This barn conversion is ideally located to explore the Derbyshire Dales area of the Peak District National Park. With Baslow and Curbar Edges on its doorstep, you will be hard pressed to find better local views than from these gritstone walks. Or, for those adventurous types, rock climbing makes a thrilling alternative to a gentle stroll, while also taking in those stunning panoramas. The village pub, Bridge Inn, serves tasty local food to follow those long and exhausting days out.

Originally the village cobbler’s shop, the property is accessed via the patio area into the kitchen. This room is compact but includes everything you should need for your stay and has been decorated in a country farmhouse style with terracotta floor tiling, cream painted cabinets, wooden worktops and exposed beams above. Once you’ve finished preparing your meal, step down into the cosy sitting and dining room. With a beamed ceiling, exposed stone wall and pretty window, this is a relaxing space to unwind and enjoy your evening meal. Upstairs, the bedroom is very inviting, with its apex roof, skylight, exposed beam and bright, modern en suite.

If the weather permits, step outside into the patio area to enjoy a glass of wine in the sun. If you are booking with friends, why not rent the adjoining Lower Barn to accommodate four guests in total.

The cottage was lovely, a very beautiful area. A nice touch with tea, coffee, milk and biscuits ready for a much needed drink when we got there. As a dog friendly accommodation I felt that it would have been nice to have a fenced off area for the dog. Lots of lovely areas to walk right on the doorstep.

Nice location with some excellent walks. The cottage was basic but was fine for a short break, a few more comforts would not go a miss, the sofa needs replacing as it was not at all firm. Shower is difficult to operate, either scolding or freezing.

Lovely location - a short walk up onto Curbar Edge or down to the pub! Compact but makes very good use of the space, the living room doesn't feel cramped. Upstairs is well designed too although if you're over 6 foot you do stoop a little. Good TV with smart apps, sofa could do with replacing.

Nice cottage, comfortable. I was able to take advantage of the skylight window and literally sleep under the stars while listeningto the owl in the distance. All your basics provided, but if you are planning on cooking while at the cottage, bring an oven tray with you. If you have a massive fear of spiders, this is not for you. Nice bathroom, showeRead morer no bath. Overall I highly recommend. Not very dog friendly as the area is stoned and nothing to stop your dog wondering off while door was open. Hide
