I was apprehensive about going on holiday alone for the first time but at Blakelow I needn’t have been. There is such attention to detail to make you feel welcomed and at home that I never wanted to leave.
Right from the very first time you enter the driveway and Steve is there to help you unpack and settle you in, you feel an amazing calmness about the place. He is there throughout your stay to check if there is anything you need and generally bring a smile to your face.
Chestnut Cottage, opened in 2010 for the single traveller, is a wonderful haven of cosy charm with all modern amenities on hand. The décor is classy and tasteful and there are high quality furnishings, as you would expect from such an establishment.
The welcome hamper is a fabulous touch to make you feel special – wine, chocolates, bread, cookies, butter and eggs from the hens – as well as having tea, coffee and milk waiting after your journey.
The location is great for Chatsworth, Bakewell, Matlock and the Peaks.
I would recommend Blakelow Farm Holiday Cottages to anyone and I really hope that I will be able to go back one day myself.
