Fernyford Barn is a luxury, fully equipped self-catering accommodation set on a working farm and run by our family. We did our best to make sure that our holiday cottage is a perfect blend of modern facilities and good old country comfort and cosiness. Fernyford Barn is a delightful property with stone floor downstairs and solid oak flooring on the first floor, exposed oak and stone lintels giving warmth and character. There is under-floor heating downstairs and in the bathroom. Recently gaining Four Stars and a Gold Award from Quality in Tourism, it has an open plan living room with fire place (electric stove) and 50' TV, fully-equipped kitchen, double bedroom with 5ft bed and second bedroom with two single beds. Sleeps 4 (+1). The property has its own patio area to sit out and enjoy the ...Fernyford Barn is a luxury, fully equipped self-catering accommodation set on a working farm and run by our family.

Sleeps 4 (+1). The property has its own patio area to sit out and enjoy the peaceful location. Fernyford Barn is ideal for couples and families. A warm welcome for babies and children. It is the ideal accommodation for a relaxing country holiday - set in the glorious Peak District countryside. Perfect for walking, cycling, bird watching and the many attractions of the Peak District including Bakewell, Buxton, Chatsworth House and Alton Towers. Fernyford is a great place to get a feel of what life is like on a working farm. The farm enterprises consist of a herd of 20 Belted Galloway cows with followers and a flock of 200 Swaledale ewes with the emphasis being the production of top quality breeding stock. We also have some free-range chickens, two friendly Collie dogs Liz and Skye and Sparkle, the cat. The latest news: We have become the proud owners of 'the world's cutest sheep” - the first VALAIS BLACKNOSE SHEEP in Middle England here at Fernyford Farm, in the heart of Peak District! More

How to get there
We would recommend approaching from Longnor, Warslow or the A53 (which is the Leek to Buxton road), or through the village of Thorncliffe. Do not rely 100% on sat nav. It will take you to Frost Lane (and then Little Fernyford Farm) which is half a mile north of our driveway. Please note that Fernyford Barn is situated at Big Fernyford Farm, and not Little Fernyford, which is quite close geographically, but accessed by a different road.
