Farbrook Farm, Quarnford, BUXTON, Derbyshire, SK17 0ST

Hi, I'm Gemma. Simon and I have been living at Farbrook Farm since 2000. Farbrook is a beautiful 18th century farm sitting in a quiet valley in the south west corner of the Peak District National Park on the edge of the village of Flash, the highest village in Britain.

Farbrook is a working farm where we breed excellent quality alpacas for the fine fibre industry. We decided to convert our loveliest barn to self-catering accommodation and Overbrook Barn is the result.  Overbrook Barn sleeps 8 in four double rooms.

We have young children ourselves, and yours are very welcome. None of our livestock pose any risk to humans, both Overbrook Barn and The Farmhouse have their own gated gardens, the farm is secure, and our access road is very quiet. We also have chickens, ducks, sheep, and often pigs: a paradise for city children! We have an enthusiastic and friendly black lab so we're very pet friendly and your well behaved pets are most welcome.

Dog Walking
We're in the centre of a network of footpaths and bridleways that offer some of the best walking and riding you'll find in the country, all of which is dog-friendly, and there’s plenty of room on the farm for off-the-lead running around. There's a trekking centre in the village so you can enjoy all this on four legs if you prefer.

There's a huge amount to do locally, along with great eating and drinking.

Why not get involved in some local country life: watch milking, visit farm shops and the mushroom farm, or try your hand at some alpaca husbandry? Or you could sign up for one of the Peak District's specialist taster courses in dry stone walling, eco-building with timber and straw, or stonemasonry.

Some of England's best loved country houses are on the doorstep. A visit to Chatsworth House and gardens, the water staircase, maze, and a picnic by the river, finishing off in the spectacular adventure playground if you've got children with you, makes for a truly glorious day out.

For more structured entertainment Buxton Opera House has great family productions as well as higher-brow opera and ballet, the local 'classic' cinema screens exclusively new releases, and Alton Towers is a short drive away. The various caves in Buxton and the Hope valley provide a fascinating insight into these natural and man-made caverns and are always popular with the children.

I do hope you'd like to come and share our life on the farm for a little while: check our website for more of what we have to offer. If there's anything you'd like to know do get in touch with me.
