Stayed for a week (not long enough!). We needed somewhere close to family in Crich and this ticked all the boxes. Rural location yet short journey to many lovely towns (Ashbourne, Bakewell etc) and historic houses like Chatsworth and Haddon Hall.
Cottage is cosy, comfy and has everything you need for a great stay. Main bedroom beautiful, comfy bed and nice view of farmyard and Carsington Water. My toddler loved sitting by the window and seeing the animals every morning!
Owners lovely and welcoming. Provided baby carrier and ride-on for the toddler and invited her to use their children's play equipment and trampoline which she loved! Also got to feed the chickens! Provided lots of information and great directions through fields to various places.
Pub within walking distance (The Knockerdown) where we had some good food. Spent a day cycling around Carsington on rented bikes-great fun!
Only disappointment is we didn't have enough time to see the llamas!More
