Alstonefield Camping Barn - An Alternative Camping Experience in the Peak District for couples, families, groups of friends, walkers, cyclists, scouts, Duke of Edinburgh and School Groups. Basic venue for corporate bookings for team building - located on our working farm nr Alstonefield, Derbyshire

Reached by an old bridle path our Camping barn nestles at the foot of Narrowdale Hill, providing basic communal accommodation for 1 to 12 persons with car parking.

PLEASE NOTE THE BARN MUST BE BOOKED ON A SOLE USE BASIS AT WEEKENDS. TO HIRE THE BARN FOR SOLE USE FOR A MAXIMUM OF 12 PERSONS THE PRICE IS £102 TOTAL PER NIGHT. If booking over a bank holiday weekend please be aware that it is a minimum 2 night booking.

There is a lovely meadow next to the barn which can be used for camping in addition to booking the barn. A couple of tents are allowed at the back of the barn bringing the maximum number of people at the barn to 16 maximum.

This quaint remote barn enjoys far reaching views and dale walks from the door. Having no electric and no distractions it is the perfect place to switch off from the hassles of a hectic life. Its like camping but you don't get wet!

The ground floor comprises:-
Entrance lobby with coat hooks and plenty of room for storing boots, rucksacks, etc.
Cooking, eating and living area with two large picnic tables,
Kitchen units, sink and cooking bench
Multi-fuel stove - which is purely for heating the barn and cannot be used for cooking. Only dry seasoned logs or smokeless fuel should be burned- enquire when booking.

A cold water tap at the front of the barn for washing dirty boots.

The first floor is very traditional retaining:-

Original exposed stone work
Magnificent internal wooden beams
The Old wooden hay stalls - these have been reused as a feature providing a safety barrier around the stairwell
This large empty room enjoys wonderful views from both windows

Please be aware that our barn is not a suitable venue for loud celebrations parties and hen and stag parties.
