OCTOBER 2021, CHRIS AND RACHEL FROM IOW
A lovely time as always. Probably our favourite place to stay in the country (3rd visit). Always amazed how well stocked the cottage is, especially the kitchen. Thanks for a lovely stay until next time.

Thank you for a lovely stay at The Robins. Cosy cottage and lovely gardens. Great for seeing the area and managed to get to Crich Tramway Museum, Bakewell, Buxton and Matlock Bath.
OCTOBER 2021, KEV, CHARLOTTE, HARRY (7), GEORGE (5), FREDDIE (30) FROM BATH
We’ve had a wonderful week, almost entirely dry and warm. Thank you for a super welcome Barbara. We’ve walked up Stanage Edge and Mam Tor. We cycled the Monsal Trail, enjoyed visits to Chatsworth, Bakewell, Linacre Reservoirs and the Heights of Abraham. Thanks for a great week.
SEPTEMBER 2021, DAWN AND MARTIN FROM BATH
A perfect spot with some great walks directly from the front door. A lovely cottage that worked well for us to drop our son at Sheffield Uni and allow us the opportunity to explore the wonderful Peaks.
Suspect over the next 3 years we will be coming here quite a bit.
SEPTEMBER 2021, PHILIP FROM ESSEX
Been coming here every year for the last 11 years and stayed in both The Swallows and The Robins. A real home from home and Barbara and Allan make me feel so welcome . There are always new things to go and see. Bakewell, Castleton, Chatsworth, Matlock Bath, Padley Gorge, Monsal Head, Chesterfield, Snake Pass, Hassop, Baslow Edge, to name but a few.
Will be back next year.

Allan and Barbara welcomed us on arrival. Lovely tarts and wine.
Had a lovely relaxing weekend, lovely clean accommodation and everything we needed. Barbara is on hand if needed with plenty of recommendations. Would highly recommend The Peacock at Barlow – great food and ambiance.
