Chestnut Barn is in the popular, pretty Peak District village of Stoney Middleton. Just across the road is the village pub ‘The Moon Inn’, which serves excellent food and drink and is dog-friendly. Just up the road is the Toll Bar fish & chip shop – well worth a visit! Stoney Middleton also has an excellent Indian restaurant.
One mile down the road at Calver there is a petrol station and a large Spar shop for general provisions, fresh bread and a wide selection of wines and local beers.
From the village there are many lovely walks into the beautiful surrounding countryside. Why not try one of our Let’s Go Peak District local walks during your stay?
Our Stoney Middleton to Coombs Dale Walk(4.75 miles) is wonderful and starts very close to Chestnut Barn. It takes you into a hidden, secret valley, Coombs Dale, one of the lesser known Peak District dales, and a place where you’re almost guaranteed peace and quiet. It follows well-made paths to Black Harry Gate, once the hunting ground of a notorious highwayman, before returning along country lanes and field paths to the starting point.
Or our Eyam to Stoney Middleton Walk(5.5 miles) takes you in a Figure of 8, with the historic village of Eyam providing the start, middle and end point. You can do both circles with a break in the middle, or choose to complete either one on its own. The first half of the Figure of 8 takes you out of Eyam and down to the pretty village of Stoney Middleton, taking in fantastic views along the way. The second half takes you through Eyam in the other direction, offering splendid views over the village from Eyam Edge.
Only a short 5 min drive from Chestnut Barn will take you to the former railway trail of the Monsal Trail, where bike hire is available at Hassop Station, a historic building that has been repurposed into a lovely book and gift shop and excellent cafe.
