The Experience

Reached via a narrow winding road, the unspoilt village is perched on a plateau between two river gorges, with a church, a green, a pond. And the George, one of the best pubs in Derbyshire: if you fancy a night out, beef, stilton and red wine pie is a stroll away. A tempting plan, after a day’s striding up hill and down dale. As for the barn, it’s a 1720s gem, sympathetically revived, warm and spacious inside and full of quirky pieces. You enter the sitting room (once the cowshed) with its flagged floor, now restored; there’s a cream sofa facing the log-burner, original shutters at windows and farming artefacts on the walls. A separate dining room leads to a super kitchen, then a patio with stunning views; where pigs once huddled, wood worktops and a gleaming range cooker now stand. Your cosy low-ceilinged bedroom is at the other end, and continues the country theme. Guide books, maps, jigsaws, a basket of logs, a hamper of goodies… welcome touches all, and there’s more fun to come at the top of the outside stair: snooker, a piano, a wood-burner, and floor-to-ceiling books!

Reviews

Our second stay in your lovely, cosy, peaceful barn. We found even more fantastic walks and had good weather too. The walk along the Dove into Hartington and return through Narrowdale was our favourite, helped by tea and cake midway! We just love the area and the attention to detail found in the barn. The upstairs room with snooker table and comfy leather sofas is an added bonus - I even managed to finish the jigsaw I worked on in September! Thank you Ruth and Nick.

A lovely, relaxing few days in your perfect cottage. Love the attention to detail, the furnishings and fittings. Wonderful walks right on the doorstep and we had amazing weather, sunshine every day. The icing on the cake was our meal at The George tonight, lovely atmosphere and fab food.

Gail and Les, Hitchin

We visited the lovely Hope Farm House barn over the new year, 2017/8. The accommodation is comfortable, cosy and welcoming for a winter visit, with wood burning stoves and efficient heating and the bonus of a full size snooker table and comfortable library upstairs! The barn is perfect for a couple looking for space and privacy, and ideally located with excellent access to lovely walks in the Peaks District from the door. Also nearby are the villages of Alstonefield with a great pub to eat in and the lovely Hartington with a great village store. We will certainly be back!
