Why Abdoulaye diaw chose High Peak District

Beavers Croft has been in our family for the past seven years and we have spent many wonderful weeks relaxing in its gardens. We especially enjoy its remote location and the sense it brings of being away from it all. If you are feeling active, there are endless activities to choose from on your doortep and if you would rather relax and unwind, what beautiful surroundings to do it in. In the Winter, the barn has a very cosy feel. Perfect for cooking a family dinner and playing board games by the log burner.

What makes this barn unique

The only accommodation close to the beautiful reservoirs and the Howden Dam (dambuster practice site). Stunning views all around the property. Secluded. Off grid (Solar energy, biomass, fresh filtered stream water)

Brilliant Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time here at Beaverscroft. Plenty of room for the size of our party. Clean, comfortable and homely. Ab, Pippa and Paul were the most friendly and helpful people (and dog!!) you can imagine. We would recommend this as the perfect place to stay.

Beautiful scenery and walks. Close to pubs, restaurants, villages and towns. Lots to do and see.

Amazing stay!!!! Thank you, Ab!

  • 5 of 5

This was exactly what we were looking for and what we needed. We were traveling as two families with 4 teenage boys (ages 14-19). Beavers Croft was our 2nd stay after 6 days in Bath and before our 3rd stay in London. We had plenty of room for all 8 of us and all the accommodations were up to date and comfortable. The real gem is the history of the Croft and dams, the hiking trails, quietness, and our hosts. We needed a period to relax after Bath and before London and we got it. If you are looking for a quiet place that is away from everything (but not too far) and you feel like you own it and all the park around you, this is where you want to stay. The grounds are well manicured and comfortable. You can access hiking trails right from the house or take a short drive or bike ride. Hike to town or pubs. Our boys are runners and they felt very comfortable going out on their own to get their miles. Ab and Paul (the awesome and super friendly Boston Terrier) were the best and most gracious hosts. Pippa, we would have loved to meet you and share stories, but we know you had bigger things ahead of you during our stay. Beavers Croft was definitely a highlight of our stay and we would love to go back. Ab, thanks for everything! Jim, Denise, Todd, Tami, Adam, Evan, Zach, and Jacob.

Suggestions: Find out in advance what the house offers for food, drink, appliances, and hygiene products and shop before you arrive because you won't want to leave anytime soon.

We had a brilliant weekend of walking in the Peaks. Beaverscroft was the perfect place to relax, recouperate and reminisce. The smoker was a particular treat when it came to BBQ time!

A weekend to remember!

  • 5 of 5

We have just got back from celebrating my mums 50th over Christmas and NY at Beavers Croft and it was amazing! The barn is in the most stunning location next to the Howden Dam, with loads of walks available from the doorstep. It was beautiful, comfortable and fully equipped with everything we needed. We spent the majority of the time around that beautiful fire! While there is no phone signal, there is WiFi which worked well for us. The nearest towns are Hathersage and Bamford, within a 10-15 minute drive, where there are pubs and tea rooms. Big thanks to Sarah and Steve for making us feel welcome, and also helping us through the snow! A real gem and the perfect spot to get away from it all, would highly recommend!

The Peak District National Park offers breathtaking views and plenty of opportunity for adventure. The Derwent Valley, where our property is situated is one of the most popular parts of the Peak due to its attractive mix of beautiful reservoirs, dams and woodland within the surrounding moorland. For families, walkers and cyclists there are endless trails to explore - all of which you will find in our information pack in the barn. Bikes can be hired at the visitors centre down the road and once you are set, nature is right on your doorstep. Picnics by the water, the nature trail and taking a guided walk to explore the highest points of the Peak District are some of our fondest memories at Beavers Croft. Enjoyable days out to Chatsworth House and Bakewell to sample the bakewell tarts, visiting the farmers markets and a Sunday roast in one of the many local pubs are also firm favourites. For the children, there are plenty of farmyards, adventure parks and wet weather options. In the Summer, the gardens at Beavers Croft have a magical feel and in the Winter, boardgames around the log burner keep you feeling cosy. Once you have made your booking we will send you our information pack and you are welcome to contact us with any queries you have. We do hope you enjoy Beavers Croft as much as we do.
