Barn (ish), Holloway, Derbyshire

Couldn't make my mind up about this one at first, but then I thought: What the heck: it's a cute wreck in lovely location. Just a bit pricey for holiday home do-up.
Anyhoo.. Brewell's Barn is a stone-built, clay-tile roof, one-up-one-down former stable in the village of Holloway in the rural Amber Valley area of Derbyshire. The two 'rooms' are roughly 10 feet square and there are no services (including sewage or water) to the building. It comes with planning permission for conversion to a holiday cottage, a quote for connecting water services, reports and plans - including a structural report. You'll want to read everything if you're interested in this property.
It also comes with around an acre of rather lovely sloping woodland.
It's on the market through Scargill Mann at offers over £65k. More details here.
If dinky rural retreat is your thing, Bury & Hilton is offering the imp-sized brick building below at just under £25k. It's near Alstonefield, in Hopedale, within the Peak District National Park, on a site of around 855 sqyds. Details here.
