    "A very comfortable place to stay. The owners were extremely helpful and we had a very warm welcome. Ideal location for visiting Staffordshire and Dovedale. Lovely walks all around and even from the front door. We had a very enjoyable and relaxing break."

    "We were four couples staying here so one bedroom was unused and there was even more room downstairs to enjoy the space and comfort. Having stayed in 20+ similar properties over the years, this will rank as one of the best, for comfort, facilities, location and efficiency of booking etc. We particularly liked the large, modern kitchen and the space around the dining table and the large lounge area in the huge open double height area. TV and sound systems were the best ever. In fact all the rooms and bathrooms are appointed to a very high, modern standard. Also loads of parking in the old farmyard and the other property across the way did not intrude at all. The two local men who live in the old farmhouse were very friendly and were good to chat to about the area and advise about where to go.We did not know the area before and would highly recommend The Cow Shed as a base."

    "Very nice barn conversion in a great location. Close enough to lots of different places to visit whilst still having a rural feel. Barn was well laid out and equipped for three generations, age 3 to 73, to feel comfortable in."
    Nigel ‐ 26 Aug 2018
    "Great barn - big, open plan living / dining. Large well equipped kitchen. Really enjoyed the week and would highly recommend."
    Francesca ‐ 26 Jun 2018
    "Beautiful Barn, set in an idyllic location. Perfect for 10people lots of space and comfort for everyone. Short walk to the local pubs and shop who were very welcoming. 20 minute drive from the Peak District National Park. We had a fantastic weekend away and look forward to returning next Summer."

    "Three generations of one family celebrating a birthday. The Cowshed was everything we were expecting and more. Lovely house, with plenty of room for everyone, in lovely surroundings. The Cowshed had everything we needed for a perfect weekend. The children loved exploring the nearby woods. Gary and Ken were really helpful and nothing seemed too much trouble. We were sad to leave and would definitely go again ."

    "An exceptional cottage finished to a high standard. However it let itself down on a number of things which are all easily solvable. It had too few outside seats for the number of guests the cottage holds. The cooker’s oven and baking trays were not very clean at all and had to be cleaned before use. The oven discharged black oily smoke the first time we switched it on which was very unpleasant. The oven trays need to be replaced. This would not be an expensive outlay. The oven could also do with a professional deep clean. The food cupboard, holding past guests’ excess food etc held some things that were out of date. These were “binned”. A quick check before occupancy would have avoided this. The kitchen floor whilst looking stunning, was a tripping hazard with several of our guests catching their footwear on the slabs due to low grout. I would suggest that in a kitchen environment with hot liquids etc this was undesirable. The cd rack in the inner hall was a jumbled mess with broken cd cases and cds just dumped. We were told that there would be enough wood for at least one fire. Two or three logs do not In my opinion constitute enough fuel for one fire. However due to good weather we didn’t need to use the log burner. We found the owner and family member on site very friendly and helpful. I hope you find theses comments constructive and useful."

    "The Cowshed was perfect for our family gathering to celebrate my Dads 80th Birthday. It is spacious, well equipped, clean and tidy. The location is very peaceful with lots of interesting places to visit close by."
    Geoff ‐ 21 Apr 2018
    "Excellent in every way! Great accommodation. Spacious and well equipped."
    Ada ‐ 14 Apr 2018
    "Lovely barn conversion in an ideal location to visit Alton Towers. We were a party of three generations and the space provided allowed us not to be on top of each other. Sadly the weather was not kind to us so we were unable to enjoy the outside space. A minor consideration is that all the beds were very firm mattresses and may not suit everyone’s back and allow for a good nights sleep. Overall we had an enjoyable week and the owner was easily contactable should we have had any concerns."
