Description

Cosy and with a real ‘wow’ factor, this charming, semi-detached barn conversion is located in the village of Bonsall and is a delightful and picturesque place for a relaxing getaway or a walking/cycling holiday in and around the Peak District National Park. Bailey’s Barn, dating from the 1700s, is a truly wonderful place to stay. The feel of the barn is welcoming with a collection of original and limited edition art, a cosy wood burner, and very high ceilings revealing the ancient beams supporting the barn roof. With ultra-controllable instant electric heating and well-furnished throughout, it offers an open plan living and kitchen area, and a separate bedroom (choose from super kingsize or twin bed layout) with an en-suite. There is a private off-road parking space, bike storage and courtyard garden with feature lighting and an original ancient cheese press. Bailey’s Barn is set all on one level, with level access and 83cm doorways. The thoughtfully designed stone barn is one of the very few homes in Bonsall which is inside the Peak District National Park as well as Bonsall Conservation Area. Ideal for walkers, couples and dogowners, it is within an easy stroll of fields, footpaths and The Limestone Way. Bailey’s Barn is well set up for walkers, with a useful heated cupboard for drying coats and boots and an outside tap for washing wellies and dogs. The property is most welcoming for dogs, with a special welcome gift and cosy clean bedding available. Set approximately 900 feet above sea level, on top of the highest hill for many miles around, the views are outstanding and the walking and cycling extremely rewarding. There are many trails which start straight from the barn – it is an ideal opportunity to park-up, put the car keys away and just relax! Bonsall is a historic village, within 5 minutes’ drive of Matlock and Matlock Bath, and local to Chatsworth House and many other historic attractions. Based in the Peak District, the barn is a great base from which to explore the beauty and majesty of the region’s peaks, dales and rivers. With its own quirky traditions such as Bonsall Carnival, International Hen Racing Championships, ancient buildings and History Trails, Bonsall is a delightful find with two pubs and a lovely tea room all within half a mile or so. The owners live on-site, and are on hand to help with any queries, give advice about dog walking and any other questions. Shop and pub 500 yards, restaurant 2 miles.

Downriver lies Matlock Bath. This historic village is set in a steep-sided limestone gorge with whitewashed cottages perched along the hill side. Nearer the river a more `touristy' atmosphere prevails with its many attractions from museums and cafes to souvenir shops. On the western side of the gorge is the Heights of Abraham which is popular with visitors due to its superb views and amenities, including restaurant, picnic area and caf�. A cable car can be taken to the top from Matlock Bath railway station.

Between Matlock and Matlock Bath is High Tor, a broad limestone cliff rising some 400 feet above the River Derwent. Around High Tor there is a network of paths suitable for exploring the area and from which to experience the spectacular views. In the grounds below there are refreshment facilities, picnic areas, children's playground, wooded walks and two caverns.

Carsington Water is ahuge draw for outdoor enthusiastswith outdoor activities including walking, cycling, fly fishing, birdwatching, sailing, canoeing, and windsurfing all available. Situated in Asbourne and within easy reach of the Peak Districtit has a sailing club next door to the Visitor Centre and cycle hire. Fly fishing is available from the bank and from boats that can be hired from the Fishing Lodge. There is plentiful car parking and for young children there is a children's playground.

To the south is the market town of Wirksworth, which is one of the oldest towns in the area, with a central marketplace in which markets have been held since the reign of Edward I. Here visitors will find many fine old buildings of great character including a magnificent Jacobean house known as Babington House. The town is now a small bustling and thriving local centre with a selection of shops and pubs.
