The property was very good with all amenities available. Extremely comfortable with a very efficient heating system. The kitchen was the perfect shape and all the necessary equipment was provided. The lounge and bedrooms were a nice size and comfortably furnished.
The area is very pretty and Buxton, Bakewell and Chatsworth are all worth a visit.

An excellent barn conversion, in a lovely dales village, and the owners are most friendly and helpful. The property is beautifully presented, clean and well designed. Location is ideal for National Trust properties, cycle trails, Chatsworth and Haddon Hall. The village has all the necessary amenities, and there are excellent local pubs serving fine meals.
Fabulous barn in stunning location.

The facilities of this barn were absolutely excellent with many extra touches provided by the owners. The fixtures and fittings were of the highest quality, it was spotlesly clean, and we had everything we could possibly need and more besides - comfortable beds and sofas, well equipped and spacious kitchen, outdoor space. The barn is in an excellent location with a short walk to the nice village centre for pub food (Old Cheshire Cheese pub), fish & chip shop (although not tried!), craft centre & cafe, newsagents/general store. Another nearby good pub/restaurant was The Royal Oak at Hurdlow. We were baffled with the underfloor/central heating controls, although this wasn't a problem.
We wisely decided, but reluctantly, to return home one day early because of a severe weather warning, but were unable to inform the owners as there was no mobile phone signal! Highly recommended place to stay.

Beautifully finished cottage

A lovely cottage, beautifully finished to a high and modern standard.
It snowed all week so the cottage proved a lovely warm place to return.
Longnor is an excellent little village and we would not think twice about returning to both the village and the cottage.

Great Cottage Great area
Left on 11/01/2012 for a stay in August 2012 | John
This was a lovely cottage owners were very welcoming but left us alone to do as you liked. Local Pubs/restaraunts very good and fairly priced.
A novelty to see the cows coming and going for milking
though far enough away that they did not disturb us.
Good base for sight seeing & walking amazing views from all windows very cosy and well equipped will definitely book again and can recommend if a quiet and relaxing holiday is what you need.
Our Second visit

Another visit to this Great place. The barn is a real home from home and we enjoyed our weeks stay. It's relaxing, stress free and peaceful. The owners are welcoming and helpful and always willing to advise or recomend. The village has everything including two very good pubs, a chip shop and village stores for all you daily needs. The trouble with this place is its so nice you want to tell people about it, but you don't want it to be unavailable for your next stay!

A great place too leave the car

The accommodation was lovely with all mod cons and very close to the village centre. There are so many local walks and regular buses to ashbourne and Buxton so we were able to leave the car until our journey home.

Accomodation was excellent and well presented. Welcome bottle of wine and milk was a nice gesture. The only thing which could have improved our stay as we were there during heavy snowfall would have been able to use the wood burning stove which was advertised but not in use.

Great location on outskirts of the small village of Longnor. The house was impeccably presented and very well equipped. Comfortable beds, large lounge area and very good kitchen. Owner was very helpful but not intrusive.
Some good walking around (as long as the rains hold off).
Excellent also for touring to other Peak towns.
Great cottage in lovely area

Combined our fortnight's holiday with our son's wedding in the middle weekend and it was great to go back to Gould's Barn for a relaxing week after the event. Excellent cottage with all facilities needed to make for a very comfortable stay. The owners very friendly and helpful without being obtrusive. Everything was very clean and all furniture and fittings of a very high standard. The weather was really hot (hottest October on record) and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the views and really chill out. Would definitely recommend the cottage and hope to visit again.

A lovely welcome by the owner showing us around the cottage with milk in the fridge and a bottle of wine.
Superbly well equipped and beautifully clean with a high standard of fixtures and fittings,including the furniture.
Location convenient for enjoying the Peak District,with the added bonus of a shop and two pubs in the village.
We stayed in the winter and the wood burning stove was lovely after a days walking in the cold.

Superb Converted Barn in Quiet Location
Left on 05/20/2010 for a stay in March 2010 | Derek
Property could not be faulted, High end conversion,under floor heating very cosy, high spec kitchen & bathroom. All equipment and fittings as new in all rooms.
Longnor nice quiet country village, visted the nearest pub which provided a good pub meal, with entertainment by the host who happend to be a magician!
My wife and I were having a long weekend in the area as our daughter was attending a 'hen' weekend in the Dales, so this was our reason for being in the area and where we stayed. As it turned out it was a very pleasant place to be as we love walking and birdwatching.
We will certainly come back again to the area and the accomodation.
