This property is a beautifully restored detached barn conversion in the village of Farley offering comfortable accommodation for up to 10 people.

This barn is a superb detached conversion in the rural hamlet of Farley on the Alton Towers estate. Contemporary furnishings have been married to original features to provide a dwelling full of character in a tranquil location. The property has a bright and spacious sitting room with a dining area and a lovely open fire set in an impressive fireplace. The large kitchen is well appointed and equipped and boasts a breakfast bar and a dining area. There are five sumptuous bedrooms, a bright and airy bathroom and an equally stylish shower room. Outside the mature garden has a barbecue and furniture to dine al fresco. This is the perfect property for a family get together and to enjoy all that the Peak District has to offer.


The house was wonderful and fully met our expectations. Everything we needed was provided for down to the matches for the fireplace, meaning that all we had to do was bring the food for our meals. We were able to fully relax and enjoy the weekend. The area is lovely and perfectly situated for a walk in the Peak District.

Excellent location and plenty of space within the house.

Wonderful location for visiting Alton Towers with children
We stayed at The Old Barn for a weekend to celebrate a very important birthday as a family, stretching over three generations, and it worked very well. The property is located nearly at the entrance of Alton Towers and you really would not know it. The bedrooms worked really well between the adults and children, clean and very comfortable. Everyone had good nights sleep and had more than enough room for 9 of us. We enjoyed the comfortable living room with space for all of us to enjoy, even the children on a very wet afternoon. A highlight for them was watching a tractor come out of the drive opposite! However, the kitchen was a disappointment. I had to give it a clean before using the surfaces, the table was very wobbly and the fridges had seen better days, one of them barely chilling the food, the other freezing the salad. With limited time there it wasn't practicable to work out the nuances of the apparatus. I know it was the height of the season, but for the amount we paid I would have expected superior equipment. Overall, we had a lovely time and would have loved longer to enjoy the rest of the area which looked lovely. On that basis I would recommend it to a friend, but warn about the kitchen.

All 11 of us had a fantastic holiday! The cottage was very spacious and very well equipped.
Mrs Lumsden

A fantastic stay. It was very easy to organise and pick up keys, and the owner was great and very helpful. Would definitely recommend!
