The approach – to the barn is via an unmade but easily driveable 1/4 mile long private lane from the moor road (Loads Road). Cross a small stone bridge over the stream, go left past a neighbouring property and through gates into a gravel yard with parking and turning for at least 5 cars. The yard has a selection of old stone troughs and a stone bench for the late afternoon sun.

At the rear – of the property is a large garden of approx 1/2 acre, with a level area and a steep slope. From the top of the garden you can see the crooked spire of Chesterfield church. There is a large rockery with loose stone.
From the barn you can walk several public footpaths – see the Out & About – Walking page. These are well sign-posted by the local societies and easy to follow. You can make various looping routes over the local hills. It is also possible to walk over the moor-top to Chatsworth if you wish, but do check the weather forecast as the moor can be bleak.
Entrance to the barn is normally via the panelled door at the centre. To the left of the door, you will find the key-safe.
