Lovely place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for letting my little dog Jack stay at The Haybarn which is near to the town of New Mills (10 minute to walk into town) which has shops, pubs and places to eat . Great views from the property and beside the canal with good walks (despite the bad weather). Accommodation is well kept, clean and has everything you need for your stay. The owners introduced themselves and were available for any concerns (we did not need anything). I would definitely return and recommend this property to my friends and family. I thought the price was really reasonable.

Perfect cottage getaway

  • 5 of 5

Cute little cottage located on a quiet marina. The cottage is a converted haybarn with an open plan living area complete with cosy open fire. The bedroom is situated on a mezzanine floor above the living area. Everything needed was provided and Pete and Heather were fantastic hosts. The cottage is close to a towpath which is great place to spend the day walking or cycling. A short drive away is the Monsal Trail and the town of Bakewell should you wish to venture further a field. In conclusion, we had a fantastic break and wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend to others.

The Haybarn is a perfect place to relax and unwind

  • 5 of 5

A friendly welcome from our hosts Peter and Heather and lots of useful advice. Closeby is a canal with beautiful barges and wonderful views for miles. The accommodation was clean and warm with a lovely log fire. Our dogs were also made welcome and there is a dedicated area for their toileting. Many local shops and supermarkets and many gastro pubs a short drive away. Highly recommended.

Hidden away gem

  • 5 of 5

Very hospitable hosts made us feel very welcome and personal touches too, on hand to help out. Cosy, compact but very clean contemporary and warm right on the canal edge. Would highly recommend if needing a place to stay on the edge of the Peak District. Plenty of choices of eateries and places to visit on the doorstep.

The accommodation is very good and we were made very welcome, we loved the log burner [so did the dogs]. A great place for lots of walks without having to use the car and handy for the Peak District,
