A spacious and comfortable home from home. Great attention to detail. Loved the underfloor heating. You won't be disappointed.

We loved our stay at Closes Barn and would definitely return! The location was fantastic! We visited with two dogs and a two year old, the owners had thought of everything to ensure that our stay was more than enjoyable. Thank you for such a lovely stay.

It was in a nice setting and area. We wanted a ' chilling ' weekend overall which was definitely achieved due to the fantastic barn conversion. It far exceeded our expectations, we will be going again for sure.

The accommodation was outstanding. The Barn was much bigger than it looked from the photos and there was plenty of space. The quality of the fixtures and fittings was very high and we really enjoyed our stay.

The Barn was an ideal family getaway, with lots of amazing walks in the local area. It was very dog friendly which is rare for such a high spec holiday rental.

The property was absolutely superb, it really did have everything we could need. The furnishings and facilities are of a very high standard, we loved the showers! It was wonderful to have the added bonus of watching the horses at the stables. I would recommend Closes Barn very highly.

Very clean and modern and liked the local information pack that was left. A great space for a group gathering.

Closes Barn was an excellent place to stay for the 7 of us. There was plenty of space and it was done out to a very high specification. There was loads to go and see roundabout and my 18 month old loved seeing the donkeys and horses in the surrounding fields. There was a lot of outdoor space to enjoy and a pool table to keep the nieces entertained. There was everything we needed for a family of 7 over Easter week. We would most definitely recommend this barn to friends, we had a lovely time.

Lovely barn conversion. We went there with extended family for a birthday celebration and had a lovely time. Great facilities in the barn. Would definitely recommend to all.

The Barn is a beautiful conversion - the bedrooms, in particular, are wonderful (don't think the photos on the website do the property its full justice!). We arrived after a heavy snowfall, quite a harrowing journey, to find this Christmas card setting before us. On opening the door the first thing that hit us was how nice warm the place was and then how welcoming it felt. The property is more than adequately equipped and I don't think there was anything we required that wasn't already there.

Beautiful holiday cottage. Love having four en suite bathrooms. Setting was ideal and it was nice for our four year old to wake up and see horses out of her window. Owners were lovely too.

An excellent property.

We all loved the family cottage. It had everything we could want. It was situated very close to all attractions and shops. The views from the cottage were fabulous. The stables to the rear of the cottage gave us all something to smile about. Friendly people to welcome us. Excellent.

Myself and 3 female friends stayed here for a long weekend as a pre Christmas break. The barn is spacious, well decorated and fully equipped. The beds and furniture were very comfortable. The main reason for choosing this property was that it had 4 bedrooms all ensuite. The facilities did not disappoint. It was lovely being surrounded by the farm with the horses and the donkeys. It's only a short drive away from Ashbourne, Carsington Water and many other local attractions. We couldn't have asked for anymore (except for a pub within walking distance!) A few minor gripes (and they are minor as I've still rated this as excellent) It took 3 attempts to contact the owner for the key safe code. 2 voice mail messages were not returned. The owners did not check on us during the stay just to say a quick hello and make sure we were happy. There could have been more information in the folder about what items of rubbish to put in which wheelie bin and about how the heating worked. Would love to stay here again.

Lovely, cosy cottage with fabulous countryside on the doorstep. The 4 bedrooms were all really pleasant and a good size. There was underfloor heating all through the property with radiators in the bedrooms to make them extra warm. Please note thought that two of the bedrooms only had Velux Windows so no view to be had, just open for fresh air! The bedrooms were 2 double, one King and one twin room, all with lovely ensuites. The beds, for me, were a little on the firm side but pillows were very comfy. The kitchen was relatively well stocked with utensils although could have benefitted from a really large pan or big wok as I was cooking for six hungry people! And some extra wooden spoons! For the beer drinkers we could have done with some pint glasses, but the cupboard was well stocked with glasses for wine and soft drinks. The view from one side of the cottage is of rolling country side whilst the other side has a view of a farm yard and stables that housed a vociferous horse, that liked to let you know he was awake, even if you aren't! But it clearly states in the description that this is a working farm and it's in the countryside which is full of unusual noises. You do however get people walking by the windows in the yard which is a little disconcerting early in the morning. If you have or love horses then this is definitely the place for you. Would we go again, yes I think we would for a couple of nights stay! Oh and there was excellent wifi coverage throughout the whole of the property.

We had a lovely, if cold and very windy, stay at closes barn. The accommodation was fantastic for a big family get together. The facilities for young children were great and included cot linen as well as a nice selection of toys. The barn was spotless and well equipped. We encountered a slight problem when tv reception was lost due to the aerial being blown off the roof but no sooner had we mentioned than it was sorted by the lovely and helpful owner. The area was great and well placed for all the major visitor attractions. Ilam and dovedale was a real highlight.

We stayed here with a large family group and it was perfect. Large airy bedrooms and a well kitted out kitchen and living/dining room made it a pleasure for us all. We did not take any toys for the children so were very pleased to find a huge selection for them to play with had been provided, along with cot, high-chair and stair-gate, making this perfect for a stay with children. The barn was clean and beautifully decorated with wonderful en-suite bathrooms in all bedrooms. It also has good wifi which was really helpful. Our only comment (not a complaint) is that a guide as how to use all the electrical equipment would have been helpful. We spent quite a while trying to figure out how to use the washer/dyer machine and had to resort to looking up a user manual online.

Came here with my extended family in April 2015. OK I'm going to start with the bad and then finish on the good, as they outweigh the bad points and its a better way to finish. Bad - Communication from the owners was non-existent before arriving, could not get them on the phone and couldn't get them to respond to messages left, ended up just turning up on the day and hoping for the best. If we didn't need a key code to get the keys a key code for the gate and a code for the wifi this wouldn't even be an issue, but as we did it was (please note this only really had an impact on me and my wife as we arranged the cottage, the other guests had no part of this so had nothing bad to say about it) Second bad point, the gate to the cottage is keep locked by a padlock and chain so getting out of the car, unlocking the gate, driving in, getting out and locking it again then driving down to the cottage is a pain. I understand why its there (it is a working stables) but its not a great system (older people or those with disabilities/mobility issues might find this a massive pain). That's it, those are the bad points done. I have absolutely nothing else bad to say about this place whatsoever. Decor, lovely, modern but inviting, all the mod cons you could really need; wifi worked fine, full central heating, amazing showers/en suites in all rooms, two batch for those who need them. Kids are well provided for with a travel cot, linen, a high chair, cutlery etc and a bunch of toys that have been left there probably from the owners kids (but absolutley fine for a toddler to get engrossed in). All the bedrooms are spacious, all have comfy beds, clean linen, towels, lots of wardrobe/drawer space. The dining area is huge and comfy and the lounge area is spacious with comfy sofas. Kitchen is fully equipped (including a dishwasher and washer dryer) not sure there was anything we though it needed that was missing, and there is a cage for a dog assuming you have an unruly one that needs it. Outside is a decking area for sunny days a small bbq area and a pool table under a shelter. Plenty of parking and the surroundings are very pleasant. Just far enough away from civilization to be quiet but about a 15 mi drive to Ashbourne for supplies. Should you stay here, yep I think so, it's lovely and the moan at the beginning was probably a one off, I certainly do not think it warrants missing out on this lovely holiday cottage.

This was an excellent property and more than lived up to expectations. We were a group of extended family and friends and it suited our requirements perfectly. We were provided with a travel cot and generous bedding for it, stairgate and high chair and the adults were equally well catered for with beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms. Our two year old particularly appreciated "horse television" right on the doorstep. We didn't take our dog in the end, but he would have been well provided for too. We hope to return!

Closes Barn was warm and cosy. The showers were excellent and the beds were very comfortable. Everything that you could possibly need is provided for. It was particularly well kitted out for my 18 month old niece. We all absolutely loved the property and agree that it is one of the best places that we have stayed in.

We had a lovely week in Closes Barn, plenty of space for our party. All bedrooms being en-suite was an added bonus. We would highly recommend the accommodation and there is plenty to do in the area.
