Picturesque location within a short drive of towns and cities as well as the Peak District.
It was a pleasure staying at Birchenfields farm, Derek and Vivian welcomed us and showed us around the premises. There was myself and my partner and two teenagers and the cottage was plenty big enough to accommodate us. The cottage was very clean and it had everything that we needed, barring cooking oil which they provided as soon as we enquired about it. There were many facilities that we didn't get the opportunity to use, mainly the onsite entertainment games room. The location was ideal for us to spend time in the Peak District and then head into Stoke-On-Trent when we wanted to. I would highly recommend this place to adults with or without children.
Arrived and shown our accommodation and other amenities by the owner. On first glance there still needed a lot of work to be done in the games area. As we needed to cook for ourselves due to dietary requirements we found the kitchen to be very good with plenty of bits and pieces we needed.
Lounge was comfortable and cosy. The master bed was a double or maybe smaller, well it seemed like that so I slept in the other bedroom. The double was not very comfortable (needs some convoluted foam on it). The next morning we went to shower, well that was interesting the mist, yes mist that came out would was a small baby it lucky and the water temp fluctuated some what. we then walked outside, bang straight between the nostrils, the smell was unbelievable. Down the road is a working dairy and the smell from it or the fertilizer on the paddocks was unbearable when u were outside.
No I would not stay there again. The 3 Stars are for the kitchen, laundry, cleanliness of the unit and outlook (from inside).
Lovely,quiet and clean with friendly owners
A lovely place to stay,from the minute you arrive you are made to feel welcome.The cottage was well kitted out with everything you could need,and the play barn was great for keeping everyone amused when the weather was poor,our dogs enjoyed the paddock as well where they could have a run about.
Thanks for the lovely review, we try our best to provide a pleasant experience. With that in mind we continue to develop the facilities here, hopefully you will return sometime and see what we have achieved. You were excellent guests and are welcome back at any time
Lovely cottage, every little detail thought of by the owners, even able to make a cup of tea upon arrival as milk and tea made available. Fresh free range eggs by their own hens left as well. Derek and Vivian were extremely accommodating and on hand if required. Would definitely recommend and would happily return
Thanks for taking the time to review Birchenfields and being so positive in your comments, its a great help when guests let us know what they thought of their stay and it is s reassurance when we receive such nice comments.
We live on site and are available to help but we try and keep out of the way and let our guests enjoy the facilities such as the play barn and friends and families meeting room. By early next year all three cottages will have dishwashers, improved kitchen units and the play barn will have its own toilet and there will be a kitchen for the meeting room to better cater for larger groups.
Hopefully we will see you again
