We only stayed for three nights but felt right at home! The cottage is very homely, cosy and just the right place to relax. Equipped with everything one needs for a break away, beautiful touches to the interior and clean facilities didn't let us miss anything. The cottage is in a beautiful spot of the peak district and invites for walks, hikes, or just pure relaxation surrounded by peace and quiet. The village with plenty pubs, restaurants and shops is just a short walk away and is also very pretty and welcoming. Such a great find. Thanks Denise & David!
After being to Riding House Farm many times and staying in Milkmaids Cottage, we tried afew days in the newly completed Grooms Cottage, a fantastic 1 double (the comfiest king size bed ever!), 1 twin cottage, with a lovely spacious kitchen, dining lounge area, well equipped, lovely furnishings in the most glorious setting on a working farm, with the friendly hosts David and Denise at hand, not forgetting Peg and Bella the dogs. Walks from the door to Mam Tor, or into Castleton itself, perfectly situated would highly recommend
Have just returned from a week in Shepherds Cottage, together with our 2 labs. Lovely spacious cottage, warm welcome from Denise who came to see us as we arrived. The view from the cottage is stunning and beautiful. Welcome gifts of wine, chocolates, orange juice and flowers - so generous. Husband had some long interesting chats with David and our 2 labs loved Bella the Labrador. We struggled to find a cottage, and could not believe this was available. Highly recommend this cottage.
We have just returned from our fourth visit to Riding House Farm, specifically Shepherd's Cottage. As usual we had a wonderful time, we always feel very welcome and comfortable there. It is warm and relaxing, we enjoyed the fresh air, peace and quiet and beautiful views. We feel very at home in the cottage which is always spotless and has everything we need. We hope to return very soon.
This self catering cottage for two was so well equipped that everything you thought you might need was soon to be found. It was warm and comfortable, and we received a friendly and welcoming reception from the owners, who then went out of their way to help when we asked to borrow some items when entertaining friends. If you enjoy walking, or justy getting away from it all, there could be no better place to stay.
