    “Absolutely Fabulous”

    We have family nearby and wanted to explore the area as well as visit and see them ...

    We have family nearby and wanted to explore the area as well as visit and see them. Without doubt, Vale Barn was the best equipped cottage we have ever had and is immaculately clean and well set up. Lucy, the owner, could not have been more helpful and there were some welcoming goodies. The barn is warm and comfortable and we had absolute confidence in the standards of cleanliness, especially under Covid circumstances. Beds were very comfortable and all furnishings were of a high standard. We were 6 for one night and then 2 for the remainder. It was more than big enough and equipped for 6 and the 2 of us did not feel like we were rattling around. Despite the railway line being close, the walls are so thick that it did not disturb us at all. We had been made aware of the approach down the steep slope and anyone with significant mobility issues should bear this in mind. The setting is just lovely and the outlook is very pretty. The walk into Dronfield centre is slightly uphill but within easy reach, as is the local supermarket. If you want to visit Dronfield or the surrounding areas, like Chatsworth and Bakewell and have a comfortable "home away from home" to return to, don't hesitate to book this charming barn.

The property

Vale Barn is a fantastic, detached barn conversion in the centre of Dronfield in Derbyshire.

The cottage cleverly combines the original fabric of the building with 21st century living, with a galleried landing which is complemented by the beautiful feature beams in the bedrooms.

With a comfortable double and twin room, the cottage provides flexible sleeping arrangements, with the use of a sofa bed in the sitting room.

The double bedroom has an en-suite shower room, there is a family bathroom and a ground floor basin and WC for extra convenience.

The spacious sitting room has an upright piano and is a fantastic space for everyone to gather together and plan the next day’s activities.

Vale Barn was once the carriage house to Vale House which was home to a family of substance who patented malleable iron.

Dronfield lies midway between the vibrant city of Sheffield and the historic market town of Chesterfield, on the outskirts of The Peak District.

Historically, the town has great significance and the Grade I listed Church of St John the Baptist is testament to this as it has stood at the centre of this community since the 12th century.

You will find all the local amenities you require in Dronfield, including The Green Dragon pub which is believed to have been established in 1547.

The Peak District’s varied and breathtaking landscapes are among the most beautiful in Britain.

There are activities available to keep you busy whenever you stay, with walks on the moors, cycle routes, country fairs in summer, traditional markets and a vast choice of stately homes to visit.

This cottage is in an ideal location and with so much to see and do in the area you will see yourselves coming back again and again!

About the location


Chesterfield 6 miles; Sheffield 7 miles.

Dronfield is a Derbyshire market town with a history dating back to before the 1086 Domesday Book, and has a number of 12th century buildings which are still in existence. The town has a wide range of shops, pubs, restaurants and also a modern sports centre, and is surrounded by wonderful Peak District countryside where the walks are asking to be explored. Dronfield is situated between the Peak District National Park and the city of Sheffield while close by is the historic town of Chesterfield which is most notable for its famous crooked spire of St Mary and All Saints Church. The impressive Damflask, Agden, Dale Dike and Ladybower dams make for an interesting afternoon's ramble, while the attractive village of Hathersage (thought to be the inspiration for Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre) is also within easy reach and is home to a selection of shops, pubs and inviting eateries, plus an outdoor lido. There are many stately homes to visit including Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall, whilst the historic and ever popular town of Bakewell and the rest of the Peak District, are within a short drive.
