Winnow Barn is a delightful property dating back to the 1700's. It has recently been sympathetically converted from a traditional Derbyshire limestone barn and retains its spectacular vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and characterful stonework. It features a large stylish open plan kitchen/dining/ lounge area which oozes rustic charm and style and offers stunning views of the surrounding countryside. The superb country kitchen is well equipped and the traditional woodburner provides a lovely focal point for a cosy evening in. All four luxury en-suite bedrooms have been individually furnished creating an elegant and relaxing ambiance. Crisp white linen and fluffy white towels are provided.
Winnow Barn boasts an unrivalled location for walkers and cyclists of all abilities. Being situated between Dovedale and the Manifold Valley and in close proximity to both the Tissington Trail and Manifold Trail there is something for everyone. Other activities nearby include fishing, horseriding, watersports at Carsington Water and family fun at Alton Towers. Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Keddleston Hall are all close by and offer an excellent day out.
Come and be spoilt for choice when eating out at the many country pubs and restaurants nearby.
Our guests enjoy the peace and tranquillity of our small working farm where its not unusual to encounter a cheeky goat or free ranging hen pottering around beside the spring fed stream which trickles beside the barn. Watching the sunset from the seating area outside the barn is a perfect way to end a relaxing day. For both old and young alike we feel that Winnow Barn offers something rather special.
