Further Harrop Farm & Cottages

Somewhere Rather Special....

As soon as you drive through the entrance to Further Harrop Farm and Cottages you start to relax and marvel
at the breathtaking views. We have two self-catering cottages in the Peak District, situated in the stunning Harrop Valley. Popular with cyclists, walkers and those wishing to get away from the strains and stresses of life – you will do well to find a more idyllic location.

Our Properties

An idyllic base on the edge of the Peak District.

Further Harrop provides the perfect backdrop for getting away from it all. Set in 70 acres of rolling Peak District countryside with woods adorned with bluebells and daffodils in the spring and streams constantly flowing with water off the hills.

Nestled into the side of the Valley and south facing, the sun pirouettes around the property from first thing in the morning until it slowly disappears over the hill in the evening.  

The principal farmhouse is our family home which we share with our 3 children and our 3 very friendly dogs.  We also have 2 farm cats who live in the stable yard alongside our daughter’s competition horses. 

Pedigree sheep, ewes and their lambs at foot are dotted around the farm adding to the ambience of the place. 

It’s the perfect location to enjoy the countryside and unwind, yet has lots of points of interest to suit all.

Boasting walks in every direction with a direct link to the Gritstone Trail linking up to Lyme Park, there are routes to suit all levels. Cyclists have the famous Bakestonedale Road ‘Brickworks’ climb, part of the Tour de Britain – which the British Cycling Team regularly train on – literally on the doorstep.

All of this is just the tip of the iceberg with what this very special location and these luxury premises have to offer.


A relaxing environment to getaway from it all.

Lovingly and thoughtfully executed, this stunning barn conversion has been fitted and furnished to the highest standard – whilst in keeping with the beautiful countryside that surrounds it.

Providing accommodation for up to 5 adults in ‘The cottage’ and 2 adults in ‘The Nook’ which can be booked individually or in combination providing flexibility for our guests.

    Fabulous cottage set in a great location

    Fabulous cottage, spotlessly clean. Set in a great location. The Peak National Park and High Peak have some great walks, and there is good choice of restaurants nearby. Nothing was too much trouble for Sara the host,  she will definitely be seeing more of me in the future.

    Many thanks.

    Lived up to our expectations & more!

    Wow what a place, would highly recommend! Lived up to our expections and more!! Every detail thought of and absolutely immaculate! Sara was the perfect host and we felt so relaxed and refreshed after a very stressful year! Although we decided to eat in there were lots of nearby pubs and shops and we can recommend the local bakery and butcher in Bollington. Would definitely love to return!

    A beautiful, luxury cottage perfect for walkers and cyclists.

    My partner and I stayed for 5 nights at the cottage. It is the most beautiful location perfect for anyone who loves walking or cycling. The cottage was immaculately presented with everything you need for your stay. The owners were very friendly and helpful with a great recommendation for Sunday lunch. We can’t wait to come back and stay again and we would highly recommend this place to others.

    Just the break we needed

    The Nook is a lovely newly renovated barn conversion. Everything is clean and in good condition just as the photos show. It is just the right size for two people. The location is great for some peace and quite and relax time out in the wild. The owners are very welcoming and friendly and the farm is lovely. Lots of easy walks direct from the grounds or within a few miles from the property so you dont need to drive far to make the most of this area. We would stay again.

    A warm fire and comfy beds

    Our stay at the Cottage provided the perfect Peak District holiday. The cottage was lovely and finished to such a high standard. Views of the beautiful landscape from all the windows, a warm fire and comfy beds. The location couldn’t have been better if you’re looking for walks right on your doorstep. Hosts were wonderful too and couldn’t have been more helpful.

    A wonderful place to stay and unwind

    This is a wonderful place to stay and unwind. The comfortable lay out ensures spaces to read, to gather, to relax. We were looking for somewhere to ‘call home’ after weeks on the road and touring Scotland. This location was everything we needed. The appliances were all quality, the bedrooms were sumptuous, the whole cottage was immaculately clean and the spaces were comfortable and spacious. The countryside vistas were glorious and open, the sheep were friendly and the host’s doggies very welcoming.
