    The Parlour Barn was simply stunning inside, it actually felt alot bigger than it looked in the pictures! And the whole house was spotless, I didn't see a single piece of dust or dirt anywhere. The views from the house are just amazing - rolling hills and the sheep & lambs! The hot tub was perfect, clean and all set up ready to use, and under a cover in case of bad weather. The sauna was also lovely and clean too. We absolutely loved the games room! We spent the whole day in there and didn't get bored, we loved the karaoke machine and the bar with the saddle stools were so cool! There is plenty of space for 6 people, it didn't feel cramped at all and you could easily stay here for a week. Lots of nice touches like separate towels for showering and using the hot tub, and nice fluffy robes to use, also the welcome hamper was such a wonderful surprise! The garden is lovely too, plenty of space if you have dogs or children with you. Lots of local walks on your doorstep and a gorgeous spa only 30 mins away, and the local town is lovely with lots of choices of restaurants. I 100% wouldn't hesitate to stay here again! We're already looking at booking the bigger house to come and stay with family in the summer :)

    Definately the best equipped, most comfortable, well thought out home we've stayed in. Nothing was too much trouble and in particular the help from the owners throughout the stay was invaluable - great recommendations for places to visit, as well as stay. To give an idea of just how good they were.... despite being in the middle of the peak district and amazing for walks, our 'teens' were falling about and moaning / end of the world that one of the playstation controllers was a bit slow. Just happened to mention it to Jo and less than an hour later a brand new controller was delivered personally, and in the little darlings hands. And they were quiet for an entire day. Bonus points. We were a family of 5 plus two v active boxer dogs - who loved EVERYTHING, particularly being able to run around in the massive outdoor space and also dipping their noses into the jacuzzi!

    The beds were incredibly comfortable and the pillows were like nothing we had slept on before. Jo the host was good enough to share the make with us as it cured my bad back and my mother-in-law's arthritic pain! We had so much fun exploring and playing the games in the shed on the beautifully kept lawn which was ideal for the crochet and badminton. We had a lot of fun in the games hut especially when we used the cowboy bar with saddle stools. This aided our kareokee attempts. Jo cooked us two delicious meals that were of fascistic quality and satisfied even the fuzziest eaters. Gluten free was also no problem. The owners could not have been more accommodating. Nothing was too much bother. The barn was full of surprises and equipped like no other we have ever stayed in before. They're were 6 draws of games. We even had permission to book an animal party from Animal Magic in Buxton as our disabled son couldn't get out and about. That worked brilliantly. We aimed for a good holiday to make happy memories and we got that and at so much more! It was worth every penny and we'd happily return. What an absolute jem of a find.

We ended up having the game shack to ourselves which was also made with great thought as there was a good choice of games. This is a great place if you just want to relax. May not be the most appropriate if you want to do some neighbourhood walks. We drove out to the nearest reservoir which had some good walking routes. Other than that, can not fault the place, the owners are very accommodating and the place is beautiful, definitely worth your time and money.

    We all said that the facilities and decor had no expensives spared and we all spent a lot of time in the games barn, hot tub and even the sauna. The house was beautiful and very comfortable-perfect for a time away with family or friends! The information folder was super useful and even had walk information which we used. But we cannot thank Jo and her husband enough as one of our party lost his watch whilst we were away and despite us looking there, we couldn’t find it. We mentioned it as we left and the team there have spent a lot of time looking for it which, on its own, was above and beyond what they had to do! Days later, Jo has rang to say they’ve found it and will spend it back to us-we cannot thank them enough for letting us stay in this gorgeous place but also returning the watch back. Would recommend this place to anyone, of any age for, any occasion!

Owner attentive without being overbearing, from the initial text to say property ready ahead of published check-in time, to dog-sitting and dinner cooking to helping return a child’s left-behind coat have the impression that nothing would have been too much trouble.

  • "The Parlour Barn was amazing."

    A beautiful property which was ideally located. It felt like you were miles from anything but just a short drive into Leek. Gorgeous countryside with amazing sunsets. The sauna and hot tub were great and we had lots of fun in the games shack. The barn itself was clean and comfortable and fitted out to a high standard with everything we needed. I would highly recommend staying here and we will hopefully do it again.

  • "Parlour Barn was a truly magnificent holiday and the most luxurious place we have ever stayed!"

    It exceeded expectation in every way. The hot tub watching the sun set was beautiful and the powerful jets were welcomed following unforgettable walks over the Roaches and over the stepping stones at Dove Dale and climbing up into the caves. We even saw wild deer on the ridge. Close by Leek was great for shopping and had something for everyone including the dog. We spent many hours in the games room playing air hockey, pool, table football, piano and blue tooth our music to the karaoke system. The retro arcade system and PS4 kept our son entertained. The space gave everyone a place to just be. The mirror with blue tooth in the bathroom let everyone play there fav tunes while soaking in a very deep bath! We can't wait to return you have done an amazing job on the barn and we had a wonderful time.

  • "Absolutely superb cottage."

    After a long drive, this is the sort of accomodation that just makes you glad you made the trip! The standard of the conversion and fit out is awesome, and a real credit to the owners. Luxury is an over used term, but not in this case. There was nothing that felt rushed or skimped on, and every creature comfort and convenience had been thought of and provided to a very high standard. The games barn was equally impressive, and in an american western theme which worked brilliantly. Pool table, air hockey, table tennis, table football, karioke, piano, and the best bit........ an old skool table arcade machine! If we could have changed anything, it would have been great to stride out on foot along local footpaths from the door, but we didnt find any nearby, so it was roadside walking or across the fields that are owned with the cottage. Never mind though.......just get back in the jaccuzi!! Would recommend this cottage to anyone - book it with confidence

    I was amazed by the level of detail the owners have gone in to in order to ensure that every comfort is provided here. I came equipped with all the basics for the week but didn't need them - everything from washing up liquid to coffee pods is already provided. Rooms are well appointed, decorated thoughtfully and stylishly and are extremely comfortable. I haven't slept so well in a long long time! This is a lovely quiet place with a view and evening sunset to die for. The games room is great and provided us with a handy distraction whilst the weather was misbehaving. There's plenty to do in the local area and the drive along to the farmhouse is simply breathtaking. I only had need to contact the owner once and my request was dealt with straight away. The farmhouse is well worth the price - go on - treat yourself.

    We would thoroughly recommend this property, it completely exceeded our expectations. Fantastic owners that cared for our poorly dog so we could have days out and treated her like one of their own and made her so welcome. We can not wait to rebook for next year. We would struggle to find anywhere better.

  • "Brilliant place."

    very clean and inviting. Home from home. Marvelous Kitchen, Hot tub and sauna.... especially after a long days walk. Kitchen - coffee machine was great, although the coffee pods were missing- I personally think this was a mistake as the milk pods were there! Please add washing up brush& sponge. Oven gloves would be a good addition. Loved the games room. It could do with renewing the cues as we could not chalk them. Overall, a fab place. Well done to the owners.

    Hi, thank you for staying at our property and thank you for your feedback, Just to make you aware, appropriate cleaning utensils and over gloves are provided. I have now left a note in the welcome pack to advise where you can find these in future. Kindest regards. Property Owner

Situated on the outskirts of the thriving town of Leek, in Staffordshire, and resting alongside the Peak District National Park, is this wonderful barn conversion.

Parlour Barn provides an exceptional base for exploring all this picturesque region has to offer, with a wonderfully modern decor inside, giving you a warm and welcoming feeling.

Spend you evenings in the open-plan living room, with a lovely L-shaped sofa to curl up on, and a woodburning stove for that extra bit of warmth.

The kitchen has all the appliances you could need to cook up a storm for the whole family, with a large dining area for family gatherings.

There are three lower ground floor bedrooms, all exceptionally decorated with modern furnishings and their own TV's and are individual to store your personal items and served by a family bathroom.

Delight in the provided hot tub in the enclosed garden to the front, where you can sink into the warm water and let those bubbling jets work their magic.

Or you can enjoy the sauna after a day's walking.

Continuing to impress is the thatched deluxe heated outdoor garden hut ideal for outdoor dining, entertaining and playing games.

Just down from the cottage lies the communal games shack – the ultimate Wild West-themed games room for fun with friends and family.

Here you’ll find pool, air hockey, table tennis, table football and a classic arcade game console featuring 60 of those retro favourites we all know and love.

A perfect place to return to after a long day sightseeing.
