Reviews for Ancestral Barn at Dovedale Cottages

Tripadvisor logo

Meet the owner

Susan Franks

Church Farm has been a farm as far as we know since the 16th century and has been in our family for over 60 years. We took over the farmhouse and cottages about 10 years ago when we moved here with our daughter, our Red and White Irish Setter and our 3 cats. We love living in the countryside and take every opportunity to enjoy the walks from the door, the local country pubs and all that the Peak District has to offer. Over the years, we have gradually updated the interiors of the cottages, adding to the antique furnishings and giving them a more modern, cosy and luxurious feel, whilst maintaining all the character and charm of the Grade II listed buildings. We feel it is a real privilege to be living in such a wonderful area and love welcoming our guests so can they share it with us.
