The accomodation is beautiful and well kitted out for a family of four. The beds are very comfortable and the showers powerful and hot, just what you need for a relaxing break.
Andrea and her family were very helpful especially to our inquisitive boys :-). The animals were loved by our boys, Boris and Chicco are sorely missed!
The location is beautiful with so much to do, a week was not long enough. We managed to fit in walks around Dovedale, Bunster Hill, Ilam & Thorpe Cloud. Bike rides around Carsington Water and along the Tissington trail plus days out to Sudbury Hall and Crich Tramway Museum incl many ice cream pit stops.
We love this part of the country and we wil be back again.
We had a lovely break at Winnow Stables; the stables are perfect for four people with two good size double rooms with en-suites and a big open plan living area.
A great spot for exploring the Peak District with lots of walks and pubs close by and plenty of excellent sights and towns a short drive away.
We had a delightful short stay in this very picturesque spot in the Peak district. Winnow Barn ticked all the boxes - lovely decor, lovely countryside on your doorstep, cute market town nearby and nice warm wood-burner to curl up in front of at the end of the day. The animals were a plus for the kids too. Highly recommended for a quick de-stress.
The cottage was everything we thought it would be from the pictures. It is been converted and decorated with style using quality materials. It's cozy but uncluttered, beautiful tall ceilings with beams but always lovely and warm. The log burner was really lovely to come home to after long walks around the area. The kitchen has everything you need and the beds were really comfortable. The farm itself has a lovely atmosphere with goats and donkeys and we were greeted on our arrival by Thomas the cat! The owners are really helpful and friendly but not at all intrusive which is really important when you want to get away from it all. The best way for me to recommend this cottage is by saying that I will be going back the next time I plan a trip to the Peak District. Really, really happy!!
First of all Andrea was extremely helpful and really understood what her guests need!
In terms of the cottage, we can confirm it was 5-Star in terms of the quality of fittings, appliances, bedding and bathrooms so if you really looking for a luxury spec cottage then look no further!
For anyone coming from the south of England and wanting a central location within the Peak District National Park then this was it! The main activities you would want to do from amazing walks, to bike rental/trails and horses, all are approx 10-15 mins drive from the cottage. There is also Ilam village and river trail with the stepping stone crossing only a few minutes away.
In short all the natural (postcard) beauty you would associate with the Peaks is here and easily accessible which is key when you've already driven for a few hours to get there.
To top it off you also have access to the owners own farmyard and animals, from cats, hens and goats which are excellent for the younger kids.
In short if your looking for a few therapeutic days of sheer beauty then look no further.
