“A lovely quiet place to relax”
Reviewed 23 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Well where to start...Relaxing,cosy, tranquil, quiet little get away, with a little piece of nature all thrown in

Bumble Bee Barn is a lovely cosy little cottage, with everything you need to have a relaxing holiday. Bumble Bee Barn is situated at the back of the owners property so you really feel like you are there on your own. It is topped off with superb views from the living room of open fields, if your lucky you may even catch the deer playing in the fields just behind the Barn. There is an enclosed garden, I would have preferred a slightly higher fence to keep the dog in as we had to put her on the lead when outside but that says more about our dog then the Barn as Lady (Dog) is a bit of an escape artist so would have been over the fences in a flash to meet Fred and Ginger (Geese) and the chickens, saying that... a higher fence would spoil the view which would be a real shame as it is spectacular to sit and watch the birds having their breakfast in the morning with a pot of tea.

Cherry (Owner) is on hand should you need her and she has a good knowledge of places in the area so can recommend some good places to visit. There is a basket in the living room of leaflets for places in the local area including walks and restaurants to visit. There is a field at the back of the property that you can take your dogs on for that early morning/last thing at night walks.

There is very helpful notes of how to use the appliances, it was my first time cooking on a Alfalfa cooker, I really enjoyed it and it somehow made the food taste fresher this could be my imagination of course.

I hope you take the time to go and visit this lovely little piece of paradise if you get the chance, we would love to return someday and explore more as our pick of timings wasn't great as the larger local attractions don't open till end of March, however we still managed to find more than enough to keep us busy for the week visiting different villages near by and lots of different walks for Lady (Dog). There are lots more places in the area that we would still like to visit.

Thank you Cherry for your kind hospitality and we hope to visit again soon.

Take care
Donna, Luke and Lady (Dog)

“Lovely little place for a break”
Reviewed 27 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We had a lovely weekend staying at Bumble Bee Barn, secluded, spacious and well equipped. The huge bed was super comfy and excellent shower. Loved the old style cooker in the kitchen.

Peak District was a beautiful area to explore and we wish we had booked a few more days as there is so much to see!

Only little problem we had was running out of toilet roll, maybe placing a spare in the bathroom cabinet would be useful as we didn't want to disturb you.

Thanks very much,
Sami and Ollie

“what a lovely place”
Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

A lovely place to stay, I love gardening and it was lovely to stroll around in the evening and morning, we have now come home with ideas and our pond is already under way, I could live there quite easily. I went there feeling stressed and came away feeling very laid back, we will be staying again, thank you Cherry,

“Cosy home from home”
Reviewed 1 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We recently returned from our stay at Bumble Bee Barn which we stayed at for 18 days. The cottage is spacious and cosy and is a well equipped home from home. As we were working at the nearby Chatsworth Xmas market it was nice to come in and be able to have home cooked food in relaxing surroundings. Cherry the owner is very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. The barn is situated on a tiny lane and although parking a car is not a problem we had a large long wheel base van and this proved to be very tricky as the access is through two gates and reversing the van when we arrived back in the dark was rather challenging.
