We rented Fenns Barn for the weekend to celebrate a 60th and 30th birthday with family. The property was clean and very well equipped. It was warm, cosy and comfortable and we had everything we needed. Michelle was very helpful, giving us tips on where to walk nearby. The location is stunning.

Great place to stay if you want to explore the Peak District. Would love to go back in the spring or summer.
