The detail

Set on a working farm amidst the spectacular natural scenery of the Peak District, Old Shire Stables Cottage is a barn conversion with award-winning eco-credentials. In the restoration of this beautiful old farm building, natural materials have been used, including timber from the farm itself. Energy comes from a ground source heat pump and solar panels, sheeps’ wool provides insulation and even the paints used are made from natural materials. Troutsdale Farm proves that you don’t have to sacrifice any modern comforts to create luxurious, eco-friendly accommodation.

Old Shire Stables Cottage is set across two floors and the original character of the building is visible in every room. You’ll find exposed brick walls, beautiful wooden beams and natural materials, such as the wood used for the staircase and the stone parquet floor in the entrance hall. There are three bedrooms in total, all relaxing spaces with white walls and soft lighting. If you need a bit of extra sleeping space, there is a sofa bed in the lounge which can sleep another two guests. One of the bedrooms has an ensuite and the others share a family bathroom with another toilet room downstairs.

There is a large kitchen and dining room with beautiful wooden cabinets and surfaces and a double butler sink. Gather everyone around the dining table for delicious family dinners or a hearty cooked breakfast before tackling a long walk in the national park. On sunny days you can always take the cooking outside to the enclosed garden with beautiful views, a barbecue and a picnic table. In the evenings, put your feet up in the lounge in front of a roaring fire while getting stuck into a board game or two.

There’s plenty to do in the local area and many visit the Peak District to take advantage of the wonderful walking opportunities available. There are routes right from your front door that can take you across a diverse range of landscapes, from pretty valleys to rolling hills and woodland. The farm is also close to Tittesworth Reservoir where you can try your hand at a few watersports, including paddleboarding and kayaking. If you fancy a change of pace, there are also several historic houses in the area that are well worth a visit, including the grand Chatsworth House and the medieval Haddon Hall.
