Pastures And Parlour Barn And Holly Dale House

Resting at the foot of the Peak District National Park, these luxurious semi-detached barn conversions and detached house have been sympathetically renovated to an exceptional standard. Inside, the cottages retain all of their original character, with charming exposed beams and cosy wood-burning stoves. Interiors, however, remain stylish and contemporary throughout. Spacious, welcoming sitting rooms, complete with smart TVs and well-stocked games cupboards, provide the perfect space to relax and unwind. Meanwhile, under floor heating lets you kick off your shoes and stay toasty throughout the winter months. A high spec kitchen provides everything you need for an informal family supper, special occasion dinner or just a lazy Sunday brunch. The bedrooms in each property are kitted out with everything you need for an authentic home-from-home experience, including fluffy robes, straighteners and hair dryers and smart TVs in every room. However, you’ll struggle to stay indoors when you see what the barns have to offer outside. Each cottage comes equipped with a private sauna and hot tub, where you can relax and enjoy the spot’s stunning sunsets. The grass lawns are ideal for a game of croquet, badminton, swingball and football for which is all provided. You’ll also find a book exchange. If you do decide to explore the surrounding area, you’ve picked the perfect base. The thriving market town of Leek is on your doorstep, Ashbourne is but a short drive, providing fertile ground for antique hunting, restaurants and cafes. As well as easy access to the renowned Peak District National Park, the local area holds many other countryside attractions, including the Dovedale Nature Reserve. Here there’s a plethora of picturesque views, iconic limestone formations and pathways for walking and cycling. Don’t miss a visit to The Roaches, a rocky outcrop carved by wind over the centuries – a great place for walkers, rock climbers and freerunners alike. Meanwhile, Tittsworth Reservoir lies just 10 minutes away, offering various water sports including kayaking, fishing and sailing, as well as an excellent local produce café. For more high-octane adventures, Alton Towers is a 15 minute drive from the cottages and provides a thrilling family day out. Don’t worry about leaving your dog behind for the day either – the cottage owners can provide a dog-sitting service upon request and subject to availability. A fantastic and beautiful area to explore. Note: The three properties, property ref 1024110 Holly Dale House, property ref 1001734 Parlour Barn and property ref 957753 Pastures Barn, can be booked together to accommodate up to 20 people.

The property

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.

There’s also a karaoke machine on hand for musical entertainment, as well as a tuned piano and guitar.

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