This quaint property, situated just 3 miles from the market town of Matlock, is perfect for a romantic getaway for two – not forgetting the four-pawed pal in your life, of course! Sleeping you both in a peaceful yet quirky double bedroom and with space for the pup to snooze, it won’t be long before you’re feeling relaxed and ready to go out and explore the beautiful Peak District. Take a leisurely riverside ramble starting from a pub in Calver (13.5 miles) and cross the bridge into Froggatt (15 miles).

This barn conversion, that has an outside elevated seating area for beautiful countryside views, is bright and airy with an open-plan style. The kitchen area has everything you need to cook up a storm for your beau, while the comfy sofa in the lounge beckons you to sink back in front of the TV after a long day, the pup by your feet. Up the winding stairs, a tranquil bedroom awaits you; sleep soundly among calming neutral decor and wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day – just watch your head on the low ceiling! Enjoy al fresco meals on the patio, enjoying the serenity of the countryside around you.

Go back in time with the Crich Tramway Village (5 miles) and take a ride on a tram with your hound, taking advantage of the picnic areas along the way. If you prefer to enjoy the scenery up high, visit the Heights of Abraham (5 miles) and travel by cable car over the Derwent Valley. There’s even a special ‘Waggy Tails Way’ walk for you all to enjoy. There are plenty of historic towns and villages to discover, including Bakewell (11.5 miles) and Matlock Bath (5 miles).

We had a wonderful stay at Blakelow Barn and found the property to be well equipped and very clean. This was our first trip away as a new family with our 5-month-old and 2 dogs. The Barn was perfect with lots of space for the dogs in the rustic garden and also lots of room in the open plan kitchen/living area. Perfectly located off the beaten trackRead more so nice and quiet, but only a 10minute drive from Matlock and a supermarket if needed. A wonderful little property and excellent location. Hide

What a wonderful stay we had at Blakelow Barn over New Year. Booked to be in the middle of nowhere to get away from fireworks and got exactly that. The Dogs loved the private wood and had a great time. Found some nice local walks and not too far from Matlock for a bit of shopping. Needless to say we came home and booked to go back . Thanks.

Wonderful barn in a really quiet part of the Peak District. It was warm, welcoming and the owners provided everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. Best of all, the fireworks were hardly audible with TV on so our lovely dog had a really restful weekend. The garden is huge and secure with fences and walls so we were comfortable letting the Read moredog lay outside when the weather allowed. Matlock is a 5min drive away and there's plenty to see and do within a few miles. Hide
