Property Description

Set in 2 acres of land, this unique 300-year-old stone barn has been converted into very stylish and spacious living accommodation.

Set in the heart of the Peak District National Park, near to Castleton and Hope Valley, there are footpaths and bridleways for walking direct from the door, or guests can simply relax in the garden and enjoy the wonderful scenery. Castleton is a popular village, only 10 minutes away, with the Blue John Caverns and various other caverns to discover. The Old Barn is ideally situated for exploring Whaley Bridge, the spa town of Buxton and Matlock, as well as Chatsworth House which is a beautiful country mansion and popular with visitors.

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The Old Barn is a little treasure hidden away, the facilities were fantastic and out group had a throughly good time. The owners are lovely and very helpful. Would highly recommend this accomadation to everyone. Oct 2012.
  2. This was an excellent find! The property was exactly what we were looking for and met the needs of all nine adults, 1 child and dog. The views are amazing and we have all decided we would like to go back again next year. Honestly could not of asked for more from the property. Spoke to owners on the run up to our visit and found them to be extremely nice. Truly a holiday we will never forget - thank you. May 2012.
  3. This is first class accommodation for a family holiday. Ideal on different levels for all age ranges. The owner put the swimming pool heating on 24 hours for 3 days (extra charge) but well worth it, then on nightime for remainder of week. The weather was excellent, used the pool everday - barbecue facility is ten out of ten - had three and the outside bar again is brilliant. Lovely and private - you can walk to the pub steep climb back or get a taxi. Good shopping facilities within 10 min drive Tesco and Sainsbury’s deliver to the address.Will return. March 2012.
  4. Great Cottage with excellent facilities, had a fab time staying here. Didnt go out without the car but not too far to various places. Sept 2011.
  5. Very friendly and helpful owners, great location the photos on the website don’t do it justice. I will definitely be looking at booking this property again. July 2011.
  6. A lovely relaxing holiday in a beautiful location. Accommodation very comfortable, clean and well equipped. There was plenty of space so that family members could spread out and do their own thing. Plenty to do e.g. pool, audio visual stuff etc. Owners helpful and courteous. June 2011.
  7. We went Friday to Monday group of ladies 30-35 the weather that weekend was fabulous sunshine all weekend so we made the most of the pool and the garden bar. This cottage is truly a magical place and well enjoyed and loved by everyone who came, we are even talking about doing it again next year as we had such a great time and memories that will last a lifetime. Fully recommend to anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of busy life styles and completely chill out. June 2011.
  8. It was an excellent base for our family holiday/get together. It also offered enough space so everyone could enjoy their own space as well. The children especially enjoyed the cinema, pool table and the outdoor area. We even got a dip in the pool in April. We loved the view over the valley. April 2011.
  9. Amazing property. Quiet location with stunning views. Perfect if you like to walk. Very spacious and some hidden luxuries inside for wet days. In easy reach of Chapel-en-le-frith and Buxton by car, train or bus. Buxton has a lot to offer. The station in Chapel offers direct service to Manchester. Great for a day out. Highly recommend The Fallow Deer pub at the foot of Bowden Lane. Superb food and service. The local ales are tasty too! March 2011.
  10. A very spacious & comfortable house; ideal for a family get together with plenty to do indoors (games /music room, home cinema) in poor weather. Plenty of outdoor facilities for better weather. Beautiful views from the house & garden. 5 levels would make this property unsuitable for anyone with mobility problems. Feb 2011.
  11. The owners were wonderful due to extreme weather conditions they suggested we travel up the day before at no extra charge to ensure we were in for Xmas.

  14. Spacious, well equipped house ideal for family get together. July 2010.
  15. Excellent house for family get togethers. Spacious accommodation with lots to interest all age ranges. Cinema and games room a real bonus and outdoor pool fun. Beautiful views from living room window and garden. Owners very helpful and easily contactable. July 2010.
