Dramatic scenery, historic buildings and cutting-edge sustainability combine to make this farm a memorable year-round holiday destination. Set in a peaceful and secluded location close to Buxton and Bakewell, the farm occupies a stunning position in one of the Peak District’s most breathtaking valleys.
From the outside it looks like a typical Peak District farm, sitting in 12 acres of pastureland at the foot of the National Trust-owned High Wheeldon. But the weathered limestone walls conceal the latest in green building technology, earning the holiday cottages a Peak District Environmental Quality Mark alongside its Green Tourism Business Scheme accreditation. An ambitious scheme agreed with the National Park has transformed the site. Ground floors are now warmed by under floor heating, with radiators upstairs. Kitchens have been updated and new bathrooms installed, along with new furniture and low-energy light-fittings throughout. Walls and roofs and have been fitted with high levels of insulation, but the most radical transformation lies under the adjacent field. Ground Source Heat Pumps – utilising hundreds of metres of buried pipes to collect solar energy stored in the ground – supply the cottages with domestic hot water and heat.
So while on the surface little has changed, the farm now combines the character of a traditional Peak District property with the comfort of modern building standards – perfect for couples, families and large or small groups seeking lazy summer strolls or bracing winter walks. Join Deborah and Martin for a holiday to remember!
