The Old Hay Barn is run by a very friendly couple who made us feel very welcome. We had our breakfast in a private conservatory with beautiful views and the food was amazing quality! The rooms were very comfortable, with our own lounge, bedroom and bathroom. There were plenty of places to walk from the B+B and nearby pubs to... More

We booked in at the Old Hay Barn very last minute after deciding to grab a couple of nights away and couldn't have picked a better B&B. A truly beautiful house with stunning surroundings and views, the garden is a real gem, looking over the river Wye, with all the autumnal reds and oranges of the trees on either side... More

We wanted a b&b in the centre of the Peak District to spend some time with our grown up daughters and we found this lovely place. Excellent non-intrusive hospitality from Diana & Iain, a beautiful barn conversion in a great location, with walks and pubs on the door step. Highly recommend.

We stayed at the Old Hay Barn for 2 nights as we were attending a wedding at Cressbrook Hall. Iain & Diana really made us feel welcome and served a fantastic breakfast. A gorgeous b&b within a beautiful setting - Truly a home from home!

Nice accommodation, lovely breakfast in a great setting. Iain and Diana made us most welcome after our traumas with Europcar at Heathrow Airport. Their suggestion re places to visit were very helpful. The Monsal Head Pub at the top of the hill had good food.

Beautiful barn conversion in a lovely setting, rooms were clean and comfortable (especially the beds). Iain and Diana were friendly helpful hosts and nothing was too much trouble. They made our stay in the Peak District a pleasant experience and if we are in the area again we would certainly stay there again. Would thoroughly recommend this B&B.

Great location and the accommodation is first class. We had both the rooms for our end of July stay and they were more than adequate. They were spacious and very well presented. Breakfast was excellent. Our hosts Iain and Diana were very helpful with local information and places to visit. There are many walks from your doorstep and the surrounding... More

We were two couples who were cycling in the area and stayed for two nights. The location is one of the best I have ever seen for a B&B with a garden that overlooks the river Wye. It is also situated very close to the Monsal trail making it ideal for cycling or walking directly from the B&B. The rooms... More

The Old Hay Barn is a beautiful barn conversion set in a truly stunning location. The photos on their website really don't do it justice! It is an excellent base from which to explore the Peak District, being a short drive from Bakewell, Chatsworth, and within walking distance of the Monsal Trail. Hosts Iain and Diana are extremely friendly and... More
