Our second visit to Winnow Barn and it wont be our last. The Barn has been sympathetically converted and furnished to a high standard. John and Andrea Clarke, the owners could not be more helpful and welcoming. Look forward to the fabulous home made cake on arrival. The barn is very remote, which is it's appeal, however there are numerous walks reasonably close with a great selection of pubs to visit. Highly recommended for family get together or friends reunion.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We had a wonderful holiday in this terrific barn.
Very comfortable. relaxing and warm. The lemon drizzle cake on arrival was delicious. There are numerous things to do in the area and some lovely walks. Alton Towers is not far away so our teenagers were happy and we managed to find a pub nearby that did excellent food at very reasonable prices!
We have had a farm holiday every year for the past 15 years and this is one of the best barns that we have stayed in however there is not a great deal of farm interaction if that is what you are hoping for.
Certainly a great base for a holiday with many walks and days out with beautiful views. Ashbourne and Bakewell are not far away together with Uttoxeter racecourse.
I would definately recommend.

“Perfect place for a family get away”
Reviewed 8 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

I can't say enough good things about this beautiful holiday cottage. I was struggling to find somewhere for a family get-together to celebrate my dad's 65th birthday as it needed to have 4 double rooms and be in just the right location, then I stumbled upon Winnow Farm. From my first enquiry the service was brilliant offering any help they could to make sure our weekend was perfect. Trust me when I say the pictures on the website do not do the cottage justice. It is beautifully decorated and everything and more is provided. The bedrooms and all 4 en-suites were spacious and the huge living/kitchen area was more than big enough for 8 adults and a baby with all his toys. There is plenty to do nearby, we spent a morning in Ashbourne and a day in Bakewell but I could have happily spent the days relaxing at the farm with a book the surroundings are so peaceful. I'd recommend this place to anyone wanting to explore the area or looking for a place to get together with friends or family and enjoy cosy nights in front of the fire. I'm already trying to think up another excuse to visit again!

“Stunning and classy country retreat.”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This find is a classic. A rural idyll with all mod cons. The Barn has been converted with skill and attention to detail. It's a real pleasure to stay in and a great location to explore the stunning surroundings. You can easily walk to the nearby valleys and hills without too much trouble and the awards are well worth it. The kids had a great time and loved the farm and getting to meet the goats, donkeys and pigs. Andrea and John couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Top job. Highly recommend.
