    Old Beams is located on the southern edge of the Peak District, offering a perfect base for those wishing to avoid the busier central Peak District, with easy access from both the M1 and the M6. Perfect for larger groups, it boasts all modern conveniences within a period property, offering separate relaxation spaces for adults and kids, or communal spaces large enough to accommodate both. For entertainment, there is a large flat screen tv in the lounge with full Sky+ HD, there are additional tvs in the kitchen, snug and every bedroom with Freesat digital channels. We also have a selection of board games, including Trivia Pursuits, Scene It, Cranium, jigsaw puzzles...
