Great Week!
After a friendly welcome from the onsite owner we had a great week at The Rindle with family and friends. A very well appointed house with a great social space for us all to gather to cook, eat, play games, relax, watch TV and films. Plenty of parking space and room sit out or kick a ball around. Excellent location within walking distance of the local pub and lake. Lots of great walks around, especially The Roaches - spectacular! Highly recommended.

Fantastic weekend away with friends
I’d highly recommend The Rindle if you’re looking for a place to stay with a big group/family. The accommodation is very well appointed, with plenty of bathrooms and a huge, sociable kitchen/dining/lounge. The family who own The Rindle have included some simple, but thoughtful touches, that make it a really easy and lovely place to stay. It’s also in a great location, being a short walk to The Lazy Trout Pub and Tittesworth Reservoir, with a cafe and playground.

And return we did !
Following a stay in Nov 2016 we vowed to return and return we did !. Once again a very warm welcome and this time we also booked the Honeystone as well for our large family party. As ever the accommodation was spotless and a bottle of wine awaited our arrival . Isaac came to check all was well after we had settled in. A most enjoyable week was shared with extended family members in very comfortable and spotlessly clean , fully equipped ,accommodation. Once again we intend to return . Highly recommended .

The perfect place for our celebration
Booked the Rindle for my husband's 50th birthday. I could not be more pleased with the accommodation. It was spotless & perfect for our needs. Age range of 5yrs-50yrs and each and everyone enjoyed it, even the teenagers! Suzanne the owner was welcoming, friendly and helpful - key collection etc was easy & nothing was too much trouble. Lovely bottle of fizz & a box of chocolates greeted us on our arrival. The photos on the agency website do not do the Rindle justice, it is wonderful. Fully kitted out with anything you need in the kitchen, games & dvds in the living room. We will 100% book this place for another large celebration. Totally exceeded expectations, don't hesitate to book.

Great house for a large party. We had a big party for my mum there. Great facilities, large kitchen lounge and all the showers good ! Close to things to do for kids, walkers and climbers in the Peak District. Very good owner who was really helpful for all the stay.

Spacious accommodation for a family reunion, fully equipped and within easy reach of hikes and attractions.
The location has lovely views, is quiet and set well back from a country lane but not far from Leek, Buxton, Stoke and Macclesfield for groceries and museums. The Silk Museum in Macclesfield is a must. The Peak District scenery is beautiful, we went walking from the house or drove short distances first. Try renting bikes on the Monsal Trail from Hassop station near Bakewell. Rock climbers will love the nearby Roaches. There was space for our toddler grandchildren to play outside and away from the road. Our group was 8 adults and two toddlers and there was plenty of seating at the very long table and in the lounge, and the 4 bathrooms meant no waiting for showers. I highly recommend this beautiful barn conversion.

Simply outstanding
A most suitable accommodation for any size of party . Ours comprised of 12 people and everything was perfect . The accommodation is extremely well equipped and most comfortable with all the nice touches . There is plentiful heat and ample hot water even when all the showers etc are in use at the same time. On arrival there was a bottle of wine, flowers and chocolates waiting which was a nice welcome. Suzanne ,the owner came and said "hi" and she was most friendly. Nearby there is plenty to do and the local pub ,the lazy trout , is well worth the 5 minute stroll to. We will return here for sure.

Fantastic for large groups
Eleven of our family from around the world stayed In this gorgeous barn. We were very lucky with the weather and had a fab week here. The barn is so roomy and well equipped and I liked the fact that the large kitchen flowed into the lounge so that everyone was together. It was very clean and well equipped.The dining table was huge and sat everybody comfortably with room to spare. There was plenty of sofas in the lounge area. There are two large bedrooms on the ground floor and also a wet room. Please be aware there are steps around the barn which if you are wheelchair bound but I managed fine with crutches.We were greeted on arrival and the chocolates and wine were very much appreciated. There is a pub a few minutes walk away and a reservoir with a lovely play park and places to barbecue and picnic. Water sports were on offer while we were there. There are so many places to visit and the scenery is awesome. There are supermarkets ,shops etc a short drive away. We all enjoyed our stay but the highlight for the boys was the friendly rooster that came to visit each evening to be fed and petted lol. We would definitely recommend this barn and the owners were so helpful. Thanks for having us it was a wonderful holiday.

We are absolutely delighted that you and your family had an excellent get together at The Rindle and had all the facilities and space you could have needed to enjoy your time together! The evening visit from the rooster certainly sounds like a treat, what a lovely thing to look forward to each day! We will be sure to pass your compliments along to the owner and hope that you return for your next family event.

fantastic holiday!
Beautiful building in a beautiful spot. The kitchen is very well stocked and the property has a great communal room for everyone to socialise. Great heating system, very warm throughout and plenty of hot water whenever required. The park at the nearby reservoir was excellent for the children. We would definitely recommend and return, thanks for a great holiday!
