“Ideal location to explore the beautiful Peak District”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This was a lovely converted hayloft that was a good size for 2 people. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything I needed and it had a full size fridge freezer. The small open plan living space has been utilized well and included a dining table. The bedroom looks very quaint and has an on-suite shower room, there is plenty of space to store clothing. The steps to get into the property are steep but you soon get used to them. The garden is lovely and you can also walk down to the field and see the hens. The local pub is about a mile away but it is down quite a steep hill so prepare for a good walk or take the car (like us!!). We had taken the mountain bikes and completed two local bike trails (Monsal & Tissington) and this was an ideal location to explore. Overall, a very nice holiday property in a private location and we would definitely stay again.

“A little gem!”
Reviewed June 19, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

A lovely little apartment in the heart of Derbyshire with Chatsworth, Matlock, Bakewell, and Dovedale (and lots more) on the doorstep. Set in a beautiful country garden - a real labour of love - with lots of great walks near by. With fresh eggs every day this little gem was a real find. The Derbyshire Dales and Peak take some beating.

“Lovely, quiet retreat”
Reviewed May 6, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We've just spent a lovely few days at the Hayloft. It had everything we needed and was an ideal base for walking and sightseeing in this beautiful part of the country. We would definately stay again.

“A wonderfull retreat with stunning scenery”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The Hayloft is a 1st floor apartment with a living room/kitchen and a separate bedroom with en-suit shower/toilet.

Cherry the owner is very hospitable and we arrived to find the tidy clean apartment with a huge bunch of sweet peas on the table in a vase. It was the perfect place for a weeks walking and exploring the area. Everything you need is there. Cherry even lent us some books of walks around the area to get us started.

The garden the property is situated in have obviously had a lot of time spent making it beautiful, a very peaceful place.

We would definitely come again when we visit Derbyshire again.

There are two pubs doing food just over a half mile away, down the hill, and they feature live music at the weekends. You can walk to them in ten minutes or so.

“Clean, cosy, comfortable and cute”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Very peaceful location, spotlessly clean, well equiped, small but well thought out layout. The Hayloft is basically 2 rooms, a lounge/kitchen and bedroom/ensuite. Lovely high ceilings and beams with gorgeous views from every window.

The owner Cherry was very friendly and helpful and we followed a couple of her recommendations of pubs for food and were very happy with these. Cherry sells fresh eggs from her chickens which were very nice. The gardens are very pretty & there is also a small field with a stream running through it that you can walk around.

We found the location good as we visited Chatsworth, Matlock Bath, Bakewell and Buxton and they were all easy to get to. Darley Dale is nearby and had a small selection of handy shops (a spar shop, post office, chemist and Butchers)

Overall we had a very relaxing short break and can't wait to visit again.
