  • "An excellent holiday cottage with every facility you would need."

    The cottage is in an isolated position, but if it’s peace and quietness you want it’s perfect. WiFi and phone signal is poor, but that was no problem for us.

  • "Throughtly enjoyed our stay at Little Owl Barn."

    Really nicely presented cottage with all you'd want for your stay. Good kitchen with all you need provided. Really liked the quality cheese and biscuits treat from the owners. Living space nice size so was the bedroom and teh bed was very confortable. Loved the roll-top bath. We had a very minor issue with the heating but Garry came round and sorted it very quickly. The communication from Claire was excellent and although the weather wasn't great that weekend it was a good place just to relax. Would highly recommend this accomodation

  • "Your photo of the cottage is misleading as it is joined to the main farmhouse."

    A name at the entrance to the farm drive would have been helpful. Satnav tells you to park the car and walk!

    What a lovely location, only downside was the lack of local information that would have helped when finding places to eat and visit

  • "What a fabulous cottage, a real little gem."

    It was so peaceful surrounded by beautiful countryside, whilst amenities are not on your doorstep we found the tranquility of the setting relaxing and idyllic. The walks we found took us through some beautiful scenic countryside and quaint villages. We will most definitely be booking to stay again.

  • "The hosts were warm and friendly but didn't intrude on your stay."

    The cottage was beautiful, comfortable, and had everything you needed. We came away from our visit feeling relaxed and refreshed. The only down side, and it was only a small one was there wasn't a pub within walking distance. We would definitely recommend staying at the little owl barn and it will be somewhere we'd definitely stay again, we didn't want to come home.

    The cottage had everything you could need and was very cosy! Excellent bath big was perfect for after a chilly walk. The added touch of homemade cheese and oatcakes apon arrival was a lovely gesture. We would definitely come back and recommend to others!

  • "We stayed here for a week in September 2018."

    On arrival we were greeted by the owner who lives in the Farm House next door. The cottage is really lovely and has everything you want for a home from home (apart from mobile reception and wifi!) It is in a beautiful location and is perfect for sightseeing in this area. We highly recommend The Little Owl Barn.

  • "Stayed at the cottage for a week."

    Met by the owner on arrival who showed us around the property, the welcome pack included cheese made by the family who sell it locally. Delicious. Although the property is attached to the owners house they are very unobtrusive and we only saw them on arrival and when we were leaving.The cottage itself was very comfortable and well equipped with t.v, DVD player and games. We didn’t need them as the weather was brilliant. First time in the Peak District and Claire the owner very helpful on tips for visits. Would certainly return.

  • "We enjoyed our week in this peaceful little cottage."

    The owners have thought of every comfort and it was very clean and welcoming. We sadly didn't get any decent weather to enjoy the beautiful countryside but it is somewhere we will return to and give another go. Buxton is a nice little town and Longnor was lovely to stroll through. Some nice little pubs close by where the food was good and the welcome freindly. I recommend the Pack Horse, scrummy food. I guess WIFI would have been nice but we did know this before we went and to be fair the cottage is in a very secluded area, which is why we chose it. Thank you for sharing your lovely quiet retreat with us. Also the cheese was lovely!!

The property

This beautiful detached barn conversion is situated on a non-working farm in the pretty countryside, close to the village of Longnor in the Peak District National Park.

With its elevated position, this cottage boasts stunning views of the surrounding countryside, providing an ideal romantic retreat for couples seeking to get away from it all.

This delightful cottage features original exposed beams with contemporary styled décor.

The comfortable first floor double bedroom is tastefully decorated and the modern first floor bathroom is beautifully designed with wood panelling and a period roll-top bath.

The spacious ground floor living area features a well-equipped kitchen/diner and a cosy sitting room.

Outside is a decked area with furniture, creating the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the tranquil setting after a busy day of outdoor activities.

You can also try a little bird spotting from the abundant wildlife this rural landscape has to offer.

The owners produce an award-winning Stilton, so there’s sure to be a treat waiting for you!

The bustling village of Longnor is just 2 miles away from your Peak District cottage, offering a cobbled market place and an array of shops and real ale pubs, whilst a little further away is the pretty village of Hartington set around a quaint duck pond with some very interesting shops and inns for you to explore.

Longnor nestles between the Dove and Manifold valleys and provides an excellent starting point for many walks, whether it’s a ramble by the river or for a more challenging walk, there are some serious upland treks.

Also, the Tissington Trail is a great cycle route with stunning scenery.

The spa town of Buxton and the market town of Bakewell are within easy reach, so there’s plenty to see and do from this romantic cottage whenever you choose to go.
