The whole of the upstairs floor is taken by one bedroom suite, comprising a super king bed, seating area and a bathroom with a fabulous freestanding bath. Even a tray table by the bath for your champagne flute!Downstairs is a twin room with original truss, and ensuite shower room. There is a small seating area with BBQ and a garden bench outside the kitchen window for you to enjoy your morning coffee.

About the Owner
About Philippa Hibbert
We have lived at Hall Farm for 14 years and have spent the last 9 years lovingly restoring the outbuildings to create 3 barn conversions that we are very proud of!
Julian, my husband is a farmer, so is quite prone to bringing various lambs home in the spring for us to look after, and they tend to get named after guests who are staying! We have two children, George and Annabel, as well as 2 dogs, Dave and Archie, 1 cat, Tasha, and 3 pet sheep, Amber, Lizzie and Bear plus lots of hens, so fresh eggs in plentiful supply!
Why Philippa Hibbert chose Derbyshire Dales
We are Derbyshire born and bred, but met at a 21st birthday in Aigua Blava, Spain! Derbyshire has an array of activities and such stunning scenery within a short distance. Ease of access also a major factor.
What makes this barn unique
