About Overbrook Barn

Overbrook Barn is in a stunning location in the beautiful Peak District National Park, tucked away on the family-run Farbrook Farm where your nearest neighbours are a field of friendly alpacas. The barn is a fantastic restoration where up to eight people can sleep in four comfortable bedrooms, enjoying lots of space and far-reaching views and a network of footpaths and bridleways accessible from the door. It's an excellent choice for big families, extended families or friends.

Farbrook Farm is genuinely rural. The nearest town is five miles away in Buxton, a spa town popularised by the Georgians. They came to "take the waters" and turned it into the most fashionable holiday destination of its day. The Victorians also loved this part of the world, resulting in Buxton's elegant architecture and beautiful public gardens. Pick up a map for a self-guided Heritage Trail around town or climb aboard the red tourist bus. Buildings of note include the magnificent Opera House and Grade I listed houses in The Cresent. Buxton also has an excellent variety of places to eat, drink and shop.

One of the most famous local attractions is Chatsworth House. Guests should allow a full day to explore the house and its art collections, as well as the extensive grounds and parkland which include an adventure playground and farm. Other country houses include Haddon Hall, Lyme Park, Tatton Park and Biddulph Grange.

Walking, cycling and horse riding are all excellent ways to explore the national park. In addition to the bridleways and footpaths that pass through the farm, there is a fishing lake three miles away in Wincle, while Rudyard Lake also offers the chance to swim and sail. Guests inspired by the landscape can book onto a local photography or painting course, or get more practical and learn a countryside skill at the Derbyshire Eco Centre or College of the Pak and National Stone Centre.

Destinations for a day out can include Poole's Cavern and Peak Cavern, exploring historic towns like Bakewell, with its famous pudding, and the plague village of Eyam, known for its self-sacrificing locals. They closed themselves off from the wider community to prevent the spread of the plague in the 1600s. Macclesfield and Congleton are about a 20-minute drive from the farm. Both towns which have an interesting past, excellent amenities and narrowboats for hire on the canal.

Overbrook Barn can be booked on its own to sleep up to eight people, or together with the Shearing Shed to sleep groups of up to 16 friends or extended families. Please see the owner's website for more information.
