“Welcoming & comfortable”

Reviewed 1 Jan 2018

Our booking was confirmed very quickly & efficiency with very little fuss. The confirmation and directions were very clear. The cottage was very cosy and the owner Shelley was very welcoming as she met us on our arrival. Also very kindly gave us a bottle of champagne to see the New Year in. We had a lovely stay in the cottage and enjoyed visiting the beautiful Derbyshire countryside - unfortunately due to It being winter & holiday season, not many local attractions & venues were open. Although a disappointment that we couldn’t do the activities we would have liked to do - we still thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Old Farmhouse. Would definitely recommend this cottage to friends.

“Wonderful, peaceful setting”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2017

A great escape from the crowds as the farm is set on a hill with no nearby neighbours. There are so many wonderful amenities nearby though, just a short car drive, including many child-friendly places. Shelley was very welcoming and helpful. The children enjoyed seeing all of the farm animals. The accommodation was just what we were after and we felt right at home. Very enjoyable stay.

“Really comfy family farmhouse”

Reviewed 22 Apr 2017

An excellent place to stay and relax comfortably whilst exploring the countryside. Warm and welcoming complete with lambs and chickens we couldn't have been made more at home x

“Cosy and relaxing”

Reviewed 26 Oct 2016

the cottage was cosy, warm and had everything that you needed for either relaxing or exploring the countryside

“Everything here for a perfect country cottage holiday”

Reviewed 26 Apr 2016

Homely,quaint & olde worlde. Fitted to perfection and newly decorated. The log burner made for very cosy evenings by the fire. Chickens and hens run freely so the eggs are really fresh plus we even helped with lamb feeding. We have really enjoyed our stay with many thanks to our hostess Shelley. She was always at hand with help, advice and with answers to all our questions which required good local knowledge. Thank you Shelley we will be back.

“Quaint Cottage”

Reviewed 21 Feb 2016

We had a lovely time in Matlock Bath and thought Woodside Farm was just perfect. It has all the essentials needed for a trip including kitchen ware and bedding. There are a number of shops 5 mins drive from the cottage and we even had a curry delivered on our last evening so remote enough for peace and tranquillity but close enough for all the essentials.

“A great location for our holiday with our grandaughters, aged 5 and 6”

Reviewed 31 Oct 2015

The cottage was situated in a great location and was very cosy and well equipped. The girls loved collecting the eggs with Shelley and playing with Zebra, their very friendly cat. Although only 5 and 7 we were able to give them lots of freedom to play outside due to the quiet location of the cottage. Darley Dale is a brilliant centre for exploring the Derbyshire countryside and we went out and about every day, including to Poole's Cavern in Buxton (the girls were able to go on a mini Go Ape here!), the Otter Sanctuary, Matlock Bath, Bakewell, etc. Our only disappointment was that it was too cold to BBQ in the evening, but clearly that was just one of those things.

“would be very happy to stay there again”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2015

Very friendly and helpful host. The cottage was in a lovely location and had all the amenities necessary for our stay. The cooked breafasts were great. Very good local pub for evening meals.


Reviewed 20 Apr 2015

Superb cottage in a lovely , very quiet rural setting. Only 5 minutes by car to Matlock & there's absolutely loads of walks and places to visit within an hours drive, including the Chatsworth estate. Lots of good places to eat nearby but the fully equipped kitchen has everything you could ever need to cook yourself. The owners are extremely friendly and were very helpful, to the point of lending me an ordnance survey map for Dovedale. I would definately stay here again!

“Dog friendly cottage”

Reviewed 3 Nov 2014

A very good place for our party of 3 ladies plus one Golden Retriever. We each had a space of our own at night as I made use of the bed settee in the cosy living room which meant I kept an ear open for doggie at night in kitchen. Lovely new kitchen with all essentials and importantly, easy to clean floor!Great if you want door step walks into woods but in my case a bit of enclosed garden would have been helpful too, for letting dog just sit and admire nature! Not a problem really just more trips down the lane for me. We were visiting relatives just down the road but wanted independence and no stress with the dog! This fitted the bill and would use again. Very helpful owner.
