    • “the interior is beautifully decorated with loads of space, huge bedroom, the bathroom is spacious with a good shower room, great for refreshing up after a long walk through the woods and lovely countryside, and this make it a walkers paradise, although remote everything the Dales has to offer is close at hand, there are plenty of places to visit. The owners were friendly and helpful, We cannot speak too highly of The Barn. Try it you won't be disappointed. a perfect retreat to combine, a little walking with a pub lunch, a little sight seeing within 20 min drive and a great kitchen for meals in. LOVED IT !”

    • “The Barn is like the "Tardis" small looking BUT with a Big Heart. Everything you could possibly want tastefully decorated,cosy,comfortable,spacious,welcoming. We arrived late at night in the mist and rain but found it easily enough and it is at the remote end of remote perfect for us. For walkers it is paradise and although remote everything the Dales has to offer is close at hand there are plenty of places to visit. The owners were friendly and helpful. We cannot speak to highly of The Barn. Try it you won't be disappointed.”

    • “Peace and tranquility, in a lovely modern barn conversion”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Absolutely loved my stay. The owners were really friendly, and had clearly made a real effort with the property. Gorgeous modern bathroom, lovely kitchen, cosy living room and bedroom. Clean and well presented, with lots of little personal touches - without being overbearing, and definitely not outdated (which has been my experience in many other self-catering cottages). I almost wish the weather had been colder, so I could have tested the wood burner! The only slight downside would be that, due to the (very pretty) exposed beams in the bedroom, there is very little between you and the outside world. I can't comment on how this effects heat loss from the building. but it does mean that everything outside can be heard very clearly. Not much of a problem for early risers, but you may want earplugs if you plan on sleeping in! My one big comment would be that the beading was feather, with no obvious feather-free alternatives. A luxury for some people I don't doubt, but - being severely asthmatic - this was the only real inconvenience. All in all, a lovely peaceful stay in the middle of the stunning Peak District - absolute bliss.”

    Mr Deal, Greenhithe, July 2015

    • “An ideal holiday stay for a couple. It was a warm, comfortable, well equipped barn which was tastefully furnished and had friendly hosts. It was very rural, wonderful views with dramatic scenery. There was excellent walking from the barn with some very good pubs/food in the locality. There were great places to visit nearby. Will go back!”

    Mrs Collier, Telford, May 2015

    • “A lovely cottage in a great location, with stunning views. A very well equipped 'Home from Home.' The owners made us feel very welcome. Would definitely recommend this property for a holiday in the Peak District.”

    • “The location was fantastic and the barn was lovely. The owners were great, they were very welcoming.”

    Mr Arundale, Staines-upon-thames, November 2014

    • “The Barn was lovely and the views were fantastic. Although situated in a remote spot, you were not far from many towns and very good walks.”

    Mr Macleod, Henley-on-Thames, October 2014

    • “The location of Goosetree Barn was fantastic: it's views over surrounding countryside and the feeling of isolation made this a real break. The fact that there were several very good dining pubs within easy distance was also a bonus. The property itself was generous in proportions and really well-appointed. We had a very lovely stay; it was perfect.”

    Ms Torrance, Nottingham, October 2014

    • “Absolutely first class stay. The cottage was beautiful and the owners exceptionally helpful. In a great location for walks from the doorstep and easy access to all parts of the Peak District. The kitchen was fully equipped and relaxing in front of the log burner in the evening was perfect. The views from the cottage over the valley were tremendous. There is nothing bad at all to say about this place.”

    Mr Baggaley, Gateshead, October 2014

    • “Friendly hosts, beautiful cottage, picturesque location. We have loved our stay here and would definitely recommend it.”

About the location


Tideswell 7 miles; Bakewell 12 miles; Matlock 21 miles.

It was the constant 28 degrees centigrade of the bubbling blue waters of Buxton's eight thermal springs that originally attracted the Romans to the town. However it was during the 18th and 19th centuries, under the patronage of successive Dukes of Devonshire, that the Palladian splendour of the Buxton of today was designed and built - including the magnificent semi-circular Crescent, The Great Stable, Hall Bank, The Square, The Pavilion Gardens and The Opera House. Today visitors continue to enjoy these magnificent buildings and gardens, as well as the Opera House's full programme and annual festivals of music and arts. There is good walking close by with rugged peaks to the north and gentle hills and dales to the south. A great base for exploring the Peak District.
