We enjoyed a super stay at Big fernyford Barn.
Coming from a farm it was a home from home break.. But really it was fabulous, the barn is amazingly renovated to a wonderful high standard. It is equiped with everything you can imagine, and lovely and cosy. The huge tv was fab and caught up on a few box set dvds. Shower was great and plenty pressure.

The situ was ideal for travelling to all the sights just a half hour car journey to most places, buxton, bakewell, leek. Highly recommend Go Ape at Buxton. Super day out!

Highly recommend the accommodation to anyone!

“Perfect accommodation , perfects hosts, perfect location, just faultless”
Reviewed 26 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The accommodation is of the highest standard with every need catered for.
Neil and Dorota were very friendly and welcoming and gave us a tour of their farm which was a highlight for our young son. The farm produce they had on offer was very high quality.
The location was very quiet and rural perfect for a relaxing holiday. It was a perfect base to see the rest of the peak district.
We would highly recommend this as a place to stay, we couldn't fault anything about it. We hope to return again soon for another family holiday.

“What a haven, peaceful and relaxing in stunning converted barn”

We had a wonderful week at Fernyford. From the moment we arrived we felt at home. A very warm welcome from Dorota, Neil and Barney. Our children 11 & 12 had a wonderful time - feeding the animals with Barney in the morning and playing in the fields for hours on end. Happy children - happy parents. The barn is ideally located for wonderful walks and Leek is only a short drive away with lots of lovely shops to explore. There are some wonderful eating places around that can be easily driven to. The barn is decorated to a very high spec. with all the mod cons and very homely additions, its just lovely....we will be back..

“Amazing place to stay in the Peak District”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

we had a wonderful couple of weeks staying in the cottage. Neil and Doota were fantastic hosts and couldn't have done more to make sure we had a fantastic holiday. The animals were very friendly and were very happy around our 9 month old the farm felt like it was in the middle of nowhere but was within easy driving distance of all the main attractions. The cottage is well equipped and the rooms, especially the bedrooms, are sizeable. We look forward to returning when our daughter is old enough to appreciate it!

“Truely wonderful”
Reviewed 2 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We spent half term at Fernyford Barn with our two children (8 and 6). It was the most perfect place to explore the delights of the Peak District. The barn itself is beautiful, spacious and equipped with everything you could need. Neil and Dorota were brilliant hosts and happy to tell us all about the farm.

We would recommend Fernyford Barn without hesitation and look forward to staying again next time we visit the Peak District.
