HOLIDAY COTTAGE This section of the building was formerly part of the barn and has been partially converted for use as a holiday let. The layout is conceived to feature 2 bedrooms, shower room and a dining kitchen on the ground floor with a living room and bathroom upstairs. We are informed that the pipework is in-situ for underfloor heating, electrics, plumbing for the bathrooms and kitchen are all in place.

In front of the house there is a pleasant enclosed garden with two lawned areas enclosed by dry stone walls. Beyond the gardens there is a block of grazing land. Total site 3.88 acres.

NOTE Our clients have investigated the possibility of creation of further accommodation within the upper floor of the barn and received positive feedback without actually making a formal application. Consent from the Peak District National Park would be required to do this.
