The Long Barn
Stunning panoramic views over the Churnet Valley to Alton Towers, 4 miles away, greet visitors to this exceptional detached barn conversion. Boasting a superbly designed interior with smart contemporary furnishings, as well as a lovely garden room with hot tub and walking from the door in local countryside including a nature reserve, it sits peacefully beside the owners’ small working farm at the end of a 200 yard drive from the village. For a fun filled holiday, the location couldn’t be better. The Churnet Valley boasts its own steam railway and there is a wonderful array of attractions within 10 miles including Alton Towers, canal boat trips for a pleasantly tranquil way to explore the landscape, and Trentham Estate, with high wire treetop adventure and unique walk through the Monkey Forest. Waterworld and pottery museums in Hanley, Ashbourne’s famous market and interesting vintage shops, beautiful Dovedale and cycle hire for exploring the Manifold walking and cycling Trail are all only a few miles away whilst Sudbury Hall and Little Moreton Hall (both NT), Chatsworth House, Bakewell and the Heights of Abraham cable cars at Matlock Bath are under an hour’s drive. Pay and play golf is 1 mile. There are three pubs just half a mile away, and restaurants, takeaways and shops in Cheadle, 3 miles.
