  • Close to the beauty of Butterton Moor, this remote cottage is located off the beaten track with spectacular views
  • A short drive from the pretty market towns of Ashbourne and Bakewell and the historical spa town of Buxton and its opera house are nearby
  • Enjoy walking and cycling trails through the Peak District National Park, and come home to this cosy converted barn
Property code: 40822

A delightful rural property nestled at the end of a lane surrounding Butterton Moor, offering spectacular vistas of the surrounding landscape, this is perfect for those wanting to get away from it all.

Stay in this rustic bolthole near Leek, an ideal spot for outdoor adventures and appreciating the views, before returning to the barn’s charming original features and home comforts that are available in abundance. Sleeping four guests and two dogs, you’ll be handily positioned for scenic walks and picnic lunches. The wider Peak District National Park promises activities such as kayaking, cycling and even caving, and there are pretty market towns to explore such as Leek, Ashbourne and Bakewell, all within 16.5 miles.

Wooden floors, timber beams and exposed stone create a homely vibe for relaxing, and the wood burner in the lounge is brilliantly cosy on chilly nights, powering the underfloor heating too for added warmth. Wake up to morning sunlight streaming in through the skylight as you navigate the mezzanine landing and staircase, a surprisingly contemporary feature that also leads to two impressive bedrooms and a lavish bathroom. The kitchen/diner has everything you need to rustle up tasty meals; think hearty suppers washed down with local ale and breakfast plates brimming with fresh eggs and bacon to kick-start your day. There’s bike storage outside and a BBQ for lazy afternoon treats, plus ample parking.

If you love the great outdoors, then you have come to the right place. Whatever your level of ability, the local area has gentle strolls, challenging hill climbs and exciting trails to tempt even the most hardened of adventurers. Butterton, 1 mile away, offers easy access to the Manifold Way, an exhilarating path that once served as a railway line and is now a celebrated walking route. For the youngsters, you can satisfy their need for speed with rides galore at Alton Towers (10.5 miles) or take it easy with a day trip to Peak Wildlife Park (5 miles) to greet the resident animals.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Really lovely barn, perfect if you want a remote location. There are some nice walks right from the door. Host is very accommodating. No heating in the property other than a fire downstairs. Bed not very comfortable and lacking in some soft touches to make it homely and cosy.

Beautiful location, the property is very spacious and with a luxury comfortable feel and amazing views.The property has a private water supply which doesnt taste the same as mains water, so we chose to drink bottled water. The track down to the property is very uneven and bumpy, not suitable for vehicles low to the ground. Location is pretty remoteRead more but we were lucky to have sunshine so we stayed at the property and enjoyed the surrounding countryside. Definitely recommend Hillview Barn! Hide

Once again we had a fantastic holiday at Hill View Barn. The space and light in the building is second to none, it is perfectly equipped and welcoming, and the local walks and areas of interest within a very few miles are wide-ranging. We hope to be back really soon!

Lovely secluded setting with fantastic views and privacy. Located just on the edge of the Peak District with fantastic walks close to the cottage. Plenty of room in the cottage and a lovely log burner to keep you warm during the winter weather. Fantastic dog friendly pubs close by with amazing home cooked food ( The Jervis Arms).
