Beautiful well equipped cottage. Very convenient for outstanding walking and owners in Neil and Naomi who couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful.

“Awesome”
Reviewed 3 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

A truly awesome place to stay. Friendly hosts and pets. Facilities were really comfortable, couldn't really ask for a better place. A great place for us to use as a base, a short drive to Sheffield, to explore the countryside even when it was snowing during our time there. Could definately have stayed longer. Would be a good idea to take hiking boots and a mountain bike next time to explore more.

“Rude and controlling owner”

A spectacular setting, but the attitude of the host ruined our Christmas lunch with my siblings - he shouted at my sisters as soon as they arrived.
The day before we told him about our planned family meal and he offered us extra chairs and the use of his own oven for the turkey should we need it (we declined both politely). However on the day, without warning, he emerged from his house and railed at my sisters as they turned into the driveway. We exchanged presents and ate some of the food before parting at teatime. A lot of time, money and planning was ruined by some unprovoked, unkind words.

Anna, thank you for your review. We feel very lucky to live in such a beautiful location and enjoying sharing it with our guests. We aim to give all our guests the best possible experience we can and this includes when they occasionally invite a couple of friends round for lunch.
The house rules on our listings page clearly state that we have a strict NO PARTIES policy. We feel this is necessary because we have two holiday cottages and do not think it is fair that the behaviour of one set of guests might affect the holiday experience of the guests in the other cottage. Back Tor Farm is also our home.
As you have stated in your review, contrary to our house rules, you had spent ‘a lot of time’ organising a pre-Christmas family party with no prior consultation with us. You then presented us with a ‘fait accompli’ when you arrived – a party for 12 for 2-3 hours. Although somewhat taken aback we didn’t feel we were left with much choice but to agree.
However, as a seventh car arrived on the property 3 hours after the first invitees had arrived we became concerned that our little 4-berth cottage might suffer from the amount of footfall. Our concerns were expressed but politeness was maintained at all times. The party continued for much longer than 2-3 hours.
We take on board your review and will now always check that guests have read and understood our house rules at point of booking to avoid any confusion on either side.

“5* luxury in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 17 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Our first time in the Peak District. A long weekend away from Friday 13th October - Monday 16th October.
We have stayed in many cottages up and down the country over several years but The Cowshed is by far the best. Just when we think the last place we have stayed in couldn't be improved on we are surprised!
First of all Neil and Naomi are the most friendly down to earth owners you could have the pleasure to meet. The cottage is immaculate, very homely with 5* luxury rooms and touches. Fresh flowers picked from their garden were on the dining table plus
to have homemade jam and bread plus milk and butter and ground coffee and teabags waiting for you is wonderful.
The modern kitchen has everything you could want for your stay, the lounge furniture is the most comfortable we have ever had, we didn't use the log fire because we were blessed with barmy warm October weather, it looks stunning as a focal point of the room.
Upstairs is like walking into a 5* hotel rooms, both bedrooms have the most comfortable of beds with plenty of storage space. Both the main bathroom and en-suite were true sparkling luxury, even had bathrobes provided.
Outside was just as immaculate as inside. Picture postcard.
Back Tor Farm is ideally located for short walks, long hikes and great drives.
Everything you see has been done by Neil and Naomi and their passion for this place shines through every tiny detail.
I am quite confident is saying that after years of holidaying in cottages that they have perfected the perfect high end holiday cottage stay
We will be back very soon but this time for longer.

“Perfect base for exploring!”
Reviewed 11 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Myself, wife, 2 year old daughter and working cocker spaniel had a great 4 night stay!

Beautiful and immaculately clean cow shed conversion with a cosy living room and fully equipped kitchen.

With great walks and mtb rides from the door, you could easily get away without using your car once you arrived.

I'm not one for writing reviews but I can't emphasise how much we enjoyed our stay!

Thank you so much Neil and Naomi!
