Church Barn Countryside Cottage description

Holiday home
Church Barn is a traditional, detached, stone barn conversion set in the owners' grounds in the village of Fenny Bentley just two miles from Ashbourne in the Peak District. The cottage is perfect for a couple as it has one double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and an open plan living area with a kitchen, a dining area and a sitting room with a woodburning stove. Outside the cottage is off road parking for two cars, bike storage and a lawned garden with outdoor furniture and a barbecue. With access to good walking and cycle routes directly from the property, and with the market town of Ashbourne, Alton Towers Theme Park and the rest of the Peak District within easy reach, there is so much to enjoy at Church Barn.

Mr Irvine
January 2016
This is a really cosy cottage! The owner could not have been more helpful and yet completely unobtrusive. He even fixed my car for me! Highly recommended.
Mr Robinson
August 2015
It was cosy, comfortable, warm and inviting with a very friendly and welcoming host. In a great location with walks from the door, really good local restaurant and a bus stop within 100 yards. A little gem of a cottage. We look forward to returning.

The owner was most friendly, welcoming and informative. We enjoyed the setting of the property in attractive rural surroundings near the interesting medieval parish church. We liked the warmth, comfort and coziness of the cottage. We felt the barn conversion had been very well carried out.

The cottage was lovely, comfortable and cosy. The central heating kept it so warm that we did not need to use the wood burning fire. The owner, was very welcoming and made us feel right at home. The cottage is well located for walks in the beautiful Derbyshire Peak District, one of which passes right by the property, and for the local village pub which is about 100 yards walk away. A very peaceful and relaxing spot to have a break.

The owner gave me a warm welcome. The cottage was lovely and the garden beyond expectation. There was some noise from the nearby main road, but the situation was very peaceful. There was access to lovely walking country and remarkable scenery.

The accommodation was ideal for 2 people and fitted out to a very good standard. The whole place made you feel very comfortable. The garden was lovely and it was great to be able to dine alfresco. There was a great pub with really good restaurant very close by. A wonderful location with good walks from the doorstep. We would definitely return to this cottage.

The cottage was situated in a lovely quiet location with it's own private garden and the property owner who lives next door was very friendly and helpful. There is a pub just 2 minutes walk from the cottage which serves excellent food, with very friendly staff. There are plenty of excellent places to visit just a few miles away and lovely walks, especially at Dovedale.

Excellent cottage for two people. Ideal for walking the Peak District. Good off road parking and property was easy to access being just off the main road. There are also plenty of local pubs.
Mrs Priest

All excellent! This was our third visit, everything is catered for. The little cottage is cosy clean and has a relaxing atmosphere. It has a nice private garden and it makes the best of its compact space - just fine for two people. The bus stop and fantastic pub a very short walk away couldn't be more convenient. We hope we'll be back!

Mrs Blanning

Cottage had everything we needed for our holiday. The private garden was perfect as we were able to make full use of it, and after buying bird food, we had a really good selection of birds visiting us every day, including a woodpecker. We particularly liked the fact that there was a good pub and restaurant only two minutes walk away.

The cottage was small and cosy just what we wanted. It had everything we needed and more. The owners were lovely and very welcoming while totally giving us our own space. The local pub was a beautiful country pub with log burners and served great food. We will be visiting this cottage again and have already recommended it to friends and family.

The cottage was ideal for a couple - well presented, very clean, and very well equipped. It is one of the best properties we have used. The location was excellent and the property had a private garden which was a bonus. The owners were friendly, welcoming and helpful. We hope to go again soon!

Location is excellent for all the things we wanted to do in a 25 mile radius. The owners went the extra mile in making us feel welcome, even to the extent of providing us with a home made apple crumble one evening.

This is an excellent cottage, delightful with large garden space. A 'home from home'. Lovely hosts; informative, very helpful and we were their first 'Sykes' customer! Plenty of leaflets of places to go. Good local walks (Dovedale). There is nothing more to add; everything was first class.

Small but beautifully formed. This cottage is perfect for two people to enjoy a wonderful holiday in fabulous surroundings. The owner Ken could not have been more helpful, everything worked and we relaxed completely. The walking is great both from the door and from a short drive away. We would not hesitate to recommend it.

The owner ,Ken, was very welcoming and explained all about the Barn, and what we could do around the location. An excellent holiday home for two and very well equipt. Well situated for exploring the surrounding countryside.

We were made extremely welcome on arrival by the owner Ken who quickly went through the salient points of the accommodation including how to work the log burning stove. However, despite the fact that we were there in November, the central heating in the barn was so effective we did not need to use the log burner. The barn, although not large, has been converted to a very high standard and is ideal for 2 people. It is situated in a lovely quiet spot with the village church on one side and a small field containing sheep on the other. A footpath leads directly from the property onto the Tissington Trail in one direction and the lovely village pub in the other. Ideally situated close to the pretty town of Ashbourne it is also perfect for anyone wanting a walking holiday in the glorious Peak District.

A first class cottage with a welcoming atmosphere, a lovely garden and with the owner next door a safe and secure feeling. The owner is friendly and helpful but keeps out of the way. The location is perfect for visiting the Peak district and ideal for just relaxing.

We have stayed in many cottages over the years but can honestly say that the owners were the friendliest and most helpful we have ever come across. Super location, loads of walking from door and added bonus of pub just across the road serving good food!
Mr Crosley

Church cottage was a very cosy, although very small. The memory foam mattress was fabulously comfortable and the opportunity to have a hot bath at the end of a long walk was an absolute luxury.
