Dover Barn Family Cottage description

Holiday home
Dover Barn is a single-storey semi-detached cottage on the owners' farm a couple of miles from Parwich in the Peak District National Park. The cottage has a double and a twin, and a family bathroom. The kitchen has a dining area, and there is a sitting room with electric stove. Outside is off road parking for two cars, a front sitting-out area and an additional shared sitting area down by the donkey paddock. Dover Barn is very well placed for enjoying the walking and cycling of the area, including the Tissington Trail, and also for the area's historic houses, theme parks, villages and towns.

The lovely old village of Parwich is surrounded by beautiful countryside and dates back to the Saxon times, although there is evidence of a Roman farm at Roystone Grange nearby. Parwich has a village green, public house and a church as well as a post office with a general store. Cyclists and walkers will be well occupied with the lovely walks and paths in the area, one of them being the Manifold Trail which follows the Leek to Manifold light railway. There are many pretty villages within easy reach. Ilam, Alstonefield and Brassington all have an interesting past waiting to be discovered. With so much to offer in the way of sightseeing and outdoor activities, this peaceful area makes a great holiday base for all ages.

The ultimate in "year-round" appeal, the Peak District offers countryside, picturesque villages and magnificent scenery. It touches upon six counties and encloses 555 square miles of open moorland, flowing rivers, and wooded dales.

Electric central heating with electric stove in sitting room. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, TV with Freeview, DVD, WiFi. Electricity inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Off road parking for 2 cars. Front seating area and shared seating area next to donkey paddock. Sorry, no pets and no smoking. Shop and pub 2 miles.

Lovely place, very friendly and helpful owners. Perfect for children.
Miss Thomas

Lovely surroundings and lovely people, not too far away from the main road to be able to get to such lovely places like Bakewell, Chatsworth House, Matlock and Dovedale etc.

Our second visit and will not be our last. It was peaceful and restful, definitely on our favourites list!

The cottage was warm with a comfortable bed had all that we needed - an added bonus was the abundant bird life with woodpeckers through the windows! The friendly owners, the donkeys and the quiet surroundings made for a restful break - excellent!
Mrs Rhodes

Had welcoming and helpful hosts, and it was in beautiful peaceful countryside. Everything in the cottage is new, efficient and sparklingly clean. Wish we lived nearer and could visit regularly.

As the property was such an excellent standard throughout and so very comfortable it made the holiday all the more special. A great place to come back to after a busy day out exploring the area. Much more to do and see than we initially thought. Would recommend this property and the area.

A fabulous cottage - clean and cosy.

Dover Barn is a lovely cottage. It's well maintained, spotlessly clean and deceptively spacious. It's centrally located for accessing all the popular destinations of the Peak District. It was ideal for us, as it was close to the easier cycling routes of the Monsal, Manifold and Tissington Trails. The latter being less than a mile away! Would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a good value, rural getaway.

Very comfortable barn conversion which perfectly suited my needs as a base for the week. Well equipped kitchen. Good quiet location 0.5 miles off the A515. Excellent WiFi.

The cottage was lovely and lived up to its description online. The owners were very pleasant - came and found us when we got lost!

The second time we have been to Dover Barn, and already planning next years visit. It's ideal for mum who can't manage steps due to arthritis. The owners are there if needed, but as everything is provided we didn't need anything. Very friendly too. As far as we are concerned there is nothing to improve; in fact mum isn't interested in trying anywhere else.
Mr Dymond

The cottage was clean, warm and comfortable, all one could ask for. The owners were very helpful and the accommodation was first class.

Dover Barn is a lovely cottage which is really well equipped; it is situated close to many beauty spots and Alton Towers. The owners are friendly.
Mr Cooper
May 2013
This was one of the best small cottages we have stayed in over the past 30 plus years. It gave us everything we needed. Perfectly placed for exploring the southern half of the Peak District as well as areas of Staffordshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire nearby. We would recommend it to anyone not wanting the attractions of town life on their doorstep.
Mrs Whittaker

December 2013
We had Xmas week and could not have had a better choice of cottage. Utmost peace and quiet on lovely farm. Weather was changeable but the cottage remained cosy and warm. We will certainly be returning One small suggestion could be for a radio for guests. Thank you Irene and Tom for this lovely week

A stone cottage in a remote part of the Derbyshire Dales. The cottage is superbly furnished and extremely comfortable. The owners are very friendly and the whole atmosphere is one of peace and quiet. The cottage is ideally located for exploring the Dales and the many interesting places in the area. Thoroughly recommended to anyone wanting a quiet holiday away from the madding crowd.
Mrs Jackson

This is the fourth time we have been to this property, which probably speaks for itself. Very comfortable, very peaceful, has everything we need, a perfect base for a few days holiday in the Peak District.
