Yew Tree Farm is surrounded by glorious countryside in Tansley, with many footpaths right from the door, some of which take you past a couple of those all-important village pubs!

Tansley is just outside the historic town of Matlock and the quirky ‘seaside’ town of Matlock Bath, famous for their independent shops, riverside walks and even a boating lake in Matlock. There are many tourist attractions in the area; don’t miss a trip to the Heights of Abraham where you can enjoy a ride in the cable cars, taking in the breath-taking views this area has to offer, or a visit to the Crich Tramway Village, where you can explore the National Tram Museum and a recreated olde-worlde town complete with working trams.

You’re also within easy reach of the ancient market town of Bakewell famed for its array of shops and eateries, and the elegant spa town of Buxton with beautiful Georgian architecture and Opera House. For those wishing to explore the country estates, why not take a trip to nearby Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall, steeped in history with more glorious parkland and gardens to explore.

Please note, well behaved dogs are welcome by prior arrangement.

Yew Tree Farm currently operates a minimum 4 night stay policy.
