The cottage exceeded our expectations by Steven & Vicki, Oregon, USA on June 17th 2016
The cottage is a Treasure. From the well appointed kitchen to the incredibly comfortable bed, it exceeded our expectations. On sunny days we loved to sit on the terrace, when it rained the cottage was a cosy refuge. For us the location was perfect, and we were very impressed with how friendly the neighbours were. Thank you for sharing your Treasure !!

Fabulous Farmhouse by FarNeil on June 12th 2014
Our stay at Church Farm was fabulous from start to finish. The Farmhouse catered for us all - 3 couples, one with a baby and a dog. The kitchen and dining area were a pleasure to cook and dine in and the 2 lounges were brilliant as we all didn't want to watch the same thing on TV in the evening or some of us just wanted quiet time. The family bathroom is amazing - the large shower and roll top bath with awesome views across the Peak. We had fab hot weather during our stay so we made a lot of use of the back garden and patio. David and the guy living next door could not have been more helpful. Thankyou again!
