This quaint Grade II-listed barn conversion is perfect for couples, friends, families and four-pawed pups wanting an escape from the daily hustle and bustle with miles of scenic footpaths to explore.
Positioned amongst a row of similar properties, this stylish former barn sleeps four and is ideal for couples and small families. The surroundings offer adventures in droves, whether you are a seasoned walker keen to navigate the majestic Dovedale landscape, or a gentle ambler with a small child perched on your shoulders hoping to catch a glimpse of the steam trains on your travels. You’ll have lots to entertain on-site too thanks to the shared firepit and games barn, plus the ‘messy’ area that will entice little ones with its mud kitchens, sand and water play.
Beneath the charming exterior is a welcoming abode characterised by wooden flooring underfoot, painted stone walls and glimpses of timber beams. For the youngest guests, the house has a toy kitchen for them to play with whilst you cook up a storm in the kitchen/diner, gathering everyone around the table to eat. Upstairs, the two bedrooms feature vaulted ceilings and timber beams and an en-suite shower room a piece. Completing the property is a handy day bed and a downstairs shower room. Outside, your private patio leads out to shared gardens and an indoor play barn.
Known as ‘Little Switzerland’ due to its marvellous scenery, the Churnet Valley is a must-visit if you’re looking to reconnect with the outdoors. Follow trails leading through wooded valleys and have a picnic with a view, or hop on board a steam train at Froghall station and watch the countryside whizz by. Change pace with a fun day out for all the family at Alton Towers, 7 miles away, or meander around beautiful Stoke-on-Trent and learn about its heritage, 11 miles away.
