Situated in the historic Hope Valley of Edale, which lies between the gritstone of the peat-topped Kinder moors to the north, and the cave-riddled limestone of the White Peak to the south.
The Edale Valley is a beautiful, deep valley, surrounded by a ring of soaring gritstone hills and open heather moorland.
This National Trust house is located in a very remote spot in Edale Valley. There are no public roads and only one building nearby so it is a lovely secluded and isolated place to stay. Perfect for a little R&R!
A stream runs past the back and sheep graze in the adjacent fields. The views are stunning all around and show the Dark Peak at its very best.
Just 30 miles from Sheffield, 40 miles from Manchester with trains from London to Sheffield taking just 2 hours. Transfers from Sheffield, Edale and Hope stations are included, just let us know if you need picking up!
There are plenty of amazing skateparks less than half hour by car, making our venue a well connected yet totally secluded getaway.
The renovated gritstone farmhouse at the remote head of Edale is totally ours to chill in over the week and offers plenty of space to relax. A comfortable, warm accommodation with many original features, including rustic exposed beams and low doorways. There’s even a payphone for when your phone signal drops out.
The large lounge is heated by a log burner and boasts 3 comfy sofas, whilst the dining room houses a table large enough to seat all of us, and will host our fully vegan breakfasts and dinners. It also has large french doors which can be opened up to lead out into the beautiful garden.

Disabled Facilities: Due to the nature of the building the downstairs accommodation is on different levels and all sleeping accommodation is upstairs. Therefore access is challenging and we strongly recommend discussing any access requirement needs with us prior to booking.
Outdoor Facilities: There is a garden area to rear with picnic tables and a BBQ. A stream runs past the back of the cottage and sheep graze all around in the adjacent field.
Parking: There is ample parking and turning space. The roads are narrow so large vans will have difficulty making it fully to the retreat.

Smoking: No smoking is allowed anywhere in the farmhouse, but you can just pop outside
