Bakewell is also a short drive away with lots of interesting shops and why not try a famous Bakewell pudding? For those looking for an array of culinary options or some retail therapy, then you are just 5 miles north of the cathedral city of Derby.

Guests enter this characterful stylish barn and arrive in the lobby area which has the convenience of a shower room on entry; after a busy day out exploring, kick off those walking boots and revitalise your senses before heading into the rest of the property. The dining area is next along as you walk through - here is the perfect spot to have a lunch or dinner with loved ones before you head through to the lounge area. This space has a comfortable sofa and an armchair so you can gather around and watch or stream your favourite show on the large Smart TV. When it comes to preparing meals, the designated chef among you has everything you need to prepare the perfect meal with the electric oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is a separate utility room that has a washing machine and tumble dryer for you to use. There is also a handy downstairs shower room with WC.
