Ten guests and two dogs and there was plenty of room in this lovely accommodation.
Could not fault it at all. Very comfortable, spotlessly clean and some treats left for us which was a nice touch. Great view of the countryside and nice and peaceful.
The wood burning fire is fab (but maybe turn the under floor heating off for a while before you light it, it gets very warm).
Would definitely love to go back, hopefully for longer next time.
What a fabulous place to stay! Excellent accommodation, luxurious and welcoming. Andrea left us wine and provisions which was a lovely touch. Perfect pet friendly in a superb location. Try the Bulls Head pub in the village as great food and service. Would definitely recommend and would love to return
Spingle Bran was exactly what we needed for our group. We were Mum and Dad, adult daughter and 2 elderly parents. We were celebrating my Dad's 89th birthday. It was also a trip down memory lane for my Mum as she had been evacuated to Monyash during WW2,
The accommodation was very well appointed to meet the needs of older relatives with mobility problems. This made it ideal for our needs.
The cottage was also very well appointed for everyone else in our party. TVs in every bedroom meant keeping everyone happy when viewing tastes clashed!!
Probably the best equipped kitchen we have ever had in a holiday cottage - we've stayed in quite a few both in UK and abroad.
The beds were comfortable. The bed linen and towels were clean and plentiful.
The lounge was nice and cosy. Lots of comfy settees and sofas. The high back riser chair was very welcome.
The PC is very handy for getting on line.
Lovely views from the entrance door across a well kept garden with lots of sitting out areas.
The cottage is in a great location with easy access to Bakewell, Buxton, Ashbourne and Matlock. Also great access to lots of walks, some of which are on the doorstep of the cottage.
Monyash is a lovely village. The beer and meals at The Bull are heartily recommended.
Overall a great base from which to explore the Peak District
Stayed at the Barn with a group of friends for a 50th birthday celebration. The cottage was absolutely amazing, a view shared by all four couples and was a perfect venue. The kitchen is superbly equipped with a huge fridge to store the food and importantly the wine! The sunshine was a bonus which meant we could also take advantage of the garden, for morning breakfast and use the fire pit to keep toasty warm in the evening before dining at the huge table. All of the rooms are slightly different but I would have been delighted to have stayed in any of them.
Quite simply a wonderful cottage to celebrate any occasion with family or friends.
Stayed here for four days in October to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary, we were a group of 11, the sleeping arrangements were no problem as you could choose the layout of the bedrooms before we arrived we found this very helpful there is five bathrooms so no problems there a large living area where we could all relax and a huge dinning table which allowed us a to sit together and eat. Would highly recommend this cottage for large groups.
We have just returned from a lovely stay at Spingle Barn. The barn is in a perfect central location for touring the entire Peak District. It is furnished to a high standard and the beds are huge and very comfortable. We loved the American style fridge with built in ice maker and the well kept outdoor space. The family bedroom is particularly nice with plenty of space for a family of four to sleep. There is a nice village pub 5 minutes walk away with a decent childrens play area and garden. We would certainly return next time we visit the area.
Our second visit, for a week this time, and the barn is just as good as our first visit last November. The welcome pack of homemade bread, cake, milk, etc, all great. We had a great week of weather, making the stay even more enjoyable and we used the outside space. A great base for seeing Derbyshire and the local pub is great. The only person pleased to come home was the dog so he could have a rest from all the walking. At the barn they are planning a new patio and grass area giving the barn even more outside space. May have to have another visit to see this when it is finished.
Would have no hesitation in recommending to barn to anyone and excellent value for money!
Thanks you for a great holiday!
