This is our second time at the barn, which we use as a base for walking. It is very comfortable and well equipped, and tastefully decorated. The owners, who live adjacent to the barn, are friendly and helpful, and provide a thoughtful welcome pack, including home made cake. Located close to Ilam, there are nice walks that can be done from the house, as well as plenty more a short drive away.
From the owners through the location to the actual barn itself, it would be hard to suggest any improvements on this snug, warm, but spacious luxury barn where 8 people can have their own space, but mix well in the open plan living/dining room/kitchen upstairs. From the moment we turned into the driveway & saw the beautiful christmas tree lights twinkling in the full length picture window we felt welcomed & at home in the Winnow Barn. The kitchen is well equipped & the bedrooms spacious but snug too. The location, aprox one mile from Ilam, & situated in between the Dove & Manifold Valleys was excellent for walks while the snow sprinkled views were also great to view from inside the accommodation via any one of a number of windows. Also, this was one of the cleanest places we have stayed & we are pretty fussy on that score.All in all, first class!
Near Ashbourne in the Peak District. Even in December there were lots of things to do nearby - walks, pretty towns, stately homes, a cycle trail...The barn is lovely - very spacious and each room has an en-suite bathroom.We loved the wood burner and loved Andrea's home-made lemon drizzle cake even more! We all want to stay again.
Perfect setting for our annual get-together. Spacious, spotless, lovely décor - and so peaceful. Very cosy with great woodburner. Excellent lemon cake on arrival and really felt the welcome was genuine.
We booked Winnow Barn for a family celebration and it proved to be everything we could have wished for.
In a perfect location within the Peak District with easy access to beautiful walking country, the property is part of a working farm. The owners are delightful - very friendly and helpful and Winnow Barn itself is a delightful conversion which boasts four good sized bedrooms all with en suite and, on the first floor, a stunning open plan living area.
The building has been finished to a very high standard and is extremely comfortable and well equipped with everything you could need.
As our two year old grandson accompanied us on this trip, Andrea ensured that we were aware of the tiny stream which runs outside the door to the property and a couple of other points relating to the working nature of the farm, before we booked - information which was useful and reassuring.
On arrival Andrea met us, showed us round and left us with the most delicious lemon drizzle cake and food with which to feed the goats and chickens - our grandson was delighted to meet the goats!
All in all, we had a really lovely time, would certainly recommend Winnow Barn to others and hope that we may return one day.
Situated in a pleasant and peaceful part of the peak district and close to Dovedale and the Manifold valley with easy access to plenty of walks. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The barn is done out to a high standard and is very well equipped with everything needed for a good stay.
Really lovely property with stunning views in an amazing location. Works really well having 4 en suite bedrooms. Loved the open plan layout and having the open plan living area on the first floor.
Andrea and John were charming ... and took the trouble to show us the new born lambs and other animals.
