Field Barn is a real gem of a cottage - a fantastic find! Created out of a detached mellow stone barn it provides really classy accommodation with its superb lounge, ultra modern kitchen, luxurious bedrooms and 'state of the art' bathrooms. Set on the very edge of Matlock it overlooks the playing fields and backs onto open countryside stretching up to the woods on Matlock Moor.
Matlock is a lovely town nestling in a cauldron of hills with jumbles of cottages cascading down the hillsides and the river Derwent splashing down the valley. Hall Leys Park and the Arc leisure centre are super. Lots of little shops are there to explore as well as the two good supermarkets. 'Peli Deli 'is great for a lunchtime treat. Thailand No1 or Mazzi's Indian are among many good local restaurants. For a special night out try Stone's bistro by the river.
There are also lots of holiday attractions nearby. Matlock Bath with its cable cars and little Switzerland gorge is just down the valley. Peak Rail's trains steam up towards the Peaks. Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are not much further and places like Carsington Water and the National Tramway Museum are in the surrounding hills.
A spacious oak floored lounge, dining and kitchen area with French doors to the patio. The lounge has quality leather sofas, electric coal effect stove, flat screen T.V., DVD, Freeview and WiFi. The dining area has a quality oak table and leather chairs. The kitchen has superb oak topped units, hob, oven, microwave, fridge-freezer and dishwasher. There is an automatic washer in a separate utility area. The pine staircase with tread lights leads to a lovely vaulted double bedroom with king-size bed, flat screen T.V and views across the fields An adjoining 'state of the art' bathroom with bath with waterfall taps, separate shower and W.C. A downstairs twin bedroom with push together twin beds, flat screen TV and superb en-suite shower room with W.C.

"Field Barn is an exceptional property and has obviously been converted to a very high standard. It is very clear that the owners have given this a lot of thought. The barn has a lovely traditional exterior with an up to date interior with some unusual features. We have a cottage holiday at least once per year, and have done so for over 10 years and this property is without doubt one of the nicest we have ever stayed in. Everything shouts quality from the furniture to the cups and saucers etc. The location is perfect, sitting right on the outskirts of Matlock in an elevated position which makes you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, yet there are houses nearby. There is a track next to the cottage which is ideal if you take you dog as we did (she loved it too) We would not hesitate to return, thank you"
