|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
Situated down a quiet country lane within the hamlet of Riber, the towns of Matlock and Matlock Bath are only a short distance by car. Located on the edge of the Peak District we have the best of both worlds, conveniently placed for local attractions and shops, but off the beaten track. With beautiful walks directly from the door, the cow shed is a great base in which to explore the Derbyshire countryside. Please visit our website www.thecowshedlittlemoor.co.uk
A gorgeous, bright and cosy cottage, with everything on hand that we could have needed.
Beautiful, compact and bijoux, lovely quiet location.
A lovely place to stay, decorated wonderfully with lots of quirky little bits and pieces.
The cottage is a beautifully converted cowshed. The owners have a beautiful eye for detail. A lovely welcome hamper awaited us. The log fire was set. We could walk from the door and Matlock is an interesting place to visit. Any small problems were quickly attended to.
What a lovely find. Had a relaxing few days. The cottage had everything we needed and lots of lovely little touches on top. Welcome hamper was a real treat. Log burner was bliss. Can't wait to return. Thank you
We decided to escape London for the weekend and came across this lovely property online. We were welcomed with a wonderful hamper of local produce and quickly made ourselves at home in the cosy living room. Anna has a real flare for interiors and the space has been well considered. We went for a long walk on the first day up to the Heights of Abraham and found ourselves in a local pub for lunch the next day when the weather wasn't so good.
We spent 3 nights in this cottage and enjoyed every moment. We were blessed with reasonable weather but the owners made us really welcome. The cottage was clean and well stocked with the necessities. The wood burner was a treat! There are many walks around this area - many from the cottage itself. Easy access to Chatsworth House and matlock.
Perfect location for just pottering - or more strenuous walks.
Very comfortable cottage - ideal for 2.
Go - and enjoy yourselves.
The cow shed is a great place to stay if you want something a little different.
It is clean and tidy and well presented. There is a road a few yards outside but you only get a few cars passing so its very quiet.
A log burner is the main heating which warms the place very quickly.
The kitchen has all the mod cons you would need, the shower room/toilet is not big but then it dosen't need to be. The rain shower was great.
The owners are helpful and friendly and have lots of info on the local area, where to eat/visit etc.
We hope to return soon.
Just spent a lovely week at this beautiful cottage. Set in a lane with few cars and wonderful scenery. As a regular stayer in cottages I have to say the facilities at The Cow Shed were second to none. Everything you could want in a holiday cottage. Anna the owner provided a lovely hamper of food and wine on our arrival and was accommodating and also gave us details of local places to visit and eat. The cottage was clean throughout and the wood burning stove was cosy. We didn't know when we booked but we were able to watch the Tour of Britain. Really felt part of the friendly town. Would definitely reccommend the cottage.
