The farm was an absolute dream and was everything we could have wished for and more. The tour of the farm and milking was very exciting for the children and having sheep in our garden was lovely for them. The cottage was unique and beautiful with so many little features. The Owners were welcoming and helpful but also left us to our own devices so we felt like it was our little cottage and not staying with them. The farm has so much to do around it and the walks accessible from the doorstep were brilliant. We will be returning here.

Such a great week away! The cottage was gorgeous, and the owner made us feel so welcome and our kids loved it. We will definitely go back and recommend it to others!

The property was warm, luxurious, well equipped and immaculate. The owner was very helpful when I called her preceding the holiday and she ensured a stair gate was fitted for my toddler.

The cottage was in an excellent location for the activities we wanted to do and places we wanted to visit. It was also perfectly equipped and thoughtfully laid out with more than adequate space for storage. We had a wonderful holiday and would highly recommend the cottage!

Wonderful cottage, I would highly recommend it. Getting to from Ambergate on foot is not for the faint hearted! The cottage is lovely, the farm is lovely too, we had lambs in the garden while we stayed too. Absolutely loved it.

This cottage was stunning, cleaned to a very high standard and was really well equipped. It had everything you needed from self catering accommodation and more. The owner was lovely and very welcoming and I would thoroughly recommend this cottage.

Good central location for getting to Chatsworth, Bakewell, Hardwick, Buxton, etc. Recommend a visit to Masson Mills. Lovely host - very friendly and welcoming with milk in the fridge, wine and fruit. Accommodation is comfortable - lovely big bed in the main bedroom and spacious modern bathroom. Nice to have the use of the pool table.

Wiggonlea Stable was very comfortable with adequate provisions of linen and utensils for the week. It was well situated for exploring the surrounding area, and we received a very warm welcome from the owner.

We, my husband and my two teenage sons, actually stayed in Fletcher's Barn which is next to Wiggonlea Stables and both are run by Ruth Spendlove of Wiggonlea Farm. We had an absolute lovely time. The downstairs of the barn is open plan: kitchen -diner -lounge with a woodburner, telly, Wifi and two comfortable sofas. There is a smaller double bedroom (can be made up as twin) ideal for children/teenagers and the bathroom, no tub just a shower. Upstairs is a very spacious double bedroom, again two single divan beds that can be made up as twin or double bed. It is a fabulously big bed and very comfortable. There is a nice big dressing table and a second telly. Also enough room for a cot (provided) or even a folding bed if need be. The kitchen is very well equipped with hob, oven, microwave and washer/dryer. You have all the cutlery and kitchen utensils you could possibly want for a holiday. All the furnishing are beautifully rustic and well looked after, the colour scheme is natural tones from light to dark, very complementary. There is lots to do in the area. Fantastic walks, i.e. Castleton, don't miss out on climbing up to Mam Tor and walking the ridge to Back Tor. Visit Peveril Castle, also in Castleton. Visit the lead mines/caves in Matlock on the Heights of Abraham. there are loads more caverns to visit all around the area. Go rafting, we did it with Rapid Horizons in Matlock, great fun. Although we were a little unlucky with the weather we enjoyed ourselves very much. We hope to come back some time in the future.

We have just returned from our stay at Wiggonlea stable. We received a very warm welcome from the owner Ruth (Thank you for the tour of the farm - the kids loved it!!!) The cottage itself is very well equipped and ideally situated. The view from the Living room window is beautiful and the beds are sooooooooo comfortable! We all hope to return in the future. Would highly recommend.

Our son was being married in nearby Shottle Hall and this cottage was the perfect place to stay locally before and after the wedding. The cottage is very well eqipped, has two comfortable bedrooms and the warmth from the log burner in the lounge is amazing. Central heating caters for the rest of the cottage including the large bath/shower/wet room. We met the owner Mrs Spendlove who could not have been more welcoming and helpful. We would consider returning for a less hectic occasion when we had time to visit the various walks around the beautiful countryside. The cottage next door is the yard looks equally well appointed.

What a wonderful cottage. We received a warm welcome from the owner. The cottage is to a very high standard. Well equipped, clean and comfortable. Lots of space to relax. Lovely view from the lounge over fields of grazing animals and could watch the sun rise and set from there. Such a lovely relaxing stay. Would highly recommend.
