  • Overall very good Cottage with modern facilities while maintaining the ambience of the farm.

    “It had all the requirements and was very clean and attention was paid to detail. The kids had great fun with the animals and was able to feed the Alcapas. Rob was amazing and very helpful as a host. There was very good communication and directions were very clear.”

The property

Ambergate 1.1 miles.

Settled in the village of Nether Heage just north of Belper in the Derbyshire countryside, Walnut Barn has been beautifully transformed from nothing more than ruins into this wonderful detached barn conversion next door to the owner's home.

Offering contemporary and stylish accommodation for six guests within traditional, rustic walls, Walnut Barn is perfect for a group seeking to get to know the area and the Peak District.

Enter into the open-plan living space, with white painted exposed stone walls, feature lighting and underfloor heating adding to the welcoming feel of the property, relax on the sofas before the Smart TV after coming back from a day out.

Come together around the rustic bench dining table and chairs for tasty meals, cooked up in the sleek fitted kitchen, with everything you need here and in the utility room next door.

Tuck the children into bed at the end of a busy day in the lovely ground-floor bunk room, with a window looking out to the alpaca field, along with a shower room on the ground floor too.

Take the stairs up to the first floor to find two lovely double bedrooms, each with pretty accents of a luscious green, and served by a second shower room.

Soak up your tranquil surroundings in your enclosed garden area, looking out over the gorgeous field home to alpacas, chickens and ducks, with your own outdoor furniture to unwind on and enjoy alfresco dining in warmer months.

Just a short stroll down the road is the local pub, The Spanker Inn, serving delicious pub grub and drinks, while a little further walk will bring you to Heage Windmill.

The nearby village of Ambergate has the nearest shops, while the historic town of Belper is well worth a visit, not only for its shops and eateries, but for the rich heritage it holds.

Head to Strutt's North Mill Museum housed in a former cotton mill with guides in full costume, it'll be like going back in time, afterwards taking a turn around the scenic Belper River Gardens.

For those feeling adventurous, head to Carsington Water for a number of fun activities, whether hiring bikes to ride around the lake, simply walking alongside, or taking to the water for a number of watersports available here including paddle-boarding and kayaking.

Alton Towers is within driving distance, around 45 minutes away, perfect those adrenaline junkies, while the Heights of Abraham in Matlock Bath isn't for the faint hearted who don't like heights, but the views are surely worth the cable car journey up.

Enjoy visiting the likes of Haddon Hall, the National Trust's Kedleston Hall and Hadwick Hall and the grand Chatsworth House, each providing their own historical insights and amazing examples of old architecture.

The Crich Tramway Village is a a charming attraction to enjoy with your family, while Gulliver's Kingdom is a great way for rewarding the children with a fun-filled day out!

Venture into the Peak District for plenty of walks and outdoor activities, with a host of excellent routes available to follow, and those off the beaten track too!

Enjoy a memorable stay to Derbyshire from Walnut Barn.
