  • “Dragon Hill Barn was excellent!”

    ! ...

    ! There wasn't anything that we needed but it was as if anything we may need had been included. Well appointed kitchen and even a washer dryer was a bonus. Wood burner for colder times and rugs to wrap up in. Not that we needed them in July. I really wanted to light the wood burner but it wasn't cold enough. Very comfy beds and fantastic shower room upstairs added to the whole experience. The village was a little more remote than we expected but we had packed provisions so the lack of a village shop wasn't an issue for us. Two pubs too but not open two or 3 days a week meant local eating out wasn't as we had hoped but we'd only taken a brief look online and not Rod and Lizzies fault. Football was an added factor the week we were away. Great base to drive to Matlock and Bakewell. Chatsworth is a must! If you are the walking or rambling sort trails abound. All in all and weather and location factors taken into account we would stay again for sure

About the location


Carsington Water 2 miles; Matlock 8 miles.

The attractive and unspoilt conservation village of Brassington is perched on a hillside on the outskirts of the Peak District National Park in the midst of glorious open countryside. It is a traditional Peaks, limestone village with many cottages dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries. There are two pubs (both serving good food), and further amenities are available in nearby Matlock, Ashbourne and Bakewell. Close by is beautiful Carsington Water, covering 750 acres with some of the best sailing in the country. The site also offers boating, biking and windsurfing, along with shops, a restaurant and a children’s adventure playground. An excellent base for exploring the Peak District.
