"We spent a wonderful Easter weekend at Farm View Cottage with our dog. The cottage has our three most important things for a good stay - a great shower, comfortable bed, and a snug sofa for relaxing after you’ve walked all day. Communication from the owner was good prior to our arrival. Lots of information on walks and things to do in the info folder at the cottage. The new main bathroom is fantastic. The village of Parwich is really peaceful, with minimal traffic. The village pub, The Sycamore does good food. The cottage is well placed to do walks straight from the front door if you don’t want to use the car. And it’s a short drive away from lots of things to do in the southern Peak District - we visited Dovedale, Bakewell and Matlock. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Farm View Cottage and would thoroughly recommend it - many thanks."

"We stayed at Farm View for our mini-moon after our wedding. It was a beautiful cottage, well located in the Peak District. The living room was really cosy, and the fire place was something we couldn't wait to light every night! The bedroom was lovely too, and the heated mattress was a pleasant surprise. The bathroom downstairs was in perfect condition, the shower was nice and powerful and the floor was heated. The ensuite upstairs was handy too. Parking outside was no bother as well. The cottage came with lots of information from the owner and that was appreciated and useful.It was a perfect few days away to relax!!"

"We recently celebrated our first Wedding Anniversary at Farm View cottage, it was everything we wanted it to be, Parwich is our dream place to live a beautiful un spoilt village, lovely people, walks from the door and so nice to walk our rescue dog away from other dogs, a walk to cuckoo gate was so worth it, a trip to Tissington and Chatsworth house was lovely. The dancing starlings as I call them were an amazing sight over the cottage, lots of villagers with umbrellas came out to see this amazing sight at around 5.30 at night, the cottage is quirky, delightful, clean well equipped, beautiful bathroom, and lovely real fires which we were determined to light every night even though the weather was far to warm for February we were not missing out on a real fire !! Such a quiet restful place just perfect, oh and thank you for the tea and biscuits. Thank you so much."

"We visited for three days to celebrate birthdays and unwind and found a little slice of heaven. The cottage is beautiful and functional, with an amazing bathroom, cottage kitchen, quaint living room and a big bedroom with attached WC. Spread over three levels this cottage was even more beautiful than expected and set in a picturesque location were the sun blessed us with its presence every day. We spent days walking the local area, Carsington and Dovedale and totalled 30kms over three days, both of us and the spaniel had tired legs by the evenings and enjoyed a nice soak in the bath and being warmed by the fire or log burner. The village is beautiful and every one we met was friendly but due to wanting to make the most of the cottage we did not venture to the pub. We hope to visit again soon, thanks for the hospitality, the cottage was very welcoming and felt like home."

"Farm View cottage is perfect for a short break in the Peak District. It has a very well appointed bathroom, a large kitchen, a comfortable lounge and a large bedroom. It is an easy drive to Dovedale, Chatsworth, Bakewell and Haddon Hall. It is a short walk to the local pub for good food and you can also drive to nearby towns for a good selection of restaurants. We particularly liked The Saracens Head in Shirley"

"An idyllic, peaceful little cottage in the quiet village of Parwich. We stayed for a short 3 night break and thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cottage. Amazing organisation on behalf of the owners who had the cottage spotless, and welcomed us with cookies, fresh cleaning products and a heaped basket of logs and coal ready for the two fires. We adored the layout of the cottage and the sky lights in the attic bedroom. The new bathroom was stunning and the other rooms had been made cosy and friendly. We also used the bikes in the shed, one had a slightly flat tyre but all supplies were available in the shed. We visited Ashbourne, Bakewell and Casington Water during our visit all within a short driving distance. We would definitely revisit, possibly in a warmer season! Thank you so much x"

"We arrived the day after our wedding for our honeymoon absolutely shattered what a weekend, the cottage was a sight for sore eyes, idyllic. We parked up in front of the property unloaded ourselves and the dog and went inside. Wow so beautiful, full of character, we had a quick look around and fell in love, everything was the country escape we were hoping for. The bathroom took us aback finished to a modern high spec everything in pristine, perfect working order and tucked away too so as not to interfere with the feel of the cottage. Loved the indulgence of the bathroom. We didn't even need to unpack our bags in a hurry which was wonderful, as tea, coffee, milk, biscuits, both the wood burner (kitchen) and open fire (lounge) prepped just needing a match striking and relax. The fuel is plentiful and very generously provided (stayed in many properties where you source your own) the storage heaters keep everything ticking over nicely. The kitchen is so well equipped I didn't find a problem preparing any meals. The lounge on the first floor is spacious and a wonderful place to unwind after a day exploring with a good selection of books & games. Must stop falling asleep on that lovely couch!! The bedroom on the second floor was always warm which is very nice for bedtime and a nice touch was the presence of a dual control electric blanket. The village itself is extremely pretty and relaxing and the locals are also very welcoming. The little touches in this cottage made us feel so welcome and the comms with the owners and Jo the manager are fantastic. I'd highly recommend this cottage, its like chicken soup for the soul."

"We had three nights in this wonderful little cottage in the quiet village of Parwich. The very efficient wood burner in the kitchen gives the place a cosy feel and there are plenty of logs provided free of charge. It has a modern bathroom with both bath and separate wet room type shower which is great after a day's walking. Unfortunately the bedroom is two floors up, so for those of a certain age you will need to drink more wine than beer to avoid a doddering nocturnal visit. The bed was very comfortable and the lounge also very pleasant with a coal fire which we did light one evening. A young lad brought us a pint of milk when we arrived which was a lovely touch and we were warmly welcomed in the British Legion Club by the friendly locals to watch the Rugby International. Although the fixtures and fittings were fairly old, everything was clean and worked really well and there were plenty of crockery and pots and pans. There were lots of history books and maps of the area to plan walks and visits and it was obviously dog friendly but not a sniff of previous dodgy smells. We have done a few trips of a similar nature and if you want a get away from it all property I could not find fault with Farm View. Highly recommended."

"We loved Farm View Cottage, it was an ideal base for us to explore the surrounding areas, we particularly liked Bakewell and Matlock. The cottage itself is very inviting, with a log burner in the kitchen which made it a lovely room to cook and eat meals in. The bathroom and especially the wet room style shower were impressive and added a modern touch to the cottage. The living room on the first floor was very cosy and Phil made it his job to battle with the open fire everyday. We noticed that the TV kept turning itself off every 10 minutes or so, not sure if this is a fault or if we were doing something wrong?!? The bedroom was spacious, with everything we needed, it did get a little chilly up there at night but we used the little heater to warm the room up. The cottage was very homely and well equipped and furnished. We would love to visit again in the warmer months and do some more exploring! Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely cottage. It's been great!"

"I instantly fell in love with the cottage as soon as I opened the door. While not to everyone's tastes, I loved the open fire in the living room and the general character of the cottage itself. My only negative was that the bedroom was cold at nights, so we ended up taking the small heater from the living room upstairs. The village itself is very quiet and relaxed, so if you're looking to escape urban life for a small time, this is ideal. My girlfriend and I explored areas including Bakewell, Buxton, Dovedale, Tissington and Ashbourne. Ashbourne was of particular highlight, as the very friendly shop owner for equatorial told us of a few great walks we could embark upon. My girlfriend brought her Spaniel and came to realise Bakewell isn't just dog friendly, but a village full of dog lovers. So in summary, if you want a quiet, peaceful holiday with plenty of local tourist spots, great walks and amazing views, I really can't recommend this enough."

"This was the perfect escape from the chaos of London. We loved the location and the tranquility of the location. The cottage is lovely and well looked after with everything needed for a break. We stayed for a week and were very sad to leave. During our stay we visited Tissington, Hartington, Bakewell, Matlock, Ashbourne, Buxton, Wensleydale, and one of my faves Lumsdale Falls. Despite the weather being a bit ferocious at times we found drying out in front of the log burner a joy. Would definitely recommend and make a return visit at some point"

"Cant believe our luck finding this cottage. Such a beautiful place ; we instantly felt at home The cottage has great facilities and often we chose to cook next to the log burning stove. After days spent visiting Towns and walking, we were so glad to come back to such a cosy little cottage. Will be recommending the cottage to family and friends and we shall be back soon."

"Enjoyed a weeks stay in this excellent cottage, it was everything we expected and more! There are footpaths in the village taking one in all directions, the walk to Tissington with tea and cake at the tea –rooms should not be missed. The locals are very friendly and are rightfully proud of their wonderful village. We were invited to play bowls at the crown green just 200 yards from the cottage and supported the local team on match days!!"
