We have just had a long weekend break here and loved it. The location of the barn in the centre of the village, with the benefit of off road parking is great - only a couple of minutes walk to the Co-op, or one of the three local pubs, as well as other amenities (pharmacy, tea shops, post office, restaurants to name a few!), and a fabulous walk across the fields and up onto the Monsal Trail. We got a great welcome from Chloe along with instructions as to where everything was and how it all worked. Lots of lovely touches such as a welcome pack of wine, chocolate, doggie treats and a few other essentials, and the organic toiletries were especially welcome (what were they called Chloe and where can you buy them?). For me, arriving on the Friday afternoon, chilled to the core after a walk in Dovedale, to an already warm barn was just fabulous. A wonderful retreat and we'll definitely return. Thank you x

The property is delightful, furnished to a very high standard and absolutely spotless. We used the local take away Indian and eat at one of the local pubs - all the food was great and all within minutes of the property. The train station was only five minutes away with regular trains into the centre of Manchester. The hosts were very helpful and approachable and thought of everything. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
