About the property

The Cowshed at Cop Farm, Peak Forest 2 NIGHTS FROM £1000 - Peaceful Location Situated 1 Mile From The Village Pub

Property has en suite in the master bedroom and a main bathroom. A fully fitted kitchen including Rangemaster range cooker. Large oak table and chairs seating 10 in dining room. 2 further cloak rooms on ground floor - 1 with shower. A hot tub that seats 6 people will be available from July 2015. Please note that the Cowshed is an old property and therefore quite quirky with low beams and narrow stairs so therefore might not be suitable for young children and elderly or disabled people.

Please note we are very popular for family and friends gatherings, walkers, cyclists etc. We can accept hen parties but unfortunatly not stag or all male groups.

Beautiful cottage in a fantastic rural setting.

  • 5 of 5

Fiftieth birthday get together for eight girls. Enjoyed every second we were there at this most beautiful well presented cottage.

Communication between Emma, the owner and I was second to none and so easy.

Steve was brilliant in making us feel very welcome and made sure we were all settling in nicely.

Would recommend this fantastic place to family and friends alike as it would be suitable for anyone requiring the peace and tranquility of this wonderful rural location.

Great place for a weekend away

  • 5 of 5

I booked here for a hen weekend and the place was amazing. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and there was plenty of room in the property. I really liked the long dining room table as it seated us all perfectly. Having a dishwasher was also convenient especially with a lot of us eating every day. The rooms were lovely and plenty big enough, with clean bedding and towels. Know one needed to queue for the showers or toilets as there was 3 showers and 4 toilets. Even though it rained most of the weekend we still managed to use the hot tub; which everyone loved! The living room was big than expected and easily seated everyone. The property is surround by lovely scenery and only a 20 minute drive in to Buxton. It was an ideal location because we were well away from a busy town and instead in the quiet countryside. Emma was really great at replying to any queries I had leading up to our stay and I would highly recommend the property and would definitely return.

Perfect Peak Experience

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful experience starting with a warm reception from Steve on arrival. The Cowshed has a homely atmsophere and definitely has all the comforts of home and more.

We cooked a turkey dinner for 10 of us for our son's 40th birthday with utensils and crockery in abundance: the dining room was the perfect setting for the meal and celebrations.

The third evening the guys managed the BBQ while the women relaxed in the hot tub - fabulous!!

Bedrooms were pristine with comfy beds, crisp fresh linen and roomy wardrobes. Upstairs we had a large family bathroom between 4 of us with two other shower rooms if necessary. It was really useful for my older son, daughter in law and their young family to be all downstairs in the huge ensuite bedroom and the twin bedded room next door.

The Cowshed is a quirky, well maintained building we all enjoyed, particularly the children who like exploring AND there was the lounge! So comfy: french doors lead onto the patio with the hot tub, fabulous views and amazing sunsets. We will certainly go back there.

Friends Reunion

  • 2 of 5

Party of 10 adults meeting up with friends who had emigrated to Australia. The house is set in a beautiful countryside location with stunning views across the Peak District. The outside facilities (large patio, lawns, seating, bbq and hot tub) were fantastic. The house has 5 good bedrooms, especially the spacious en-suite. The kitchen is well equipped and was the focal point for our group all weekend. There is sufficient space in the rest of the house (large dining room and cosy TV lounge) to find your own space if needed. The booking process, meet & greet and refund of the security deposit all went well with no hassle. The owner showed us around the property next door (Cop Farm) which is an amazing place. I'm sure we'll definitely be back to stay again either at The Cowshed or Cop Farm.

The Cowshed at Cop Farm

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for the weekend with a group of friends for a 50th birthday celebration. Beautiful and well equipt property in an idyllic part of the Peak Forest with some lovely walks.. The house is very well maintained, the hot tub was just a fabulous way to relax. The owner was very helpful and communicates promptly, thank you so much. We would definately recommend this for a group celebration or families/friends holidaying together.
