  • "A lovely very comfortable cottage."

    Clean and warm and well equipped. Fabulous roomy bedrooms and bathrooms, loads of hot water. Very comfortable for 6 adults and a baby. The only negative is the lack of recycling facilities at the cottage and the info in the file was incorrect (There are no recycling bins at Morrisons!).

    Just a few things that could have made the stay more enjoyable- the double beds were quite small f

  • "Lovely accommodation."

    Bigger than I had expected and comfy beds. Very grateful for the use of the garage for our bikes as quite a wet week. We enjoyed cycling on the Monsal Trail and walks both up and down river. As well as trips to Eyam, Mam Tor & Chatsworth. The only thing missing, I felt, was a washing line. I'd brought a camping one and there is an airer so we made do, but I'm sure there's space for a retractable line or folding rotary one. Many thanks

  • "It’s a lovely property which was let down by some issues."

    Plus it’s not really practical for bigger families. Issues: heating wasn’t turned on when we arrived. There was no hot water for showers in the evening or the following morning. When we asked for the heating to be turned up this was then fixed for the rest of the stay. Maintenance had missed replacing a smoke alarm battery and this went off all night on our last night. Some of the pans and utensils were very tired. We left some out for replacement. Practicality- there is only one (difficult) parking space. We were told to park in the nearby pay and display public car park, but this doesn’t allow overnight parking! The walk to the nearest pub (which is more than the 0.1 miles stated) is down a dangerous busy road with no pavement in places.

  • "The Barn is a beautiful traditional property full of character in the lovely Miller’s Dale."

    Each room is cosy, warm and welcoming. Beds are very comfortable. Good quality bed linen and towels. Kitchen is well stocked for those wishing to self cater. Short walk to a traditional country pub which served good value meals for all the family. Owner provided torches for the walk home after dark which was a thoughtful extra. Directions were thorough making it easy to find the Barn. Short drive to many beautiful places within the peaks making it a great base. We enjoyed our stay & are looking forward to our next visit! Thank you

  • "The property is in a good location for walking and there is a friendly pub a short distance away."

    However, although the pub is close enough to walk to, it is potentially dangerous to do this in the dark due to lack of pavements and traffic. Parking at the Barn is very difficult. The driveway is too small to manouvere a car when other vehicles are parked - which was very often during our stay. It is also steeply sloping which adds to the problem. The property is generaly well appointed although the kitchen and fittings/appliances are quite old/tired. There is a steep stone staircase which would be difficult/dangerous for anyone with mobility problems or small children. We had problems with the heating system during our stay. Only some of the radiators were functioning. These were reported to the owner but were not rectified during our stay.

    Thank you for staying with us at The Barn. The difficulties with lighting on the walk to the local pub are highlighted in our welcome pack and torches are provided for those who wish to use them, as per the listing parking is provided as standard for one vehicle, for those who require more space, this can often be accommodated by prior arrangement. The appliances and facilities in the kitchen are new, clean and well maintained. The property has stone steps internally, in keeping with the historic nature of it. These can be seen on the photographs of the internal layout. A stair gate has been fitted to the top for safety. Finally, a problem with the radiators was reported. Our maintenance person attended the same day. No further complaints were made nor have been since. We are proud of the Barn and work hard to keep it nice for people using it. Property Owner

    Everything we needed Anne was helpful on our information requests. We will be booking again. The driveway was a bit of a challenge and If more than one car need to ask I'd you can park in another location. Loved the cottage thank you

  • "Beautiful barn in a lovely location our only problems were with no signal on TVs we believe this is being fixed but would have liked to have been informed before arrival,although we had WiFi due to the position of the area it dropped out often and there is also no phone signal but WiFi calls are possible."

    Having said that it did not stop us enjoying our stay at the barn and we would recommend it to our families and friends!
