About Croft House Barn

Croft House Barn is a Peak District holiday cottage for families and friends. While big enough to sleep six people in three bedrooms, it's not too large that couples won't also feel right at home as soon as they open the front door. It's easy to see why guests return time and again for the comfortable self-catering property, loving the spectacular views and quiet village location in Waterfall, a short walk from the Red Lion Inn and convenient for some of the region's most famous beauty spots and attractions.

Waterfall is a pretty village in the southwest of the national park. Being very central in the country, the cottage has easy access from the motorway systems and the M1 or M6 can be reached in under one hour. Once you're here, you have a huge choice of things to see and do. Treat your kids (or your inner one) to a day at Alton Towers, where the thrill of the rollercoasters is only 20 minutes from your rural front door. No visit to the Peak District is complete without seeing the magnificence of Chatsworth House, where the extensive grounds, world-class collections of art and furniture, farm and playground offer a full day of fun for the whole family. Browse the boutiques and admire the elegant architecture of Buxton, visit the busy Monday market in Bakewell, or take a seat in a tearoom in Matlock or one of the many other picturesque towns and villages.

Active people and lovers of the great outdoors will be in their element on holiday in the Peak District National Park. The cottage is five minutes from the start of the scenic Manifold Trail with its access to Thor’s Cave and just 20 mins from the Monsal and Tissington, while the Combe Valley RSPB Nature Reserve is even closer. Play golf, or go fishing or boating at Rudyard Lake, Carsington or Tittesworth. The Derwent Valley World Heritage mill sites are perfect for a relaxed walk and lunch. At the same time, Ilam, Dovedale and the Roaches offer incredible views accessible on foot, mountain bike, or horseback.

Guests who have stayed at Croft House Barn love the beauty of its rural location combined with the high standard of accommodation and convenience of places to eat, drink and shop. It's so easy to relax in its welcoming atmosphere knowing that you have spectacular walks and fantastic attractions nearby.

Location (The Peak District)

Accommodation Comprises:

Croft House Barn is a lovingly renovated cottage in a quiet location with a private garden. Accommodation is over two storeys, with the kitchen on a mezzanine level.


  • Whatever your day looks like, you'll love returning to the warmth and comfort of the sitting room. Settle back on the sofa with the Smart TV on, or grab something to read from the well-stocked bookcase. There are homely touches everywhere, from cushions and throws to the gas-fired woodburner.
  • Gaze upon the flower borders as you dine, seated at the solid timber table. The antique dresser is a contrast to the modern-Shaker kitchen, a few steps up from the dining room with efficient appliances, ample plates, glasses and cutlery, and a thoughtful welcome pack of farm-fresh goodies.
  • A separate small utility area houses the oil-fired boiler, washing machine and dryer.
  • The downstairs bedroom is suitable for children, friends or couples with a super-king (6 ft-wide) bed, which can be made up as twin beds if need be and has an en-suite shower-room with wash basin and WC.


  • Original beams and a romantic king-size bed are a feature in one of the two upstairs bedrooms. All beds have quality bed linen, and bath towels are provided. The ensuite has a shower over the bath, WC and a handbasin.
  • A third bedroom has two single beds and an ensuite shower room.

Outside: The owners, who live in the adjacent former farmhouse, have created a garden oasis with a barbecue area and seating at the rear, and a sun terrace with seating at the front. There is also off-street parking for four cars.

Additional Information: WiFi, bed linen, bath towels and utilities are included when you book Croft House Barn. It's family-friendly but not suitable for pets. Smoking is not permitted indoors.
