“Holiday in the cow shed”

Reviewed 12 May 2017

Brilliant cottage clean and everything you need in it will definitely be going back was made very welcome flowers chocolate brownies and milk very thoughtful lovely pub the beehive down the road lovely good and very welcoming

“Beautiful little cottage”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2016

Beautiful cozy cottage, with a very homely feel to it. The owners were very welcoming and the cakes provided were delicious! It's in a great location as it is only a 15 minute walk into Glossop town, with lots of pubs near. My partner and I had a very quiet and realxing stay and would love to visit again!

“Lovely weekend break”

Reviewed 26 Aug 2016

A really nice property run by a friendly and helpful couple with lots of personal touches including flowers and cake upon arrival, and even a hand-made stained-glass window between the bedroom and the living room! The location is ideal for lovely walks in the peak district, being close to the upper Derwent valley. Plenty of pubs and eateries in Glossop although we decided to self-cater and found the kitchen to be really well equipped. A lovely wood burner sits in the living room which is provided with sufficient wood / kindling etc. The only (minor) downside was the lack of wifi as the phone signal isn't great, however when you're on holiday in the countryside this isn't really much of an issue! Overall, we had a brilliant weekend away and would come again / recommend to others.

“Cosy, quiet and a beautiful little cottage.”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2016

I stayed for 3 nights with my partner. We were looking for somewhere quiet and nice, we got quiet and beautiful, we loved our stay and Andrew and Wendy we so welcoming ( the brownies were fabulous) we can't wait to visit again.

“Cute and cosy”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2015

A really lovely little cottage with a nice cosy feel. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners who left a tin of absolutely delicious homemade chocolate brownies to enjoy during our stay. It's not easy to find, but the owners provided excellent directions so we didn't have any problems. The cottage is quite small, with no storage space for luggage, other than under the bed, but fine for a short stay. The lounge/dining kitchen is a great open space, and it is well decorated and equipped, with pretty much everything you are likely to need. I was impressed by the excellent selection of DVDs, lots of leaflets for local attractions and a bookcase including local walking maps and books. However, there is no wifi and very poor mobile phone coverage, so if you want to get away from it all, this is a great option! The cottage is about a 10 minute walk from the centre of Glossop, quite steep uphill on the way back! There's a good pub a few minutes walk away with a good selection of real ales and possibly the most impressive and extensive whisky selection known to man! Highly recommended - particularly good for some excellent hill walking in the area.

“Excellent stay”

Reviewed 23 Mar 2015

We spent 3 nights at the Cowshed whilst visiting family. It was a perfect place to stay, very warm and cosy and had everything we needed. Bed was super comfy and warm, log burner an added treat. Wendy was very friendly and welcoming and the homemade chocolate brownies a lovely surprise. Books and DVDs were available for the evenings in - would definitely stay here again ! Thank you

“We found all we wanted in this cottage”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2014

We were very comfy in this cottage, and the owners were extra helpful, going so far as to drive us around Glossop to show us the town.

“Excellent visit”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2014

The Cowshed is a well designed compact cottage which is ideal for 2 people. We spent 4 nights here and were very comfortable - there are lots of little touches provided by the owners to make it an enjoyable stay. If we went back to this area again we would not hesitate to stay here again and can highly recommend it.

“Perfect cosy country cottage with perfect hosts”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2014

We stayed here with our toddler son whilst looking at houses in the area. The cottage is perched on top of a hill and has a wonderful views over the glossopdale hills. in the evening we were lucky to get stunning sunsets. However, the cottage is still only walking distance from the centre and near a very nice pub "The Beehvive". The cottage (or rather apartment) is very small but perfect for two people with a lounge/kitchen area and seperate bedroom. There is also a seating area outside overlooking the hills. Inside the cottage if perfectly decorated and very well equipped with tea coffee and milk included. We took our toddler who slept in the travel cot in our bedroom and to be honest it was a bit of a tight squeeze and only just do-able. I think I would recommend this more for a couple. However, our little one loved running around the outside area and got lots of attention from the hosts who bought him a he was happy. Wendy and Andrew were in many ways the perfect hosts and always on hand to offer help. The brownies on arrival were very welcomed after a long journey from London!

“Great value weekend retreat”

Reviewed 28 Apr 2014

We arrived on Friday and were greeted by the owners, Wendy and Andrew who showed us round and gave us some advice on places to go. And they'd baked chocolate brownies which was a nice touch. And fresh flowers too. They'd also emailed prior to us setting off to give directions and to ask what kind of milk we wanted. Fire was there ready to be lit and it REALLY heats the place up. There's a small TV with built-in DVD player and a decent choice of DVDs too. We went for a weekend of walking and there was a great selection of books and maps in the property with lots of walks in them. There's also a slow cooker so handy for cooking your food while out walking. Only slight gripe was that there wasn't a potato masher or colander (not that we could find anyway). It has a good shower and quite a big bath too. Very close to the town centre and a steep walk downhill. The 2 nights we went into the town centre we got taxis back and they only cost £2.80 (or £3.86 if you bump into a stranger in town who's going kinda the same way, but he kindly gives you £2.80 anyway making the cost only £1.06). If you like folk music (or just music in general) I highly recommend the Labour club on a Friday and the last Sunday of the month, where they have music sessions. Just take your instrument and join in. Apparently the folk train (Google it!) also comes to Glossop once a month and it's worth going to the Labour club for that too, whenever it is. Anyway, the Cowshed comes highly recommended. I nearly booked a place just outside Glossop but so glad I didn't and decided to actually stay in the town because you're right on the edge of the countryside anyway. Thanks again to Wendy and Andrew, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
