“Lovely cottage, great location”

This cottage is beautiful. Th furnishings and fittings are of a very high standard. It is cosy and comfortable and ideal for a family or group of friends.
The owners are very helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

The cottage is perfectly situatied for exploring The Peak District. Sadly our stay was only for two nights between Christmas and New Year so the opportunities to explore the trails and natural beauty of the surroundings were limited.
It is a perfect base with all the comforts of home and I have no hesitation in recommending the accommodation.

Thank you for sharing such a fabulous review with us, we couldn't be happier that you had such a lovely stay! It is wonderful to hear that you felt so at home, and that you were impressed with the finish of the property. We would love to have you back again soon, perhaps for a longer stay next time so you can really explore what the area has to offer!

“Beautiful cottage, excellent location!”

A small but beautiful cottage, very comfortable with everything one would hope for.
In an excellent location for getting around to see all the sights, within 30mins you could easily be in Ashbourne or Bakewell. Chatsworth & Haddon Hall are only a short drive away.
It's great to have a pub just over the road that serves good honest food,
It's so quiet considering its in the middle of the village.

“Small but cosy”

We have stayed at Dragon Hill Barn now on a number of occasions. Usually over New Year period with a couple of friends. The cottage is always clean & tidy, wifi & all you would expect. The storage heating can be a bit cool in the afternoon but is quickly backed up by the roaring log burner. The only problem is then, the bedrooms are roasting through the night. Brassington village is a lovely place to be at New Year. The 2 local pubs are warm & welcoming & have great food & ales. We love Dragon Hill Barn although it's an acquired taste.

“Great cottage - relaxing family stay”

The 2 bedroomed cottage (1 kingsize & 1 twin) is conveniently located to explore the Peak District. The cottage has lots of extra facilities (books; dvds; local walk leaflets; board games; free wifi - TIP take your laptop/tablet etc) The electric, towels and bed linen are included. There is no mobile 'phone reception but a land line 'phone is provided with free weekend & after 7pm on week day calls. There is no shop in Brassington so remember to shop when you are out & about or use the grocery vending machine in the Miners Arms car park. The Miners Arms pub is opposite and there were 2 other pubs in the local area. A great comfy cottage made extra cosy by the log burner.

Thank you for your review, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Dragonhill Barn. The owners continue to keep the modest outside seating area both pretty and useful, with garden furniture, flowers and small trees as well as a BBQ.
