The double-height barn has 4 new double bedrooms sleeping up to 8 people with new solid oak doors and floors, 3 contemporary bathrooms, a newly-fitted luxury fully equipped kitchen with NEFF appliances, a log burner, huge luxurious velvet sofas, super fast broadband and has its own private half-acre gated gardens and parking for up to 5 cars..

Our location is very rural and quiet and only a walk from the impressive Roaches and the lovely River Dane Valley which are on our doorstep. Macclesfield, Leek and Buxton are only a short drive away. A large network of walking and cycling routes is easily accessible from High Ridge. There are many local attractions including the renowned Wincle Brewery and some great pubs and restaurants. Enjoying tranquillity and beautiful views, the Barn location is very relaxing.


Amazing place

By Thadit on 26-Oct-2020

Fantastic place. Extremely clean, very well equipped and beautiful location. Would highly recommend this for a family of 6-8 or small group. The little things made all the difference in the place. Thanks Rosie.

Ultimate luxury in perfect country location

By Tony T on 19-Sep-2020

Just wanted to get away for a few days after lockdown, somewhere the dogs would be welcome but with good food, good pubs and spectacular walks, this is the place to stay. It's a four bedroom barn conversion done to a luxury scale in which you'll want for nothing. In addition to the walks and the pubs, in the four nights we were there, we visited Chatsworth House and (the younger ones) Alton Towers - both less than an hours drive in spectacular country side. The owners provided freshly laid eggs and freshly baked bread every morning making breakfast a real treat.

A hidden gem in the most wonderful setting

By 512vickyj on 14-Apr-2020

We stayed at High Ridge Barn and I have to say this is we had the most amazing break we could ever wish for. If I could give Rosie at 10* rating I would! The accommodation is out of this world, the best we have ever stayed in. There are so many thoughtful touches, from the bread, beer and cake upon arrival. To items that surprised us in every room...free from toiletries, the vast array of coffees and the games for adults and children. Not to mention the quality of the furnishings. But the bit that surpassed us all is the way we welcomingly warmed by Rosie and Rob. Both children and dogs have some fond memories of the doggy bath and chicken feeding and egg finding. We will definitely be returning.

We had a lovely weekend at this gorgeous property. Rob and Rosie have thought of everything and are very accommodating. The property is decorated and furnished to an extremely high standard which helped make our stay perfect. The location is brilliant and there are some lovely walks right on the door step.

Emma Clarke recommends High Ridge Barn.

By Emma Clarke on 07-Oct-2019

If you are looking for a lovely place to relax in beautiful surroundings then I highly recommend High Ridge Barn. The barn is beautifully renovated, very spacious and easily accommodates a large group of all ages. It is in such a peaceful location with great walks from the door though if you don’t want to move you can watch the sheep grazing and the birds feeding from the lounge. The dogs loved it too and the doggy spa, it’s dog heaven! Rosie & Rob are very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Can’t wait to return

Simply superb - luxury home from home for pooches and people!

By 66lindam66 on 22-Sep-2019

Wow! What can I say that the other reviews have not. Rosie and Rob are fantastic. Attention to detail is amazing right from their first communications. When we arrived, it was clear that every small detail had been thought of. We were a group of 7 girls and 3 pooches. The house is stunning and given that we had a great week of weather we spent most of it outside. The views are fantastic and it's a really peaceful setting. It's fairly remote which is how we loved it, 10 mins drive to the pub and 15 mins into Leek. We has a Tesco delivery on day 1 and popped to Macclesfield mid-week. Enjoyed lovely BBQs and lunches out. Just one thing to be mindful of. We ate at The Ship Inn one evening and it was really not good. Not sure if it was just a bad night as reviews seem quite mixed but our experience was poor, food-wise. We enjoyed walks on the doorstep, with a path up to The Roaches. We would definitely recommend Rosie and Rob's place and will look forward to visiting again in the future. Rosie and Rob thank you so much.

Jo Hickman recommends High Ridge Barn.

By Jo Hickman on 19-Aug-2019

We have just got home from the most perfect weekend at High Ridge Barn.
Rob and Rosie have thought of absolutely everything.
The barn is stunning and has everything you could possibly need, and even things you never knew you would need!
We were 8 adults and 3 dogs, it was great knowing we could fully relax in the garden as they were completely secure for the dogs
The walks they recommended were stunning and the dog bath was a brilliant help after a muddy walk!
Couldn’t recommend it highly enough and we will definitely be back!

Family break at High Ridge Barn

By Lynn J on 20-Jun-2019

Our family gathered for a 'big' birthday celebration at beautiful High Ridge Barn. The barn and grounds were fantastic. Everything done to such a high specification with no expense spared. Rob and Rosie were so helpful and couldn't do enough for us. 3 year old Jack loved feeding the chickens and playing in the garden with all the outdoor games provided. Marley the dog enjoyed a wash and blowdry in the pet parlour. The adults in the party loved relaxing in the sauna after a busy day. All the furnishings and bed linens were of the highest quality and the kitchen provided more gadgets than we could imagine.

It was lovely to arrive to a fresh loaf of home made bread. cake and local brewery beer, as well as milk, tea etc. We highly recommend High Ridge Barn and thank Rob and Rosie for providing such a super property.

Pristine and well thought out barn

By Ruby W on 10-Jun-2019

Beautiful Barn conversion set in picturesque and peaceful surroundings. The owners have thought of everything, from a dog grooming shed, slippers and dressing gowns, a lovely welcome package on arrival, and even offered to receive and put away our online shopping. Would highly recommend and will hopefully return again.

Beautiful barn stay

By Anon on 30-May-2019

This property is beautiful and everything in it is high end quality. The 8 of us and dog had a fabulous time chilling out, playing boardgames and enjoyed a lovely bbq. Everything you could possibly need is provided and the welcome hamper is a lovely touch. Would definitely stay here again and recommend for anyone looking for a luxurious sanctuary. Very dog friendly which was so refreshing. Thanks for a wonderful stay

Fantastic stay in a beautiful house - highly recommend!

By KLM2511London on 07-May-2019

Eight of us came to stay at High Ridge Barn to celebrate our 30th birthday's. From the start Rosie and Rob were fantastic hosts, and extremely helpful - even unpacking our food shop delivery for us! The fresh eggs & homemade bread on arrival was a lovely extra. The house itself was fantastic, with all the amenities you could possibly need. Lovely big rooms and bathrooms (robes and slippers were a great bonus), all nicely done out. The location was great for us with lots of nice walks right on your doorstep. We will definitely be visiting again next year!

Warm, welcoming and extremely comfortable stay - all mod cons !

By Nigel L on 03-May-2019

A group of seven of us stayed for two nights, for some weekend hiking through The Roaches, Lud's Church and surrounding areas. The barn was very clean, spacious, and well presented, and renovated to a high specification making the whole experience very comfortable. We cooked for ourselves, and the kitchen was very well equipped. The place has plenty of bathrooms and is well set up for groups, so at no time did we feel crowded. The hosts were very welcoming, and set up the wood fire sauna for us after our hike, which was a fantastic treat after a long days hike. We would certainly return and highly recommend to all.

Jessica Dickinson recommends High Ridge Barn.

By Jessica Dickinson on 14-Apr-2019

We stayed at High Ridge Barn for a weekend in April and absolutely loved it. The accommodation is gorgeous and Rob/Rosie have thought of everything you could possibly need and more! The barn is in a stunning area with lots of countryside walks and we especially appreciated how dog friendly it was. Would highly recommend this as a place to stay and we hope to visit again in the future.

Return visit

By Jane D on 05-Apr-2019

Having spent a wonderful family weekend at High Ridge Barn in September last year we were eager to return. We received a warm welcome from owners Rob and Rosie. The welcome pack is the best I’ve come across. Homemade bread, muffins, local beer and bottled water. 6 months on the barn is still in pristine condition. The weather was glorious and we were able to further explore the local area. Another great weekend.

Great house, great location, very welcoming hosts

By Chris F on 20-Feb-2019

We had a lovely break in the Peak District, and really enjoyed staying at High Ridge Barn. It’s newly refurbished, well designed, and stocked with everything we needed for our mixed troop of kids, teens, middlers and oldies. Rosie and Rob were so welcoming and really cared about the quality of our stay. Thoroughly recommend and hope to return in the future.

By FarAway35003465053 on 10-Feb-2019

We had a brilliant weekend here celebrating a family birthday. Rosie and Rob are fantastic hosts - very generous and friendly, they really made us feel welcome. The barn conversion is stunning and immaculate. It is also cosy and a lovely place to relax even if the weather isn't great. We really appreciated how dog friendly everything was and how welcome our dog was! There were lovely and easily accessible walks. We highly recommend it.

Absolutely fabulous and stylish property, in an incredible location

By Iain P on 23-Nov-2018

The property is wonderfully presented and is absolutely immaculate throughout. The furnishings and fittings are of an extremely high standard, it has been modernised with great care and detail whilst managing to retain character with its original features subtly positioned in each room. As soon as we entered the property we were immediately taken in by it’s cosy atmosphere which certainly helped us relax and enjoy the fabulous countryside and views. The surrounding area is simply beautiful. The property is ideally positioned for walking and exploring this exquisite part of the Peak District. On arrival, we were provided with a guided tour and the owners had baked us fresh bread and muffins and had left a few bottles of real ale from the Wincle Brewery, and some fresh eggs which was a lovely gesture. If you book this property, you will not be disappointed I promise. Thank you Rob and Rosie for an amazing break!

Paradise in the Peak District

By Charles Holden on 29-Oct-2018

Sometimes reality does not match the anticipation. Nothing could be further from such at Highridge Barn as the”WoW” factor kicks in from the moment the outstanding hosts, Ron and Rosie, welcome you. The accommodation surpasses any anticipation from the pictures on the website - spacious, light, fitted out to the highest specification and equipped for every eventuality. The dog grooming facilities were so good that Grandpa contemplated using them as a private facility! The sauna is a must - as it is a proper sauna with cold (and hot!) shower. The scenery is stunning and the walks from the front door are awesome. By now you will have gleaned that our time in Highridge Barn was very, very special. Rob and Rosie have endeavoured to make your stay as special as they can - successfully; no self-catering accommodation will ever be the same again as they have set the benchmark very high indeed. Have no qualms, this is one booking you will not regret! Charles, Vicki, Jono, Gaynor, Lilia, Alfie, Ella and Coco.

Beautiful Barn Conversion with Stunning Views

By 191hayley23 on 01-Oct-2018

I was looking for somewhere in the Peak District for two families of four to meet for a long weekend and I was fortunate enough to find High Ridge. From the very first enquiry Rob and Rosie could not have been more helpful and when we arrived at the barn we were not disappointed. The barn was newly converted to a very high standard, every little detail has been considered and it is extremely well equipped. There was a hamper and delicious homemade cake waiting for us and the whole place felt so cosy and homely. The beds were comfortable, the towels soft and really you couldn't want for anything. As far as the local area goes we didn't really venture out other than for some walks which we loved. If we had been there longer then there are plenty of places to visit within easy reach.We also took our dog who was made to feel very welcome and being able to clean her up easily after our walks in the grooming cabin was such a treat. Rob & Rosie are fabulous hosts and always on hand if you need them, we are already planning our return visit.

Luxurious, stylish yet homely pet friendly country barn

By Jane D on 21-Sep-2018

Nestled in the beautiful Swythamley valley, High Ridge barn is modern and stylish yet still retains traditional features. It is the perfect location to escape the hustle and bustle of life. There are numerous country walks from the doorstep and other activities and attractions nearby if required. The barn has been renovated both inside and out to an extremely high standard. The kitchen, bathrooms and furnishings are second to none. The outside area includes a lawn and patio all beautifully and sympathetically landscaped. The owners Rob and Rosie who live in the house next door were very welcoming and friendly without being intrusive. Upon our arrival there was a welcome pack of groceries, including amongst other delicious goodies homemade bread and cake and beer from the local Wincle brewery. It was the little touches that we really appreciated. Toiletries in the bathrooms. Binoculars to view the wildlife including the local woodpeckers at the bird feeders. Treats and toys for our 2 labradors. Even earplugs in the bedrooms. Rob and Rosie have thought of everything to cater for both human and canine guests. We made full use of the garden sauna and our 2 dogs enjoyed the dog spa on our final day. All in all a wonderful weekend and I’m sure we will be back.

Amazing high-spec barn in a beautiful setting with fantastic hosts!

By Jenny Towell on 31-Aug-2018

Loved this fantastic barn, everything was perfect! It was spacious, well-equipped and all 8 of us felt very comfortable in this high-specification holiday rental.
The owners were very friendly and great hosts. Nothing was a problem. They live next door which is ideal if you need to ask anything but they give you privacy if/when needed. They reassured us from the outset that they have no issue with noise.
They absolutely love dogs and provide for pets also. They provided a bed, toys, treats and even a professional grooming area to wash them in.
The sauna is a lovely add on and it had the best view I've ever had from a sauna!

Superb place to stay

By Tour802161 on 26-Aug-2018

This luxurious, yet homely, Peak District barn was perfect in everyway. The owners have created a contemporary interior but maintained and restored the barn's characteristics. The sitting room with its high beamed ceilings and large window, which enabled you to watch the birds feeding on the pergola and look out onto uninterrupted countryside views was probably a favourite of mine. The barn was very well equipped with everything we needed. The indoor and outdoor games were an added bonus to our entertainment. Everything from the bed linen & towels to the free standing bath were of superb quality. Rosie and Rob were always on hand if you needed anything. Thank you for the wonderful welcome pack and the organic bathroom toiletries. We all had a truly amazing and fabulous time. We will certainly be booking to stay here again.

Peak District Barn Conversion: a wonderful holiday retreat, stylish and architectural, yet comfy and a real home. We stayed at High Ridge Barn during five days in august, 2018. It is a surprisingly complete and very well designed cottage with plenty of room for eight people; three bathrooms; a very complete kitchen, open plan with dining area with superb views. All a fine combination of fresh and tasteful modern design and functionality with warm features such as sumptuous sofa's, pillows, beautiful oak flooring, luxuriously large and comfortable beds and exquisite decoration. All high end but tastefully done and non-intrusive. The owners are very kind and really made us feel most welcome. In the outside area the views of the wonderful Peak district continue; it allows for perfect breakfasts in the morning sun and al fresco dining. A fine bbq, a sauna, a large terrace, a lawn with the possibility to improve one's golf swings. Walks into the surrounding countryside start at the doorstep. Although we did not bring a pet ourselves, we could see dogs are very welcome, based on e.g. special amenities for them and the enthusiasm the owners displayed in this respect. The house is very clean and contains everything one could wish for. Pleasant surprises were the extremely fast wifi, the continuous hot water supply and details such as boot heating in the entrance/cloakroom. A splendid extra after long autumn and winter walks we imagined. Buxton is nearby, a wonderful town with a.so an opera house an fine independent shops. Furthermore some very nice restaurants(the owners know the area and are happy to inform you about the possibilities). A perfect base to explore and enjoy The Peak District and to relax! We certainly recommend High Ridge Barn to others and plan to come back to it.
