A converted barn that enjoys stunning rural views and a cosy yet bright and airy interior. Walking distance from the local pub and access to a trail into the parklands of Chatsworth House.

This barn conversion is ideally located to explore the Derbyshire Dales area of the Peak District National Park. With Baslow and Curbar Edges on its doorstep, you will be hard pressed to find better local views than from these gritstone walks. Or, for those adventurous types, rock climbing makes a thrilling alternative to a gentle stroll, while also taking in those stunning panoramas. The village pub, Bridge Inn, serves tasty local food to follow those long and exhausting days out.

Originally the village cobbler’s shop, the property is accessed via the patio area into the kitchen. This room is compact but includes everything you should need for your stay and has been decorated in a country farmhouse style with terracotta floor tiling, cream painted cabinets, wooden worktops and exposed beams above. Once you’ve finished preparing your meal, step down into the cosy sitting and dining room. With a beamed ceiling, exposed stone wall and pretty window, this is a relaxing space to unwind and enjoy your evening meal. Upstairs, the bedroom is very inviting, with its apex roof, skylight, exposed beam and bright, modern en suite bathroom.

If the weather permits, step outside into the patio area to enjoy a glass of wine in the sun or even a BBQ. If you are booking with friends, why not rent the adjoining Lower Barn to accommodate four guests in total.


Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Upper barn curbar is in the perfect location for walking, climbing and site seeing. Right on the doorstep of Chatsworth and Bakewell. Literally a few minutes walk to curbar and baslow edge and not that far from froggat edge and birchen edge, and stoney Middleton for the climbers. Great for fell runners. Not much need to drive too far if you didn't Read morewant too. The Bridge Inn at the bottom of Curbar Lane do delicious tappas dishes and not too bad on price or the Eyre Arms for pub grub. Hide

We had a lovely time at Upper Barn, it had all of the necessities we could ask for and we were happy to enjoy a cuppa once we'd arrived and glad of the heating being on. The cottage is a lovely little place to spend a few days, plenty of space for a large dog (we had a greyhound with us) as well as us.

Nice location within small village but on the edge of walks to Chatsworth and up onto Curbar edge, pub, cafe and Spar shop (5 min drive) so ideal with our dog. Been fairly central within the Peaks easy to drive out to all the popular areas. Very quiet location, off road parking and comfortable enough for a weeks stay.

Great central location for exploring the surrounding area. Visiting Curbar Edge is a must. Comfortable and clean accommodation. More suited to shorter individuals! Slight noise through adjoining door to neighbouring kitchen.
