Lovely barn conversion is sat in the heart of a working dairy farm. The owners have taken great care and attention to ensure the barn provides you with everything you need for a home from home stay.

Popular Tansley village is nestled on the edge of the Peak District, next to the market town of Matlock, the perfect base to enjoy tranquillity and to explore the Peak District. Nearby Bakewell, Chatsworth and Matlock Bath are easily accessible by car. There are lovely country walks from the cottage itself and several wonderful pubs within a five minute walk. Matlock has a large variety of shops, supermarkets, a launderette, cafes, restaurants, pubs, indoor swimming pool, weekly market and parks. Matlock Bath is a well-known resort on the river with fish and chips, cable cars and numerous entertainment.

Step along the stepping stone path which leads into the spacious kitchen/diner. There is an electric range style oven and hob, smeg fridge, washing machine and dishwasher which provides you with everything you need for a home away from home stay. There is also a farmhouse kitchen table which is the perfect spot for a lazy breakfast. The large lounge boasts a wood burner, comfortable sofas, TV/DVD, and big glass windows to overlook the fields opposite, ideal for relaxing with a cuppa after a hard day exploring. Leading upstairs to the spacious master bedroom with original beams for character and charm and a super-king-size bed (which can be made into twin on request). The bedroom window overlooks a cattle shed and calves can be seen at certain times of the year, if you are lucky. There is a further twin bedroom (which can be made into king-size upon request). Both bedrooms feature charming stone window seats which bring the outside in. The stylish bathroom has a shower over bath and WC.

A lovely place to stay. The cottage was stunning and had everything we needed. So much to do we unfortunately didn't get chance to view the farm and join in milking. There was cake on arrival and some provisions. Lovely walks on the doorstep. Would highly recommend the local falls walk and the gate inn. We will definitely stay again.
