About David Bacon

Church Farm is a family owned house, run by David and Denise Bacon. The property was the family home for over 30 years is now used as a holiday home. We live only 30 mins away, and are always on hand to help guests with anything they might need. As a small family business it is really important to us that all our guests have a great holiday at Church Farm.

Why David Bacon chose Derbyshire

The house was our family home in the small village of Fritchley, and we have renovated this property and decided to let the farmhouse out for holiday accommodation due to its location on the edge of the peak district and other local attractions, yet still having great access from the M1. As our once family home it is really important to us that our guests have a very enjoyable stay in Church Farm.

What makes this farmhouse unique

What makes Church Farm special is the amount of space provided for guests and beautiful rural views across the Derbyshire countryside from the rear garden, which also offers a BBQ and patio furniture for al fresco dining. Whilst still having many of its original features. the property has modern conveniences, extremely comfortable beds, a fully equipped kitchen, and provides direct access to the wonderful countryside and so many interesting places to visit, right from the front door.

Fabulous Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Church Farm was fabulous from start to finish. The Farmhouse catered for us all - 3 couples, one with a baby and a dog. The kitchen and dining area were a pleasure to cook and dine in and the 2 lounges were brilliant as we all didn't want to watch the same thing on TV in the evening or some of us just wanted quiet time. The family bathroom is amazing - the large shower and roll top bath with awesome views across the Peak. We had fab hot weather during our stay so we made a lot of use of the back garden and patio.

David and the guy living next door could not have been more helpful.

Thankyou again!
