Join us in one of the highest inhabited farmhouses in the Peak District! Perfectly placed to explore the High Peak and Derbyshire and benefiting from wonderful uninterrupted panoramic views over Kinder Scout, Eccles Pike, South Head and Cracken Edge.
Our location is a complete one-off... Our family home is an eighteenth-century farmhouse, renovated throughout, enjoying truly panoramic views across the High Peak - you're so high up you can watch the weather come and go!
This listing is for one of our King-Sized Double Rooms (with memory foam mattress). Check out our other listings for our second King-Sized Double Room, Single Room and Twin Room.
There are tea and coffee making facilities available upstairs for your use. There's also a Drawing Room (with musical instruments) and a TV Lounge for your enjoyment.
Our home is the perfect spot for walkers, potholers, climbers and mountain-bikers or if you just want to explore the coffee shops and stately homes of the Peak District.
We have a Drawing Room with a Baby Grand Piano and (as I'm a retired opera singer) heaps of weird and wonderful opera recordings to listen to or watch! There are wood-burning stoves in the Drawing Room and TV room and underfloor heating throughout the house in case the weather turns colder. Despite our two reception rooms, we find (like at most good parties...!) most guests congregate in the farmhouse kitchen which is kept cozy by our four-oven Aga. There's extensive onsite car-parking and also a large barn onsite for storing bicycles etc.
Interaction with guests
We're a young couple (gulp - in our fifties!) and we have various young adult children who are occasionally around - and our pets (cat, rabbit, budgie and fish). We're happy for you to come and go as you please. We'll be about during your stay and we are happy to sit and chat or leave you to your own devices as preferred. Your breakfast is included in the price.
Other things to note
During the winter months when there's snow forecast in the area (always check-able online at buxtonweather), access can sometimes prove interesting!!; we have a suitably equipped 4x4 that can usually get through most conditions. The entire property has underfloor heating.
We welcome bed-and-breakfast guests into our home. Please leave muddy boots and outside coats in the side porch - clean shoes on stone floors - slippers everywhere else.
Our home is NO SMOKING throughout, but we don't mind you heading outside to take in the view whilst you smoke.
We have our own animals and other local livestock so we're sorry, but we cannot accommodate pets.
Please note that that guests are not allowed to store, prepare or cook food in our kitchen. We do not offer "whole house" rental.
