What more can I say about our stay at Oldfields Farm other than simply beautiful. The new owners; Diane and Vaughan have spared no expense on the high level of accommodation provided to their guests. As a large family with 4 children we found Oldfields Farm was perfect for a relaxing yet entertaining break. It's such a beautiful rural retreat...

I have just experienced a wonderful weekend at Oldfields Farm with two friends and what an experience it was folks!! FAB-U- LOUS in every sense of the word! Jan could not have made us more welcome; upon arrival we received beautiful home made scones, a tot of sloe gin, in the fridge were fresh strawberries, cream, new laid eggs. We...

Just enjoyed a fabulous long weekend break at Oldfields Farm, Snelston. Superb accommodation, delightfully presented food and hospitality that made our stay just wonderful. Hosts Glyn and Jan deserve all the very fulsome accolades they have garnered here - and then some. For ourselves, we know we couldn't have made a better choice.

We have just returned from a fabulous four day break in the Peak District staying at Oldfield’s Farm in Snelston. It is ideally located just south of Ashbourne - allowing easy access by road to all the major points of interest such as Chatsworth House, Buxton and Dovedale etc. We received a very warm welcome from Jan and Glyn on...

my boyfriend and I have just enjoyed a thoroughly relaxing weekend in the bed and breakfast room at Oldfields Farm. The website looked fantastic and the reality was even better. Our bedroom was sumptuously comfortable with a very luxurious bathroom, jacuzzi bath and a shower that simply did everything! The owners Jan,Glyn and their delightful daughter Lydia were wonderful hosts...

We chose Handels Muse from the internet as we liked the look of the website and we were not disappointed. The barn renovation has been beautifully and tastefully done and it had a good homely feel. It was well equipped with everything of the very best quality , we wanted for nothing. The scones and the yummy home made jam...

We stayed at Oldfields Farm for our wedding anniversary and took our three month old daughter with us too.

Everything is thought of and provided, we even had roses and a card for our anniversary and the homemade scones were...

We stayed at Oldfields Farm for a double celebration weekend: a birthday on the Friday, and our wedding anniversary on the Sunday. We came across Oldfields Farm by chance and were lucky enough to be able to stay in the farmhouse B&B room. Over the years we have stayed at dozens of guest houses, B&Bs and hotels up and down...

Don't expect a cooked breakfast. Now Jan puts on a nice morning spread. We had wild raspberries freshly picked at 6am that morning (Jan doesn't sleep!) and freshly baked bread which, if you are a lover of a continental style breakfast, is superb. But considering she runs a Five Star B&B, one would expect the option of a fried egg...

What a great pity that the guests did not read our website with a little more care prior to making their reservation - a cooked breakfast was available for a small supplement using locally sourced ingredients and specially cured bacon at a neighbouring farm. At no point during their stay was this ever mentioned nor asked for, but then again...

We have just enjoyed a wonderful 2 days as guests of Jan, Glyn & Lydia (mummy's great little helper!).

“To feel part of the family, choose the farmhouse B&B room. If you prefer a more intimate setting, Handel's Muse is ideal and if you are part of a larger group, there's a separate section of the house for you, too.”
