Spectacular view across the countryside from the patio area. Very peaceful location. We expected to hear the activities of the working farm but heard nothing during our stay. High quality finish to a well thought out barn conversion.

Absolutely wonderful, spacious and comfortable barn conversion, recently completed to a very high standard (including all of the furnishings, crockery etc.). Stunning and peaceful setting with beautiful views and a great location for exploring the Peak District and Derbyshire. Lovely walks and cycle rides on the doorstep - and some good pubs too!
