Barn
Newly converted barn on working sheep farm, The Hayloft has a large open plan living, dining and kitchen with underfloor heated stone floors.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.

Perfect for our family get together.
Perfect stay for a family get together between Christmas and New Year. The Hayloft was perfect for our family group which comprised 6 adults and 3 children aged 7, 7, and 5. The Hayloft is very comfortable with everything you could need and a fantastic games room which was made good use of by our grandchildren. The setting at this time of the year with all the Christmas lights was a delight and there is plenty to do around this area. We loved going to the Panto on New Years Eve in Buxton. An absolute gem of a theatre and a real highlight for our family. We are first times but are certain to return. Definitely recommended. Communication is top quality from the owners.

Luxury yet homely family get-away
My mum booked the Hayloft as a treat family getaway pre-Christmas. The communication from the host pre-arrival was excellent with lots of great recommendations for eating out and things to do. When a flat tyre interrupted their arrival the host went above and beyond to ensure it did not impact on the weekend break. The rest of us arrived in the dark to the warm and twinkly festive lights around the farm - the glow from the Christmas tree in the Hayloft was so inviting. We soon settled into farm life enjoying the welcome treats, the log burner, feeding the adorable goats and making the most of the well equipped games room on site ( a huge hit with all - from the 10 year old to the 73 year old!) The kitchen/dining and living area being high-end yet homely made it a perfect environment to spend time altogether as a family. All bedrooms were spacious and very comfortable with plenty of toilets/showers for the 11 of us. Due to the raging storm we probably enjoyed even more time in the Hayloft than we had planned and will definitely return for a family weekend in the future.

Simply stunning 🤩
Wow 🤩.. Our family of 8 adults and 3 children stayed for the weekend to celebrate a 70th birthday and what a wonderful time we had! The accommodation was immaculately clean with ample space for all, with very high quality fixtures and fittings. The kitchen was well equipped with a double fridge, freezer and 2 dishwashers (even 2 kettles), and a lovely welcome gift of fresh eggs, biscuits, coffee, a bottle of fizz and more was also received. The owners really have thought about everything so you have a fantastic stay. We enjoyed the games room which not only had a pool table and table tennis but also had an abundance of board games, books and activities to keep everyone occupied. We hired an outside chef to cook for us on the Saturday night and had a super Sunday dinner in the village at the Cock and Pullett. Plenty of local walks and a gorgeous log burner as a focal point to warm us up on our return… I would recommend 100% for anyone who is interested in staying here and we will definitely return. Thankyou for a perfect family weekend ❤️

Perfect venue for larges group celebration weekend.
A fantastic weekend celebrating with old college friends in the hayloft. It was the perfect venue, huge sitting area, beautiful dinning area, perfect kitchen with two oven and two dishwashers, perfect for a large group. The games room has an area selling farm produce - best sausages I’ve eaten. John and Julia’s help when we were planning our weekend was much appreciated.

Our holiday at the Hayloft barn in Derbyshire
The Hayloft barn was just like the pictures perfect for a large family holiday it was well equipped in a perfect setting and close to all surrounding attractions. Supermarket close by. I would highly recommend a stay in one of their lovely converted barns you won't be disappointed. The hosts were lovely and very friendly and helpful and they have catered for all our needs. My 4 grandsons had a wonderful time they could run around in a safe environment enjoying all the animals and play areas inside and out. I would highly recommend you check it out. Thanyou for a great holiday hopefully we will come back one day.

Great venue for a family get together
Our family had a great week end at The Hayloft to celebrate a 50th birthday. The barn conversion was just perfect in every way, from the owners friendly welcome, the excellent level of cleanliness and carefully thought through room layouts, the ample social areas for the eleven of us to chat, cook, relax, BBQ and eat together. The Manor House Farm sausages and lamb burgers were delicious. The adjacent, spacious and well equipped games room was ideal for an intergenerational table tennis tournament. The views from the outside seating area were spectacular and we loved the presence of spotted pigs, sheep and poultry nearby. . We walked by field paths to Bakewell for the annual Carnival and sampled the famous puddings. Next day we cycled the Monsal trail, hiring bikes from peakblackwellcyclehire.com It was a perfect venue for the occasion.

Wow! What can I say!!!
I brought my students here for a three night yoga and wellness weekend and it was perfect. In fact there isn't one single thing that I would change about it. Julia and John were so friendly and welcoming and were willing to help me in any way. We used the large barn for my classes which to be truthful in December took a bit of heating as it is such a large space but I was provided with extra heaters to keep my student warm and this was perfect. The house was so cosy and welcoming and had everything that you could possibly need for your stay and was beautifully finished along with Christmas decorations to make us all feel festive as well as a generous welcome gift. The beds and bedding were super comfy and all of the bedrooms were very similar to each other so no one felt like they missed out on a better room than someone else. The sitting area, dining area and kitchen space had ample room for everyone to be together comfortably and the local area is so pretty with fabulous walks on the door step and spectacular views. I have booked to come again with some different students in January and hope to hold more retreats here in the future. Thank you both so very much for such a wonderful, memorable stay. I can't recommend you enough 🙏

Amazing Barn conversion in beautiful Dales countryside
Wow! The quality of the Hayloft is simply stunning. The character of the building remains but modern fittings have been added tastefully to add outstanding levels of comfort. We were a party of 11 celebrating several postponed anniversaries and birthdays. Everyone thought that their bedrooms and bathroom/showers added to the level of comfort. We couldn't find fault anywhere. the whole buiding was spotlessly clean Just 4 miles from Bakewell the farm has wonderful views accross the Dales and there are several nice walks starting from the farm gate. John and Julia made us very welcome and have put in a huge amount of effort to create a wonderful ambience. We were able to buy produce direct from the farm. The huge games room provided good fun in the evenings. We would certainly like to stay here again

Luxury accomodation in the Peak District
Just spent the weekend with a group of 12 adults staying in the Hayloft. Accommodation was immaculate exceeding our expectations with everything you could possibly need provided. The cottage is tastefully decorated and finished to a high specification. All of our guests commented on how impressed they were both with the standard of their facilities and the location. Easy access to walks leading to Monsal trail, Ashford in the Water and Bakewell. Local pub was a five minute walk serving great home cooked food. Highly recommended.
