Lovely and cosy! Perfect spring trip - highly recommended.
A few friends and I rented this property for a weekend reunion together in May. The manager of the property was very accomodating from the point of booking, offering a complimentary bottle of wine, bread and milk of our choice to get us started!
The property itself was perfect for our party size, offering a cosy living area and kitchen diner allowing us to eat and socialise together.
Beds were comfortable and also games/dvds provided for our use - it really felt like a home from home! The property is also in a perfect location for local shops and pubs, as well as access to the lovely rural surrroundings for an explore. Perfect for groups of friends or families.
I would highly recommend this property - I am certainly hoping to come again!
Our lovely stay with the fur babies
Lovely property. Has all that you need. Chloe is friendly. Ideally located for walking from the doorstep or travelling to other beautiful locations in the Peak District. Tideswell is pretty with a good selection of shops/cafes.
Comfortable stay in Derbyshire
We had a lovely short break in this comfortable cottage, a great base for exploring the Peak District. Would definitely recommend.
Perfect Getaway Barn
What a wonderful place to spend a few days exploring the Peak District from. The converted barn had character, charm, comfort and charisma plus all the conveniences you’d expect. Perfect for a family of four (with adult kids). Highly recommend checking this place out.
A lovely stay but the barn space did lack flexibility
Chloe was extremely helpful in the lead up to our arrival and was able to provide a high chair and a playmat for our baby. The property was well equipped and the welcome pack was a lovely touch. The space itself wasn’t ideal for a family stay in that the second (kids) bedroom is directly raised above the kitchen with no door or sound proofing. This meant we had to keep noise levels and lighting to an absolute minimum after baby bedtime.
Great for a couple or small family
Very comfortable and relaxing stay, thank you!
