A spacious first floor barn conversion with a charming living space and lots of original features. Surrounded by walking trails, this property enjoys a rural location, with easy access to Sheffield.

This barn conversation which is attached to the owners house is ideally located in the High Peak area of the National Park. With Strines, Dale Dike and Damflask reservoirs within easy reach, guests can enjoy a row or sail on the water and take in the peace of the area. Steeped in history, the nearby Pennine Way chases along mountain tops for 268 miles – a must for any walker. Head to nearby Low Bradfield where you’ll find a thriving village pub, post office, grocery shop and delightful tea rooms.

An entrance hall welcomes you into the building, which has an interesting beamed vaulted ceiling. Continue through to the open plan living area, where a galley kitchen with belfast sink and wooden cabinets makes for a very sociable place to cook while overlooking the rest of the room. At the other side of the breakfast bar and exposed trusses, two steps down and up lead to the dining and sitting area. With a cosy open coal fire, this is the perfect space in which to relax in front of the TV or with a good book after a long day on your feet.  There is also a handy sofa bed, ideal for families, and stunning views across the valley through pretty windows.  Please be aware that the low exposed beam separating the living area is at a reduced height in places.

The bedroom is equally as charming, with a beamed vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and large window taking in the majestic views down to the reservoir, while in the bathroom next door you have the choice of a relaxing bath or electric shower.  Or, if the weather is fine, why not head outside and enjoy the peace and tranquillity on one of the garden chairs.

The cottage was comfortable, well equipped and had lovely views.

I have had a very enjoyable break at Thornseat cottage. The countryside walks are great being close to several reservoirs, one with a very interesting history. A trip to Castleton took me into a few of the caverns, where the Blue John gem stones are found. Thornseat cottage is a little bit awkward to find, but well worth the effort.

Brilliant location for a walking holiday, several walks that can easily be done from the door of varying length. The cottage itself was clean, cosy and a brilliant base from which to explore the Peak District and beyond.

We had a wonderful cosy stay with the coal fire making our stay just magical as the snow started to fall over the gorgeous views and gardens through the window. Perfect for staying in on the comfortable sofa (and bed) getting in some relaxing time in front of the TV or with a book, but also very close to some amazing walks and scenery.

Such a lovely cosy cottage with the best bed we have ever slept in!

The accommodation and location were superb. Even the 4.30 alarm clock from the escaping sheep found in the garden was great! The welcome treats were an added bonus- thank you for a lovely few days.
