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.

There is still time to book a last minute Christmas get away in Douglas’s Barn. The weather may be cold but the barn is very warm and cosy. Why not treat yourselves to a get away from it all break. You can order all your supplies from one of the supermarkets, get it delivered and […]
Time to get a bit of relaxation before the Christmas mayhem. There are still short breaks available in Douglas’s Barn. Plenty going on in the Peak District. Lots of Christmas markets selling lovely gifts that you don’t see elsewhere. Chatsworth House is also a must at this time of year. There are plenty of stories […]
Lots of events to go to in and around Parwich today but managed to get to the Horticultural Show in Parwich and the Hartington Show. Missed out on the Antiques in Ashbourne though which is always worth going to. Izzy did better than me by getting 1st prize as the Prettiest Bitch at Hartington Show […]
