About Colshaw Farmhouse

Colshaw Farmhouse sets the bar high for comfortable self-catering in the Peak District. The whitewashed farmhouse is surrounded by gorgeous countryside in a wonderfully peaceful location down a quiet country lane, yet only a mile from Flash, the highest village in England, where there is an excellent cafe and village store. The cottage easily sleeps four people in two bedrooms and is popular with couples and families who come to discover the many Peak District National Park attractions.

The neighbouring villages of Flash and Quarnford are good for picking up the basics, but many guests prefer to get most of their supplies at Buxton, just five miles from the farmhouse. The Romans called the spa town Aquae Arnemetiae and built a shrine and baths on what is now the Crescent Hotel. Wealthy Georgians and Victorians all visited Buxton to “take the waters”, and a spa day remains the perfect way to treat yourself today. It is a fantastic town for shopping and dining, and several way-marked walking trails around Buxton show off its history and stunning architecture.

Bakewell is a little more low-key than Buxton but no less beautiful. Independent retailers, restaurants and cafes fill quirky period buildings that date back, in some cases, to the late 1500s. There is a regular weekly market with more than 100 stalls every Monday, and a farmers’ market on the last Saturday of the month. Jane Austen stayed at the Rutland Arms Hotel and is believed to have used Bakewell and nearby Chatsworth House as inspiration for the setting of Pride and Prejudice.

The Peak District can be explored overground on the Monsal Trail and Tissington Trail, by going up Mam Tor or walking over the Dovedale stepping stones, and underground at Poole’s Cavern and Treak Cliff Cavern. Drink in the serene countryside views of The Roaches, or admire the geological formations at Kinder Scout and Stanage Edge. Visit Eyam village and the Lumsdale Valley, or take a ride on the historic Ecclesbourne Valley Railway or the Heights of Abraham cable car in Matlock Bath. With Colshaw Farmhouse as your home for the duration of your stay, you will start each day rested and raring to go.

Location (The Peak District)

Accommodation Comprises:

Colshaw Farmhouse is a fantastic detached house surrounded by rolling green fields. The owners also offer luxury glamping accommodation which can, depending on availability, be booked together with the farmhouse to accommodate larger groups. Thick stone walls keep the cottage cool in summer and warm in winter. The owners have kept some of this stone exposed to great effect, creating an appeal that is rustic and welcoming.


  • Comfortable sofas and an open fireplace will make the living room your favourite place once the sun has dropped over the hills of the Dove Valley. There is a television, books and games for your entertainment.
  • The kitchen has everything you could wish for in a self-catering cottage, including a large fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave.
  • The enormous roll top bath is the prefect place to soak tired muscles at the end of an energetic day walking, cycling or horse riding. The boutique style bathroom also has a separate walk-in shower, WC and handbasin. The owners have added extra touches of luxury with Egyptian cotton towels.


  • The master bedroom has a very romantic four-poster double bed and enjoys beautiful views. There is good storage, and a travel cot can be provided if required.
  • The twin bedroom has two full-sized single beds, bedside tables, and useful storage. It also has lovely views over the farmland and Dovedale Valley.

Outside: The farmhouse has a private garden with barbecue and garden furniture for summer meals in the sunshine. There is off-street parking.

Additional Information: The farmhouse has central heating and WiFi. All utilities, linen and towels are included. A pack of logs, coal and kindling is also supplied. More can be purchased if required. Short breaks are possible outside of peak season with two night breaks charged at £195. No smoking. No pets.
