  The Detail...

High Ridge Barn is a gorgeous 17th Century building constructed using local pink stone and surrounded by the fields and woodland of the Peak District. This peaceful location, without another human in sight, is perfect for family or group trips getting away from it all. The recently renovated barn enjoys stunning views across the Swythamley Valley and sleeps up to eight in four double bedrooms. After a day hiking or cycling through the surrounding countryside, recover in the wood-fired sauna and relax in front of the Scandi log-burner in the living room.

The Scandi-inspired interior is spacious and welcoming with the white walls contrasting beautifully with the barns exposed wooden beams. Youll find the kitchen and dining area in the double-height main barn which is nicely well equipped, youll even find an oyster shucker. This space opens out onto the cosy living area where two luxurious velvet sofas are gathered around a log burning stove. This really is the perfect spot to curl up with a book in the evening or enjoy a movie night in.

The four double bedrooms are equipped with the highest quality bedding, feather and goose down pillows and duvets and medium-firm pocket sprung mattresses to sink into after a busy day exploring. Two of the rooms have super-king sized beds which can be split into two large singles depending on your preference. There is an ensuite room with a king-sized bed and the last bedroom features another king-sized bed with the option of adding a cot with mattress and bedding.

There are three luxurious bathrooms, so therell be no waiting around for a hot, steamy shower after a long day in the Peaks. The family bathroom features a beautiful free-standing bathtub and a separate shower area. Theres also a shower room with Bluetooth speakers and the ensuite bathroom. After your shower, a fluffy bathrobe and slippers will be waiting for you.

High Ridge Barn has half an acre of private garden for guests to enjoy which is dog-secured. Theres a BBQ, secure storage for any bikes, a wood-fired sauna and even a dog grooming cabin so you dont have to worry about any muddy paws in the house after walks.

There are plenty of walks that you can do right from the front door. For some stunning views from High Ridge itself, try The Roaches walk and see if you can spot the Barn from the top. Dane Valley Way is a beautiful river-side walk and you can even take a dip in Panniers Pool if youre feeling brave. There are also lots of cycling routes around both on and off-road. Hire a bike from one of the local bike shops or bring your own and take advantage of the storage and washing facilities at the barn. For something a little different, try Go Ape or visit the Churnet Valley Railway and have a go at driving a train.
