The detail

Perfect for the eco-conscious holiday-maker, The Old Cartshed is a beautifully restored barn on a working farm in the Peak District. The building is full of character as the restoration focussed on retaining the barn’s original features while installing all the eco-friendly modern comforts you could wish for. Underfloor heating is powered by the geothermal ground source heat pump and water is heated using solar power. The farm has provided natural materials such as timber, there’s a rainwater harvesting system for grey water and the insulation is sheep’s wool.

The environmentally friendly ethos behind this conversion has no doubt been inspired by the spectacular landscape surrounding the barn. Head up the tree-lined driveway towards the barn which is set within farmland that stretches out to the rolling countryside beyond. The barn itself, retaining the feel of a farm building, fits in perfectly with these natural surroundings. Step inside and you’ll find that this theme continues in the interior design with wooden beams and stone walls being left exposed and beautiful stone floors underfoot.

The living spaces have a cosy feel with comfy sofas gathered around a wood burner and deep red colours being used on the walls and in the furnishings to complement the exposed brickwork. The kitchen has beautiful wooden surfaces, cupboards and an island which means there’s space for everyone to get stuck in and help with preparing dinner.

The bedrooms are cosy spaces with three of the four featuring the sloping wooden beams and ceilings of the barn. There’s a family bedroom with a double bed and adult sized bunk beds as well as two twin rooms and a double. There are two ensuite bathrooms and two further bathrooms meaning there will be no arguments about who gets the first shower after a long walk in the national park.

The barn is ideally located for those looking to get out and explore a bit of the countryside. You can stride out right from your front door and explore some of the many walking trails or hop on your bike and head for one of the cycle routes. There are plenty of historic houses in the local area to discover, including the famous Chatsworth House and the striking black and white Tudor Gawsworth Hall. The farm is also located close to Tittesworth Reservoir where you can have a go at a range of watersports.
