Farm Holidays

Felicity and David are wonderful hosts and highlights, feeding the animals and finding eggs will always be remembered fondly. All of the children have had a wonderful time…… seeing them happy made us happy! We still have so many things we want to do but could not fit in, we will definitely be back, hopefully year on year as the kids grow up.

The cabin is excellent and equipped with everything (including items I forgot!). Felicity, David and family have made us very welcome and we feel very much @ home and relaxed. We are sad to be heading home, but can’t help feeling we’re leaving home! There can be no higher praise – like others we will be back!

Just an Email to thank you both again for our great week. It is, a month on, still very much to the fore of the childrens’ minds. We all enjoyed our stay. I attach a photo of the boys getting eco friendly – sorting the eco bins. Actually it was a good “shot in the arm” as the kids have brought the eco thoughts back with them and I am pleased to support their efforts here at home.

Blue sky and snow covered fields! An absolutely stunning weekend away from our far too busy lives! The cabin was gorgeous, and it was so nice not to have to pack the car with travel cot and high chair for our 1 year old, because like everything else it was provided!

We will definitely be back and will recommend this wonderful place to all our friends.

The most luxurious holiday accommodation ­ fantastically equipped, no expense spared and in such a perfect setting. Our children are very sad to be leaving. Thank you for allowing them to watch the milking so many times! All in all the best family holiday we’ve ever had.
Paul and Ann and family


Lovely! We really had a fantastic week, lots of activities to do in the surroundings and the kids have enjoyed the farm. We hope to come back in a few years …or days!

We have really enjoyed our family weekend away – it was like home from home – we marvelled at the superb accommodation and all the thoughtful touches that made our brief stay so comfortable.

The hot tub was a fun experience, especially as there was a light drizzle of rain which did not matter at all as we were luxuriating in the hot water. Drifter the chocolate Labrador came to see what we were up to! Thanks for a lovely time.

Wonderful, wicked, loved it!

David and Felicity completely went the extra mile to make our special hen weekend one to remember, including being the “Murderer” in our murder mystery meal and wow the hot tub experience was HOT! Our hen had a wonderful time and is totally destressed ready for the wedding.
Helen the bride and friends – Norwich


The kitchen is better equipped than some homes ­ you seem to have thought of everything.
The Wright family – Edinburgh


Every time we come we have a little laugh. We think “Oh, we could do with …” and lo and behold it’s there. We can’t trip Felicity up – even when Nev needed a juicer for his lemons! Can’t wait till our next visit”.
Neville and Val – Liverpool


The cabin exceeded our expectations by a “country mile” and was superb. We look forward to our next visit!
John and Sue­ Rainham, Kent


The cabin is beautiful, the veranda is a lovely place to sit of an evening with a glass of wine and admire the views, and drink in the peace and tranquillity. To be able to arrive at self-catering accommodation and not have to think about anything except what to wear and when/where to eat was fantastic. You appeared to have thought of everything to make us feel comfortable from the minute we arrived to the minute we left. Thank you David, Felicity and family for making us feel so welcome. We have already recommended you to friends who want to visit the Peak District and we will continue to do so. We look forward to staying again in the future.
Best Wishes
Nick, Bev and Nathan, Yeovil, Somerset


Really Awesome! Home from home in beautiful setting. Excellent for the kids, particularly the close proximity to the moos and neighs!!! A great place to get the full farmyard experience without getting up at the crack of dawn. The Hull visitors will definitely be back, the South Africans will dream of returning one day!
Nick and Sal and family, Hull


Super accommodation – 5 star as far as balloonists are concerned! We might have arrived on Friday 13th but still managed to break the world record for the largest number of one man hot air balloons taking off together at the Izaak Walton – 32Cloud hoppers – Quite a sight!
Charlotte, Phil, Steve and Steve


Thank you for a wonderful short break. The cabins are superb! There are so many thoughtful touches to what you’ve provided (it’s more than a “Welcome pack”, rather it’s an “everything you’ll need pack” ). It’s been a complete pleasure to stay here and we look forward to bringing the whole family back.
Jon and Caroline – Lincoln


Some people just don’t know how to relax – this group of mountain bikers cycled several 30 and 40K routes straight from the doorstep! Many thanks for great facilities – we go mountain biking every year and this is the BEST accommodation we have stayed in. Thanks for the lift in to Ashbourne on Saturday night.
Mick, Richard, Techno, and Mush


Thanks for a lovely weekend. The hot tub was a great “extra”. A very relaxing time and it was fantastic to find somewhere that catered for 12 of us – in particular having both dining tables in on cabin meant we had lovely evening meals with everyone together.
Miriam & Dan Hanks and everyone! – Stirling


Your holiday accommodation was absolutely fantastic. We arrived to celebrate Trevor’s 40th birthday and planned on sleeping in, hiking, eating out and relaxing. All of which were done while staying at your lovely, very well equipped and gorgeous location.

Your recommendations of restaurants was bang on, absolutely wonderful and we can’t say enough of your thoughtfulness in arranging a great birthday evening at Carriages. Brilliant!

We would have stolen Twixie, your gorgeous choc lab pup, but figured her puppies will be adorable next time we come! Thanks for such a wonderful time. Your hospitality, well equipped cabins, bonfire, and fresh flowers and bread were such a treat. Looking forward to coming back!

This vacation exceeds expectation!

Many, many thanks, we will surely return!
