2 award winning Eco barn conversions on the family farm in a quiet location, on the edge of the Peak District National Park, by Tittesworth Reservoir. Both properties have been inspected by VisitEngland's accommodation grading scheme and have been awarded 4 stars as well as a coveted Gold award.

Fully renovated by the owners with care and attention to detail, Troutsdale Farm offers quality accommodation of real character and charm and seamlessly combines all the old original features to still give a 'barn feel' with modern design and home comforts that make them ideal for family get-togethers.

There are well equipped kitchens, hand crafted from oak with double belfast sinks, and with large dining tables (seating 6 and 10). Both have spacious sitting areas with Clearview log burning stoves, flat screen TV and DVD player. There are en suites in both properties and exposed original beams, stone and brickwork and solid oak flooring on the 1st and 2nd floors. There is off road car parking and an enclosed garden area, ideal for sitting out and barbecues. There are 4 herb borders from which guests can enjoy and pick their own herbs. Doorstep footpaths lead to a circular nature trail.

In November 2011 we won the 'Most Eco-friendly Holiday Let' category in the 'Fields of Opportunity' national competition and then went on to become the overall winner out of all 5 categories.

The greener features of the barn are carefully incorporated so that you hardly know they are there and require no expertise or knowledge. Central heating comes from the ground source heat pump and solar panels. Rainwater harvesting system works for all grey water. Timbers replaced in the conversions were cut from local woods, and we have planted 20 acres of new woodland. The traditional lime plastered walls are painted in Earthbourne natural clay paint, the windows are all made from wood and painted with organic linseed oil paints, sheeps wool insulation is used throughout the building, and natural clay aggregate forms the floor insulation in the limestone floor.
