    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!!

    It was great to return to the Old Byre and once again we were impressed by the comfort and cleanliness of the cottage. Helen & Kevin were as always helpful and friendly. The Old Byre has a superb location on a hill, overlooking the surrounding countryside with views to all sides. It is well-equipped and the large, comfy bed is a bonus! It is within easy reach of several beautiful Peak district walks The underfloor heating makes it cosy in the evening and there was a large supply of wood for the burner (thankfully not needed as we were lucky with the weather in September) The Red Lion pub has re-opened (a mile away in Thorncliffe) and this serves excellent pub meals and good beer Thanks for the delicious shortcake! We have been to the Old Byre many times and we will be back again

    The Old Byre was a fantastic cottage, full of character and with views and sunsets to did for. The cottage is set on the top of a hill but was really cosy inside even when the wind was strong. The owners have put a lot of thought into the cottage which inside is full of character. Our dog loved the owners field which she was allowed to play in. Overall a five star place to stay. We would stay again

    Not only would we highly recommend this to our friends but, having stayed in May, we're already booked to return in September! The vase of roses, home baked shortbread and jug of fresh milk that greeted us on arrival, more than made up for the rigours of our journey from the Isle of Wight. We loved the décor, especially the wardrobe in the main bedroom, which could have come straight out of Narnia - so much so we're amazed that the owners are prepared to allow pets (ours being Lab-Alsation cross is a real mud magnet). We've also never had the luxury of such freedom to exercise her off the lead, and certainly not amidst such breath-taking scenery. Definitely a holiday for all seasons: cosy in front of the log burner when the sleet was blowing horizontally past the windows and perfect for sun-downers and Deluxe Scrabble, on the decking with views across to the Welsh mountains. Ideal for anyone who loves getting away from it all and appreciates the opportunities to be close to the birds and wildlife that are now sadly rare sights elsewhere.
