Great couples retreat, perfect for getting away from it all. Fantastic location with lots of great walks straight out of the door - I'd recommend the Pilsbury castle walk and the Biggin Dale/Wolfescote Dale walk. The wood burning stove used half a basket of logs a night to keep the barn very cosy in February and the underfloor heating in the kitchen was lovely. Loved the mezzanine bedroom with very comfy bed. Bathroom was small but functional and had been cleaned, towels provided. The barn could do with a few more board games and a bit more cleaning. Communication could have been better. The decoration is quirky - not traditional for a rural Derbyshire barn conversion. Stayed for 5 days and didn't meet the owners until we handed back the keys but nice welcoming treats had been left out for our arrival.
The walks and wood burning stove were the highlights.
It was chilly when we arrived but soon warmed up once we got the log burner going. It is a good tip to take your own logs if you have them but if not the owners offer a generous basket full for £5. I was concerned when I read an earlier entry about cleanliness but we found it to be perfectly clean. The shower room is small but best use is made of the space and there is plenty of hot water. Also the underfloor heating in the kitchen is lovely. The cottage is well designed and great for a couples getaway.
Lots to see & do nearby, plenty of info in the cottage.
Wonderful place to stay - wood burner perfect for cuddling up in front of after a busy day walking. Wplus highly recommend for a perfect weekend away from it all!
We stayed a here for a couple nights and it was lovely converted barn to stay in. Its a shame we had to return to reality. The shower played up a bit but the comfy bed made up for it. It was really comfy. Definitely we would return
An ideal place for a couple to stay . Clean , comfortable , welcoming, we enjoyed our short stay very much. A feeling of away from it all , yet within reasonable distance of pubs etc . Phone and wifi signal erratic but as to be expected . Would definitely return.
