Whitehouse Farm Barn




Richard and Janet Mason extend a very warm welcome to the website of Whitehouse Farm Barn.

At Whitehouse Farm Barn we have a philosophy not to rush guests which is why a weekend means 4pm on the Friday until 10am on the Monday morning. If you wish to extend either way for a few people please just ask, I am sure we can work something out.


Please view the videos to get a feel for how fabulous this area is and how beautiful the local towns and villages are.....click on the video link to the left.

Whitehouse Farm is a 19th century farm centrally situated in the Peak District National Park in glorious open countryside. It no longer operates as a working farm.

The diverse nature of the Derbyshire landscape with its dry-stone walling, deep wooded valleys, heather clad moorlands and thriving market towns and villages provides the perfect setting for a relaxing group holiday or family get-together.

The barn is approximately 150 metres from the Tissington Trail which is a popular cycle and walking track. You can leave your bicycles in a secure place at the farm. Parsley Hey is less than 2 miles away where you can hire bikes or grab something to eat.

We are also only about 10 miles from The Monsall Trail which  follows the path of the former Midland Railway from Blackwell Mill cottages to Coombs Viaduct, about 1km past the former Bakewell station - a distance of about 20km. For the most part the trail follows the path of the River Wye, which means it offers some spectacular scenery.

The Peak District National Park have recently spent £2.5m on re-opening the tunnels so it is possible to walk, cycle or horse-ride right the way along the trail. It was opened in May 2011.

The barn was tastefully converted in 2003 and sleeps up to 14 people in comfort. The accommodation comprises a downstairs bedroom with ensuite which caters for people with disabilities including wheelchair access to the shower. There is also a family room which sleeps 4 people with its own bath room and 4 other bedrooms with another bath room and downstairs toilet. The large kitchen dining room is well equipped and the large lounge comfortably seats 14 people and has a large widescreen television.

There is ample secure parking at the barn as well as space to dry boots and cagouls etc.

The historic towns of Ashbourne, Buxton and Bakewell are all within easy reach for shopping trips or meals out as well as the small villages of Hartington and Biggin less than a mile away.

The larger supermarkets will deliver to the barn and your order can be accepted prior to your arrival with notice.

The farm is not a working farm anymore and is committed to recycling. No dogs please unless by prior consent.
