The Barn at Mead Farm is a truly special place on the doorstep of the Pennine Way. With views throughout the Hope Valley, and the iconic Lose Hill, Win Hill and Kinder Scout range right on your doorstep it really is the perfect place to come and get away from it all.
The Barn has been lovingly rebuilt in the original stone to reflect its history but with the benefits of modern living within. The bedrooms feature vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and trusses. The ground floors are fully tiled with underfloor heating, with traditional radiators in the bedrooms. The original barn has been divided into two adjoining cottages, the smaller being The Acorn which sleeps two and the larger being The Oaks which will sleep up to five, all with ensuite bedrooms.
Light and airy with a contemporary feel, The Barn is an ideal place to relax after a long day exploring the area whether walking, cycling or sightseeing and taking in the many local attractions. Both cottages are totally non-smoking, as are the patio and barbeque areas.
Both cottages have central heating and are fully equipped with everything you will need for a home away from home. We provide all towels and bedlinen.
There are paved patio areas to the front and rear of the barn, both enjoying superb views across the Hope Valley. There is a sheltered patio with picnic tables and barbeques for the summer months where you can enjoy views over Win Hill. Guests are also welcome to explore the private farmland where we have a flock of 50 sheep grazing with their lambs in the spring season.
There is off road parking provided in front of the barn with space for three cars. Further parking space is available if required and also lockable storage for bikes and other outdoor equipment.
Mead Farm is situated in the heart of The Peak National Park with easy access to walks in every direction. With views to both Win Hill and Lose Hill, it is in an area of outstanding beauty, but within easy reach of local amenities.
The village of Hope is about 10 minutes walk away and has local shops and pubs. All of the major supermarkets deliver so if you want to order groceries online we are happy to receive them and pack them away ready for your arrival. There is a fridge and freezer in both cottages, and plenty of storage space for groceries.
The railway station is about two miles away from the village and is on the main Manchester to Sheffield line. There is a bus route which runs through to Sheffield from Castleton.
Castleton is the busiest village in the area with plenty of places of interest to visit - The Blue John Mine, Speedwell Cavern, Treak Cliff Cavern, Peveril Castle to name just a few. There are several interesting shops selling jewellery and gifts and a variety of places to eat and drink.
The Barn is a short walk from The Cheshire Cheese Inn just along Edale Road. The Cheese has all the warmth of a traditional English pub with a friendly welcome good food and drink and a great atmosphere. It has a regular folk music night on the first and third thursdays of the month which is a real local institution and great fun.
We provide a welcome pack comprising tea, coffee, milk, bread, butter, jam and cake for an afternoon tea upon arrival. Also included are cleaning materials, foil, cling film and kitchen roll. We also provide bathroom toiletries for your comfort. A high chair and travel cot is available at no extra charge, all you need to do is bring along the babies own special bedding!
Your cottage will be ready for you from 4pm and we ask that it is vacated by 10am on the day of departure.

As a group of four adults the long weekend spent in the barn conversion at Mead Farm was in all our opinions faultless. Finished to a very high standard and immaculately clean it didn't feel as if you we're in rented accomodation. The barn was not lacking for anything, local walks outside the front door and plenty more within a 10 minute drive. We ate in the local pub 2 nights all of a 2 minute walk and ate in Castleton, where there is a better selection the other night (£5 taxi ride). We would highly recommend this accommodation should you ever be looking to rent in the area, I would be surprised if you would find anywhere better!!! Although the owners live next door we only saw Chris when we handed the keys back, which is always a good sign!
Four of us stayed for a long weekend. Everything that we needed was provided. There was a lovely welcome from Chris and a delightful welcome pack of home made scones, jam and butter to greet us at the end of our long journey.
The local area has amazing views and walks which we enjoyed. The local town of Castletown had a Christmas light switch on and the town had a really warm party atmosphere. We enjoyed a local Sunday lunch in the Cheshire Cheese Inn following the Church service at St. Edmunds on St Edmunds day.
Perfect for a quiet retreat of any length as there is so much to do within easy reach.
This really is a great place to stay in stunning surroundings.
The owner Chris is very friendly from initial contact through to saying good bye, keen to offer any local guidance also. The house has great character, spacious, lovely décor, clean and everything you would need including fast WIFI which was so important for the teenagers!
Hope and the surrounding area is really beautiful and 'hope' to return in the near future.
The Barn Cottage was supurb, very well furnished and comfortable, nice to have an en suite for each bedroom. In a lovely part of Derbyshire with surrounding walks from the cottage. Our family would highly recommend this cottage.
We had a lovely 3 night stay in Oak Barn to enjoy an indulgent weekend of sewing our patchwork and quilting projects. The accommodation was excellent throughout and the location superb.
