2-9.10.2021 – Jill, Peter, Val, Chris and Julie. Newcastle Upon Tyne
We’ve had a lovely stay + were lucky with the weather. Our toddler loved the house, garden, stream + lane – ideal for collecting conkers. A good selection of walks locally using public footpaths straight from the house. We walked over the moor to Chatsworth. Lovely fire to come back to in the evening. Very relaxing week + great family time.
18-25.9.2021 – The Forsyth + Forsyth-Barnett Family, West Yorkshire + North London
Thank you so much for such a lovely house and the welcome pack on arrival. Aside from Chatsworth, recommend Hardwick Hall. For a walk the Monsal trail, joined from White lodge and return via Cressbrook Mill, is very beautiful if you start early before the crowds. A wonderful week, with great weather!

We’ve had such a lovely, peaceful and refreshing week here @ West Barn, such a beautiful house – full of lovely, tasteful things and great, well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed walking locally; up in the dark peak, including Mam Tor. Bakewell + Buxton definitely worth a visit. We received a good welcome at St Thomas church, Brampton + the Gulab curry house in Chesterfield. Thank you XX
