This is a small but excellent property. Modern inside with excellent kitchen equipment, tv's and fast broadband. Ideal for a couple or with children. Lots to do in the area.

“Absolutely Superb, perfect place to escape from it all!”

person found this review helpful

We have just returned from a very wet and foggy week in the area, but Dragon Hill Barn is the perfect place for sheltering from the elements! The log fire makes the already cosy cottage even more so and is super for warming up from a wet walk. The cottage has everything in it that you'd need for a stay - the towels are just wonderful! There is no phone signal in the cottage - heavenly! - but there is wifi if you need to connect. The 2 pubs in the village are lovely and welcoming. There is plenty to do in the area, even in bad weather! Would thoroughly recommend.

“A spotless and well presented barn conversion in a delightful village”
Reviewed 4 March 2012 for a stay in February 2012

person found this review helpful

Dragon Hill Barn is a well equipped and modern property, with parking immediately outside. It is warm and comfortable - the woodburning stove is very efficient and easy to use. Two pubs are close by, with the Gate Inn particularly recommended for its warm welcome, good beers and excellent food. The property is within a 30 minute drive of the major tourist attractions of the Peak District.
Over the years we have stayed at many cottages, and invariably there is some fault somewhere. However, with Dragon Hill Barn there were none, and we will most certainly book again.

“Lovely cottage in a very pretty village”
Reviewed 2 October 2011 for a stay in September 2011
1
person found this review helpful

The cottage was very well serviced, very neat, clean and comfortable. The owners provided items for kitchen/bathroom cleaning/washing up-even dishwasher tablets, condiments, and liquid soap.Plenty of logs for the fire (though we didn't need them this week!) and plenty of CDs, DVDs, books and games. Also a lot of local information and booklets provided.
The only downside at the property was the double bed was a little big for the room, and you just had to be careful not to bang your knees on it. Also the bedrooms had window shutters, not curtains, but this wasn't too much of a problem.
The village was very pretty and served by 2 good pubs-The Miners Arms is a good real ale pub, serves good pub fayre and is a good place to chat with the locals. Ye Olde Gate is a lovely 'olde worlde' type pub complete with real fires, and tankards hanging from its beams. The food here could compete with any high class restaurant and the chef even offered to cook whatever our vegetarian friend liked (which you don't find happens often).
The cottage is not far from many pretty villages- Ashbourne is great on market day and has lovely individual shops and plenty of places to eat. Carsington Water is close by and is a lovely place to walk and has a lovely restaurant overlooking the reserve.There are also a few shops there. Dovedale is beautiful -great for short and easy or more strenuous walks. We also visited Kedlestone Hall and Calke Abbey- both interesting and about 3/4 hr away. At Calke you can even have a picnic at the side of the Deer reserve. It also has a lovely garden with organised tours-well worth it.
We had a lovely week. The cottage made a lovely comfortable base from which to explore the surrounding area. Would happily recommend it.

Thank you for your review and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Dragon Hall Barn changed ownership in April 2011 and since then the new owners have spent time improving the TV signal and they hope that you will return to their lovely property in the future.
