Great week celebrating a few birthdays! Fantastic old farm house in a fantastic rural location. We found the owners extremely helpful and genuinely nice people - and it was a great welcome pack! 10 adults and 8 young kids accommodated very easily. Very private despite being close to another excellent property next door owned by the same people. My father requires being moved around in a wheel chair, although there are a few steps this was not an issue at all. Excellent property for a large group wanting a rural retreat!

This delightful large Grade II listed detached farmhouse is set in a courtyard, near the owners' own home, on a non-working farm, in its own lovely garden and is surrounded by pretty Derbyshire countryside.
With a choice of entry, either directly into the dining room, complete with open fire, or through the conservatory, either way will take you through to the lovely farmhouse kitchen with an electric AGA which is on at all times to keep the cold at bay.
The sitting room is very cosy, seating ten people and boasts a stone fireplace with woodburning stove, the conservatory also seats ten, giving a choice of which view to enjoy!
On the ground floor there are two king-size double bedrooms, including one that's a four poster, and also on this floor is a shower room, just off the kitchen.
Upstairs are five further bedrooms, all with their own identity and style, including another four poster king-size double bedroom.
The garden of Lowfields Farmhouse is lovely, and leads directly into fifteen acres of land, with footpaths aplenty to explore.
Relax in the orchard, taking in the stunning, uninterrupted views or enjoy a spot of birdwatching during the day.
At night, the minimal light pollution allows for excellent stargazing opportunities, whilst enjoying a glass of wine and discussing your plans for the next day.
The farmhouse is situated on the edge of the village of Middleton-by-Youlgreave where you can discover wild Britain, close to the lovely little market town of Bakewell, with its wonderful choice of shops and eateries and traditional Monday market.
Don't forget to visit Chatsworth and Haddon Hall, both within walking distance from Lowfields Farm - if you feel energetic!

About the location
Bakewell 5 miles.
Middleton-by-Youlgreave is a small, quiet and secluded village situated in lovely rolling countryside above the River Bradford. The village centre consists of an old square and a village green with a Second World War memorial. Its slightly larger neighbour, Youlgreave, is a pretty village with traditional old pubs and village stores, and was once the centre of the Derbyshire lead-mining industry. Nearby, Bakewell is an attractive old market town, extremely popular with visitors and offering a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as a frequent local market and farmers' market. The area is situated within the Peak District National Park and ideally placed for both walkers and cyclists exploring this beautiful region, as the Tissington Trail and Monsal Trail run nearby. Alton Towers, Britain's premier theme park, is only a short drive away and there are many stately homes to visit - Chatsworth, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall, to mention but a few.
Note: Max. 18 guests in total, including infants.
