    The barn is positioned at the side of the working farm in a private position. It has superb views from the windows. Inside it is beautifully decorated with luxury touches such as White Company bedding on a comfortable double bed. The decor is rustic and comforting. Even though we arrived in snow ( which made everywhere look very pretty), we were warm with underfloor heating and an efficient wood burner. I have never had such a generous amount of provisions left us- coffee,tea,milk,bread,eggs,butter,cheese, tomatoes,a whole tin of chocolate biscuits as well as a bottle of Prosecco!!! We were well looked after by the owner too who answered any questions we had. There is a lovely pub a short distance away you can walk to, although we drove due to the snow. Buxton is only about 4 miles away. There are some interesting gift and boutique type shops within the old swimming baths that have been converted. ( You can still see the tiles on the walls and the glass ceilings) We explored the area easily taking in Bakewell and spectacular Chatsworth. A wonderful romantic place to escape to and recharge your batteries!

The property

This beautiful, stone, barn conversion enjoys stunning, uninterrupted countryside views, set in the grounds of a working dairy farm 1400ft above sea level, and situated in the heart of rural Derbyshire, lying above the village of Chelmorton to the west and the historic village of Taddington to the east.

This delightful cottage is an ideal romantic getaway for a couple wishing to explore the glorious Peak District.

Beautifully appointed throughout, the accommodation is all on the ground floor.

This lovingly restored conversion features flagged floors and exposed roof beams combined with natural wood furniture, creating a cosy welcoming ambience with contemporary style soft furnishings.

The cottage offers a tastefully decorated bedroom and a stylish bathroom with power shower.

Enjoy the open plan living space with a designer kitchen, dining area and comfortable sofa where you can snuggle up together and marvel the glorious views from the full length window - you may even get the resident sheep looking in to say hello!

Outside, the patio provides a great spot to sit out with a glass of what you fancy and enjoy panoramic views of the stunning rolling countryside.

This is the perfect place to spend some quiet time, however, if you wish to pull on your walking boots, there are extensive walks with the Limestone Way on the doorstep.

There is a stable and secure bike storage, so you are very well catered for whatever you ride.

The owner runs dry-stone walling courses, so you could give it a try and to stay during lambing season is a sheer joy.

Take a short drive to discover the spa town of Buxton, market town of Bakewell and the historic Chatsworth House, as well as many other attractions the Peak District National Park has to offer.

This lovely cottage is the ideal base to relax at any time of the year.
