Church Farm's Dovedale Cottages offer two Gold Award winning self-catering cottages


Church Farm's Dovedale Cottages offer two gold award winning self-catering cottages nestling in the grounds of our organic farm in the tranquil and peaceful setting of Dovedale in the Peak District. A great deal of conservation has been practised here with our Grade II listed buildings tastefully refurbished to retain much of their original character.

Church Farm Cottage is a delightful pretty country cottage, full of character and charm with beamed ceilings, richly coloured rugs and a cosy open fire to warm your toes. It has a gorgeous cottage garden with wonderful rambles from door to dales.

Our luxurious 5-star Grade II listed Ancestral Barn has splendid canopy beds, all ensuite bathrooms (one with roll top bath to soak in) and idyllic and peaceful setting with wonderful views down Halldale. It is cosy and warm with an open fire to snooze by after those walks from door to Dovedale!
