Additional Location Information
Gooseberry Barn is on the outskirts of the small Derbyshire village of Holmesfield with its historic church and several pubs serving good food all within circa. 1 mile. This barn is ideally placed at the gateway to the Peak District National Park, with the historic country houses of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall and their parklands only a short drive away. It is also within easy reach of the market towns of Bakewell and Chesterfield (the latter with its famous crooked spire) plus the delightful village of Baslow. All have a host of excellent shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants (at least one with a Michelin star!)
For lovers of the outdoors, the area has everything from walking to cycling, climbing, fishing, horse-riding, caving and much more! Miles of cycle trails can be explored on foot or bicycle (cycle hire available locally or bring your own).
The White Peak is within easy reach, as are the caves of Castleton (home of the 'Mighty Titan' - the largest cave in the United Kingdom), the cable cars of Matlock, the thrills of Alton towers and the tranquillity and breath-taking scenery surrounding the Derwent Dams where the famous 617 Dambusters' squadron practised the dams' raids (still commemorated with annual fly-past).
Meadowhall, one of the largest shopping centres in the country, is within half an hour drive, as are the theatres and attractions of Sheffield city centre.
The Barn is located close to the B6054 which leads out into the Peak District.
