Baslow Easter Break

  • 5 of 5

Great location to walk into Chatsworth grounds. (A bit of a walk to get there but worth it). Great location for exploring Bakewell, Matlock, Baslow, Chatsworth, and Litton. Lots of walks near by. Great day at Monstral trail on the bikes.

The house is beautiful. Very clean, well equipped and lovely rooms. Lots of space inside and also outside for BBQ's, dog walking etc.

Sarah was very accommodating and helpful and could not have been a better host. (Thank you for the welcome pack).

All-in-all a great home from home to stay at.

Gorgeous cottage in perfect settings

  • 5 of 5

Arrived to the gorgeous cottage, little selection of drinks and snacks left for us. Lovely views of the hills. Cottage was very comfortable for our family of 5 adults one baby and two dogs. There’s some lovely villages, pubs and walks in the immediate area also. Have already discussed us all visiting again.

Beautiful location and charming house

  • 5 of 5

We went to the peaks for a walking and activity break. The barn is situated overlooking some beautiful peak district hills. It's a great base to explore the countryside and a lovely place to go home to in the evening. Would highly recommend!

Great accommodation in a lovely location

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house with far reaching views over the moors. We were blessed with good weather which made us really appreciate the garden and outside space. The house was very clean, tidy and well presented and it was in a great location for visiting Chatsworth House, Bakewell and Matlock, along with all the other delights that Derbyshire has to offer.

I've given it 4 stars as the fridge in the kitchen was very small considering the house could hold up to 8 people and we struggled for space and the sofa bed was uncomfortable to sit on and could possibly do with a bit of a revamp.

Also we couldn't get the tumble dryer to dry our towels but this could have been used error!

The owner's dogs came to visit us most days which, as a dog loving family, we didn't mind but I'm not sure if this would be a negative if you didn't like dogs!

All in all though, a lovely cottage which I would recommend to families.

Very well appointed and comfortable cottage in a good location

  • 4 of 5

The cottage has been thoughtfully prepared with good kitchen equipment, freeview TV, bathrobes and a hairdryer in the main bedroom, great sheets and lots of games etc. Our stay was very comfortable and visiting Chatsworth was incredibly easy. Only criticism would be the internet which didn't work!
