A charming stone cottage in the heart of the Peak District National Park that’s great for a stay with family and friends who want to enjoy the fresh air, countryside walks and stunning views.

Once upon a time, this cottage was a dairy barn and it, along with other buildings on the farm, has been renovated to offer beautiful holiday accommodation in the heart of the Peak District. Located on the outskirts of a traditional village with a well-renowned pub a short stroll away and walks through a stunning valley starting from your door, it’s a great spot for soaking up the country life with family and friends. Adventure activities can be enjoyed in the national park or you can explore charming towns like Buxton, while back at the cottage a cosy log-burner and a delightful garden await, so you can relax come rain or shine.

Why we love this

  • Breathtaking views of rolling fields, farmland and the valley
  • Walk to the local pub for a delicious meal and local ales
  • Enjoy day trips to Chatsworth House and the market town of Bakewell

Exceptional Service

Our award-winning Guest Services team will not only help you find your dream holiday but will support you through every step of your stay.

The cottage has lovely original features including exposed oak ceiling beams and has been decorated in a modern style with warm colours that help you feel at home from the moment you walk through the door.

On the ground floor, there’s an open-plan living/dining area where everyone can happily spend time together. Curl up on the plump sofa seating to watch TV and you’ll be plenty warm enough thanks to the underfloor heating. If you need a little bit of extra heat, or just like the cosy effect of flickering flames, there’s a log burner too. Within this space, there’s a dining table that seats up to eight guests, so if you have friends or family staying in other accommodation at the farm, you can invite them over for dinner.

Whoever is preparing dinner can easily be involved with conversations going on in the lounge area so they don’t miss out. With a country cottage style, the well-equipped kitchen features oak cabinets, granite worktops, a Belfast sink and a double Range oven, as well as a fridge/freezer and a dishwasher.

If you don’t feel like cooking, arrangements can be made for a local catering company to deliver to you, so that pretty much all you have to do is warm the food up. Or, you can book a personal chef to whip up a meal for a special occasion, or even to cook for you every day if you wish.

Meanwhile, the utility room offers space to dry out muddy coats and boots, as well as a washing machine.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms. The master suite has a king-size bed and an en-suite shower room. There’s also a bedroom with a double bed and one with two single beds, plus a family bathroom with a bath and shower over.

At the front of the cottage, there’s a private garden with a lawn that is the ideal place for children to let off some steam, adults to sip a glass of wine, or everyone to enjoy a barbecue on the patio which has a table and chairs for dining alfresco.

The owners live on the site and are available to answer any questions you may have. However, there is a lockbox with a key to allow for a self-check-in. There are other holiday properties on the site and there is ample parking, with this cottage benefitting from a private parking space.

We plant a tree for every booking we make to help offset some of the carbon emissions generated by our stays.

Massage and beauty treatments can be pre-arranged for you to enjoy in the comfort of the cottage.

Location of 'Buttermilk Barn


The neighbourhood

The location is semi-rural and once you’re settled in, there isn’t any need for a car if all you’re after is a relaxing stay with fine Peak District country walks from the door. The local village is about a 5-10-minute stroll away and is very pretty with limestone houses, a duck pond and a pub that serves good ales and food.

The nearest shops are approximately 3 miles away in Eyam. If you want more choice of places to eat and drink, there are plenty of restaurants, cafes and pubs in neighbouring villages and towns. Bakewell is just a 10-minute drive away and here foodies should check out the fine dining options at Fischer Baslow Hall, while history buffs should head to Chatsworth House. The spa town of Buxton is also a short drive, of about 20 minutes, and is a lovely place to explore.

If you’re looking for more action, activities including abseiling, rock-climbing, guided walks and cycling can be pre-arranged by the property owners. Please ask our Guest Services team for details.

Getting around

A car is advised for travelling to this property. There is a local bus service that operates from the pub in the village which is a 5-10-minute walk away.
