About Sally Hibbert
We have slowly and lovingly restored the family farm back to life - it has taken over ten years, but we have almost finished. We are incredibly proud to have achieved a Five Star Gold Award, and a Breakfast Award for the Bed and Breakfast accommodation which has now been running for over 5 years. We have a wonderful flow of returning guests. Some say its the cooking, others come to admire the views of a working farm, especially during the summer months at harvest time. We are really thrilled with The Duck House conversion, and there is already a list of guests forming who would like to move into it permanently! The Old Tea Room is a superbly appointed wooden cottage conversion which is tucked away from the main farmhouse but sits on the edge of the garden allowing visitors to have that extra bit of privacy. Both properties can be rented out together for larger groups and we can also offer room only in the B&B if that extra bed is needed and the barns are full!
Why Sally Hibbert chose South Derbyshire District
The farm was inherited over fifteen years ago, and we are the fourth generation to live here. Originally it was one of the biggest dairy farms in Derbyshire. Now however, it is run as an arable farm. The farm is easily located and because we are so central, you can get to various parts of the country really easily which also means you can have a touch of the rural qualities without being off the beaten track. Very accessible to the M1 and M6, and yet you can be in the Peak District within 10 minutes drive.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Incredibly private accommodation and not overlooked at all. The property offers open field views and there is a small enclosed verandah with tables and chairs for guests to use. The lake during the summer months is wonderful, and offers some superb coarse fishing, or if you are feeling a little more keen, open water swimming is allowed. The lake is only a very short walk away from the cottage - literally 100 metres. There is also a lockable shed for bicycles and fishing equipment. The verandah is dog proof and has a gated entrance onto it. The garden is also fenced with a gated entrance onto the cottage driveway.

Amazing accomodation, amazing hospitality, amazing breakfast... just AMAZING!
We stayed at The Lavender Patch after a day at Alton Towers. On arrival at around 5pm we were greeted warmly by Sally (and some very cute bantam chickens) who was a fantastic host throughout. She showed us around and made us tea and scones which was the perfect way to start our stay (we are very foodie with sweet teeth!). The photos do not do justice to this fantastic accommodation. The lounge was huge, with an amazing fireplace and log burner, comfy sofas and a dining table where breakfast is served for you. The bedroom was massive (even the super king bed was dwarfed), with beautiful oak beams, and the bathroom with roll top bath and walk in shower (both of which we used) was lovely, clean and well provisioned. Our breakfast selection was comprehensive (we chose Greek yoghurt with fresh fruit, followed by poached eggs and bacon on muffins) and so fresh and delicious. Would thoroughly recommend a stay here for anyone in the area, and thank Sally wholeheartedly for her warmth and hospitality throughout our stay. Worth every penny and more!
Thanks so much Rob for your kind words and a fabulous review. It's so lovely to hear you both enjoyed your stay with us and thrilled you were delighted with the accommodation. Do hope you managed to get a walk in on the way home without getting too wet. Best wishes to you both.

Wonderful accommodation fantastic hosts. We'll be back!

There is a fairly decent bus service V1 that stops almost at the bottom of the farm drive every hour. It is recommended that guests have use of a car.
