Hi, I'm Gemma. Simon and I have been living at Farbrook Farm since 2000. Farbrook is a beautiful 18th century farm sitting in a quiet valley in the south west corner of the Peak District National Park on the edge of the village of Flash, the highest village in Britain.
Farbrook is a working farm where we breed excellent quality alpacas for the fine fibre industry. We decided to convert our lovliest barn to self-catering accommodation and Overbrook Barn is the result. We've recently converted our alpaca shearing shed to self-catering also Shearing Shed. Overbrook Barn sleeps 8 in four double rooms; The Shearing Shed sleeps 8: 6 in 3 double rooms and 2 on a sofa bed in the living room. Both are very comfortable, cosy, and have modern equipment throughout.
We've had young children ourselves, and yours are very welcome. None of our livestock pose any danger to humans, both Overbrook Barn and The Shearing Shed have their own gated gardens, the farm is secure, and our access road is very quiet. We also have chickens, ducks, sheep, and often pigs: a paradise for city children! We have an enthusiastic and friendly black lab so we're very pet friendly and your well behaved pets are most welcome.
We're in the centre of a network of footpaths and bridleways that offer some of the best walking and riding you'll find in the country. There's a huge amount to do locally, along with great eating and drinking.
I do hope you'd like to come and share our life on the farm for a little while and that these pages will help show you what we have to offer. If there's anything you'd like to know do get in touch with me.
