Set in 2 acres of land, this unique 300-year-old stone barn has been converted into very stylish and spacious living accommodation.

Set in the heart of the Peak District National Park, near to Castleton and Hope Valley, there are footpaths and bridleways for walking direct from the door, or guests can simply relax in the garden and enjoy the wonderful scenery. Castleton is a popular village, only 10 minutes away, with the Blue John Caverns and various other caverns to discover. The Old Barn is ideally situated for exploring Whaley Bridge, the spa town of Buxton and Matlock, as well as Chatsworth House which is a beautiful country mansion and popular with visitors.

    lovely home-only problem water kept going off in mornings and central heating a bit hit and miss. Wish we had rented during summer months. plenty to do and peaceful environment. Grown up grandchildren loved it. Pool a bonus. Basic amenities provided, lovely kitchen and comfy beds. we were celebrating daughter in laws birthday and a meal at Cheshire cheese in Castleton was lovely. Not suitable for anyone with mobility problems or toddlers due to gaps in stairs/open plan layout. Very good holiday glad we went. Local pub closed for refurbishment, made our own entertainment.

    Wow, a wonderful place to stay, especially with grandchildren. Plenty of room and areas to separate some small ones occasionally! Dogs loved it too and we could easily keep them in an area until they were dry after a walk. If the weather was bad there was so much to do inside with the games room, film room and the wonderful pool. The pool was so clean and lovely and warm. Very easy to keep the pool locked with young children around. The barbecue was excellent and the views amazing. We couldn't fault it at all as a holiday home for 6 adults, four small children and two dogs, with lots to do in the area.

    This was one of my favourite weekends. Celebrating my 30th birthday with my closest friends. The house had everything and the owners have thought of everything. The weather was beautiful, hotter than Ibiza apparently! Will definitely recommend this for friends and families.

    Had a fantastic week, celebrating my birthday. The weather was amazing, we had sunshine every day! The accommodation is extremely spacious and the owners have thought of absolutely everything you could need to make for a very comfortable and memorable stay. The views from the house are stunning. It's an ideal, peaceful place to get away from it all, unwind and chill out.

    We were very surprised at the end of the week when the owners turned up 10 minutes before 10am and came in to the cottage to 'check we had left anything behind.' we felt very uncomfortable and left in a hurry - leaving behind some kitchen items we had taken with us. We were asked if we had 'definitely lifted up the rug in the lounge because of the dogs!' It is not the norm for the owners to turn up- we also had a phone call mid week asking if the laundry could be delivered! The bags were enormous and lived in the entrance area for 5 days. Not ideal at all when you pay for a luxury cottage for the week.
