New Hanson Grange is a farm tucked away above the beautiful hamlet of Milldale, close to the picture-perfect valley of Dovedale. Within the grounds of this working farm you’ll find a country-style bungalow, ideal for families, and two delightful Shepherd’s Huts, perfect for romantic getaways. It’s the perfect base from which to explore this stunning part of the Peak District – when it’s safe for you to return.
In this article the owners tell us all about life on the farm and how it carries on regardless of the Coronavirus crisis, albeit in a much quieter way than usual…
Stay Home | Stay Well | Stay Soon
Like most businesses in these unprecedented times, we are unable to welcome visitors to stay on our farm at New Hanson Grange at the moment. Sadly, they are missing out on such a lot, as Spring is always a very special time to be on a Peak District hill farm.
Life and work on the farm still carries on as it did before coronavirus turned everyone’s lives upside down.
Tim & I have been self- isolating in the lambing shed at New Hanson Grange for the past few weeks and we now have some lovely lambs frolicking in the sunshine. A welcome sight to see on the farm after such a long and wet winter!
Spring is truly upon us now, with wild flowers starting to unfold, bumble bees buzzing, birds actively building their nests, trees budding & butterflies emerging, something to put a smile on our faces in such difficult times.
The farm is really coming alive, but it has never been so close to nature and so unbelievably quiet. The footpaths which radiate in all directions on the farm have not been trodden for a couple of weeks, which seems such a long time, but not in reality. No walkers, day trippers, holiday makers, family or friends to share in the natural beauty of the dales.
We hope very soon we can welcome everyone back to see for themselves what a wonderful part of the world we live in!
In the meantime, a very Happy Easter from us to all of Ewe!
