COACH HOUSE (3 bedrooms, sleeps 6/7), HAYBARN (2 bedrooms, sleeps 4/5) & OLD BYRE (1 bedroom, sleeps 2). PRICES: prices are for ALL THREE cottages. If you are interested in one or two cottages only, please contact us. Our change-over days are Fridays and Mondays and a 3 night weekend (Friday to Monday) is the same price as a 4 night mid-week break (Monday to Friday) - this website only allows us to show one change-over day (Friday) - if you are interested in a mid-week break please contact us. There is a weekly rate which may be cheaper.than the price the website shows for 5 and 6 night bookings. The COACH HOUSE, a former carriage & stable block, has 3 bedrooms and sleeps 6/7 guests. It has a spectacular, and very spacious, beamed lounge with a wood-burning stove (Biomass). From the lounge, which has fantastic views, a flight of open-tread stairs leads to a romantic galleried, double bedroom. All other rooms are on the ground floor making this cottage suitable for visitors with limited mobility. The master bedroom has a king-size double bed with an en-suite shower room while a separate, family bathroom has a shower over the bath, hand basin and toilet. A third bedroom has twin beds in a bunk arrangement and there is a folding Z-bed for an extra guest. A spectacular modern kitchen with granite worktops, American style fridge/freezer and under floor heating gives this cottage the WOW factor! TOURIST BOARD 4 STAR GRADING, GOLD AWARD The HAYBARN, part of a former barn and corn store, has 2 bedrooms and sleeps 4/5 guests. It has a very spacious modern kitchen & dining room complete with granite worktops and is equipped to an exceptionally high standard. The lounge is especially cosy with wonderful views. An open-tread flight of stairs leads to a landing overlooking a courtyard. The landing provides access to a modern, deluxe, family bathroom with a shower over the bath, toilet and hand-basin. The master bedroom has a spectacular vaulted ceiling and king-size double bed. A separate, second bedroom has twin beds (which can be made into a king-size double by arrangement). This cottage will easily accommodate two couples but the layout (second bedroom leading off the master bedroom) means that it’s particularly suitable for families, especially those with small children. The second bedroom contains a Z-bed for an extra person. TOURIST BOARD 5 STAR GRADING The OLD BYRE, a cozy and romantic cottage, has 1 bedroom and sleeps 2 guests. It has an open-plan lounge, dining area and modern, deluxe kitchen with granite worktops and integrated appliances. We have just installed a wood-burning stove (Biomass) making the cottage especially cosy and warm! An open-tread flight of stairs leads to a galleried landing which provides access to a double bedroom with truly stunning views! The deluxe bathroom has a shower over the bath, toilet and hand basin. TOURIST BOARD 5 STAR GRADING, GOLD AWARD Each cottage has a dishwasher, washer/drying machine, hob, oven, fridge, freezer, Nespresso coffee machine, microwave, LCD TV, DVD and WiFi. Outside, they have their own garden furniture, picnic tables, barbecues etc. and access to two small paddocks. There is ample safe parking (adjacent to the cottages) which is well away from roads. We have some complimentary cycles for our guests to use.More

Interaction with guests
The cottages have beamed ceilings and many original features but they are very much 21st century exuding luxury, comfort and warmth (including premium quality bed linen, comfy beds with mattress toppers, robes and sumptuous towels). We will greet you personally with a welcome tray, pot of tea, locally made scones and preserves. Our aim is to provide you with a lovely, relaxing, self indulgent treat in a fantastic location with incredible views and wonderful walking straight from the door!

Stayed for 1 week in The Byre. The weather threw everything at us but it didn't spoil the wonderful experience we had staying in the Peak district. All finer details are catered for with lots of lovely places nearby to visit.

How to get there
VISITORS COMING NORTH on the M1: We suggest you avoid Derby by taking exit 23A onto the A50 and then the A515 to Ashbourne. Visitors approaching from Leek or Ashbourne on the A523: Turn onto the B5053 at a main cross-roadsthe and pass through Onecote village. 1½ mile past Onecote take the second turning on the right into Butterton. Drive through Butterton to the far edge of the village and bear left towards Hulme End. We are located ¾ mile down this lane on the right. The entrance to our driveway is clearly marked. Visitors approaching from Bakewell, Buxton or Ashbourne on the A515: Turn onto the B5054 and pass through Hartington to Hulme End. At the Manifold Inn turn left and after 400 yards take the first right onto a very narrow lane. After 1½ miles a hump backed bridge takes you over...
