Brooklyn Barn is perfect. Everything we could possibly need and more.

J&G, Wheathampstead


Brooklyn Barn is an idyllic retreat. We feel rested and relaxed after our stay in this beautiful place.

Brooklyn Barn was just right. Immaculate and lots of special touches (flowers, cake, milk, tea, coffee etc). A perfect base for exploring.

We have loved staying at Brooklyn Barn. Thank you for the flowers and provisions! We have stayed in a lot of holiday cottages etc but this one was just perfect, so well equipped and comfortable. We enjoyed bacon etc from the lovely butchers and had a very nice meal at the Jinnie Inn. We visited the lovely little city of Lichfield and the moving National Memorial Arboretum, also had a healthy walk at Dovedale and Carsington Water to walk off the weekend's calories!! Thanks for everything.

We oldies have had a lot of self catering holidays but can honestly say this is the best barn ever - 5 star in every way. Thank you Ruth & David for the welcome and looking after us during the week.

A&D, Tyne and Wear


Beautiful cottage, beautiful village, excellent pubs and butchers! The cottage is perfectly located for many of the sights and attractions of Staffordshire and Derbyshire. The bed is insanely comfortable and the 42" TV is brilliant! We both enjoyed the stay very much. Thank you!

An amazing barn, so peaceful and relaxing. Such a nice place to start our married life together. Perfect and would recommend to family and friends. Thank you for everything.

S&V, Derbyshire


Very high quality accommodation.

S&P, Cumbria


An accommodation that exceeded our expectations. Found there to be a great sense of community to which we were made very welcome wherever we went. A huge thank you to David and Ruth for the welcome gesture of cake, flowers and milk on arrival. Would love to return to Brooklyn Barn and Rolleston on Dove.

J&C, Poynton


We came to relax and unwind and that's exactly what we did. So peaceful, the cottage has everything and the bed is really comfy. We have sat in the garden most mornings listening to the birds whilst having breakfast. The butchers is great and everyone we've met in the village is really friendly. Loved the walks and the Jinnie pub!

D&J, Walsall


A lovely place for our family - very secure for our toddler and baby. Great for all the National Trust places we could visit nearby. Had everything we needed. Thank you!



We were both desperately in need of de-stressing. Now we're so chilled we don't want to go home! To be woken by bird song and not car engines starting - bliss! Thanks very much.
