The Barn:
Percy the peacock and his two friends, baby chickens and their parents, a very friendly cat, two pigs that like their snouts scratched - if this appeals to you then stay here!! Superbly placed in the Derbyshire countryside Dale End House is fantastic. We were a party of six and stayed in the converted barn. As you would expect from Alastar Sawdays the standard of the accomodation was excellent. Dale End House is nestled in beautiful countryside and placed very conviently for Chatsworth House, Monsal Head, Eyam (the Plague Village), Bakewell and loads of other places. Jean, July 2016

Extremely pleasant stay in idyllic surroundings with charming and very welcoming hosts. The Barn accommodation is extremely comfortable with state of the art d├ęcor and amenities. However, it was the little 'home-from-home' comforts which make the stay very memorable; a box of brio train track for the children to play with, time feeding and petting the piglets, ducks and bantams, the welcome and pleasant conversation between our hosts and ourselves. I would thoroughly recommend it for families and couples alike, both of whose needs are catered for. Julian, Clara & family October 2015.

Just spent a very enjoyable few nights at the Barn- beautifully appointed and spacious barn conversion with all the luxuries- lashings of hot water in luxury bathrooms, best quality linens and towels and superbly equipped kitchen with not an Ikea item in sight(!) very highly recommended- and the resident ducks, hens and peacocks are just gorgeous! take a pound of corn and feed them from your hand all in all a lovely place high on our list of return places to visit.  October 2015

Wow - What a fantastic place!  A beautiful Barn in a beautiful place.  A few days not long enough.  We will definitely be back and will recommend to many friends.  Thank you Paul, Sarah, William, James & Elizabeth for making us feel very welcome.  Ray & Jayne & family May 2016

We feel we've been in rural paradise for 4 days.  The setting is stunning and you've achieved an amazing standard in The Barn.  It's exceeded all our expectations, and we're just sorry to be heading home.  We wish you every success and hope to return on day.  You've created something very special here.  Emily, Tom & Family, July 2016.

Our entire family came from Norway and we have all fallen in love with this place!  The boys have been out feeding and holding the ducks and chickens all day - and we have enjoyed every moment in this fabulous house.  My guess is that it will soon appear in the magazines like Elle Decoration or Conde Nast Traveller.  Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.  We will miss the sheep, the peacocks, the chickens, ducks and the house.  The weather has been marvellous too!  Yesterday we went swimming in the river near Youlgreave! Hope to be back soon!  Sven & family, Oslo
