The property

Nestled on a working dairy farm on the fringes of the beautiful Peak District National Park, where you have a series of pastimes such as walking and cycling to indulge, is this well-appointed barn conversion.

The Barn offers large families and groups of friends the chance to escape to the country and find a relaxing base to return to, after trying out all the outdoor activities this fascinating region has to offer.

With underfloor heating throughout the ground level and a woodburning stove adding additional warmth to the sitting room, this cosy dwelling is just what you need to unwind into your evening.

The kitchen is fully equipped with many helpful appliances to hand, as well as a breakfast island and a large dining area, elevated by the exposed ceiling beams, adding character to the space.

The ground floor is also well-appointed for those less able on their feet, with a double and single room served by the family bathroom, where you can indulge in a hot shower on return from a walk.

You can find yourself a quiet corner somewhere and enjoy a good book with a hot beverage and there is also a study/desk space upstairs on the landing, for anyone who wants to bring their laptop and get a bit of work done while they are away.

Further along the corridor is a children's play area, with a selection of games to keep them entertained for hours.

Retire to one of the well-presented bedrooms to catch your rest, then wake up to a refreshing shower each morning, with a choice of bathrooms ensuring you don't have to queue.

To the exterior of this fabulous abode are two seating areas within an enclosed garden, one accessed via the sitting room, where you can sit out with a drink and soak up a crisp afternoon.

Alternatively, spend an evening in the games room, which is housed within an external building in the garden, where you can get competitive over the table football or a round Head into Wirksworth for a selection of independent shops, local pubs and places to eat, stroll through its maze of ancient 'ginnels' or 'jitties' and find yourself at the Heritage Centre, which houses the town's museum collections.

You can also head out to Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House to step back in time and delve into a world of history, and truly make the most of this fabulous location near the Peak District.

The Barn at Lane Head Farm offers something for everyone to enjoy!

About the location


Matlock 6 miles.

Wirksworth is a small, charming market town situated just a few miles from Matlock, on the edge of The Peak District. Wirksworth is full of character with many buildings of architectural interest, including its magnificent parish church. Independent shops sit alongside the deli, butchers and bakers with a strong local food ethic. Visitors will enjoy exploring the ancient “jitties” and courtyards of the Puzzle Gardens, along with the Heritage Centre and the delightful surrounding countryside including nearby Carsington Water, Black Rocks and the High Peak Trail. Rock climbing and cycling can be enjoyed here at every level, and there is fantastic walking all around. Well Dressing is unique to Derbyshire, and Wirksworth combines this tradition with a lively carnival in May. There is also an annual Arts festival with an amazing Art & Architecture Trail in September, showcasing contemporary art and international performers of every kind. With an art deco independent cinema and a range of places to eat there is plenty to entertain. The town offers a leisure centre with a climbing wall and a small trainer swimming pool, The Eco Centre, The National Stone Centre and the Mount Cook Adventure Centre. The weekly market and monthly farmers' market provide local produce and crafts. Beautiful Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are within easy reach, as well as Matlock Bath, with its spectacular cable car, the heritage Ecclesbourne Valley Railway and Gulliver's Kingdom. Only two miles away, the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site in Cromford is not to be missed. In all, Wirksworth is a great location for a varied holiday.
