Overview & description
Barn conversion cottages offering exceptional comfort and luxury. These 17th century barns have been lovingly restored/converted into luxurious self catering accommodation. Set amidst 700 acres of open farmland, the cottages enjoy spectacular views over the Peak District, surrounded by spacious gardens with the added luxury of a Finnish Barbeque House and hot tub.
Each cottage is attractively furnished to a high standard, with exposed beams and stonework retaining much or the original character. These cottages are truly a home from home, designed so that your holiday is the ultimate get away from it all.
Underfloor heating in Birch, Rowan and Bramble Cottages is a real treat, as well as making the cottages delightfully cosy, its very effective at warming a bottle of red wine quickly! The Farmhouse has conventional heating with extra heat produced from log burners in the lounge and dining room areas. The bedrooms enjoy luxury feather bedding, 100% cotton bedlinen. Large white fluffy towels and toiletries from Arran Aromatics are provided in the bathrooms. The kitchens are fully equipped, but if you’d rather take a break from the cooking, there is a great selection of country pubs/ restaurants a short drive away.
You may be looking for an outdoor break, in addition to endless walking and cycle trails there are lots of activities nearby which range from Horseriding to high ropes courses.
Or if a relaxing holiday is more your thing, the cottages have complementary wifi, ipod docks, flat screen televisions and selections of board games and magazines.
In an aim to lessen our carbon footprint, in November 2013, we converted to wood fuelled heating by installing a biomass boiler. This brings huge benefits to our cottages in the form of piping hot water, high pressure showers and the continued luxury of underfloor heating (conventional in Farmhouse) while at the same time being environmentally friendly.
The well kept gardens are extensive, they surround the cottages, various seating areas provide the perfect place to unwind on warmer days. A hot tub/spa is shared between the cottages and is the ultimate in relaxation after a days walking/cycling. The barbeque house is idyllic, wooden with a central fire pit its an extremely fun way to cook in the evening.
With dogs welcome, (maximum 2 per cottage and a charge of £30 per pet), there are walks directly from the cottages as well as plenty in the local area. Detailed maps and pathfinder guides are provided in the cottages.
As licensed premises, there are wine lists in each cottage and the opportunity to buy wine/sparkling or choose from a local selection of beers/cider.
