stayed last week (15th - 19th september) and found the place nice clean and spacious. the mezzanine bedroom and high ceiling made the place light and airy although the toilet/shower room was a little snug! kitchen well stocked and big enough for two people to move around.the sitting room / dining area was spacious and had eclectic touches which added a homely feel. was actually nice not to have phone reception - let us unwind completely! a little hard to find as post code on sat nav takes you about a mile away but instructions from owner spot on. good centre to explore from, all in all a pleasant stay
Arrived by car & didn’t use all week. Ideal comfy & relaxing base for walking the local area. Biggindale a favourite. Dovedale a bit busy. Bathroom compact & off the kitchen.
Recommend trying the buses – especially the bus to Buxton. The journey & views absolutely superb. Took bus to Bakewell (only one a fortnight – on a Monday for market day). Strangely the bus didn’t pick up at the bustop as one might expect but round the corner by the church. Asked for directions in the tourist office in Bakewell & was gruffly told “there” as the lady pointed at the map. Taciturn or just plain unfriendly & rude? Blimey, Bakewell Tourist Office not promoting the area very well. Still it is worth a visit just to make puerile jests about tarts.
The Waterloo Inn is the local pub that served decent unfussy pub grub with good sized portions. Loved the sausage & mash.
If you like rambling this is the cottage for you. We enjoyed our stay!

Just back this past weekend staying at Ramblers Barn. Had exactly what me & my girlfriend wanted along with amazingly good weather! Well equipped kitchen & very comfy bed made for a lovely short break. Pubs in Biggin & Harlington serve good food along with good walks nearby. Just follow the instructions on here to find it & not the postcode on a sat nav!
Stayed here early March for two nights with my boyfriend as we both wanted to get away for peace and quiet after a busy few months. Arrived to a lovely welcome basket from the owners, the barn was inviting and comfortable. Has everything in it you could possibly want for a short break! The weather wasn't great so we couldn't go walking however we walked the short distance to the pub and visited local villages with the car. Our evenings were spent playing Scrabble in the gorgeous downstairs living area! Thank you again for a wonderful stay!
Fantastic, peaceful location - there are beautiful walks from the barn in every direction. The barn itself is very comfortable and we would certainly return for another stay. Thank you!
