The Dutch Barn is an impressive luxury barn conversion which lies in the peaceful village of Over Haddon on the edge of Lathkill Dale, one of England's most beautiful valleys and a national nature reserve. The Dutch Barn has been newly renovated , is beautifully furnished to a high standard and is kept spotlessly clean. With enclosed front garden and private rear decked area with Hot Tub, the Dutch Barn is perfect holiday or honeymoon destination or a place to celebrate a special occasion.
Over Haddon, is situated just over 2 miles south-west of Bakewell .The name Haddon means Heath Hill, the Over relating to being above Nether Haddon (Haddon Hall). It is probably one of Derbyshire's prettiest villages, with an assortment of houses and cottages mainly built of limestone, typical of the White Peak. It's an ideal location for a holiday, just 2 miles from the bustling market town of Bakewell and a short drive to the world famous stately home of Chatsworth and the regal spa town of Buxton. Within 200 yards of The Dutch Barn is the Lathkil Hotel with the most spectacular and panoramic views of any pub in the Peak District and serving excellent food.
The village has an idyllic setting, nestling on a ridge high above Lathkill Dale which stretches like a deep dark chasm toward Monyash in the west whilst opening out into a lush green dale with a succession of weirs as the river flows downstream towards Alport

"Stunning location, modern well kept property”
We stayed at the Dutch Barn for one week - 4 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs. We found the property to be exceptionally clean with modern furnishings and lovely touches such as candles, high quality linen and canvases of the area.
"Brilliant weekend, lovely accommodation"
We have just had a brilliant weekend in this lovely accommodation. We have been to the Dutch Barn many times and it never fails to come up to a very high standard. We had great weather and spent much of our time in the hot tub and garden. Lots of great pubs nearby. Marie, the manageress, is always on hand for any small problems, and always a prompt reply from the owners when booking. We will definitely be staying again, and can't wait!
