Tom's Barn & Douglas's Barn - Peak District, Cheshire, Derbyshire & Staffs

From ancient cowshed to romantic luxury for two

Every guest is special to us and warmly welcome. You will sense this, we hope, from the moment you book; once here, the peaceful surroundings and beautifully equipped barns will convince you. Understated luxury and lots of unexpected touches and ‘little extras’ will help you to make the very most of your holiday, whether relaxing, reading, walking, exploring, cooking lovely meals with local food or eating out in one of the excellent nearby pubs.

Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns started life a couple of centuries ago as rather mundane farm buildings, housing cows. Transformed now into two charmingly romantic cottages, they are enjoyed and appreciated these days by couples of all ages who delight in the opportunity to enjoy precious time together in welcoming luxurious comfort, in an idyllic rural village setting with instant access to the countryside and walks galore, within easy reach of Chatsworth, Haddon, Tissington, Carsington Water, Buxton Opera House…

Tom’s Barn exudes a warm, welcoming cosy atmosphere, combined with a sense of airiness and space. With its beams, original wooden lintels, log burner and pine kitchen it is more ‘farmhousey’ than Douglas’s Barn.

The low roof truss in the bedroom, the deep two-seater whirlpool bath, the enormous south-facing window, our Australian son-in-law’s paintings high up on the walls... all make it quite special.

‘Tom’s Barn really does have the ‘wow’ factor 110%.'

Well-behaved dogs welcome. Log burner – unlimited logs.

Douglas’s Barn has a more contemporary feel than Tom's Barn. Much of its unique charm comes from the odd shapes and quirky angles of the old building, which provide a striking backdrop for the modern five star glass, stainless steel and leather 'luxury' within. There are original paintings by local artists downstairs, while a subtle trace of Africa is to be found upstairs (where, incidentally, the extra long bed is a boon for taller people!). Power shower over whirlpool bath.

A recent guest described Douglas's Barn as 'a wonderfully calm and peaceful place.”
