    “The Barn was spacious and comfortable.”

    The bed linen was of very good quality and the welcome milk, tea/coffee etc appreciated. However the milk had been put in the fridge/freezer, which had been left off. This was particularly annoying, as when I arrived, and wanted to put some frozen food in the freezer, the drawers were full of water. There was ample parking space. ...

    The bed linen was of very good quality and the welcome milk, tea/coffee etc appreciated. However the milk had been put in the fridge/freezer, which had been left off. This was particularly annoying, as when I arrived, and wanted to put some frozen food in the freezer, the drawers were full of water. There was ample parking space. Whilst there we had heavy rain, resulting in a leaking window and doorway in the lounge - I left a note explaining this, as it appears to be causing damage to the plaster board and the furniture it drips on. I last booked this cottage four years ago, and felt that standards had slipped; the frying pan needs replacing, the first aid kit was useless, the sofa needs the covers cleaning, at least, the mat in the hall is a trip hazard, a shelf for shower gel etc would be useful in the down stairs shower, and more cutlery is needed. I appreciate that holiday cottages can get almost continual use, and that some people are very careless when it's not their own property, but I feel there has been a lack of time and money spent on this complex of cottages, and that furniture, curtains and implements need updating - after all, I wouldn't expect items such as these to wear for ever in my own home. The place looked a little tired and run-down, which is a pity, as it could be so good.

Wetton Barns, Chatsworth Estate

Wetton Barns are at the most westerly extent of the Chatsworth Estate, and are situated in the heart of the pretty stone-built village of Wetton, a 40-minute drive from the stately Chatsworth House, in the White Peak countryside. These cottages are situated around a pretty courtyard, with some views of the Derbyshire/Staffordshire countryside. These barns have been beautifully converted from three traditional stone barns into six wonderful cottages, and now provide comfortable and cosy accommodation. Incorporating woodburners to relax in front of after a day of exploration, beams and some vaulted ceilings, the cottages have sympathetically retained some of the character of these beautiful barn conversions. These lovely cottages offer off road parking, pretty shared gardens and a barbecue area for all the properties to enjoy those sunny Peak District evenings. Wetton is ideal for exploring the local countryside areas of the Dove and Manifold valleys, taking advantage of the beautiful walks and cycle trails on offer. Thors Cave is perfect for exploration and offers superb views of the valleys below, while the picture-perfect village of Hartington is just 5 miles away and has a range of shops and eateries. Alton Towers is less than half an hour's drive away from these cottages, making them a great base for the whole family.

About the location

WETTON

Ashbourne 8 miles.

The tranquil, stone-built village of Wetton is ideally situated in an elevated position at the most westerly extent of the Chatsworth estate, above the valleys of Manifold and Dove, in the beautiful White Peak countryside of the Peak District National Park. Located off the beaten track, the village boasts a fine old inn and a 14th century church, with an external staircase to its belfry. The spectacular Thors cave, rising 360ft above the river Manifold with its 60ft entrance, has over the years yielded ancient bones and artefacts dating back to 600 BC, whilst the river itself provides excellent walks and cycling opportunities through wonderful rural scenery. The nearby, charming village of Alstonefield, situated on a limestone plateau 900 feet above sea level, has won the Best Kept Village Award ten times and is home to Hope House Costume Museum and Restoration Workshop as well as the excellent The George pub, enjoyed by visitors from near and far. Follow the Manifold Trail along the route of the old Leek to Manifold Light Railway, or visit the market town of Ashbourne with its narrow cobbled alleys littered with Georgian architecture, fine restaurants and antiques shops. A wonderful location for a relaxing break, at any time of year.
