Excellent accommodation in the heart of the National Park

This tastefully converted barn has 4 good sized, ensuite bedrooms, including a ground floor room and wetroom, which is suitable for someone with limited mobility. It successfully combines traditional style with modern comfort and good decor. Each bedroom has some seating and a flatscreen T.V., wi-fi and ipod dock, so even if you are a large party , the property feels spacious. We were lucky with the weather, but in the cooler seasons there is a woodburner and underfloor heating which must make the barn very cosy. Lots of nice touches, such as sensor mirrors and lighting and my favourite - an american fridgefreezer with an ice-maker. We were very pleasantly surprised by the very good welcome pack and lost no time tucking into a cup of tea and a slice of homemade cake. Outside is a large sunny patio area with picnic tables, bbq and attractive flowerbeds and planters. The unobtrusive, helpful owners live on hand for any problems but at the same time the property is nice and private. It is very well-situated for visiting Bakewell, Buxton and Chatsworth, among other interesting places and attractions and there are good walks from the door , including the beautiful Lathkill Dale. We have stayed in many cottages and this is one of the best. We enjoyed staying here and would love to visit again.

An excellent barn conversion ideal for our family needs.

The property contained all we needed for our family stay including 3 under 5s. The location is ideal for all the Peak District attractions... Buxton, Crich, Matlock, Tissington and Monsal trails. Food in the village pub was great and they provided well for the children.

Perfect barn = perfect holiday

The 6 of us holiday together for a week every October. This was the first time in Derbyshire and we will definitely be returning. Spingle Barn was exceptional. When we arrived the log burner was roaring and the heating was on making the barn warm and very cosy. Everywhere was clean, the furniture and furnishings were beautiful, the kitchen extremely well-equipped and the welcome pack included a home-baked cake and home-made bread. Our every wish had been catered for. All of our criteria was met, indeed exceeded, by Spingle Barn - and that is not an easy task! We ate at the local pub, which was excellent and the staff were all very friendly. In short, we cannot recommend Spingle Barn enough. We will be returning!

Absolutely excellent

We received the stay an Spingle Barn as a Brithday gift with a family group of 8 people age range 6 week to 84. The facilities were absolutely first class and we had a relaxing pre christmas stay, the general feeling from the family was that we should do the same again next year. The owners had added to the christmas spirit providing tasteful Christmas decorations both inside and out the only complaint is they didn't provide a light dusting of snow to complete the magic. The welcome pack was to a very high and personal standard with home baked bread and to the joy of one little girl an excellent chocolate cake among other basic additions. This place is a little gem which is a credit to the owners and i would highly reccommend you stat there. One little note the pictures on the website don't really do the place justice.
