Guests staying at this barn will be spoilt for choice with options to keep them entertained during their stay. A delightful location with nearby pretty villages and expansive walks across the valleys and dales.

Situated in the south of the Peak District National Park at the gateway of the weathered landscape of the White Peak, the barn provides a great base for exploring the best that this incredible countryside has to offer. The nearby pretty villages of Tissington and Ashbourne are a delightful way to pass the day, strolling around cobble streets and quaint shops. Visit Dovedale and its famous stepping stones, or simply head out to walk the valleys and dales that make up this spectacular location.

The property has been designed with sociable living at its core, with an open-plan ground floor making it a great spot for entertaining. The kitchen, which has been decorated in a fresh farmhouse style retaining its beamed ceiling, is fully equipped with all the essentials for your stay. The adjoining dining area seats up to 8 people while the sitting room beyond, complete with a flame effect electric stove, offers a cosy space in which to unwind, plan your day ahead or enjoy a game with the family.

Upstairs the two bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with two singles, continue to reflect the building’s history through exposed beams, wooden floorboards and slanted ceilings. Both rooms have access to a contemporary en-suite, one with a bath and the other with a power shower. The property opens out onto a pretty walled terrace, ideal for al fresco breakfasts and dinners. Steps lead down to a large lawn and garden, bordered by potted plants, flowering beds and a timber fence, making this the perfect space for dogs, children or even a game of croquet.

This cottage is one of two in this location. Booked together, the cottages can sleep up to eight people making them great for groups - Trail View Cottage.
