“Beautiful cottage, perfect for relaxing holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We spent a wonderful week here. Good base for lots of nice walks. So much to do in local area. All needs to be driven to, not much in walking distance. Wifi access only in bedroom but this was fine by us.

“There is lovely warmth to this cottage - a wonderful place to stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This cottage is situated in idyllic surroundings with a birds eye view of life in the country. The cottage is excellently equipped, the kitchen having all the bits and bobs which one has accumulated over time and takes for granted at home but don't necessarily come across in holiday lets. It is also spotlessly clean and cosy.

The love and care which has, over time, been lavished on the property and gardens, are very apparent.

A lovely place to stay.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This accommodation was gorgeous and sweet. Loved the barn doors and beams, very in keeping with a traditional country cottage with outstanding views. We were able to buy the fresh eggs from cherry's hens and even bought some to take home.

“Beautifull & cosy little barn, perfect for a secluded getaway!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Me, my boyfriend and our (big) German Shepherd rented the cottage from the end of December & saw in the new year, it was the perfect getaway for the 2 of us to enjoy some much needed peace and quiet after Christmas. The Barn was beautifully presented, and had everything we needed. The Alpha range cooker was great fun to use (I know; how sad!) I want one!
The location is great too, there is a pub near by (but we didn't go ourselves) but is within walking distance (albeit on the roads so care must be taken!) Matlock is only a few miles away with all the amenities you'd possibly need.
A great base for many walks in the peak district, and lots of walking books at the Barn too which we used on one of our walks.
Due to the weather we couldn't go out walking on one of the days so we stayed and made use of the comfy sofas and watched TV & DVD's. It really felt like home for a few days.
I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this little barn and will definitely be going back!

Stayed for a weekend for our wedding anniversary- what a lovely cottage - well equipped, and so comfortable- a real home from home!
Spent a pleasant few hours walking at Stanton Moor finished off with a pint in the village.
A wonderful restful weekend in beautiful surroundings - would love to see the garden in full bloom so need to have a return visit- we will be back!

“A truly outstanding, beautifully fitted property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013 for a stay in September 2013
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed in September and were welcomed by Cherry, the owner. The garden and views were truly stunning with lots of unusual wild birds and deer on both the owner's land and the hillside opposite. Bumble Bee is fitted out to a very high standard with great attention to detail and everything is to hand for the comfort of guests. We visited both Chatsworth and Haddon which are close by, and walked on Stanton Moor amongst the heather. Cherry's free range eggs from her chickens were the best we had tasted and we will be back very soon.
