From the moment we arrived for our stay at Winnets Cottage we knew we had made the right choice. I was born in The Midlands, but moved to Canada at 16, and coming back to the area was my choice to celebrate my 60th birthday. We could not have made a better choice! This cottage was a great home-base from which to travel, and a very comfortable accommodation for the week of our stay. A beautiful greeting, replete with a home-made Victoria Sponge (mmmm!) from our hostess, Christine, started the week on a great note - thanks to Christine's granddaughter who made the cake. Having the opportunity to meet Chris and the guys working on the next barn conversion, and meeting the dogs and Tessa the Turkey added to he enjoyment. Also, learning more about the Gloucester Herd, and getting a special private trip in the Land Rover to see these beautiful animals was an extra-added bonus - thanks to Christine's daughter Claire for this special field trip, which was literally a field trip. We also received advice on local attractions, shopping, places to eat and drink (The Coach and Horses - very good!), and even some assistance in trying to get an unusual package shipped back to Canada. All-in-all, a great week spent in the Peak District, made extra special by our fine hosts amid a lovely country setting. We look forward to our return in a few years.

Room Tip: We stayed in Winnets cottage, but I imagine Pinster is laid out just a well. I don't think...

    We've just had a wonderful week in Pinster Cottage. The cottage is well equipped and cosy and had the most amazing views across open fields. When we arrived we were welcomed with a home baked cake and lots of helpful advice for touring the area by Christine and Chris. It was the perfect base for our two boys (13 and 15) and ourselves to enjoy all that the peak district has to offer, walks to Dovedale, long cycle rides and a trip to Alton Towers. Our youngest son particularly enjoyed spending time with the dogs, cats, turkeys and chickens in the farm yard. We would definitely recommend this cottage and may well be back soon.

    Mum and I stayed at Pinster Cottage which was a great base to explore Derbyshire. Easy to get to and peaceful location within large courtyard. Beautiful surroundings, with a very interesting little church next door. The Cottage was very comfortable with the a well equipped kitchen. So much to see and do we ran out of time so will be going back there. Discovered some lovely villages and some quality pub/restaurant meals. Breakfasts and some evening meals in too, as the kitchen was so well equipped it was like home from home. Christine and her family made us feel most welcome. All in all, well worth a repeat visit.

    We have just returned home after a lovely weeks stay at Church Farm. Our 2 children (6&8) and ourselves had a fantastic week in Winnets cottage and exploring the local area. The children loved the ride-on tractors that were provided for them and the cats, dogs and turkeys that came to spend time with them in the excellent enclosed yard! The cottage was clean and tidy and was easily big enough for the 4 of us and was stocked with everything we needed. Christine went out of her way to ensure that we had a restful stay and had lots of advice about the local area to share with us. We had some wonderful family days out; Alton Towers is very close and there are some excellent family-friendly walks around the local towns and villages, Dovedale valley being especially lovely.The farm is in a lovely quiet area and the view from the windows is gorgeous, just what you would want in a Peak District holiday.

    This is the most amazing venue for a holiday. We had a week staying in the lovely and well equipped Pinster. We couldn't have been made more welcome. In fact we have come away feeling like close friends of Chris and Christine. The area has so much of interest to see and do. We had to restrict ourselves to not too much walking and even then there were so many attractions available. To come 'home' each evening to the Farm Cottage was great. Wonderful food available to bring back and also great pubs. A holiday never to be forgotten.

    Oh my gosh, what a wonderful place. We have just returned from four nights in the Winnets cottage. There were 4 adults and one baby and it was comfortable, clean, well equipped, homely accommodation. My 16 month old daughter just loved waking up to the horses, sheep, cows, turkeys, dogs and of course Doogle the pony! It is also a good location to see other areas but be away from the busy towns...a really awesome place for some "down time", long walks/runs and exploring of the Peak District. Christine, Chris and their family were just wonderful with regards to their knowledge of the area, their friendliness and welcoming. We will definitely be going back!
