Welcome to Beechenhill Farm.  Nestled in the Staffordshire Peak District, we look south over the Manifold Valley, right beside the beautiful Dovedale gorge.

Beechenhill has two self-catering cottages, plus farmhouse B&B.

Cottage by the Pond

This cottage, equipped and furnished with care, was converted from the old milking barn and designed to be accessible to everybody, including those with wheelchairs. Children are most welcome. A cot and high chair are available and included in the price.

The Cottage by the Pond is a warm, beautifully decorated cottage, where an imperious cockerel peers at you from over the kitchen sink and the sky is always blue!

On the ground floor there are two bedrooms with a small en-suite bathroom between them. The third bedroom nestles up in the rafters, up a tiny staircase.  

The large ground floor bathroom has a bath and a wheel-in, flat floor shower. There is a well equipped kitchen and large sitting room with dining area and whose large patio window looks due south over a little courtyard, the walled pond and the rolling farm land. There is a log burner and a DVD player for cosy evenings in.

Doors: All 880mm wide except en-suite and stairs.
Switches and sockets: All 170mm high

Large Bathroom: Non-slip floor, non-slip, shallow bath, rim 445mm high. Toilet seat 445mm high, left hand transfer, pull down hand rails both sides. Flat floor shower, mobile shower chair available on request. Lots of fresh towels included.

Heating for the whole farm is supplied by a large wood pellet burner, so its cosy and warm all the time.  Heating and fuel is all included in the price.
