Breathing new life into Further Harrop

Further Harrop Farm 

Standing proud for over 300 years on the edge of the Peak District

The Project

 When we first viewed Further Harrop back in 2012 we drove down a rather bumpy stone lane – unlike the long smooth tarmac drive it is today – we knew instantly that this was where we wanted to settle and bring our family up.

Since then we have lovingly restored, refurbished and developed Further Harrop with very few breaks in-between. We have thought of every little detail and developed the property to the highest of standards. It is so rewarding to be able to share the results of our hard work with others and the joy and healing qualities of this magical location.

The Present

The farmhouse is a Derbyshire long-house and dates back over 300 years. During the first 3 years of our ownership we developed the main house into our much loved family home as well as developing the equestrian facilities to enable us to share our passion for horses from our home.

The holiday cottages and lower barn are the latest phase of our development.

Extensive works having been carried out in stages to convert what were once traditional stone barns into the stunning living space it is today all the while maintaining the overall look and feel of the original buildings.


Most recently we have developed the outdoor spaces around the properties to make the most of the magnificent views and allow time to switch off from the noise of life and appreciate the healing powers of just being outdoors surround by nature. Our project for 2023 has been to create an orchard area which we also hope to plant with wildflower this summer. We have also built a feature greenhouse with raised beds that welcomes you upon arrival and provides another beautiful spot to sit out.

The Future

We’ve had a fantastic first 3 years welcoming guests and met some lovely people along the way and it will be our privilege to welcome many more in the future to share with you our little piece of heaven.

In this ever changing world with its fast pace of life, Further Harrop really does seem to stand still, blocking out so much of the hustle and bustle of our world that gets faster and faster.

I first met the Horne family about 14 years ago and started out working for them by helping with their competition ponies. This included travelling all over the country to major competitions and I have so many fond memories of the fun and success we had as a team with the whole family!

I have always remained a close friend of the family and have the greatest admiration for all they’ve achieved. Further Harrop is a credit to their hard work and drive and Sara’s incredible eye for detail. The renovations have been executed to the highest standard and the place is truly breathtaking and immaculate.

After a break in 2019 to have my own little boy it’s been a privilege to be able to get involved with this new business venture and help with the launch and management of the holiday cottages ever since.

If you have any questions at all please get in touch as I am always happy to help and enhance your experience in any way I can.
