Large Self Catering Accommodation


Situated in the heart of the Peak District National Park, the large self catering Holiday Barn comfortably sleeps up to 24 guests.

The barn is the perfect venue for friends and family to stay together under one roof and is ideal for birthdays, anniversaries, leisure groups, stag or hen dos, reunions and simple weddings. It's equally suited to accommodating corporate groups for training and team building events during the week or over a weekend. 

The barn is a great base for walking, climbing, cycling and caving, with numerous outdoor activities on its doorstep.

It is fully insulated with gas fired central heating throughout and a large multi fuel stove in the lounge, with plenty of drying space in the utility room for wet gear, wellies and walking boots.



‍We want to reassure you that the safety of our guests and staff are our priority at Peak District Holiday Barn.


The barn will have been deep cleaned and disinfected including the most frequently touched areas and items.  Prior to arrival all guests will be asked to confirm if they or any of their party have shown symptoms. Unfortunately, those currently with symptoms, or who are self-isolating, will be asked to visit at a future date.


You will find hand sanitisers in the barn and playroom.

We normally provide you with hand towels for each bathroom - we will not be providing these at the moment, and ask you to bring all of your own towels as you would otherwise do.


Please leave the windows open before leaving. Our cleaners will wear protective gloves to clean and follow upgraded procedures.

All linen will be cleaned by a local professional company.

Many thanks for your support at this time.




The spacious open plan lounge is separated from the dining room by glazed double doors, and features a large multi fuel log burner. It has plenty of comfy seating, a large TV, DVD player, music system, free Wifi and plenty of games. Complimentary logs, firewood and coal are supplied for your first day.


The open plan kitchen/dining area still retains many of the barn's original features including beams and exposed stone. With large farmhouse tables, a breakfast bar and plenty of seating, the area easily caters for large groups.

The kitchen includes 2 electric ovens, large gas hob, microwave, 2 sinks, dishwasher, commercial fridge, freezer and plenty of pans, crockery, cutlery and glasses.

wedding barn playroom
sideview playroom 2


New to the barn is the old cowshed, a large playroom next door to the holiday accommodation barn.  It includes a pool table, darts, table tennis, sofas, a sink and counter, and toilets, as well as a pizza oven.  Two sets of bi-fold doors lead out onto the surrounding lawn and covered terrace. 



We now have a wood burning hot tub available to hire.  Situated on the terrace next to the playroom, it is sheltered from the elements and includes lighting and Jacuzzi jets.


Please remember that you will have to put the work in by lighting and maintaining the heat, similar to lighting a real fire at home,  so please bear this in mind when booking the hot tub. It also takes a few hours to fully heat up.

Hire charge: £250 including logs for a 2 night stay.



Due to the all year round appeal of the Peak District, prices remain the same regardless of holiday period.*

"Just spent a fantastic weekend at the Barn. The photos on the website really don't do the accommodation justice. Beautifully appointed (don't worry about forgetting anything) it was cosy and welcoming. Perfect." Karen Brammer
