This is a delightful little semi-detached barn conversion, on the owners’ working livestock farm on the edge of the very pretty Peak District village of Wetton.
On arrival, enter into the practical kitchen, complete with a dining table for enjoying a tasty evening meal.
Two steps down from the kitchen is a cosy sitting room, with stone windowsills and a full-length window looking out over the village, while completing this welcoming room is a warming woodburner-effect electric fire.
The staircase leads directly from the sitting room, arriving firstly at the cosy twin bedroom.
Then, take another three steps to the shower room and double bedroom to the left, again with a window for gazing out over the village.
There is plenty of parking available and a front courtyard with a bench makes a lovely spot for a coffee in the sun.
Wetton itself is a lovely little village, with a good pub serving food.
From Wetton, there are many varied things to explore, starting with a network of footpaths and the Dove and Manifold Valleys, which also have great cycle routes.
Thor’s Cave offers an exciting opportunity for exploration and also has amazing views from the prow.
The village of Hartington is just five miles away, with a traditional village feel and a range of shops and places to eat.
Alton Towers is also less than half an hour's drive away, making Stable Barn just the place to enjoy the wide choice of different attractions the Peak District has on offer!
About the location
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.
