    Little Barn sleeping up to 2 guests

    Little Barn offers walking, cycling and fishing right from the doorstep and is ideal for exploring Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.
    Little Barn is a light, bright, stunning detached barn situated on an equestrian centre, with sheep, hens and a very friendly dog. The barn is next to a golf course, overlooking rural countryside and with the owner living on-site. This property offers open plan living at its very best. A spacious living/kitchen/dining area has been furnished with a quirky, eclectic range of items, which will be adored by everyone who stays there. Little Barn has been designed for people who want to get away from it all regardless of the time of year to enjoy the beauty and tranquillity offered by this idyllic location. Relax on the patio and enjoy the views over the hills to the famous Crich Stand war memorial.
    The cottage offers walking and cycling right from the doorstep, and within a 5-minute drive there are trials for walking, cycling and horse riding, and within 15 minutes is the Crich Tramway Museum. Little Barn is located next to the villages of Higham and Wessington where you will find country pubs serving food and real ale. Close by is Hardwick Hall, built in the 1590s by ’Bess of Hardwick’, the second most powerful woman in England after Queen Elizabeth I. The Hall, and even its original tapestries and textiles, have survived unaltered for four centuries, and it is now open to the public by the National Trust. Near the estate’s original water mill, still in operation and open to visitors, is the Hardwick Inn, also built in the 16th century, probably by the masons who built the hall.
    A little further away are the delights of the Peak District, including Chatsworth House, a 30-minute drive, and the town of Matlock is just a 15-minute drive, with the amazing Heights of Abraham at nearby Matlock Bath, as well as some stunning countryside. For a nostalgic journey back in time through the Derbyshire countryside take a trip on one of Peak Rails steam engines, or visit Cromford Canal and take a trip into the past on an historic narrow boat. The towns of Chesterfield and Derby are just a 20-minute drive away, and nearby Nottinghamshire is also just 20-minutes away, here you can visit Nottingham’s castle or Sherwood Forest to go on a Robin Hood hunt! Close by is Teversal, a small village in Nottinghamshire which is surrounded by the Teversal Trail Visitors Centre, offering great access to the Teversal and Pleasley Trails network, perfect for enjoying a variety of walks and cycle routes. Visit the famous Crooked Spire in Chesterfield, Gulliver’s Kingdom in Matlock or for thrill seekers, Alton Towers theme park. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    "Beautiful barn in beautiful surroundings.Liz was wonderful , very helpful and accommodating.We will definitely like to visit again."
    Colin – 27 Oct 2018
    "Lovely and peaceful 4-day break which served as our base for walking and bike rides as it’s within easy reach of the Peaks and the Dales."
    Natasha – 6 Oct 2018
    "We had such a lovely stay at ‘Little Barn’. It’s beautifully decorated and is modern but cosy at the same time. The scenery is beautiful and watching the horses exercise in the evening was lovely. Other people have said about the road being unsuitable for cars (except 4x4s) but this isn’t true! Yes, there are some potholes leading up to the golf course but as long as you drive slow, it’s fine!Thank you for a lovely stay and we would definitely like to visit again xx"
    Susan – 17 Sep 2018
    "Little Barn was ideal for couples with nothing to much trouble for Liz and Phil. On our arrival we had lovely fresh eggs from their chickens and a welcome pack. We spent a lovely week at Little Barn and came away feeling refreshed ready to start again. Best of luck with your horse venture and your expansion plans.Thank you again."
    Marguerite – 11 Aug 2018
    "This property is very small, the size of a double garage/ studio. There is very little room to put things e.g. No wardrobe to hang clothes, no cupboard space in kitchen to store foodstuff that you bring with you on holiday. The seating throughout is uncomfortable , even outside the chairs are metal and hard to sit on. The property is clean though and the scenery around is lovely,there are good dog walks from the property. The owner is very helpful, there is an induction hob in the property which is not the easiest to operate, and one of the frying pans was not suitable for induction this was replaced very quickly when this was mentioned. Access to the place is down a long unmetalled track which is full of pot holes . Overall felt the price for this very small accommodation was way too high ,and did not represent good value at all."
    Graham – 15 Jul 2018
    "The views from the cottage were beautiful, the owners were very friendly and helpful and the cottage was close to the Derwent Valley which in itself was lovely to visit.We hope to be able to have a return visit in the near future."
    Gillian – 7 Jul 2018
    "Tasteful and very comfortable cottage with delightful outlook and outdoor space. Welcoming and thoughtful hosts whose attention to detail was much appreciated. We enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing week with many options for days out when we could pull ourselves away!"
    Cliff – 10 Jun 2018
    "The owners made us very welcome, the outlook is fantastic and peaceful.Walking from the door with many good eating places locally."
    Geoff – 2 Jun 2018
    "This is a lovely compact modern cottage cleverly designed and tastefully decorated, it is located on an equestrian farm at the end of a lane ( very private) with superb views over the fields, there are walks from the doorstep. The owners are helpful but not intrusive and we found the quietness extremely enjoyable away from the normal humdrum of our working lives."
    Julie – 30 May 2018
    "A beautiful cottage, well equipped and spotless.The owners made us feel very welcome, a very thoughtful welcome pack and milk in the fridge was a lovely touch (you can tell that they take a lot of pride in their cottage and want their visitors to enjoy their stay there)We really enjoyed our weekend and would not hesitate to return."
    Peter – 24 May 2018
    "Great location for a quiet break for 2, equipped to a high standard. The owners Liz & Phil set the right balance, there if you needed anything but not intrusive. Little Barn is well situated for ease of access to some beautiful walls in the southern Peak District, we had a most enjoyable time."
    Sally – 4 May 2018
    "Just as described on website. Lovely owners and romantic setting. Only drawback was the single track access road full of potholes ( suitable for 4x4s only). Handy for Chatsworth, Bakewell, Matlock and good for walks and cycling. Kitchen too small for serious self catering but otherwise very comfortable assuming owner adds storage for clothing, coatstands, etc as recommended by guests."
