We stayed in Pinster cottage in July. It was wonderful. The cottage is lovely. Clean, spacious, fully equipped for self - catering. There's a TV, DVD, with plenty of books and reference guides on the area. We took our 4 year old son who loved it. He was bowled over the moment we arrived, when he saw the dinosaur duvet in his room that was kindly put on for him ! He loved the farm. Chris and Christine showed him around, he watched whilst the sheep were fed and they even left out a toy tractor for him to ride around in the yard. He adored the dogs (which were very gentle) and cat, and was very disappointed to leave them ! The location is perfect, just outside Ashbourne, so a good distance from Dovedale, Chatsworth and Matlock. In the evening, the location is so peaceful and very relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and will definitely be back ! Church Farm comes very highly recommended. Thank you Chris, Christine and family, for a fantastic stay at the farm ... We look forward to coming back again !

Stayed in the "upside down" Pinster which meant the bedroom was cool of a night during the hottest week so far this year.

Chistine, Chris, family and pets were very welcoming - around if you needed them but not intrusive. They've led interesting lives. The sweet peas and mange tout from the garden were nice little extras. Homemade cake on arrival as promised gave a nice start to the holiday.

They were very knowledgeable about the local area - which is great. This was an excellent base for cycling the various local trails as well as walks. About 1km from the Tissington trail in particular.

Evenings were very relaxed sitting out the front looking across the valley, watching the acrobatics of the house martins, swifts, swallows bats and .......... the resident lambs - but that's another story.

All in all a great week and would certainly recommend and go back if visiting the area again.

We booked only a couple of weeks before our stay (May half term week) as injury forced a last minute change of holiday plans. Think it did us a favour! From the initial contact through to the end of our stay Christine and her family were great hosts and couldn't do enough for us. We were welcomed and shown round by Christine, with a lovely homemade cake (still warm!) sitting waiting for us on the table. The cottage was really nicely laid out in an upside down arrangement. The upstairs kitchen/lounge/diner felt really spacious and took advantage of the lovely views out across the farmyard to the green fields and hills beyond. The bedrooms were nicely done out. The second put up bed in the children's room was comfortable (as was the main bed) but did make the room a bit of a squeeze. We were fine with this as we are used to being in a camper van (not huge amount of space!) and were only using the room as a place to rest heads but aware for other folk might feel it would be better suited a single room (which it usually is). Christine did tell us about this in advance so there were no surprises. We really liked how we were asked in advance what gender our children were so the beds could be made up to suit them (saved arguments about who got which bed too!). Outside there is a patio space with wooden furniture, a lovely spot to relax with a cuppa/glass of wine and room for the children to play in the paved courtyard (although be aware that this is still a working farm).
The cottages are in a great location for the Tissington Trail, Dovedale, Manifold Valley and all the other attractions of the South Peak District.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay and hope to go back for a weekend later in the year.

Pinster cottage was a lovely home from home holiday in June. Even with mixed weather there was so much to do we know we will return in the future. Chris and Christine were very welcoming and interesting to talk do.

We stayed in Winnets for a week in February half term, our 11, 8 and 5 year olds taking it in turns to either share the twin room upstairs or the single downstairs. Cottage is very cosy, there was enough space for the 5 of us not to be under each others feet, and having the yard outside to play with the dogs and cats really made it. The kitchen is really well equipped and cottage comfortably furnished, laundry room is great, and being able to keep our bikes in the barn was a bonus. Tissington Trail is very close, so once you've pushed bikes a short way across a field to get there, you then have scenic family rides direct from the farm - we managed Ashbourne one day, and Hartington another (Devonshire Arms recommended, but do book) and cycling round Carsington Water was also great (hefty parking fee at the visitor centre though). Walk from farm down into Dovedale also very close, and we had two days visiting Alton Towers (an easy 40 minute drive). The best thing was how hospitable Christine & Chris were - lovely people and nothing was too much trouble.
