About our Home

Our lovely threshing barn dates back to c1690 using oak timbers from a 15th century ship in its beams. It has been renovated to the highest specification & includes spacious lounge, boutique bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen, sumptuous sheets & towels etc for fellow 'swapees' to enjoy.... We are committed to the environment as we have ground source heating, a biodigester and even our own water supply - straight from the famous Buxton mineral water aquifer. No nasty chemicals, delicious!
There is great flexibility with this swap in so much as Gorsey Hayes (6 person) is set within the 12 acre grounds of our farmhouse, together with our other luxury 4* gold holiday let of Handel's Muse (2/3 person). Check for further info.
