The Surrounding Area

Perched high on a hillside position, Manifold Barns enjoys beautiful views overlooking the Derbyshire valleys. The former working dairy farm is steeped in history yet the contemporary style blends seamlessly to provide a cleverly converted cluster of stone-built cottages, barns, stables and farmhouse around a courtyard setting.

Manifold Barns is part of the rural hamlet of Shottle located in lovely rolling countryside, on the southern borders of the Peak District National Park. Nearby Wirksworth is a  small yet charming market town on the edge of the White Peak and is full of character, and a real gateway to the Peak District.

Just a short drive to  Carsington Water offering superb water sports and bike hire facilities. The exquisite Chatsworth House, impressive Haddon Hall and Kedleston Hall are within easy reach, as well as Ashbourne with its quaint cobbled stone marketplace, Matlock Bath with its spectacular cable car to the Heights of Abraham , Ecclesbourne Valley Railway and Gulliver's Kingdom. Only 2 miles away, the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site in Cromford is not to be missed.
