The Cattle ShedSleeps 22

Luxury Converted Barn with Amazing Views

Starting life as a working Cattle Shed, this former agricultural building has been cleverly converted into a sophisticated dwelling for large groups. With a total of 11 beautiful bedrooms all en suite, The Cattle Shed is perfect for 22 adult guests but if you are a family group with children and happy sharing the larger bedrooms with your children in the room you can sleep a couple more (if agreed at the time of booking).

Perched high on a hillside, this unique architect-designed luxury self-catering property enjoys amazing vistas with floor to ceiling bi-fold glass doors/windows taking full advantage of the fine Peak District views across the valley towards the stunning rugged Froggatt Edge and The River Derwent which runs below.

The property sits just outside the village of Grindleford (a 10 min stroll) which is well served with a train station, two pubs, café (great for breakfast before a walk to Padley Gorge) and village shop. You are close to Hathersage, Eyam, Chatsworth, Longshaw Estate and the dramatic edges of Froggatt, Curbar and Baslow.
