About Burrs Farm

Burrs Farm is the antidote to boring family get-togethers, and the answer to your prayers if you have to organise a holiday for a large group of people who all want something different from their time away. The luxurious farmhouse sits within three private acres of pristine Peak District countryside, remote from other people yet within walking distance of the Church Inn pub in Chelmorton and a five-minute drive from the award-winning Royal Oak. It is also close to great attractions like Bakewell, Buxton and Chatsworth House.

Chelmorton is a lovely village so typical of the Peak District National Park, with limestone walls and stunning scenery. Being one the highest villages in England means it benefits from amazing views, including of the White Peak. There is a quirky stone telephone box in the village, but the main attraction is the countryside and the walking trails in the area. Buxton is five miles from Burrs Farm, which is an easy fifteen minute drive or a pleasant cycle. It is a fantastic place with beautiful buildings that reflect its popularity as a Georgian spa town. The best way to see its fabulous architecture is by following the circular walk that takes you through the Pavilion Gardens and Opera House and past the Victorian letterbox.

Bakewell is smaller than Buxton but still great for shopping, especially if you want to sample the local Bakewell tart at its source. It is nine miles or a twenty minute drive from Burrs Farm, and has a fantastic array of pubs and restaurants if you want a night off cooking. The town has held a regular market since 1330, and you can shop there on Monday from early morning until around 3pm. Matlock, Ashbourne, Derby, Macclesfield and Sheffield are all other excellent places to visit for a day out if you like shopping or need a good wet-weather destination.

As luxurious and stylish as Burrs Farm is, it pales in comparison to Chatsworth House. The beauty of the Grade I listed “house” is breathtaking, as are the gardens and parkland. It offers a full day out with a small farmyard and playground for the kids, superb places to eat, stunning collections of art and furniture, and a gift shop that leaves others in the shade. If Chatsworth doesn’t make you want to re-read Pride and Prejudice, nothing will!

There are a wealth of footpaths, bridleways, and mountain bike trails, including the famous Monsal Trail, nearby, as well as National Trust properties and country houses, shops, restaurants and family-run country pubs serving exceptional food and local ale. Burrs Farm sleeps up to twenty people in seven magnificently appointed bedrooms and, with features like a hot tub, Footgolf course, and an enormous country kitchen with a range cooker, it will make you feel like you’re on the set of a shoot for Tatler magazine.

Location (The Peak District)

Burrs Farm is finished to the highest standard with top quality fixtures and furnishings. Great care has been taken to make you feel as if you are the most important guests in the world, and personal requirements can be discussed at the time of booking to make sure everything is perfect.

Accommodation Comprises:

Ground Floor:

  • Even the fussiest guest will be impressed when they walk through the front door into an entrance hall which, although large, still feels warm and welcoming.
  • The main lounge is off the hall, leading guests into a room furnished with deep sofas arranged around the log burning stove.
  • There is a second sitting room with a feature fireplace, pool table, games and television with satellite channels. It is particularly popular with children and teenagers. This room also has a double sofa bed.
  • A dining room has a large table that comfortably seats sixteen people, with a further table that can be added for another four guests. It is elegant enough to make celebration meals feel special, but the room's light neutral décor and warm wood floor let guests feel relaxed enough for conversation to flow.
  • Catering for a crowd is no problem in the enormous farmhouse kitchen. Not only does it have an Aga range cooker and oven, but it also has split-level built in oven and microwave. Acres of bench space and tonnes of storage mean you can plan the most delicious meals, and the owner can help arrange a caterer if you want all the taste without the effort. The kitchen has a large scrubbed pine table for relaxed breakfasts.
  • A separate utility and boot room is a practical way of dealing with washing and storing muddy shoes, and it has a handy cloakroom with WC and hand basin tucked away in it.

First Floor:

  • A galleried landing has four bedrooms leading off it. Three have en-suite shower rooms with shower, hand basin and WC, while the fourth bedroom has access to the separate family bathroom complete with free-standing roll top bath, double sized shower, hand basin and WC.
  • Every bed is made up with top quality bedding and linen, and the bedrooms have good storage and lovely views of the surrounding fields.

Second Floor

  • There are three further bedrooms on the second floor. Although they are under the eaves, they are still light and spacious. One bedroom has its own ensuite, while the other two have use of the family bathroom on the floor below.

Outside: The grounds of Burrs Farm are as impressive as the interior. The gardens surround the house, which is at the end of a mile-long private driveway, and there are fields and countryside beyond. Outdoor features include:

  • A hot tub seating eight adults.
  • Several patio areas with a barbecue and fire pit.
  • Three acres of private land.
  • Footgolf course.
  • Private parking.
  • Playhouse and rope swing.
  • Herb garden guests are welcome to use for their own cooking.

Additional information: Burrs Farm has WiFi, and all utilities are included in the cost. Up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome by prior arrangement and at an additional cost. There is livestock in the neighbouring fields so dogs must be kept on leads and no fireworks are allowed. All utilities, linen and towels are included. Two travel cots and three highchairs can be provided.

Prices: Please contact the owner directly who will provide an accurate price based on your party size and personal requirements. Short breaks are available all year round with three-night minimum breaks (starting on a Friday) offered over the weekend. Please contact the owner for late availability.
