“Totally relaxing”

Ballfields Barn is a beautiful relaxing holiday accommodation. 7 nights of peace and comfort with a homely feel. Several places of interest to visit, Biddulph Grange, Ilam & Dovedale, Trentham gardens plus the bird reserve on the doorstep. The owners Isabel and Brian were extremely helpful and accommodating.

Barn located in a peaceful location, with fantastic views of the countryside. Very well equipped, very clean and comfortable. Our two dogs appreciated the space, large field to run around in and great walks nearby - Reservoir’s & Manifold Trail. Isabel, the owner was very attentive but not intrusive and made us very welcome. We hope to return...

Met by Isabel who showed us around her lovely accommodation. Very clean, child friendly and relaxing. Views were lovely, even went for a walk around the next door Nature Reserve. Ideal place if your looking for peace and chill out time. Handy travel distance to nearby Leek and other local attractions as we were down for our Son's Graduation. Would definitely book again in the near future when back down. Thank you.

I would recommend this barn to anyone, it is beautiful. The owners Isabel and Brian have thought of everything down to a shoe shine. They are a lovely couple who should be immensely proud of what they have created. This barn is a home from home, beautiful setting and great scenery.

“Beautiful house, beautiful location”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2017

We had a really lovely stay in this fully equipped house. The owners are so nice and helpful, but not intrusive. It was great for our dog, secure, etc. The location is lovely and close to Leek for all supplies and places to visit like Ilam and Dovedale, as well as local steam railway, canal and walks. We would thoroughly recommend.

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to review our holiday barn. We love living in the beautiful Staffordshire peak district, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We also love black labradors!

“One of the best holiday lets we have ever stayed in.”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2017

This is a high quality barn conversion, lovingly transformed by the two owners, Isabel and Brian. There is absolutely nothing lacking in any of the equipment and facilities, and the two genial hosts, Brian and Isabel, are always on hand if anything is required. The barn is completely separate from the owners' house and has its own private garden and astounding views over the countryside. For nature lovers, the garden is full of birds visiting the well stocked bird feeders which are located directly outside the large patio doors. During the week that we were there, we photographed a total of 14 different species of birds on the feeders, ranging from various finches to an amazing woodpecker which was there every day. If you can tear yourselves away from the amazing accommodation, the barn is centrally located for many close tourist attractions, and will provide an excellent base for anyone wanting to explore the surrounding area. Highly recommended!!

Owner's reply: Thank you Johnstons for a great review. You were lovely, friendly guests.
