New Harborough Farmhouse is an utterly wonderful old farmhouse that provides a superb holiday retreat. Within its thick stone walls and under its traditional beamed ceilings you will find a magnificent lounge, separate dining area, superb kitchen, five bedrooms with wonderfully comfortable beds, four bathrooms and even two log burning stoves. Add crisp white bed linen, fluffy towels, cashmere throws, original works of art, and lovely antiques and you realise this is a very special place to host a family escape.

The farmhouse is one of a group of cottages, converted from the old farm buildings, situated in its own secret valley surrounded by farmland (a working farm lies just beyond). The High Peak Trail for walkers and cyclists is close by. Carsington Water with its wild water sports, cycle trails and birdwatching is just over the hill. The lovely historic town of Wirksworth with heritage railway, heritage trail, Northern Lights little cinema and many a pub and restaurant is just five minutes' drive away.

There are also lots of other Peak District attractions in the surrounding hills. Matlock Bath with its cable cars and riverside promenade is not to be missed. Magnificent Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are just up the Derwent Valley. Venture beyond famous Bakewell and you are in the real Peaks with sparkling rivers, picturesque villages, incredible views from the gritstone edges and country pubs galore.

Fabulous house, we can only echo the previous comments-wonderful location. Great pubs for food-special mention to Ye Olde Gate, Brassington and Miners Arms, Carsington

Previous Customer,

Such a lovely stay in this peaceful and comfy home exploring many great places. Especially loved the Duncombe Arms and walks up to the top of the hill looking out across Derbyshire !

Larkin family,

Very well presented house in a lovely area. The views from the bicycle rides exceptional. Mam Tor ridge takes some beating. Most enjoyable. Many thanks.

Previous Customer,

For Eleanor's wedding. What a fantastic weekend thank you very much !

Previous Customer,

Lovely property and excellent space for two families (we were 4 adults and 5 kids ranging from 3 to 11). Very nicely furnished throughout and pleasant garden space out front - great for the kids to play. Really well equipped kitchen and lovely bathrooms. Clearly a lot of thought has gone into making the place as comfortable as possible. Loads to do in the local area and Wirksworth is a pretty little town only 5 minutes drive away that has a lovely French bistro and a small supermarket. The cottage is in a lovely spot which is very peaceful with a great short walk up to Harborough Rocks directly behind the cottage which has a panoramic view for miles across the surrounding countryside - a great spot for sundowners of an evening. Worth mentioning that there is a small factory just over the hill nearby that creates some light and low level noise at night but it didn’t bother us at all (and couldn’t be heard indoors). The beds were so comfortable we all slept brilliantly - kids included! All in, really lovely accommodation and highly recommend.

Mrs L,

This spacious property was spotlessly clean and furnished/decorated to a very high standard with lovely artwork on the walls. The quality of the kitchen equipment was excellent and there were lots of little touches that really made it feel like our home for the week that we were there. Such comfortable beds with quality duvets and linen - and even the fittings in the bathrooms were premium quality as well! I can't fault the dealings we had had with the company representatives, who were all highly professional and very helpful. I would definitely recommend this lovely holiday property and also Original Cottages as a company. Five star from us all!

Mrs B,

We've had a fantastic stay in this lovely house. We had a great welcome from Tony and Maxine too.
