Hope Farm House Barn is a classic limestone farm building from the 1720’s, just outside Alstonefield, one of the prettiest villages of the Peak District. It is right on the borders of Derbyshire and Staffordshire, and Cheshire is only a few miles away. The River Dove is just a short walk, where Isaac Walton fished for trout, and wrote The Compleat Angler.
This is the White Peak District, in the southern Pennines, 10 miles from the spa town of Buxton, the highest market town in England. We are in the Peak District National Park, which was the first one to be established, in 1951. This very special landscape has thus been protected for over 60 years. The geology is part limestone and part millstone grit (the Dark Peak) so there are areas of very high, wild moorland as well as pretty fields and valleys. Kinder Scout is the highest point, at 636m.
