    THE OLD DAIRY sleeping up to 3 guests

    Boasting dramatic panoramic views, this stunning barn conversion is situated in a rural location, yet only a short distance to Matlock.

    In a stunning elevated position above Matlock, in the heart of Derbyshire and situated on a working farm, these holiday cottages (refs rggj, rhhb and UKC1593) enjoy stunning panoramic views across the surrounding Derbyshire countryside. The Old Dairy (ref rggj) is a single level barn conversion close to the owners’ 16th century farmhouse. The Old Workshop (ref rhhb) has contemporary comforts and elegant touches to make your stay truly memorable, and The Old Parlour (ref UKC1593) is a barn conversion that has been renovated to provide guests with luxurious accommodation.

    Although they are set in a truly rural environment, the popular Peak District town of Matlock with its extensive range of country style shops, pubs and restaurants, is just 1 mile away.

    A host of attractions are available on the doorstep, including the walk from Matlock to Riber, which offers spectacular scenery from the viewpoint at the front of the famous Riber Castle. Further magnificent views can be enjoyed from the cable car at neighbouring Matlock Bath, 3 miles, which is also home to stunning riverside gardens, a theme park for the young ones and at the right time of year, superb illuminations. The fabulous historic houses of Chatsworth Estate and Haddon Hall can be reached in around 30 minutes’, as can the popular market town of Bakewell. Buxton with its diverse architecture and famous opera house can be reached in around 40 minutes’ and the beautiful Hope Valley scenery and honeypot village of Castleton with its show caves, is around an hour away. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
    These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 11 guests.

    Helen – 30 Nov 2018
    "Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. Would definitely recommend and plan on returning."
    ALF – 23 Nov 2018
    "We received a warm welcome and the cottage was very comfortable. Our only disappointment was that I had failed to realise that the lawned area was not accessible from the cottage but was just across the lane. This was a disappointment for us because our dog now has wheels and needs a great deal of assistance, so our stay would have been easier with direct access to grass. However in terms of location, it was lovely and rural and yet only a few minutes' drive into Matlock. We were staying in order to visit Chatsworth and Haddon which were both just 30 minutes' drive away, so that worked well."
    Claire – 13 Nov 2018
    "We had a lovely relaxing stay, a warm welcome and surrounded by fantastic scenery with great walks on the doorstep. Would definitely recommend Hearthstone Farm."
    Mark – 28 Oct 2018
    "Generously equipped property. Owners very helpful."
    jimbo – 1 Oct 2018
    "This is our third time at this cottage its also clean and very comfortable. We are always made welcome and there's always cake and wine which is very nice. Also most of the pubs in the area let you take your dog which is a plus point."
    Susan – 16 Sep 2018
    "A stunning cottage in a beautiful, tranquil location but not far to drive to all the "must see" places. Would recommend this 100%, as would Danny the Irish Setter who spent a blissful week chasing rabbits!!"
    Sally – 1 Sep 2018
    "Fantastic holiday!"
    Carlo – 29 Jul 2018
    "Superb countryside location, beautiful garden and views. Quality fittings and furniture. During the heatwave the cottage did get very hot, no way to cool it down, other than to open windows. Would suggest curtain linings in bedrooms to make it darker. However these are minor comments on what is an excellent and beautiful property. Which we would have no hesitation in staying at again."
    Andrew – 7 Jul 2018
    "Loved it. Nicely off the beaten track, with loads to see and do within easy reach. We had a great time."
    james – 25 May 2018
    "excellent holiday, we were made welcome again even though this was our second visit. third visit coming up in September of this year.That says it all!!!"
    Pam – 12 May 2018
    "A lovely cosy cottage , well equipped with every thing you need. A beautiful shared garden with amazing views. Location is good for visiting lots of places without having to travel too far."
    Jules – 21 Apr 2018
    "Lovely place to stay, location is great very quiet with beautiful scenery. Cottage is lovely, well looked after. Only thing that let it down was the shower curtain (hate them) also grout in shower & plug hole in basin could do with a tooth brush & bleach to freshen them up... Joyce & daughter who run it look after you well. Upon arrival we were greeted with Lemon Drizzle cake, Red wine & lovely roses in a vase."
    maria – 7 Apr 2018
    "Had a lovely week based at The Old Dairy. Was made to feel very welcome by our hosts who were there if we needed them but non intrusive. Cottage was very well equipped and had everything we needed and more. A great base from which to explore the surrounding area."
    Elaine – 24 Mar 2018
    "I would recommend this cottage to anyone that loves the countryside. It has stunning views and great walks on the doorstep. Very well equipped and we were made to feel welcome. Will be booking another weekend away again soon."
    Katherine – 3 Mar 2018
    "A home away from home with a beautiful view."
