The double height hallway leads to a large and fully equipped kitchen/dining room that can seat up to 14. A large fridge freezer, double oven with 8 hobs and a large convection microwave/oven ensure that cooking for your group is manageable. The extra large upstairs living area and separate games room make this property ideal for big groups of all ages. There is a downstairs shower room with separate toilet and upstairs bathroom with bath, sink and toilet. We welcome dogs however there is a charge of £10 per dog per stay. For larger groups, The Little Barn at Gib Torr Farm is the sister property to The Barn House and can sleep an additional 6 people in an open plan setting - for details please contact the owner. Please note there is no mobile phone signal or 3G connectivity in the barn due to our location. There is however a landline that can be used by guests. More

About the neighborhood
Located where the three shires meet - Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire - the barn is well located for the abundance of activities the beautiful Peak District has to offer. Stunning walks can be found on the doorstep and numerous cosy pubs within a 10 minute drive. The thriving market towns of Buxton and Leek are 5 miles away and are well placed for shopping and a wander round or a night out.
Getting around
A car is necessary if you want to get out and enjoy the local area.
