spacious base in the heart of Derbyshire walking country

Shay Side Barn appears to be in the middle of remote countryside according to the map, but we selected it for closest proximity to some well-known south Derbyshire walks - The Manifold Valley and Dovedale. Local roads were pleasant to drive through, and provided easy access to these attractions, to Matlock to the east, and Macclesfield to the north (to visit cotton and silk mills). The barn is very spacious, well equipped, and we felt very comfortable as part of a few buildings in the vast countryside.

The owners are lovely and you receive a warm welcome. The cottage and grounds are spacious. The views are something to behold. The furniture in the living room is low and difficult to get out of. I used a dining room chair. The distance between the bed and wall in the en-suite bedroom is tight and you have to walk in sideways.
These two points did not detract from the holiday though.

This is a very nicely done barn conversion next door to the owner's own house. It has beautiful views across the Derbyshire countryside and excellent parking.
Internally, the property is well laid out with a well appointed kitchen / dining room and lounge on the ground floor, with 3 bedrooms upstairs, one en suite. The en suite is quite small and the bathroom was actually better, but with two couples in the property, the two bathrooms were most important.
The property stands a little outside the village itself - which boasts an excellent pub for eating in - but within walking distance. There are footpaths very near the property for exploring the area.
The two downsides which prevent a 5 star rating are a) the lounge furniture, which is well past its "sell by" date and is most uncomfortable to sit in for any length of time (there was a race for the one comfortable sofa!); and b) the very poor wi-fi reception, which practically was only available in one corner of the lounge, due to the thickness of the walls. Both of these really need to be addressed.
Other than that, a really nice cottage, which will be on our short list for next year's Derbyshire visit.
Note that there are steps down to the front door and thus this is not suitable for anybody less nimble on their feet.

Perfect location for walking and touring the Peak District. The cottage had everything we needed and was very clean and comfortable. Plenty of books to read and Dvds and CDs. Especially liked that we could hear the sound system even in the kitchen. Would recommend the Greyhound Inn in Warslow for meals out. We will be returning to this cottage!
Spotlessly clean & good facilities in a quiet peaceful location.

This house was excellent value, spotlessly clean and in a good location. The owners were extremely helpful and we had access to the fields as well as the garden. A couple of small points is that it would have been very helpful to have had a stair gate at both ends of the stairs. Whilst our 13month old was not able to fall down from the top it was extremely difficult preventing him from climbing up from the bottom and therefore we had to barricade the stairs with suitcases etc.. A tumble dryer would also be a great help too, especially as it rained quite a lot during the week. It is important to make those wishing to hire, with small children know that the garden was not attached exactly to the house so we could not let the children into the garden unless we were there because cars were able to drive between the house and the garden, The garden itself though was a good size and quite private. It would be house that I would happily visit again

The owner greeted us immediately we arrived after a 300m journey with a welcoming tea pot and cake. Every essential feature was explained in terms to suit our tired minds. The place was spotless and carefully equipped everything worked as it should. It was home from home from the very first minute.
What more could we want? A wonderful view across the valley; a superb and friendly pub within walking distance, whether you chose the short route along the road or a gentle scenic stroll through the footpaths.
Shayside Barn was everything that it claimed to be. Helpful advice and directions was given by the owners if and when requested but at no time did we feel overlooked. When we wanted to barbecue a suitable spotless barbecue was provided. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble.
A brand new tv had been provided but was unable to overcome the exigencies of the terrain and some channels were impossible to tune in, however there was DVD/CD/Radio to fall back on if necessary and a plentiful supply of reading material.
We would certainly endorse this property and recommend it to any mature group wanting peace, space, and a marvellous touring area.

This was the best equipped cottage we have stayed in. It was spacious, well furnished and situated in a beautiful part of Derbyshire with plenty of places to visit. The owners were friendly and most helpful. We had excellent weather which, of course, helped but the cottage had books, games, DVDs etc so even with poor weather we would have had lots to keep us occupied. There was a pub nearby in the village which served excellent food.

It was a homely cottage warm and in a good location for friends to meet up from different parts of the country.
We enjoyed walks in the local area direct from the house and enjoyed visiting nearby villages in a car.
We were able to eat in and enjoy catching up with each other.
