    Fantastic location and lovely comfortable cottage. It was so peaceful and we loved the french doors looking out on to fields. There are so many walks in the area and it's really nice to visit the tea shops around and about. This is our second stay and we would like to return.

    Lovely cottage in a very quiet area. A little remote but perfect for a relaxing getaway.

    Our week at garden farm cottage was the ultimate unwind. Knowing that local amenities were scarce we took lots of supplies and settled down to peace and quiet. A couple of local walks, two very good pub meals, but primarily the comfort of a warm cosy home with excellent facilities; and even a sprinkling of snow. We've been telling all our friends.

    The cottage was very comfortable, and the owner was very welcoming. The views from the cottage and surrounding countryside are outstanding. It would however be very useful to have wi-fi available in the cottage.

    We had a very good break even though the weather was wet tor the first 2 days. It was a very good spot to allow easy visits in a number of locations. The cottage was very comfortable and we were very satisfied with the accommodation.

    We really enjoyed our stay in this cottage which was like a home from home. The large garden was great for the kids. The village of Illam was very pretty and there was great walking directly from the cottage. Owners very nice but not intrusive and Home baking on arrival was a treat.

    Everything you would expect from a country cottage, with a stunning location included.

    This cottage was lovely and clean and well maintained. We loved the gardens in which it sits allowing dog to wander endlessly. Everything worked fine at the cottage and remember towels are not provided which is in our experience unusual but was made clear when we booked. The owners live in the adjoining house and were always available if needed, We loved the remote location with lots of lovely walks and the National Trust Ilam Park within walking distance. However the remoteness means there are not any shops or pubs etc within a few miles for us this was not an issue and added to the lovely feeling of remoteness. We have rented many cottages in Derbyshire and this is probably the best proportioned and the nicest grounds. As a family we have never returned to the same location as we like to move around but we would break this rule here.

    Response on behalf of the owner. Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. For the benefit of future searches, our house is across the courtyard from the cottage – not adjoined. The Izaak Walton hotel is about one mile away and the hotel bar is frequently used by our guests as it has a welcoming environment and serves very good bar meals; the hotel also has a full service restaurant. Other pubs serving meals are within 2 – 3 miles. Guests comments and feedback are important to us and we take on board all suggestions. We look forward to welcoming David and his family back to Garden Farm in the future.

    Almost perfect. Some attention to mould on shower head required. Otherwise no problems. Area and setting of cottage lovely.
