Further details indoors:
This property was fully restored from a building just short of collapse. We believe it to be as old as the main farmhouse. Records have been found dating back to 1626. Any stone replaced had been taken directly out of the ground at Ravenscliffe as they match the stone of the existing building. The walls are interesting as the original builders didn't seem to have used a spirit level back in the 1600's. This adds to its charm however.
In additon to the settee, there is a large puffe'
This cottage is suitable for 2 people only.
Large fishing pond stocked with Rudd and Carp. Please bring your own fishing tackle. Not provided.
Further details outdoors:
Outside there is generous parking area for car. The stone walls around the patio and garden were all recently built, but in the same stone as The Barn. The stone seat is perfect to sit and rest, watch and listen to the sounds of the wildlife. The views are stunning. Watch the sun rise over the hill. There are dusk to dawn night lights around the farmyard. The Barn has exterior lights, operated by a switch.
Homestead Cottage, which sleeps 6 is just across the yard, should you wish to come as a family group.
Welcome pack provided on arrival.
Minimum charge of 3 nights. If staying less than 3 nights, departure time adjusted from 10am to evening.
We live on site and are generally around to answer any queries. We want to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay and very much prefer it if you could let us know if there any problems arise with the cottage, rather than trying to put up with it. I.e. the washing machine suddenly doesn't work or your need extra bedding

The Heart of England / Peak District / Peak District/Derbyshire region
Situated within The Peak National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Limestone and Gritstone quarries are still worked, but generally hidden by trees. Lead mining was once carried out in the area, but ceased some years ago. Hills and valleys create some dramatic scenery. Derbyshire once sat under a shallow sea. Evidence can often be seen in the rocks, with fossils of small crustations.
Blue John Gemstone is a rare mineral and the alternating colour bands of blue to purple through to yellow or white are unique to the Treak Cliff Hill in Derbyshire. The shallow rivers are ideal for Trout.

This is a beautiful property in which we spent a very relaxing weekend.

This is a comfortable and beautifully situated property. The owners are very friendly and helpful. It's very good for cyclists or walkers because you are minutes from two execllent trails and loads of similar opportunites are on the doorstep. There are loads of interesting old pubs round about, most with good food.
The trails are very popular in the Peak District. It was a pleasure to have had our guests stay at Ravenscliffe Farm in The Barn and then make full use of the facilities in the area. The cottage was left as found, very clean and tidy. Thank you both.

It was lovely to arrive to the Barn which was warm and comfortable even on an October night! The barn is decorated and furnished to a high standard and really is a home from home. The owners could... more
The walls of The Barn are thick and hence they keep the warmth in. I am so pleased our guests were nice and snug.
