Emily Barn - Carsington, Nr Matlock, Derbyshire, The Peak District, England - Sleeps 16+2

Emily Barn

Emily Barn is a delightful converted stone barn, set in the beautiful Peak District Village of Carsington. Converted from 17th century stone milking barns, Emily Barn provides tastefully furnished, well equipped, character holiday accommodation that is set in a pretty Peak District village location.

The barn ideal for families who want to holiday together, a reunion of friends or for people who want to celebrate a special occasion.

Carsington is an ideal base from which to explore the Peak District and its many places of interest. There are numerous attractions on the doorstep with Carsington Water (a huge reservoir offering great water sports) just a few minutes away. Chatsworth House and Gardens, the market town of Bakewell, Hardwick Hall, Haddon Hall and popular Alton Towers are too within easy reach and just a little further away.

The village location makes the Emily Barn perfect for strolling down the lane to the pub of a lunchtime or evening where you can enjoy good local ale and food. Afterwards, why not stretch your legs and take a short walk to Carsington Water.

Throughout the local area there are numerous fantastic walks with many starting from the front door. For the more energetic guests, enjoy walking or cycling around Carsington Water (eight miles); go horse riding, rock climbing, sailing, kayaking or windsurfing; along with bird watching, fishing and golf for something a little more sedate - a wildlife haven with plenty of things to suit all energy levels.
