If you are looking for a self catering holiday with an extra special touch - I cannot imagine you finding anywhere better than Blakelow Farm. We have just returned from a week in Candle Cottage; truly the most romantic of these luxury converted properties, which include cottages suitable for anything from one to 4 geusts. The owners have been running Blakelow Farm as holiday accommodation for about 10 years now and they really know how to make a holiday perfect....when you arrive there is a welcome pack with fresh bread, milk, butter, chocolates, biscuits, eggs laid by the hens who live here at Blakelow Farm, and a snifter of sherry in an attractive decanter to tempt your appetite. Kitchen facilities are top quality for those who like to cook in - for those who don't there is comprehensive information about good local pubs and restaurants to visit. In your cottage you'll find a key to a little outhouse which is well stocked with fresh eggs, sausages, bacon(from their own pigs), luxury toiletries, books, DVD's and useful leaflets about local attractions.
There is too much to praise about Blakelow Farm to mention it all here....all I can say is if you are thinking about a self catering holiday in the Peak Districk don't look anywhere else.
