“Small but cosy”

We have stayed at Dragon Hill Barn now on a number of occasions. Usually over New Year period with a couple of friends. The cottage is always clean & tidy, wifi & all you would expect. The storage heating can be a bit cool in the afternoon but is quickly backed up by the roaring log burner. The only problem is then, the bedrooms are roasting through the night. Brassington village is a lovely place to be at New Year. The 2 local pubs are warm & welcoming & have great food & ales. We love Dragon Hill Barn although it's an acquired taste.

“Great cottage - relaxing family stay”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The 2 bedroomed cottage (1 kingsize & 1 twin) is conveniently located to explore the Peak District. The cottage has lots of extra facilities (books; dvds; local walk leaflets; board games; free wifi - TIP take your laptop/tablet etc) The electric, towels and bed linen are included. There is no mobile 'phone reception but a land line 'phone is provided with free weekend & after 7pm on week day calls. There is no shop in Brassington so remember to shop when you are out & about or use the grocery vending machine in the Miners Arms car park. The Miners Arms pub is opposite and there were 2 other pubs in the local area. A great comfy cottage made extra cosy by the log burner.

Thank you for your review, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Dragonhill Barn. The owners continue to keep the modest outside seating area both pretty and useful, with garden furniture, flowers and small trees as well as a BBQ.

This is a small but excellent property. Modern inside with excellent kitchen equipment, tv's and fast broadband. Ideal for a couple or with children. Lots to do in the area.

“Absolutely Superb, perfect place to escape from it all!”
Reviewed October 19, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We have just returned from a very wet and foggy week in the area, but Dragon Hill Barn is the perfect place for sheltering from the elements! The log fire makes the already cosy cottage even more so and is super for warming up from a wet walk. The cottage has everything in it that you'd need for a stay - the towels are just wonderful! There is no phone signal in the cottage - heavenly! - but there is wifi if you need to connect. The 2 pubs in the village are lovely and welcoming. There is plenty to do in the area, even in bad weather! Would thoroughly recommend.

“A spotless and well presented barn conversion in a delightful village”

Dragon Hill Barn is a well equipped and modern property, with parking immediately outside. It is warm and comfortable - the woodburning stove is very efficient and easy to use. Two pubs are close by, with the Gate Inn particularly recommended for its warm welcome, good beers and excellent food. The property is within a 30 minute drive of the major tourist attractions of the Peak District.
Over the years we have stayed at many cottages, and invariably there is some fault somewhere. However, with Dragon Hill Barn there were none, and we will most certainly book again.
