Top Traveller Review

About the Owner

We have slowly and lovingly restored the family farm back to life - it has taken over ten years, but we have almost finished. We are incredibly proud to have achieved a Five Star Gold Award, and a Breakfast Award for the Bed and Breakfast accommodation which has now been running for over 5 years. We have a wonderful flow of returning guests. Some say its the cooking, others come to admire the views of a working farm, especially during the summer months at harvest time. We are really thrilled with The Duck House conversion, and there is already a list of guests forming who would like to move into it permanently! The Old Tea Room is a superbly appointed wooden chalet conversion which is tucked away from the main farmhouse but sits on the edge of the garden allowing visitors to have that extra bit of privacy. Both properties can be rented out together for larger groups and we can also offer room only in the B&B if that extra bed is needed and the barns are full!

Immaculate and such a treat!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I sadly only stayed for one night at The Lavender Patch but wished we'd had longer. The accommodation is beautiful with such attention given to detail. It was immaculately clean and had many touches that made it feel so special to be there. Everything was of high quality, from the towels, dressing gowns, beautiful decor and furnishings, even the natural lighting felt like had been designed to be 'just right' for the rooms. Everything was over and above what you may expect when staying away. Sally was so lovely and friendly and gave us a warm welcome on arrival, with a cup of tea and a flapjack, and served us a wonderful breakfast the following morning before we set off. The breakfast was outstanding - totally delicious and we were able to choose from a wide range of options. To stay at The Lavender Patch is a real treat for anyone and would be a fantastic option for any special occasion.

Fabulous B & B

  • 5 of 5

Needed to stay in the area for the night. Sally the owner made us so welcome, lots of nice touches like tea and cake on arrival, a marvellous selection of tea and coffee in the room with some very nice biscuits. The quality of the accommodation was superb from the huge comfy bed to the luxurious bathroom. There was a huge choice for breakfast and it was delicious. It was very handy having a lovely guest lounge all to ourselves for the evening and a garden to sit out in. We would definately stay again it was the nicest B & B we have ever stayed in. Thank you Sally we hope to return.

The most wonderful bed & breakfast. Perfect hosts

  • 5 of 5

The third time we have stayed and we cannot wait to go back again. Everything is perfect . The huge bedroom and lovely bathroom plus the dining/lounge area. All beautifully appointed. Sally is the perfect hostess and simply makes you feel at home. The breakfasts are wonderful and it is a great base from which to explore the peak district and surrounds.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at the Lavender patch. The room is perfect, so comfortable, very spacious and perfectly clean. In addition there is the downstairs large room for you only, again spacious and comfortable where we were also served the superb breakfast. It is a farmhouse, but you are not aware of any animals at all and you benefit from the marvellous eggs for breakfast. I cannot recommend this location enough. It is probably the best B&B we have ever stayed at.

Lavender Patch

  • 5 of 5

The Lavender Patch is a wonderfully relaxing and welcoming B&B with spacious, clean and sumptuous rooms, and an excellent host. Breakfast was pretty good too - fresh, beautifully presented, well-cooked and very tasty. I'd definitely recommend for a romantic, quiet get-away.

Simply Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We booked The Duck House for a weekend break with the children and we were so pleased we did. As you pull onto the long drive the Farm House stands beautifully with the Duck House just behind. The Duck House was superbly decorated with beautiful original beams, very clean with everything you need. The patio doors from both the living room and bedroom opened onto a spacious garden with easy access onto the fields for lovely walks. Sally and Charlie couldn't have been more helpful and we were greeted with lovely warm scones on arrival. We enjoyed fishing at the private lake which is also lovely to walk around. There are pubs within walking distance and a Tesco, Aldi and chip shop approx 1 mile away. We found a lovely pub in Rolleston On Dove called 'Jinnie Inn' and 'The Dragon' (next to a canal) in Willington both approx 3 miles away. Both had 'dog friendly' dining areas. Would highly recommend this property, loved everything about it. The Duck House was just lovely. Although this is a dog friendly property, the cleanliness was first class. Will definitely be back! Thank you so much Sally & Charlie!

From the Owner

The farm was inherited over fifteen years ago, and we are the fourth generation to live here. Originally it was one of the biggest dairy farms in Derbyshire. Now however, it is run as an arable farm. The farm is easily located and because we are so central, you can get to various parts of the country really easily which also means you can have a touch of the rural qualities without being off the beaten track. Very accessible to the M1 and M6, and yet you can be in the Peak District within 10 minutes drive.

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended


East Midlands Airport is approximately 20 minutes drive from the farm, just off the A50 and Junction 5. The M1 is south of the farm, junction 24, and access from the M6, junction 15 is west and approximately 30 minutes drive. Hatton & Tutbury train station is a 5 minute drive. There is a fairly decent bus service V1 that stops almost at the bottom of the farm drive every hour. It is recommended that guests have use of a car.


The farm drive is approximately a quarter of a mile long, but it is flat, so walking into the village is a pleasant walk, and to get a morning paper would probably take you about 10 minutes. Tutbury is 3.5 miles. Uttoxeter is 6 miles and is well known for its race course. Castle Donington race track is approx 15/20 mins drive just off the A50. We are in easy reach of The National Trust properties - Kedleston Hall (approx 9 miles) Sudbury Hall (approx 4 miles) and Calke Abbey (approx 15 mile

Further Details:

There is an excellent selection of shops in the village, which include a post office/off licence, Tesco Express, Aldi, Chemist, Doctors Surgery, Optician, Beautician, Hair Dressers, and a variety of takeaways. There are some great food pubs not far from the farm. The Talbot in the village doesn't serve food, but has guest beers.

From the Owner

Incredibly private accommodation and not overlooked at all. The property offers open field views and there is a small enclosed verandah with tables and chairs for guests to use. The lake during the summer months is wonderful, and offers some superb coarse fishing, or if you are feeling a little more keen, open water swimming is allowed. The lake is only a very short walk away from the cottage - literally 100 metres. There is also a lockable shed for bicycles and fishing equipment. The verandah is dog proof and has a gated entrance onto it. The garden is also fenced with a gated entrance onto the cottage driveway.
