“A truly outstanding, beautifully fitted property”

We stayed in September and were welcomed by Cherry, the owner. The garden and views were truly stunning with lots of unusual wild birds and deer on both the owner's land and the hillside opposite. Bumble Bee is fitted out to a very high standard with great attention to detail and everything is to hand for the comfort of guests. We visited both Chatsworth and Haddon which are close by, and walked on Stanton Moor amongst the heather. Cherry's free range eggs from her chickens were the best we had tasted and we will be back very soon.

“Beautiful Bumble Bee barn”

An excellent base for exploring the peak district. A quiet peaceful location but close enough to Chatsworth and Bakewell and lots of walks in the South of the peak district. All amenities you need for a relaxing and ejoyable stay. Also check out the Royal Oak pub for a great variety of food at Hurdlow.

“A lovely escape from the City”

We stayed here for 4 nights in February 2012. The barn was even better than I'd expected. I particularly liked the thoughtful decor and character of the building. It was clean and cosy, with all amenities you need. Outside, the land available to guests is really generous - there was plenty of space for our young dog to run around and there are spectacular views of the woodland and valleys around. We visited while there was a lot of snow, which made for beautiful walking. The local village of Birchover, approx 1.5 miles, is small with a nice pub called the Red Lion - serving a great selection of local ales. Warren Carr is not so far from amenities (and are a lovely walk in the day) but in the evening you would probably need a taxi to get to Matlock or a local village if you wanted to go for a meal. We would definitely recommend this letting and can't wait to come back again.

“A perfect retreat for two.......”

Bumble Bee Barn is a lovely little cottage...comfortable, spacious enough for two and tastefully appointed. The view from the lounge over the beautifully maintained garden and valley beyond is delightful. The cottage is quietly situated in a small hamlet with secure off-road parking, a rarity for a Derbyshire holiday cottage, yet only a few minutes away from the amenities of Matlock. Chatsworth House, Buxton, Bakewell and Ashbourne are all only a short drive away, making this an excellent base for exploring. Highly recommended!

A charming and comfortable place to be in after walking in the dales and visiting historical houses. Quiet, surrounded with an attractive garden overlooking the fields and hills. Friendly and helpful owner.
