  • "Excellent location for our weekend, our group was adults which I believe is best for this property not toddler's."

    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

  • "The barn is absolutely beautiful!"

    The beds were very comfy and there is everything you need for a self catering break away in the kitchen , we had a slight issue with heating and hot water but we got in touch with the owner and she very quickly sorted the problem out. It’s in a great location , not far from Buxton or bakewell. Would definitely stay again!

  • "We are a family of 6 adults and we had a wonderful time in this cosy spacious and well appointed property."

    Plenty of room and the big table in the kitchen made for fun family meals. The walks from the front door kept us busy for a week, beautiful countryside and lovely to get home to this lovely house.

  • "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!

The property

Tideswell 1.8 miles.

Nestled in the tiny hamlet of Miller’s Dale, close to the village of Tideswell in the heart of the Peak District National Park is this fabulous barn conversion built in 1760, The Barn.

Throughout this lovely dwelling expect to find quality furnishings and character features, creating a charming setting to relax in after a day of adventure.

Set in a reverse level layout, with the living areas and kitchen upstairs, The Barn provides much to look forward to.

Step inside and follow the flagstone flooring to the first of the bedrooms, comprising of two double bedrooms, both with TVs, ample storage and lush en-suite bathrooms with a roll-top bath in each.

Make your way upstairs to reach the sitting room, where two sofas sit before the TV, with a high vaulted ceiling and exposed beams adding character to the room.

Relax here or head into the kitchen/diner to gather round the dining table for a family board game brought from home before you set the table for dinner.

The farmhouse style kitchen comes well-equipped with all you could need, dominated by the AGA range cooker with 5-ring gas hob and complimented by lovely fixtures such as the Belfast sink and wooden units.

Adjacent lies a utility room, home to a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine and other amenities.

Continue through to the final bedroom, hosting a double bed with plenty of space, served by a contemporary shower room.

The garden is split over two levels and offers a tranquil spot for relaxing; at the lower level lies an artificial area with patio furniture whilst the upper is gravelled with further seating.

Get to know your surroundings further by venturing along the River Wye, discovering quaint scenery along the way, before refuelling at the Anglers Rest, an 18th century country pub serving hearty comfort food and real ales.

Venture to nearby Tideswell, one of the most ancient settlements in the central Peak District, home to some good pubs, fine local eateries, individual curiosity shops and a magnificent 14th century church.

Scenic walking surrounds the village, with the Tideswell Dale Nature Reserve and Deep Dale Nature Reserve worth exploring, plus plenty of larger peaks to challenge yourself on including Eldon Hill, Rushup Edge and Mondal Head.

Eight miles away lies the charming town of Bakewell, famed for its sweet treat shops as well as The Old House, a tudor house from Henry VII’s reign now turned into a museum showcasing historical artefacts.

Discover the delights of the Peak District from this character home, The Barn.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

The village of Tideswell stands in the heart of the Peak District National Park. Famous for its fine church dedicated to St John the Baptist, known as "The Cathedral of the Peak", the village is also noted for its well dressing and carnival wakes. There is excellent walking with rugged peaks to the north, gentle hills and dales to the south and Millers Dale just outside the village. Mam Tor and Castleton are only a few miles away and the popular Spa town of Buxton is within a 15 minute drive. Tideswell has many fine country inns, a chemist, butchers, bakers and much more including a convenient supermarket open daily until 10pm. The pretty little market town of Bakewell is also just a short drive away and well worth a visit.
