“Farmtastic fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012

From the moment we arrived we were truly made to feel welcome by beryl peter and marie and that is not forgetting the animals.
the accomodation is lovely and spacious,with the most delicious breakfast
the freedom you have to look around the farm and help as my kids did really makes you feel part of the team. can recommend ashbourne and buxton for a trip out
but ask jude in the morning for the best places to go to
we did alton towers water park and were a bit underwhelmed,to be honest more for littler kids
the chippy in ashboune market square was great and the georhe pub was a bit slow but very nice food (curry night tuesday)but...
THE CHEDDAR GORGE IN ASHBOURNE IS AMAZING!! PIES TO DIE FOR!!
all in all a fab time

Room Tip: the family room is more than adequate.it looks smaller than it is!

We are fortunate to have been to Ridding - great for kids!!. Peter & Beryll treat all visitor like members of the family. The kids loved looking at and learning about the rare breeds from the owners who are generous with their time and knowledge.
Sitting at the table in the kitchen overlooking the rolling hills with some of Beryll's fantastic food is a pure joy, pleasure and so relaxing.
Plenty of things to do nearby too. A great base from which to explore the Peak District.
No - I am not related to the owners, nor connected with their business in any way. We as a family return at least once (often more) a year.

My boyfriend and I wanted to do something a little different for our anniversary and decided a weekend in a yurt would do the trick. I found Riddings Park Farm on the internet and they had a yurt available at the fantastic rate of 60 pounds per night....a bargain! We arrived on the Friday and as soon as we rocked up, Beryl took us into Mrs B's T room for a cup of tea and a nice old chat. We were then allowed to wonder around the farm, looking at the ducks, goats, sheep, pigs. It was fabulous and allowed us to get really close to nature, which doesn't happen often as we live in London. We then went to our yurt, which had a big double bed, a wood burner, cooking faciilities, a table and solar lights. I loved it. There are shower blocks and toilets about twenty metres away and the yurts were clean and cosy. The breakfast the next morning consisted of bacon, sausages and eggs that were all produced on the farm - the bacon were sliced into gorgeous thick slices and tasted wonderful. Beryl allowed us to wonder around the farm and to feed the chickens and pigs at breakfast time. For children, this farm is a must - it allows you to get closer to nature and really see where our food comes from. The farm was secluded, but still only a few minutes walk from the pub, which served a wonderful fish and chips and was packed out on teh Friday night - so booking is a must. The yurts were fantastic and I didn't want to come home - even though the roosters were up at 0430, letting the world know it. However, you have to expect a rooster on a farm in the countryside and it just added to the experience. The staff on teh farm were also welcoming and friendly and even gave us a lift to the pub.
I really wish we could have stayed longer. I thought the facilities were excellent and there was always someone about if you needed them. Every yurt had it's own outside table and chairs and barbeque.
Thank you for making the first yurting experience such a good one!!

Also recommended is the Tissington Trail bike ride, where you can hire a bike from Ashbourne Cycle hire for 12.50p! Lovely views and a great day out.

Room Tip: One yurt is 20 feet in diameter and had more bed room....the others appeared to be the same size. A...

I couldn't agree more with the other reviews. A group of 8 mixed adults stayed in the Yurts over the weekend and had such a great time.
What struck me first was the fantastic staff, we had most contact with Beryl who was so happy to help and give us a tour of the farm and facilities. They were also great at giving some recommendations for local places to eat out, day trips and taxi numbers. Taking their advice filled our whole weekend with great things to do and places to eat!
The Yurts at the farm is a great place to stay, you could sit outside the yurts with the great view and soak up the atmosphere. The yurts were so comfortable and had all the facilities you would want. Great to have the wood burning stove in the evening.
We bought some freshly made burgers and got them on the BBQ on the first night and they were delicious. We all left with our coolers packed up with more provisions for home!

Cant wait to be back again, I can see staying in the Yurts as suiting everyone. A magical couples retreat, family holiday and certainly a group holiday like we did.

We stayed in a Yurt and in the piggery, it was brilliant! The breakfasts were amazing, their own eggs, sausages and bacon! Mrs B's tea room serving homemade cakes were to die for also! The rooms were really clean and the bedding smelt lovely freshly washed!
Location was perfect, secluded enough, but close to everywhere where you would wish to visit: ie Ashbourne, bakewell, chatsworth, haddon halll etc.
The Farm park was also great with rare breed sheep, pigs, cows, goats, chickens, ducks, peacocks, guinee fowl etc all which you could wander around and look at at your leisure.
The farm owners and their staff are really helpful and welcoming. Making you feel like old friends rather than B&B guests!
We will definately be back. We didnt want to leave!
