Peak District Holiday Barn

What: The Peak District Holiday Barn is exactly that – a large (but wonderfully cosy) self catering holiday barn. There is lots of room for guests to stay over and plenty of socialising space!

Where: The Peak District Holiday Barn is near to Tideswell in the heart of the Derbyshire Peak District. A great base for the adventurers among you.

Weddings: Not yet licenced for civil ceremonies, but a perfect place for pre and post wedding celebrations. Lots of ‘weddingy’ space – a lawned garden (ideal for a marquee), a BBQ area and even an outdoor pizza oven (yum!).  The friendly folk next door also offer their camping facilities for extra guests.

From May 2018 there will be a dedicated wedding barn for 120 guests as well as a games room and facilities. We’re also very excited about the new wood burning Scandinavian hot tub for guests to use!

Who: The lovely Amanda and Mark will help to make sure that you have everything you need for your intimate wedding. You can get in touch by calling Amanda on 07525 051226 or mark on 07791667027, or email
