Living space

The Barns has been beautifully restored by cleverly adjoining two derelict stone buildings. The property has been converted to a very high standard throughout with ample space for a group of ten guests to enjoy a self catering stay.

With a great  mix of old and new, the modern open plan social space on the ground floor has large floor to ceiling windows over looking the garden, creating a lovely light and airy feel.  The lounge area is furnished with plush leather sofas.

Garden and Outdoor Space

Tucked quietly away from the hustle and bustle of this popular market town, you turn into a narrow lane (approx 3 metres wide) where you approach a  five bar gate (this is narrow too so do check the width of you car is less than 2.44m). You enter into a gorgeous and well maintained private garden which is laid to lawn with flowering borders. There is a wonderful entertainment patio furnished with outdoor lounge sofas and BBQ facilities (please remember to bring your own coal).

To make the most of the stunning surrounding area you are very welcome to bring bikes. The Barns is a perfect base for cycling in the Peaks as there is a secure storage shed for approx 10 bikes and a hose to wash down muddy wheels —perfect if you are keen cyclists.

The provision for private parking for 3 cars means you can park up for your entire stay if you choose and explore Bakewell and its surrounding villages by foot or bike due to fabulous central location.

Bakewell and The Peak District

Just a 2 minute easy walk down the hill you arrive at the central hub of Bakewell just outside The Rutlands Arms. Bakewell which is famous for its Bakewell Pudding (with the Original Pudding Shop open every day for you to buy this famous treat), also has a variety of independent shops, an abundance of lovely cafes, restaurants and pubs for you to explore and enjoy.

You are literally a short drive away from the most amazing of Peak District treats for you to enjoy - Chatsworth House (10 minutes), Haddon Hall (10 minutes), historic spa town of Buxton (20 minutes) to name just a few.

Alternatively, pop on your boots and head off on foot in whatever direction takes your fancy with access to the most incredible walks and dramatic landscape the Peak District has to offer. We recommend you jump onto the Monsal Trail or drive a short distance to the village of Monyash to walk the Lathkill Dale or head to Ashford in the Water to view the impressive Monsal Dale.
