This old barn has been beautifully crafted to be stylish and comfortable on the inside whilst still rustic on the outside. Follow a long bumpy track to the old farm, built of pink Birchover Gritstone. Well-travelled owners Rachael and Gerry came to live here, along with children, dogs and horses, after living and working in Hong Kong, and have renovated the barn for guests. Heaps of handy touches – underfloor heating, huge wood-burner in the sitting room, pretty Shaker-style kitchen and a neatly laid terrace with barbecue. A Chinese table picked up in the Far East, blue and white vases and a jolly tribal rug add character and colour. Up the steep stairs, the main bedroom is glorious – sit up in bed and look through the arched window at fields and dry stone walls. The bathrooms have drenching walk-in showers, plus a bath in the en-suite for the twin room. Walks are straight from the door, past the important megalithic rocking stone – keep going for miles of stunning rocks and tors. A short stroll takes you to good eating places including a micro-brewery. Heaps to do further afield – Bakewell, Haddon Hall, Chatsworth.
