“The wow factor”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2013

Came over from Canada for a three week vacation.We spent 4 days at the old barn with my family there were 10 of us in the house the 5 bedrooms accomodated us just easily.The pics do not do this place justice It was homely and luxury all at the same time I would defiantly recommend the old barn to any one spending a vacation in the UK .

“Very close to alton Towers”

Reviewed 1 Nov 2012

Ideal location for alton Towers. Good size property. Kitchen nice and large. Family friendly accomodation. Good size garden and parking. Good communication and helpfulness from owners. Overall experience very good minor issue with showers {Used to power shower} and would have liked more towels. Nice touches with games etc and a welcome pack with local info. Village was a mile away and no pavements for us Townies need a car if you have children.

“Great location and excellent family holiday!”

Reviewed 11 Jan 2012

Located opposite the entrance to alton Towers, within walking distance. The accomadation was ideal for our large family. Grandparents took the downstairs bedroom and were able to avoid using stairs. Overall the property was clean and well equipped. However we did have to wash all the cutlery, plates, oven dishes etc before using because they were visabally dirty. Also gave they kitchen units a good wipe down. We loved having a washing machine and tumble dryer as our teenage children love to create mountains of washing, which I didn't have to spend days doing on my return home. Ideal location to access Peak district attractions by car, Bakewell and Derwent Valley. Stoke on Trent also near with a nice indoor shopping centre. We really enjoyed the comfort,space and location of this cottage. we would love to come again.

A fantastic house, needs some maintenance doing though and some kitchen stuff needs replacing - there were a lot of lights not working! Other than that we had a great time, thanks!

“Christmas- 2010”

Reviewed 9 Feb 2011

Lounge, kitchen, bedrooms were really good, large enough cottage for 7 adults and 3 children.Very warm, central heating and open fire were really appreciated in the very cold weather. The only criticisms were the bathroom and shower room,not enough hot water for a bath and shower leaked into kitchen beneath, shower downstairs didn't work properly (cold water) some crockery was chipped. But despite this we had a great time and I would recommend it.

“Perfect birthday weekend”

Reviewed 13 May 2010

The Old Barn was perfect for what I wanted. All of the rooms were really good sizes and really nicely decorated. The kitchen was well equipped, and we were met with fresh flowers and bread and milk - a really nice touch. The location was perfect for Alton Towers (it is literally walking distance) and some really nice walking and exploring of the area generally. Sarah was really friendly and helpful - I'd definitely go back.

“Fantastic Location”

Reviewed 18 Dec 2009

Really lovely cottage right next to the main gate of alton towers but still secluded, so ideal for getting in arly and going to and fro during the day. Large sitting room and kitchen, bedrooms really nice. Plenty of rom for the kids to lounge around at night. Nearest town is Oakamoor which is 10 - 15 minutes by car, plenty of grocery stores and take aways. Only downsides were garden didnt have big enough grass area for our 4 energetic children, but there was a swing. Also, there wasnt a pub within walking distance. Otherwise, very good house.

“Great Home Away From Home”
