|Further details indoors|
This property was fully restored from a building just short of collapse. We believe it to be as old as the main farmhouse. Records have been found dating back to 1626. Any stone replaced had been taken directly out of the ground at Ravenscliffe as they match the stone of the existing building. The walls are interesting as the original builders didn't seem to have used a spirit level back in the 1600's. This adds to its charm however.
In additon to the settee, there is a large puffe'
This cottage is suitable for 2 people only.
Large fishing pond stocked with Rudd and Carp. Please bring your own fishing tackle. Not provided.
|Further details outdoors|
Outside there is generous parking area for car. The stone walls around the patio and garden were all recently built, but in the same stone as The Barn. The stone seat is perfect to sit and rest, watch and listen to the sounds of the wildlife. The views are stunning. Watch the sun rise over the hill. There are dusk to dawn night lights around the farmyard. The Barn has exterior lights, operated by a switch.
Homestead Cottage, which sleeps 6 is just across the yard, should you wish to come as a family group.
Welcome pack provided on arrival.
Minimum charge of 3 nights. If staying less than 3 nights, departure time adjusted from 10am to evening.
We live on site and are generally around to answer any queries. We want to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay and very much prefer it if you could let us know if there any problems arise with the cottage, rather than trying to put up with it. I.e. the washing machine suddenly doesn't work or your need extra bedding
The Heart of England/Peak District
Situated within The Peak National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Limestone and Gritstone quarries are still worked, but generally hidden by trees. Lead mining was once carried out in the area, but ceased some years ago. Hills and valleys create some dramatic scenery. Derbyshire once sat under a shallow sea. Evidence can often be seen in the rocks, with fossils of small crustations.
Blue John Gemstone is a rare mineral and the alternating colour bands of blue to purple through to yellow or white are unique to the Treak Cliff Hill in Derbyshire. The shallow rivers are ideal for Trout.
Some of the local places within half an hour of Ravenscliffe Farm are: Matlock Bath and The Heights of Abraham and Gullivers Kingdom. Dovedale, Alton Towers, Kedleston Hall, Sudbury Hall and Museum of Childhood, Bakewell, home of the original Bakewell Tart and Bakewell Pudding. Carsington Water with Visitor Centre, cycle hire and ride. Tissington Trail with cycle hire and ride.
Other places to visit within forty five minutes to an hour are: Haddon Hall, setting for Jane Eyre, Chatsworth - back cloth for Pride and Prejudice and The Duchess of Wolfman. Dovedale, Lindale and Ilam Hall, featured in Robin hood, Jane Eyre and The other Boleyn Girl, Hardwick Hall of The Elizabethan era. Derwent Valley with Lady Bower Reservoir. Buxton.

This is a comfortable and beautifully situated property. The owners are very friendly and helpful. It's very good for cyclists or walkers because you are minutes from two execllent trails and loads of similar opportunites are on the doorstep. There are loads of interesting old pubs round about, most with good food.
The trails are very popular in the Peak District. It was a pleasure to have had our guests stay at Ravenscliffe Farm in The Barn and then make full use of the facilities in the area. The cottage was left as found, very clean and tidy. Thank you both.

We are delighted that our guests enjoyed the cottage and appreciate the quality of fittings. It is not a large cottage, although the bathroom is spacious. We cannot deny the natural beauty of the surroundings. The Peak District is a lovely area.

"A place to return too at different seasons."
Our stay was in February of this year. It could not have been more magical, with the snow having fallen on the stunning hills and views that are all around this beautiful place.We stayed in the one bed-roomed The Barn.
The accommodation far exceed our expectation, having everything you would need. really a smaller home from home.The bedding and furnishings were of a very good quality, with a good lay out in the Barn.
We were met by the owners David & Sandra Snow, who could not have been more helpful.nothing being too much trouble. we were told of the endless places we could visit, but sadly we did not have the time. It is our intention to visit this beautiful place again later on in the year and we would like to see it, in all the four seasons.
Many thanks to our customers for putting their comments on Trip Advisor. It is lovely to know that they enjoyed their stay. We also find the views stunning.

"What a find, a "gem" of place in the heart of Derbyshire."
Have stayed in both holiday rental properties here and never want to leave! Ravenscliffe Farm is truly a unique place to stay.Guests are encouraged to enjoy not only the property but surrounding farmland. Never have I been made as welcome as I am here. The proprietors always on hand whilst unobstrusive go above and beyond to make the very best of your stay. Wildlife abounds the surrounding farmland. Stunning views and beautiful walks from the doorstep.The barn is an ideal retreat for two people. Finished to a very high specification it provides ideal base for exploring all of the very best that Derbyshire has to offer.
For further information and lots photographs see their website.
Both cottages are maintained to the same high standard. Our customers here are very particular and hence we feel that we must be getting something right. It is a pleasure to know that the surrounding hills and fields full of wildlife are appreciated. We hope that future customers will enjoy what Ravenscliffe has to offer.
