    About this property

    This wonderful Derbyshire property is in a wonderful location with an array of local amenities within walking distance.
    Thoughtfully furnished to a high standard throughout, The Barn at Forest View nestles quietly along a driveway in a rural setting. The property is light and airy with full bi-folding doors in the open plan living space, leading onto the patio with wonderful views. The large open plan living space is home to a well-equipped kitchen area, a dining area and comfortable and lovingly decorated living area. The first floor boasts two large bedrooms with kingsize beds, one of which is en-suite with free-standing bath. A spacious wet room can also be found on the ground floor.
    If you can take yourself away from all that The Barn at Forest View has to offer, then why not visit the National Trust Calke Abbey, which is a beautiful and historic house within a 600-acre nature reserve. Also close by you will find the Staunton Harold reservoir, with its yacht club and children’s activity play area. The largest inland marina in Europe is just 4 miles away at Willington Mercia House. Donnington race track is not to be missed as it is home to the Grand Prix collection in the museum, and it is also the host for many major motor cycling and racing events. Ideally situated on the edge of the National Forest, there is easy access to a plethora of beautiful countryside with an array of walking, bird watching and cycling opportunities. A little further afield is the Peak District National Park which lays claim to the renowned Chatsworth House, as well as the historic towns of Bakewell, Matlock and Matlock Bath, so you surely won’t be stuck for things to do. After a day exploring the surrounding area, venture back to beautiful Melbourne, with its wealth of pubs, shops, restaurants and wonderful period architecture. Shop and pub ½ mile, restaurant ¾ mile.

    "We enjoyed our stay at Forest View. The décor is very well thought out and the cottage was spotlessly clean with good quality fixtures and fittings. We enjoyed watching the planes fly over on the approach to the airport, although may disrupt sleep during hot weather as windows have to be left open and no fan.There are a few things that would have made our stay more comfortable:A blind at the en-suite window is a must.Ditto the lounge bi-folding windows need blinds to provide privacy and help shield the room during hot sunny days.More hangers, or ideally a wardrobe or hanging rail in each room.Shelves and hooks in the shower room to put toiletries and hang clothes on – we had to move a table in from the lounge.The website mentions patio and ipod dock but these were not present.Instructions for hobb, coffee-maker, recycling etc would be helpful."

    "Great week spent in the cottage. The barn has recently been finished and is completed to a really good standard. Melbourne is a nice village with just about enough to keep you going. But a car is essential to get out and about from the Melbourne.Would definitely stay again in the barn if back around the area"
    "We had a lovely stay at The Barn in April '18, Jennifer was really helpful and the Barn was spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished, with loads of space for our one year old to explore. It has great views and we'd have loved to open the bi-fold doors and let the morning sunshine in had it not been unseasonably chilly. The local town with various restaurants, pubs and a supermarket is within walking distance as is a lovely reservoir with nice walks and a playground. There's no dishwasher or washing machine but Jennifer was very helpful with emergency washing after our little girl became car sick...Thanks for a great stay, we would definitely visit again."
    "A lovely spacious Barn, perfect for a relaxing holiday. We will definitely be returning."
