Flick on the TV/DVD to watch your favourite soap, a film or just relax with a good book. Have a natter with everyone whilst you cook in the well-equipped kitchen with range style electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and all the other essential kitchen items. Gather round the extendable dining table for up to eight guests for a wonderful evening meal, perfect for accommodating friends and family. The utility room provides a washing machine and plenty of space to house those muddy boots and coats after a long days walk.

Plenty of space and very comfortable. Great location with quick access to most of the Peak Districts attractions. Good local walks. From the outside the Old Diary is not that attractive with an apparent lack of windows, but inside theres plenty of light and the layout is good. It would be nice to read something about the history of the building - IRead more doubt it was always the dairy. Hide
