One of just six farmhouses in the rural parish of Gratton, Dale End House is found on a quiet lane between Elton and Youlgreave. It enjoys unspoilt countryside, popular with walkers and mountain bikers alike yet is only six miles from Bakewell and Matlock. We discovered Dale End House whilst mountain biking through Gratton Dale and instantly fell in love with it. Surrounded by breath-taking views, and abundant wildlife - Gratton is one of Derbyshire’s best-kept secrets.
“We spent a long weekend at The Lodge with our 5 month old daughter and dog. The bed was comfortable, the shower was glorious, and we loved waking up to all the chickens, ducks, peacocks and pigs every morning. The hosts left a range of guides for walking inspiration, and we enjoyed all of the ones we attempted. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet the hosts, but couldn't recommend this place enough for getting away from it all. Thanks for a lovely stay”

Douglas’s Barn is the weirdest shaped Five Star romantic holiday cottages for two, tucked between Tom’s Barn and Orchard Farm house in Parwich, in the Peak District, Derbyshire You’ll probably love the amusing contrast of the contemporary interior and the top of the range equipment set within these funny shapes. The property is a bit of luxury having been awarded 5 star gold rating by Visit England.
“Angela is a wonderful host, very welcoming and has put lots of personal touches into the barns. The lemon drizzle cake on arrival was beautiful! There was also a fabulous bunch of roses and everything you could possibly need in the barn. The place itself was wonderfully clean and had lovely furnishings. It felt very homely during our stay. We went on a wonderful walk from the hosts recommendations in their folder. All in all a lovely break with lots of laughter and memories! Can’t wait to return!”
