About Us

We have lived here on this lovely upland farm since the 'sixties' at first renovating the farm house and keeping abreast of the farming activities then gradually developing farm buildings into holiday accommodation and managing the land under Countryside Stewardship schemes and now the Higher Level Environmental Scheme.

ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY is being acheived with an increase in wild life, with dragon flies, butterflies, birds and plant species. We have our Environmental Quality Mark from the Peak District National Park.

Wild life is returning with mixed hedgerows and new plantations, where orchids now thrive in spring.

View our extensive gardens and each cottage has gardens or terrace to view bird life.

Carr Wood (opposite) is a very special ancient woodland where bluebells, honeysuckle, marsh marigolds, violets and wild garlic thrive. Follow the woodland trail and maybe a fox will run across your path. An area of woodland craft and coppicing is well worth a visit.

Half a mile down stream from Carr Wood, Overdale brook feeds a trout lake, which we keep stocked with trout where guests can try their hand at informal fishing and teach their children. See dragon flies here and badgers abound.

A network of farm walks link all these areas and there are quiet sheltered corners in the gardens to sit and relax.  

Another activity we offer is tennis. Our hard tennis court, recently re-conditioned is in a superb setting, where we once trained ponies on a fibre ménage!  

We hope you enjoy this beautiful corner of Derbyshire as we do and feel revived and relaxed after your stay here !
