The greener features of the barn are carefully incorporated so that you hardly know they are there and require no expertise or knowledge. 

  • Central heating comes from the ground source heat pump and solar panels. 
  • Rainwater harvesting system works for all grey water.
  • Timbers replaced in the conversions were cut from local woods, and we have planted 20 acres of new woodland.  
  • The traditional lime plastered walls are painted in Earthbourne natural Clay paint.
  • The windows are all made from wood and painted with organic linseed oil paints.
  • Sheepswool insulation is used throughout the building
  • Natural clay aggregate forms the floor insulation in the limestone floor.
  • There are 4 herb borders from which guests can enjoy and pick their own herbs.



Be sure to check out our photo gallery of the 2 cottages and its surroundings.




  • Please bear in mind that we think the reception is good - for 2 applicances per cottage - but we are in the country and our WIFI may not be particularly suitable for some heavy downloading.
  • Wifi is also available in the bar area of the local pub The Three Horseshoes Inn (just 1 mile away) - there are also a varity of places in Leek with wifi ie Costa Coffee, Foxlowe Centre
  • Previous guests have also brought mobile Wifi gagets with them (before we got the WIFI installed) - we do know that 3.co.uk mobile wifi does work in both properties.  


  • Mobile phones reception is quite good with Orange Service (now EE) - O2 does not appear to always be as good.
  • Please bear in mind that some of the walls in the cottages are 20" thick.
  • The nearest public phone box is in Leek in the Market Place
