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.

Great location, very close to Curbar Edge. Theres a pub nearby which serves really nice food. Plenty of parking space. Theres a roof window in the bedroom so it can be noisy on a rainy day or you could be woke up by the birds outside!
