What a beautiful place. Very tranquil.

A lovely barn conversion. Gorgeous furnishings and well kept. Everything you should need was there. It is secluded and quiet.

It was lovely for our two dogs too.

A wonderful stay. X

We visited Grey Roofs in November 2021.

We were on the lookout for a dog friendly holiday cottage, and are so happy we stumbled across Grey Roofs. A real home-from-home, we could not ask for more from this lovely barn conversion. Attached to Calwich abbey down a secluded track, it's perfect if you're looking for a peaceful location - there's also a very good pub a short walk or drive away which is handy!

The accommodation is extremely dog-friendly, and our two dogs thoroughly enjoyed their holiday too! The accommodation is very secure, with its own courtyard where the dogs could run around - there was also a dog kennel if you wanted to go out and leave them at the accommodation.

Inside, the accommodation didn't disappoint. It was very clean and luxurious. We especially enjoyed having the woodburner lit in the evenings. The kitchen was lovely and to say it's 'fully equiped' is an understatement - it has literally everything you could need!

Dean (the owner) who lives in the barn next door was extremely welcoming and happy to answer any questions and offer help if needed.

We have already recommended Grey Roofs to so many people, and we cannot wait to return.

We have stayed at Grey Roofs a number of times, and it never fails to impress. The owner is always extremely helpful if we ever have any queries, and he is extremely welcoming.

The cottage itself is very well furnished, they have put a lot of effort into making it a very cosy, clean cottage. During these current times you are always thinking in the back of your mind 'Is this clean enough'? Never once did that question come to my mind, or any of the families mind during our stay. We felt very safe.

Finally, the surrounding area is absolutely beautiful, so peaceful. Located a mile or 2 down a farm track, in the middle of no where (you still get very good WiFi). Loads of nice little walks to take your family/pet on.

Overall, Grey Roofs is one of the best we've ever stayed at, we've stayed atleast 3 times and it certainly won't be the last.

10/10 on everything, would recommend to anyone.

My second stay at Grey Roofs and once again it was brilliant. Very well furnished and extremely comfortable beds with plenty of kitchen equipment to manage self-catering if eating out isn't an option at the moment. Perfect for dog walking in the adjoining fields and a good location for exploring Derbyshire and Staffordshire. Dean the owner is very helpful and pleasant.

Just got back from a lovely stay at Grey Roofs. The place is a decent size, very clean and pretty much has everything you need in the kitchen department! We had an issue with one of our dogs (nothing to do with the place, an ongoing illness) and Dean helped us with vets numbers and giving us some special food to try and get the dog to eat. He was lovely and really went out of his way to help. We was welcomed with a lovely hamper with everything for a full English and all nice and fresh and locally sourced, it even had some treats in for the dogs! You have ab

Grey roofs was a lovely place to visit for a week in August. It's set off the beaten track a little, so not easy to find. I called the owner for directions, however due to its remoteness, I had no reception (more on this later), so eventually lost him and found my own way there. After 15mins of driving back and forth I found the place and settled in nicely. Great base for visiting local attractions. Had trouble understanding the heating instructions (Not very helpful) so called the owner from the landline for advice.

Several weeks later I received a WhatsApp

We had a wonderful stay at Grey Roofs. My mum, myself and my dog. The property is not the most obvious to find, sat nav takes you down the wrong drive about 1 min away, so perhaps a sign pointing you in the right direction from the main road entrance would be helpful. We kind of stumbled upon it really, but the owner lives so close if you do miss it and phone him, he will come and guide you in so not a major issue. Grey Roofs was everything we wanted for our weeks stay in the Peak District. We arrived to a wonderful unexpected hamper with enough in it f

We have just got back after a week at the Grey Roofs cottage which is only a few miles from Ashbourne.The accommodation certainly lived up to the pictures and more.It is down a long lane which makes it very private and beautifully quiet, which we love. The whole cottage has been kitted out very tastefully and is very clean. The under floor heating was amazing and kept us incredibly warm and cosy to the extent that we didn't even need to light the woodburner. It is also a great dog friendly place with a brilliant fully enclosed courtyard, so no need to worry
