Miss H

Barn was lovely. Great social space in lounge and kitchen. Perfect for groups of friends.

The Long Barn is a very well-equipped, high standard cottage with plenty of space and facilities for large groups. The location in terms of views of the countryside is stunning and the owner is very helpful whilst still respecting the guests' privacy. The hot tub is a very welcome addition. We would have loved to have stayed longer and would happily come back again and recommend to anyone.

Excellent property, spacious luxury-feel accommodation. Plenty of space even when at capacity - 12 in our group including babies, preschoolers pre-teens and 30-somethings - and we didnt feel at all cramped even with travel cots in rooms. The hot tub is the icing on a very lovely cake. Would recommend without hesitation and hope to return in the future.

This is a lovely barn in a good location for exploring the area. The barn is well equipt and smartly presented and the hot tub is lovely after a busy day. Lots of food shops within 5 mins drive. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Plenty of space and all bedrooms are en-suit so great for a large group, we had 8 adults and 2 babies and it still didn't feel over crowded.

This is a beautiful converted barn, extremely well decorated to a very high standard. very modern and spacious. The location is central to accomodate all visitors tastes from walking, cycling to rollercoaster rides at Alton Towers. We had a wonderful few days here.

One of the best holiday cottages we have ever stayed in. With 4 large double en-suite bedrooms, a huge lounge and kitchen-diner, all furnished to a very high standard , it is ideal for large family get-togethers.Together with beautiful views over the countryside and the breath-taking scenery of the whole of the Peak District nearby, our family would have no hestitation in recommending it to anyone.
