What you may like/ what you may not like about Gooseberry Barn:

Some of what you may like:
The standard of accommodation: Our accommodation aims to please with lovely lounge with log burner and picture window, both bedrooms with en suite facilities including  bath with shower in one bathroom and walk-in shower in the other. The floors are tiled (so nice and clean) with occasional rugs and of course under-floor heating throughout .  The double aspect dining kitchen is very well fitted, with electric hob/oven, washer, dishwasher, microwave, fridge and freezer.

TVs and WiFi: 
The barn has a TV in the lounge and both bedrooms. There is WiFi throughout (not shared with anyone else).

Private Parking:
There is ample parking for at least two vehicles and your entrance has electrically controlled gate access.

Walks from your doorstep / enjoying the wildlife:
There are lovely walks from your doorstep and you are able to enjoy walking in the owners 30+ acres with the potential for viewing of all manner of wildlife including badgers, foxes, pheasants and owls.

Your own courtyard and separate seating/viewing area:
The Barn has its own courtyard which gets the sun (when around) for most of the day. Additionally, there is a separate seating area if you want to view the surrounding countryside.

The location:
Gooseberry Barn is ideally placed to visit all that the Peak District and Derbyshire has to offer. It is only 4 miles to Chatsworth and from there a short distance to either Bakewell or Matlock. The pretty villages of Baslow, Hathersage, Castleton and Eyam, to name but a few, are all within very easy commuting (no more than 1/2 hr to any of them) as is the market town of Chesterfield and the vibrant city of Sheffield (or even the fantastic shopping at Meadowhall).

There are numerous excellent eating establishments within easy commuting of the barn, with the nearest pub serving food being circa 500 metres away.

Read our 'Guest Comments' to see what they loved about Gooseberry Barn. We have many guests who come back time and time again because they love the Barn, its location and what it has to offer in terms of the holiday experience. 

What you may not like about Gooseberry Barn:

Pets/Smoking: Really sorry, but our cottage is strictly for non smokers and we do not take pets. (In fact, it is worth mentioning that whilst we love children, we do not welcome unruly, 'wrecker' children either!)

Most of the houses of Holmesfield are situated on the B6054 which is one of the country roads out into Derbyshire (restricted road so lorries not allowed) and the barn is no different. The road is the other side of the stone wall to the courtyard, screened by the stone wall and huge conifers. It can get busy, particularly at weekends as traffic goes out into Derbyshire. It is also quite a 'horsey' area, so you will see quite a few horse riders using the road.

Other than that we struggle to see anything that you may not like and indeed very, very rarely have we received any negative comment in the years we have been renting Gooseberry Barn. Indeed, what we generally receive is great feedback - evidenced by the number of people who rebook (and often as they leave!)
