Property code: PK454

A converted barn that enjoys stunning rural views and a cosy yet bright and airy interior. Walking distance from the local pub and access to a trail into the parklands of Chatsworth House.

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.

No need to carry on searching for somewhere to stay in the Peak District, this cottage is perfect! The pictures dont do it justice, its so much nicer in person. We were only in the cottage in the evenings, but it was well equipped for everything youd need. So cosy and clean. Would definitely stay here again.

A really cosy, quiet cottage. Had a very comfortable stay (2 adults and a border collie). Bed was really comfy and super ensuite bathroom. We had a Tesco delivery whilst there (the guy did have to ring me to find us) but useful to have that service. Wonderful circular walks from the cottage. We walked along the river to Grindleford, stopped for a dRead morerink at the Sir William pub, and then walked up to Curbar Edge and back to the cottage. Another day we walked to Chatsworth via Baslow. Fantastic. Hide

The cottage was adorable & cosy. Relatively easy to find. Me and my partner don't drive; only staying for the near by walks and a quiet get away. Is a struggle to walk about the area as a lot of the main roads are unpathed (and unlit) , but we managed with the use of a torch. Utensils and utilities were great. Included everything you need, includinRead moreg towels and a blanket (to my joy as I forgot to bring one). Provided with books and dvd's which is a lovely touch. Very much enjoyed our stay :) Hide
