Morridge View at Lane Head Barns is an accessible five bedroom barn conversion in the Peak District National Park. One double bedroom is on the ground floor, has a roll-in wet room, and has been used very successfully by many wheelchair users. The spacious wet room has grab rails and adapted fittings and there is a free-standing shower chair and toilet frame available. Morridge View sleeps 10 in total plus 2 babies and there are excellent facilities including 4 bath / shower rooms, well equipped kitchen, 55″ smart TV, log-burner, large dining table and plenty of comfy chairs / sofas.
There is level access to Morridge View from the car park area with hard surface immediately next to Morridge View. Throughout the open plan ground floor there is level oak flooring and the level terrace at the rear with views across rural landscapes is accessed via a ramp.
Morridge View works exceptionally well for groups of family and friends getting together for a reunion or to celebrate a special event. The accessible features mean that if one member of the group is a wheelchair user or prefers not to have to manage stairs they can be join in with the get-together like everyone else.
Also at Lane Head Barns and adjacent to Morridge View is Mixon View which sleeps 2 plus baby in one upstairs bedroom. Mixon View is not suitable for wheelchair users or the less able. However, for a group of 12 the two properties can be booked together with a discount and Mixon View works as a great bolt-hole for those who need to find there own space for a little peace and quiet.
Lane Head Barns is in the south west area of the Peak District which is a quiet area with stunning landscapes. The whole Lane Head site is peaceful and secluded so ideal for those who need a calm, quiet environment to relax in. The traditional market town of Leek is just 5 miles away and has plenty of independent shops as well as several supermarkets. Well known Peak District towns such as Bakewell, Buxton and Ashbourne are around half an hours drive away and slightly further afield is the Chatsworth estate which is loved by many of our guests and has good facilities for those with access needs.
The Peak District is the second most visited National Park in the world. It’s famous for its peaks, moorland, dales, woodland, pretty villages and waterways that provide stunning landscapes to explore. But these attractions can seem daunting to those with access needs. Fortunately, we have a wonderful organisation, Accessible Derbyshire, that works across the whole of the Peak District to support better access to bring together all the information you need to get out and about in Derbyshire and the Peak District.
Owners Kate and Paul Beresford live on site in the farmhouse so are usually available should there be any queries during your stay. Kate has completed ‘Accessibility Champion’ training with Visit Peak District and works hard to ensure access needs are met.
We don’t accept pets but we are very pleased to welcome working guide dogs.
