“Wonderful long weekend stay”

The Cruck Barn is a wonderful little place. It has beautiful scenery, and it's lovely to sit on the balcony and look out over the fields.

It was a shame we were only there 2 nights, but we arrived and Mary and Ray were there to greet us, and give us some advice on where to visit over the few days we were staying in Matlock. On arrival there was tea, coffee, sugar and homemade scones which were delicious! Jam and cream to go with the scones, and a pint of milk. Towels were provided which is unusual for a self catering place. There were lots of little touches which made it feel li,e a home from home, and Mary and Ray were so friendly, we really didn't want to leave!

Thank you Mary and Ray for such a wonderful place and being so welcoming, we can't wait to come back again soon!

“Excellent cosy pet-friendly cottage”

Lovely cottage, well equipped and great base for exploring Derbyshire. Peaceful location and friendly and helpful hosts, Mary and Ray. Great home baked scones as a welcome treat! Many lovely walks and NT properties within reach and Chatsworth. Ideal for dogs a meadow for them to play in and explore and walks some from the door and others in nearby vicinity. Loved walking different sections of the Cromford Canal. Would definitely revisit and hopefully have better weather to fully appreciate the glorious views from the balcony. Thank you Mary and Ray

The Cruck Barn is absolutely perfect. Delicious scones cream, jam and milk etc awaited us. It was our anniversary and Mary had very kindly put a bottle of prosecco in the fridge. Has everything that you need and more.
Lots of amazing places to visit nearby including Chatsworth House.
Mary and Ray are the perfect hosts.
We can't wait to go back and as soon as the football fixtures are out we shall be booking another weekend.

The barn is delightful. Spacious, comfortable and very well equipped. Situated in a small hamlet with wonderful views. Close to Matlock and Bakewell. Mary and Ray made us and the dog very welcome, and were very helpful. Highly recommended for seeing this part of Derbyshire.

This is our second visit with our two small dogs. Comfortable but cosy, clean and everything you need. Mary and Ray are great hosts. So much to see in the area and great walks for the dogs. Scones cream and jam to greet you!
