About the property

Cottage in the grounds of Biggin Grange, Biggin-by-Hartington, Peak District

Biggin Grange is a private family home with 3 barn conversions in the grounds which have been sympathetically and very individually restored. The nearby village of Biggin has a pub and country house hotel and Hartington offers 2 village shops, pub, hotel, garage and traditional cheese shop. The Tissington trail is very close for walking and cycling and it is possible to walk over the owners land to Biggin Dale which leads to the River Dove. All 3 cottages can be booked together if wished to sleep 6 as Courtyard Creamery has a dining area which can accommodate all the guests.

The cottage is entered through a private garden which leads to the south facing patio. The flag-stoned open-plan sitting room/kitchen area with exposed beams has a wood-burning stove and a basket of logs, coal and kindling is included. There is a TV, DVD player and CD/Radio/iPod docking station. The kitchen is well equipped with an electric oven and hob, Nespresso coffee machine, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Walk through the kitchen and up 2 steps and the huge bedroom (6m square) has a king-size 4-poster bed with goose down duvet and 100% cotton linen. TV in the bedroom. The ensuite bathroom has a bath, separate shower, hand basin & loo. Plenty of secure storage for bikes. The tennis court is available throughout the year. A central laundry room has a washing machine, tumble dryer and ironing board and there is also a pay-phone. The cottage is heated by oil-fired central heating. Free Wi-Fi. All towels are provided.

About Jane Henry

Biggin Grange is owned by Richard & Jane Henry and we moved up to Derbyshire in 1993 from London. We bought Biggin Grange in 2000 and have extensively restored the house, outbuildings and farm. It is a fabulous home to bring up our 3 children and we are surrounded by over 100 acres of fields. Our black Labrador, Otto, together with ponies, a donkey called Guinness, chickens and ducks have plenty of space to amuse themselves. The property is steeped in history as the Garendon Abbey in Leicestershire owned the Grange and it dates back to 1209. It is Grade II listed and there are many significant archaeological features on the property. We rent the land to a neighbouring farmer who has beef cattle and sheep over the fields. We adore this stunning area and hope you do too!

Jane Henry purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Jane Henry chose Derbyshire Dales

Biggin Grange is a perfect place to visit as it is surrounded by acres of land with amazing views so you really get a feeling of being away from it all. But at the same time it is really convenient being close to Ashbourne and the nearby villages of Biggin and Hartington. London is only 1 hr 30 mins away on the train from Derby and Manchester is 1 hr drive away.

Living within the Peak District National Park is incredibly special and it is only when we have been away do we fully appreciate the unspoilt beauty of Derbyshire.

Lovely cottage in great position for exploring the river Dove.

  • 4 of 5

Although the cottage was apart of the grange and around other cottages, the farrows was tucked away and felt very private. Lovely surroundings

This was a short stay for a bit of R&R. It was a lovely setting and the cottage was cosy. Just right

  • 4 of 5

The stay was most enjoyable and enabled us to take in the surrounding countryside and to walk. Having the log burner made the cottage homely and welcoming. All facilities were of an excellent standard. We loved the chocolate Brownies....thankyou.

Cosy yet luxurious

  • 5 of 5

Superb holiday accommodation - worth every penny. The bedroom in particular is great - absolutely huge. The wood burner in the lounge area is perfect for keeping warm on a cold winter evening. The location is excellent - lovely walks on the doorstep, and Hartington, which has a great pub and a couple of shops, is just a couple of miles away.

Peaceful luxury with beautiful views of Derbyshire countryside.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Old Farrowings. The place has been very tastefully converted with the highest level of decor. Especially liked the tiles in the bathroom and the spacious bedroom with the high ceiling. The whole site is incredibly well maintained, clean and tidy. We only had a couple of days unfortunately but managed to pack in a few activities : cycling, walking and eating at the local pub. The location is excellent with the Tissington trail and the village of Hartington a short distance away and a very good pub only 15 mins walk across fields. Jane was extremely helpful and has thought of everything you could possibly need. Brownies were delicious too - thank you!
