Had a fantastic stay in the Diary, Vivian and Derek are lovely and couldn’t do enough for us. The cottage is really well equipped with everything needed for a very comfortable stay. Added bonus of a brilliant games room which kept the kids occupied for hours.
We have a 12 week old son and a 2 and half your old daughter and trying to find suitable accommodation is always very hard but the set up at Birchenfields is fantastic. The cottage was beautifully presented with a cot, highchair and baby bath already in place on our arrival plus tea and coffee to get us going which was a lovely touch. We stayed for 4 nights and spent lots of our time on the premises as it was so nice spending time together and we couldn't keep our daughter out of the play barn, playing with all the toys, singing and dancing to her favorite CD's it was wonderful.
Thank you to our wonderful hosts as they explained everything on our arrival and were always happy to help. We will be back!!
Recently enjoyed a 2 night stay with 2 kids aged 3 and 6. Convenient location for Alton Towers. Lovely pub with great food at the end of the road. Very private with friendly owners. Kids particularly enjoyed the play barn. Facilities in house were good. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again if visiting this area or returning to Alton Towers
I needed to find bank holiday accommodation for 14 people and a dog...not easy but Birchenfields Farm was perfect. The accommodation is extremely clean and very well equipped with every thing you could need for a self catering break. We took over all three cottages and made use of the sofa beds too.
The best and unexpected thing was that in the "play barn" there was an enormous table where we could all sit together to eat which made it very sociable. The play barn itself worked brilliantly for us as it included air hockey, table tennis and snooker which kept the youth in our party occupied.
The area is very rural and beautiful and we had some fantastic local meals. The only thing that let us down was the weather - but that's England!
I'm sure we will be back...
we had time for a short break holiday and at the last minute we were able to book in at the Dairy cottage. Eveytthing was 5 star with all amenities of the highest order. The setting is very private and of a relaxing atmosphere. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners. They made our stay so special

We spent 3 nights at Birchenfields and thought it was excellent value for money. Apartment was really well furnished with everything we needed. Hosts were friendly and helpful. And a great games room we would have liked to have had more time for. Would happily recommend and hope to go back again soon

We have just returned from Birchenfields Farm (we stayed three nights over the bank holiday weekend). We are a family of four with two young children (ages 6 and 3) and found this to be a nice place to relax in the country. My eldest son was particularly amused by the chickens and thought it was great to help to feed them and to collect fresh eggs for breakfast. Derek and Vivian are very welcoming and friendly and will accommodate your every request. The farm is approx 1 mile from the Huntsman pub which is an easy walk along the country road and has a small beer garden with a play area. We also managed a walk through numerous fields to another pub called the Royal Oak which did a nice Sunday lunch. We had glorious weather and spent most of the day on the Saturday relaxing on the farm with a BBQ and some drinks. The boys were able to go in and out of the play barn to play table tennis/pool etc, which kelp them entertained. We also spent an evening in the summer house playing cards and board games. The cottage itself if smaller than others we have stayed in but is good value for money and has everything you need. I would recommend this place without hesitation.
