Support service was excellent. We had one minor problem but it was quickly rectified by Linda who was already on site.
The house had ample space for our party. We particularly appreciated being able to seat 10, comfortably around the dining table. The front bedrooms were luxurious with fabulous country views.
Rural setting. Garden big enough for childrens games. There no amenities within easy walking distance. Wirksworth is 10 minutes in the car and has shops, pubs, cafes and a micro brewery.
We loved the house.
We were disappointed to find that the "pub within a mile" had in fact closed down.
Lovely location,great views,delicious cake on arrival.

Lovely location,great views and sunsets. Homemade cake went down a treat on arrival.
Plenty of room for 9 of us to spread out.Laundry room an asset.
Some of the ensuites require updating and the boiler above one of the master bedrooms made an awful noise-we had to switch it off overnight.
Cleanliness could have been better in the kitchen (oven/cutlery drawers etc)
Some chairs need replacing in dining room and lighting dim in the lounge for reading.Bigger tv would be good.
Overall a wonderful place to stay -just needs a bit of tweaking!
Games room useful but table tennis table and equipment ready for replacing.
A fantastic well furnished farmhouse which was extremely comfort

I booked on the internet and everything was straightforward. The house was amazing - it felt like home and it was so well equipped especially the kitchen. The rooms were spacious and the beds very comfortable. It is set in a lovely part of Derbyshire with lots to see and do! We had the farmhouse for a long weekend so that we were able to attend a wedding at Shottle Hall. There were about 13 of us for lunch on Sunday and we managed to eat around the dining table.
When we arrived a tray was set for tea and a sponge cake left for us to enjoy! A lovely touch! We had use of the games room which we took advantage of on Sunday and the fact that we could have the use of a log fire! Brilliant!
The only downside was that the oven door didn't shut properly. We were told to park at the back but we couldn't get there direct from the house - we had to go through the boiler room! I would recommend that there are some spare bulbs!
My grand daughter was being pulled up through the hallway on her trunkie and said it was the best day of her life!!!
I would recommend the accomodation to anyone and hope that we can go back one day!

Agood property with plenty of crockery, saucepans and dishes etc. Location quite remote - we had snowy weather and slippery access to property, although our 4-wheel drive vehicles were very useful! T.V. was a bit small and the lighting in the lounge was poor. All in all a good holiday in a lovely property for a family.

The house was lovely and very spacious. There was tea, biscuits and homemade cake provided for us which was very welcome after our long drives there. The shared games room wit the other cottages on site was fun, although not as well-maintained as the house. The location was good as, although this house is in the country the roads were good and it was easy to find. Our only complaint was that we had a little difficulty getting into the house due to a faulty lock, poor outside lighting and unclear instructions. However, this was a very minor issue which was quickly resolved and did not prevent us having a lovely weekend.
