The Barn is like the "Tardis" small looking BUT with a Big Heart. Everything you could possibly want tastefully decorated,cosy,comfortable,spacious,welcoming. We arrived late at night in the mist and rain but found it easily enough and it is at the remote end of remote perfect for us. For walkers it is paradise and although remote everything the Dales has to offer is close at hand there are plenty of places to visit. The owners were friendly and helpful. We cannot speak to highly of The Barn. Try it you won't be disappointed.
Absolutely loved my stay. The owners were really friendly, and had clearly made a real effort with the property. Gorgeous modern bathroom, lovely kitchen, cosy living room and bedroom. Clean and well presented, with lots of little personal touches - without being overbearing, and definitely not outdated (which has been my experience in many other self-catering cottages). I almost wish the weather had been colder, so I could have tested the wood burner!
The only slight downside would be that, due to the (very pretty) exposed beams in the bedroom, there is very little between you and the outside world. I can't comment on how this effects heat loss from the building. but it does mean that everything outside can be heard very clearly. Not much of a problem for early risers, but you may want earplugs if you plan on sleeping in!
My one big comment would be that the beading was feather, with no obvious feather-free alternatives. A luxury for some people I don't doubt, but - being severely asthmatic - this was the only real inconvenience.
All in all, a lovely peaceful stay in the middle of the stunning Peak District - absolute bliss.
