Great place for a couple in a very quiet village. secluded garden area, good walks from the door. great cycle tracks within a couple of miles. So much to see and do within 30 mins travel. Lovely owners and very welcome bread, cake and goodies to help you settle in. Highly recommended

This little place is a positive haven. Everything & more than what we wished for. Dog friendly too with lots of walks on the doorstep. With home baking by the lovely owner and extra goodies left for us we felt so spoilt. We are hoping to return as soon as we can find time.
A cosy and comfortable cottage in a peaceful location
Left on 09/06/2012 for a stay in May 2012 | Jenny Banyard
We received a friendly greeting from the owners, which made us feel at home immediately and a further welcome awaited us indoors in the form of milk, bread and butter, tea, coffee, home-made cake and even a bottle of wine!
The property was clean; the bed firm and comfortable; plenty of storage space; and the kitchen equipped with all the bits and pieces one could wish.
Although the secluded garden at the rear was surrounded by hedging, obscuring the view, the owners were very pleased to allow visitors to enter their own garden via a gate and enjoy the view from there. For those wishing to leave the car behind, it was only a short walk to the main village street which was well served by the local bus, giving access to Bakewell and Matlock.
We liked everything about the cottage except the sticking stable door to the garden, but this wouldn't stop us coming back to enjoy anothe holiday in this lovely place.
An excellant week, highly recommended.

The description of the cottage was accurate.
The hostess was very welcoming and the home made cakes made my birthday celebrations even better.

The property was in an ideal location to explore the peak district and close to many major attractions. There were lovely walks around the area aswell. The enclosed garden was ideal for sitting and our dog. The accomodation was clean, warm and vry well equipped. No hesitation in going back.

From the moment we were met by our hosts we were made to feel at home. They had thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable. The cottage was clean and well maintained and within easy reach of local attractions and set in a lovely village surrounded by beautiful scenery. We were supplied with basic essentials on arrival and treated to tasty home baking during our stay and even left for the journey home with a freshly baked cake! A wonderful base to explore the countryside and lovely to relax in after a long day walking.

Weve given Barn Croft the full five stars because on the whole it deserves it. Carolyn the owner was so very thoughtful with a lovely starter pack inc wine aned then in the middle of the week scones and a lemon cake! what kindness. The cottage was just about the right size for the two of us with a great garden to sit in. Location was very central, 15mins to Matlock and 5 to the miners pub. If I was being very picky, we are used to a 42inch plasma so we found the TV hard to see, if that was put right then you would have the perfect cottage for a stay!!!
A delightful cottage and very helpful and friendly owners

Very helpful and friendly owners. The wine and homemade scones and jam which awaited my arrival were much appreciated and enjoyed. The cottage was very comfortable and located in a very peaceful area with splendid views. I could not find any fault with this cottage, the owners or the area it was located in.
