We were looking for somewhere with walking on the doorstep and this could be achieved from here. Teggs Nose Country Park was behind the farm and easily accessible, from there the walking possibilities were endless. Further afield you have the High peaks and the Cat and Fiddle pass which offered an array of walking for all abilities.
The farm is quiet with cats wandering around and chickens next to the flats, the light pollution was minimal and the night sky was visible quite easily. there is a business and a couple of other properties on the site so please consider this.
The flat is well appointed and the description doesn't really allude to the fact that you don't need to take tea towels, cleaning stuff, dish tabs, tea, coffee, oil and the usual provisions that someone you find you have to take with you. There was also fresh milk and eggs on arrival.
The flats are quite cosy and the kitchen living area a little cramped, the furniture is comfortable and there is a wood burner for the cold nights but the heating was so hot it wasn't needed. Wood is available for free and there is a laundry room but I wasn't shown where it was and there was no indication either as to its whereabouts. The welcome book is quite informative about the local area and expectations of you as a guest, they flat owners are very keen for guests to adhere to their Eco Ethos and recycle and not to use any harmful chemicals. The bathroom was a good size and there was an ante room where you can store your shoes, coats and outdoor gear.
Superfast broadband and a phone accepting incoming calls
communication was good, well appointed, reasonably clean but with an open fire, in a barn it was quite dusty with spiders webs in places and in my personal opinion could have been cleaner. I would recommend this apartment and is priced about right.
location: About 6 mins drive from macclesfield or 20 mins from Buxton.
