“Peak of perfection”
The Peak District is a lovely area to visit, and the Courtyard Creamery is an excellent base from which to explore the Derbyshire Dales. Spacious and tasteful accommodation, with a big comfortable bed. We enjoyed watching the pied wagtails patroling the lawn each morning, seeing the cattle, and being greeted by the friendly chickens. The patio is a lovely spot to sit with a glass of wine and enjoy the peace of the countryside. We loved walking in nearby Wolfscote Dale and hiring bikes from Parsley Hay to cycle along the Tissington Trail.
Good news that you had a enjoyable break at Courtyard Creamery and sometimes I think the chickens are far too friendly! The views are great from your patio and so pleased you had time to enjoy a glass of wine and enjoy them. Thanks for writing a great review. Jane
We had a fantastic week in the courtyard creamery at Biggin grange. This place is perfect for staying at and touring the peak District, especially by push bike and walking as we did. So peacefull, lovely owners, Otto the dog, amazing scenery and we would have no hesitation to stay again.
If Otto could read he would be thrilled to know he added to your stay! A very faithful black labrador! Thanks for taking the time to write a review and pleased you had a nice few days at the cottage. Jane
“peace and comfort in the countryside”
We stayed a week at the Courtyard Creamery. Spacious, comfortable, beautiful details, very well equipped kitchen. Use of washing machine and dryer. Biggin Grange is a very well situated working farm (cows and sheep) and (also important) within walking distance of a pub with nice meals. Nearby start great walks through the Dales. We liked everything!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review and pleased you had a nice time. We are lucky having a pub in the village and all our guests say what a friendly welcome they get. Do come back and see us again in the future! Jane
“Excellent stay in an amazing apartment”
The Courtyard Creamery is a really beautiful apartment in the Peaks, perfect for what me and my partner were looking for. The location is fantastic and everything about the apartment was kept to a very high standard, including a really nice personal touch of homemade biscuits waiting for us on arrival. Would definitely recommend :)
Glad the biscuits went down well! So pleased you enjoyed your weekend at Courtyard Creamery and do come back if you need a break and want to chill out in Derbyshire. Jane
“Perfect escape to the country”
Booked this cottage as the pictures were eye catching and fell in love with the views. On arrival we were met my Jayne and made to feel extremely welcome. Lovely cottage with everything in it you need, lovely kitchen with all utensils to be able to cook anything you need and cosy bed with a lovely bathroom. All in all perfect and décor is lovely. The surroundings are beautiful and although we did not have perfect weather it did not matter as the walks in the countryside (all found nearby) were brilliant and with a small village nearby we were able to get anything we needed. Recommend visiting the River Dove and Monsal head. Enjoyed being away from it all and will definitely be going back later in the year when it is a bit warmer and spend longer as 2 nights was not enough.
Thank you so much for writing such a nice review. We are really lucky with being able to access so many walks directly from the property and I so pleased you were able to explore. Hartington seems to get better and better as the little village shops stock so much more than they used to. So no need to venture much further if you don't want to. You must come back when the weather gets warmer. It is such a sun trap on the terrace and perfect to relax while looking at Biggin Dale.
We stayed for two nights in this lovely cottage. It is superbly renovated with much more facilities and little touches than you would expect with a typical self catering accommodation. The location is perfect, in the heart of the peaks. We visited Bakewell, Buxton, Matlock and Dovedale, all of which are short drives away. Thank you for a great stay! P.s. It also made an ideal setting for a successful marriage proposal! ☺
How exciting a proposal ....! Congratulations to you both and I wish you both much happiness together. Thanks so much for writing such a nice review and hope to see you both back at Biggin Grange in the future.
Couldn't fault this property it is in a stunning setting & within easy walking distance for a drink and good food
So glad you had a nice weekend and we are lucky having a local pub in walking distance. Really pleased you liked the cottage and thank you for writing a review. Jane
“Lovely country break”
We stayed at courtyard creamery the past weekend 9th - 11th of jan. We did struggle to find it on the sat nav but realised its two seconds away from the centre of biggin. It was a perfect size for the two of us, it had everything you needed. Lovely views also. Jane and Richard were very welcoming and helpful on arrival and departure. I would deffinatly stay again it's in the perfect spot to get away from city living ! We had a great time only wish we were there longer.
I'm so glad you had a nice weekend staying in Courtyard Creamery. Thanks so much for taking the trouble to write a review and do come back and see us again when you need some Derbyshire fresh air! Jane
“Relaxed luxury in a beautiful setting”
Just returned from a very enjoyable week in the Courtyard Creamery. Warm and inviting accommodation and the beauty of the Peaks on our doorstep so what's not to like!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Am so pleased you enjoy your week - you certainly got the range of weather from sun to snow! Jane
“A gem of a place.”
Great location, easy access to walks in Wolfscote Dale, Beresford Dale and Dovedale. Excellent accommodation with all the facilities you need and some lovely little touches. Makes you feel at home within an hour of getting there.
Am really pleased you had a nice couple of days staying in Courtyard Creamery. The painter has been in for a week just to freshen it all up so you will have to come back and stay again!
