“Derbyshire Delights”
Reviewed March 18, 2011

Jan and Glyn's delightful retreat just south of Ashbourne is a must for people who want that extra bit of quality when looking for a nice relaxing stay. Their hospitality is second to none and home made jam from the orchard to compliment the scones that greet your arrival make it a little bit special.
Highly recommended.

Oldfields Farm is a wonderful place set in a fantastic location. The hosts Jan & Glynn are very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble, the service is second to none. We stayed in the Handels Muse and it was very comfortable and spotless a real home from home. The small touches at Oldfields Farm really make this place extra special and stands out from other B&B's not just the fantastic hosts, the cream tea on arrival, rose petals on the bed and the sumptuous breakfasts (try both the continental & cooked they are superb) all these touches added up to make our stay an extra special one and we would recommend to all!

A beautiful location and a beautiful cottage! The owners were very welcoming and extremely helpful. There is lots to do in the local area and plenty of nice places to eat. We would love to stay here again!

Jan and Glyn were wonderfull hosts. The property itself is of a very high standard set in their own 11 acres of grounds providing many beautiful walks. Plenty of nice restaurants in nearby Ashbourne and a friendly good value pub in the local village.

My partner and I had a wonderful romantic evening sharing a bottle of champagne in the jacuzzi. Highly recommended!

Oakfields Farm is a beautiful place for a peaceful break. The surrounding area is breathtaking and if peace and quiet is what you want,this is it. The accomodation is second to none,it is obvious that Jan,the owner,has put alot of time and thought into it and it is literally an extention of her own beautiful home. Gorgeous bedding and lots of lovely touches like soap and hand cream,scones,butter and homemade jam on arrival as well as a welcome pack of free range eggs,milk,tea,coffee etc.Information pack,books magazines,and lots of other things you only have to ask for.
Jan is a wealth of local information and she get's the balance exactly right with regards to being there and helpful and not being obtrusive.We had a beautiful evening walk,one of many,abley guided by Tia-Maria,thier gorgeous Setter,who knew exactly where to go!
Derbyshire is wonderful with lots to do.I would highly reccommend a visit to Eyam(the Plague Village) and Tissington Village and Hall as well as the usual Chatsworth House.
My husband and I will definately be going back and I can see Oakfields Farm becoming an annual 'recharge the batteries' for us.
I cannot recommend it highly enough.What a gem of a place! Linda and Allan Smith.
