The reviews on here are for Study Farm Barn which is the larger property. This review is for the newly finished Study Farm Cottage which is beautiful one bedroom rental property. I booked this cottage for my parents who are both in their 60’s and don’t have a Trip Advisor account. The booking process was very easy and communication with Jayne (the owner) was faultless.
In regards to the stay, I’ve got information from my parents to report back!
They had an amazing time! The cottage is immaculate, beautifully decorated and fantastically clean. There are very few one-bed cottages in the area and the pricing is around the same as you’d expect to pay in a Travel Lodge so excellent value for money and a unique offering. The cottage is perfect for a couple but there is room for a travel cot if the couple has a young baby or toddler. Jayne has paid particular attention to detail which gives the wow factor as soon as you walk in. The cottage is really well stocked with a dishwasher, toaster, kettle and plenty of cutlery and crockery something that is often lacking in rental cottages. Jayne kindly left milk and eggs, the latter of which was delicious. The living room is exceptionally cosy making it a perfect place to snuggle up in during the colder evenings. The bedroom is well laid out with lovely decor as well.
The village of Bonsall is delightful with two really nice pubs, The Kings Head and The Barley Mow as well as a gorgeous tearoom called ‘The Fountain’ with an adjoining shop/deli for essentials. All the places that they wanted to visit were only a short distance from the cottage, Bakewell, The Heights of Abraham, Matlock and Cromford Mill but there is still lots more that they wanted to do in the area so I think a revisit could be on the cards.
Overall, this is a gem of a find. Jayne and her husband have done an amazing job with this cottage, a lot of love, care and attention has gone into it which is shown in the results they’ve achieved. Jayne is a wonderfully warm, friendly hospitable person and you could not wish for a nicer host. We would highly recommend Study Farm Cottage and hope to visit again soon.
