About this Holiday Cottage

This stunning self catering holiday cottage has been lovingly restored from an old barn by local craftsmen who have fitted out the living spaces to the highest specifications. The property is perched high on the edge of the Peak District National Park and enjoys magnificent views across seven counties from Shropshire to Snowdonia and Cheshire to Manchester. The 180 degree panorama faces due west, so we get amazing sunsets over the surrounding countryside. Though the property enjoys a tranquil rural location we are a mere 15 minute drive from Macclesfield, 20 minutes to Buxton and an hour from Manchester. Email or call us now to book.


The Best View in Britain Barn has a large modern alpine themed living room with comfortable sofa, large TV, DVD player, stereo, telescope, books and games. The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher, electric oven and microwave along with all the cooking gizmos you need. The attached utility room has an extra toilet along with a washer / dryer for your convenience.

Bedrooms / Bathrooms

The barn has two bedrooms, sleeping 4 people. The master bedroom has a super king-size bed with extraordinary views through a full height arched window of the twinkling lights of Manchester in the distance. It has the added luxury of an en-suite bathroom with a double ended bath. The second twin bedroom has two single beds and a shower room with a spacious walk in shower. You'll have a choice of feather & down or synthetic pillows, soft Egyptian cotton linen and large, fluffy towels. You will even get natural complimentary toiletries from Face Boutique.


French doors allow you to step directly onto the large terrace where you can enjoy the magnificent views with a glass of wine on warm summer's evenings. Guests also have the use of two fields.

Special to Best View in Britain Barn

Location, location and those glorious views!!   Our views are so spectacular that in the last six months alone, they have been photographed in national newspapers (The Telegraph, The Daily Mail) and used in a TV feature film and a TV documentary.

Other Things to Note

A welcome hamper is provided with a collection of provisions and a bottle of wine, allowing you to get on with the serious business of enjoying your stay! Homemade food and delicious cakes can also be supplied and we can arrange delivery of organic produce from local suppliers. We welcome both children and dogs. We do ask that dogs are kept on a lead whilst outside at all times as the surrounding fields are home to sheep and cattle and are not enclosed. Water and dog bowls can be provided by prior arrangement.

We are located in walker’s paradise, surrounded by hills and valleys, canals and lakes. The area is also suitable for serious mountain-bikers. Cyclists who like to take it easier can follow the numerous canal paths. If you want to go sailing there are a number of lakes near by. There is rock-climbing, pot-holing and other adventurous activities.

If you prefer sight-seeing there are some wonderful stately homes, ranging from Chatsworth House to Gawsworth Hall, Lyme Park to Tatton House all within an hour’s drive.
