About the property

Three bedrooms, all with mountain views. Main bathroom plus en-suite.

Harold's Farm is located on the side of Kinder Scout in the Peak District National Park. It faces south with long range views of the Kinder valley. The farmhouse has recently undergone a major refurbishment but retains many original features including exposed oak beams and original stone flag floors. There are log burning stoves and underfloor heating, two bathrooms with under-tile heating and a clean and practical kitchen. There are many walking and cycling trails and Hayfield village (location for the BBC series 'The Village') is nearby with several pubs, small shops and cafes. Please note that parking is limited to 2 cars - Harold's Farm is not suitable for large gatherings or parties.

About Michael Whyatt

I was born in the Kinder valley and bought Hill House Farm many years ago as a long term project.

Michael Whyatt purchased this farmhouse in 1995

Why Michael Whyatt chose High Peak District

It is a truly unspoilt example of a traditional long Derbyshire hill farm. The location is about as good as you will find anywhere in the Peak District.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Location and accessibility to Peak District walks on Kinder Scout and the surrounding hills.

A perfect place to have family together from Scotland, London and Manchester to celebrate two birthdays and our first grandchild. The house was warm and well equipped and our family party felt like we were at home. The owner was friendly and very helpful as soon as we arrived and we felt welcome immediately. Walking from the house was easily accomplished and the views superb. All in all everyone thoroughly enjoyed the visit and came away refreshed and revitalised!

Harold's Farm Holiday Rental Property

  • 5 of 5

We found Harold's Farm to be a superb holiday rental property, ideally located for the north Peak District. The farmhouse was extremely comfortable and very well appointed; a real home-from-home. The owner provided clear information, both before and during our stay and we really enjoyed the peaceful environment. Hayfield village has excellent pubs and restaurants. We cannot recommend Harold's Farm highly enough and hope to return soon.
