A beautiful property, really light and spacious, lovely for a relaxing few days to chill out in, and with the added bonus of the pool table. Just perfect.

All our boxes were ticked! Beautiful cottage, good location and plenty of walks from the door. There were quality places to eat nearby, reasonable weather for the time of year, an enclosed area for the dogs and very friendly and helpful owners. What more could you ask for!

Brookley Barn is a perfectly situated holiday cottage in the heart of the beautiful hamlet of Windley. Ideal for families with small children, or couples seeking a romantic getaway the interior is beautifully laid out and every need is catered for. We loved going for long walks in the beautiful nearby countryside, then returning to cook dinner in the well equipped kitchen, with the log fire burning. There are also some great places to eat out nearby. The little touches when you arrive are lovely - such as 6 fresh eggs waiting for you from the farm, plus fresh milk and tea and coffee. The owners and their family made us feel so welcome and are lovely genuine people, who work hard to ensure you have everything you need, nothing was too much trouble. Everything was perfect. Our 4 year old loved the chickens, cows and pigs in the 'garden' and the dinner table that turned into a pool table. We have already booked our next trip back to Brookley Barn, and I'm sure there will be many more to come. A special thank you goes to Mr Taylor who is a real farmer, a hard grafter and a true gentleman.

Brookley Barn is a lovely, well equipped holiday home with everything you could possibly need during your stay. The owners are helpful and very friendly. The location is great, very quiet but not far from many tourist attractions. There were lots of pleasant walks direct from the property so you don't need to drive every day. We loved watching all the livestock at the farm, there were plenty of baby animals to entertain us.

Miss Fletcher
May 2014
After several cottage holidays in the last few years, this is without doubt the best we have stayed in. The welcome from the owners was very good nothing was too much trouble for them. It was great to see the orphan lambs in the orchard next to the patio worth waking early to see the cows fighting for position to get to the fields! It was ideally situated for Carsington, Ashbourne, Belper etc. and not too far to go for places like Melbourne and the marvellous Dragon pub in Willington. Hope to visit again!

We stayed at Brookley Barn for a week from the 8th May and thoroughly enjoyed our break.The cottage was lovely, so spacious and very well equipped. Fresh milk and eggs in the fridge and a very friendly welcome from the owners who lived at the farm next door. We loved to watch the comings and goings of the farm animals especially the donkey who thought he was a cow! This cottage is so well positioned for walking and is close to several good pubs.Just a short distance by car to Belper and Ashbourne for shopping. Enjoyed walking around Carsington Water and along Tissington Trail then returning to our very cosy holiday home. Would love to visit again as one week was not long enough to explore all the local places of interest.
February 2015
Stayed here from 6th - 9th feb '15 and cant fault anything. You are literally on the farm. Fresh milk and eggs in the fridge when we got there. Logs and fire set up ready to be lit. The cottage is very modern and warm. Sky TV was a plus aswell. Kitchen had everything you could need. The owner was right at hand should you need anything. Me and my partner booked this for a relaxing break away and when we got there we only left to go to the nearby shops. Would highly recommend and likely be back again in future!
May 2014
Stayed in this accommodation for one week with my eleven year in feb. What a place,every thing was perfect...even washing up liquid, dish-washer tablets and milk in the fridge. Place was immaculately clean and even the log fire was set up to go. Accommodation is on a working farm and the farmers relatives even took my son out to play and show around the farm. The barn is stocked with all essentials if weather is poor and the best by far is the full sized pool table! Yes the lounge table converts to a full size proper pool table. Bad news is that by the end of the week my son was beating me! lol. Would highly recommend as all rooms are large, property has full central heating and the attention to detail is superb!

The cottage was beautifully designed and maintained. Everything one could wish for for was waiting for us. The hosts were wonderful, made us very welcome. The area is lovely, great walks and many of the lovely sites that Derbyshire have to offer are easily accessible. Do yourselves a favour and book a week at Brookley Barn, you will not regret it.
October 2013
Brookley Barn is a pretty cottage to enjoy your holiday. The atmosphere at the farm is very casual but not intrusive. There is always someone who wants a friendly chat or you wants to show you around the farm. Children will have a great time here. Keep in mind that Brookley Barn is on a working farm. There are cows and chickens wandering around, the pig's are nearby, there are dogs and cats who love attention. But it is a tidy farm and the animals also know their place. They will not be of any inconvenience, we have just utterly enjoyed it. The cottage itself is complete and very neat. Nearby there is plenty to do and see. Definitely recommended!
