“Comfortable, great host, perfect location”
Reviewed 24 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Within walking distance of village shop and pub (open part of week). Plenty of walks around village. Good position within the dales for visiting main towns. Property had everything one could wish for - well equipped kitchen, wifi which worked, plenty of room to relax. Mobile reception a little hit and miss, but still able to use somewhere in the cottage. Maybe a sign with the name of the cottage would have helped when first arrived.

“A wonderful stay”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed for a week at this beautiful, relaxing house. Our kids aged 10, 8 and 5 loved it..very clean and comfortable. It's a lovely part of the world. We visited Heights Of Abraham, Gullivers World Theme Park, Chatsworth House, Bakewell and Buxton. The Old Barn is very near all these places. Sharon provides us with a lovely welcoming pack and homemade lemon cake. Thank you Sharon for a lovely holiday

“Fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed 6 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Very pleased we picked this barn to stay in for the week. Situated perfectly between bakewell and matlock. So much to see and do within 15-20 miles radius. Barn itself was very clean and comfortable. Absolutely everything you need was supplied. The upstairs bedroom and ensuite are a complete luxury. Home from home. Loved the homemade cake on arrival too.

“Gorgeous place to stay”
Reviewed 16 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Stayed here for a couple of nights with my better half and her parents. It's a lovely place to stay and central to the things we wanted to visit: Dovedale, Ilam, Cromford, Bakewell.

It was spotless, really cosy, comfy & warm. Everything worked as it was supposed to and the owner was lovely. The cake she made us was to die for.

I'm lucky enough to do a lot of travel and have stayed in a lot of places, but this cottage goes towards the top of my list simply because it is so clear that the owner really invests her time and effort into making your stay enjoyable. It's these little things that make the biggest difference.

I couldn't get a phone signal for love nor money (probably a good thing), but the wifi did the job when i needed to quickly connect to the office.

“Perfect getaway with baby”
Reviewed 29 January 2016 for a stay in September 2015

We had a wonderful few days at The Old Barn. The layout was perfect for an extended family break, with a separate room for our five-month-old baby meaning we could all relax and enjoy our evenings once he was asleep. Sharon was so helpful in the run-up to, and during, our stay, and generously offered for us to check out at any time on our final day, effectively enabling us to have an extra day's holiday! Thoroughly recommended.

“A fabulous Christmas in a fabulous barn!”
Reviewed 28 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

My husband, our two children and my sister spent a wonderful Christmas at The Old Barn. Sharon kindly provided us with a beautifully decorated Christmas tree and baked us a most delicious lemon drizzle cake. The Barn is tastefully decorated with all amenities. It is located in a very pretty village not far from the lovely town of Bakewell, whose tarts are delicious, so well worth a visit. We enjoyed some lovely local walks which were perfect to help all the festive food go down. Sharon is a really lovely lady who was very happy to answer all my queries and we had a really lovely stay. We hope very much to return.
