Quirky comfotable barn conversion
Lovely barn conversion in centre of tideswell. Within 2 mins walk of great pubs and restaurant. Lovely walks from the door. Log burner great for chilly evenings. fantastic welcome pack!
A very warm welcome from Chloe, made us feel at home immediately in this lovely little cottage. It is a home from home, clean, comfortable and well equipped. Even a dog bed, bowl and treats for Betty.
Great location for the village and local eateries. Couldn't recommend highly enough.
Lovely cosy cottage and very welcoming host
We all agreed how lovely the cottage was, and Chloe the host couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. Hugo my dog also had a fantastic time, as there is a big dog proofed garden for him to play in. We all highly recommend this property and are very much looking forward to our next visit :).
My sister & I stayed in Stanley Barn for a few days last month & it was a perfect location for exploring the delights of Derbyshire. The accommodation was well equipped & very cosy. Lovely to have the toiletries & welcome pack! Chloe was very helpful friendly & welcoming. Would certainly recommend a stay here.
This was the second time our family have stayed at Stanley Barn and we found that the barn and Tideswell village were just as great as on our first trip. The accommodation is really lovely, with our 2 children enjoying there decking level bedroom. Chloe has maintained a high level of cleanliness and her added touches of wine, bread, butter, milk chocolates, and dog treats on arrival were perfect. Another nice touch is having Eco friendly and gorgeous smelling hand soap in the kitchen and bathrooms along with shower gel in the bathroom and a plentiful supply of toilet roll! We were supplied with a large basket of wood for the wood burner which was easily lit every night. We were blessed with some good weather and enjoyed lots of great walks in the area. The village has a lovely bakery where we made daily purchases for our pack lunches and some good cafes (although not all of them allow dogs) and pubs all within easy walking distance. Calling in at The Horse and Jockey after our last days walk, we all had muddy boots and a very muddy dog but we were still made very welcome (they even gave the dog some dog biscuits!) we decided to eat there that evening, the staff were very friendly and the food was great, it was a perfect end to our stay in Tideswell. Thanks again Chloe.
Kind regards Sue and family
Lovely part of the world
The accommodation is altogether lovely, Chloe let us use the driveway and although she offered use of the garden we felt a little awkward using it whilst people lived in the main house (saying that we were out all day and never felt we missed out). The cottage itself is great, the log burning fire was used each night and it was all clean, with everything you needed from loo paper, hand soap, tea & coffee there. The only issue we had was the softness of the master bed mattress, if this could be renewed 5stars would be given.
We would recommend a trip to Chee Dale for those wanting an adventurous walk and also a walk up Jacob's ladder. The Merchant's Yard in Tideswell was lovely to eat at and allowed the dog outside, otherwise walk to Litton to The Red Lion for character where the dogs are welcome & food is tasty.
Thanks Chloe for being a great host.
