About the property

Holiday Home in Chelmorton, Peak District, Derbyshire - Less Than 5 Mins Walk To Pub and Playground, Very Peaceful, Stunning Location

Nestling at the end of a quiet lane in the village of Chelmorton, the cottage is in it’s own secure grounds with lawned garden areas. It enjoys superb views of the surrounding landscape and especially of Chelmorton Low. Have cosy nights in by the fire, or afternoons and evenings sat on the large patio, admiring the views and the sunset with a glass of wine! Jolly Field Farm makes an ideal base for walking, climbing and biking and is just a short drive from historic towns Buxton and Bakewell. It is especially well suited to larger parties with its large, well-equipped family kitchen, large games room with table football and pool table, plus plenty of space for the kids to play in the expansive garden. Comfortable accommodation with exposed beams, wooden floors and wood burning stove.

About Ruth Russell


Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed staying at Jolly Field Farm.  The accommodation fitted our needs perfectly.  The grandchildren made full use of the games room, toys and games.  The adults really raved over the spacious and well-equipped kitchen.  We liked the setting and the accessibility to a lot of the attractions in the area.

Had booked to stay elsewhere for a friends 30th but unfortunately due to a spell of severe weather we had to reaarange - high praise for Rachel (where we were planning on staying) as she sorted Jolly Field for us!! Ruth was ever so accomodating as she had squeezed in a large group of us in at the last minute and my were we very impressed! A tardis of clean, lovely decorated rooms PLUS a sneaky games room!

The cottage is simply beautiful with stunning views over the peaks and very spacious as the 10 of us never felt like we were in each others pockets. The kitchen is impressive and the log burner fire felt very cosy. Ideal for a relaxing weekend away and the local pub, The Church Inn served tasty food and reasonable prices.

I slept in the smaller double bedroom at the top of the stairs (next to the bathroom) which was a little snug for 2 people so I'd probably recommend a single person to sleep in there but we adapted to the room well. The WiFi wasn't the best but wouldn't expect anything less for 10 people connecting at the same time. Perfect opportunity for people to speak to each other!!

All in all a fabulous weekend, where we made a lot of wonderful memories. We couldn't have made it so special if it wasn't for Jolly Field Farm! Just a little disappointed for 2 reasons - that we only stayed for a weekend and that we discovered the tree swing as we were leaving!

Highly recommended - will stay again for sure! Ease of interaction between Ruth and I was spot on too!!

Spacious, clean, warm and well-furnished

  • 4 of 5

Ideal for our reunion of 10 people. very clean and tidy with all conveniences (three fridges!). Effective central heating, and cosy wood-burning stove. Easy to walk out into the countryside and excellent pub round the corner! Only two snags: the shared toilet flush needs a new diaphragm in the siphon, and the rustic metal door latches on some of the bedroom doors were quite noisy in operation.

We turned up and didn't know what to expect after reading the bad review, but I can honestly say it was great, we must have just missed the cleaners as when we arrived the floors was still wet, the place is very welcoming, I cannot fault the bedrooms, the beds are very comfy and I slept in the attic room and I'm 6ft.. It also has sofas in most rooms down stairs if you just want to crash out..the kitchen is perfect it has the normal electric oven and hob but you need to use the aga, "cooking made easy" don't be afraid of it just use it!! And you can easily fit 10 round the table..The games room is cool, with a pool table which has a good cloth and a good table football, there's also a fridge for your beers, there's plenty of space outside with a large table to sit round and have fun.. All in all a great place which we will visit again..

Delightful stay at Jolly Field Farm. Great amenities. The cottage was spotless and we were well catered for. Booked in for a party of 10 we especially enjoyed the games room with the pool table and table football. Stayed for three relaxing nights and had great fun. We'll definitely be back.

Perfect for 2 week stay whilst working in the area

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Jolly Field Farm. We work at a biannual event in Buxton and need a base nearby for our workers. This place is perfect and fits all our needs. Ruth is very accommodation of us and understands we are not using the house as a holiday stay, just somewhere to eat and sleep after a hard days work! Would definitely recommend.

You DO NOT get what you have paid for.


Kitchen - a permanent 'sick' smell. Told to use bleach !

Games Room - Foisty & damp smell, disgusting. NO dart board or Bar

Dead & CRUSTY flies all over cottage, only outdone by the number of cobwebs everywhere.

Bins full for 4 days before you can put out rubbish

The place is a disgrace and there is not enough room for me to write what I would like.

Just book somewhere else, its awful.

John & his very upset family.
