    The Barn Owl Cottage is really lovely - a great location and very clean and well looked after, we had a great trip. It was a bit of shame not to have the lovely four poster bed in the main room, as per the photos on the website, but in general we loved our stay and would definitely recommend. Alexandra was really helpful and communication was great!

    Had a fantastic week away with my 11 year old daughter. The location of this cottage provides a perfect base to explore what Derbyshire has to offer and there are so many things on the doorstep that there is no need to travel far. I lived in Matlock in the mid 70s but moved back to the North East of England in '79 so I know the area quite well hence the reason of picking a cottage in this location. The cottage itself was perfect for our needs as dogs are allowed and the flooring is mainly wood with one part of it made out of stone so any muck dragged in on feet and paws is easily cleaned. I could describe the whole cottage room by room but cant see the point as there is a good description and photos available but I can say that it is extremely homely and warm with lovely vaulted ceilings and lots of mood lighting. there is no need to take anything when you come to stay as everything you could need for comfort is provided . All rooms are spacious, airy and tastefully decorated. The bathroom is a full wetroom so again it is very practical and easy to maintain. We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay here and will be boking up for next year so I can highly recommend this property should you be looking to stay in the Matlock area. The property owners run the farm on which the cottage is located and they were perfect hosts, very amiable and happy to chat at any time night or day. So to recap...we loved this cottage so if you are tempted by a break in Derbyshire then you definitely wont be disappointed

    Owners made us feel very welcome. Easy distance to Matlock. Milk and biscuits on arrival much appreciated. Will certainly try to come back again.

    Brilliant place to get away from it all with family and friends. Excellent location to use as a base for visiting the many local attractions.



    out of 10

    lovely cottage in a great location for chatsworth, bakewell and matlock ...spotlessly clean and fun being on the farm...only issue for us was other guests children upstairs who I don't think realised our bedroom was underneath theres...some carpet may help but they were much quieter and mindful of the noise when we politely pointed out we were underneath them
