Bank House Farm

Biggin 1 mile. A pair of beautifully-converted barns, set around the courtyard of a working livestock farm near the villages of Biggin and Newhaven between Buxton and Ashbourne. These Newhaven cottages have been sympathetically converted to retain some lovely features, including the large window which was the main barn door, and beams throughout. Prettily decorated and comfortably furnished to a high standard, and offering direct access to the garden complete with duck pond, these pretty Newhaven cottages have a real feeling of character. The open plan living areas of these Newhaven cottages feature well-equipped kitchens, comfortable sitting areas and dining areas leading to the pretty shared garden. This outside space is perfect to take in some wonderful Derbyshire views, and offers picnic tables to enjoy some lunch in peace and quiet in the Peak District countryside. The Tissington Trail is a stone's throw away from these Newhaven cottages, and wonderful walking on offer in Dovedale is not far. Discover some of the pretty villages in Derbyshire including Hartington to sample some cheese and browse antiques. Visit Ashbourne, Buxton with its fabulous architecture and, of course, Alton Towers Theme Park is within very easy reach. These Newhaven cottages really are a great base to enjoy the Peak District for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday at any time of the year.

Biggin is close to a national nature reserve, the wonderful National Trust owned Dovedale and the Tissington Trail, with excellent access for all for walking and cycling. The well known village of Hartington is close by, offering a wider selection of shops and amenities, including the world famous cheese shop selling the delicious Dovedale Blue.
