“Excellent”
Reviewed July 26, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We went up to stay in the Camping Barn for a stop over night whilst having a weekend away for my birthday. The barn obviously isn't luxurious accommodation but was perfect for our group of 12 who wanted communal budget accommodation! We candle lit the barn and enjoyed a night with the BBQ taking in the views of the peakdistrict! It was a great experience, would highly recommend!

“It's a barn, simple.”
Reviewed July 18, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We booked Alstonefield camping barn for a get together with friends and it is exactly as you expect. An empty barn with water. No electricity, minimal phone signal, no other people around - lovely. We ate in a local pub then played cards in front of the wood burner all night. It's basically camping but without the tent. We'd book again.

Thank you so much for the 5 star review Natalie - much appreciated
Before this Winter we hope to insulate the roof space to make upstairs retain the heat better. We are planning to do this without spoiling the character of the barn and maintain the visibility of the lovely old internal beams.
Yes, the old bridal path leading to the barn can be a challenge for low cars, pleased you managed it. We upgrade the lane when we can but as it is a bridal path we are not allowed to tarmac it or alter its appearance too much. Anyone concerned about the lane is most welcome to park at the farmhouse where there is ample room and extra cars can be parked here if necessary, however we do encourage people to car share when possible.
Hope you will return
thank you

“Everything you expect”
Reviewed July 5, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I booked this camping barn for a family gathering with a mixture of young children and adults, the location of the barn was perfect for walks and exploring the local area, it was exactly as the pictures described, the lack of electricity and wifi meant we had a complete break from life which was enjoyed by all, this is certainly a lot easier than camping with tents and I would recommend it to others. Hubby had a great time lighting the log burner which kicked out plenty of heat!

“Friendly, kind, exciting get away”
Reviewed May 21, 2015 for a stay in August 2014

I stopped there with my mum and her group it was better than we exspected.

We had an excellent time with no bother. And great company from the cows.

I don't think there's a kinder owner than that one, she friendly and welcomes you as if you was family, she's helpful too.

The wood burning stove was brilliant and wood was at reasonable price too.

I would recommend to everyone.
