This impressive three bedroom property is able to sleep up to nine people and is situated in the Peak District hamlet of Bottomhouse.

This unique and welcoming barn conversion was originally an 18th Century pigsty situated in the rural hamlet of Bottomhouse. Redesigned to allow an element of flexibility, this property now offers well-equipped accommodation with beamed ceilings and superb views over rolling countryside. The cottage offers two living areas, two kitchens and two shower rooms, making this an ideal cottage for extended families or two couples looking to holiday together but retain their independence. The cottage also comes with optional use of a hot tub and access to a garden and off-road parking.


We stayed here in November for a girls weekend to celebrate two of my friends birthdays. I couldn't fault the place at all, the barn was what we expected and more. And we took full advantage of the hot tub the whole long weekend we stayed there even on the Saturday when it started to snow it still didn't stop us having a good time. It was cosy and the scenery was lovely to look at. The owners Henry and marianne were lovely and pleasant and answered all questions asked to their full knowledge. I am grateful of the experience because you don't realise how long it took me to find a cottage with a hot tub that allowed a young group of girls between 20-23 to enjoy a break away without an age limit of 25 years and over or having to be in couples. Overall it was a weekend to remember and we enjoyed out complimentary bottle of wine too

Curlew Barn was just how it looked in the pictures, only the views were more stunning

Our weekend stay was very good, the owner was pleasant and very helpful. The cottage was lovely and warm on arrival - would definitely go again.

Really enjoyed staying here. Quite quirky. Hot tub was fab and plenty of space in the courtyard outside. Very private too. Would definitely recommend to others and come and stay again.
Mrs Goulding

Fantastic holiday! 5-10 minutes drive to Alton Towers so kids were very happy! Hot tub was amazing-perfect place to unwind with a glass of wine after standing in queues all day! Greeted by the owner when we arrived and was presented with a lovely bottle of rose wine to get our holiday off to a good start. Would visit again!
