“Lovely midweek break”
Reviewed November 30, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at The Old Farrowings. The wood burning stove made the room nice and cosy with views over Biggin Dale. We arrived late so the home made biscuits were a surprise treat. I would recommend this if you need a quiet break, there are lots of pretty walks including the Tissington trail.

I am glad you had a nice couple of days at Biggin Grange. You will have to come for longer next time! But glad you discovered the Tissington Trail which is so near and a lovely place to walk.

I'm so pleased you enjoyed staying in The Old Farrowings. I am just about to put a new bathroom in so hopefully if you return you will notice a few improvements. The local pub seems to be getting lots of good feedback from our guests and it is handy being able to walk over to it. Thanks very much for taking the time to review the cottage. Jane

Thanks very much for the lovely review. Am so pleased you had a nice couple of days and you managed to relax from your life in London! So pleased you liked the cottage and I have just put a new larger TV ready for those autumn evenings when you just want to watch a film and curl up in front of the wood-burner. Come back and see us again when you need a Derbyshire fix! Jane

“Beautiful Peak District Cottage”
Reviewed October 29, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We arrived to a friendly greeting from Jane and home-made ginger biscuits! The cottage was absolutely lovely with an enormous bedroom and bathroom, well stocked kitchen, a cosy wood burning stove and the most amazing view from the door. The village of Biggin is small but has a good pub in The Waterloo and great walks through Biggin Dale - and if you need anything there's another small village nearby in Hartington with an excellent village store, a couple of pubs and a cheese shop. Jane provides tonnes of local information in her welcome pack, which was very useful. All in all it was a lovely weekend away in a beautiful setting, would definitely recommend Biggin Grange and in particular The Old Farrowings.

So pleased you had a good time in Derbyshire and thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are lucky having a pub in the village and also Hartington seems to get better and better which means you don't need to go far! Hope to see you again in the future. Jane

“Beautiful cottage with lovely views.”
Reviewed October 19, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We spent the weekend in this cosy cottage and thoroughly enjoyed it. We arrived late so no face to face welcome but inside we found a lovely hand written note and some homemade ginger biscuits. Tasteful decoration throughout, great facilities and all your home creature comforts. Bedroom was really spacious (great nights sleep in very comfy 4 poster bed) and the ensuite very nice too. Would recommend to anyone looking for a home away from home trip to the Peaks.

It was really nice to meet you and I loved hearing the roar of your Harley - the first one at Biggin Grange! Am glad you managed to explore the area but also have some time relaxing and enjoying the warm weather and views. Thank you very much for your nice review. Jane
