We really enjoyed our short stay at Barbara's. Barbara was a great host and an excellent cook and we loved the homemade breakfast. The room is very comfortable and well equipped, we had a great view of the garden which was very well maintained. Overall, a great place and recommended for a short stay within the Peak District

Fabulous views into the Peak District, very warm welcome from the hosts with tea and biscuits served in a spacious communal living room which doubled as the breakfast room. The bed was very comfortable and the room had tea/coffee making facilities plus it was quiet. The bathroom was compact but very clean. We could walk a very short distance to a good pub/restaurant.

Barbara greeted us at the door and made us welcome. The room was spacious, well equipped and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was more than ample.

Very warm welcome from Barbara and Allan who obviously put a lot of care and attention to detail into their B&B. The room was lovely, light and clean and comfortable, and breakfast was great - tailored to our order and vegetarians well catered for, which isn't always the case! Barbara was only too happy to help with any questions about the local area. Highly recommended!

Cow Close Farm is beautiful!! The room was very cozy and breakfast was amazing! Barbara and Allan are very helpful and accommodating and were always available if we needed anything. The house is located in a lovely area with farms all around. Stay here if you can!

Allan, my husband and myself are retired teachers who just love living at Cowclose Farm. Allan plays golf and we both look after our large gardens. Both of us enjoy good food and wine. Fortunately Barbara enjoys cooking. We are well-travelled and delight in sampling different foods and cultures. We love welcoming guests to our home.

Our 3 granddaughters play an important part in our lives. They love cooking with Grandma and gardening and cycling with Grandad.

Both of us enjoy classical music and the theatre. We sometimes have performers staying with us.

As well as B & B we have 2 holiday cottages - Cowclose Barn.
