We had a very comfortable stay with our daughters (aged 12 and 8) at The Byre this year. Upon arrival we were greeted by owners Helen and Tony who were very friendly indeed and eager to help us with any question or little problem. Inside there were fresh scones with clotted cream and strawberry preserve to welcome us after our journey from Harwich.
We come from The Netherlands and had never visited this part of the UK before. We were pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the Peak District and the interesting sights in and around Derbyshire. The Robin Hood Festival in Sherwood Forest, Treak Cliff Cavern, Haddon Hall and the village of Tissington are but a few of the many interesting and entertaining sights in the region.
Would I recommend this cottage to others? Yes indeed!
Stayed at the Byre near Belper and what excellent accommodation, one of the cleanest holiday places I have ever visited, lots of welcoming touches too. Helen and Tony make you feel very welcome and are charming too. I would thoroughly recommend a stay here.
Lovely cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay.Really lovely owners we were made to feel very welcome.
What a fabulous place! The location is beautiful. When we arrived and drove up Helen and Tony’s drive, passing their bungalow, we immediately had a good impression as their front garden is so well looked after. The small ornamental lamp posts bordering the drive completed the picture. As we got out of the car Helen and Tony came out of their property to give us a warm welcome.
The Byre is behind their bungalow – not overlooked and with plenty of space to park the car. It is a pretty property with a front patio (including patio furniture) with flowers and large potted shrubs around the edge.
Inside, the property is spacious yet cosy, and everything is immaculate. The living room is well presented and includes books and board games. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need, including a dishwasher. There is also a large downstairs bathroom.
Upstairs there are two large bedrooms, each with an en-suite. Also, both bedrooms have full-length mirrors which every woman needs but doesn’t always get, either in rentals or hotels. Helen and Tony have thought of everything and I really do mean everything. When we arrived there was even milk in the fridge and scones with jam and clotted cream …as I said …everything. We were really pleased with The Byre and could find no faults. We would most definitely recommend it. Well done Helen and Tony and thank you.
A great location and fabulous accommodation. Loved our stay here and we felt relaxed from the moment we arrived. Owners are kind and friendly and yummy scones were left for us on arrival. So spacious inside and lots of thoughtful little extras that make it well equipped e.g. Hairdryer in both rooms. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.
