Linda and Keith provided the perfect vacation experience. Friendly owners who have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. The chicken barn was warm and comfortable and gave a home from home experience. Beautifully situated for the best walks in the Peak District. Only a mile walk to hayfield which is a pretty town with great pubs and restaurants. The accommodation has everything you could need and the welcome pack of bread, butter, jam, biscuits, milk, tea and coffee makes it easy to settle in on your first night. There is a large enclosed garden which was great for our pet dog. We enjoyed everything about the place and hope to return in the future.
The location was perfect for exploring. We were on canal boat property. We could walk the towpath to a brand new Tesco superstore. The train was a five-minute walk. Manchester was 30 minutes by train. We were within a half hours drive of some of the best hikes in the high peaks. Whenever we go to the UK we make sure our National Trust membership is up to date but we found the hiking so exhilarating that we only visited one national trust property during our two-week stay. The cottage was cozy, good bath with great water pressure and plenty of hot water. Water from the tap was cool and good tasting. Stairs to the bedroom are a bit steep but a good sturdy handrail. The place could use a place to hang clothes and better reading lights as the living area has only one window. We never once turned on the television.
