Fan­tas­tic loca­tion and water­side views with lots to do locally

A care­ful­ly con­vert­ed Der­byshire stone barn offer­ing unique accom­mo­da­tion set on the banks of pic­turesque Cars­ing­ton Water. The Croft enjoys peace and tran­quil­i­ty being sit­u­at­ed on a qui­et no through road which forms part of the 8 mile cir­cu­lar lake­side walk/​cycle ride.
