Warm, welcoming friendly accommodation with the owners at hand if needed. Location is perfect for walking and the local pub The Bulls Head is friendly and serves excellent food. Had a fantastic holiday at Spingle Barn!!!
Mrs Benneworth
August 2014
The property was, as stated, fantastic with a welcome pack. The location was superb with walking routes from the doorstep or 10 minutes to Bakewell in the car. Lots to see and do for the whole week without having to travel for more than 15-20 minutes.

Gorgeous barn which was very well equipped. It had a very homely feel and we were very comfortable there. We were left a bottle of wine, fruit, fresh bread, eggs and milk and a home made cake. Very nice touch. Loved the place
Mrs Bailey

Spingle Barn was a wonderful place to stay. We were greeted on arrival with a blazing log burner and superb welcome pack. The house never felt cold in spite of the weather as there was also underfloor heating. The rooms were all spacious and the beds huge and really comfortable.
Mrs Hardy
August 2013
The accommodation was just lovely, very clean, spacious and modern. The owners have thought of everything. We loved the location and the privacy the owners gave us, but at the same time they were on hand and very approachable and helpful when we called on them. Had a really lovely family holiday. We would definitely like to return sometime in the future and will recommend to our friends.
Mr Appleton

Mrs Hare

The house was fantastic, best I've ever stayed in. It was so welcoming. The log burner was burning, it was beautiful. Could not fault it at all. Would love to stay there again.
Mrs Mann
September 2012
The welcome pack on arrival was very good. The owners were available but unobtrusive, so that was good. Liked the excellent pub in the village, only a 5 minute walk away. Liked the fact you have easy access to the computer.
Mr Brittain
September 2012
The location was excellent and the accommodation was fine and provided all we needed for our family gathering. Pub within walking distance was a bonus as was the owners being on hand for minor problems.
Mrs Reay
August 2012
Quiet, peacefully positioned and well placed for visiting other areas. Nice touch with the welcome pack, beds were really comfy and very spacious.
Mrs Kern
July 2012
A stunning place, spotless inside and immaculately decorated with furnishings to a very high spec. We had been left some lovely welcome items such as cake, local sausages and wine etc. A lovely touch. Lovely places to visit nearby, good for long walks etc. Would definitely revisit.
Ms Edgar
July 2012
The barn was gorgeous and in a beautiful location. The village pub, The Bulls Head, did great good value meals which had generous portions and were delicious. Everyone was so friendly. We also bought free range farm eggs from the village. The owners of Spingle Barn were unobtrusive but always helpful when we asked questions. The welcome pack was the best we've ever had in over 30 years of self catering cottage holidays throughout Great Britain. 10 out of 10, couldn't fault a thing. Well Done to the owners. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends and we hope to return some time.
Mr Carr
June 2012
The cottage was ideal and well laid out for a large family get together. Being walking distance to a pub that served good food was a bonus.
Mr Markham
July 2012
Spingle Barn was without doubt the best holiday property we have ever stayed in. The owners were helpful but didn't intrude. We were left a wonderful welcome pack with homemade cake and bread. Just everything was perfect. I would certainly recommend anyone to go to this property for a very special holiday.
Mr Thornhill
April 2012
This was by far the best cottage we have had in 15 years of holidaying. Our first time in the Peak District. I got a gold star from the rest of my party for finding and booking this cottage!
May 2012
Brilliant welcome pack, friendly owners, and great weather. Lovely location and most of all a very high standard barn conversion!
Mrs Ryan
January 2012
Spingle Barn is a beautiful conversion which has been done to a very high standard throughout with good quality furnishings, very comfortable beds and more than enough crockery and utensils. It's set in a good location with an excellent pub within easy walking distance. We were a group of eight adults with a toddler, a baby and 2 dogs and the barn had ample seating in the lounge/ dining areas to easily accommodate all of us and with an en-suite in each bedroom plus a main bathroom, we never once had to queue for a toilet. We would have no hesitation recommending the property to anyone.
Mrs Mansfield
January 2012
Spingle Barn has been done to a high specification giving the best quality and comfort for your holiday. The owners were very helpful both prior to arrival and when we arrived. The welcome pack was very thoughtful. We had a wonderful family christmas in a wonderful place.
Mrs Adcock

Mr Lowery
October 2011
A beautiful, well equipped and clean barn conversion. This was the ideal property and location for our family get together and visiting the Peak District. The owners were very friendly and provided an excellent welcome pack to get our holiday off to the perfect start. The booking system with Sykes was efficient and faultless.
Mr Gooch

Mrs Driver
September 2011
The accommodation was excellent throughout with lots of very thoughtful touches. We received a very warm welcome on arrival and the owner of Spingle Barn provided us with a lovely welcome pack and a vase of fresh flowers. We will definitely book again and would recommend it to all our family and friends. The owners have managed to make this barn conversion a very warm and special place.

Stayed here for four days in October to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary, we were a group of 11, the sleeping arrangements were no problem as you could choose the layout of the bedrooms before we arrived we found this very helpful there is five bathrooms so no problems there a large living area where we could all relax and a huge dinning table which allowed us a to sit together and eat. Would highly recommend this cottage for large groups.
Mrs Langley
June 2011
The barn was ideally situated for travel to all the places we like to visit. The walks were excellent and the fact there was a pub just a short walk away, made it ideal for us. We would definitely use it again.
September 2016
On the surface, this barn has been very well converted. All the bedrooms are reasonably comfortable and have en-suites, the kitchen is well-equipped and the garden area is good. Unfortunately we felt that some basic provision had been overlooked to make way for the luxury. There were no hooks or shelves in the bathrooms or bedrooms and so towels and wash bags had to go on the floor. There was a small wardrobe in each room but no drawer units, which meant we had nowhere to put our clothes and lived out of our suitcases. The barn does not have a lobby area so there was nowhere to put wet coats or shoes. We felt a barn conversion can do without underfloor heating. We also found the motion sensor lighting and extractor fans rather annoying, especially at night. We have stayed in many barns over many years and were quite disappointed in this one.
July 2016
We have just returned from a lovely stay at Spingle Barn. The barn is in a perfect central location for touring the entire Peak District. It is furnished to a high standard and the beds are huge and very comfortable. We loved the American style fridge with built in ice maker and the well kept outdoor space. The family bedroom is particularly nice with plenty of space for a family of four to sleep. There is a nice village pub 5 minutes walk away with a decent childrens play area and garden. We would certainly return next time we visit the area.

Our second visit, for a week this time, and the barn is just as good as our first visit last November. The welcome pack of homemade bread, cake, milk, etc, all great. We had a great week of weather, making the stay even more enjoyable and we used the outside space. A great base for seeing Derbyshire and the local pub is great. The only person pleased to come home was the dog so he could have a rest from all the walking. At the barn they are planning a new patio and grass area giving the barn even more outside space. May have to have another visit to see this when it is finished. Would have no hesitation in recommending to barn to anyone and excellent value for money! Thanks you for a great holiday!

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the excellent Spingle Barn. The accommodation was faultless, with every mod con going and more! Even though it was November, the under floor heating kept the barn lovely and cosy, and once we had lit the log burner it was tropical! The food pack of eggs, milk, home baked bread and cake was great. The kitchen facilities were excellent. The living area was spacious with more than enough room for 8 of us plus the dog! The dining table easily accommodated us all too! All the bedrooms were spacious with TV's. Spingle Barn was easy to find, with an excellent pub 5 minutes walk down the road. A definite 10 out of 10 and we will hopefully be making a return visit next year.
April 2014
facilities very good very clean and comfortable it offered everything we needed for a supberb cosy winter break
April 2014
Our family group's ages ranged from 18 to 84 and we found this barn conversion perfect for our holiday. We loved the layout of Spingle Barn, and we were very impressed with how well equipped it was. This area of The Peak District was really lovely. We had some fantastic walks and also less energetic visits to local tea shops and tourist places.

What more can you say? A truly excellent property, with everything you could want in a holiday home. Very high standard & comfortable for the full party of 8 adults. The TVs in every room, wifi & the computer provided with all of the local attractions stored on the desktop - what more could you want! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

We had previously stayed at Spingle Barn in October 2012 and were very impressed by it. I'm pleased to say that our second visit was just as impressive. Blinds had been replaced by gorgeous shutters in the dining area and there was a new huge corner seating unit and a new reclining chair in the lounge area. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and very welcoming. Again, we were amazed at how well-equipped the kitchen was - one of our party enjoys cooking and she was in her element trying (but failing) to use every implement provided! There is so much to do in the local area - on 2 visits we have only scratched the surface. We will be returning, but to our dismay it will not be until 2015 due to other commitments during 2014. I could go on for ever, but the best recommendation is for you to stay at Spingle Barn - I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
September 2013
Our second visit to Spingle barn , Just as good as the first , lovely welcome pack flowers , a yummy choclate cake , wine etc , a great start to our family holiday ! Take a stair gate if you have toddlers , but appart from that everthing is First class , there's even a computer !

The house never felt cold in spite of the weather as there was also underfloor heating. The rooms were all spacious and the beds huge and really comfortable. We found the computer provided with internet access very useful. We had an excellent meal at the local pub, a few minutes walk away. For a fabulous walk, take the Monsal Trail between Bakewell and Millers Dale.

We spent four relaxing and highly enjoyable days at Spingle Barn. It completely lived up to expectations, luxurious and well appointed, up-to-date technology and beautiful bathrooms in every bedroom. All four bedrooms are excellent, two on the ground floor, two upstairs. We highly recommend this property. The owners made a very generous gesture, providing us with a quite unexpected welcome pack! We won't spoil the surprise! The only downside is having to vacate at 9.30am not, as expected, at 10am. The Bulls Head has a good to very good modern restaurant, although the rest of the pub was a bit dingy. We found a great Indian restaurant in Bakewell called Raja's and the food was outstanding.
April 2013
I stayed here for a week in April 2013, with my extended family (4 family 'units') 3 small children and our Labrador were included! The Barn is beautiful and finished to high standard. We had the pleasure of the master bedroom as we had the largest family unit (myself and my husband, and our 4 and 2 year old) and the master bedroom was perfect for us as we had an ensuite bath, and a couch for early morning TV! (although the bed was massive and the kids were in with us every morning!) The living area is roomy but cosy at the same time, and we sat at the fire every evening after enjoying a feast together at the dining table. The Barn is a short walk from a local pub which is very friendly and serves ok 'pub grub' There is also a fab play park attached to the beer garden. We drove to Bakewell (approx. 15 mins drive) several days as it had lots of beautiful shops /cafes / pubs and we used the coop for groceries. We also drove to Dovedale to go on a family walk which was beautiful and highly recommended. The heights of Abraham and cable car ride is recommended too. The weather was pretty awful when we visiting so we didn't get much use of the garden unfortunately. The owners were very helpful and made us a chocolate cake and left us wine/milk/eggs for arriving. Thoroughly enjoyable and would recommended to large groups of friends/families. I have no negative comments, but one of the group had a crawling baby and they found the stone floors/stairs unnerving but there were enough of us around to keep a close eye on the little one.
January 2013
Having holidayed in this country during the Christmas / New year period for the last 10 years, I can honestly say that this spectacular barn conversion is without doubt the very best my family has stayed in. Extremely friendly & helpful owners, immaculately clean, and superbly equipped. We do not hesitate to recommend and we will most definitely return. Huge thanks to Garry & Andrea, the barn is a credit to you and your obvious hard work. The Robinsons wish you every success for the future.

The 6 of us holiday together for a week every October. This was the first time in Derbyshire and we will definitely be returning. Spingle Barn was exceptional. When we arrived the log burner was roaring and the heating was on making the barn warm and very cosy. Everywhere was clean, the furniture and furnishings were beautiful, the kitchen extremely well-equipped and the welcome pack included a home-baked cake and home-made bread. Our every wish had been catered for. All of our criteria was met, indeed exceeded, by Spingle Barn - and that is not an easy task! We ate at the local pub, which was excellent and the staff were all very friendly. In short, we cannot recommend Spingle Barn enough. We will be returning!
Chris Hare
December 2012
Owners were always on hand if you needed them.Welcoming pack for when you arrived bread,eggs,bacon, cake,milk,orange juice and more.Also some lovely flowers. The house was fantastic everything you could wish for.Lovely log burner going when we arrived. Just a little village a fantastic old pub just a few minutes down the road with great food.Never had anything like it. Didnt want to leave.
December 2012
We received the stay an Spingle Barn as a Brithday gift with a family group of 8 people age range 6 week to 84. The facilities were absolutely first class and we had a relaxing pre christmas stay, the general feeling from the family was that we should do the same again next year. The owners had added to the christmas spirit providing tasteful Christmas decorations both inside and out the only complaint is they didn't provide a light dusting of snow to complete the magic. The welcome pack was to a very high and personal standard with home baked bread and to the joy of one little girl an excellent chocolate cake among other basic additions. This place is a little gem which is a credit to the owners and i would highly reccommend you stat there. One little note the pictures on the website don't really do the place justice.
November 2012
The property contained all we needed for our family stay including 3 under 5s. The location is ideal for all the Peak District attractions... Buxton, Crich, Matlock, Tissington and Monsal trails. Food in the village pub was great and they provided well for the children.
June 2012
This tastefully converted barn has 4 good sized, ensuite bedrooms, including a ground floor room and wetroom, which is suitable for someone with limited mobility. It successfully combines traditional style with modern comfort and good decor. Each bedroom has some seating and a flatscreen T.V., wi-fi and ipod dock, so even if you are a large party , the property feels spacious. We were lucky with the weather, but in the cooler seasons there is a woodburner and underfloor heating which must make the barn very cosy. Lots of nice touches, such as sensor mirrors and lighting and my favourite - an american fridgefreezer with an ice-maker. We were very pleasantly surprised by the very good welcome pack and lost no time tucking into a cup of tea and a slice of homemade cake. Outside is a large sunny patio area with picnic tables, bbq and attractive flowerbeds and planters. The unobtrusive, helpful owners live on hand for any problems but at the same time the property is nice and private. It is very well-situated for visiting Bakewell, Buxton and Chatsworth, among other interesting places and attractions and there are good walks from the door , including the beautiful Lathkill Dale. We have stayed in many cottages and this is one of the best. We enjoyed staying here and would love to visit again.
May 2012
What a lovely place , great location , I would recomend Spingle Barn to anyone of any age we had ages 2 to 85 and no problems with the accomadation at all , Zimmer friendly !! There is everything you need at Spingle Barn , including a fabulous welcome pack including a homemade cake, wine flowers and much more ! We had a wonderful holiday and can't wait to go back ! Even the weather was good !

Stayed during the first week of May, with my sister, and our partners (plus pets!). Communication with the owners was superb and we found it extremely easy to book. All our questions were answered before arrival, and we had a few unusual requests regarding bringing a hot tub, and having our food delivered before we got there. None of which seemed to much trouble for the owners. When we arrived we received a warm welcome, and a very comprehensive tour around the barn with how the underfloor heating (which was amazing) and other facilities worked. There was more then enough parking for our 3 cars. The bedrooms were more then you could ask for, with very modern en suite bathrooms, and very spacious. Very comfortable beds and everything was spotless! Great garden where we enjoyed a super BBQ, with easy access from the lounge and the kitchen. The cottage is just a short walk away from Lathkill Dale, which the dogs loved! The village itself is very pretty, quiet and peaceful. There is a great pub in the village, where we ate one night. We visited many other places close by. We shopped in Buxton and Bakewell and had a great day out at Chatsworth house. We will be back!!!!
November 2011
Me and 7 friends had a weekend at Spingle Barn in November 2011. The description of the place fitted our needs perfectly - large open plan living room / diner, 4 double bedrooms en suite, off road parking and a 2 minute walk to the village pub. We were looking forward to our trip and the stay at the barn exceeded my expectations, which were pretty high to begin with, from the moment I made the enquiry to the minute we left. Garry and Andrea corresponded with me via email and asked if we wanted the bedrooms made up as twins or doubles and told me that they would warm the place up for when we arrived on the Friday afternoon. When we arrived, they had baked us a cake, some bread, to name a couple of items, had a basket of logs set out, written us a welcome card and a welcome sign on the chalk board outside - we felt like we were VIPs. The photos and the descriptions are true to the barn and the location and the conversion is finished to such a high standard. The wood burning stove ensures the barn is cosy at all times and for extra heat, each room had its own underfloor heating. The American style fridge freezer with an ice machine and water filter was also well received. We honestly could not fault the barn, the hospitality received by the owners, or the location. I went with a group of friends but you could easily go with family and children.

The cottage was warm and cosy and the wood burner very easy to operate,the location was a good base for all the places we visited. My party and I felt very much at home there and none of us wanted to come home. The local pub provided excellent meals. It was the best accommodation we have stayed in over our 8 years of holidaying together. We hope to come back again.
Mrs Mcguigan
October 2014
The cottage was in a great situation as a base in our touring around. It was warm, comfortable and welcoming. It had everything that was required; kitchen equipment, great showers, comfortable beds and a wood burner that was so easy to light. It's no wonder it is so popular and always booked up. All in all it was the best cottage we have had the pleasure to stay at. We hope to return in the near future.
