There is just so much to see and do on your doorstep - you just cant beat the location.

On the farm we have lambing in the Spring, followed by cows calving, then there's sheep shearing, haymaking and silaging. Along with their parents children are welcome to help bottle feed young lambs, help feed and water the expectant mothers and collect eggs for breakfast in the morning if the hens are laying. Certain times of the year are busier than others on the farm so what there is to see can vary, please feel free to enquire when booking your holiday.

Location description from owner

The England region

Come and take in the breathtaking landscape of the Peak District. You can take a spectacular walk over some of the 500 sq. miles of countryside and National Park, enjoy the rich cultural history of the area in the wonderful Chatsworth House (where Pride and Prejudice was filmed) and the wealth of other stately homes. There are also bustling, bright towns, cosy country pubs and great shopping all around. It is a trip that will be truly magical and compelling with so much to do in this glorious area of the English countryside.

Alstonefield

Alstonefield has won the best village award many times in the past. It is a stunning village with a close knit community who are always friendly and willing to help. Alstonefield is actually built on a limestone plateau, which is 900 feet above sea level, making for lovely views. There is a popular old coaching inn just in front of the old wool market, and shops that used to thrive on the silk industry, making silk buttons! It is a wonderful village, with craft shops and galleries to potter about in as well as being the link to the wonderful countryside all around.

“Fantastic real farm experience”

Reviewed 23 Apr 2016

Wonderful week! The kids had a wonderful time, feeding lambs, pony feeling, bike riding. Everything is closed by. Teresa Robert and Sam were wonderful hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Lovely clean accomodation. A great experience for children and adults alike .

Many thanks. We are pleased you had a nice time and would love to see you all again. It was a pleasure having you stay.

“A pastoral idyll in the Peak District”

Reviewed 12 May 2013

We have stayed at Gateham Grange something like twenty times over the last fifteen years both in the Coach House and in Gateham Cottage. The accommodation looks beautiful and has always been very welcoming and comfortable but the real attraction that has brought us back year after year has been the location. Gateham Grange itself, although very much a working farm, is quite unspoilt and idyllic and you can set off in any direction for a day of perfect walking in the Peak District with the Manifold valley less than two miles to the west and the Dove only a mile or so eastwards. The owners are friendly, approachable and extremely helpful without being intrusive and our daughters have loved feeding their lambs.

“Perfect”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2012

If you like the quite middle of nowhere outdoors feeling, The Coach House is the place to be. Living on a working farm was an experience that the kids loved to bits, with the chickens wondering about and lambs escaping - the kids loved it. Teresa, Robert and Sam were all very welcoming, taking the time to talk to us and making us feel welcome and comfortable.

“Help out on the farm - perfect for kids”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2012

We stayed in the Coach house with our three children aged 3, 6 and 7 last week. We loved the farm. Cows, sheep, chickens and the friendly cat right outside your door. The children loved helping with feeding the chickens, herding the sheep, watching she eps toe nails being cut and how a baby calf was adopted in the cow shed next to the Coach House. The garden on the terrace at the back of the coach house is a hidden treasure with great views and we had lovely family meals there. Gateham Grange can be highly recommended. Adam Weir

“Wonderful holiday destination for all! A real home from home.”

Reviewed 24 May 2012

I booked the Coach House at Gateham Grange for myself, my eldest daughter and my 4 year old grandson. The Coach House was a beautiful cottage, with everything you could need for a holiday and very comfortable beds! Teresa, Robert and Sam were all very welcoming, taking the time to talk to us and making us feel welcome and comfortable. My grandson absolutely loved the farm with the cows and calves and the sheep and the lambs (and a very friendly cat!); he was even given the opportunity to help feed the lambs. There are some beautiful walks from the farm, short and longer. We recommend taking a walk to Thors Cave. We definitely intend on returning.

“Perfect farm holiday”

Reviewed 24 Oct 2011

As you cWell we have been holidaying at the coach house since 1998 and have returned again and again with family and friends. The Coach house very spacious and has all the comforts from home and it has one of the best washing up views to! We now have a family of our own so holiday has changed it used to be wandering the lovely towns of buxton, bakewell, hartington, ashbourne and leek and then thrill seeking at alton towers. Now its Thomas land at Drayton manor, Abraham heights cable car ride at Matlock, but still a visit to Bakewell for a yummy tart! The owners of the farm are very friendly and last year we fed the lambs and this year our 3 year old collected eggs and fed the chickens, and loved watching the farmers out of the window.As you can see I can go on about this place forever but pay it a visit and make your own minds up.

“A warm welcome awaits at this real working farm ,in picturesque countryside.”

Reviewed 17 Oct 2011

Took our first holiday at Gateham Grange in the 1980's with our teenage children and have returned on a number of occasions including last year with one of the 'children' fast approaching 40! Every visit has been a pleasure, clean comfortable accommodation ,a warm welcome from Teresa and Robert who were always happy to help. A real working farm to savour, and plenty of things to see, do and eat in the area. We'll be back.
