A lovely cosy barn, good peaceful location, great walks from the door, everything we needed was supplied and in excellent condition. Several nice pubs, two within a 2 minute walk. The welcome folder with local info was invaluable.
Only down side was no bath and no garden, but the other features more than made up for it!

Dragon Barn is situated in a lovely village and close to towns in a beautiful scenic area.
The barn is tastefully presented and the owners have provided all the extras you might need. It is warm, comfortable and charming.
We enjoyed being able to walk to the village pubs and eat out and to walk during the day and visit small towns . Ashbourne especially good for shopping.
Dragon Barn is excellently placed for a relaxing break.

We had a lovely time at Dragon Hill cottage. it
was clean and well equiped and the furnishings
were of good quality. it was as was described in
ideally situated to abraham heights, carsington
water and about half hour from alton towers. we
also expliored Dove dale area. good walks around
the only issue was that the TV picture was poor so
you could only watch DVD's.
we didn't try the local pubs due to the comments
in the visitors book there.
we would go back again. the owner was very
friendly and helpful Read more
Thank you for your review and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Dragon Hall Barn changed ownership in April 2011 and since then the new owners have spent time improving the TV signal and they hope that you will return to their lovely property in the future.

Not easy to find from the directions if you are travelling from the South, fine from the north.
Cottage renovated very nicely. Could do with somewhere to hang coats, put boots etc.
Disappointed that there wasn't kindling for the fire.
Over all a nice play to stay. Read more

Relaxing holiday in a lovely cottage, great area.

The cottage has been sympathetically restored and provides every modern comfort. It was impeccably clean and although the area is quiet the village provides interesting walks. The local pubs give good value and produce good food. It is a short distance away from other attractions,say Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall which are a "must" to see.
I cannot find fault and would stay there again.
