Two luxury character properties for couples in the heart of the Derbyshire
Dales on the very edge of the Peak District National Park

Set in wonderful gardens in a valley rich in wildlife

Bumble Bee Barn and The Hayloft are two totally unique and beautiful cottages in the Derbyshire Dales. They were formerly farm buildings but have now been lovingly converted while retaining their character but also providing luxury accommodation for couples seeking a romantic, tranquil and secluded break away from it all in a truly lovely rural setting yet within easy reach of all local amenities.

This tiny hamlet is midway between Matlock and Bakewell in the Derbyshire Dales (Peak District) and nestles just below Stanton Moor with its 9 Ladies Stone Circle, and the historic country houses of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall are only 10 minutes away.

Bumble Bee Barn and The Hayloft both have stunning views over the rambling gardens, private land with free-range chickens and the lovely wooded hillside beyond. Wildlife is abundant in this valley with a wide variety of birds feeding right outside your windows and the local deer frequently visit the private wild flower meadow and hillside beyond.

Walking is direct from the door or within a short drive, with the Tissington and Monsal Trails not far away where you can hire bicycles or take your own.

The market town of Ashbourne and nearby Dovedale lie to the south while Castleton, the Blue John Mines and Ladybower and Derwent Water Reservoirs lie to the north. In fact the whole of the Peak District is within easy reach of Bumble Bee Barn and The Hayloft.
