About Us

We can’t wait to welcome you to Manor House Farm Cottages!  We moved to this stunning location from Nottingham, where we had lived for 26 years and happily raised our children.  It’s safe to say that a move to a sheep farm in the Peak District was a massive change for us!  We’d always dreamt of moving to Derbyshire for its beautiful countryside and walking, and it has definitely lived up to our expectations.  

Manor House Farm Cottages

When we arrived, Manor House Farm consisted of the farmhouse, a range of old stone barns, two agricultural barns and 50 acres of land.  With no farming background at all, we had to learn a lot, quickly.  But we rose to the challenge and we now have a flock of 140 sheep, including 6 charming Southdowns and 8 beautiful Jacobs, which have just lambed for the first time. 

Our plans from the outset were to convert the courtyard of stone barns into luxury holiday accommodation that we could manage from our doorstep.  We began a loving and sensitive programme of restoration, retaining as much of the character of the original buildings as possible, yet still providing modern luxury. We have been open for visitors since April 2019 and we can’t wait to give these barns a new lease of life.  We love our surroundings so much and want to share the beauty of the Peak District with others. 

If you would like to make a booking, please contact us – we’d be thrilled to hear from you!
