    “I think they've got a real gem here, absolutely loved it.”

    Just come back from a most wonderful stay at Moorhay Barn located just on the edge of the peak district where we was able to go on many countryside walks, we also managed to visit Chatsworth house which was lovely and basically on the doorstep. The Barn itself was incredible, the buildings open plan but cottage feel and oak beams was simply fantastic. It had an open fire that we used every night which created such a ambience along with all the quirks of the the cottage, they had a good selection of DVDs there to watch too which i thought was such a nice gesture, we watched 2 of them during our stay. There was enough wood for the first nights fuel but then we had to pick some up for the other nights but we thought this would be the case as we've stayed at many cottages which all seem to do the same. Whilst there i struggled to operate the shower, so I called for the owner via the phone number i acquired when booking on. He replied instantly and was round to show me how to work it before i put the phone down. The owner was a young lad around his late 20s i'd guess and was always around and ready to help if you needed anything. If I had to make any complaint it would be that the track to the farm was a little bumpy, but I'm being picky there for the sake of a balanced review, it was no more bumpy than a lot of roads I've been on and is obviously adequate for the many campers and residents on the property, it didn't bother my stay and i will definitely be returning!

The property

Chesterfield 5.2 miles.

Nestled amidst a working farm setting on the edge of the rolling countryside of the Peak District National Park, is the characterful, stone-built, Moorhay Barn.

This heart-warming retreat is perfect for a couple seeking an action-packed getaway with a vast array of activities on offer within the surrounding area, or for a couple looking to explore the delights of the nearby towns, villages and historical landmarks.

Push open the impressive front door to be welcomed into a spacious open-plan living room, where the characterful exposed beams frame the room which houses everything you and your loved one could need during a week-long break to the countryside setting.

The kitchen comes with all the essentials to cater your own delicious evening meals, whilst the sitting area houses a plush L-shape sofa, perfect for cosying up in front of the woodburning stove and tuning into the TV.

The character of the cottage is continued into the double bedroom, where you will find a well-presented bed, exposed beams and a couple of steps lead up to a small mezzanine-style sitting area, where you can look forward to unwinding with a good book in hand.

To the outside find a small garden area, complete with an artificial lawn and seating, so that you and your loved one can soak up the sun whilst admiring the surroundings.

If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic base, a short walk will bring you to a local pub serving food, whilst the nearby town of Chesterfield offers a larger selection of pubs and restaurants, as well as a choice of shops for picking up the essentials.

Whilst visiting the town, spend a moment or two within Queens Park to enjoy a leisurely stroll around the lake and the summer bandstand, or spend some time at the museum and theatre.

Brush up on the local history by venturing to the Elizabethan Hardwick Hall with its picturesque gardens or spend time at 17th Century mansion of Bolsover Castle.

Alternatively, the Peak District offers a magnitude of walks and cycling for those feeling active.

Moorhay Barn is a splendid retreat to this part of the country.

About the location

CHESTERFIELD

Matlock 10 miles; Bakewell 13 miles.

The historic market town of Chesterfield acts as the gateway to the Peak District, and has much to offer visitors. The town is famous for its 14th Century church with "Crooked Spire", twisting curiously from its true centre, while the frequent bustling market days are ideal for exploring the many different specialist shops and stalls which line the old Market Hall and charming Shambles beyond. The town also boasts Queens Park, with its lake, walks and summer bandstand, as well as a museum and theatre. Nearby, the Elizabethan Hardwick Hall is still impressive today, with its 6 grand towers elaborately monogramed with Bess of Hardwick’s initials, overlooking the superb gardens and walled courtyards of the grounds. Also popular is the semi-ruined 17th Century mansion of Bolsover Castle, set high on a wooded hilltop, looking west towards the heights of the Peak District. Chesterfield has a host of other attractions within easy reach, such as Chatsworth and Haddon Hall, the amenities of Matlock and Bakewell, or the opera at Buxton. An interesting base for a varied break.
