Lower Barn was the perfect base for our Peak District holiday. The accommodation was of a very high standard and it felt like a 'home from home' so we settled in quickly and enjoyed 'chilling out' in our beautiful surroundings. Very child friendly, (jigsaws and books available), plenty of space for the children to play and a lovely garden, even witRead moreh a few garden games supplied. Facilities very good, kitchen well supplied for s/catering. Beds v comfortable too. Thanks for a brilliant holiday! Hide

Wonderful cottage in a beautiful setting; equipped with everything you could need and more! Hosts were kind and lovely and couldnt do enough. Only gripe for me was the over soft bed but I think these are always a personal thing. Nice to have choice of hollow fibred pillows as allergic to feathers! Thanks so much, had a fab time!

What an honour to be the first ones to stay at this stunning property! The owners had literally thought of everything to make our stay so special. So many luxury goodies - from the welcome pack, bounty of coffee pods for the machine to the dressing gowns and slippers.

Literally the worse thing about our stay is that we couldn't stay longer! Hide
