This was our 2nd visit as we thoroughly enjoyed our previous stay. It is like home from home, only with the added bonus of a spectacular view! The owners are very welcoming and the accommodation and garden are just lovely. A great base for exploring The Peaks and also for a peaceful, relaxing break.

Beautiful little cottage with amazing views from the kitchen window. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in The Dairy. There is quite a long farm track up a hillside to get to the property but our Toyota managed it well. The cottage is well equipped and very comfortable. There are just three rooms to the property: a bedroom, a bathroom and a living roomRead more/kitchen. Super cute and cosy! Loads to do within the area and plenty of places to visit for food or a drink just down the road in Matlock Town. Hide

This cosy cottage commands absolutely superb views from its elevated position - It exudes tranquility! The uphill track to it is long and winding through fields of grazing cattle. It is a very relaxing place to spend a holiday with plenty to do in the area along with good pubs and restaurants - if needed!
