Needed a break away from the stress of working in a city, the Chicken Barn was exactly what I had envisioned for this. Linda was an extremely welcoming host, she had thought of everything and left supplies in there to get me started including a bottle of wine. Some gorgeous walks and views straight from the lane outside the barn so didn’t need to drive during my stay although there is a useful visitor guide in the barn with loads of info on day trips if you did fancy venturing out further afield. The barn itself is warm and cozy a double bed and a bunk bed on the ground floor, lovely wet room with underfloor heating. A beautiful iron staircase leads up to the living area which has a sofa, a dining area and kitchen equipped with everything you need to cook for yourself during your stay if you are not eating out. The decor is beautiful, exposed beams and delightful light fittings made out of Kilner jars. I was travelling alone but imagine this would make for an extremely romantic setting for couples. I have stayed in a lot of cottages in my years but I think this one is by far my favourite yet! It was rather chilly outside during my stay but if you are visiting in spring/summer there is a lovely seating area at the back of the Chicken Barn with a bbq. With very little light pollution the stars at night were beautiful and made me wish I had brought a telescope for a spot of star gazing! Overall a wonderful and relaxing break and one I wish I had not had to come home from. Thank you Linda and Keith for letting me stay in your little slice of heaven xx
Stayed at Peak Retreat for a family Christmas and had a great time.
Communication with the owner was spot on - going beyond minimum and giving really useful info about the local area and the property itself.
Property was clean and tidy, with a cosy sitting room and a fantastic kitchen that was well equipped and a great space to socialise. Ample bathrooms.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and I would highly recommend Peak Retreat. We would definitely consider a return.
