  • "Had a fantastic week, at this first rate property, which was absolutely fabulous."

    It was well equipped, extremely clean and very comfortable. During our stay a couple of issues arose that we’re out of control of the owner Alison, who regardless, went above and beyond to rectified things, keeping us continually informed. Would highly recommend this lovely barn conversion and we intend to return.

  • "The Haybarn was immaculate."

    A warm and comfortable base with a friendly, helpful and responsive owner. There are three generously furnished double bedrooms, a big kitchen with more than ample cupboard space & worktops. It's also in a great location for walkers and cyclists or indeed for anyone wanting to explore the Peak District. Highly recommended and would love to return.

  • "This is the second time we have stayed in the property."

    It is in a beautiful location among the Derbyshire hills and dales and very near to the Tissington trail. The cottage is comfortable, clean, well equipped and furnished to a very high standard. There is also a bike store. The owner is very responsive

  • "The cottage was very clean, comfortable and quiet, loved listening and watching the cows."

    Ideal base for visiting the dales. The only downfall is lack of outside space but this didn’t effect our holiday and would not stop us from revisiting.

    The work Alison and Michael put in to make the barn welcoming is obvious to see. Immaculately clean with the most wonderful and well equipped kitchen. Fantastic bathrooms and lovely comfortable beds. We will definitely be back for our 4th visit in the future.

  • "This is a really lovely stone barn in the middle of rolling countryside."

    The Tissington Trail is a short walk away, along with other footpaths and so is a great base for walkers and cyclists. The interior decor is beautiful, the beds are comfortable and the bathrooms high quality. The owner was very accommodating in providing a non- slip mat for the shower on request. All in all we had a great stay. The only very slight negative was having to go out shopping for toilet rolls! It may having been stated in the info that these are not provided, but if so, I missed it. So remember to take some with you.

  • "Have enjoyed our stay at The Haybarn exploring the area."

    The cottage is clean, spacious, warm, comfy beds and well appointed with everything you need in the kitchen and plenty of hot water for our family of four. The only thing I would is that we stayed for two weeks but only 7 dishwasher tables and two toilet rolls were left so take plenty with you. The owner did say to ring her if we needed anything but I don’t think we should have had to ring her as these should have been left. The cottage ia a credit to the owners.

    From beautiful views to superb facilities, the cottage is very well appointed, comfortable and cosy, and the ideal place to be for great walks (Tissington Trail, River Dove) or just for sitting outside with a brew and enjoying the peace. The owners are lovely, and nothing is too much trouble if you need any help. We’ll definitely be back! Thank you :)

  • "Excellent stay in well equipped cottage (would have liked a sieve or something similar for draining rice but a minor issue!"

    ). Lovely location and beds very comfortable. Weather warm enough to sit outside and enjoy the long views westwards and across to the Tissington Trail. Enjoyed a circular walk down to the River Dove and back through Biggin Dale and then along the Tissington Trail back to the cottage (approx 7 miles). Also cycled both directions on the Tissington Trail which is practically on the doorstep and being elevated for the most part has fantastic views - probably the best off road cycle trail we have cycled so far in this country. Lockable cycle storage barn a real plus for anyone bringing their bikes. Will be back to cycle the other trails in the Peak District. The only concern I would have if there in the summer heat is not being able to open the window for ventilation in the ground floor bedroom since it is adjacent the road and cannot be securely opened a fraction and is only secure therefore when kept shut. I'm sure a solution could be found for this.

    We had 2 teenagers and a small worry was that the WIFI would be awful but it was actually really good and reliable (which was great as my son needed to do some revision for his mocks). The underfloor heating was a bonus as well, as we even experienced a snow day! The barn's kitchen has every utensil you could want and I even got the teenagers to cook on 2 nights, which they enjoyed doing. We would love to come again, with the Tissington Trail on your doorstep, this is a walkers/runners/cyclists delight!

About the location


Bakewell 10 miles; Buxton 10 miles.

Hartington, situated in the Dove Valley in the Peak District National Park, was an important market centre in the Middle Ages, having been granted a market charter in 1203. Today the ever-popular village boasts lovely tea rooms, a cheese shop, old curiosity shops, traditional pubs and a splendid market square where the stone-carved village pump, once an important source of water for the villagers, still stands on the green. The local bars stock local ales brewed at the Leatherbritches Brewery in Fenny Bentley and Whim Ales in Hartington itself. The former Hartington railway station, about a mile and half from the village itself, is now a picnic area and the converted track is known as the Tissington Trail, popular with both walkers and cyclists. Hartington is also a good starting point for walking along Beresford Dale, a beautiful place with its curiously formed cliffs and rocks. Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are both within a 20 minute drive, and Alton Towers is within easy reach.
