    Excellent cottage. We spent the week after xmas there and new year 2016. Everything we needed was there and great walks for the dog nearby. Weather was abysmal. I was expecting snow but we got a monsoon but the log fire made up for the weather. Please don't make the mistake I made and keep your dog on a lead. There is plenty of room to walk the dog on the property but the owners chickens made an appearance one day so I had to catch the dog. Luckily I got there in time. Our dog is a bit of a looney though :) We had a thoroughly relaxing week and we would definitely go back.

    We had a lovely break in this beautifully renovated byre. The views were stunning and we were made to feel very welcome (the shortbread being an added bonus!). It is also ideally located for touring the Peak District and a short car drive to the lovely town of Leek for those bits of shopping needed or the odd takeaway!!

    Stunning location. The Old Byre has great potential but is rather dated - shabby furniture, no wifi, very small TV. Nearly very good.

    Response from: Administrator

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry that you found the Old Byre to be dated and not to your taste. The living room is unfortunately not big enough to accommodate a large TV, otherwise we would certainly put one in. The furniture and TV are as shown in the photos. The cottage unfortunately does not advertise as having Wi-Fi. We are in a rural location and not on super fast broadband (part of the charm of living in the country), however there is a Wi-Fi code available but the chance of it working in the cottage is slim because the walls are so thick.
