A picturesque retreat sitting proudly above the meadows of Dunwood, only 3 miles from the town of Leek, this aesthetically pleasing barn conversion has been renovated with groups of families and friends in mind. Boasting exposed beams and original stonework, it’s been carefully curated to ensure the charm of this old property is retained whilst enhancing it with contemporary features and interior design. The surrounding countryside offers an abundance of opportunity to enjoy the outdoors with the country parks of Deep Hayes and Ladderedge just over a mile away, Rudyard Lake (2.5 miles), RSPB Coombes Valley (7 miles) and Peak Wildlife Park (9 miles). For those seeking days full of adventure and adrenaline, Peak District is only 10 miles away and Alton Towers is 14 miles away. Whilst the property’s setting immerses you in countryside living, you can easily fill your week exploring the bordering counties of Derbyshire, Cheshire and Shropshire and making it an all-year-round destination for making memories. For those travelling to the area for weddings, there are six venues within a 5-mile radius of the property.

Step into the property through the main entrance hall or alternatively, head through the side entrance which takes you straight into an impressive kitchen and dining area. This is the space that will quickly become the heart of the home with ample room for everyone to gather around the kitchen island and dining table, marvelling over the stunning vista through the expansive floor-to-ceiling windows. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you’ll need to rustle up those special celebratory meals or the mammoth morning fry-up for the whole group, including a pod coffee machine for those who need the caffeine. From the kitchen, travel down the hallway where you’ll find a full utility room with additional cupboard storage, a washing machine and a sink. Next to this is a separate downstairs WC. Before heading into the cosy sitting room at the end of the barn, which naturally creates a quieter space to retreat to with a large Smart TV and a comfortable sofa, take your time to appreciate the beautifully handcrafted oak stairway sitting in front of a very impressive floor to ceiling window, letting in an abundance of light and the feeling of the outdoors. In the nook of this feature stairway, there is a cosy space which is perfect for those wanting to sneak off for an afternoon read or a livelier playtime for the younger members of the family. Heading up to the first floor is where you’ll find the four bedrooms, three of which are super-king-size with en-suite shower rooms; the fourth being a twin with access to a bathroom, comprising a shower over the bath, and a WC. The character of this older property extends throughout, with the bedrooms and bathroom having no exception. Several Velux windows running along the barn’s roof let natural light flood the upstairs, where stunning exposed stonework and original oak beams fill the rooms with authentic, original charm. Each of the rooms have ample storage and have been tastefully decorated with neutral finishes and good-quality bed linen. The master bedroom provides incredible views over the stunning surrounding meadows, all to be enjoyed in the comfort of your own bed.

Outside, indulge in the picturesque setting of this former working farm, with south-facing gardens and far-reaching rural views. A paved patio is perfect for outside dining on the charcoal BBQ and enjoying the days from sunrise to sunset, whilst the stepped-down lawn area provides a safe space for children and dogs to frolic in the evening sun. Adjacent to the main barn is the old hay storage, which has now been transformed into a games and social space for the whole group to enjoy! A game of table football or pool is perfect for those who revel in competition whereas the ones who prefer a slower pace, can grab their favourite drink, get comfortable on the outside seating and gather around the firepit ready for late-night conversations and starry skies. Near the entrance of the farm, there is a warm water tap perfect for hosing the dogs down after a dirty day in the outdoors – this is shared with the neighbouring barn.
