Plenty of character. It doesn't get better than this. Low lighting for romantic, classics rests away from work and the big smoke

“Wonderful weekend break”
Reviewed September 1, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Me and My partner stayed here for 3 nights in June for my partners birthday, we wanted somewhere by the peak district and close to Alton Towers as we were going there on the Monday.

Our intentions were to explore the area and walk around, we walked to the nearby village via the pathway at the side of the house and had a lovely meal there, the next day we visited ashbourne and went to Dovedale on the Sunday which was lovely.

To be honest we didnt want to leave the cottage!! it was so cosy and romantic and loved getting cosy by the log fire and watching films on the projector, we took our laptop and had wifi in the room so was able to watch anything on there. We played scrabble and cards and ate in most nights and had a lovely breakfast as everything was there for us in the kitchen. Bed was really comfy and an all round amazing weekend!! Would definatley go back.

Thanks

“Perfect stay for a countryside getaway”
Reviewed July 29, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A lovely converted barn, very nicely decked out. Location is perfect for walkers as you're literally on a walking path straight out of the accommodation. Biggin has a great pub and a hotel to eat at. And there's so much to see locally. Wholeheartedly recommend staying here.

Ramblers barn has walking routes right on its doorstep. Beautiful scenery walking through the valleys and the views across all the fields in the evenings, superb!

“A great place to stay for a scenic and relaxing break!”
Reviewed July 3, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in June and found the accommodation to be more than adequate for what we wanted....a peaceful and relaxing break. We were only a few miles from Buxton, Matlock and Bakewell- all pretty places to explore. We spent one day visiting Chatsworth House ( only a short drive away) which is simply stunning and would highly recommend seeing. On our first night we walked up to the Waterloo Inn pub and had a lovely traditional pub meal with excellent service. Back to the accommodation....the setting is idyllic and the owners have thought of everything, with a welcome pack containing nearby cycle and walking routes among much more. The owners are very friendly and helpful and have made the barn look beautiful. The bathroom is slightly on the small side but adequate. Apart from that I can't fault it and would definitely stay at Ramblers Barn again.

“Wonderful, cosy weekend!”
Reviewed March 7, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Stayed for 3 nights in early February. First night was very cold but once we got the hang of the wood burner the place warmed up nicely. Already missing relaxing in front of the fire! Kitchen was nice, had everything we needed and the underfloor heating was a treat. Barn has been converted to an excellent standard and the entire place was spotless. Surrounding area is beautiful, especially covered in snow. Bakewell and Ashbourne well worth a visit, as well as the Cat and Fiddle Inn on the breathtaking A537. Looking forward to revisiting and exploring more in better weather.

“Perfectly peaceful....”
Reviewed February 13, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed for 4 nights in Feb 2015. The barn was lovely, heated floor and log burner really helped with the chilly nights. Hartington is a 20 min walk away and the Tissington trail is a great bike ride to Ashbourne

“nice and modern with quirky touches”
Reviewed September 23, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

stayed last week (15th - 19th september) and found the place nice clean and spacious. the mezzanine bedroom and high ceiling made the place light and airy although the toilet/shower room was a little snug! kitchen well stocked and big enough for two people to move around.the sitting room / dining area was spacious and had eclectic touches which added a homely feel. was actually nice not to have phone reception - let us unwind completely! a little hard to find as post code on sat nav takes you about a mile away but instructions from owner spot on. good centre to explore from, all in all a pleasant stay
