A sympathetically converted barn with outstanding uninterrupted views of the Derbyshire Dales and Peaks The Old Cart House is set on a working farm. Originally a store for grain and feed, the original arches which once accommodated the carts are now glazed doorways out into the fully enclosed private courtyard garden with wood fired hot tub, alfresco dining and seating areas.

Although the barn is set in peaceful and rural position we are only two miles from Matlock Town with its supermarkets, pubs, restaurants and vibrant vintage shops across the bridge. The stunning Chatsworth Estate is only a 6-mile drive over the picturesque moors, with its splendid house and gardens and sprawling estate teeming with sheep and deer along the riverside, not forgetting an award-winning farm shop.

If you are wanting peace and privacy with walks from your doorstep to woodlands with tranquil dams and a waterfall, this is the place for you.
