“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed September 29, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We loved our stay at the Dutch Barn. The property was lovely, spacious and clean with all the facilities needed for a comfortable stay. The hot tub was perfect after the long walks in the day and really made the place extra special. The location is beautiful and a great place to get away from it all. The owners (Jonathan and Gill) are also very friendly and available if needed.

“Great place for a relaxing a stylish celebration”
Reviewed September 21, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We booked The Dutch Barn for a celebration of a special birthday. We wanted somewhere comfortable that would easily accommodate 6 for a week, and thought that the hot tub would be fun.
The property is in a pretty and peaceful village with lovely walks and glorious views. It's a couple of miles to walk to Bakewell across fields, although it's a bit up and down! There is a pub in the village though.
We were very pleased with the accommodation - everything was very stylish and finished to a good quality. There was plenty of room for relaxing and the hot tub was a delight. The drinks fridge was great too!!
It was really good to have somewhere to sit outside at both the front and the back of the property - meant that we could make the most of the sunshine. The room with the single beds was small - we had hoped to be able to push these together, but the size and shape of the room makes this impossible. However, we managed with this, and the lovely accommodation elsewhere in the property more than made up for it.
A lovely rental, and we would certainly recommend it and book again should we revisit.

“Just what we wanted for our weekend break”
Reviewed September 19, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The Dutch Barn suited our schoolgirls' reunion perfectly. Spotlessly clean, comfortable beds with beautiful linen, a well equipped kitchen, big sofas and an ipod dock. We had brought everything we needed, but the owners provided a welcome pack (with wine!), and fresh flowers, which is a lovely touch. From the Barn you can do lovely circular walks from short to strenuous (OS map 24 The White Peak - there's a copy in the kitchen) and there's a tea room as you come back up the hill into the village. We ate dinner at The Lathkil twice (great food) and returned for an evening in the hottub. Fabulous. We couldn't have wished for more.

Liked best: Hot tub was amazing and it was a great base.
Liked least: No staples provided, eg oil, tin foil, tea, but not a deal-breaker and meant we ate out all the time (lovely but not always great for the waistline)!!

“Amazing...fabulous...loved it!”
Reviewed April 29, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Absolutely fantastic weekend away with the girls...the mum's away for a break!! We had the most amazing time. The house was beautifully set out and furnished, very clean and well equipped...spacious and comfortable...couldn't have asked for more. Love the drinks fridge and the hot tub was a dream, even in the rain! The owners were easy to contact and the house keeper was very welcoming in checking all was ok. No complaints whatsoever and have every intention of returning. The village is beautiful, dinner in the local Lathkil Hotel/pub was fantastic and within a stone's throw, walking along the Lathkil Dale was amazing too. Have no hesitate in recommending.

“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

7 friends stayed here over Easter and we all thought the barn was a lovely place to stay. It is decorated really well and is very well equipped. It is very modern and light with plenty of room in the lounge for sitting and eating. The hot tub is a lovely addition and great after a long walk. It is located in a very pretty part of the peak distract with plenty of walks on the doorstep
