Description from owner


Croft House Barn is a lovely, characterful cottage for up to 6 (plus cots) in the scenic Peak District hamlet of Waterfall. 4 star Gold awarded by Quality in Tourism, you'll find three en-suite bedrooms - one on the ground floor - spacious living accommodation with ample comfortable seating, separate dining area and well-equipped light oak kitchen. But if you don't want to spend time cooking, the Red Lion Inn, with inviting log fires and serving home cooked food, is just a two minute stroll down the lane.

Carefully renovated over recent years, exposed stone and ancient oak timbers date from their 400 years use in the barn to our attached former farmhouse. (Guests privacy is paramount but we're nearby if needed!) Croft House Barn is now a cosy well-furnished home-from-home, with it's flat-screen TV with freesat, music system with iPod dock, CDs, books, games - ideal for relaxing in comfort after exploring the many attractions and activities within easy reach.

Outside patios to front and small one at rear, with furniture and BBQ are great for those fine days - savour the peace and quiet, bee and butterfly friendly flower and herb beds and our resident garden birds! Prices include high quality linens and towels, heating, electricity, freesat and wifi, together with fresh flowers and 'welcome' pack including local and homemade produce. We have a folding bed which can be provided for an additional charge of £25.

Croft House barn is close to some most scenic areas in the south west Peak District National Park: you can walk or cycle from the door to the spectacular Manifold Valley or drive to Ilam, Dovedale, the Roaches and Alton Towers Theme Park in 20 minutes. Historic market towns, Ashbourne and Leek are under 15 minutes away, while in around 45 minutes, you can choose from at least three reservoirs offering water sports, walks and wildlife, more than 6 stately homes or gardens, including the wonderful Chatsworth, Kedleston, and Haddon Hall plus heritage tours of The Potteries and Derwent Valley Mills. The South West Peak Park is heaven for those of us who love exploring historic villages with quaint pubs and tea-rooms for cream teas, cakes and warming soups, while for the more active, there's climbing, horse-riding and golf in addition to rambling and cycling for which it is even better known.

Even though the skies did not stay clear and bright we had a wonderful stay. Croft farm is large and spacious but we were pleasantly surprised at how cosy and warm it felt.
