Description

Surrounded by spectacular countryside and panoramic views in all directions, The Barn at Grislow Field can be found in an unrivalled location bordering the villages of Curbar and Baslow, within the heart of The Peak District National Park. Adjacent to a former farmhouse and close to the owner’s stables on a working farm, the property enjoys a rural outlook and is secluded yet centrally located for everything the Peak District has to offer.

For outdoor enthusiasts, walks can be taken direct from the door, with a network of footpaths crossing the owner’s land, or for those wanting a peaceful break you can cosy up in front of the wood burning stove, taking in the remarkable scenery through the French windows.

Curbar is a popular and sought after village with a collection of sunken Peak District millstones in the centre, and has a pub, café and art gallery making it a wonderful base for walks, climbing and mountain biking. Baslow and its triple-arched river bridge is a large village, offering a range of village amenities including a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, even a Michelin star one too!

Nearby is historic Chatsworth House, with its opulent interiors and extensive gardens and parkland. The popular market town of Bakewell can be reached in just 10 minutes, and the towns of Matlock and Buxton are around half an hour away. The pretty Hope Valley villages and their range of attractions such as Hathersage, 10 minutes, with its open air swimming pool and the ever popular honeypot villages of Castleton and Edale, home to the start of the Pennine Way are all easily accessible. Sheffield and Chesterfield can both be reached in around half an hour and the UK’s premier theme park, Alton Towers, is around an hour away.

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.
