Steal away for a romantic retreat in the Heart of England, exploring the beautiful Peak District and returning home to luxury surroundings at the end of each day. Happily sleeping two in cosy surroundings, this property provides an ideal bolthole for those looking to get away. Whether you’re set to explore the gritstone edges, hike or bike some of the Peak District’s most scenic routes or perhaps just enjoy day trips to English heritage spots, this property puts all attractions within close reach. You’ll also find a handful of local pubs 2 miles away in Barlow, perfect for those who don’t fancy cooking on their holiday.

Thoughtfully updated and lovingly restored, this Grade II-listed property has been modernised with a sleek contemporary style and yet retains plenty of stunning original features. Sit underneath the vaulted ceilings and original oak beams when relaxing in the living room or catching forty winks in the galleried king-size bedroom. The ground floor is open plan with a wood burner in the lounge area, creating a cosy atmosphere for the perfect winter night in. Luxury touches including a Nespresso machine, fluffy white robes and a music system elevate your stay, along with the welcome pack of goodies (including home-baked cake) left out for your arrival.

Just 2 miles from the village of Barlow and 1 mile to the edge of the Peak District National Park, the location of this property couldn’t be more enviable. The nearest of the famous edges, Curbar Edge, is just 4 miles away and a great spot for joining the challenging Nine Edge Hike. A less challenging day out can be found on the banks of the River Derwent (5 miles), perfect for fishing or waterside walks. You’ll also find the beautiful stately homes of Haddon Hall (10.5 miles) and Chatsworth House (5.5 miles) close by and well worth a visit.

I particularly liked the dogs from the property next door popping round to check things out! We hope to return as it is a very comfortable cottage with excellent facilities. The views are wonderful and Barlow has great places to eat and is well placed within the Peak District for visiting the local area.

A true gem of a barn! We loved our stay and there was everything we needed to make this feel like home from home. The welcome pack was a lovely treat, the bed was comfortable and the stove gave the barn a wonderful cosy feel. One if the best properties we have stayed in. There are a couple of very good local pubs in the village a few minutes drive Read moredown the road. These would be walkable in about 20-30 minutes during light evenings. Highly recommend this property. Hide
