“Fantastic little getaway”
Reviewed March 4, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Our second time at the Sheep shack, great location for walking. Walking distance to town for essentials. Cosy log fire, all the facilities you need for a week end away. It is tastefully decorated and clean. Thank you Michael for the use of your lovely property.

“GREAT VALUE, GREAT OWNER, GREAT PLACE!”
Reviewed May 30, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

I stayed at the sheepshack for a week with a friend of mine, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owner has made the whole process easy and friendly. The Barn itself is cosy and quiet which is excellent for chilling out from the busy city life. We liked the area too where the Barn is, lots of walks up to the hills and it's not far from the main village where you could get your food shopping done. Cannot recommend it enough, I will definitely try and come back for more stay in the future!

“Amazing, great value, beautiful views, a lovely break indeed”

person found this review helpful

I had a wonderful week at the Sheep Shack which is situated in one of the most gorgeous places with some of the most spectacular views in the Peak District. The Sheep Shack is great value and has been done out to a high spec with a wet room, sunken kitchen and homely lounge with wood burning stove and underfloor heating throughout. There was even a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived. The Sheep Shack is secluded and immediatley felt like home from home. Hayfield, the nearest villiage, has four great pubs and is a really friendly, but unspoiled village with a lovely cricket pitch in the middle. In short i highly recommend the Sheep Shack for a peaceful, relaxing, great value break away from it all.

“Perfect”
Reviewed April 9, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Stayed for 4 nights, a perfect place to relax. the only noise comes from the sheep and baby lambs! lots of walks close by, also within walking distance of the village.The shack is just fab, everything you need, also instructions on how to find or use anything. BBQ to use in the warmer months with seating area in small garden.

“Beautiful cottage, fantastic tranquil location.”
Reviewed August 6, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We stayed for 3 nights in this beautiful farm building renovation. We had booked after finding the 'Sheep Shack' website but the cottage and its location exceeded all our expectations. The views all around are fabulous and it is so peaceful.We had lovely weather during our time there and enjoyed sitting out on the patio at the end of the day simply admiring the fantastic views and listening to the stream below! It is an excellent location for walking with walks from the door in every direction.
The whole cottage is furnished/equipped to a very high standard.We found there to be many items of equipment which you would not normally expect to find and which enhanced our stay.
Our family group consisted of 3. The main bedroom and ensuite are upstairs and the small bedroom downstairs with bunkbeds that comfortably slept our 6ft 16yr old! It did however not have any storage in this room but this was not a problem for us.
We did not use the car much during our short break but the newly created private parking space did provide a challenge to get in/out of and would be even more challenging with a bigger car (we have a Toyota Prius).
We took food etc with us but basic supplies are available in the village although that is quite a walk if you just wanted to nip out for something. During the summer the camp site at the bottom of the hill has a VERY small shop but sadly when we walked down on our first morning for a daily paper was told you have to order them!
We would love to return here and felt very sad leaving after our short break.
