Overview

About the property

Sleeps 6 in a tranquil location on a no through road - cycling & walking from the door

The Barn at Ivy House Farm offers up to 6 of you, warm, contemporary, self-catering holiday accommodation and the perfect base for a relaxing break or an activity-based holiday.

The Barn is situated down a quiet no-through road in the village of Warslow, in the Staffordshire Moorlands at the southern end of the Peak District National Park, close to Alstonefield and Hartington.

The area is criss-crossed with public footpaths, ranging from some suitable for hardy, all-weather, all-terrain ramblers, to those suitable for a stroll with a buggy.

If you're more inclined to travel on two wheels, the Manifold Cycle Track is within one mile of the holiday cottage and the Tissington Trail and Parsley Hay are within easy reach by car.

Chatsworth House, Alton Towers, Haddon Hall, Carsington Water, Cheddleton Steam Railway, Rudyard Lake and Tittesworth Reservoir are all worth a visit and Manchester city centre with it's vibrant shopping is less than an hour away.

Why Lucy Kanan chose Warslow

Ivy House Farm is the most beautiful and tranquil location

What makes this barn unique

Quiet and peaceful except for the occasional (quite often to be honest!) owl hooting. Great skies for watching stars with NO light pollution. Easy access to some fabulous attractions. A fabulous space to socialize with friends and family. Gorgeous walks or cycle rides from the doorstep.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely and relaxing property, very well converted to a high spec. Having three bathrooms is a real plus as is the very well equipped kitchen.

March 2012.



Fab accommodation, the cottage exceeded all our our expectations. We could not recommend enough, great location and a pub within walking distance. We will be back!

Feb 2012.



We had a lovely weekend break. The accommodation exceeded our expectations. Although it was frosty weather the barn was toasty and snug, thanks to a wood burning stove. The bedrooms were spacious and having 3 bathrooms was great for five women! The barn was finished to a high standard.

Very well appointed barn and great for toddlers

  • 4 of 5

Very well appointed converted barn. Open plan top floor fantastic for toddler and crawling baby with the stair gate (also they both loved the toy and book selection!). Kitchen had everything we needed and got good use out of washer/dryer. Bedrooms well appointed and shower really good. Great long weekend and enjoyed some lovely walks in the local area.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

6 of us shared an excellent long weekend in extremely comfortable and well equipped accommodation. The pictures hardly did the Barn justice and the area provided much to see. The weather too behaved itself so drinks in the small courtyard were very pleasant. All of us would be very happy to return for the next 70th birthday.

Fab-u-lous !

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous barn conversion in a lovely part of the Peak District just 20 minutes from Alton Towers. A much nicer place to stay than the hotels there! We enjoyed wonderful weather, great British countryside all in the elegant comfort of this brilliant barn conversion. Thank you!

beautifull place

  • 5 of 5

We spent here a week in July 2015.The place in reality is better than in description. The barn is spacious but cozy and very clean. The hosts arranged it ingeniously so kitchen and laundry facilities are like home. There are plenty of books and leaflets about area so even if you have no idea what to do you can use these as help. The barn is located by quiet lane so you can relax in peace and quiet.

Fab Barn! Fantastic Location!

  • 5 of 5

The open plan design of the barn was fab. If you happened to be on cooking duties then it meant you were still a part of all conversations going on!! The bedrooms were fitted out beautifully and the whole of the barn was spotlessly clean. Lucy was very pleasant and told us the housekeeping rules and then left us to it with the knowledge that she was there if we needed her. Set in a fabulous location we will definitely be coming here again.
