We stayed at the Ballfields Barn for 3 nights 7-10th June 2018.
Firstly the accommodation is 1st class, so comfy with all the mod cons you could ever dream of. The barn itself has been beautifully converted, decor is lush and the woodwork is spectacular.
The location is brilliant - our 3 year old loved the nature reserve and loved the cows in the neighbouring fields. He also loved spotting all the bird that visited the barn’s garden - which included a woodpecker (this was the first one i’d ever seen in real life).
The barn is only 15 minutes drive from Alton tower - which my son totally loved. Additionally leek is a 5 minute drive, this was handy for getting shopping.
I would definitely visit again - a real home from home. The barn is stunning and you could never tire of the views and there is loads to do. 10/10.
Lovely stay, really nice accommodation done to a high standard. Beautiful surroundings.
Some lovely dog friendly pubs and great dog walks a short drive away.
Hosts were very accommodating.
The barn is located in a quiet area and is next to a bird sanctuary. We enjoyed the lovery walks in Peak Discrict. It's only a short drive to places like the potteries near Stoke-on-Trent and National Trust properties. Isabel and Brian were very welcoming and helpful. The barn was fully equipped and cosy, we had a lovery stay despite the snow hail and rain. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
