  • "We were a large family group, the accommodation was fantastic, plenty of room, seating areas were very comfortable."

    Bedrooms were spacious, beds comfortable. The kitchen area was very well equipped for large numbers, huge fridge, cooking range and plenty of pots, pans, crockery and utensils. The TV could be a bit bigger, especially as we were all watching the football.

    Thankyou for your lovely comments. We are so pleased you had a great stay with us and the property and facilities met all of your expectations. We look forward to seeing you all again next year, or sooner. Kind regards. Property Owner

  • "Thank you for a lovely stay at Bottomhouse Barn."

    We stayed for my friend’s hen weekend, as a group of 13. We were all comfortable, and enjoyed the facilities on offer - especially the hot tub! The owner was available for any questions or queries and was really helpful. We enjoyed paddle boarding on Tittesworth reservoir and lunch at The Lazy Trout. The surrounding countryside is beautiful with lots of walks nearby.

    The stairs are too small for carrying our bags to upstairs. Not safe for elderly people to go upstairs.Good for youngsters and group.

    Henry came over to show us where everything was and how to use the appliances, he also answered any queries before arrival. There is plenty of information in the barn regarding walks, pubs and general information. The barn was super comfortable, super clean and cosy. The beds were very comfortable. It was extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The views were lovely from the kitchen, plenty of seating and with a lawn for games. Peaceful location, would highly recommend for a large party.

    House is in a lovely area with great views. Very spacious area for alot of cars to park. House layout is very good. All amenities thought of in the kitchen, lots of utensils, cleaning products etc. The bedrooms are very spacious and work well with the layout. 2 bathrooms upstairs and one downstairs work well. The hot tub was lovely and sitting in there with the view was perfect. Only downside we found is there is no wi-fi there but signal is fine. The owners were brilliant in answering any questions beforehand and giving recommendations of restaurants nearby and also showing us around when we got there. Would definately recommend and stay here again.

    The barn is absolutely stunning and the pictures definitely don’t do it justice, Henry was very welcoming and gave me guide on how everything worked. Lots of information in the barn about local places to visit etc, For anyone thinking of visiting definitely follow the instructions on the check in email rather than the sat nav as it is tucked away nicely. The barn was well equipped with towels, tea towels and the basics, washing up liquid etc (no sweeping brush which would be a handy thing to add) overall a brilliant weekend and definitely will be returning to Bottom House Barn.

  • "Everything was really comfortable and we had a great stay."

    The owners were on hand for any concerns & the property was really well equipped. The only issue that we had was that due to 2 power cuts during our stay the hot tub lost temperature & took time to heat back up & we didn't get to use it as much as we wanted - we weren't offered a partial refund on this facility which was very expensive to hire for a weekend.

    Dear Julie, Thankyou for your lovely comments. We were pleased to note that you all had a great weekend break and loved the cottage. Storm Arwen was indeed challenging and an early white Christmas was unexpected. Staff are always available 24 hours a day to contact should you have any difficulties using the facilities.

  • "Bottom house barn that we visit was wonderful."

    It was in a stunning location with great views and the barn owner was very welcoming and thorough with information on checking in. The barn was comfortable and warm (on a pretty chilli weekend) and the hot tub had great views when relaxing. However unfortunately I cannot say that my experience in using Sykes was positive this booking was as a result of a previous booking being messed up due to some vouchers however again they failed to tell us vital information again including additional costs to use the hot tub and a good house keeping bond and put this down to assuming that customers read all details on line even though we booked over the phone. I cannot say I will be in a rush to book with them again.

    Many thanks for your lovely feedback regarding the property. I can see from our records that we have now spoken to you regarding the Sykes error that was made when you booked over the phone. We are sorry for this human error and I can see that you have accepted a gesture of compensation for this. I do hope that you will book with Sykes again in the future. Property Owner

We went to Wild Park Derbyshire on the Saturday and did the laser adventure, only 20 minutes away and really great fun! Alton Towers is also only 6 miles away so a great base for exploring and adventure!! Would highly recommend Bottomhouse Barn for groups, really great find, thank you.

    15 of us stayed over and a few more visited during the day and there was plenty of room. It’s a lot bigger than it looks on the photos, very spacious and lovely outdoor space with large seating area inside and out, lovely new hot tub, shame we were unlucky with the weather as we would have definitely made use of this space outside and the hot tub otherwise ... There is everything you need; dishwasher, large fridge freezer, washing machine, drinks fridge. Plenty of crockery and utensils and they even left us some washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets, tea towels and cloths. Plenty of toilet roll and towels provided.

    The Barn is fabulous with everything you could wish for inside to make your stay enjoyable. The one thing I would would suggest to make it whole experience any better is the Hot Tub outside could do with a Gazebo of some kind to cover it in case it rains when you're outside, also one side enclosed to give you some privacy when it's dark.

    We didn't realise how open plan it was from the pictures online so it was an added bonus when we arrived, and it suited what we had planned perfectly bringing everyone together in one big space. Mr Cooper was very welcoming and knowledgeable/informative of the surrounding area, and I received my house keeping deposit as scheduled. The only downside was that there was no Wi-Fi, and the TV signal wasn't great so we struggled to play any music. I will definitely be recommending this cottage to anyone looking for a place to stay.
