In what can only be described as a true rural location, Blackclough Barn dates back over 100 years and offers magnificent panoramic views over the Peak District, Derbyshire, Cheshire and Staffordshire countryside. Beautifully furnished to a good standard throughout, Blackclough Barn is linked internally by a large shared boot room to Blackclough Farmhouse, making them perfect for one large group or two completely independent families. Blackclough Barn benefits from a superb wood burner, making it warm, comfortable and full of rustic character with a galleried landing.
Located in a Site of Special Scientific Interest which legally protects the surrounding wildlife and geology, and with only the sounds of the flowing river and sheep as neighbours, the location is remote and just perfect for relaxing and re-energising. Ample outdoor pursuits are available locally including walking, mountain biking and climbing. Although remote, England’s highest village, Flash, complete with local shop/café and local pub serving traditional food is just 1½ miles away. The spa town of Buxton is just 5½ miles providing ample amenities and tourist attractions, and a number of other Peak District towns and villages are within easy reach, including Bakewell, (home to the magnificent Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall), Hartington and Tideswell, which can all be reached in around ½ an hour. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
Blackclough Barn can be booked together with Blackclough Farmhouse (UK4067) to accommodate up to 12 guests.

About the local area

The River Wye follows the Wye Valley, rising above Buxton flowing eastward through Bakewell before finally joining the Derwent at Rowsley. This is perhaps Derbyshire's prettiest rivers with its limestone uplands and superb dales.

At Monsal Dale the valley widens, the steep sided Monsal Head provides spectacular views over the valley before the river reaches Ashford-in-the-Water, passing beneath what was a medieval packhorse bridge and then again at Bakewell where there is a 13th century bridge with five gothic arches before reaching Haddon Hall.

The old market town of Buxton nestles in the Derbyshire hills and at a height of 1,000 feet above sea level it is one of England's highest towns. Its fame as a health spa dates back to Roman times.

Bakewell has an equally ancient past being mentioned in the Doomsday Book and probably also occupied by the Romans. This beautiful, small market town is situated on the River Wye and has many pleasant walks from the bridge to the town centre where there are many shops, pubs and restaurants and one of the oldest markets in the area, dating back to 1300. The renowned Bakewell Show takes place on the first Wednesday and Thursday of August, attracting both the farming community and visitors from all over the region and beyond.

Apart from the many charming Peak District villages that can be found throughout the Wye Valley other nearby places of interest includes Chatsworth House, home of the Dukes of Devonshire and the grandest stately house in the region and Haddon Hall, a medieval manor house and home to the Dukes of Rutland situated on the River Wye.
