What a beautiful place. Very tranquil. A lovely barn conversion. Gorgeous furnishings and well kept. Everything you should need was there. It is secluded and quiet. It was lovely for our two dogs too. A wonderful stay. X

The perfect place
We visited Grey Roofs in November 2021. We were on the lookout for a dog friendly holiday cottage, and are so happy we stumbled across Grey Roofs. A real home-from-home, we could not ask for more from this lovely barn conversion. Attached to Calwich abbey down a secluded track, it's perfect if you're looking for a peaceful location - there's also a very good pub a short walk or drive away which is handy! The accommodation is extremely dog-friendly, and our two dogs thoroughly enjoyed their holiday too! The accommodation is very secure, with its own courtyard where the dogs could run around - there was also a dog kennel if you wanted to go out and leave them at the accommodation. Inside, the accommodation didn't disappoint. It was very clean and luxurious. We especially enjoyed having the woodburner lit in the evenings. The kitchen was lovely and to say it's 'fully equiped' is an understatement - it has literally everything you could need! Dean (the owner) who lives in the barn next door was extremely welcoming and happy to answer any questions and offer help if needed. We have already recommended Grey Roofs to so many people, and we cannot wait to return.

Just returned from this lovely cottage. Dean the owner was very helpful. Very comfortable, Homely and cosy. The cottage is in a beautiful location and very dog friendly. Fully secure garden. Very clean and well maintained. Would highly recommend

Absolutely amazing, owner is very helpful, very well furnished, clean.
We have stayed at Grey Roofs a number of times, and it never fails to impress. The owner is always extremely helpful if we ever have any queries, and he is extremely welcoming. The cottage itself is very well furnished, they have put a lot of effort into making it a very cosy, clean cottage. During these current times you are always thinking in the back of your mind 'Is this clean enough'? Never once did that question come to my mind, or any of the families mind during our stay. We felt very safe. Finally, the surrounding area is absolutely beautiful, so peaceful. Located a mile or 2 down a farm track, in the middle of no where (you still get very good WiFi). Loads of nice little walks to take your family/pet on. Overall, Grey Roofs is one of the best we've ever stayed at, we've stayed atleast 3 times and it certainly won't be the last. 10/10 on everything, would recommend to anyone.

Very comfortable accommodation
My second stay at Grey Roofs and once again it was brilliant. Very well furnished and extremely comfortable beds with plenty of kitchen equipment to manage self-catering if eating out isn't an option at the moment. Perfect for dog walking in the adjoining fields and a good location for exploring Derbyshire and Staffordshire. Dean the owner is very helpful and pleasant.
