Lovely cottage and location

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 24 Jul 2015
We really enjoyed our week at Church Farm Alsop en la Dale and stayed in Pinster cottage. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and well equipped, with our hosts Christine and Chris being very helpful indeed. The farm was peaceful with good views up the Dale, and we could see from our window cows and sheep grazing in the fields.
The farm is located just off the A 515, not far from Ashbourne and having excellent local views and good walks too. The Tissington Trail was just a short climb up the public footpath, and Dovedale was a fifteen minute drive away too or within walking distance along the river. It was ideally situated for our trips to Bakewell, Chatsworth House and Biddulph Grange Gardens.

    A lovely, clean and homely cottage in an ideal location for exploring the White Peak area where there is so much to do. The friendly owners Christine and Chris were always helpful in making sure we had an enjoyable holiday.
    Our only regret is that somehow we never got to visit the next door church!

    Just had long weekend here. Arrived to yummy home made cake. Clean comfy cottage. Great view from the living room. Children loved the whole farmyard scene especially the ponies and dogs. Scenic walks from the door. Couldn't fault it.

    We have just stayed at Church Farm Cottages, Alsop, for the third time. Although we normally stay in Pinster this time we stayed in Winnets (more bedrooms) As always a very comfortable, cosy and extremely well equipped cottage. It is extremely clean and always ready for guests. Lots of information provided plus the friendly Duffells are on hand to check everything is all right and whether we needed any information. Their thoughtfulness extends to providing delicious home made cake and having tea ready to make on arrival as well as ensuring the cottage and yard were well lit for us when we had cause to return very late one evening. Always a warm welcome. The situation is ideal with Ashbourne, Tissington, Bakewell and Chatsworth near by as well as a host of other places to visit. The Tissington Trail is just up on the main road and ideal for walking, strolling or for the more energetic, cycling. A great holiday base or just a place to relax. Ideal for all ages with chickens, ginger cat and friendly turkey to meet as well as the stunning views from the upside down cottages (sitting room upstairs). Excellent wifi helps to keep in touch with nearest and dearest if you need to. We'll be back - thank you Christine and Chris.

    What a lovely cottage to stay in. We stayed for a long weekend, with our two boys aged 4 & 7. Christine and Chris, the owners could not have been more welcoming. Even the Turkey was pleased to see us! There was tea and freshly baked cake on the table (still warm) when we arrived, the cottage was beautifully clean, cosy and well furnished, and we wanted for nothing. The boys had lots of room to ride their bikes in the courtyard and we were able to store all our bikes in one of the barns.
    The cycling in the area is absolutely superb, perfect for children as there are miles and miles of traffic free cycling paths, all built on disused railway lines, so all the hills are extremely gentle.
    I would highly recommend this gem and am sure we will return.
