Just got home from the cruck barn . What a great place , everything you need and more , position is fantastic views have to be seen to be believed . Scones and jam waiting with a bottle of fizz, please don't stop all the nice touches Mary as it is really appreciated. Very close to everything in the peak district , walked to local pub about a mile and had very nice meal. Cruck barn is definitely on our list for a return visit ,
Thank you Mary and Ron for sharing your property with us, other than saying hello and goodbye felt like the place was ours, leo enjoyed it as well secure garden for him to have a walk round .
Forgot to say breakfast on the balcony lovely.
Kevin

We've been letting holiday homes for a little while now as we find it the easiest way to control our 18 month boy away from home. Holiday homes can be a bit hit and miss and we've had our fair share of misses, however I am pleased to report that this one is a beauty. The location is stunning, the rooms are good sized and all the furnishings/equipment are at a high standard and many items are new from what we can tell. The bed is large and very comfortable, the bedroom itself has a balcony with stunning views and the let comes with a garden with swings/slide which would be lovely for children in the summer! Mary and Ray (Owners) are very welcoming and instantly put us at ease. Mary even left us some home made scones jam and cream; nice touch and tasted great! To Mary & Ray as we didn't see them before we left - thanks for a great stay hope to come again :-)

“Wedding anniversary”
Reviewed 4 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Just got back from the Cruck barn we had a wonderful two night break to celebrate our first wedding.
Mary and Ray are such a nice down to earth couple at hand if you may need anything a nice bottle of bubbles and Christmas cake awaiting us.
The barn has everything you may need for a few days or a week break.
The pictures don't do the barn justice the up stairs is warm cosy wonderful bed top quality bedding, large shower well equipped seating area books games magazines TV DVD player but why you want to watch TV with the great views from this room we would have liked a bath in the bathroom but the shower is adequate love the rocking arm chair.
The kitchen/ dining is well equipment all you can ever ask for nice log burner with a basket of log for our use we cooked two meals and breakfast and found every thing we needed and more and very clean to.
We took our dog who loved the log burner don't think he moved once it was lit.
Great walking in the area easy and hard walking Matlock is well worth a visit.
All in all we would love to go back in the summer we had a very satisfactory stay, and it's not that far from where my wife and I live why travel all the way to the lakes district when the Peak District is just as nice and closer.
Thanks once again Mary and Ray you made it memorable stay for us.
