A converted barn that enjoys stunning rural views and a cosy yet bright and airy interior. Walking distance from the local pub and access to a trail into the parklands of Chatsworth House.

This barn conversion is ideally located to explore the Derbyshire Dales area of the Peak District National Park. With Baslow and Curbar Edges on its doorstep, you will be hard pressed to find better local views than from these gritstone walks. Or, for those adventurous types, rock climbing makes a thrilling alternative to a gentle stroll, while also taking in those stunning panoramas. The village pub, Bridge Inn, serves tasty local food to follow those long and exhausting days out.

Originally the village cobbler’s shop, the property is accessed via the patio area into the kitchen. This room is compact but includes everything you should need for your stay and has been decorated in a country farmhouse style with terracotta floor tiling, cream painted cabinets, wooden worktops and exposed beams above. Once you’ve finished preparing your meal, step down into the cosy sitting and dining room. With a beamed ceiling, exposed stone wall and pretty window, this is a relaxing space to unwind and enjoy your evening meal. Upstairs, the bedroom is very inviting, with its apex roof, skylight, exposed beam and bright, modern en suite bathroom.

If the weather permits, step outside into the patio area to enjoy a glass of wine in the sun or even a BBQ. If you are booking with friends, why not rent the adjoining Lower Barn to accommodate four guests in total.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Nice location within small village but on the edge of walks to Chatsworth and up onto Curbar edge, pub, cafe and Spar shop (5 min drive) so ideal with our dog. Been fairly central within the Peaks easy to drive out to all the popular areas. Very quiet location, off road parking and comfortable enough for a weeks stay.

Great central location for exploring the surrounding area. Visiting Curbar Edge is a must. Comfortable and clean accommodation. More suited to shorter individuals! Slight noise through adjoining door to neighbouring kitchen.

Lovely location. Many walks straight from the cottage. WiFi actually works (Peak District not good reception generally) kitchen equipment adequate.

The cottage is very comfortable and clean, it was very well equipped and the owners who live on site were very helpful.

Reviewed by Martin, 29th December 2017

There was a lovely welcome atmosphere when we arrived, with lights and Christmas decorations. The owners were around but did not intrude into our space at all, which was just the right balance. This is a great walking base and some excellent pubs nearby. Easy to keep the dog here.

Reviewed by Robert, 6th October 2017

Unfortunately the descriptive element on the web page tends to imply that there are two barns and fails to make it clear that the converted barn comprises both Lower Barn and Upper Barn. The two entry kitchens being separated by a very thin door. Hence adjacent noise travels through. Exceptionally clean and fully fitted with all the necessary equipRead morement required. Hide
