“Excellent Get-away!”
Reviewed 7 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Group of young guys stayed here for a long weekend. We absolutely loved it. Lovely to get-away from the city. Largely it's about making your own fun but asides from that the lovely walks, pubs and shops in Bakewell were great. The hot-tub was easily the best part of the holiday (make sure it's at 40 degrees before you get in, it's completely worth the wait [although that's not to say that 35 isn't completely sufficient]). The renters were lovely and in phone contact at all times. Do consider staying here! Lovely beds, towels and general facilities. Brilliant.

“60th Birthday, perfect for family gathering”
Reviewed 21 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

A well equipped cottage with luxurious towels and bedding. There is plenty of room for everyone to relax in the lounge. Outside there is the hot tub which is fabulous! The surrounding area is amazing with stunning views. A pub within 100 yards too, serving real ale and good food. The only reason for not giving 5 stars is that we were not welcomed by the manager and had a few teething problems. We contacted the owner direct who sorted things for us and ensured our stay was comfortable. We had an excellent family gathering at the weekend and a relaxing time for the rest of our stay.

“Perfect quiet beautiful location”
Reviewed 6 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Well first of all if you are booking or have booked to go to this barn please do not go on the motorway you will be missing a treat, we went the scenic way and the views are amazing!!
The barn is very easy to find upon arrivel the door was open this the keys in the door (tells you something about the area), the barn is a great size there was 6 adults and one child in out party and there was plenty of room for us all.
The kitchen has everything you require. We took our own dishwasher tablets and cloths washing stuff. But all the pots pans plates ect is provided. Even a freshly baked cake :). There is a washing machine but no rumble dryer, a fridge and separate freezer and a downstairs toilet.
The living/dining room was great dining table an the most comfortable couches iv sat in with a nice big tv. All the windows and doors so you can walk out of them into the front garden where there is a big table and chairs.

Upstairs was just as big we has the en suite room, with a big 4 poster bed, bed was very comfy however the duvet was a little thick for the time of year there is a further 2 bedrooms one with two singles beds and another 4 poster all very comfy. There is also another bathroom with bath/shower and great towels provided.
To the rear is the all important hot tub!! Many hours were enjoyed out there just relaxing what more could one want??
One of the party left some belongings in a draw and when they phoned the owner he offered to post them back why hour taking payment (which we thought was really nice).

Around and about.
the barn is about a 5 minute drive from the beautiful town of bakewell (Monday is market day). We also visited Matlock and went in the heights of Abraham which is a must and again such a beautiful place.

So all in all we had a great time and will defiantly be returning.

Hi,
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Dutch Barn.We work hard to try to maintain high standards and customer feedback is very important to us.

We are sorry you found the Hot Tub lid so heavy - we believe it is heavy due to it taking on water and following your comments we have ordered a new lid.
We already have parasols and are expecting the all important weighted bases to be delivered this week.We just hope the sunshine will arrive with them!
We have previously relied on our Manager to give out information during the meet and greet, but appreciate that our guests may like some written information aswell.Following your comments we are therefore currently putting together a welcome folder to include useful telephone numbers/ appliance instructions so if you decide to stay at Dutch Barn again all will be in place.

We hope to beable to welcome you back to Dutch Barn in the future and hope that you will recommend it to your friends.
Many thanks for your comments.
Best regards Gill and Jonathan
