Farbrook Cottages - Dog friendly cottage in Buxton, Derbyshire
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 lovliest barn to self-catering accommodation and Overbrook Barn is the result. Overbrook Barn sleeps 8 in four double rooms: it's very comfortable, cosy, and has modern equipment throughout.
We have young children ourselves, and yours are very welcome. None of our livestock pose any danger to humans, Overbrook Barn has its own gated garden, 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.
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. There's a huge amount to do locally, along with great eating and drinking.
I do hope you'd like to come and share our life on the farm for a little while and that these pages will help show you what we have to offer. If there's anything you'd like to know do get in touch with me.
Built later than the farmhouse, Overbrook Barn dates back to the early nineteenth century. A traditional pink gritstone building it was a livestock shippon with a hayloft, and was in agricultural use until early 2009 when we started converting it. Now we hope you'll find Overbrook Barn is a delightful and cosy place to spend a holiday in our spectacular countryside.
Overbrook has its own long driveway which ends with parking for at least four cars immediately outside your gate.
Recently converted, like the farmhouse the style is clean, modern and cosy rather than rustic. The living room, dining room, and kitchen are on the ground floor in a single open-plan space with three beautiful picture-window views over the farm. There's a log burning stove, Sky TV, BluRay DVD, and a music system. The main bedroom with super-king double bed and ensuite is off this room. The ensuite has lavatory, hand basin, shower, and towel radiator.
Upstairs are the other three bedrooms and the bathroom. The upstairs bedrooms all have twin beds but these can be made into super-king doubles if you prefer. The bathroom has a bath with shower-over, lavatory, basin, and towel radiator. All bedrooms have TV/DVD, natural fibre carpet, duvets with cotton sheets and covers (bed linen and towels are provided).
The kitchen is fully equipped with all the essentials you'll need for adventurous cooking for a full house! It includes Neff oven, microwave, and ceramic hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, and washer/dryer, along with the usual range of kitchen equipment: food processor, toaster, kettle, etc..
Oil-fired central heating keeps the barn deliciously warm 24 hours a day, Overbrook has its own phone which you're welcome to use, and there's free wireless broadband internet throughout.
Overbrook has a gated and lit garden which is secure for small children. There's a barbeque area with seating for eight, and we can arrange a hot tub rental if you'd like. Well behaved pets are welcome and there's plenty of room for off-the-lead walking on the farm. There's bags of room to smoke on the farm but please don't smoke inside. The farm is your playground: treat it as if you owned the place!
