“Pre Xmas holiday for family”
Reviewed January 6, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Such a lovely cosy comfortable cute cottage, it really was lovely. We had a week here with a full house, 4 adults 1 teenager a baby & a dog! It was tight at times but having the 2 bathrooms definitely helped & there's a nice large entrance hall.
The bedrooms are beautiful & comfortable & there's everything you need for a self catering stay. You can tell a lot of love has gone into making this place. It's a lovely location for walks, a good pub few minutes walk away. Also Bakewell only short drive, Matlock not far either.
We all enjoyed our time here & would return again.

“Perfect cosy cottage in a great location ”
Reviewed September 9, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A beautiful cottage in a great location, set in a lovely little village near Bakewell in the heart of the Peak District. Lovely and clean, very peaceful. Pets are welcome which is an added bonus. Didn't want to leave, will definitely return!

A wonderfully decorated and furnished barn. So quite in an idyllic setting. Stayed with four family members and little dog. Such a relaxing setting. Spectacular walks. Don't miss the village tea garden and a meal at the village pub. We will all be returning very soon. A perfect break for us all. Bakewell 2 minutes drive and we were here for the monthly Farmers market. Perfect in every-way.

“Cosy cottage, fantastic location”
Reviewed April 7, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The Rustic Barn, in Over Haddon, is set in a great location in the heart of the Peak District. There are lovely walks directly from the cottage, that we did on a couple of days despite the rain! It is also very close to Bakewell, which is also easy enough to walk to.

We are a family of 5, with 2 adults and 3 children (8, 12, 14). The cottage has two double rooms and a single room, so we split the kids between one of the double rooms and the single room, which worked out well. The main double room is spacious and has plenty of hanging/cupboard space for clothes. The second double room is a little tight on space. The single room has a nice large single bed, although it would be nice if the desk was a chest of drawers as my daughter had to put her clothes in piles on the floor.

The upstairs bathroom is spacious having a has sink, toilet and large bath. It would have been nice to have a shower in this room, as with 5 people getting ready in the morning the single shower downstairs was a hot spot!!

The downstairs bathroom has a sink, toilet and shower. The shower space is spacious and the shower powerful, very nice.

The kitchen/dinner area is a little cramped, in fact we only ever ate together at the same time on a couple of occasions as there is not enough sitting at the dinner table for 5. We did drag the rocking chair in from the lounge on those occasions in order to sit 5 around the table. I think a little re-jigging of the table and the addition of a further chair would improve this.

The oven does not have any markings on the temperature control, so it's a lottery as to what temperature you are cooking food at. I think they have probably worn off over time. We cooked pizza once, but didn't risk cooking anything else without knowing the temperature.

The lounge is cosy and we spent a couple of evenings watching DVDs after a days walking.

“Comfy cottage, lovely location, excellent value”
Reviewed March 26, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Thanks to the owners for accomodating a very last minute booking and an even nicer surprise to be greeted by such a well appointed cottage. Homely and comfortable in a great location, this suited us perfectly, just a pity our visit was so brief. Still a perfect excuse for a longer visit next time ! No hesitation in highly recommending the Rustic Barn.

“Beautiful barn in stunning surroundings”
Reviewed March 18, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed last weekend at this lovely little barn. There were 5 of us so seating arrangements were just right. The living, kitchen and dining areas are cosy and the kitchen had everything we could have wished for. Upstairs is beautiful, the soft furnishings are good quality and tasteful and the beds very comfy! Maybe a stool at the dressing table in the master bedroom would have helped as there was nowhere to sit at a mirror to get ready. There is no whirlpool bath, this has been replaced by a corner standard bath and a shower above it would be good for larger parties as we all had to take it in turns to use the one shower which is downstairs.
All in all a lovely stay in a cute barn in stunning countryside.
