It has been a real pleasure welcoming guests to Middle Farm Holiday Cottages for over 20 years. The cottages are located across the courtyard from our farmhouse, so we always get the opportunity to say hello and offer help and advice with any questions. Here’s a small selection of reviews from our wonderful new and returning guests…

We had a fabulous week staying at Albertine Barn. The barn has been very tastefully converted and contained everything we could wish for. Brian and Julie, our hosts, were very friendly and helpful during our stay.
The location is beautiful and we were able to access some gorgeous walks out into the Peak District without having to use the car. We had a great day cycling on the Monsal Trail which is just minutes away.
Bakewell itself is a lovely town with plenty to offer. We can thoroughly recommend the two excellent restaurants we dined at – Raja’s Indian Restaurant and The Woodyard.
We were very lucky with the weather and made the most of it by sitting out in Albertine’s lovely garden after each day’s activities. The many bird-feeders attracted lots of birds – we even saw a woodpecker up close!
We enjoyed our time so much that before we’d even begun our journey home, we made sure we’d arranged our booking for next year.

We enjoyed the most wonderful stay in Maigold cottage. Lovely large, comfortable rooms, fully equipped with everything you could need. Very clean and well maintained, really comfortable beds. Brian and Julie were fantastic hosts who made us very welcome.

We had a lovely time at Albertine which is a great base for exploring the Peak District. The Barn is comfortable and spacious and well equipped for all ages and our dog. Our family, covering 4 generations, enjoyed walking in the local area and day trips to Tissington for the well dressing, treasure hunt in Ashford in the Water , Heights of Abraham at Matlock and Chatsworth. We would recommend the Bulls Head at Ashford for a meal. The owners Julie and Brian were very helpful and kind and fulfilled all our needs during our stay.

Maigold is a real gem. Spacious and comfortable cottage with everything needed for a holiday in the Peak District. Perfect for walkers. Some walks from the doorstep and lots of others within 10 to 30 minute drive. Delightful owners. Highly recommended. We will be returning next year.
