We had such a wonderful stay in the Byre for 3 days over Xmas. We were greeted by the smell of mulled wine and mince pies! Everything we needed and more was provided which made cooking Xmas dinner easy. It was very spacious, plenty of room for 6 people and a little one. It had a really cosy, welcoming feel and was clean and well presented. The viewRead mores were lovely and the games room was a real bonus too, fab! I would highly recommend this property for a family get together. Perfect. Hide

We have had a lovely time at The Byre. Its a very comfortable cottage with everything you could possibly need. The location was beautiful and within driving distance of some beautiful towns nearby. The added bonus was the games room and tennis/ football court behind the property. Our only recommendation would be a kitchen makeover as a little tiredRead more. Otherwise fabulous , however this would not put us off going again and recommending it to others. Owners next door were extremely helpful. Hide

Lovely, peaceful location. Quiet and comfortable. Good quality furnishings and more than enough cups, plates, cutlery & utensils. Nice change to have somewhere with everything we needed. A very pleasant stay. One of the comfiest beds we've ever slept in too. Wifi bad - but that was mentioned in the info beforehand.

The cottage is in a beautiful quiet location but is near enough to Matlock to benefit from its amenities. The children enjoyed the games room and we were able to use the footpaths to explore from the cottage.

A fantastic property in a lovely setting, although a little remote if you want to be nearer to the town centre. Excellent facilities - we had a great and comfortable stay and would definitely return to The Byre. Friendly and helpful owners who live next door!
