• About 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.

    The perfect place for a family to relax. Alan the owner is a lovely chap. He is happy for you to have the run of his land and spend time with the ponies, cows and chickens. An ideal place for children with beautiful scenery.

    A very well designed barn conversion with beautiful views and plenty of land to stroll around. Chickens running free, horse, pony, Alan and cows all add to relaxed location. The quality of fittings, bedding and kitchen is very high. Spotlessly clean. The hot tub is inspirational providing something very unique and special. Very private outdoor space plus a playroom used some evenings by adults as an escape area from teenagers. Something for all and we felt valued and that if anything was needed it would have been provided. Stayed two weeks and sad to leave, lots to do in the area eg kayak hire, bicycle hire, markets, walks, theme park, Peak District, shopping centre, canal boats, steam railway, falcon art centre, go ape, caves etc etc etc

    Fantastic cottage, beautiful views, owner very helpful. Comfortable beds & cottage well equipped. Close to Dovedales, Alton Towers, Matlock. Be aware the nearest pub (Blacksmiths Arms) does not serve food. Bit of a drive but recommend the Jarvis Arms.

    We had a brilliant time here. Alan was very friendly and approachable. The kids loved all the animals,and the adults enjoyed the hot tub. The only downside was the lack of wifi . We would highly recommend a stay at the Long barn.

    Absolutely incredible place where we had the best weekend! Wonderful host, perfect house for a group and the hot tub was fab. We’ll definitely be back and we’ll bring the children because the games room is a child’s dream. The local pub is worth a visit as is Hetty’s tea room. Can’t wait to stay again!

    Absolutely stunning barn! It was very clean, spacious and Alan was very welcoming and helpful. The rooms were very elegantly decorated and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The location was perfect and the hot tub was very hot and clean. Our stay was absolutely fabulous and everything i had wished for; it was the perfect birthday. Thank you very much. We will definitely be visiting again in the future.

    We had a fabulous time at Long Barn. A very warm welcome from Alan who had trimmed up for us ready for Christmas. Waking up to a dusting of snow was just the cherry on the cake. Very well appointed accommodation and very well equipped, the ONLY thing lacking was a sharp knife, but had we asked I’m sure Alan would have obliged!
