Wow! This is by far the best cottage I have ever stayed in. The standard was so high with beautiful furniture, fully equipped kitchen and soft furnishings. The views were outstanding and with the big floor to ceiling windows it just made it perfect. Kim made us feel very welcome on our arrival with a homemade cake, fresh flowers, orange juice and aRead more pint of milk which was fresh from their cows that morning. I will certainly be recommending to my friends. Thank you for an amazing stay. Hide

Brilliant place to stay, Kim most welcoming . Plenty of space, comfy beds and pillows and very clean. We devoured the home baked Victoria sponge, fresh orange juice and fresh milk from the farm. The week flew by, boys (14yrs) loved it, wouldnt hesitate to book this barn conversion again.

If you want peace and quiet then come here. We were four adults who had an amazing time. Plenty of space inside and out. Super king size beds in both bedrooms which is a rarity. Huge range cooker in the well equipped kitchen. Our stay felt like a home from home. Although very peaceful, you are still very close to Matlock and all it offers. We wouldRead more look to buy this property if it ever came on the market. There isnt much you could improve here. We would stay again in a heartbeat. Hide

This barn was an absolutely stunning find with amazing views. The pictures online really dont do the view justice. We received a warm welcome from the owner (Homemade cake and fresh milk from the farm!) and enjoyed a great week in the peaks in easy reach of Matlock, Matlock Bath, Bakewell, Chatsworth, The Monsal Trail and Blackrocks/Cromford.
