Cosy and with a real ‘wow’ factor, this charming, semi-detached barn conversion is located in the village of Bonsall and is a delightful and picturesque place for a relaxing getaway or a walking/cycling holiday in and around the Peak District National Park. Bailey’s Barn, dating from the 1700s, is a truly wonderful place to stay. The feel of the barn is welcoming with a collection of original and limited edition art, a cosy wood burner, and very high ceilings revealing the ancient beams supporting the barn roof. With ultra-controllable instant electric heating and well-furnished throughout, it offers an open plan living and kitchen area, and a separate bedroom (choose from super kingsize or twin bed layout) with an en-suite. There is a private off-road parking space, bike storage and courtyard garden with feature lighting and an original ancient cheese press. Bailey’s Barn is set all on one level, with level access and 83cm doorways. The thoughtfully designed stone barn is one of the very few homes in Bonsall which is inside the Peak District National Park as well as Bonsall Conservation Area. Ideal for walkers, couples and dogowners, it is within an easy stroll of fields, footpaths and The Limestone Way. Bailey’s Barn is well set up for walkers, with a useful heated cupboard for drying coats and boots and an outside tap for washing wellies and dogs. The property is most welcoming for dogs, with a special welcome gift and cosy clean bedding available. Set approximately 900 feet above sea level, on top of the highest hill for many miles around, the views are outstanding and the walking and cycling extremely rewarding. There are many trails which start straight from the barn – it is an ideal opportunity to park-up, put the car keys away and just relax! Bonsall is a historic village, within 5 minutes’ drive of Matlock and Matlock Bath, and local to Chatsworth House and many other historic attractions. Based in the Peak District, the barn is a great base from which to explore the beauty and majesty of the region’s peaks, dales and rivers. With its own quirky traditions such as Bonsall Carnival, International Hen Racing Championships, ancient buildings and History Trails, Bonsall is a delightful find with two pubs and a lovely tea room all within half a mile or so. The owners live on-site, and are on hand to help with any queries, give advice about dog walking and any other questions. Shop and pub 500 yards, restaurant 2 miles.

    A lovely little cottage wonderfully equipped for us and our two dogs. The only drawback is that the living space is small so if you have really wet weather, as we did, then it feels a little cramped. That is the only reason we did not score it a 10. The owners are very friendly and helpful and even sent on a jacket which we left behind. We loved the extras- treats for us and the dogs. The drying cupboard is a great idea.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thanks for your review. The living area is cosy which is why we spent a lot of time designing those little touches which make it super efficient and comfortable. Better luck next time with the weather.

    What a little gem we found! A beautiful bijou barn, lovely and comfortable with everything you need and more! The welcome treats for humans and dogs alike were a lovely touch. We had such a relaxing stay despite the rain and would recommend a visit! Thank you Lynn (and Gordon for the wonderful flapjacks).

    The accommodation is just the right size for a couple sharing. The owner is simply wonderful, tending to every single need. The design of the converted barn space is so impressive. The cleanliness, crockery, electrical equipment, utensils, fire and the many, many little clever extras are a delight. The welcome pack in the fridge was a welcome bonus. I couldn't recommend the barn more for its purpose. The barn's location itself is lovely with terrific views from the garden: it is better to walk/drive further afield than the local village which is short of amenities and charm. Great places to visit are a short walk and drive away.
