Orchard Cottage is a cosy, beamed cottage with its own terrace overlooking orchards, and has been converted from 18th-century stables and furnished in traditional style with modern rustic-chic additions such as the Antler Horn Chandeliers and blue and white tiled oak staircase. Spacious and well-equipped Kitchen with Rayburn Oven and matching blue/white tiles adds considerably to the cottage charm.
Modern touches such as a multi-functioning microwave oven, induction hob and electric oven (due in Autumn 2014) give customers a choice of cooking equipment. The chunky pine dining area with views down the courtyard to the chickens, takes customers back to a more innocent age. The cosy wood burner adds romance to the lounge whilst the wall-mounted smart TV allows the customer a great viewing and interactive experience.
New updated fixtures, fittings, furniture and curtains throughout. The discreet bathroom with toilet, sink and bath is approached via the newly tiled and oak stairs. The bed is nestled on the mezzanine overlooking the cottage ground floor. It is unashamedly romantic and our customers love it, struggling to drag themselves out. Access to Award-winning gardens.

We came here for a week of destressing and we certainly got that! Stunning cottage and location! Had a lovely walk in the hills at the Lady Bower Reservoir and stopped off at some great pubs! Even cooked a Sunday dinner on the Rayburn without burning it. Amazing week! Thank You!

We have really enjoyed our stay here, where we’ve celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary! We love the easiness of this cottage and the fresh eggs and the wood burner. Especially it has been great to meet Mel and we’re grateful for the hospitality of this family. A lovely getaway!

Thankyou for a wonderfully relaxing break. The cottage is beautiful and so comfortable and the surrounding countryside is gorgeous. This was just what we needed. Also the Christmas decorations were a lovely touch. We hope to visit Horsleygate Hall again. Best wishes.

A wonderful week helped along by Mel and Maddie. Looking forward very much to 2018. This took me back a few years, some sad and most very happy times, my wife would have loved it. Only sorry that the week went so fast. Ate too much, drunk too much, spent far too much but it was a holiday! Thank you, David.

We’ve had the best time ever! Having our wedding here has been so wonderful. Our guests absolutely loved the venue, it looked stunning and Mel and her team (especially Maddie and Lucia) worked tirelessly in the lead up to the wedding and on the day. No issue was too big or too small for them to handle. It really was perfect, we will remember it forever and will be eternally grateful! Thank you so much. Xx

Thank you so much for a fantastic week! The cottage is beautiful, so homely! We love the open plan and the quaint but modern style throughout. Great location to explore, we managed to squeeze in Bakewell, Dovedale, Eyam, Hardwick, Castleton, Matlock and Chatsworth! We need another day to recuperate! The Angel and the George are lovely pubs and dog friendly, and a great walk too. We took Melanie’s advice and went to the Tickled Trout for tea, fantastic, devastated that there isn’t one in our area! The location of the cottage is lovely with Gardens to explore and Chickens! Dogs have loved the new smells! Thank you so much, we hope to be back soon. X
