    The cottage can not be faulted in terms of comfort and cleanliness. It's huge, we were a party of five and had much more space than we needed. Lovely bedding, beds comfy, kitchen extremely well equipped. Would be lovely in warm weather, masses of outdoor space/eating areas. A couple of us used the pool and reported that it was quite warm and very pleasant. Having the cinema screen tv room was a treat. If you don't have a car, the climb up to the cottage is a killer! Visited the otter and owl sanctuary, ten minutes walk away, really special. And lots of lovely walking. Special thanks for picking me up at the railway station (NOT close, by any stretch of the imagination) and sending my earrings back to me.

    It was a lovely place to stay. Unfortunately even though pets are allowed, the property is not well fenced in. We had to keep one of our dogs on a lead everytime we let him out! Also its a shame pool isnt heated for a bit during the day.Other than that we had a lovely time.

    Great weekend away, would absolutely go back! Only moan and it was minute and down to personal preference, the master bedroom bed was a bit hard. But that's being picky! Great place!

    The Old Barn is situated on a quiet country lane above the village of Chapel-en-le-Frith with fantastic views across Chapel and beyond towards Cheshire. The house was very clean and spacious, if you are into sound systems; there are a couple of excellent ones. One attached to the television in the first floor lounge and another to the cinema screen in a lounge on the ground floor. The games room provided the family with hours of pleasure. This also had a good sound system. Kitchen facilities are very good and there is plenty of crockery, glasses, and cutlery. The garden area is great with plenty of room for children to play well away from the road. Make sure you take your own bats etc. as the ones supplied are broken. Also excellent if you have dogs and there are some good off road walking paths taking you down to the village. Make sure you do not buy too much shopping, as the walk back is a very steep climb! Our only disappointment was the pool, which was cold. We did contact the owner during our stay that said they monitor it remotely and supposedly increased the heating. However, during our stay, the temperature only once reached 30c and most of the time was between 24 and 26c. We have since been in contact with the owners and say 26c is the normal/average temperature.

    A fantastic place to stay with either friends, family...or both! Nothing is too much trouble for The Old Barn's owners to ensure your stay is perfect.

    We all had a ball at The Old Barn, and used all the extra's, swimming pool. games room and a film room, bar area which was a huge plus for our group holiday, everyone was well happy. A well stocked kitchen with every utensil that you require. We defo consider visiting again. Only down side was one of the sofa in the main living room was un comfortable.

    Beautiful location. Suitable for older family's / adults. The pool is mainly suitable for children who are able to swim as it is quite deep for youngsters. The layout of the house provides opportunities for those in large groups to watch a movie / do their own thing if necessary.
