Ridgehead Farm Cottages were created in 2008 by converting a 200 year old historic barn into 2 luxury cottages, they are both rated at the top end of 4 star by the tourist board. Set at 1500ft on a 80 acre equine farm within a site of Special Scientific Interest, they offer stunning views and year round peace and tranquillity yet are conveniently located for local amenities and exploring the Peak District. Each cottage has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and sleeps 4 so are perfect for families or couples, the 2 cottages can be booked together (10% discount) to sleep 8. With underfloor heating downstairs and in all bathrooms they provide a warm, cosy retreat at the end of the day.
Ridgehead Farm originally formed part of the Harper-Crewe Estate but then fell derelict, the main buildings were rebuilt some 25 years ago. In 2008 an historic barn on the farm was painstakingly converted by us into two luxury holiday cottages.
I have lived at the farm for 16 years with my husband Clive and our 13 year old daughter Lucy and a variety of pets.
I have had a lifelong love of horses which has been passed onto Lucy, we both regularly compete at local and regional competitions, consequently the equine facilities at the farm have been vastly improved.
We live in the main farmhouse approx 100m from the cottages and are there to offer you a warm welcome on arrival and available to offer local advice and answer any queries during your stay.
I don't think I have ever seen so may stars in the sky, it really felt as though we were on top of the world. Thank you Clive and Jo for providing this better than, home-from-home.

We had a fantastic weekend at the cottage. The views are simply stunning. The cottage is very well done out and easily fits four adults.
We definitely plan to visit again!
Great views and a really well equipped cottage. Very clean and fantastic for the dogs. Very close to lots of fab walks.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Beautiful cottage so warm and welcoming to return to after spending our days walking.
Very well equipped and lovely helpful owners. Great base for exploring the area
We have just spent a week exploring and walking in the beautiful Dales with our young labrador. Coming back each evening to the lovely, warm, comfortable and well equipped cottage was just perfect for us all. Highly recommended property.
