The following comments are taken straight from the guestbook we keep for Cruck'd Barn. Verbatim.
We really enjoyed our holiday the space was amazing. It was nice and quiet and was everything we wanted
Great place to stay for the weekend great location in the peaks and near a great pub too. Clean, spacious with plenty of space and facilities
The barn meets expectations and looks better than the photos. Cracking location with the pub within walking distance and plenty of public footpaths meaning you can leave the car and just walk straight into the peak district. Well stocked kitchen and bathrooms. Very clean and tidy, would stay again.
Enjoyed our stay, it was pretty relaxing, rooms and upstairs area were really nice.
Really enjoyed our visit, was a nice relaxing central point for the walks and trails we wanted to look at.
I recently had the pleasure of staying at this charming countryside retreat that left me thoroughly impressed. The location of this place is nothing short of idyllic, offering a perfect blend of rural serenity and accessibility. What's remarkable is that despite its secluded feel, it's just a convenient 20-minute walk away from a fantastic pub that serves delicious food. One of the highlights of my stay was the games room. It offered a fantastic way to unwind and have some fun. Whether it was a spirited game of pool or a leisurely round of board games, it added an extra layer of enjoyment to my stay. All in all, my experience at this countryside gem was truly memorable. The great location, clean and comfortable accommodations, and the enjoyable games room made it a stay to remember. If you're seeking a peaceful retreat that doesn't compromise on convenience and comfort, I highly recommend
Fantastic place in a great location. Clean, well equipped with a marvellous living area. Ideal for large families or groups. Highly recommend
Had a great time at the Cruckd barn this week. Really clean and lively space. Lovely location, despite the rain. Cot hadn’t been set up before we got there but I called peak venues and somebody came within 30 minutes to resolve. Great service. Strong Wi-Fi and good recommendations for pubs etc. Royal Oak was a lovely place to eat about 0.5 miles down the road.
We had a wonderful few days in this beautiful cottage! Very clean, comfortable and in perfect location.
Just a quick email to say how much we enjoyed our stay with you this weekend! The venue and set up is beautiful and we felt very well catered for!
Very well equipped and comfortable throughout. Lovely setting and an easy booking process from start to end. Would definitely recommend!
It was all lovely asks very efficient. All very well equipped and comfortable Thank you
We had a fabulous time. Thank you. The properties were perfect for our needs. Everything was comfortable, beautifully organised and very well equipped. We appreciated all the clarity and efficiency of your organisation.
We had a super time
We stayed here for an old university friends reunion. It was absolutely spot on! The open plan living space was perfect. The table was HUGE and gave us plenty of space to share meals and play games. The kitchen was very well equipped which was massively helpful as we had planned a dinner party. Bedrooms were all great although the bunk room was a lot smaller than we anticipated but was fit for purpose. Both Buxton and Bakewell were 15 mins drive away which was lovely, and there was lots of parking space. All in all, perfect for large groups or family gatherings! Thank you!
I would definitely recommend staying here. We really loved our stay. The house were very comfortable, we felt like at home. We had great walks around the house and surrounding villages. Thank you Peak Venue for your hospitality
Great location. Clear and regular communication from Peak Venues. Some great recommendations. Accommodation was clean and as described. Kitchen area perfect for groups and well stocked. Bathrooms a little tired.
We were all very impressed with the properties and area.
Had a fantastic 2 night stay. The accommodation is well equipped and met all our needs. Ideal to be able to park 3 cars and be so close to all shops and restaurants and local walks . It would be a great base for a longer stay to explore further afield as well.
Fun get together with friends and families. We used 2 out of the 5 (?) co-located cottages which were also busy, but the Barn still managed to feel remote. Really pleased that there was a charger (in fact 2) for my EV as these hadn’t been mentioned in the ad. Peak Venues were very helpful and would certainly consider staying at another of their properties
We stayed here for 4 nights with 2 families - a brilliant place to stay to explore the Peak District. Games room with table tennis was also a great bonus. Lovely property, great layout for socializing. Host was v responsive to questions we asked in advance
Perfectly located for nice walks. The venue was as described, the kitchen was well equipped.
We had a great stay as a family. Lovely cottage and good location.
The perfect base for exploring the surrounding peaks. A massive bonus as well that you've got a great pub a walkable distance away! Thoroughly enjoyed celebrating my boyfriend's 30th here. The barn was lovely and cosy which was definitely needed as it was freezing outside; would love to return in summer when we can make the most of the outdoor space!
Beautiful cottage and perfect to meet up with friends. A local pub only 15 minute walk away (ideal). The scenery was gorgeous. The place was very cosy and warm! Would definitely stay again!
Fantastic site equipped perfectly- generously sized, extremely clean and well located
This barn conversion is set in a peaceful private complex. The property is deceptively spacious with 4 good sized bed rooms, 3 with double beds and 1 with a bunk bed. 2 of the double beds can be separated into twin beds upon request which made our stay perfect for 6 adults. Not forgetting 2 en-suites and a main bathroom. We found no issues with the showers which were powerful so a little bit confused about the previous comments regarding this. The place was immaculately clean and furnished tastefully. We loved the huge dining table and the kitchen was very well equipped! We thoroughly enjoyed cooking here. The open living kitchen area with the exposed timber trusses made us want to spend the whole day indoors! Thank you Peak Venues for giving us the opportunity to stay in your beautiful venue. Everything was perfect. We will definitely book with Peak Venues again in the future.
Would recommend this venue to anyone.
Great venue, very homely and had all the amenities we could ask for. Perfect location for exploring the Peak District.
Unamimous verdict on the venue was GREAT. Lovely family reunion, lovely place to catch up after 2 Covid years. Thanks to you all.
Great house and location for a trip away with our friends and children , well equipped kitchen for self catering and beautiful and clean on arrival. Great location for lots of the peak trails with both Buxton and bakewell only 15 mins drive away and Royal Oak pub only 10 mins walk down the road is a must! Delicious food and friendly service -very accommodating for children and dogs . Thanks for having us , we had a fabulous holiday
Just wanted to send an email to say thank you so much for providing such a great service at Hurdlow Grange - the accommodation was absolutely perfect - completely spotless and everything we could imagine needing was provided. The team have been brilliant at communication from point of booking, often replying immediately! We have all been really impressed and everyone has said they would love to return.
This place was a perfect location for our work retreat. A beautiful rural location with lots of great walks from the doorstep, and a lovely large space inside to work and relax. We highly recommend!
What a beautiful space for having a family gathering! Well appointed, very clean & we all had a super stay. Buxton is 10-15 minutes away & is a lovely town. Highly recommend & we’ll no doubt use Peake Venues again!
We were 8 mums on a weekend escape and had a lovely stay at peak venues
This is a lovely property in a great location between Buxton and Bakewell. Not far from good hikes. Well equipped kitchen which is open plan so great for groups to socialise in, good parking, pretty views. If you’re a light sleeper bring ear plugs as the house is ‘squeeky’.
“Great place to stay! Loved the rustic feel of the barn”

My family wanted me to pass on how much they enjoyed the weekend at Hurdlow Grange. We all didn’t want to leave this morning
I would just like to thank you for an absolutely fantastic weekend at Hurdlow Grange enjoyed by all my family. The properties are so lovely, the location is fantastic with the pub in walking distance and Buxton close by.
If you have comments you'd like to leave then please get in touch. We love to hear all feedback - good or bad.
As our award winning pub is only 0.8 mile stroll down the lane, it would be rude not to pop in and sample the extensive menu and try the various local beers on offer. Reservations are recommended, please call 01298 83288.

With the Tissington and High Peak Trails close by you can walk for miles along these old railway lines. Both trails meet at Parsley Hay, the Tissington Trail runs along a 13 mile route from Ashbourne to Parsley Hay, while the High Peak Trail is 17.5 miles longroute from the High Peak junction near Cromford to Dowlow. Surrounded by beautiful countryside the traffic-free trail is ideal for horse riders, cyclists and walkers of all abilities. It is also suitable for wheel chairs and pushchairs along the flat sections and the trail is mainly mud free which is quite rare in the Peak District. To find the nearest access turn left out of Hurdlow Grange and walk up the lane for ½ mile and you will come to a track clearly marked on you right, follow this until you reach the beginning of the trail on the right hand side. The nearest bike hire can be found at Parsley Hay which is 2.5 miles away and is at the junction of the High Peak and Tissington Trails.

No visit to the Peak District would be complete without visiting the fabulous Chatsworth Estate. There really is something to do for every member of the family - The Farmyard and Adventure playground, the magnificent house and the gardens which are equally as impressive as the house , with the maze, the garden trails, and the famous water cascade to keep the little ones occupied.

A great day out for the family with something for everyone to enjoy. Start off with a visit to the famous Danebridge Fisheries, a great place to visit with kids, here you can fish in the well-stocked pool, catch your own supper or feed the trout (food supplied). Then a visit to the Wincle Brewery, where you can even do a one day brewing course! After a trip to the brewery why not call into the Ship Inn, just down the lane where you can sample Wincle’s fine ales in the pretty beer garden. Follow up with finally finishing the day off with a visit to Blaze Farm, a working farm that has become famous for their awarding winning Hilly Billy Ice Cream which is all made on the farm using the milk from their dairy herd. With tea rooms, nature trials and animals to pet there is something for everyone!
The spa town of Buxton can really offer something for everyone; enjoy a stroll around the pretty Pavilion gardens. The kids can enjoy the playground areas or you might chose to go for a swim at the recent refurbished swimming pool. The more adventurous may want to try out ‘Go Ape’ the treetop adventure course, for those without a head for heights a visit to Poole’s Cavern is fascinating, and it’s a great activity especially for kids when the weather does not cooperate for outdoor activities. For theatre lovers, seeing a show in the intimate Buxton Opera House is a must, and for the shopaholics the pretty Cavendish Arcade has a range of lovely little boutique shops. Lovers of real ale will enjoy visiting Buxton Tap House, which is Buxton’s own brewery pub serving its very own ales and bitters.
