About the property

The Coach House at Gateham Grange is a converted barn on our working farm nr. Dovedale. The Manifold Cycle Trail is just down the road. Peaceful, dale walks. Stands next to the quaint old stone dovecote. Sleeps 2-6 persons in a double and family room. Having a toilet on both levels this barn suits guests with limited mobility as well as families. Spacious kitchen and comfortable lounge with large patio windows which catch the sun.

Gateham Grange nestles at the foot of Wetton Hill and is between Alstonefield, Wetton and Hulme End (each about 1.5 miles away), all having lovely pubs serving good food.

Being located on the Derbyshire/Staffordshire border the list of nearby attractions is endless! Busy Hartington, historic Chatsworth and thrill seeking Alton Towers are close by. There's rock climbing at the Roaches, water sports at Carsington Water and nearby fishing, golf and horseriding.

During your stay challenge yourself to climb to the top of Wetton Hill. Standing at 1300ft above sea level you will be rewarded with a panoramic view of the Peak District in all its glory.

This cottage was a cosy well equipped home from home for us when exploring this lovely area. We were lucky to have lovely sunny weather so we were out every day, but the cottage would be great to stay in all day too with plenty of books, dvds and games. We loved our stay and enjoyed looking out of the kitchen window at chickens or sheep wandering past! Teresa msde us very welcome. Thanks!

Charming Peak District farmhouse with welcoming hosts

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 nights total in England starting the weekend at this lovely farm and finishing in London.

We arrived here late in the evening and were excited to find a plate of cookies and farm-fresh eggs on the table. I was the first to wake in the morning and was excited to see a handful of sheep sleeping in their pasture about 6 feet from the kitchen window. It was an awesome sight!

We spent two nights here and 3 children ages 13 to 7 thoroughly enjoyed the time spent in the sheep barn holding baby lambs, feeding the chickens, gathering eggs, feeding their bull Hagrid and the fresh country air. My two sons and I climbed the large, steep hill that is a few hundred yards away and the views were incredible!

One thing that is not specific to the house, but more to the area is that restaurant reservations are a must and most stopped serving food around 8:00/8:30pm.

Last, but not least, our hosts were very welcoming and made us feel at home. Our biggest regret was that we couldn't stay longer!

Lovely farm stay in stunning location.

  • 5 of 5

We were not in the cottage long as we were out walking all day. The location is great for a activity holiday in the Peak District. Very friendly owner. Nice and clean, cozy cottage. We would have liked to have stayed longer.

Beautiful, lovely spot in the middle of sheeps

  • 4 of 5

This property has everything you need. It has a beautiful sight on a big green hill. You can visit the farm with its sheep, cows, hens and cocks. The farmer is very willing to show it to children. There is no Wifi and barely any Internet which really brings you to rest, but for us a reason to give it four instead of five stars.

The owners of the house are very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay.
