The Old Post Office Barn

Local Area

The Old Post Office Barn is located in Upper Hulme, in the Peak District National Park, between Buxton and Leek. Only a mile behind the Barn stands the superb Roaches gritstone outcrop now managed by the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, popular with climbers and walkers alike. The local pub, Ye Olde Rock Inn, great for meals, bar snacks and real ales is only a few yards down the lane from the Barn. Upper Hulme is a quiet hamlet, close to Tittesworth Reservoir, with its walks, fishing and a visitor centre, and only 20 minutes drive from Blackbrook RSPB reserve. The spa town of Buxton is 8 miles away, the market town of Leek 4 miles away, both providing all shops, amenities and public transport.

Explore the stunning Roaches and the wider Peak District from the door of this simple, cosy stone converted cottage in Upper Hulme near Leek.

The Old Post Office Barn is a cosy, detached cottage for up to three people (and one well behaved dog welcome) that we restored from an 18th century stone barn belonging to the neighbouring Old Post Office. With stunning views of the Staffordshire Peak District countryside, you can also see the now famous Hencloud (meaning Old Hill) on the skyline beyond. This simple, warm accommodation provides a ground floor living area with a kitchen area, sofa and an area to sit and eat, all with beautiful views of the outside seating area & countryside beyond. Upstairs there is one large double room with day bed with the same beautiful views and a shower room.

The Old Post Office Barn is an ideal base for exploring the Peak District with stunning walks from the door, easy access to world famous Roaches and Tittesworth reservoir or when staying with friends and family locally. Run by Sheila and Barry who live in The Old Post Office itself next door & both keen climbers and walkers, they are happy to help you plan walks, days out and activities in the surrounding area. Short breaks are available.
