The Old barn B & B

    Set in the heart of the Peak District in the beautiful, quiet hamlet of King Sterndale , our converted 19th century  barn offers a perfect place to stay to discover both the Dark and White peak.

    Built in around 1890 the barn was converted into a dwelling 25yrs ago and has been completely re vamped in the past 5 yrs.  We offer a warm welcome, hearty home cooked breakfast with homemade elements,(sausages and preserves)  with the other elements locally sourced including freshly ground coffee which is roasted in Buxton..  We are able, with a little notice, to provide packed lunches should you require them for your days out.  As well as a drying room for wet gear there is dry secure storage for cycles and climbing/walking gear and equipment.

    The Old Barn has two en suite bedrooms both doubles with one of them having the capacity for an extra single bed and a cot should you wish to come as a family.  The rooms have flat screen TVs, radio alarms, tea and coffee making facilities and hairdryers.  There is also free wi fi and, for reference, we have guides to the local area and events nearby.

    Room 1 £80 per room per night

    £10.00 extra if the room is to be used as family room.  This includes the single bed and breakfast provision for up to 2 children

    Room 2 £70 per room per night

    A perfect starting point for your Peakland adventure, we are very close to the Monsal and Tissington trials, perfect for cycling, walking and (for the energetic)  running. There are numerous gentle walks straight from the door and for seasoned walkers, the more challenging hikes of Kinder Scout and Bleaklow are not too far away.  Within easy reach are the world renowned gritstone climbing edges of the Eastern and Western Peak.

    For those who prefer slightly less energetic activities, we are close to Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, and the National Trust properties of Lyme Park and Longshaw Estate.

    Of course right on the doorstep is beautiful Buxton, home of the famous Opera House and wonderful Pavilion Gardens with its stunning park and restaurant (which is child friendly).  There are lots of places to eat and drink in the town and several Pubs just out of town serving very good food. High Peak Bookstore and Café (the biggest bargain bookstore in the country) is less than 3 miles away.

    The Market towns of Bakewell, Leek and Macclesfield are within easy reach for shopping and the Peak Outlet Village is about 25minutes away by car.

    King Sterndale is 1.5 miles off the A515 Ashbourne – Buxton road, along a single track road.  The road comes into the village but goes no further, there is no through traffic which makes the hamlet and its lovely surrounding area a calm and tranquil place to stay.The old Barn is the last property in the hamlet, set at right angles to the road.

     Lynn and Pete would be very happy to welcome you to the Old Barn and do everything possible to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as they can.

    We are in the process of having a website built , in the meantime please call , text or email us
