WinowWinnow Barns are nestled in a tranquil hamlet amidst the picturesque setting of the Peak District National Park.  The traditional barns dating back to the 1700’s have recently been lovingly converted into luxury holiday accommodation combining the beauty of traditional materials with all the conveniences of modern day living. Winnow Barns provide the perfect country retreat for old and young alike.

Recommended by The Times ‘The three cottages are done out beautifully, pairing original features such as wooden beams with modern kitchens and bathrooms.’      

Once upon a time the barns were home to sheep and cattle on a working dairy farm. These days we share our home with a flock of Ryeland sheep, a litter of pigs, Wilfie and Jimbo the pygmy goats, Boris and Chicco the pet donkeys, a wise old pony and a brood of free range rescue hens…… not forgetting the three farm cats and two dogs.

Each exquisite barn combines sophisticated luxury with the original simplicity of exposed wooden beams,  lime plaster walls and a sprinkling of local limestone. Comfort is paramount, together with stylish fittings and designer flourishes to wow and seduce you….
