  • Unwind in front of the wood burner after a day spent exploring Buxton, 13 miles away
  • Enjoy a game of darts or a table tennis tournament in the games room

Property code: OC-DCOLDD

A two-storey property, decorated to a high standard, with design nods to nature throughout. It would suit a large family or group of friends with attractive scenery to be found all around. The picture book village of Hartington is home to archetypal rural shops and pubs; its duck pond as much a talking point for visitors as the scenic footpaths leading towards the likes of Dovedale (8.5 miles) with its famous stepping stones. Farther afield, the thermal spa town of Buxton (13 miles) boasts stunning Georgian architecture and many independent shops, pubs and restaurants. History lovers will find the hours easy to lose at Haddon Hall (12 miles) and Chatsworth House (15 miles)

With a fresh, thoughtful colour scheme and furnishings, this property has been designed for get-togethers that span the generations. Guests can lose themselves in the comfort of the lounge seating as a wood burner warms the room. The conversation is sure to flow in the open-plan kitchen/diner, off of which lies a handy utility room and an en suite double bedroom. There are three beautifully finished bedrooms upstairs. Up one staircase you will find two super-king-size (or twin) rooms along with a family bathroom. Up a separate staircase is an en suite double bedroom.

The partly enclosed outside space is equally attractive, with a patio that skirts the property leading to a lawned area with garden furniture and a portable barbecue for al fresco dining in the shade of an old tree.

Wonderful location and comfortable clean cottage. Shower in downstairs bedroom was unreliable sometimes v hot and sometimes cold. Basin in upstairs smaller room was difficult to use due to shelf also would be better to have a shower in that bathroom rather than half bath and a spray with no shower curtain. No mirrors in bathrooms. Nobs on drawersRead more in smaller king size bedrooms come off so difficult to open them. No oven gloves provided which was a problem and quite dangerous. No logs provided but we requested these and they arrived as it was cold. Clock needed a battery so we bought one. No milk in fridge on arrival so we had to wait for our shopping delivery before having a cuppa. Good welcome pack provided strange no milk. Was good accommodation and comfy beds but v expensive considering the issues we raised above . I am sure they can be rectified easily. Although noticed several people commented in previous reviews about no mirrors in bathrooms and they are still absent. It is priced at luxury level so was surprised things were not as perfect as they could have been. Hide

Beautiful house in the most charming village of Hartington. Lovely bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could think of. Plenty of space for 8 and a great dining area with the wow feature of the double staircase. Lovely lounge with comfy furniture, a huge tv, and a log burner. Only lit the log burner one night aRead mores we were lucky with the weather ( sunny and warm) - and it certainly added to the ambience in the evening. The beds were heavenly - like sleeping in a cloud - all our family said how comfy they were. The only comment to make really is they need mirrors in the bathrooms. Unfortunately, we had no mobile signal in the area, which made communication difficult - but good Wi-Fi in the property. The gardens really lovely too, we had the tables and chairs out on the lawns - and used the games room in the garage too, a lovely location to explore the area - Lots of walks for the energetic and a lovely place to relax for the not so. A must-visit in the village is the Cheese Shop, and we picked up fresh eggs every day just outside the shop - pay in honesty box . We had a lovely holiday with family from near and far. Definitely recommend. Hide

Comfortable and well equipped cottage which was ideal for seven of us and two dogs, although it is a bit of a disadvantage having to keep them on the lead due to the sheep in the adjacent field. This was clearly pointed out in the description of the cottage so no complaints from the humans but the dogs werent too happy!!

Property was not dog friendly as advertised, sheep escaped from the field next to the property into the garden every day. Cleaning: Cobwebs everywhere, food debris under cabinet by stairs, standard was raised by previous visitors who left a note for the cleaner.

Dishwasher not working on arrival, zero salt in machine, we purchased and replenished, this is poor maintenance. Bare aerial wire behind tv, several other wires not connected. I do not believe this property should be advertised as Luxury, we have stayed in much better and cheaper properties that were finished to a much higher standard, and spotlessly clean. Hide

The Old Dairy was a well appointed property in a great location. Many different beautiful walks from the doorstep. Every amenity in the village so the car never moved all week. There was plenty of room for three couples to enjoy their own space and come together for meals or relax in the comfortable lounge.

The Old Dairy is a lovely property with exceptional standards of furnishing and so well equipped. We had a great stay there and it is perfect for 2 families of 4.
