    Tissington Ford Barn is an award-winning, beautifully restored and refurbished stone barn, complete with stunning features, including exposed beams, vaulted ceilings, a picnic area located by the stream, and a real log burner. Sleeping up to 12 guests, with an optional hot tub and gazebo add-on, this beautiful cottage is the perfect haven for small celebrations and family/ friend holidays.

    History, style and comfort combine in this delightful barn conversion situated down a pretty country lane amongst beautiful views. Surrounded by green fields, dry stone walls and large open skies, Tissington Ford Barn is a stunning converted traditional stone barn and is the perfect spot to relax with family and friends.

    There is a large outdoor dining area for long, summer evenings, or afternoon barbecues. Visitors will be keen to make the most of the peaceful and attractive countryside and can do so from the immediate land attached to the barn; Tissington Ford Barn’s exclusive picnic area located by the calming stream – perfect for picnics, ball games or paddling in the summer months. Alternatively enjoy the glass rattan furniture for a wonderful outdoor dining experience, and soak into the hot tub to end the evening.

    Cooking will prove a joy in the large, country-style kitchen. Stunning candelabra-style light fittings illuminate the large farmhouse, kitchen table and comfy seating. Guests will love gathering together and enjoying lengthy breakfasts while making plans for the day ahead.

    The living room is a haven of comfort and style. A large wooden beam forms an eye-catching centre piece and exposed brick walls are softened with delightfully luxurious soft furnishings, including thick, floor length curtains and scatter cushions covering the deep, comfortable sofas and armchairs. A wood burner sits set back in a stylish fireplace – perfect for the cooler evenings. Enjoy a nightcap and boardgame by the fire before retiring to one of the luxurious bedrooms.

    The barn can sleep up to 12 visitors in six bedrooms, each with comfy mattresses and beautifully dressed with linens, spare quilts, blankets and an abundance of cushions. A French country style informs the decor, with pretty lamps, thoughtfully-chosen furniture and local art works. Thick carpets and curtains keep rooms warm and dark at night while the windows offer light and lovely views when the morning comes. There are an additional four modern bathrooms and shower rooms.

    Tissington is situated on the edge of the lovely Peak District and there is plenty to enjoy within the local area. Foodies will enjoy meals at The Sycamore Inn, Parwich and The Olde Gate Inne, Brassington – both of which guests can walk to from the cottage. Visitors enjoy gentle strolls around the peaks, whether that’s walking along the Tissington Trail, jumping across the Dovedale stepping stones, or climbing up Thorpe Cloud for great views across the district. Thrill seekers might want to visit Alton Towers, or contact recommended suppliers to organise rock climbing and abseiling in the local area. For those looking to relax, guests can organise private catering, bar services and spa therapists to the cottage!
