Frequently Asked Questions


Do you offer a cot and highchair?

Yes, we do provide one travel cot and one highchair at the property. Due to the designs of our two staircases, we are only able to fit a stairgate to the bottom of one; we therefore ask that children are supervised around both staircases.

Is a hot tub included in the price of the property?

No, we have the facilities to host a hot tub, however, we ask you to hire the hot tub for your stay with our recommended supplier. Payment would be made directly to the company.

Are food deliveries able to reach the mill?

Yes - we have previously had deliveries from Ocado, Morrisons, Sainsbury's, Tesco, and Peak District Deli.

Are there any pub walks near to Valley View Barn?

Yes, we have two local pubs, both of which have walks to and from the property:

  1. The Knockerdown Pub, Carsington
  2. The Olde Gate Inne, Brassington

We also recommend another pub a short drive from Valley View Barn called the Bentley Brook Inn.  For further information, please request our Pub Walk document, alternatively all the information you will need including a step-by-step guide to the pub and back (map included) will be provided at the property.

Are there any flat walks you would recommend?

Yes, we would recommend Tissington Trail, Carsington Resevoir, Dovedale, Bradford Dale, Mill Dale, and Lathkill Dale. Although there may be slopes at times, it would not involve anything too strenuous.
