This was our first visit to the Peak District and certainly not the last. We had made reservations for 6 nights at the Old Hay Barn. Because we had 6 nights we decided to take Room 1 (The one with the sitting room). This turned out to be a big mistake. Because I am 2 meters tall I didn’t fit in the bed. Luckily room 2 came available the next day. Iain and Diana said we could use this one instead. Great service!! The bed is the same size but it doesn’t have a footboard so I could hang my feet outside. Slept like a baby that night. The room is also bigger than room1 but is doesn’t have a sitting room. But because there were no other guests we still could use it (it is a separate room) if we wanted. Iain has great knowledge of the Peak District and helped us with some beautiful walks and places to eat. The cooked breakfasts were great. We even had pancakes one day. Nothing is too much for Iain and Diana.
There is one thing we didn’t like, but this is personal, other reviewers haven’t mentioned it. The rooms are en-suite but the bathroom are separate from the bedrooms. There is a curtain as a separation between the bed- and bathroom and the rest of the house.
Unfortunately we had to break off the stay after 4 nights due to a back injury. Iain and Diana thank you for a welcome stay!
