A detached barn conversion within 25 acres and enjoying spectacular views across the valley. A great base being only four miles from Matlock.

This detached barn conversion overlooks the village of Ashover. With a commanding position above the valley it sits in 25-acre grounds and lies adjacent to Goss Hall, the owners’ Grade II Elizabethan manor house. A truely rural location where a small flock of Gotland rare breed sheep graze in the surrounding fields, with chickens, cockerels, geese, ducks and goats all within view of the property. From the doorstep, walking and cycle trails are aplenty, with one leading to Ashover itself which uniquely has its very own downloadable audio trail, with the ability to bring the route to life. The River Amber flows through this small village which lies between Chesterfield and Matlock, and was once used for the TV drama series, ’Peak Practice’. Nearby Ogston Reservoir can be reached in around 10 minutes and provides sailing, windsurfing, trout fishing, and is also great for bird watching. The former spa town of Matlock, also around 10 minutes offers many antique shops and cafés, and Matlock Bath has its very own cable car that reaches the Heights of Abraham. The ever popular riverside market town of Bakewell, home to the magnificent historic houses of Chatsworth Estate and Haddon Hall can be reached in around ½ hour, as can Bolsover Castle. The historic market town of Chesterfield with its crooked spire is around a 20 minute journey and for any thrill seekers, the Alton Towers theme park can be reached in approximately 1 hour. Shop 2 miles, pub serving food 1 mile and restaurant 3 miles.

Ground floor: Living/dining room. Kitchen with tiled floor. Bathroom with bath, shower cubicle and toilet. First floor: 2 double bedrooms (one 6ft zip and link, can be twin).

    Rita and John were exceptionally welcoming and we enjoyed a blissful few days with them last week. Calf Close Barn is situated in a rural location and easy access to wonderful walks and pubs. great for unwinding. Yet, it is only a short & easy drive from facilities in Matlock-it doesn't involve miles of twisting lanes!! The cottage is exceptionally well appointed with everything you might need and is very tastefully decorated- it is very easy to feel at home here. The barn nestles in countryside on the edge of their small scale, traditional farm, a great opportunity to see some rare breeds up close and of course their fantastic eggs are the freshest you will have ever tasted. A real opportunity to get back to a rural life many of us left behind a generation ago. Just perfect for two or four people. Enjoy!!

    We enjoyed a very nice week here with our 6yr old and 20 month old. The boys enjoyed seeing the animals and Rita and John were very nice hosts.

    Very comfortable barn conversion, in a beautiful location excellently placed for all the local attractions. Enjoyed seeing all the newborn lambs. John and Rita , the owners were very welcoming and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

    Very pleasant stay at this comfortable „barn“, spacious and well equipped with all a family could need. The owners are nice and the farm is good for city kids to experience. We’ll stay again when we go to the Peak District.

    Great cottage. Very cosy accommodation and well equipped. Beautiful surroundings and the animals on the farm were a bonus for the kids. John and Rita are very friendly but also very discreet as they live on the farm. Had a cold spell whilst there and the cottage was very warm and well insulated. Would recommend this booking.
