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.

The Old Carthouse was exemplary and very splendid. Beautifully conserved building, excellently appointed, amidst the wonderful Matlock and Derwent Valley landscape. The private courtyard, dining and BBQ space .. and the hot-tub .. were also a special luxury. The welcome from the owners was warm and friendly. A great holiday. Thank you.

This was our first holiday with our pup! Being a bouncy golden retriever who will walk and walk, the location was fab! Enough room for her to explore in the secure courtyard and chill in front of the log burner after exploring the local woods, waterfall and streams all day! The property is beautiful & the views are fab! Waking up to the calves runnRead moreing around in the field opposite was lovely! The property is very dog friendly! & has all the home essentials and more! Would definitely recommend! Hide

This is an amazing holiday destination. The setting, and scenery are absolutely stunning - and this is matched by the property itself. So comfortable, and well specified, we settled in straight away, and had the most relaxing few days. In addition to the interiors, the garden has been beautifully designed to be an inviting and relaxing environment.Read more Our dogs loved it too. We have booked to stay again. Hide
