CHATSWORTH, THE PRETTY MARKET TOWN OF BAKEWELL, THE SPA TOWN OF BUXTON & BEAUTIFUL ELIZABETHAN HADDON HALL ARE ALL ALSO A SHORT DRIVE AWAY. At Ford Old Hall Barn we strive to exceed your expectations, you will receive great hospitality from us, we don't use a manager so we personally make sure the standards are just right for you. We will try to accommodate any special requests you may have. We are on hand if you need us but you can be totally private too if that's your preference. Relax as soon as you walk through the door as your meal with wine will be waiting & the table set so no need to start cooking or looking for somewhere to eat when you arrive, what more could you ask for! There's a breakfast basket prepared with croissants, pain au chocolat, pain au raisin, a home baked loaf, butter, milk, eggs, preserves, coffee, tea, sugar - certainly enough for a short break stay, so if you don't want to, you don't even have to think about shopping for food until you have settled in. You won't need to bring anything with you apart from your luggage (& your own choice of personal toiletries). The barn is fully equipped, a true 'home from home', soft white fluffy towels, white luxurious cotton bedding, hypo allergenic duvets, 'heavenly' mattress toppers for that extra comfy night's sleep & your choice of pillows. Additional large bath towels & white robes are there for you to use with the hot tub or to feel completely relaxed in & around the barn. Dishwasher detergents, soap powder & conditioner plus many kitchen basics are also provided. A basket of logs to start you off to set your cosy atmosphere with the Scandinavian log burner. Explore the beautiful Peak National Park on foot, there are walks right from the door. We have access to 3 excellent, flat, converted railway tracks which are great for either walking or cycling. If you see 10 cars a day in Ford it will be considered 'busy'! You are more likely to encounter the odd tractor or two.More

Our second stay at this fantastic barn. The owners Lynn & Nigel think of everything! A great meal, and a bottle of wine on arrival..and because we were celebrating our 25th, we even had a card and a bottle of fizz! A very generous breakfast...More

A Britannia oven with 6 ring gas hob & double multi function electric oven/2 fridges (for those Christmas & New Year groceries - 1 is never enough!)

Downstairs a utility/boot room on entering with oak units & granite worktops, washer/dryer/freezer/heated towel rail & clothes rack. 2 bedrooms: a super king double which we can convert to a twin with a fully tiled en suite wet room & a twin with a fully tiled en suite bathroom with shower over, both have underfloor heating.

About the neighbourhood
ALTON TOWERS is only 8 miles away, approximately 10 minutes by car, if you are not one for the thrills of the rides, don't worry, it's hidden away. Both LEEK (also known as The Queen of the Moorlands town) & ASHBOURNE are traditional market towns with full amenities. Ashbourne is famous for it's antique shops, gingerbread & the 'infamous' shrovetide football. Leek still has a traditional cattle market & street market, If you are looking for individualism & less 'high street branding' then both Ashbourne & Leek are the towns to visit. A walk through both towns will allow you to step back in time as they are both steeped in history. DOVEDALE & the famous stepping stones is approx 10 minutes by car with historic ILAM on the way, why not stop off at Ilam Hall & enjoy this National Trust pro...
Getting around
Lots of great walking country right from the door! A car is recommended for anything more but you won't need to drive far to explore the beautiful Peak District & everything the stunning Staffordshire Moorlands area has to offer.
