Dukes Barn is a group accommodation base and can accommodate a maximum of 46 people, normally slightly less dependent on male/female mix.

It has a games room with pool table, table tennis, table football and a large meeting room with TV/DVD if desired. The simple dining room, with modern kitchen adjacent can accommodate approximately 50 people.

The indoor clean up area with sinks, washing machine, tumble drier and modern drying room with de-humidifier mean that large groups can get waterproofs, boots etc cleaned and dried out overnight if needed.

Within the grounds we have a field and all weather surface suitable for 5 a side football, basket ball or similar games.

For activity courses we have an indoor climbing wall and a ropes course The less energetic will enjoy the orchard or a short stroll around the village. There is also a small sensory garden where you can sit for a quiet cup of tea or to enjoy the sun.

Situated within the beautiful village of Beeley, on the edge of the Chatsworth Estate, Dukes Barn is an ideal location for short local riverside strolls or longer walks taking in near by moorland and dales.
