"Great accommodation in a great location"
A large group of friends, 12 of us, stayed in both of 'The Barns' across several nights and we found them to be fantastic and exactly what we needed.
The rooms were clean and tidy, the beds were comfortable and everything we needed was provided. There was even complementary milk, eggs and orange juice!
There was plenty of information regarding what to do in the local area. We went to the Barley Mow but unfortunately we arrived just as the live band were setting up so there wasn't enough room for all 12 of us, so we nipped across the village to The Kings Head where we were made very welcome and tucked into some fine grub! The Fountain Cafe down the road is also worth a mention too, great full English!
Study Farm Barns are highly recommended, if I ever want to explore that part of the world again with family I'll be returning!

"Great location for exploring Derbyshire Dales"
5 of us stayed very comfortably in Church View holiday barn. The accommodation was homely, very well kept, spacious and light, well equipt, spotlessly clean with bedding and towels included, an ideal place to meet up with family and friends for a break away from home.
The friendly owners live next door and were easily approachable.
Bonsall appears to be a friendly village, we visited the Fountain Tea Cafe, 1 minute walk down the farm lane, they sell tasty homemade cakes and have a varied menu of everything from snacks to meals.
We also visited the beautiful village church which was open so you could see inside and have quiet time.
There are 2 pubs in Bonsall and both close on Mondays out of season for food, so we went to Matlock Bath to The Balti - would highly recommend this restaurant.
The KIngs Arms opens at 9pm for the bellringers and visitors after there practice night (monday). The owners of The Kings Arms and villagers made us feel very welcome and we had good evening meal there midweek, would re-visit if in the area again.
The weather was fine but cold, we were able to visit many places in short drive times from Bonsall eg. Cromwell, Matlock Bath, Matlock, Bakewell, Buxton, Chesterfield and Chatsworth House, the countryside around has some beautiful views.
We would recommend Study Farm Cottages as a first class peaceful location and would certainly stay there again if our plans were to holiday again in Derbyshire.
Tip - if you intend to walk home in the dark carry a torch in your bag.
Thankyou Jayne,Dave and Girls.
