About Chestnut Farm

Chestnut Farm is a 17th century Derbyshire farm, longbarn and dairy with four beautifully converted cottages set in 1 1/4 acres of grounds and courtyard overlooking the Peak District National Park.  The Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site is within 15 minutes and the famous Limestone Way passes alongside the farm making us perfect for walkers.  Two village inns, a local deli and a garden centre are within walking distance, and more amenities in Matlock including a supermarket, bus and rail links and a steam railway are just 10 minutes away.  The bustling town of Matlock Bath with the popular Abraham Cable Cars, Gullivers Kingdom and a mining museum is only 2 1/2 miles away. 

Our four cottages are perfect for couples, families or solo travellers visiting the area.  The farm sits just above the pretty village of Bonsall and high above the 'Via Gellia' wooded gorge with wonderful views.  You're ideally situated for exploring the wider Peak District area including top spots like Carsington Water, the High Peak Trail, the Manifold Valley and Dovedale.  Attractions including Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and the Crich Tramway Village are only a short drive away.


Four individually styled cottages are available sleeping 2 to 6 guests and they sit in a stunning rural farm setting.  Each has its own character and charm with allocated parking and free WiFi.  Cottages are nice and cosy all year round with ground floor tiled flooring including underfloor heating and carpeted bedrooms with central heating/radiators.

The cottages are available to book individually or together for up to 16 guests.  Bed linen and towels are included. No smoking or vaping throughout, and no pets please.  We cannot accommodate commercial vehicles, motorhomes or caravans.
