Warm and welcoming converted barn with original features, enjoying a rural hillside location. Situated on the north west edge of Peak District, within a mile of the main amenities at Whaley Bridge.
Immerse yourself in the rural lifestyle with a stay in this homely, converted barn on the north-western edge of the Peak District National Park. As part of a working farm, there are sheep, cattle and horses aplenty; there’s even stabling available for visiting horses. Its hillside location allows all eight of you to soak up the picturesque views and offers a wealth of walks from your doorstep. With the delightful town of Whaley Bridge, known as the ‘Gateway to the Goyt Valley’, only 1.6 miles away, there are a range of independent shops/eateries nearby.
Honouring its heritage, this sympathetically restored barn has plenty of original features and traditional furniture that adds character and charm throughout. It is the ideal property to return to at the end of an action-packed day. As you enter the hall, you can tickle the ivories before heading through to the spacious farmhouse kitchen/diner to cook up some treats. The ground floor is also home to two bedrooms and a family bathroom. You’ll find the two further bedrooms on the first floor alongside the comfortable lounge with its countryside views, and a shower room. In the evening, enjoy a drink on the shared patio whilst making plans for the following day.
With an abundance of walking, cycling, canoeing, climbing and caving opportunities, the Peak District is made for adventures. Explore the steep dales and limestone plateaus at Castleton (9.5 miles) in the White Peak or for the more daring amongst you, head underground into the area’s showcaves. Remember that all adventurers need ‘rest days’, so wander the cobbled streets of the historic ‘Capital of the Peak’, Chapel-en-le-Frith (3 miles), or venture to Georgian thermal spa town Buxton (7.5 miles) for a glass of spring water.
