This retreat is perfect for couples, families and friends wanting a hidden escape within the Derbyshire Dales. Each room has been perfectly styled with comfort in mind for a memorable staycation.

Discover this converted barn with uninterrupted views of the Derbyshire Dales and hillsides, set on a working farm in a peaceful location. It’s ideally situated to explore the abundance of natural beauty found in the Peak District National Park and is only 2 miles from Matlock town with its supermarkets, pubs, restaurants, and vibrant vintage shops across the bridge. The stunning Chatsworth Estate is only a 6-mile drive over the picturesque moors, with its splendid house and gardens and sprawling estate teeming with sheep and deer along the riverside, not forgetting an award-winning farm shop. There is a public footpath direct from the farm, which takes you to a beautiful woodland walk with natural dams and a waterfall, ideal for children and pets to let off some steam without getting the car out.

Step through into the kitchen/diner which is a fantastic space to rustle up a delicious meal for loved ones. Come together around the kitchen island or the farmhouse dining table. The kitchen offers a range cooker with a gas hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and microwave. There is a handy utility space with a washing machine and tumble dryer and downstairs WC. Get cosy in the lounge and light the wood burner, curl up with a good book or watch a film on the Smart TV. Open the patio doors and let the fresh air flood in during the warmer months. Head upstairs to the master bedroom which offers a king-size bed, vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and Smart TV. There is a picture window offering beautiful views over the valley. The second bedroom is a king-size zip-and-link (which can be made into a twin upon request), and a further single bedroom suitable for children with outstanding views over the surrounding countryside. The bathroom is a welcoming space to relax after a day hiking the hills and offers a beautiful bath with central taps and handheld shower, separate enclosed shower, and WC.

Outside, there is a spacious enclosed courtyard garden with a wood-fired hot tub providing a special place to switch off and relax. The comfortable garden seating is perfect for those sunny days whilst you enjoy long, lazy lunches dining alfresco. There is off-road parking for two cars.
