Bentley’s Barn is a great example of an idyllically placed barn conversion situated on the edge of the small village of Press, near Ashover, and only 6 miles from the popular tourist town of Matlock. Beautifully placed in the village, this detached single-storey barn has been meticulously renovated to a beautiful standard throughout, and even has its own hot tub. The property exudes quality with a thoughtfully designed open plan living space, a fabulous kitchen area boasting granite worktops, two ovens, a steam oven and built-in coffee machine. The living area is comfortable and spacious with wood grain flooring, leather sofas and tasteful furnishings. Both bedrooms offer contemporary en-suite bathrooms one with a bath, and the other with a large walk-in shower; dressing gowns are also provided. With ample off road parking and a field with views over the countryside for outdoor games, as well as a private decked terrace with your very own hot tub, this property provides excellent accommodation with all the contemporary comforts you could wish for.
Close by, in Ashover, there are local inns and village shops, whilst golfers can enjoy a round on the 9-hole course in nearby Stonedge, or on the Matlock golf courses. Ashover is one of the country’s largest parishes and has an extensive footpath network, with all routes coming back to the village. The surrounding area is wonderful for walking and cycling, or touring the pretty market towns and popular tourist attractions.
