“A truly amazing place to be... will come again real soon!!!”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

I decided to book Dannah farm, the Grand Canary room for my 1st year anniversary. No doubt this was the best place to be in to spend with my beloved wife. We arrived just slightly early than scheduled time. We drove past private roads and got to the entrance of the farm. There was many parking space available and we were happily greeted and told to come in the reception area. The lady owner was extremely helpful and welcoming, we waited in the dry cosy and well decorated sitting area. Shortly after we were told our room was ready, we didn't want to get too excited after seeing the sitting room.

As we were directed to the room, we were literally lost for words, it was like a room just as u would dream of. The farm had dogs and cats running around in the court yard. There was a massive fish tank that which was uniquely designed made of bricks.

The room was split Into two floors. The top floor had the master bed with an en-suite with two single sofa chairs. The room was very spacious and carpeted with a Tv in the room. The en-suite had the toilet and a power shower and also a spa bath. The downstairs had another bathroom which comprised of a round bath tub, a standard shower and toilet. Downstairs was also carpeted and very spacious with a nice sitting area. It also had a tv with for sofa chair, sofas, blue ray and DVD player. The garden was downstairs with high fences for privacy. It had a patio set with the hot tub with roof over. There were lovely lamps surrounding it. Parking was availed round the back next to the suite.

Breakfast was amazing, a variety, freshly cooked at our choi e. Very quite at night and acres of land. The only downfall about the room was that my wife suffered from itchiness for a good month which she claimed were from the sheets, however I was completely fine. There were a wide variety of DVDs available to me from the sitting area. There are pubs and shops near bye for food for lunch and dinner. Would give 5 star and defo will go again very soon!! (Hopefully on my second anniversary).

A truly fabulous bed and breakfast, on arrival, we were give a lovely welcome by the owners and given home made biscuits, cakes and fresh coffee. We stayed in the studio hide away, which is a beautiful, private room with luxurious soft furnishings and best of all a hot tub, which, even in november was lovely and warm. The bed was really comfy which you got to via a lovely spiral stair case. An absolutely fab nights sleep, did'nt want to get out of bed the following morning. Breakfast was an absolute treat, served with a choice of home made bread, by the lovely farmer. All the staff were really friendly. If you want a truly romantic, private and trouble free stay, Dannah farm is the place to stay. Can't wait until our next stay.

Room Tip: All the rooms are fab

Amazing experience from start to finish. Stayed in the Eccles room. My boyfriend and I were blown away by everything.

Stunning, quirky bedroom with massive comfy bed, cosy sofa and good tv, DVD and iPod dock as well as a breathtaking view. Lovely changing room with cool decor, big wardrobe, great dressing table and comfy seat. Bathroom wow!!! Giant shower with bodyjets, massive jacuzzi bath (proper jacuzzi with full power jets) and lovely sauna for two.

Booked the overnight indulgence package so we had bubbly on arrival, a huge supper platter with home made bread which was delicious and an amazing breakfast!

Staff were adorable and really helpful.

This package was very good value for the standard of the room and the extras which were included.

We will definitely return!!

Thank you for a great stay Dannah Farm

We had a beautiful suite with a Kingsize bed, a sitting and changing area with our own private sauna( for 2) spa bath ( for 2) and a large shower area with jets. The views were stunning, very relaxing and quiet and radiators lovely and warm all day. The farmhouse breakfast was excellent . If you want anything different you just need to ask and they will do it. The bacon was delicious best I have tasted! And I loved the brown sauce! We really enjoyed our stay there and would recommend it. ( I already have) !
We managed to get a good deal on a last minute booking.

We stayed here on our honeymoon and I paid the high price for it because I wanted somewhere really special and luxurious in the middle of the countryside. This seemed to fit the bill and the reviews on here were great so I booked it.

When we arrived we hadn't realised they needed 24hrs for a platter and we were quite tired and didn't fancy going out but with the owner needing to go out I felt like I was putting them out a bit so we opted not to bother (good job once we saw how much they were) but they did bring us fresh coffee (which was really good) and some warm homemade cakes so we ate those as we sat down and read the rule book (which was a downside - fees and rules to stop you bringing your own wine) then headed out for dinner at a nearby pub in Shottle which was really nice.

The room was very nice, we had the Red Room and it was very romantic. The bath and shower were amazing and the bed really comfortable. We had an ipod docking digital radio and a coffee machine with cartidges and it was really nice.

The breakfast was gorgeous, homemade bread and more food than you could manage but great if you're wanting to go out for a long walk. The honesty boxes for the drinks around the farm were a nice touch and it was nice to be left to it.

Downsides however were that for the amount we paid we would've expected that anything we wanted would be fine - for example wanting to bring your own drinks or staying in your room all day. On our first morning we felt a bit hussled out so they could clean the room and we were on edge as we sneaked some of our wedding champagne in case they found out and charged us the fees shown in the rule book. I had mentioned in the email when I booked that it was our honeymoon and I wanted it to be special - knowing that some people on here had been given complimentary wine but we were not given that.

Overall I think if it charged accordingly we would definitely go back as if you pay for what you are getting you are not disappointed, we just expected 5 star and that isn't quite what we got.

(also if you make a trip out for food avoid the chinese restaurant in Belper! floaty bits in the water I'll say no more!)

Room Tip: We had the red room which is great for a romantic break

The farm house looks nothing from the outside but the rooms are very homely, money has been spent on the bathrooms and fittings , but if you pay nearly £200.00 a night you need the ambience to justify this price.The breakfast as you would expect is excellent but i am afraid that we will not visit again.

Nice remote working farm. Accomodation acceptable, but that is the point its too expensive. A boutique hotel it is not yet the price suggests it is. May use again as accomodation in this remote area is limited.
