A warm and charming welcome (home-made mince pies!) in a location convenient for some of our favourite walks in the Peaks. Our room was clean and comfortable, and Barbara and Alan's award-winning breakfast really does deserve the awards. Absolutely smashing, and my first batch of oatcake batter is rising as I type.

Lovely warm welcome, scrupulously clean and very comfortable beds. Nice comfortable sofas in the lounge and superb breakfast. Ticked lots of boxes for what we were looking for for a one night stay whilst visiting Chatsworth which is only 4.5 miles away. Opposite a very friendly traditional pub which served good food. (Infact, use the pub as a good guide for where to turn for the B&B as they are virtually opposite and in the dark/dusk the pub - The Gate Inn - is more noticeable).Would definitely come again. For the very picky though, be aware that the Orchid twin room is not ensuite (not a problem at all for us as the very large and spotlessly clean bathroom was only at the other end of the hallway) and you are asked to give your breakfast order for the following day shortly after you arrive, which could be a niggle for some, but, bear in mind that does get you a fabulously fresh and tasty breakfast with locally sourced items and unusual choices such as home made smoked salmon fishcakes. See the full menu here http://www.cowclosebarn.com/documents/menu2.pdf. Lovely views from the bedroom window and TV with freeview channels as well as a well stocked welcome tray in the bedroom.

A big thank you to Alan and Barbara for the warm welcome and an immaculately prepared cottage (Swallows). We had a fantastic albeit damp weekend in which we visited nearby Chatsworth and several restaurants, a special mention to Heather at the Gate Inn just footsteps from the farm gate of Cowclose. highly recommended.

Super one night stay in this awesome B&B. Lovely view of garden and countryside from our room. Tea and cake on arrival was a super start and it just got better and better. Much of the food is homemade or local so you may need to stay a few days to sample it all. I had kippers for breakfast which were yummy ! This was a great part of our hollibobs ! Thankyou Barbara.

My partner and I stayed here for just one night in June. I can`t sing the praises of this beautiful B&B enough. We were met by a smiling Barbara and offered tea and cake to refresh us after our journey. We were given the Rose room which was lovely. It overlooked the back garden and stunning scenery, not to mention the cows which we watched with some amusement for quite some time..The only negative comment I can make is that although it was the middle of June (the weather was not very nice and it was very cold), we felt that some heating could have been put on in the bedroom during the evening.We had gone for a meal to the super restaurant/pub across the road and by time we had walked back we had both got very cold and a warm room would have been much appreciated. Other than this the stay was very pleasant and we would most definitely want to stay here again. Perhaps would like to try their Self Catering cottage which also looked very nice.

Set in the lovely Peak District National Park, Cowclose Farm Bed and Breakfast accommodation is superb. The farm is situated in an absolutely stunning location on the edge of the quiet village of Cutthorpe. Barbara and Allan were the perfect hosts warmly welcoming us with homemade cakes and tea. During our stay nothing was too much trouble for them and they catered for our every need. We stayed in the Rose Room, a sunny spacious en-suite room which was beautifully furnished.

There was an extensive breakfast menu and we had a hearty breakfast every morning of our stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and definitely hope to return again.

Room Tip: Choose the en-suite Rose room

It is 12 months since our first visit and we found everything just as good - this time our stay was only one night as it was to break the journey home from a trip down south and we stayed in the Orchid room which is the twin room without the ensuite, but the bathroom down the corridor was large with option of bath or shower and it was spotless as was the room which looked out over the back garden and countryside, breakfast was excellent with a huge choice on the menu. We ate at the Gate Pub in the evening across the road which is really handy. Barbara was very welcoming and friendly as per our previous visit and welcomed us with tea/coffe and cake - the room has everything you need tea/coffee facilities, tv and the beds are very comfortable - there are also dressing gowns provided for trips to the bathroom - we will definitely return - location is very handy for Bakewell where we visited before returning home and also the Chatsworth Farm shop which is a favourite with us.

Room Tip: We prefer the Rose Room only because it has the ensuite
