Farbrook was built in the 18th century and is a working alpaca breeding farm in a beautiful, quiet valley in the Peak District National Park. There are two properties available on the farm, both of which have been completely renovated to be modern, bright, cosy and warm. All bedrooms have super-king double beds (which can be made up as twins if you prefer) with natural fibre duvets, cotton sheets and covers. All bed linen and towels are provided.

Your children are very welcome, as are your well behaved pets. All our livestock are safe, and the gated gardens are secure. Regularly on the farm are alpacas, sheep, chickens, and ducks: great excitement for city children! The farm has its own driveway: we're well away from our very quiet single lane access road so there's no traffic to worry about.

Many guests visit us just to enjoy life on the farm but there's loads else to do. Countryside enjoyment starts on your doorstep: we're in the middle of the Peak District which has some of the best walking, riding, and cycling in the country. There's a trekking centre in the village so you can enjoy the same on four legs. Get involved in some local country life: come and meet some alpacas, or why not take one of the Peak District's specialist courses in dry stone walling, eco-building, or stonemasonry?

Many of England's best country houses are in or surrounding the Peak District. Chatsworth House and its gardens and adventure playground make a fabulous day out, also Haddon Hall close by. Lyme Park (the setting of Colin Firth's Darcy's meeting of Elizabeth in Pride and Prejudice) is a magnificent, Grade I listed, 16th century mansion surrounded by formal gardens and a deer park. Buxton's Opera House has great family productions, as well as opera and ballet, Macclesfield has a 'classic' cinema which has all the new releases. Alton Towers is 30 minute drive away.
