Why Abdoulaye diaw chose Hope Valley
Beavers Croft has been in our family for the past seven years and we have spent many wonderful weeks relaxing in its gardens. We especially enjoy its remote location and the sense it brings of being away from it all. If you are feeling active, there are endless activities to choose from on your doortep and if you would rather relax and unwind, what beautiful surroundings to do it in. In the Winter, the barn has a very cosy feel. Perfect for cooking a family dinner and playing board games by the log burner.

Little piece of heaven ..
Wow... from the moment you approach. A long windy drive through the forest with spectacular views and you stumble accross Beavers Croft.
An idylic setting in lovely grounds.
A delightful cottage, warm, cosy and welcoming.
Beautifully decorated throughout.
Lovely bedrooms, modern bathrooms with towels provided.
Fully equipped kitchen, open plan to magnificent high ceiling dining/ lounge area.
Tv, games, wood burner and cosy blankets for winter.
Ironing board, iron, hair dryer everything thought of.
Outside a lovely patio, table, chairs, fire pit, bbq and pizza oven, what more do you need.
After a full day out it was lovely to come back to, relax and cook.
Ab is a fantastic host, living close by nothing was too much for him at all, we couldnt of asked for more.
A bonus for us were Abs dogs, a Boston Terrier and a puppy which as a pair were very entertaining.
Yes the cottage is off the grid but on the other hand Sheffield is only 20 minutes away.
I would go back in a flash and if a lovely relaxing break in fab surroundings are what you need, book it.
We were a family of three adults and three teenagers.
Beautiful property in beautiful place!
We had a great few days staying in Ab's lovely property. Ab was an attentive host, and the location was beautiful, as was the house. We made friends with the resident dogs, who are terrific with my one year old son. Ab also went out of his way to accommodate my son by bringing high chair and travel crib. My one caution would be that I could see the satellite internet being an issue if you needed to do video calls for work during your stay. Overall, highly recommend!
A great stay.
Just what we were looking for the first part of our trip, a quiet place in great scenery. Great host. Will definitely visit again.
So nice to have Richard and his fam!! Wonderful people I would have back any time.
There are hardly words to describe what an amazing stay we had at Ab’s place. The house and the scenery are exquisite, and Ab is such a special host and human. We felt so welcome. Ab made sure we were as comfortable as we could possibly be. He went above and beyond to make out stay pure perfection.
Fabulous renovated barn
A great place for friends and family, owner is very hands-on, helpful and available at all times. I would recommend this property to anyone.
Double wedding anniversary getaway and family get together
One family of 6 plus another couple had a fantastic experience at The Barn. Ab was a great host and we wanted for nothing. BEautiful Bedrooms and mezzanine bedroom are all very comfortable and the bathrooms both had nice eco toiletries. Massive Bath is Devine! You arrive, take stock of facilities, go to the supermarket (admittedly 16 miles away - though Ab says you can do a home delivery there) come back and you never want to leave :) we just managed with under worktop larder fridge, and separate freezer. Loads of socialising space inside and out and the grounds are a treat. Great recommended taxi service to get guests here from Bamford railway station (£20) and to take all 8 of us out for an evening meal (£25 each way for 8 guests to Bamford in minibus). A gorgeous place for family and friends who lived close by to come to see us for afternoon tea and to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and our friends' 29th wedding anniversary! Everyone agreed what an awesome venue it is, and everyone wants to return: no greater statement than that is there really! Ab is sincere in his desire to make your experience as perfect as possible and he asked for any suggestions that may make it better. I think The Barn will maintain high standards as he takes on board any guests' comments. It will will continue to wow and surpass expectations.
We enjoyed the outdoor patio that is new and the men loved the fire pit, and I think if we had stayed longer we would have been experimenting with the pizza oven and used the BBQ.
Be warned: you are nigh on 'off grid' here but for me that was part of its appeal! You have wifi within The Barn, (not outside) and no phone signal at all (bliss :D )
Would I recommend ? absolutely! so long as you were totally happy with off grid and wanted to properly escape. Escaping here from modern life is achievable surrounded by lovely gardens and grounds and walks in a beautiful area.
The Peak District National Park offers breathtaking views and plenty of opportunity for adventure. The Derwent Valley, where our property is situated is one of the most popular parts of the Peak due to its attractive mix of beautiful reservoirs, dams and woodland within the surrounding moorland. For families, walkers and cyclists there are endless trails to explore - all of which you will find in our information pack in the barn. Bikes can be hired at the visitors centre down the road and once you are set, nature is right on your doorstep. Picnics by the water, the nature trail and taking a guided walk to explore the highest points of the Peak District are some of our fondest memories at Beavers Croft. Enjoyable days out to Chatsworth House and Bakewell to sample the bakewell tarts, visiting the farmers markets and a Sunday roast in one of the many local pubs are also firm favourites. For the children, there are plenty of farmyards, adventure parks and wet weather options. In the Summer, the gardens at Beavers Croft have a magical feel and in the Winter, boardgames around the log burner keep you feeling cosy. Once you have made your booking we will send you our information pack and you are welcome to contact us with any queries you have. We do hope you enjoy Beavers Croft as much as we do.
