Macclesfield Barn Rental Photos and Description

Alpaca breeding farm in Quarnford, Nr. Buxton, Peak District, UK - At the centre of the country's best known walking, riding and cycling trails, pub minutes away

Farbrook is a beautiful 18th century farm nestling in a quiet valley in the south west corner of the Peak District National Park. Our long driveway leads to a bridleway on the famous Three Shires Head network providing some of the most spectacular walking and riding in the country. Farbrook is a working farm where we breed excellent quality alpacas for the fine fibre industry, we're surrounded by fields of these beautiful and inquisitive creatures and you're welcome to walk among them. Also on-farm are sheep, chickens, ducks, geese, and sometimes pigs: a paradise for city children.

About Gemma Toia

Hi, I'm Gemma. Simon and I have been living in this gorgeous part of the Peak District since 2000. Farbrook is a working farm where we breed excellent quality alpacas for the fine fibre industry. We decided to convert our loveliest barn to self-catering accommodation and Overbrook Barn is the result. Overbrook sleeps eight in four double rooms, it's very comfortable, cosy, and has modern equipment throughout. We're in the centre of a network of footpaths and bridleways that offer some of the best walking and riding you'll find in the country. There's a huge amount to do locally, along with great eating and drinking.

I do hope you'd like to come and share our life on the farm, if there's anything you'd like to know do get in touch with me.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"What a beautiful place! My family and I have been staying in holiday cottages for over 25 years and we caretake three of our own so our expectations are high. This barn is excellent, so warm, comfortable, and the kitchen is a pleasure to use. Hope to return!" "Fantastic accommodation! Beautiful location. Friendly and helpful people. Thoughtful personal welcome." "Thank you so much for all you did to make feel so welcome. We've had a wonderful time - comfortable barn, fantastic walks, beautiful scenery!"

Travel:

The nearest airport is Manchester International (one hour by car): good services to London, Europe, USA, and the Middle and Far East. East Midlands Airport is just over an hour away. Macclesfield station (20 minutes drive) is on the London-Manchester main line (London 1hr 40mins). Buxton station (10 minutes by taxi) is at the end of a local line from Blackpool and Manchester. Avis have a car rental office at Macclesfield station. Enterprise Car Hire operate a local pick-up service.

Distances:

Flash village and pub: half a mile. Buxton 5 miles. Macclesfield 9 miles.

Further Details:

While many people visit us just to enjoy life on the farm there is also an enormous amount to do locally. Countryside enjoyment starts with some of the best walking and cycling in the country on a network of bridleways and footpaths which start on the doorstep. There's a trekking centre in Flash so you can enjoy the same on four legs. The less experienced can sign up to a week's course of riding lessons at the local school. Get involved in local farm life: watch milking, visit farm shops and the mushroom farm, or try your hand at some alpaca husbandry. This is great badger country: in the evening there's nothing so exciting as watching the dusk exodus of tens of badgers off on their nocturnal rounds. We're surrounded by some of England's most beautiful and exciting country houses. Chatsworth, Haddon Hall, Little Moreton Hall, Biddulph Grange, Gawesworth Hall, Capesthorne Hall, Tatton Park, and Lyme Park are all within 20 to 40 minutes drive. Many have spectacular gardens and children's playgrounds. Chatsworth has an outstanding adventure playground. Buxton Opera House has a 7-day programme of family entertainment as well as some opera. Clonter Opera (the Glyndebourne of the north) is about 30 minutes drive and they will cater for your interval dining if you don't want to take your own picnic. Macclesfield has a great 'classic' cinema. Alton Towers (rides and theme park) is 30 minutes away.

Macclesfield was the centre of silk production in the 18th century. Many of the mill buildings are still standing and there are several museums covering this great part of our history. Buxton (10 minutes drive) is a spa town and was built by the Romans, there is lots to see here including some fine Georgian architecture. It's our nearest town and probably has all you'll need. Good restaurants including Italian, Indian, Chinese, Pizza Express, and an excellent Thai. Good parks and playgrounds. There are Waitrose, Morrisons, and Aldi, supermarkets.
