Five Star Gold Luxury Self catering Holiday Cottages in the Derbyshire Dales alongside the Peak District National Park with superb views across the Derwent Valley
Maxine and Matt welcome you to Derbyshire, and in particular to Holestone Moor Barns self catering holiday cottages for small and large groups, in the Derbyshire Dales, just 5 minutes drive from the Peak District National Park and Matlock.
The cottages form part of a historic range of farm buildings, perched almost 1,000 feet above sea level and boast 6 acres of woodland, meadow and wildlife pond plus a large garden with seating, barbecues and climbing frame, plus a well-equipped games room & toddlers playroom.
A short drive takes guests to historic market towns, picturesque villages and some of the finest countryside in Britain.
Holestone Moor Barns Holiday Cottages are luxurious conversions from two 200 year old stone farm buildings standing adjacent to our own house, the old farm house, Holestone Moor Farm. We strive to always keep our holiday cottages and surroundings updated, and so we are continually redecorating, replacing and upgrading, both inside and out, in an effort to provide a luxurious ‘home from home’. Our standards are high and for several years now we have been graded at 5* Gold by Quality in Tourism, with 100% for cleanliness, thanks to our wonderful housekeepers. Judging by the comments in our visitors’ books, and the number of guests who return, we must be doing something right!
There’s lots to do for children, both at the Barns (games room with DVD room upstairs) and beyond where you have five acres of land to explore. There’s woodland with a summerhouse, a wildflower meadow, a grassed area for games with climbing castle, swing and slide,barbecues and picnics, and a wildlife pond.
The Barns are utterly peaceful and well away from main roads. At almost 1000 feet above sea level you get some wonderful weather effects, and beautiful starry skies. Sitting out in the evenings over a bottle of wine on a clear night, you may even experience the Northern Lights!
We will be waiting to welcome you when you arrive – no key under the mat or a cold dark house! We live on site and you can benefit from our local knowledge to make the very best of your stay in Derbyshire. On your arrival you will receive a Welcome gift of freshly baked cake/s from our local Riber View Farm shop, eggs from our very own Hens, tea, coffee & sugar sachets and a pint of milk for that all important cup of tea before you unpack.
Because of our proximity to our neighbour’s working dairy farm we regret that we are unable to accept pets
