Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Highly recommended stay
We stayed at the Cow Shed in August! It is situated in a breathtaking rural location with stunning views. The property itself is beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The welcome hamper and local guide provided were wonderful additions, and the farm-produced goods were a delightful touch. The location is perfect, with a short drive to Bakewell and a lovely walk to the magpie mines. The hosts were incredibly helpful and responsive, always ready to answer any questions.. Thank to Julia 🙏My children had the amazing opportunity to feed the goats one evening, which they absolutely adored. I cannot stress enough how much I recommend booking your stay here - in fact, we've already rebooked for another visit!

Fantastic
Fantastic Few days stay, Immaculate property. Only managed 2 nights due to daughters mocks, so wish it could have been longer. Weather not as good as it might have been, but managed to eat most meals outside absorbing the amazing scenery. John and Julia are perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble. I can’t remember the last time I was so relaxed or slept so well, if you can manage to find a slot in their busy holiday booking diary, grab it you won’t regret it !

A fantastic place with beautiful views
This new holiday rental is a real find, very luxurious and beautifully presented. We rented the Cowshed along with the other rental available here, and spent a weekend as a group in the Peak District. The Cowshed itself is fantastic, and has everything you could wish for - including being all on one level to make access easy. My family and friends were so very impressed with this place, they absolutely loved it. The owners were incredibly helpful and made sure that our stay was as enjoyable as possible, and provided barbecues and a games room full of things to do for the children - from board games to a table tennis table and even a pool table! The views from this location are to die for, and there is even a site of historic interest only a short walk away. It is perfectly situated for access to Bakewell and the Peak District, and for walks to the nearby Monsal Trail. We had a great time and would love to return in the future!!

We couldn't have wished for more - brilliant
Really fantastic accommodation - comfortable, beautiful and clean. Stunning views of a lovely part of the country and close to some really pretty villages. Will definitely return as we were made so welcome. Great for walking and cycling.
