  • "Fantastic place to stay for 11 people and room for one more!"

    Never felt like we were crowded. Beautiful views and beautiful house. Plenty of parking space and good sized rooms, the showers were amazing and we never got cold because of the Aga. Thank you for letting us stay.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Rough Bank Barn for 3 big family birthdays."

    All generations of the family enjoyed the stay. The hot tub was a big favourite of the children and the BBQ meant we could grill despite the weather being very wet! The barn itself I was gorgeous with a great social space downstairs which automatically brings everyone together. Really comfy beds, though the upstairs bedrooms aren’t the quietest, so I’d suggest having those who are early to bed or like a lie in to be downstairs. It’s a tranquil setting, with good walks around the area and easy access to Newhey village - it’s a steep track though so anyone with limited fitness/mobility might struggle with the walk back up! Great communication from the hosts when needed, we’d definitely stay again.

  • "Great property and clean but had problems with the water supply and the hot tub."

    The tub was slimy and when we all got out we all had a real musty smell on our bodies. The wife wanted a bath to have a soak after the tub and when the plug was removed to let the water out there was a load of grit left as residue at the bottom. Not great

    Hello Thank you for your review, and that you liked Rough Bank Barn I can only apologise for your experience of our hot tub , David my husband changes the water after every guest visit . If there was a problem I had hoped you would have mentioned it to David when you spoke with him as he popped up mid week to check the PH levels in the hot tub . But you didn’t, David found everything to be fine . Regarding your wife finding the grit after the bath , the only explanation I can think is she brought it with her when walking across the garden and patio back to the house . It’s one of life’s mysteries. I apologise once again. Regards Ruth and David Property Owner

    The house and garden is perfect as a party house with lots of space for eating, dancing and general party shenanigans! Hugo the bulldog loved the enclosed garden and we were never worried he could escape. The hot tub was ready for us on arrival (it is just a hot tub without bubbles) and we made the most of this and the fabulous BBQ hut. We couldn’t quite get the hang of the Arga cooker but managed well enough. We did want the beds that could be separated to be so but this wasn’t done on our arrival. However, with a phone call the owners came and supplied us with more linen so we could do it ourselves. A wonderfully memorable birthday and engagement party was had by all. Thank you and we will have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and family.

    bedding and towels lovely quality. underfloor heating provided welcome warmth. hot tub wonderful. we enjoyed the local reservoir for walks/runs. a few challenges reported for our relative who is wheelchair-dependent. She can walk a limited distance with support, this was essential. She could not access any showers due to steps. for those unable to mobilise they would have faced more difficulties. using the aga for cooking was a bit challenging for the inexperienced (baking cakes and heating oil for frying) but we ate well!

    Property was very clean. There was more than enough space for 12 people.

  • "The barn was clean on arrival and is well equipped."

    The beds are comfortable and there is lots of room in all the bedrooms for storage. The showers are powerful and the jacuzzi baths were nice to use. The views around the barn are lovely and it well tucked away from the town, so it is very peaceful. The garden is very dog friendly and the owners leave towels for dogs for wiping muddy paws. We enjoyed using the BBQ hut! The owners were very quick to respond to any queries/ issues we had and have excellent local knowledge. The tram, in the town, is really convenient for getting into the centre of Manchester, only takes 45 minutes and is easy and cheap to use. There is lots of countryside around, so although you are close to lots of big towns and cities you can get away from it all. The main villages/ tourist attractions of the Peak District are about 75 minutes away. Only improvements I would suggest, would be more cupboards for storage of food and a welcome pack. Also, either an airer or washing line to enable you to dry clothes outside. The barn is ideal for big groups looking to get away together.

    . This place absolutely exceeded all of our expectations. The interior and exterior were finished to the highest standard and the whole place was immaculately clean.

David tends to the hot tub every day and even asks before he enters his own garden which is really respectful given they own it!. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone and don’t forget to visit Ruth’s shoe shop too in the nearby village. I would class Ruth and David as new found friends now which is another bonus.

Very, very well equipped, although would have liked a teapot. but it wasn't a problem. Very warm, didn't need to light the fire. REALY comfortable beds. Our 2 dogs loved the garden and managed to stay out of the pond....a concern of mine before we went, but its so well designed he didn't even try. loved the aga. We had a few walks from the property so no need to use your car, although the steep hill and cobbles up to it might be a problem if your unsteady on your feet. There are so many good things I could say about this place. Location was a big plus, so many things to do without going far. Adventure now, Stonerig Raceway Scalextric, climbing wall, theatre as well as the countryside on your doorstep. Something for everyone. we managed to do it all.

  • "Fantastic Cottage."

    We've been doing these getaways for about 8 years now. This was the one we were a little apprehensive about as it wasn't far from where we live and didn't feel "exotic" and If you look at the pictures in comparison to other cottages - you wouldn't be as enthused as you would with other cottages that are on Sykes (or other websites) However, the pictures honestly don't do it justice - it's like a reverse catfish. The main lounge dining area is huge. The bedrooms were large and some bathrooms were large too. I'm a bit of a snob about showers and this one is probably 2nd best shower I've had in a cottage/lodge/villa. The beds are insanely comfy. Then there's the outside - again - miles bigger than the pictures make it look. But also much more picturesque. The BBQ hut is a good size too and a real cool place to hang out. Hot Tub isn't massive but was decent size. The views are tip top and there's the allure of sheep and cattle in the neighbouring fields. The pub down the road is also a decent gaff. Nice staff and good Scampi - the chips are good too. The only slightly negative things - one was the Aga - it was on all the time and the first day was pretty hot so it added to that. The glasses were also plastic and a bit random (not a massive issue for us really) But I'm nit picking - all in all top cottage - 10 on 10! Oh and we also met 1/2 of the owners who was a top bloke - sometimes you worry they're going to be a bit snooty but he showed us round on first day and sorted the hot tub chemicals on the 2nd day and was a good craic!

The property

Enveloped by the rural countryside of Greater Manchester is Rough Bank Barn, offering an outstanding self-catering experience to this peaceful part of the county, which lies on the edges on the Peak District National Park.

This superb barn conversion is an exceptional find for large groups of families, friends, avid ramblers and those alike to use as a base to explore the surrounding countryside, as well as for paying a visit to the exciting city of Manchester.

After travelling up the single-track road, find plenty of space to park your car and admire the endless open countryside views, before pushing open the front door of the stone-built property to reveal the large open-plan living room.

In here, exposed beams and vaulted ceilings frame this perfectly portioned room; the huge floor-to-ceiling windows are a striking element, as is the woodburning stove set within a traditional surround.

Cosy up after a bracing day walking on the plush sofas to tune into the TV, with the fire setting the ambiance and filling the room with a gentle warmth or gather at the dining table to relish in the company of your loved ones over a home-cooked meal and an accompanying tipple.

Discover the well-equipped kitchen to the opposite end of the room, where contemporary tiles lie beneath a traditional AGA, which takes centre stage before all of the other quality appliances that are on hand for catering your own meals and snacks.

Working in synergy with the kitchen is the handy utility room, housing a freezer and laundry equipment, as well as plenty of preparation space to keep the kitchen clutter free for the chef of the group, whilst they are cooking up a storm.

At this end of the property, a staircase takes you to a super king-size double bedroom, which boasts large wardrobe storage, whilst back on the ground floor are a further three bedrooms, comprising of two super king-size bedrooms, and a king-size double bedroom, each one boasting windows out to the garden and an elegant décor to complement.

Concluding the ground floor is a sleek shower room and a deluxe bathroom, featuring a Jacuzzi bath.

The master suite can be found on the first floor, where quality linens drape across the sumptuous double bed and it has a private en-suite bathroom, containing a wall-mounted TV, a luxurious Jacuzzi bath and a separate walk-in shower, whilst the final bedroom of the property boasts an impressive king-size bed, where sleep is sure to come easy.

At Rough Bank Barn, the garden has been designed as an extension of the house itself, with lush green lawn areas for children to play and your canine companion to meander, whilst you kick back on the sun loungers to soak up the sunshine or dine alfresco on the patio area.

Continuing to impress, within the garden there is a barbecue hut, where you can light up the fire and huddle inside to relish in this unique experience before savouring a moment of relaxation by dipping into the hot tub, where the countryside views continue to captivate.

If you can tear yourself away from this wonderful retreat, venture into the nearby village of Newhey, where you will find a plethora of amenities, ranging from supermarkets, pubs and an array of eateries to suit all palates and pockets!

Alternatively, travel slightly further afield to the large town of Rochdale, home to more amenities or to the city of Manchester, which is just 16.5 miles away and is easily accessible with a tram stop in the village to get you there, where you will find more places to eat and drink, as well as the magnificent Manchester Art Gallery, the People's History Museum and the imposing 13th century Manchester Cathedral.

Avid ramblers and birdwatchers can visit the nearby Crompton Moor to catch glimpses of the interesting wildlife or take on the challenge of a hike through Fairbrook Naze, boasting unrivalled views of the luscious green landscapes.

Within immediate walking distance and with accessible paths takes you to a selection of reservoirs to enjoy including Ogden, Kitcliffe, Rooden, Norman Hill, Piethorn and Hanging Lees.

Further walking opportunities can be found within the nearby Peak District National Park, whilst the local attractions of the Hollingworth Lake Visitor Centre and the National Trust owned Marsden Moor Estate, will delight a family of all ages.

Bring your loved ones to Rough Bank Barn to share an exceptional holiday.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
