About The Coach House

The Coach House is a lovely holiday cottage on a working farm near Alstonefield, close to the Derbyshire/Staffordshire border. The family-run Gateham Grange farm is at the base of Wetton Hill, and the surrounding landscape features some of the best footpaths in the Peak District. There is space for six people to sleep in two bedrooms with accommodation suitable for couples or families. It's a wonderfully picturesque spot and perfect for a walking, cycling and sightseeing holiday in any season. Children and two well-behaved dogs are welcome, which means the whole family can enjoy the scenery of the Peak District.

Alstonefield's location makes it perfect for a walking holiday. It's in the White Peak area, within easy reach of the Dove Valley and Manifold Valley, so there is a vast variety of trails to explore. The village green and pub, The George, is just over a mile away, with local footpaths leading to Hanson Grange and the top of Wetton Hill. You're also within easy reach of Thor's Cave and the traffic-free Manifold Way that goes for eight scenic miles between Waterhouses and Hulme End. Narrowdale, Beresford Dale, and Wolfscote Dale all beckon enticingly, filling your days with beauty and adventure.

Gateham Grange is a fantastic location for top attractions like Pooles Cavern, Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Tissington Hall, Sudbury Hall, and the Museum of Childhood. Bakewell and Buxton are around 25 minutes away, each with a great choice of places to eat, drink and shop. There are historic steam railways, rivers and dams for fishing and sailing, and pretty gardens. The Heights of Abraham, Gulliver's World and Alton Towers are close enough for a day out. Locals love to celebrate the food, landscape, history and culture of the Peak District, so have a look at its calendar of events to see what is on while you're there.

The Coach House has been a part of the landscape for centuries, initially as a barn and more recently as a comfortable holiday home. It's a wonderful choice for a rural escape in any season.

A door opens into the courtyard.
