    We booked this house as a group of women with small children. We were very disappointed in the overall cleanliness of the house. It was grubby and dusty at best and downright filth in some places. When we arrived there were sheets missing from beds, toilets unflushed, more light bulbs out that working and a dishwasher full of stinking dirty dishes. You can't control the heating yourself, so have to ask for it to be put on and off at certain times which left us freezing in the morningsame but baking in our beds at night. We made the best of things and had a good time the 3 nights we were there and for a low budget holiday it gave us what we needed. Despite its faults we would stay again. The whole farm and house is in need of some serious tlc and maintainence

    Great house, just a bit dirty, didn't like the fact you had to call the neibour when you wanted the heating on or off, mattresses needing renewed, would stay here again

    We have stayed at Home Farm House before and our granddaughter requested that we return for her 21st birthday. But for that we most likely would not have returned, I spent the first day of our prior visit cleaning before the rest of my family arrived. The cleanliness was far superior to last time, but the linens would benefit from an update. The owner is very helpful and accommodating. While not luxurious, we were very comfortable.

    1.The cooker was in a terrible state and was obvious that the caretaker/owner had not taken any care to make sure it was clean for the next occupiers. 2.There was a very dirty dish cloth strewn across the kitchen sink. 3.The bedding in the double room was an insult to anyone who had paid money to stay in the property. 4.The single and double bed springs were protruding and uncomfortable. 5.The shower in the bathroom was very off-putting. The property had a lot of cobwebs around the windows. Also we found the garden/play area very run down.

    The house needed a vacuum and the dish washer had the previous occupants dirty plates in, looks like they had not turned it on properly, should have been checked by the cleaner.

    We've stayed here before and love the house and the location. Friendly owner and deliver logs in the evening so we can keep the fire going. Loads of bedrooms and space for 3 families to get together. We always enjoy our stay here.

    We absolutely loved our stay at Holme Farm House. The house is charming and in a wonderful location. The owners were friendly, welcoming and very helpful. The rooms were well maintained with plenty of comfortable clean bedding and towels. We didn't use our car all week, content with the surrounding park and farm. It's a holiday we will remember for a long time and nobody wanted to leave. The kitchen was well equipped other than the lack of baking trays, although with a bit of creativity we managed to cook for 8 people every night including a full roast dinner so it wasn't a big issue. Will definitely return one day, we truly had a magical time.

    Had a lovely stay at Home Farm. The house was big enough for 10 people and two dogs. Fantastic location, right next to Markeaton Park where there are some fantastic activities, so many we did not get time to do everything. The owners of the property where very nice, we called for some more wood and it came later that day. Only comment would be that it could do with some more baking trays and oven proof dishes to cook in, but don't let that stop you going as it is a lovely old house. The house was clean, it is a very old house but full of character. The cafe at the farm next door was lovely, especially the full English breakfast on our last morning. The Garden Centre next door is worth a visit, especially leading up to Christmas with their Christmas display. We will definitely come back.
