"A pastoral Idyll in the Peak District"

"We have stayed at Gateham Grange something like twenty times over the last fifteen years both in the Coach House and in Gateham Cottage. The accommodation looks beautiful and has always been very welcoming and comfortable but the real attraction that has brought us back year after year has been the location. Gateham Grange itself, although very much a working farm, is quite unspoilt and idyllic and you can set off in any direction for a day of perfect walking in the Peak District with the Manifold valley less than two miles to the west and the Dove only a mile or so eastwards. The owners are friendly, approachable and extremely helpful without being intrusive and our daughters have loved feeding their lambs"

Alstonefield Camping Barn at the foot of Narrowdale Hill

Alstonefield Camping Barn

Sleeping 1 to 12 persons

You can camp all year round in our traditional barn, with cosy wood burning stove.

Our Barn stands at the foot of Narrowdale hill just outside the village of Alstonefield and is part of our 200 acre sheep and beef farm.  Reached by an old bridle path which has been upgraded to allow access to the barn where car parking spaces are provided.  Unique basic budget holiday costing only 8 per person per night.  Suited to Campers and people wanting to get away from it all.  Good as a teambuilding venue and children's parties and sleepovers (large empty upstairs room). 

With truly outstanding views and dale walks in all directions our barn is a most excellent base for walkers, cyclists, scouts, Duke of Edinburgh and school groups etc; as well as small numbers of individuals.

Gateham Grange - a holiday destination for all seasons

 

 
 

Peak District Farm Holiday for all seasons

 
   

Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter there is so much to see and do on your doorstep - you just cant beat the location.  On the farm we have lambing in the Spring, followed by cows calving, then there's sheep shearing, haymaking and silaging.   Along with their parents children are welcome to help bottle feed young lambs, help feed and water the expectant mothers and collect eggs for breakfast in the morning if the hens are laying.  Certain times of the  year are busier than others on the farm so what there is to see can vary, please feel free to enquire when booking your holiday.

Nearby is the unspoilt Manifold Valley - take a short walk from Wetton Mill to Thors Cave. Great childrens' play area, along with water sports at Carsington Water.  Walk from the cottage door down to Narrowdale or enjoy picturesque Dovedale. 

Ideally situated for visiting many historic houses including Chatsworth, Tissington Hall, Haddon Hall and Sudbury Hall and Museum of Childhood. The Manifold cycle trail is just down the road.  The Spa town of Buxton with Pavilion Gardens and Opera House, the  Heights of Abraham with cable car at Matlock and the UK's number 1 theme park Alton Towers are all close by.
With quaint market towns and farmers' markets there's something for everyone.
