  • Best price guarantee

    Our cottages are professionally managed by our partners and payments are taken by them, but rest assured, by booking via Snaptrip you'll pay the lowest possible price for your trip.

    We never charge you more than you would pay booking directly on the partner's site and if you become a member you can save even more. If you find a property priced lower anywhere else on the internet (we’d be amazed if you do), simply email us at marketing@snaptrip.com and we'll refund you the difference.

    The rural village of Alton lies on the western fringes of the wonderful Peak District National Park, in beautiful moorland countryside between the market towns of Leek and Ashbourne. The village has a local post office, village store and lovely pubs serving fantastic food to enjoy. Walking and cycling is excellent in this area with miles of woodland trails to enjoy. Close by you will find the thrilling Alton Towers theme park for the adrenaline junkies amongst you. Dovedale and the limestone Churnet Valley are also right on the doorstep, and the Manifold Way is also close by. From The Cow Barn you have easy access to many of the area’s attractions, including Chatsworth and Haddon country estates, Lyme Park, as seen in the TV drama ’Pride and Prejudice’ and Ilam Park to explore. This really is the ideal place from which to enjoy a wonderful break at any time of the year. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant ¾ mile.
