“Festival Wedding EXTRAVAGANZA”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We looked at a lot of places (my wife being the diligent sensible type) but as soon as we met Martin and spent 5 minutes walking around the property and looking at the cottages we knew this would be the place.

The Owners, Martin and Nessie are fantastic for a start, whether you're going for a weekend with a big group or a family to celebrate a birthday, or indeed planning on having the big day on the upper field; they were approachable, always pleasant, always accommodating and very friendly. They left it completely up to us to plan and place our various things (marquees, skips, toilets) and at no point injected to tell us we couldn't do something.
If you are trying to plan a home made wedding that suits you, GO HERE; Martin and Nessie will let you have that.

They will give you a list of local companies that know the site (marquees, toilet, skip, catering hire etc. etc.) and offer good rates.

The Venue; HUGE field. Do what you want with it (well, don't salt the earth and set fire to it)!
We popped a marquee in it and made a village fete before having a ceilidh/disco/campfire until very, very late/early.
There is plenty of electric (we had lights, audio equipment, a band, a fridge, a coffee boiler, fridge trailer and didn't blow the circuits).
There is plenty of space, you could easily have a bigger wedding here; as it stands we had 110 guests and filled a quarter of the field with infrastructure, parking and camping.
Photo opportunities on the big day were plenty (including a labyrinth, funky wooden sculpture, flowers galore-courtesy of Martin and Nessie!!!)

The Accommodation; 3 cottages,10 bedrooms, all connected if you need them. With full self-catering facilities available (I managed to do our 3 tier wedding cake there the day before the wedding in one of the kitchens and was fine).
The rooms are lovely en suite (some shared bathrooms in some of the cottages) with car parking, BBQ, picnic benches outside, large tables, sofas, books, tvs, dvd players; the list is endless.
You can book a single cottage if you wish as well of course, as we did before the wedding, and this was absolutely fine.

Great place; really can't say enough we loved every minute of our wedding and a HUGE part of that was the venue and its owners!

Top Tip: recce the route there from wherever you are, the post code does not match up with some SatNavs (beyond the control of the property)

Go here!

“Amazing 40th Birthday Bash for group of friends and family”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

I booked all three the barns for my husbands 40th birthday bash and it was absolutely perfect. The accommodation actually seems a lot larger than the impression I had from the website and is all finished to an extremely high standard.
The group was a mix of friends and family of all ages and the large field behind the barns was perfect for a bouncy castle / inflatable sumo ring we hired (from inflatamania in Derby) and a game of rounders.
There is a good pub within walking distance and we also went to Carsington Water which was 5 miles away had a good play area for the kids and coffee shop with a nice view of the reservoir. We didn't go on any other trips as it was only a short break but in the guide the owners left for us it explained a range of activities that were available near by.
There is plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, and the barns are very well equipped. If you are considering a similar party for a large group I cannot recommend enough.

“I Cannot Recommend This Place Highly Enough”
Reviewed December 2, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

people found this review helpful

I booked Sycamore Farm Barns as a location for my thirtieth birthday get together. We had a fantastic time.

The cottages are beautifully decorated, well equipped and in a great location. They're on the edge of the Peak District and the nearby village of Wirksworth has just enough shops (and pubs) to while away an afternoon. If that isn't enough, there was even a basket of essentials waiting for us on arrival including local butter, fresh bread, milk and a bottle of wine. A lovely touch!

Book a holiday at Sycamore Farm Barns today...you won't be disappointed!

“A superb place for friends to gather, absolutely knock-out accommodation”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Flawless! And a beautiful touch from the owners who provided a welcome basket on arrival containing the basics and a bottle of plonk, Thank you! Superbly furnished and finished to an excellent standard. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything we needed for cooking for eight people. The location is secluded enough to enjoy that all-too-rare countryside silence in the evenings, but close enough to some of Derbyshire's more picturesque market towns to make it a top pick for a break away from it all. Of my many reviews I have to place this holiday accommodation in first place!
