This fantastic, detached cottage located in rural countryside on the owners' working farm in Atlow, near Ashbourne, can sleep eight people in four bedrooms.

Closes Barn is a wonderful, detached cottage, located on the owners’ working farm in quiet, rural countryside, in the hamlet of Atlow near Ashbourne. The cottage offers a king-size double bedroom, two further double rooms, and a twin room, all boasting their very own en-suite bathroom or shower room. There is a mezzanine kitchen with a small breakfast bar and a sitting room featuring a dining area. Outside, there is off road parking for four cars and a patio with furniture. Closes Barn is the perfect base for families and friends seeking to uncover the delights of Derbyshire and the Peak District.


We weren?t overly impressed
This was a tale of two halves. Some good points: the kitchen was generally well equipped, the bathrooms were nice, the sitting room big enough for all of us. But all this was as expected, for the price. The place is let down by the details though. The toaster will toast one slice of toast at a time. The mattresses are the cheapest possible and VERY uncomfortable. The view from the windows is industrial at best...don?t expect anything idyllic or rolling countryside. The advertised pool table has no adult cues...disappointed teenagers. The cottage is a triumph of style over substance. Oh and we never saw the owners, with the exception of being shouted at moments after we arrived by a random man angry that we?d opened a door we ?weren?t allowed to open?. No idea why the key was in the back door if opening it is such a problem but hey. Two other comments...there are biblical amounts of flies in the property. Clouds of them rise from every service as you move about. Thousands of them. Take spray, sticky papers, traps with you and be prepared to learn to live with them. And don?t believe the Sykes App when it lists the restaurants that are 100m away...it?s a 20 minute drive. Check google maps before you book!

Perfect for a family holiday
Location is lovely! House is very nicely furnished with quality linens and towels and everything we needed. Owners were easy to contact and very helpful. We stayed to celebrate my parents 40th Wedding Anniversary, we would book again and recommend to others.

Glorious pre Christmas break with friends
Myself and 3 female friends stayed here for a long weekend as a pre Christmas break. The barn is spacious, well decorated and fully equipped. The beds and furniture were very comfortable. The main reason for choosing this property was that it had 4 bedrooms all ensuite. The facilities did not disappoint. It was lovely being surrounded by the farm with the horses and the donkeys. It's only a short drive away from Ashbourne, Carsington Water and many other local attractions. We couldn't have asked for anymore (except for a pub within walking distance!) A few minor gripes (and they are minor as I've still rated this as excellent) It took 3 attempts to contact the owner for the key safe code. 2 voice mail messages were not returned. The owners did not check on us during the stay just to say a quick hello and make sure we were happy. There could have been more information in the folder about what items of rubbish to put in which wheelie bin and about how the heating worked. Would love to stay here again.

We had a lovely week in Closes Barn, plenty of space for our party. All bedrooms being en-suite was an added bonus. We would highly recommend the accommodation and there is plenty to do in the area.
Mrs Willey

Closes Barn was warm and cosy. The showers were excellent and the beds were very comfortable. Everything that you could possibly need is provided for. It was particularly well kitted out for my 18 month old niece. We all absolutely loved the property and agree that it is one of the best places that we have stayed in.
