We have recently returned from our fifth visit (and our sixth visit is already booked) to Spring House Farm Cottages – we stay in Harry Eye with our 2 grand children joining us for our first weekend and their parents stay in Shippon Cottage. Being about a mile from the road means that kids are safe and the animals are a great distraction.
Both cottages are well equipped, very comfortable and immaculately presented with lots of homely touches.
We can sit and watch the newborn lambs gambolling in the field (about ten feet away) and the hang gliders over Mam Tor from the sun trap garden at the back of Harry Eyre. Even if the weather is unkind the thick walls and warm fires keep us snug.
There is always a very warm and caring welcome from Maeve, Mark and Alice and their 5 four footed friends (3 horses and 2 dogs) not only for the humans but for our dog as well. Two stables are adjacent to Shippon with further stabling adjacent to the menage and paddock.
We cannot recommend Spring House Farm Cottages more highly as a holiday base for the beautiful surrounding Derbyshire countryside. Located at the crossroads of two walks, the villages of Hope and Castleton can be visited “off road”. The climb to the top of Lose Hill is rewarded with spectacular views over both the Hope Valley and Edale with the option to walk along the ridge to Mam Tor.
Try the cottages …... you will be as “hooked”as we are.
