Organise your next friends and family reunion at Courtyard Barn in the medieval village of Tideswell. It's in the heart of the Derbyshire Peak District National Park, with spectacular limestone gorges and riverside rambles straight from the door - no need to use the car. An unusual feature of the house is that you first enter through a door in the roof - though this is at ground level! The house is built into a hillside, with one entrance at the top and the other at the bottom! This interesting architecture makes Courtyard Barn a unique topsy turvey residence packed full of character!

This big barn conversion offers 5 double bedrooms (2 en-suite), family bathroom plus a large vaulted living/dining room. It is big enough for 14 people to eat together comfortably around the same table, then relax in the lounge area in front of the very efficient logburner (Clearview 650 model). There is underfloor heating throughout, maintained by a gas boiler.

Turn round and look in the other direction and you gaze over open countryside and sheep. We have some of the largest private open spaces in the village (some other big properties have little or no outside space - check before you book!)  And what better place to end the day than in the Horse & Jockey, a real ale pub literally across the road. (Pre-order the day before and they will provide a full English Breakfast for your group). See photo below.

Hi Kirsty. Fabulous weekend.  Loved The Barn. We all had a wonderful time. Facilities were great. Stairs a challenge for our older family … but we all coped and wanted to say Thank You.

Thank you once again for the use of Courtyard Barn. We all found the house inviting and very homely. I will certainly be in touch in the near future about another potential booking. If there is anywhere you would like us to review the property on, please let me know and I will gladly do so.

Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to rent your beautiful house. We all really enjoyed the stay and commented how amazing it was. We hope everything was to your satisfaction after leaving. We are all looking at doing the same next year.

Hi Kirsty & Marcus. I just wanted to say thanks for a great weekend in Tideswell. I even managed to knock together an industrial quantity of Thai curry for everyone using the mega pans in the kitchen.
