  • "We enjoyed our recent stay at Barn Cottage and is in a good location in the Peak District."

    The cottage is spacious but the kitchen is a little on the small side but for 2 is adequate. I missed there not being a hairdryer and the towels were a little on the small side. If you have a dog the field at the back is huge and there is a nice garden which gets the afternoon and evening sun but the adjacent cottage also uses this to access their cottage. All in all, despite the points mentioned we would return here again if we come back to the area.

  • "Lovely cottage and facilities were great."

    Mattress on kingsize bed was a little unforgiving for us but might be perfect for someone else. Phone signal on EE was awful only working in the windows. Although to be fair phone signal on EE pretty poor across the whole of the Peaks! O2 though was really good. Only need phone to catch up with Asda delivery and daughter so was not really an issue just a frustration.

  • "We had a lovely stay at barn cottage with friends staying in the adjacent cottage."

    Using it as a base for excellent walks in the area. Whilst the kids found the lack of Wi-Fi a big change from the norm. It was good to be together with no device distractions. The Barn cottage was spacious and comfortable and very clean and the enclosed gardens with both properties and the huge walled field at the back gave the dogs plenty of space to be in too (although they were pretty tired from all the walks during the day.) All in all we had a lovely stay and now have a known place to stay if we are in the area again.

  • "A most beautiful, warm and cosy cottage."

    Lovely garden and access to a field which was excellent for the dog. Great situation for visiting different areas of the Peaks. And a wonderful local pub where we were made welcome and served delicious food.

  • "A lovely holiday cottage with a lovely size, secure garden for the dog and a lovely field to use at the back too."

    The cottage itself is cosy but spacious, with lovely decor. The whole place is just lovely and we would definitely stay again. Only thing I would recommend is owners purchasing a cheap high chair, but we did get by putting baby in the pushchair, so no big issue here.

  • "Lovely cottage with big rooms, except kitchen which is rather small."

    Situated in the countryside, very peaceful. The only negative comments: central heating difficult to operate, and one of the lounge windows is right next to the path used by other cottage dwellers. We did enjoy our stay, especially the weather.

  • "Lovely clean cottage, well located with easy access to the wonders of the surrounding area."

    The field is perfect for exhausting an excited dog and there is ample parking. A great base to explore the area from. A really comfortable and cosy cottage with very helpful and friendly hosts.

  • "The cottage was perfect the only problem was it was on an extremely busy road so was very noisy even through the night with lorries travelling along the road from the nearby quarries (which at the time of booking we were not aware of) making it difficult to get a peaceful nights sleep."

    We loved the area and will almost certainly return but to a much quieter location, but we could not fault the cottage at all. The owners were lovely people and very helpful. Tom and Denise

  • "Excellent location and holiday let."

    We had both this property and the next door cottage for extended family which worked well. Great walking and dog friendly. This property has more living room and bedroom space but kitchen has limited space to cook - next door has better kitchen lay out if that’s important to you.

  • "Lovely cottage, very warm and cosy."

    The hosts were very friendly. Beautiful scenery. Lots of interesting walks with the dog, enjoyed using the fields behind the cottage to give him a run, as impossible to let our poodle off the lead in the hills! Lots of "dog friendly" pubs and shops in the local area. NB: No WiFi and no washing machine.

    Set in a lovely garden and surroundings..perfect position to enjoy all the lovely villages and beautiful countryside that the peak district has to offer.on the down side.the central heating boiler was located outside the cottage and was preset by the owner...and because there was no fire we found it cold for many parts of the day...the settee was so uncomfortable that it left us with neck ache....and perhaps a small welcome pack would have been appreciated as most cottages we visit have one and it makes you feel most welcome....overall the cottage was great value for money .easy solution is to slightly raise the price of the cottage to cover the cost of these minor details.overall a great stay .many thanks.

The property

A lovely, detached stone cottage in the heart of Peak Forest, near the town of Buxton, boasting style and charm in a traditional home.

The cobbled access pleasantly leads you straight into the well-presented kitchen, attached to which is a lovely open-plan sitting room with a dining area set for four and sumptuous seating arrangements around the TV.

This makes the perfect social space for dining and entertaining friends during an enjoyable visit.

Finished to a nice standard, the two delightful bedrooms ooze character among the classic furnishings.

The king-size double bed sits under the eaves of the roof, with a skylight directly above for you to enjoy some romantic stargazing on a clear summers' night, whilst the double room enjoys a vaulted ceiling with dark wooden beams off-set with whitewashed walls.

Out on the patio you can enjoy an afternoon over drinks with a light breeze drifting through the garden; the shared access takes you through to a patchwork of verdant fields beyond the enclosed farm land.

Tucked away off the beaten track you can be lost in the natural surround, whilst the road at the end of the drive takes you directly into Peak Forest, where you can delight in the Devonshire Arms local pub and gain a real taste for countryside living.

Nearby you can visit the pretty villages of Edale and Castleton and there are horse riding and cycling opportunities in Hathersage, should they take your fancy.

There are walking opportunities wherever you turn and excellent pubs to stop at along the way.

Barn Cottage is an accommodating property from which to enjoy many an attraction with the family.

About the location


Tideswell 4 miles; Chapel-en-le-Frith 4 miles; Buxton 4 miles.

The ancient and peaceful village of Peak Forest is situated in the heart of the Peak District National Park, boasting an excellent pub, which serves good food. The village is named for the Royal Forest of the Peak, which was an open area used as a royal hunting park rather than a forested area. Peak Forest has a church, which was founded in 1657 by the Countess of Devonshire and until the 18th century, its vicar had considerable freedom in conducting marriage ceremonies, hence Peak Forest became Derbyshire’s Gretna Green. Eldon Hole, one of the seven wonders of the Peak, is surrounded by superb walking country. Nearby are the pretty villages of Edale, the start of the Pennine Way, Castleton, with four spectacular caverns to visit, the ‘plague’ village of Eyam, and Tideswell, where the church is regarded as the cathedral of the Peak. Horse riding, cycling and swimming at the open-air pool in Hathersage and the wonderful Castleton Caves are all available within 7 miles. Enjoy a day out at Alton Towers or visit the impressive Chatsworth House estate, Haddon Hall, or the house and glorious gardens at Lyme Park, all within easy reach.
