hosts Barbara and Allan were friendly and seemed genuinely so, which makes a nice change - she offered to dry our wet clothes when we came back from a walk and gave us tea and cake in a comforable lounge which was kind.

Our room was clean and had the usual hospitality tray although it would have been nice for there to be two hot chocolates to start with and not just the one for us to share as there was two of us and perhaps to have nicer buscuits (maybe shortcake or shortbread). There is a notice on the tray for you ask for more of anything if you need it. The room temperature was a little cool for me even when turning the temperature up but I expect that's probably due to the size of the room. I enjoyed the hardness of the shower although the ensuite was small.

Breakfast was on a shared table (with one other room) which I now realise I dont really like, so will avoid when staying in future bed and breakfast accommodation, as it feels a little awkward. We had fresh fruit which we both enjoyed and breakfast was nicer for me on the second day when I had my eggs scrambled instead of fried as it was a little overdone the first day but I just cut the edges off. :-)

The property is in a nice location with nice views out the window and we ate at the Gate Inn which is only just across the road - I recommend you eat there - we will probably eat there again next time we're in the area.

In conclusion, this is nice place to stay with friendly hosts - I think you would enjoy staying here :-)

Faultless,It is all we look for in a B&B.
Great location
Great service
Great Breakfast.

Lovely views from the garden as well

The Pub over the road ( the Gate Inn) is worth a visit too

We only stayed for one night in the Rose Room, but it was fantastic the room was great with lovely views. We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we arrived, with tea and homemade scones and jam in the garden. Breakfast was great. We would love to go back for longer next time. Thank you very much.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Cowclose Farm. We had a room (Rose Room) upstairs with a US king size bed and attached bathroom. The room was large with lovely linens and everything spotlessly clean. Gorgeous room with beautiful views of the gardens and the farm. Barbara and Allen were very friendly and helpful with several recomendations for dinner. The breakfast was in a downstairs room, often with other visitors which was very nice. Food was delicious. Cowclose is great for touring the Peak District. Actually we had absolutely no complaints and throughly enjoyed our visit.

Loved our stay here. Gorgeous location, lovely garden, beautiful room with lovely soft linen, HUGE bathroom (with bath), delicious breakfast (felt very pampered each morning!), friendly hosts - made the booking process very easy, nice pub 3 minute walk away. Overall a very peaceful stay, will readily recommend to family and friends.

Following four nights in Swallows cottage moved into the B & B for two nights, Rose Room - very spacious and lovely comfortable bed, nice views from the windows on each side of the room, nice spacious lounge for guests, breakfast excellent so much choice and well cooked and presentation excellent, hosts Alan and Barbara very helpful and friendly. Very handy for the Gate Pub over the road where we had dinner on the two evenings and is a very nice country pub with good food. Really enjoyed our stay.

From the minute we arrived to the minute before we left, Barbara and Alan were perfect hosts. Suggestions as to where to visit (our first time in Derbyshire), where to eat (if we had any room after truly delicious and individually selected breakfast) as well as very comfortable immaculate and spacious B&B accommodation. The use of the garage for our bikes was very much appreciated. The location was spot on too - in the High Peaks with most places you would want to visit only a short distance away. And the pub across the Road was a perfect place for dinner in the evening - we could have drink as we didn't have to drive there.
