“Absolutely superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2011

On arrival we received a wonderful, warm welcome from Steve; nothing was too much trouble for him. The cottage was magical. It was warm, (we were kept well supplied with logs for the fire), cosy and romantic. The table was beautifully laid with a fantastic welcome basket there for us, including eggs "from the girls". The entire cottage was spotlessly clean and the bed so comfortable, with really good quality bedding. We loved looking at the stars from the overhead window.
Even in February there are lots of things to see and do in the beautiful area but we were drawn back to the peace and beauty of the cottage where we enjoyed our evening meals with a well equipped kitchen. There is a good DVD library as well as ice cream to enjoy when watching! We are looking forward to our return.
If you want a complete break in the Peak District, with walking from the door and first class accommodation look no further than Blakelow Farm Cottages.

Blakelow cottages is a fantastic place to stay. Our weekend started by being introduced to Steve who is a lovely guy and instantly made us feel welcome, We stayed in candle cottage and were blown away by the attention to detail, style and atmosphere of the place. All weekend we were pampered (indulging in the complimentary welcome hamper provided by Steve) and relaxed and didnt once think about work!

I couldn't recommend this place enough and I urge everyone to try it!

Our second stay at Blakelow. As soon as your arrive Steve makes you feel so welcome. As you walk through the cottage door it literally takes your breath away. Steve's attention to detail is exceptional and the welcome hamper so thoughtful. Last time we stayed in Christmas cottage which has a wow factor - it was summer time and there was so much to do and see within a short drive. This time we stayed in Candle cottage and yes another wow factor, it is so cosy and romantic. Although our stay was in winter there were still plenty of places to go but it is so easy just to stay put and relax. The girls (Blakelow's Hens) always produce such tasty eggs, we savoured every last morsel. In Candle cottage we laid in bed looking out of the overhead window - the stars were so bright you felt you could almost touch them, fantastic. We will definitely be returning.

We arrived in the snow and it continued could not use the car so we walked every day in the snow which was cold but beautiful. It was useful having a couple of villages near by
Steve was a great host and we were well looked after.The cottage was everything we hoped and was very clean classy and welcoming ,with everything you could need a bonus was all the goodies Steve had organised.We could not leave on our departure day because of the heavy snow so we were snowed in for an extra day which was not a problem in such a beautiful place.We have found somewhere special and will return

We returned to Candle Cottage at Blakelow Farm for our first wedding anniversary having had such a wonderful time there for our honeymoon. This time we could only stay for three nights but it was an amazing holiday. Steve gave us a fantastic welcome as ever and we settled in immediately. The new sofa is a great improvement (the leather one looked gorgeous but this one is easier to lounge around on!) Due to cold weather and a husband with bronchitis we spent most of the holiday in the luxurious surroundings of the farm. With an extensive DVD library, log burning stove and fully equipped kitchen we has everything we needed and more.
Can't wait for another stay.

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.

Superb location, within easy travelling distance of the whole of the Peak District, ideal for walking and sightseeing. The cottage was so relaxing and well presented that you didn't need to leave. Steve is a superb host and his attention to detail is first class. Our 5th visit and we plan to go back next year. Steve does amazing special event meals for guests and the food is locally sourced and wonderfully cooked.
