    The owners (Peter and Joanne) are very helpful and easily contactable had we had any problems (which we didn't).They have clearly put a lot of thought and care into Whites Barn with lots of high quality finishing touches and luxuries. The welcoming hamper was very much appreciated, with everything we could have needed for our first breakfast, sweet treats plus a bottle of prosecco! We took our two little boys with us who were very comfortable on the sofa bed, while we were in our little sanctuary upstairs, there was plenty of room for all of us. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to be back soon! Thank you!

Next door the Young Vanish Pub serves great breakfasts, perfect fuel ahead of long days out in the Peak District and at the Nottinghamshire attractions, Whites’ Barn is also the perfect base for both local walks to the National Trust property of Hardwick Hall with its 16th century Inn and Restaurant or a short journey takes you to the the local market towns of Matlock, Matlock Bath, Bakewell and Buxton with their excellent shops, inns and restaurants.

In addition to the Hardwick Estate further short journey attractions include Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Newstead Abbey “once home to the romantic poet Lord Byron” or even pick a spot to picnic in the 3800 acres of Clumber Park, if history is your thing, the castles of Pevril, Riber and Bolsover are all local and worth a visit.

Always a hit with Children of any age, is Chatsworth farm and adventure playground plus the all year round theme parks of Alton Towers or Heights of Abraham not forgetting the Cable Cars at Matlock Bath (also the place to be especially on a Sunday if you are keen on motorbikes).

Still fancy something different?

Why not visit the Blue John and Speedwell mines at Castleton or visit the Crich Tramway Museum.

For those feeling active take your own, or hire a bike at Sherwood Pines with its a labyrinth of cycle and walking trails and while you there why not head over to visit Sherwood Forest with its legend of Robin Hood.

Whites’ Barn is approached via an impressive electric gateway, opening onto a spacious forecourt providing secure off-road parking for one medium size vehicle in addition to further off road parking adjacent the pedestrian entrance and small enclosed private patio area.

Enter into the property where the vaulted ceilings are a striking element boasting electrically operated Velux windows with black out blinds, walk across the beautiful underfloor heated porcelain tiles before discovering the inky blue and oak kitchen with all the modern appliances one would wish for as well as a delightful welcome hamper and a bottle of fizz!

After an evening of good food, drinks and company, flick on the Smart Netflix TV and get cosy on the sofa to unwind before heading up to bed via the oak and glass staircase to the mezzanine bedroom where crisp white linens and gorgeous pillows drape across the double bed, complete with a plush Simba mattress, bliss!

The exterior at White’s Barn is equally as lovely, with an enclosed courtyard flanked by laurel and bay trees, offering a sunny spot for alfresco dining in the summer months.
