About the Owner

Our family have lived and worked on our small hill farm for 3 generations, we cannot imagine living anywhere else, the peace, tranquillity and the wonderful views are second to non. The cottages were a dream come true. After converting the barn and welcoming our first guests in 2000 many have become good friends and return year after year to see our hills and dales in all their seasons colours and moods. We live in the farmhouse just 100 yards away and can always be on hand to help and advise if needed. We look after the cottages ourselves to meet the very high standards of cleanliness and comfort. I keep a small variety of chickens near the cottage to lay eggs for family and guests and they are available to you, fresh each morning in season.

Location

From the Owner

Our farm and Monks Retreat cottages are in a truly rural setting but not isolated. Situated on a south facing hillside overlooking Monks Dale and Millers Dale nature reserves with fantastic and extensive views. A short stroll down a leafy lane brings you to the old pub, nestling beside the sparkling and tumbling river, with log fires and serving real ale and food. We are 2 miles from the quaint old market town of Tideswell, home to the famous 'Cathedral of the Peak'. Here are small family businesses of butcher, baker, greengrocer, a minimarket and numerous tea shops.
