  • Beautiful detached barn with a bubbling hot tub and outstanding views over surrounding farmland
  • Situated on the owners’ farm, with livestock grazing the fields for a true escape to the country
  • Relax with good company around the roaring wood burner during those chillier months
Property code: 83435

This beautiful detached stone barn has been lovingly converted with style and comfort in mind. Perfect for couples, small families and friends wanting a rural retreat in a sleepy Peak District village.

Your experience of the great outdoors will be second to none when you opt to stay in this charming, detached barn within the magnificent Peak District National Park. Set within rural splendour yet within 3 miles of top attractions such as Gulliver’s Kingdom, Cromford Mills and the Heights of Abraham, you’ll be handily located for exploring near and far. To top off a brilliant day of adventures, you’ll have sole use of a hot tub for drinks with a view.

You’ll be able to relax and unwind in comfort from the moment you step inside, leaving your muddy coats and shoes by the door. There’s a crackling wood burner that provides a cosy atmosphere for family films and games, and mealtimes are a delight in the kitchen with its array of equipment. The two bedrooms are upstairs and sleep four guests in total, one of which has an en-suite shower room for an additional treat. On balmy evenings, the garden has dining furniture for al fresco suppers before a dip in the hot tub, and of a morning the patio is a pleasant place to sit with your morning coffee.

Not only will you have a choice of trails to choose from across miles of unspoilt countryside, but you’ll also be able to try something new such as kayaking, paddleboarding and sailing at Carsington Water 7.5 miles away. Quintessential market towns and villages provide an interesting change of pace with shops, eateries and fascinating heritage, and if you venture to Ashbourne (12.5 miles) you’ll be rewarded with impressive Dovedale scenery whilst you enjoy tea and cake. Known as the gateway to Dovedale, Ashbourne is also the start of the popular Tissington Trail, a must for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.

We all LOVED Briars Inn. We've already booked to go back. The barn is spacious yet cosy and spotlessly clean. It's full of stuff you need (giant mugs, knives that cut, comfy beds).
