CHATSWORTH, THE PRETTY MARKET TOWN OF BAKEWELL, THE SPA TOWN OF BUXTON & BEAUTIFUL ELIZABETHAN HADDON HALL ARE ALL ALSO A SHORT DRIVE AWAY.
At Ford Old Hall Barn we strive to exceed your expectations, you will receive great hospitality from us, we don't use a manager so we personally make sure the standards are just right for you.
We will try to accommodate any special requests you may have. We are on hand if you need us but you can be totally private too if that's your preference.
Relax as soon as you walk through the door as your meal with wine will be waiting & the table set so no need to start cooking or looking for somewhere to eat when you arrive, what more could you ask for!
There's a breakfast basket prepared with croissants, pain au chocolat, pain au raisin, a home baked loaf, butter, milk, eggs, preserves, coffee, tea, sugar - certainly enough for a short break stay, so if you don't want to, you don't even have to think about shopping for food until you have settled in.
You won't need to bring anything with you apart from your luggage (& your own choice of personal toiletries).
The barn is fully equipped, a true 'home from home', soft white fluffy towels, white luxurious cotton bedding, hypo allergenic duvets, 'heavenly' mattress toppers for that extra comfy night's sleep & your choice of pillows.
Additional large bath towels & white robes are there for you to use with the hot tub or to feel completely relaxed in & around the barn.
Dishwasher detergents, soap powder & conditioner plus many kitchen basics are also provided.
A basket of logs to start you off to set your cosy atmosphere with the Scandinavian log burner.
Explore the beautiful Peak National Park on foot, there are walks right from the door. We have access to 3 excellent, flat, converted railway tracks which are great for either walking or cycling.
If you see 10 cars a day in Ford it will be considered 'busy'! You are more likely to encounter the odd tractor or two.
Further details indoors
The barn is immaculately converted with an 'upside down' living arrangement, with stone floors downstairs & solid oak floors upstairs, both with underfloor heating provided by our eco friendly heat pump which provides constant hot water too.
A very sociable open plan living/dining/kitchen space upstairs which has a high ceiling & beams.
The Kitchen is fully fitted in Oak with granite worktops, there is a breakfast bar area for 4 or a more formal dining table for 4. A Britannia oven with 6 ring gas hob & double multi function electric oven/2 fridges (for those Christmas & New Year groceries - 1 is never enough!)

The Scandinavian log burner for those cosy winter evenings.

There are great walks across the beautiful Staffordshire Moorlands part of the Peak District, some straight from the door, the Manifold Valley is right on our doorstep, so too the Hamps way.
Dovedale & historical Ilam are 10 mins by car.
It is safe to walk the circular 5 mile route on our single track lanes without worrying about too much traffic, perhaps the odd tractor or two!

“Five stars PLUS PLUS”
Rarely write reviews but felt that Nigel and Lynn really need to be congratulated. Both are hugely welcoming, knowledgeable about the local area, and genuinely want guests to have a wonderfully relaxing break. They have a great eye for detail and we lacked for nothing during our stay. I won’t repeat what others have said but any FIVE STAR review you may read Is totally accident. We will definitely be returning.
Enjoed a magnificent weekend at The Barn. The setting could not be more desirable. Located in a quaint Hamlet with surrounding farms and streams and lots of hills. The Barn has been lovingly converted into the ideal holiday home. Set over two floors with the bedrooms on the ground floor and the spacious living room and open plan kitchen /dining room on the second floor, affording stunning views out of the windows over the surrounding peak district. The Hot Tub was a firm favourite of ours , whiling away a few hours on a lovely misty morning listening to the surrounding wildlife. The hosts were faultless providing a warm welcome on arrival and being on hand for anything that we possibly needed throughout our stay. (not that we needed anything). They provided superb local knoweldge of where we should visit and the local sights we should see. I cannot thank them enough for making our stay such an absolute pleasure. Thank you. We shall be back.
“Wonderful, warm and welcoming”
This barn is excellent. In a lovely peaceful location with gracious and welcoming hosts that go the extra mile to make sure your stay is perfect. They provide a meal on arrival and received and put away an online shop for us. The standard of accommodation is very good, the furniture fixtures and fittings are quality and the barn is spotlessly clean and well maintained. The barn has been designed with the bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on the ground floor and open plan living accommodation upstairs which is an excellent use of the available space. Highlights include the hot tub immediately outside the master bedroom which can be used in all weathers and is private and secluded. We enjoyed watching the sunset from it across the garden views. The location is a lovely base for touring the peak district. There is nature all around, we saw kestrels, herons, owls and deer without really trying. A lovely stay, highly recommended.
This was our first visit to the peak district and it diddnt disapoint..i booked this place as a suprise for my wifes 40th birthday,and what a perfect find it was..can not fault it at all,arrived to a lovely cooked meal and wine,a lovely card and bottle of prosecco was left for my wife,Lynn & Nigel were fantastic hosts and lovely people one night inviteing my two boys round to theres to watch a football match and one afternoon we joined them in there garden for a drink..Ford Old Hall Barn fully deserve a 5*.if you going to visit the peak district then look no further.
We were looking for a weekend away from everything and must admit we were a little nervous of staying in close proximity to the owners property, however that was not an issue at all not even when Nigel came to check the hot tub, we didn't even hear or see him. We had a wonderful home-made Chilli and bottle of Red Wine when we arrived after a nightmarish journey due to Friday afternoon traffic, so after a dip in the hot-tub we enjoyed a lovely meal before turning in :) The barn has been lovingly converted and the log-burner came in use on Saturday after we woke up to the unexpected snow fall, which was lovely. Thank you Nigel & Lynn for a wonderful stay, we would definitely recommend you to our friends and family.
“A lovely experience”
Obviously I am going over old ground here, and it's hard to think of anything new that hasn't already been said about this fabulous barn. From the moment my husband found this on Trip Advisor Lynn kept us fully informed about the stay. We arrived just after 5 to be met by Nigel who couldn't have been friendlier- he showed us about and when we went upstairs to the kitchen/dining/living area we were met by a fully laid up table, the aroma of a chilli in the slow cooker and a bottle of red! Who could ask for more? Nigel gave us some pointers of where to visit and recommended a couple of places to eat. We chose to go to The Devonshire Arms in Hartington and had a good meal there- freshly prepared and good value for money. The staff there were also very friendly and made us feel very welcome. I can honestly say that I have never stayed anywhere which was so clean and well appointed. My friend and I tried and failed to find any cobwebs! The little touches, like the robes and slippers to use out to the hot tub, and the breakfast bakes and eggs made this jjust so thoughtful. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this lovely place to anyone. In fact we are hoping to visit with our son and his fiancée later in the year if time allows. Thank you Lynn and Nigel you absolutely deserve your 5* rating!
“Amazing, friendly & welcoming building in a lovely rural location”
We had a 4 night break here in February and were really impressed by the property. It's immaculate. Lynn & Nigel are incredibly friendly and welcoming, and provide plenty of essentials on arrival to take the stress away from the first nights food. The chilli was amazing! The location is ideal for walks out in the Peak District, and Nigel will give plenty of advice on walks. The hot tub is lovely - it's immaculately kept and lets you properly relax! We look forward to returning to the barn!
“Relaxing and luxury break”
We all had a lovely relaxing break. So enjoyed Hot Tub! Beautiful country side.. We hope to return soon..
Another 5 star review from us! Our second visit to this magnificent place (seriously undersold by the pictures). We visited for our first anniversary and were relaxed as soon as we arrived; the accommodation is perfect and especially the hot tub! The little touches (dinner – lovely homemade chili, wine, breakfast supplied) just makes this an ideal retreat in an idyllic location where really all you need to do is pack some clothes. So much to do within a short distance away means we’ll keep coming back for years to come!
“Fabulous Self Catering Premises - jewel in the Crown”
We rented this wonderful property with our friends ford a long weekend. It exceeded our expectations and there were many personal touches which our Hosts provided. Hot tub was simply divine
