We stayed as a family over the August bank holiday weekend for 3 nights, The barn is surprisingly spacious inside and reasonably well equipped in the kitchen for this type of basic accommodation. Our 3 kids had a great time running round outside in the field besides the barn and they slept well every evening despite being in the same big room. There are curtains provided to screen off the bunk beds.
The barn did get cool in the evening and we used the log burner every night. This worked well and heated the barn quickly. (There is a electric heater there too but we didn't need to use this.) We used a full bag of logs over 3 evenings.
The electricity is on a meter. We used a £1 when we got there and didn't need to top it up again although we used the power lots including the kettle and shower.
The location is good for exploring the peak district and we did a walk from the nearby village Wetton to Thor's cave which the kids loved.
We really enjoyed our stay and the barn was beautifully clean and welcoming.
We travelled as a group of five friends and really liked this barn. As the title suggests, it is extremely cozy. The location allows you to start your hikes from the door step, and the local pub is just 500 meters away. The standard of the barn is high, and the bunk beds probably rank among the best bunk beds on the markets - or at least, the best ones we've ever slept in.
We felt that two things could be improved. Firstly, the logs for the wood stove were very big and chunky, and most likely slightly wet. Despite the provided fire crackers, we weren't able to start a fire the second night. We'd recommend the owners to chop them into smaller pieces and make sure they're dry. Secondly, the floors were very cold. Although one probably should expect this in a barn, it would be useful to point this out in the welcome email - simply saying something like "the floors can get cold, we'd recommend you bring a pair of slippers".
Thanks Michelle for letting us stay in your fantastic camping barn, it was just what we were looking for!
Wasn't sure what to expect when I booked but was very pleasantly surprised by the size and facilities in the barn. The large bunk beds were really comfy and loved having a log burner to keep us warm.
Thanks for all your help and tips for places to eat. We had a brilliant time and will definitely recommend your barn to friends.
