We agree with all the previous reviews! The hosts are great, the cottage is amazing and the facilities are everything you could need for a break. The location means it's a great base to explore this part of the Peak District (Matlock, Bakewell, Buxton, Monsal Trail or Chatsworth House for a start). There's a pub a 5 minute walk away or an Aldi a short drive if you want to grab supplies. We can't wait to return!
We could not fault our stay in the Milking Parlour. The accommodation was to a high standard and spotlessly clean with some nice treats on arrival. The farm is in a great location and in easy reach of places we wanted to visit (Chatsworth House, Bakewell, Monsal Trail etc...). There were some nice circular walks from the farm too, and the views from the farm were amazing. We would highly recommend this accommodation and do plan to return again n the future.
Well equipped and extremely clean. Beautifully designed and very comfortable. Amazing views and countryside - walks from the property are highly recommended. Excellent games room and laundry. Lovely personal touches and generous extras. A very well thought out property - highly recommended. Cycle store and very canine friendly! Owners dog Honey a delight! Excellent internet and Wifi.
We had a fantastic three night stay here and would love to return. The cottage is so attractively furnished - it's simple and comfortable, it has personality but isn't too quirky or kitsch. The double sided log burner is a luxury and the views across the Derbyshire Dales from the French windows are stunning. It's too easy to lapse into hyperbole, but everything really was perfect. Julia couldn't have been more helpful, from finding us some ice for gin and tonics when we arrived to answering questions by email before we arrived.
The whole site is beautifully tended. A family party occupied the other properties across the yard while we were there: the Milking Parlour is thoughtfully designed so it still feels private even when others are about.
The games room was a great entertainment on a wet and snowy day. We enjoyed a very traditional pub lunch in Sheldon Village.
If you want to hide away and self-cater, I recommend taking provisions with you as there isn't a shop in Sheldon. The kitchen is well equipped - it's no hardship cooking here for two in this magical spot high in the Dales! There are great walks and views from the cottage - or Bakewell is a short drive down the hill.
What a stunning little place! The views were wonderful, the interior was so comfortable and tasteful, and our hosts have clearly worked extremely hard on creating the perfect getaway in a very picturesque part of the Peak District. Hens and sheep welcomed us along with thoughtful treats inside our weekend retreat.
Take a look at the other holiday cottages on the same site, they are equally as beautiful...thank you x
