Sheldon Barn is a light and airy first floor barn conversion, with accommodation on one level accessed via a staircase. It features a large and comfortable living/dining room with views over the garden and beautiful countryside. As well as a modern, well-equipped kitchen, there are two well-appointed bedrooms - a double room with en-suite bathroom and a twin room with separate bathroom. Below Sheldon Barn is a useful boot room, available to guests for drying clothes and boots after wet weather when exploring the local area.
Situated in the heart of the southern Peak District National Park, Sheldon Barn is a great base for exploring the nearby towns, including Bakewell, Buxton and Ashbourne, as well as many other Peak District attractions. For anyone who enjoys walking and cycling, The Limestone Way, The Peak Pilgrimage and The Pennine Bridleway all pass through or very close to Monyash. Also close by you will find the Tissington and High Peak railway trails, offering superb off-road cycling and walking, and the Monsal Trail is just a few miles away.
Impressive country houses such as Chatsworth and Haddon Hall are nearby, as is the Plague Village of Eyam. Slightly further afield you can enjoy Ilam Park, Dovedale with its famous stepping stones, the Peak Wildlife Park, Alton Towers, The Heights of Abraham, Gullivers Kingdom, Matlock and Matlock Bath, as well as the Blue John Cavern and Kinder Scout, to name just a few things to do within easy reach. There really is something for everyone!
Sheldon Barn really is the perfect place to enjoy the beauty and attractions that this part of the country has to offer. After a long day out and about exploring, what better way to relax than enjoying the shared use of the owners’ garden with its fantastic views? The nearest village shop is at Ashford-in-the-Water, whilst Bakewell is 5 miles away with good shopping and a supermarket. Shop 4 miles, pub/restaurant 500 yards.

    There is a cafe and pub in the village but no shop hence poor amenities close by and the lower grading however the cottage is fab! Good amount of space in the cottage, well resources and lovely welcome of fresh bread, eggs, milk and marmalade. Lovely owners very accommodating with secure bike storage.

    Lovely accommodation in a great location for exploring. Appreciated the home made bread, marmalade, cakes and eggs on arrival. Books and games were available. Parking was never a problem. Not many amenities in Monyash but plenty in Bakewell or Buxton which were not too far by car.

    A wonderful cottage - well equipped, comfortable, great views and very quiet. Good parking too. We will definitely visit again. Centrally located for exploring the area and in a lovely village with an excellent pub - very popular - you need to book a table most night's of the week if you want to eat. The Morris Dancers were an added bonus!

    The Cottage is in an ideal position in a very attractive village. The local pub was ideal for food and a drink. Pity there was no small shop in the village, had to go out of the village for milk and bread, must be worse for the inhabitants. The cottage was clean and tidy, the only small gripe was, two bathrooms but neither shower could be used due to lack or very small shower curtain, using either shower flooded the bathroom floor. Owners were very friendly and helpful throughout. If the weather had been even a little helpful, it would have been a perfect holiday, however this was not the owners responsibility.
