It is our privilege to provide a level of care & hospitality rarely found in self catering accommodation, we wish to make your stay as special as we can, our guests remark on our attention to detail and all the extras we provide which they tell us makes their stay even more special.

We love to advise on the best places to visit, some off the beaten track too, we were both brought up in the Peak district so hope we can introduce you to some special places others may not know.

Our priority here is to make sure you can walk through the door and immediately relax, forget all your worries for a while, enjoy the escapism and beautiful surroundings of the Staffordshire Moorlands in the Peak District National Park.

You will love the tranquility and comfort plus those little extra touches at Ford Old Hall Barn which nestles in the secluded picturesque farming hamlet of Ford, on the river Hamps in the Stunning Staffordshire Moorlands area of the Peak District National Park, yet we are only 8 miles & a 15 minute drive to Alton Towers.

Ford Old Hall is a Grade 11 listed building which dates back to the 1500‘s,  whilst the Barn is a 21st century conversion offering discerning guests luxury with the highest of standards and all modern facilities, it still retains the absolute charm of this 16th century farming hamlet which still has that slower pace of life as it is off the beaten track, we are close to the local market towns of Ashbourne, Leek & Bakewell & set within the magnificent scenery of the Staffordshire Moorlands on the Hamps Way & very close to The Manifold Valley, Dovedale with the Stepping Stones, The Roaches, Chatsworth & Haddon Hall.

If you are looking to retreat away from the ‘hustle & bustle’ with fabulous walking or cycling country straight from the door, or indeed, want great amenities close by, then look no further than Ford Old Hall Barn which delivers it all. If you want to escape the traffic you can certainly do that here, a dozen cars a day is a ‘rush’, you are more likely to encounter the odd tractor or two!

At Ford Old Hall Barn we strive to exceed your expectations & we will try to accommodate any special requests you may have so don’t hesitate to ask & we will see what we can do, it is so important to us that you relax straight away & get the most from your stay here. We are available at any time should you wish us to be and if you don’t then that’s ok too and you will be able to simply enjoy the privacy of the barn without being disturbed.
