Why Sarah Lesley chose High Peak District

Beavers Croft has been in our family for the past seven years and we have spent many wonderful weeks relaxing in its gardens. We especially enjoy its remote location and the sense it brings of being away from it all. If you are feeling active, there are endless activities to choose from on your doortep and if you would rather relax and unwind, what beautiful surroundings to do it in. In the Winter, the barn has a very cosy feel. Perfect for cooking a family dinner and playing board games by the log burner.

What makes this barn unique

The only accommodation close to the beautiful reservoirs and the Howden Dam. Beautiful scenery all around the property.

A weekend to remember!

  • 5 of 5

We have just got back from celebrating my mums 50th over Christmas and NY at Beavers Croft and it was amazing! The barn is in the most stunning location next to the Howden Dam, with loads of walks available from the doorstep. It was beautiful, comfortable and fully equipped with everything we needed. We spent the majority of the time around that beautiful fire! While there is no phone signal, there is WiFi which worked well for us. The nearest towns are Hathersage and Bamford, within a 10-15 minute drive, where there are pubs and tea rooms. Big thanks to Sarah and Steve for making us feel welcome, and also helping us through the snow! A real gem and the perfect spot to get away from it all, would highly recommend!

It is better than the photographs. The garden was radiantly beautiful. And the barn had every modern convenience.

Splendid! Unbeatable location, serene, relaxing, gets you in touch with nature.

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most unique locations we've ever stayed. The proximity to the Howden Dam and the reservoirs within the national park connect you with nature. Wildlife abounds as you walk along the trail to the visitor's center. Great place to get away from it all.

The Peak District National Park offers breathtaking views and plenty of opportunity for adventure. The Derwent Valley, where our property is situated is one of the most popular parts of the Peak due to its attractive mix of beautiful reservoirs, dams and woodland within the surrounding moorland. For families, walkers and cyclists there are endless trails to explore - all of which you will find in our information pack in the barn. Bikes can be hired at the visitors centre down the road and once you are set, nature is right on your doorstep. Picnics by the water, the nature trail and taking a guided walk to explore the highest points of the Peak District are some of our fondest memories at Beavers Croft. Enjoyable days out to Chatsworth House and Bakewell to sample the bakewell tarts, visiting the farmers markets and a Sunday roast in one of the many local pubs are also firm favourites. For the children, there are plenty of farmyards, adventure parks and wet weather options. In the Summer, the gardens at Beavers Croft have a magical feel and in the Winter, boardgames around the log burner keep you feeling cosy. Once you have made your booking we will send you our information pack and you are welcome to contact us with any queries you have. We do hope you enjoy Beavers Croft as much as we do.
