Rated 'Excellent' on Trip Advisor with 81 reviews rating us 5*.
You will experience the highest standards & modern facilities here, which continue outside with a wraparound patio and a fabulous covered hot tub area, great to soak after those long walks in our glorious surroundings, or to simply watch the dramatic skies we get as you relax at the end of the day exploring the National Park.
"Cannot be beaten"
This was our second two-week visit within six months! For us to return to the same place for a holiday is almost unheard of. When we returned from our first visit, the choice for September was 'Florence or the Barn'. The barn won, hands down! Lynn and Nigel are so welcoming, and the property itself so sublime, everything you could wish for in a holiday. I just hope it doesn't get booked up too quickly next year, so that we can come again ! We will have to time our holiday around the dates when the Barn is not booked up. Lynn and Nigel, you deserve every success.
Liked best: Our friendly dealings with Lynn and Nigel.
Liked least: Having to leave at the end of our fortnight.

The property was "as advertised". I recommend the location. The property was a good value for the price paid. The property provided wifi/internet access.
The barn is fabulous, very pleased to have found it. Everything is pristine and we are very picky customers to please! The food on arrival and the cake were excellent finishing touches that made the whole stay exceed our expectations. We will certainly recommend it to friends and hope to return ourselves at some point.
“Beautiful and luxurious accommodation”
An outstanding barn conversion with exceptional attention to detail. The extras provided such as a lovely homemade meal and bread, fresh eggs and a lovely table all beautifully set for your arrival was amazing. Our trip was for 2 adults and 2 teenagers to go to Alton Towers, which was on 15 minutes drive away. The hot tub was very much appreciated after a hetic day at theme park. My description of this accommodation would not do it justice, it is a must to stay in this accommodation if your planning to visit this area, highly recommended.
“luxurious perfect getaway”
Luxurious barn with everything you could need for a wonderful break. The hot tub to relax in and the extra personal touches 'home made bread,cake and meal on arrival' made our week away perfect .Beautiful location and only a stones throw away from anything you need. Lyn and Nigel should be very poud of their wonderful holiday Barn.
The barn is for guests who enjoy a ‘non smoking’ & ‘pet free’ environment, we sleep 4 + infant, in a luxurious super king double & a cosy twin bedroom.

We book Friday to Friday, giving you the advantage of experiencing a full week end at the start of your holiday & one at the end when you return home too!

The area is fabulous for walking & cycling, there are a number of converted railway tracks offering fairly flat routes through to very challenging routes through the hills & forests, the choice is yours.
If you simply wish to relax & chill out then the barn is the ideal place for this....
We have secure facilities for bikes & alarmed garaging for motorcycles.
Step back in time in this Peak District hamlet: Ford Old Hall is 1567 & Grade II listed, whilst the Barn is a 21st century conversion offering discerning guests the highest of standards with all modern facilities, yet retains the absolute charm of this 16th century farming hamlet which still has that slower pace of life as it is off the beaten track, yet only 15 minutes from the local market towns of Ashbourne & Leek. Located in the south west corner of the Peak district, looking to retreat away from the ‘hustle & bustle’ with fabulous walking country straight from the door, or indeed, want great amenities close by, then look no further than Ford Old Hall Barn which delivers it all. It nestles in this charming farming hamlet getting you right back to a little pocket of rural England, it feels like it's from a time gone by.
Relax the moment you walk through the door!
A real gem for the holiday market, operated by owners with over 15 years experience, previously managing a De-Luxe graded cottage in the heart of the Peak District
