A charming barn conversion surrounded by 40 acres of meadow in the beautiful Manifold Valley in the Peak District.
The barn lies in an idyllic, tranquil, rural location in the grounds of a grade II listed farmhouse. The fields border the River Manifold and there are lovely views over rolling farmland to the Staffordshire moorlands in the distance. In the next valley the glittering River Dove marks the boundary between Derbyshire and Staffordshire as it weaves its way down to Dovedale.
There are many fine walks right from the doorstep and several footpaths cross the grounds. The picturesque village of Longnor is a pleasant 15 minute walk by the river. It has a delightful cobbled market place, shop, post office, 2 pubs and a craft centre with café.
