Charming and comfortable cottage for two located in the guest wing of our long traditional farmhouse. We have a Swedish hot-tub and barrel sauna in the farmhouse gardens which can be booked and hired by guests for a unique elemental experience. *IF YOU INTEND TO HIRE THE HOT TUB OR SAUNA, PLEASE MAKE SURE IT IS AVAILABLE WHEN YOU BOOK* (extra cost - for price see 'other things to note' section) Through its own front door you have a small entrance hall with hanging space for coats, a cosy sitting room with log stove, books and a big flat telly if you need it. This leads to a light and comfortable kitchen dining room. This room, with its glass roof, used to be the old barrel ceilinged wash house with an old copper for heating the water. Now it has a small, simple but well equipped kitchen and a big table where you can relax and watch the cows or sheep wander past. The back door, leads up old stone steps to a tiny patio area with garden furniture, but, of course you can also enjoy the big country garden at the front of the house too. Up the main stairs there is a little landing which leads to a spacious bedroom with the best of the beautiful views across the Peak District and beyond. There is a canopied king size bed with beautifully laundered Egyptian cotton sheets in which you can oversleep and the room's en-suite bathroom has a rainfall shower. We have a large biomass boiler which provides plenty of hot-water and keeps the central heating going whenever you need it so you will be cosy and warm all year round. Walk straight from the door over beautiful Bunster hill to Dovedale and its famous stepping stones, or along the ridge of the Manifold Valley, or beyond, there are so many walks to choose from.

“Setelah membaca ulasan lain yang tersisa di sini kami tidak kecewa dengan minggu-minggu kami menginap di pondok Spinney Farm. Terkadang Anda berpikir bahwa orang lain hanya bersikap baik dan sopan dengan ulasan tetapi semuanya persis seperti yang orang lain katakan !! Indah dan tenang, nyaman tetapi tidak sempit, pemandangan bagus dan hanya berjalan sangat singkat ke desa jika Anda memerlukan bir atau sesuatu dari toko! Pondok itu sangat bersih pada saat kedatangan dengan bunga segar menjadi sentuhan sambutan yang menyenangkan. Juga menemukan BBQ arang yang bisa kita gunakan adalah anugerah karena tidak ada yang suka memasak di dalam ruangan jika cuacanya bagus !!”
