“Perfect country retreat”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Me and the husband booked up here for a quiet getaway in a peacefull location. The barn conversion was stunning and Amanda is proud to point out what it went from (livestock barn) to the beautiful cottage that it is today. The attention to detail is amazing and pretty much everything has been thought of. Whenever we had to bug Amanda for trivial items she was more than happy to help, we found her hospitality refreshing. The Hot tub was amazing and the beds so soft that they were hard to get out of.
The old granary was close enough to lots of picturesque towns and had access to lots of walking trails so you can do lots whilst there or just sit in peace and quiet, take in the scenery and wish that you never had to leave.
We will endeavour to stay again, hopefully in warmer weather so that I can just stay in the hot tub for 5 days with my kindle.
A fantastic stay with really reasonable prices, I dont feel we would get that level of service in a same-priced hotel.
Thanks for a great stay!

“Fantastic position overlooking wonderful countryside.”
Reviewed 6 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Very pleasant welcome from owners Amanda & Martin.
Everything you could need for a self catering stay, bedding and bathrooms very clean but we were surprised to find dust under sofas, on lampshades, dirty high chair and only one working light bulb in one wall light in sitting room.
The frying pans need replacing (non stick useless) and the fridge is small for longer than a few days stay.

“Best 30th Wedding Anniversary Hoped for!”
Reviewed 24 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

A delightful, tastefully restored barn conversion providing all the modern comforts required while not sacrificing the quirky, traditional, cottage atmosphere expected. A beautiful location with panoramic views - all on the doorstep of the magical Peak District. Private, quiet and peaceful - great to lie in the Jacuzzi and watch the moon rise. Thank you for a beautiful place to stay as a base to enjoy our 30th!

“perfect country cottage & shepards hut”
Reviewed 16 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

We came back to stay here for a second year and once again it was perfect. The cottage is gorgeous. Its Immaculately decorated and has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing weekend away in the countryside. This year we had the shepards hut too, i can't recommend it enough, its a cosy little hideaway at the end of the garden. It has underfloor heating so its always cosy and warm. You can lie in the bed and look out over the gorgeous views of the countryside, a perfect addition to what is already a stunning cottage getaway. Amanda and martin have always provided everything you could need but are also available if you need help with anything. If your lucky carrot the cat will pop round to say hello too. We will definitely be going back again.

We stayed at The Old Granary as a birthday treat and couldn't have chosen anywhere better. The accommodation is first class Amanda and Martin were fantastic hosts. The kitchen is a lovely place to sit with the family. There is everything you could need if you want to cook. The hot tub was enjoyed by all. We enjoyed it so much we are hoping to return very soon.

“Luxury in a beautiful setting.”
Reviewed 18 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Just back from 3 nights at this beautiful house. Its location is truly lovely and the views are stunning particularly from the hot tub. The house manages to be charming and cosy whilst still spacious with all the mod cons. The attention to detail is impressive and the owner Amanda couldn't have been more helpful. Enjoyed the log burner and the surround sound system and the high quality comfy beds. Perfect weekend retreat from the rat race!
