Situated to the east of the picturesque village of Tissington, and with gorgeous views of the Trail and the Derbyshire countryside, the barn sleeps four and has all available mod cons – solar PV panels for electricity, underfloor air source heating, electric vehicle charger, Wi-Fi, and solitude!

With commanding views over the Tissington Trail to Carsington Water, the converted barn offers a unique and peaceful setting for your visit to one of the prettiest villages in the Peak District.

Rowsley based firm Peak Building Brigade managed the project for Estate owner Sir Richard FitzHerbert. Only local trades and craftspeople were used in the construction of the project, with the garden room lovingly created by Tissington based joiner Robin Penfold and his team.

Peter Agertoft, Managing Director of Peak Building Brigade, commented:

‘It was an absolute pleasure to be involved from start to finish on High Flatts. We took a disused barn from near derelict state to the most highly insulated and eco-friendly building on the estate. It was fascinating to work with other local suppliers to produce the excellent holiday letting that we have today. We were very keen to install photovoltaic solar panels in the roof as well as the air source heating that provides the warmth inside the building. Our team loved working on it and of course enjoyed the marvellous views as well’.

Sir Richard chairs the local tourist board Marketing Peak District & Derbyshire (MPDD) and, on taking on the role last year, pledged to promote sustainability during his chairmanship.

‘I am pleased that our team has managed to produce such a special place in the midst of the Peak District,’ he said, ‘We look forward to welcoming visitors to the village at High Flatts Barn. The property has a bicycle store and an electric vehicle charger so it is a thoroughly sustainable destination as well as heavily insulated. It makes a great base to explore the wider area from Ashbourne to Buxton to Bakewell and all the great places in between’.
