View our policies hereWe moved into Orchard Farm in January 2015 and are approaching the end of our second year here welcoming great guests to the barns. I was born in Derbyshire, Robert a little further south, and had been looking for some time for a house in the beautiful Peak District. We were delighted when the opportunity to buy Orchard Farm came up and feel privileged to be living in such a beautiful part of England. We are both keen on walking and most Sunday’s we will be taking in the delights of the countryside around Derbyshire and Staffordshire. I am Chair of the Derby and South Derbyshire Ramblers and very keen to promote walking for all ages and abilities. When you come to stay with us there will always be organised walks for you to undertake if you wanted to or information to wander yourselves. Just one of the activities that is on offer in the Peak District.
We continue to operate the much loved holiday accommodation that John and Marion created in the way that it has always been. One of the things we most love is meeting people who want to come and share a bit of pleasure we are providing in the quiet and beautiful peak district.
On September 16th of this year we married in Parwich Church. Following the ceremony we celebrated at Tissington Hall with all our family and friends. We are now settling into married life, Robert is getting used to having a ready made family of 2 children and 3 grandchildren. They all love our new lifestyle and think it is great to come and share the house and village life.
Tom’s Barn and Douglas’s Barn are members of Friends of the Peak. We have added an option to the booking form to donate a £1 to support the Peak Pound Partnership and we have placed collecting tins in the barns for guests to donate small change. All these donations will help to safeguard the landscapes of Britain’s first and most beautiful national park.

It has been really hot here as it has in most parts of the country. We are getting ready for Open Gardens next Sunday, 25 June 2017. The rose above the stone barn has prolific blooms that we are hoping will still be there at the end of the week. Lots of hot air balloons […]
Chatsworth House played host to RHS flower show for the 1st time this year. The setting is delightful and the show gardens all very natural which is lovely to see in this Peak District setting. Peak District Premier Cottages contributed to the sponsorship of the Experience Peak District garden which won a Silver Gilt medal. […]
