An amazing holiday, a wonderful cosy cottage and a great hot tub. There were lots of nice walks in the area.

A quaint and cosy cottage, clean and perfect for a few days. The hot tub was brilliant for long days walking or cycling. The views were beautiful to wake up to and it was not too far to walk to the village for lunch or dinner.

We had a lovely time at the Cow Shed. The idyllic countryside location was perfect for switching off, enjoying some ' us' time and celebrating a birthday. Everything in the Cow Shed exudes quality. It is really is a lovely haven of luxury. The hot tub is amazing, the weather was a little unhot tub friendly but we still enjoyed a few hours in it.

This was a perfect stay. In a beautiful private secluded spot but within a walk of the village. The hot tub was a particular highlight. The apartment was immaculate, everything had been thought of and the owner went out of his way to be helpful. Five stars. I would return.

We had a great break; I could have easily stayed for a whole week, lots to do. The scenery was breath taking. The Cow Shed is very small, compact and bijoux, perfect for what my partner and I wanted. Beautifully refurbished, with lovely furniture and accessories and the hot tub was definitely a bonus. The village was welcoming with 3 friendly pubs. Lots of gorgeous walks, and tumbling hills. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends.

We arrived at the cow shed and were met with a clean, well-equipped studio cottage which we noticed the pictures online do not adequately do justice to. We found the decor in the Cow Shed to be modern but with a vintage feel to it, keeping it's traditional look. The inside of the cottage contained many lovely little touches including complimentary sweets/prosecco/biscuits/tea/coffee/milk/dvds and even fresh eggs from the owner's hens. The owner Tony was a great help, both informative and very friendly, anything we needed he was quick to assist with (coal for bbq,ironing board, matches and cooking oil). The hot tub was very clean and romantic with the beautiful surroundings of the Peak District. Lots of walks and sights to see nearby. The bed was a beautiful vintage feature which was extremely comfortable. There was lots of storage space for clothes etc.The only negatives of our stay would be a large amount of wasps nearby (which we understand couldn't be helped but should be looked into incase of nests) and lastly we felt the studio cottage was really hot even though we had turned off any heating, which we later discovered from the owner himself there was underfloor heating set at a temperature of 20 degrees. We felt this was set too high.Overall we had a fantastic,welcoming experience that we will cherish and will certainly be returning and recommending to all relatives and friends!! Thank you for having us and allowing us to celebrate a fantastic 21st & 22nd birthday all in one :)
