After a busy day exploring the surrounding area, the private garden with a rustic hot tub (available at an additional charge) is a great place to relax and unwind. Double glazed with underfloor heating downstairs and centrally heated throughout, this barn is perfect for families and groups all year round.

Cutthorpe has three pubs (two within walking distance that are dog friendly), all serving food. It has a pretty village green and benefits from panoramic views over Chesterfield with its famous crooked spire. The village is located on the edge of the Peak District National Park, yet is only 3 miles from the popular market town of Chesterfield. Its perfect location allows you to explore historic houses, walking, cycling and visiting the tourist towns of Bakewell, Matlock, Castleton, Buxton, Eyam and Hathersage. If its stately homes, castles and gardens you would like to visit, the magnificent Chatsworth House is only 10 minutes drive away; the grounds and house will provide a full day out.

We had a wonderful break in The Pig Sty for Half Term 22nd-29th May. The cottage was really lovely with everything you would need. Fantastic views from the enclosed garden, especially seeing the rabbits & the cows! The hot tub was a great bonus, nice to relax in. Great dog friendly pub just up the road & lots of other walks near by. Mike & Karen are very welcoming & friendly, nothing is too much trouble. Don't want to recommend it too much in case it gets too popular & we are unable to book again!!

We had an absolute fantastic time at The Pug Sty. We'd booked all 3 cottages and went as a family group. The owners, Mike and Karen were so accommodating and made us feel welcome and at home. Nothing was too much trouble. The location is beautiful, with views over the beautiful countryside from our bedroom window. We really cannot fault these cottages, or the hosts! Would love to visit again in the future ๐Ÿ™‚

We had a great family holiday at The Pig Sty. It's in a gorgeous location, surrounded by countryside and lovely walks. There is lots to do nearby and for food and drink, the Peacock Inn is a 5 minute walk away. The cottage itself is clean and well equipped, and Karen and Mike are wonderful hosts - they really go the extra mile. The hot tub was a big hit!

Anna 04/08/2021

A lovely cottage near many local sites of interest. The cottage was superb. Our hosts, Karen and Mike were very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our week away and would not hesitate to book the Pig Sty again or one of the other Green Farm cottages.

Wonderful location and beautifully appointed, cozy cottage set in a lovely little courtyard. The hosts, Mike and Karen are so hospitable and โ€˜the storeโ€™ provides for DVD loans, games, books, guides and walking routes- a welcome touch. At the end of a long walk, the wooden hot tub was just what the feet needed!
