Luxury five bedroom holiday cottage

Morridge View Holiday Cottage

 

Morridge View was the first barn to be converted at Lane Head Barns. This stone built former cow barn (or ‘shippon’) overlooks traditional farmland to Morridge – a stunning ridge, rising to 1500 ft above sea level with views across the Peak District National Park to the east and to the Welsh hills in the west.

‘Wow’ that’s the reaction from pretty much everybody when they walk in the door of Morridge View. This luxury self-catering holiday cottage sleeps 10 plus 2 infants in five double / twin bedrooms. Three bedrooms have en-suite facilities with one being on the ground floor. The ground floor bedroom is suitable for the less able. Two first floor bedrooms can be set up with either a king-size double or two singles to provide flexibility for mixed groups.

 

Family gatherings, reunions, birthday parties

 

Morridge View provides excellent group accommodation that works incredibly well for multi-generation family gatherings, reunions of friends, celebrations and special occasions. The large level open plan living area means that while some may be chatting in the kitchen, others can sit around the oak dining table and still more may watch TV or relax by the log burner – but everyone is together in one accessible social space.

 

Accessible holidays at Morridge View

 

If one or two members of the party can’t manage steps and stairs or there is a wheelchair user in the group Morridge View provides an excellent holiday location. There is a ground floor double bedroom with en-suite wetroom with adapted fittings. The whole of the downstairs is level and there is level access from the car parking area at the front and ramped access to the terrace at the rear.
