The cottage is beautiful and has everything you need. My kids absolutely loved being on a farm and the owners went above and beyond to make sure they enjoyed it, showing us animals and the tractor and sharing all their outdoor toys. We felt so welcome and will be coming again!

Owslow cottage exceeded all of my expectations, the place itself is such a warm and rustic place. It is perfect if you want to explore the peak district and stay somewhere cheap and affordable. Natalie is a great host who replied very quickly to us. We would highly recommend the alpaca walk with Natalie, you can tell the enthusiasm and passion she has for her alpacas which is so refreshing.
