Excellent 100% recommend
Excellent cottage, amazing views, well equipped couldn't ask for more. Brian Julie and Angela couldn't do enough for us. Absolutely brilliant hosts. Second visit here in 5 years and they remembered us and there generosity is second to none. Cant recommended the Byre enough. Wonderful company amazing place.

A hidden gem
A beautifully decorated, immaculate property with all the home comforts you could wish for. You can sit on the private patio overlooking rolling countryside and watch the sun set. The owners were helpful and friendly without being intrusive. Easily accessibly for many of the Peak District's villages and attractions. Would highly recommend staying here - Fabulous place.

Ideal retreat
Idyllic place to stay. We can't praise this enough. The facilities were great, the cottage and it's decor were stunning. A wonderful welcome from the owners. Not one fault other than we should have stayed longer! Will definitely go back.

The cottage is lovely and the owners are extremely friendly, helpful and generous. It is located on a reasonably quiet narrow country lane so sleep quality is great, as are the comfy beds. It's a great location to explore the Peak District from either by car or to go for a walk. The animal rescue farm nearby is of interest, and the owners welcome visitors. All in all the owners gave us a holiday week to remember and the hard work they are putting in will only add to the excellence of the place.

If it's available book it
The Byre is situated on a narrow quit country lane near the village of Hollington and is a very nice barn convertion adjacent to the owners cottage. Brian & Julie have done a great job renovating the area, along with other members of their family, and continue to make improvements, which are in no way intrusive to any "rentees" such as us. The cottge as lovely views of the countryside with sheep grazing in the adjacent field and a nosey male Alpaca looking in from over a far fence of the animal rescue farm next door. The owners of the rescue farm welcome you to visit and see their animals. Brian & Julie are wonderful, friendly and helpful hosts and even gave freshly layed eggs and newly picked raspberries and also leave some welcome goodies for arrivee's. The cottage is immaculate, very clean, finished to a high standard. While the reception for mobile phones is not very good, a downside dependent on your view point, it is the norm for these type of areas, the wi-fi is great. The cottage is an excellent base for exploring the area with Carsington Water well worth a day out. The Red Lion in Hollington does very nice food and drink at reasonable prices while for something more adventurous but more expensive try the Saracens Head in the village of Shirley. Shirley is about an hours slow walk from The Byre. This type of review is supposed to give the con's as well as the pro's but the only negative thing I can see is that when we next decide to visit the Peak district The Byre will be booked solid, so I am cutting our own throats with this review, BUT, it is that good.
