"Superb accommodation in excellent location"

A very well equipped, cosy & spotlessly clean 'barn'. Great location for walks from the front door. Butchers, grocers & village pubs close by. Nice touch was wine, tea, coffee, milk & shortbread on arrival. Helpful owners & loads of local information in the barn to plan your day. Just wish we could have stayed longer!

Thank you for your review, it is much appreciated.
We are pleased to read that you found The Barn @ The Old Bakery met with your expectation.
The accommodation is well placed to explore the White peaks and the wider Peak District National Park.
The village is blessed with three good pubs all serving home cooked food and great ales. We also have a well stocked butchers and grocer/Post Office within 20metres of The Barn.
We hope you are able to return to continue your exploration of this beautiful area.

"Fantastic accommodation"

Stayed here for my birthday weekend Cannot recommend this converted barn highly enough. It is superb as a base for walking in the local area and it had everything you wished for regards a supply of books DVDs suggested walks and even a map.
We ate in the Farmyard Inn recommended by Ken on Saturday night and enjoyed it so much we returned on Sunday night again ! We will definitely be re-booking for a longer stay
PS.Thanks for the wine it was very much appreciated

Thank you for your review, it is much appreciated.

We hope that our guests are able to quickly relax and embrace this beautiful area.
We look forward to seeing you again.
