On behalf of our extended family I want to say how much we enjoyed our celebratory family weekend at Burrs Farm. What a fantastic property in a wonderful remote situation. The Farmhouse was just right for our three generation group and activities. We managed sledging and with all the snow, 2 cars were pulled out by Annie and her friend, which was apparently no trouble! Many thanks to Annie for her hospitality, and making herself accessible.

Dear Luke (Sauced Here) I just want to thank you very much for all you did to contribute to the wonderful New Year's weekend we had at Burrs Farm. It was brilliant to arrive and find all the food in the fridge and in the pantry, so easy to find everything. We can't thank you enough, it made catering so much more manageable. I really valued that, the helpful advice you gave and the easiness of using your website. Our son who cooked the lamb beautifully said that it could only be that delicious because the lamb was so good to start with. Please thank all your suppliers from us. Also thank you for trying so hard to find freesias. I would highly recommend Sauced Here to anyone booking in the Buxton area!
Roberts stayed in December '16
I have already thanked Annie Cottrell for our very special stay there and she asked if I could pass this on to you. We felt so welcome in the house. We arrived at 3pm to find everything ready including lovely decorations (it was New Year), a welcome from Annie and her helpers and all the food ordered from Sauced Here already in the fridge and pantry, plus wine in place ordered by our son. The house was wonderfully spacious, we were a party of 17 with 5 children and the bedrooms were very comfortable, the bathrooms lovely, the kitchen spacious and ideal for cooking eating and chatting. In addition the dining room was ideal for our big celebratory dinner and the games and sitting room much used and appreciated. We had well settled in by the time we needed to leave! - and could easily go back another time to enjoy outdoor things on offer at a warmer time of year. Many thanks to you all for your help and suggestions.

Webster stayed in August '16
We thoroughly enjoyed our extended “en famille” holiday to celebrate my 50th birthday and I have to say that Burr’s Farm lived up to my expectations. As an extended family of 18 or so plus friends of our children, our plan was always to spend time walking in the surrounding countryside and eat in at the farm. We were delighted to find the accommodation spacious (plenty of room for different age groups to do their own thing – we ranged in age from 3 to 83) and the cooking facilities excellent – it is clearly a house designed to live and cook in and not just somewhere to stay. Burr’s Farm came into its own when heavy rain meant that walking was out of the question and we all had plenty of space to relax in the house in our various ways.
Beavitt stayed in August '16

We have just returned from a long weekend at Burrs Farm. Where we stayed with friends for a university reunion, the house is so nicely furnished and decorated, the kitchen has everything you could need and more and a great place to socialise. The scenery was fantastic and my personal highlight was watching the sunrise on Monday morning with a watercolour sky. We did a wonderful walk to the quarry and a trip to nearby Bakewell. Not forgetting another wonderful meal at the Royal Oak on the Saturday night of course! The owner of Burrs Farm, Annie was wonderfully helpful and even arranged early check in for us. The pool table and log burners got a lot of use! We will be back!

Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay in Burrs Farm this weekend, the venue has amazing facilities and is so warm & welcoming. Thank you for the flowers, bread & biscuits. We wanted for nothing despite the stormy weather. We tried to leave it as we found it so hopefully it was acceptable. It was my daughters Hen party with 15 ladies aged 26 to 70. A lovely time was had by all. The kitchen was a lovely area to congregate & we all sat comfortably around the long table in the separate dining room. The bedrooms and bathrooms were so comfortable and stylish and we all slept well.

We had an amazing weekend and hardly left the house as it was such a great venue! As far as feedback goes it was great to stay somewhere which was so well equipped for the size of it! There was always enough cups, plates, glasses etc for everyone even when some were in the dishwasher. And the pots and pans were big enough to cater for large numbers which was brilliant. The little touches by the owner (fresh flowers, biscuits etc) were lovely!

I will be sure to write a positive trip advisor review!

Girling stayed in March '15
Our stay at Burrs Farm was absolutely fantastic. The layout of the house is perfect; excellent kitchen, dining room and living rooms and superb bedrooms with several en-suites. The surrounding area boasts great views and several nice walks, and the house itself is easily accessible by car. The lovely owner was easily available by phone throughout the weekend to answer a few questions we had. Not once were we judged for being a group of 16 lads on a stag either (sadly this wasn't the case with some other companies/venues we contacted) and this epitomised the welcoming and warm feel of the whole weekend. Several of our group will look to rent this outstanding house again in the future!

Our Top 5 Places to Visit Nearby
1. Cycle or walk the Monsal Trail
With the Monsal Trial so close by it would be rude not to take the opportunity to cycle/walk along this old Midland Railway line which runs from Bakewell right up to Blackwell Mill, in Chee Dale. The trail offers 8.5 miles of traffic free and mud free cycling/walking and with the recently reopened tunnels offers one of the most spectacular leisure routes in Britain for cycling, walking and horse riding. The nearest cycle hire to the property is at Blackwell Mill and you can also hire bikes at Hassop station which is great place to stop for a bite to eat or for a coffee and nice piece of homemade cake! There is also a lovely little gift shop and book shop and a children’s play area. If walking it also worth leaving the trail and dropping down in to Monsal Dale itself to enjoy walking along down by the river.
2. Spend a day exploring the historic market town of Bakewell
Bakewell is the largest town within the Peak District National Park and is a hub of activity. Market day is on a Monday and as well as anlarge range of stalls there is also an agricultural market which is definitely worth a look around as it offers a great insight todays farming community. The town also hosts a craft and gift fair every weekend in Brigade town hall. The Bakewell Old House Museum occupies one of the oldest buildings in Bakewell and dates back to 1543, it provides a fascinating glimpse into the towns past and is very interesting and informative with lots to appeal to all ages.Obviously no trip to Bakewell would be complete without sampling an original Bakewell pudding. The Old Original Bakewell Pudding Shop claims to have the old the original recipe and still makes the puddings by hand from the secret recipe.
