The Derbyshire region

Best View Barn is located on the border of Cheshire and Derbyshire in the foothills of The Peak National Park. The area is simply beautiful with large rolling hills and views across Cheshire Plain, taking in 7 counties. The Peak Park is totally unspoilt with moors and forests. It is ideal for walkers and hikers.


Buxton is a cultural hub with its Opera House that attracts wonderful productions of theatre, ballet and opera. It is particularly renowned for the Buxton Festival and the Gilbert and Sullivan Festival, both of which take place in July each year. There are many stately homes nearby, including Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Gawsworth Hall, Little Moreton Hall, Lyme Park and Tatton Hall.

There are numerous walks with breathtaking views in the area, as well as other outdoor activities such as mountain biking, caving, go karting, Go Ape, canal boating and sailing.

Keen shoppers are within an hour's drive (or 30 mins by train) of Manchester to the north or Stoke on Trent and the potteries to the south. Macclesfield, Congleton and Buxton are within 20 mins drive and have all of the major supermarkets and independent shops.

"Delightful farm-side experience"

If you're looking at the area, you probably already know the sheep outnumber the people. Bestview Barn is a converted barn that's both homey & luxurious. There's a beautiful view across the valley that is like looking at a painted back-drop. For my wife & teenage kids, one of the big treats was the sheep & cows that came up to the fence to say hello. Owner was a treat to work with.

A true oasis of tranquility off the beaten path.
