This accommodation was ideal and met all our requirements. It had everything to help make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The bedrooms were cosy and clean, the bathroom with its spacious shower was also lovely whilst the kitchen and dining area had more than adequate facilities. We spend all our evenings in the spacious living room, watching TV (as it was part of the Wimbledon fortnight!). We could not have made a better choice for our base to explore the Peak District.
Superb views, comfortable and well-equipped cottage with friendl

This is our fourth stay at Stubben Barn, and we are never disappointed. Mike and ann Kerry are so welcoming and nothing is too much bother for them. The cottage is superbly-equipped and very comfortable and warm. The view from the large lounge window over the reservoir is wonderful and the Matlock Hills from the side windows superb, when it is not raining!! Couldn't want anywhere nicer. Central location for visiting Derbshire.
