The property

Find a delightful holiday at this enchanting barn conversion found on a working cattle farm in the heart of the Peak District National Park, boasting original features of characterful stonework and beams, this property is ideal for a family or group getaway to the countryside.

Surrounded by gorgeous farmland and landscape views, this rustic dwelling is found in the owner's grounds on a large estate, standing alone within gated walls and a sweeping driveway.

Kick off your muddy shoes as you enter through the utility room, where you can throw your clothes into the washing machine and run yourself a hot bath in the adjoining ground-floor bathroom.

Rustle up a hearty lunch in the country-style kitchen, keeping original features with stone tile flooring, exposed beams, old stable doors, as well as all the contemporary features needed during your self-catered stay, resting in here is a family dining table to tuck into all your home-cooked meals throughout the week.

Also downstairs is a lovely snug room where you can spend a minute to yourself with a warm hot chocolate, cosy blanket and a captivating book on a frosty winter's day, whereas the next-door sitting room can be used for a family film night with its plush sofas, TV, and homely woodburning stove.

Traditional features carry through to the upstairs with exposed beams, slopped ceilings and Velux windows dotted between each room.

Three bedrooms await for you to rest your head after a long day of exploring various walking trails, take your pick between a double, a twin and an adult bunkbed room, all beautifully decorated with lovely bedding and ample storage.

There is also a tiled shower room where you can wake up with a refreshing morning soak, before wrapping yourself with a pleasant towel from the heated rail.

Find a delightful patio area outside, a place to store your bikes, sit in the sun, or rustle up a fabulous lunch on the barbecue and dine alfresco!

The owner's will also let you visit their farm animals in the surrounding fields with their supervision.

This beautiful area of farmland is just a short walk away from Edale village centre, here you can find a village shop, Post Office, and a few local pubs serving food if you fancy dining out of an evening, the village itself is recognised for being the starting point of the Pennine Way walking route, an iconic National Trail suited for a variety of walking capabilities.

Journey over to the pretty Hope Valley village of Castleton to explore its historic cavern and ancient castle, featuring illuminated limestone caves with bones, marine fossils and guided tours.

Buxton is a gorgeous spa town where you can indulge in luxury spa treatments, visit boutique shops; dine in delicious restaurants, as well as a spectacular Opera House.

Visit Ladybower Reservoir, an 11-mile walk with magnificent views of breathtaking countryside, lush moorlands, winding rivers, and lovely villages.

Kinder Scout is the highest point of the Peak District and just a short drive away, at 636 metres above sea level, a difficult hike will take you up to extraordinary views and a striking waterfall, well worth the sore legs the next day.

The Old Cart House is a dreamy escape for a family to explore the wonders of the Peak District National Park.
