Farmhouse in Fritchley, Nr.Matlock Derbyshire, England - Walk And Cyle Direct From The House, Or 5 Mins Drive To Matlock

Ideally located for easy access from the M1 and the Peak District National Park. Church Farm provides on the doorstep countryside, great for walking, cycling, mountain-biking and general enjoyment of the peak district. Enjoy a stroll down the Cromford Canal and the rolling hills around Crick and South Wing field. Take a Day trip to visit Chastworth House or experience the attractions and history of Matlock and Matlock Bath. The property has had a full renovation and in its 3rd year of operating as a holiday cottage, and has improved year on year.

About David Bacon

Church Farm is a family owned house, run by David Bacon. The property was the family home for over 30 years is now used a a holiday home. We live only 30 mins away, and are always on hand to help guests with anything our guests might need.

Why David Bacon chose Amber Valley

THe house was our family home in Fritchely, and we have renovated this property and decided to let the farm house out for holiday accomodation due to its location next to the peak district yet still having great access from the M1.

What makes this farmhouse unique

What makes Church Farm different is the amout of space provided for guests, while still having many origional features. the property has a fully equiped kitchen, and provide direct access to teh countryside right from the door.

Fabulous Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Church Farm was fabulous from start to finish. The Farmhouse catered for us all - 3 couples, one with a baby and a dog. The kitchen and dining area were a pleasure to cook and dine in and the 2 lounges were brilliant as we all didn't want to watch the same thing on TV in the evening or some of us just wanted quiet time. The family bathroom is amazing - the large shower and roll top bath with awesome views across the Peak. We had fab hot weather during our stay so we made a lot of use of the back garden and patio.

David and the guy living next door could not have been more helpful.

Thankyou again!
