    We had a fabulous 7 night stay at Shaw House. The cottage was fantastic and really spacious,the garden was amazing and my 5 year old daughter loved the sheep and calf which she could go and stroke on the farm. The cottage is well located for lots of things to do in the area. Terry the cottage owner and Terry the sheep farmer would both fantastic and gave us some fabulous ideas of places to visit and I always think local knowledge can’t be beaten. The Peakstone Inn is just up the road from Shaw House and the food was fab and is great for families. If you want to travel a bit further a field for a nice meal I would highly recommend The Wayfarer, it is well worth the 30 minute journey. We will definately be back again. There is so much more to do in the area.

    What an amazing week. We had a fabulous time at Shaw House. A lovely farm cottage on a working farm. (Despite the dreadful weather, rain or mist most days), we would all choose to stay there again. Great location. Well equipped and maintained. Huge cottage and garden. Beautiful walks on the farm. Terry the owner was very kind and welcoming, he showed us round the farm and we loved seeing how the lambs were growing daily (we stayed in April) 10 min drive to Alton Towers. We also did a day trip to Buxton and Poole Cavern which we all enjoyed. Happiest times were walking on the farm, and in the cottage or garden with our children and the extensive children's toys available within the cottage. The children have all asked if we can return and not visit Alton Towers but spend more time on the farm or in the local area which we were unable to get into much as it was so wet. Thanks so much Terry we hope to stay again.
