    “Perfect peaceful getaway”

    We were the first customers to stay in one of these 3 converted barns as England began coming out of covid-19 restrictions, on 12 April. We booked to stay in Herdwick's Barn, which is a beautifully converted barn with a mezzanine level housing the bedroom. The location, in Ramshorn, is perfectly secluded and just south of the Peak District, and views are wonderful, yet it's a mere 5 minute drive from the adrenaline-packed Alton Towers or some lovely quaint pubs and restaurants. Sue is your host ...

Sue is your host and a very lovely, professional lady. The barn was spotlessly clean with ample space. The stone walls sit perfectly with the large slate flooring and modern touches, never losing its cottage feel. With underfloor heating, lounge area with tv, dining area, fully fitted kitchen, stairs up to the bedroom, and a large terrace with furniture, you want for nothing. There is an excellent Indian restaurant that delivers should you fancy a break from cooking, and likewise a pizzeria. Parking is ample and free. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again and value for money was excellent.

Ramsor Farm Holiday Cottages

These three delightful, adjoining red sandstone barn conversions, are situated on the fringe of the small country community of Ramshorn, on the edge of the glorious Peak District, five miles from Ashbourne. Beautifully converted with a keen eye for quality, they both offer open plan living areas across the ground floor, with cosy double beds tucked away on the mezzanine floor above. From the oak doors with polished pewter handles, to the slate flooring and exposed stone walls, they exude charm and character, with a touch of luxury from the underfloor heating downstairs. Warm and welcoming, they have modern kitchens and contemporary shower rooms, with comfortable beds and quality bedding ensuring a good night's sleep. Outside the properties are small, enclosed private courtyards, a sheltered spot to sit and relax with a glass of wine after an enjoyable day exploring the vicinity. Walkers and cyclists will be eager to sample the nearby Tissington Trail and High Peak Trail, or for an easier afternoon, try pretty Ilam Village with its stately home and village walks. The popular historic market town of Ashbourne offers independent shops, restaurants and tea rooms and is known for quality antique shops, a pleasant way to spend an afternoon browsing. For thrills and excitement, Alton Towers Theme Park lies two miles away, but the Consall Valley Steam Railway and Foxfield Railway are both within easy reach and for a day with a difference, visit Peak Wildlife Park. Three endearing properties providing a good base from which to explore or simply relax and unwind.
