Description

A cosy holiday annexe for two with a log burning stove and lawned garden. Carsington Water is within walking distance and Ashbourne just four miles away.

These attractive stone holiday cottages enjoy their own driveways and pretty, lawned gardens. Green Farm Cottage, (ref RPP6), adjoins the owners’ 17th-century farmhouse, and Green Farm Stables (ref RFFQ), stands detached. Tucked away down a little lane, they lie 500 yards from the heart of the attractive old village of Hognaston, which stands on a hillside overlooked by Hognaston Wynn. Many houses in the village date back to the 17th and 18th century, as does the pub. Within walking distance is beautiful Carsington Water, offering superb water sports, sailing and bike hire facilities with an area devoted to wildlife along with cycle and walking trails. Located on the edge of the Peak District, the cottages are just 4 miles from the picturesque market town of Ashbourne known as the ‘Gateway to Dovedale’. Other places to visit nearby include Bakewell, Matlock Bath, Haddon Hall, Chatsworth House and Keddleston Hall, as well as other National Trust and English Heritage properties. It is only a short drive to Dovedale and the other lovely dales of the limestone White Peak District, which offers great walking. A little further afield, visit Alton Towers theme park for a great day out for both adults and children alike, who will also enjoy Go Ape at Buxton. Why not spend a more relaxing day at the potteries in Stoke. Shop 2 miles, pub 500 yards.

Living/dining room with wood-burning stove and sofa bed (for alternative sleeping only). Galley-style kitchen with tiled floor. Rear hall/boot room. Separate toilet. First floor: Double bedroom with 6ft bed (can form twin beds) with en-suite shower room and toilet.

    Disappointed when arrived at 4pm (in November) no heating on at all, cottage took a long while to warm up. Instructions to light fire said use firelighters, but there weren't any & no matches either. Central heating boiler clock was wrong by over 2 hrs so cottage was always cold when we returned from day out. Owners were next door but we felt these things should have been attended to without us going knocking. Never saw the owners except when we first arrived & owner didn't know how long we were staying or our names. We wondered if we were expected?? We had phoned & left message on answerphone with eta. Cottage was very comfortable.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Many thanks for your feedback and we do apologise that your stay didn’t live up to your expectations. We use a caretaker to prepare the cottage but unfortunately it appears on this occasion not everything was properly prepared as normal. We have reviewed these procedures now and can assure you this won’t happen again. We have tended to find customers normally like to be left alone when they are with us and raise any queries as and when they crop up. However we apologise if there was something you wanted to discuss. We are just next door and normally always around to respond to any questions or queries.

    Had a lovely weekend at the cottage. It was a bit difficult to find but we did arrive when it was pitch black. Everything plus more was inside of the cottage and it was a perfect weekend get away!!!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Apologies it was dark when you arrived, one of the light bulbs had gone and this had tripped the outside lights. We are glad you had a lovely weekend at the Cottage and hope to see you again soon!

    Overpriced compared to similar properties. Poor privacy. Doors to the owner's adjoining house in the living room (beside the sofa) and in the bedroom (beside the bed). Noise and cooking smells coming through. Conversations audible. Low and sloping ceiling in the bathroom and shower. Low doorways and light fittings. Very uncomfortable sofa.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback on your stay at our cottage. We are very sorry that it did not live up to your expectations. We have over 7 years of making our cottage available to guests and are very proud of our long held great record. However, we should never be complacent and we should always try to listen to our guests to make improvements. With your comments in mind, I thought that you might like to hear what action we have taken to improve our offering. Firstly, we have tackled the sound-proofing between our farmhouse and the cottage. We have decided to block the interconnecting door between the cottage and our farmhouse and have insulated the space between the doors. We have carried out a number of interesting tests to determine the sound-proofing and were pleased that it is much improved. We were sorry that the sofa wasn’t comfortable for you. We were originally advised to have a sofa bed to allow a young family to stay but once it was bought, the policy unfortunately changed. Now is a good time to invest so we have ordered a brand new sofa, one which is much larger to allow our guests to stretch out and truly relax. Regarding the bathroom / shower with the sloping roof, there is unfortunately very little that we can do short of changing the roof design of the cottage not something we can do to a listed property. We are considering removing the shower and replacing it with a corner bath but we would like to take some views from our regular guests before taking such a big step. We would welcome your thoughts on this proposal. Finally, we have also taken the opportunity to make a few other improvements; we have changed the sanitary wear in the downstairs loo and have redecorated. We are also dedicated to making our guests feel welcome and have improved our free welcome pack on arrival. Many thanks for your feedback. We would love to welcome you back so that you can see the improvements for yourself.
