A Heavenly Retreat in a Beautiful Part of the Peak District

We had everything we needed and more besides in this wonderfully adapted Barn conversion. Very thoughtfully planned with all mod cons and a very comfortable lounge with games, music and Dvds for our entertainment. With so many places and beautiful locations to visit this cottage makes it the ideal place to stay and in such a pretty village too. We were left to our own devices which is what we wanted without being disturbed by the owners but if needed they were only a phone call away.
Lovely location, lovely cottage.

Lovely clean property and very warm welcome from hosts.
Plenty to see and do, beware Chatsworth house very busy and hard to see everything due to volume of crowds
