As a key worker spending the weekend by myself, I needed quiet and safe accommodation locally to work on a project. From the start of my stay, I felt completely at home. In a lovely countryside location, Harebell removes you from the hustle and bustle of busy life in an instant. It offers privacy with beautiful views, an elegant, fully furnished interior with the feeling of home and a host who is both professional and friendly. The accommodation is furnished to a high standard, offering every amenity needed for a luxurious stay. I was most impressed by the spa-like bathrobes, slippers, fluffy towels and underfloor heating in the bathroom, not to mention the wonderfully comfortable bed. Flowers, fresh farm milk and eggs were delivered to the doorstep shortly after my arrival. Thank you, Emma for creating such a wonderful home from home. It was just what I needed to complete the task in hand. I simply fell in love with (Website hidden by Airbnb) much so that I would rather like to keep it a secret and hope to return next time with my husband for a weekend break.

We had a lovely week staying in Harebell. The place is in a lovely quiet part of the countryside on the edge of the Peak District only 15 minutes from Ashbourne. We found pretty much all the places we wanted to visit in the Peaks were less than an hour away. The accommodation has everything you need including a comfortable large bed. Emma made us feel very welcome and had lots of suggestions for places to visit and things to do.

A beautiful place in a serene setting. The sun sets here are second to none! Super comfy sofa and bed. Great information from the host about where to visit, where to eat and general area knowledge. Check in and out was easy and Emma was so helpful in accommodating a late check out request. We would definitely visit again.

OMG - we absolutely loved it. We spent 9 days in total at Harewell and what an amazing stay it was. The barn is so beautifully decorated we felt like we were at home in many ways. The location of the farm is perfect. Down a quiet lane away from the little village but close enough to get to Derby in 15 minutes or so. The best feature for me was the comfy bed. Emma, you have nailed it. We have found our new home for our yearly visits to the UK. Thanks for looking after us during our stay. We will be back and telling our friends about your amazing property.

Idyllic, tasteful, attention to detail, high quality, Covid compliant Lovely cottage barn, - a quality tasteful conversion with beautiful furniture and a wonderfully comfy bed. Idyllic rural location with lovely grounds to be enjoyed. Emma is a fab host - very kind and generous.- she has thought of everything with NO skimping on coathangers!! Drinks and snacks on arrival. Tennis court seemed to be of an excellent standard altho we didnt actually use it. We played golf and enjoyed some stunning walks and relaxed. You can walk from the property, Excellent pubs and eateries (Duncombe Arms, Saracens Head, The Cock) altho wise to book in advance. We would definitely return if in the area. Thank you Emma for a really great week

Exceptionally high standard! We stayed in Harebell for four weeks in the summer and it was utterly perfect. The accommodation feels brand new, fully furnished to a very high standard with everything you could ever need. You feel at home the second you walk in. Emma is the perfect host and treats you more like family than just guests. She really has created a little bubble of perfection. You feel like you have the entire place to yourself most of the time even though there are other properties within the grounds. The private road leading up to the property and the beautifully maintained gardens leads you well away from an already quiet road until you're surrounded by nothing but fields and wildlife. If you just want to stay indoors its perfect, if you want to sit outside and enjoy the gardens and wildlife it's perfect, if you want to explore the Peak District is perfect, if you want to cycle or run locally or further afield its perfect. I can't think of a single bad thing to say about this place. I would 100% recommend to anyone and would love to go back again!

Amazing location perfectly placed to visit points of interest From the moment we drove up to the barns on North Lane we felt like we were in the heart of the country. We had welcome drinks waiting for our arrival and a thoughtful card to celebrate our parents ruby wedding anniversary. We had two barns; Mulberry and Harebell. Both were furnished to a high standard. When making the booking the owner was very helpful and ensured nothing was too much of a bother. We had an online shop delivered which the owner had accepted on our behalf as we were caught up in traffic en route. We also received some homemade jam from the owner the day before our departure. The little treats were very pleasant and well received. Nice touch. An additional bonus of onsite tennis court in great condition which we made use of two days out of our three day visit. Great place to go and relax in a remote location. You will need a car to be able to get around as no amenities are within walking distance. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to get away to a peaceful barn self catered experience.

Fantastic small space with lovely attention to detail and interior design. A very easy transaction from start to finish. Emma is a genuine, kind and helpful lady who has lots to offer with regards to knowledge of the local area. She has created a wonderful small functional space with no expense spared. As soon as we arrived we felt at home, everything here that you could possibly need and more. Situated away from the hustle and bustle a very relaxing special place that we will remember.

Excellent Holiday Cottage We chose this cottage after looking at the photos online and were not disappointed. The conversion is done to a really high standard with modern appliances but the cottage feels really homely. The location is great for exploring the area. There were lots of nice extra touches, when we arrived there was fresh herbs in the kitchen and milk in the fridge, there were lots of leaflets and maps of things to do but the place is also perfect for a relaxing night in. Next time we are looking for a cosey get away we will try book HAREbell again,

Luxurious, relaxing and with stunning attention to every detail Having been in many self catering properties over the years,last year we both agreed we rated Appleseed Barn as our favourite of all (same owner- Emma). However,Harebell has brought us a dilemma- which of the two properties to choose for next year! Harebell is not just a home from home but a home you would aspire to live in -permanently! So much so we arranged to stay longer than we had booked for.The bed is so comfy, especially after days spent cycling,sight seeing and walking. The equipment provided easy to use and of a very high standard with a very elegant interior. So many things to see and do all within a short distance. Cycling at Carsington and the old railway lines,looking for antiques in Ashbourne,eating lovely fresh food in the surrounding area. Listening to the peace and quiet with birdsong in the disttance.All of this including a warm welcome-what more could you ask! We will be back-maybe I should just keep it a secret?

Wonderfully relaxing stay in beautifully appointed barn in idyllic location Brailsford Barns are perfectly situated to explore the Peak District. You approach the barn down a long drive and there is plenty of secure parking. The barn is situated in a quiet and peaceful location - you really feel you are away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. There are beautiful views from the barn and lovely walks straight from the front door. I was only the second visitor to this immaculate new barn conversion which has loads of character. The rooms are beautifully appointed with top quality appliances and fittings, and lovely finishing touches such as the choice of furnishings and fresh flowers. The bed was incredibly comfy and the shower and bathroom would have graced a top London hotel. Although I was visiting in May I was glad the barn was so warm and cosy after a busy day out and about. There is a lot to do in the area. My booking was handled in a very professional but friendly manner, and the owner made me feel very welcome including a thoughtfully put together welcome pack. I will definitely return and would have no hesitation to recommend the barn for couples seeking a quiet / romantic break or for an executive working in the area for a period of time.
