Cruck Barn Cottage

UK England East Midlands Derbyshire

Max and Susan Fischer have been making people happy for decades; Max is chef patron/owner of the renowned Fischer's at Baslow Hall where you can enjoy Michelin-star food. Now they've spread their skill set to this lovely one-bedroomed 'cottage' in nearby Barlow. Some cottage. It looks pretty standard from the outside (stone built, slate roof), but step into a jaw-dropping open plan ground floor, the double-height living-space revealing the original cruck barn structure. The extraordinarily comfortable queen size bed sits loftily on the mezzanine floor, the beams above your head. The sleek, grey slate floored kitchen has every gadget you could possibly need, and a handsome Scandinavian wood stove ensures toasty toes in the winter. Talking of which, there's the luxury of underfloor heating throughout. Don't panic if you arrive too late to catch the shops; a thoughtfully huge welcome hamper includes homemade cake, jam and local eggs, ground coffee and organic juice. At the end of a day spent tramping the hills relax with a glass of fizz and watch the sun go down on the west-facing terrace. You have to go a long way to find a place as comfortably chilled as this.
