The Barn in Monyash is an absolutely wonderful cottage full of style, character and luxurious furniture and decor. Its spacious lounge, dining room, ultra modern kitchen and bathrooms and four lovely bedrooms makes this a very popular holiday retreat. What tops it all is its picturesque village location surrounded by beautiful Peak District countryside stretching as far as the eye can see!
Sit in the rear garden with your breakfast as Monyash comes awake. Have a wander round the village mere before lunch in the Old Smithy tea rooms. There are lots and lots of attractions to fill every afternoon but get back in time for a meal in the local pub. The Bulls Head on the green does great food and drinks and is one of the friendliest pubs we know.
Bakewell, just a few minutes 'drive away, is surrounded by brilliant holiday attractions. Take the kids to Chatsworth with its fantastic adventure playground. Wander around tranquil Haddon Hall or marvel at the craft skills in Caudwells Mill's craft centre. Peak Rail's steam trains, Parsley Hay's cycle hire, Matlock's cable cars, Crich's tramway museum, Buxton's go-karting, Castleton's caverns and Peveril Castle standing proud on its ramparts are not much further afield.
A superb lounge with glowing coal effect electric stove, luxurious settees, T.V., DVD, Freeview and WiFi. A lovely dining room with pine table and chairs. A classy kitchen with stone flagged floor, quality fitted units, hob, oven, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. A utility room with washer/dryer.
