The huge open space downstairs - cooking, eating, relaxing and the division of the upstairs into 4 bedrooms. Three bathrooms was great for 14 people.

Loads of child friendly places to go with our 5 little girls aged between 2 and 7 in beautiful countryside not too far away. Great open plan area downstairs in Bottomhouse Barn - space for everyone within sight of everyone. The horses at the end of the garden were a great attraction.

We had a fantastic weekend at Bottomhouse Barn. The property was very well equipped and finished to a high standard. The beds were really comfortable. The owners were great too, very welcoming and knowledgeable. The barn is close to the national park with plenty to do nearby. We'd definitely recommend Bottomhouse Barn to anyone.

There was enough space both inside and outside for all of us, 3 families . It was excellent and was just what we needed for the week. It was within travelling distance of a lot of attractions and things to do for the kids.

The barn is beautiful, lovely setting and views and nicely done inside. The layout of the barn is great for large numbers, you can all sit around the dining area and living area. The hot tub was a good touch, definitely advise and is great looking out over the countryside. Would visit again and all of the girls want to book against for next year.

We had a wonderful time at Bottomhouse Barn! It was beautiful accommodation for my hen party and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting in the hot tub looking at the night sky. The kitchen was well equipped and we were able to enjoy lovely meals around our adrenalin-fuelled trip to Alton Towers.

Beautiful living space, long kitchen table was perfect for our party, and sofas and chairs were very comfortable, and wood burner very good. Crockery was very high standard. Bedrooms were all clean and spacious. Bathrooms very clean, and downstairs shower very impressive!

The property was just gorgeous comfortable. The owners were lovely too and very helpful. They had left a birthday card and bottle of wine which was a lovely touch.

Bottom House Barn was excellent; you could not fault anything about it. The decor was very modern and was clean and well presented. The garden was huge and great for the kids to play sports and games and the hot tub was just an added bonus to top off a great place. We had a great family holiday here and will definitely be returning in the future.

The owner is an exceptionally nice chap who was enthusiastic about the property and the beautiful surrounding areas. We were a party of 13 and we made to feel very welcome at the lovely Bottomhouse Barn. The open-plan living area was perfect for entertaining large groups yet sufficiently secluded to have some good fun.

The downstairs space was particularly good for the mixed age group - really good open-plan. The dining table was magnificent and the sofa arrangement meant we could all sit together.

This was the first time we had booked a self-catering property. It worked fantastically well as our baby grandson had plenty of space to crawl about safely and could be put to bed to allow his parents some evening time to relax.
Mrs Brown
January 2009
The price of the cottage and the fact that it was open plan downstairs. The owners were incredibly helpful.
Mrs Wadsworth
April 2009
The Barn is in a good central position to access lots of attractions but far enough away from the towns to still be peaceful. The owner lives at the site and is a mine of information and tips on places to go and see, a very nice man!
Miss Murray

The Mermaid Inn is a 10 min drive away. It is a great pub but ask for a table with a view to avoid disappointment. Re-cycling bins were provided outside the property which was great.

Myself and 12 others stayed here for my sisters hen party and we had an amazing time! The barn is beautiful and has spectacular views, the hot tub is an added bonus! We would highly recommend this barn for families and hen parties, we found a lovely spa in Leek called The Retreat & also great outdoor activities at Carsington water which is only 30 mins away. Perfect location for some relaxation :) The owner was friendly and helpful too.. Thanks again x

Just returned from my daughters Hen weekend. A beautiful property with spectacular views. 15 of us stayed in the beautifully maintained bedrooms. The property was immaculate - so clean. It was decorated and furnished to an extremely high standard. We made good use of the hot tub! Lovely to have a massive table so that we could all sit and eat together. Plenty of seating in the lounge on big comfy leather sofas. Big kitchen equipped with everything you need to cater for that many people. Great garden which suited us as we had loads of games planned outside. Garden surrounded by fields, fantastic views and 2 beautiful ponies who loved to pop their heads over the wall for a fuss. I would definitely recommend this property to groups of friends and families. I would DEFINITELY go back. Thank you.

This property was recommended to us by a colleague and told us that we would not be disappointed with the cottage. The owners were incredibly helpful in every way possibe. They gave us lots of advice of where to find good local restaurants and where to buy fresh local farm produce and take away delivery services. They helped us to light the log burner which was wonderful on a chilly autumn evening. The furnishing and fittings are exceptional and plenty of pot and pans in the kitchen. Mum and dad really loved the Hot Tub and it is maintained daily by the owners. Honestly cannot fault anything. We went out to Ilam and Chatsworth as well as taking a stroll over the stepping stones at Dovedale. The Manifold track is super for biking and for flat walkers. The younger members particularly enjoyed climbing to Thor's Cave. P.S. Thankyou for the complementary bottle of wine it was a good start to our lovely week away in the country.

Welcomed with wine and a tour, and of course instructions on how to use the hot tub (make sure you book this as part of your stay!)and we were all set. The accommodation was perfect, lots of space, bathrooms and a huge fridge, including a seperate wine fridge...for my hen do it couldn't have been better. We went out for a meal but to be honest we had all we needed in the barn, and the takeaway Chinese was excellent!|We only left to go to alton Towers, a perfect way to clear any hangovers! The hot tub was by far the highlight, we couldn't use it enough...if I had one least favourite bit it would be that the beds were a bit uncomfortable - but us girls are all looking forward to our hot tub reunion!!!

The owner of the cottage was very accommodating and advised us of all the activities we could do in the local area. The kids loved the quad-biking and cycling. The owner also advised us to shop online for groceries to be delivered to the cottage which was an excellent idea as when we arrived the shopping was in their bags waiting for us. The cottage itself was very spacious - there were 15 of us. This cottage is like a tardis, very deceiving from the outside. The grounds were lovely and the shops were very close by car (Morrisons, Asda, Wilkinsons, etc.). The best things I liked about this cottage was the facility for us all to dine together at the huge dining table, then stick everything in the dishwasher, the big leather sofas in the lounge, the wetroom on the ground floor and the hot tub. The least thing I liked about the cottage was the size of the barbeque - the cottage sleeps 15 people so to provide a barbeque that can only hold 6 small chicken drumsticks at a time is beyond me - we didn't bother to use it in the end and just used the ovens.
