With Buildings dating back to the 1500's, Barn Farm is a traditional Derbyshire gritstone stock farm, in one of the prettiest villages in the Peak District. Overlooking the beautiful Derwent Valley, the farm is a haven for wildlife including badgers and rare Black Fallow deer. It boasts over 60 species of birds such as Nuthatch, Dippers and Peregrine Falcons.
Located 3 miles south of the historic market town of Bakewell and three miles west of Matlock, Barn Farm is ideally situated to access the diverse array of local attractions.
It borders the mystical Stanton Moor with its Victorian stone carvings and ancient Nine Ladies stone circle. Robin Hoods Stride and other bouldering and climbing areas are nearby and the area is excellent for walking with the Limestone Way long distance path passing close by.
