having stayed in many self catering cottages over 16 years I can honestly say this was the cleanest we have ever stayed in. A real home from home. Great setting, great walks from the door. we didn't use the car all week!
peace and tranquility in spades

Such a lovely setting on a hill overlooking Cromford and Maltock,yet within walking distance from shops and pubs.
This charming detached cottage,very tastefully converted,is ideal for a couple of any age, young at heart and fit enough to climb the spiral staircase every morning and evening.
Great venue for visiting Bakewell and Buxton.Lovely walks along old railway tracks,especially the Monsall trail.Do not miss out the beautiful Dovedale valley alongside the river Dove up the three miles to Milldale.
exactly what it says on the tin

As advertised in the Sykes brochure, The Barn is an idyllic, peaceful, brilliantly realised conversion: rustic yet comfortable and well-equipped with a perfect location. Just go out the door and you're in the heart of the countryside but shops, pubs etc. are easily accessible. The photo doesn't actually do the place justice but the descriptions are entirely honest and accurate. I'd love to go back. I was on my own but it would be brilliant for couples.

Comfort in Cromford

Renting this property through Sykes was uncomplicated and quickly arranged. We will certainly use Sykes Corttages again when looking for holiday rental properties.
The Barn was just perfect for us as a couple looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life for a quiet weekend of solitude and escape.
The cottage was small and perfectly formed for two, with every amenity you could need and very well cared for. We would, and have reccommeded it to friends looking for something similar. It is often difficult trying to find cottages for two so it was a great find.
We had contact with the owners when arranging to pick up and drop off keys to the property. They were very helpful and pleasant as too were the neighbours who came to chat when we arrived, giving us some good local tips for places to go and things to see.
Overall a very pleasant weekend was spent in the comfort of a luxurious cottage in a county which has so much to offer. Thank you.
lovely romantic setting

A beautiful well equippped cottage, very well furnished and with stunning views over the Cromford valley. it was a true home from home,and we would thoroughly recommend it. We had a minor problem with the hot water, but the owner came out at once and sorted it. We found others had had issues with the shower and DVD, but we found no such problems, just used common sense!! the surrounding area is lovely with plenty to do. One small quibble, pubs and shops were not '10 mins walk away' - it was about 20 mins downhill and 30 mins back again

The Barn is everything the brochure describes and is a perfect retreat in a lovely area.
The location of the property is ideal, particularly for access to the numerous walks and for visiting all the places of interest the area has to offer.
