Nestled in the heart of the Peak District, Mead Farm combines a tranquil location with a flourishing business
If ever there was a property that combined an idyllic life in the country with a successful business opportunity, Mead Farm would be it. Situated on the edge of the picturesque village of Hope, with stunning countryside views towards iconic Peak District landmarks such as Lose Hill and Win Hill, the beautifully restored 17th century farmhouse’s tranquil location is enhanced by a thriving holiday cottage business.
The farm is believed to date back to the early 1600s and it is thought to have been home to just four families. Historic documents show that the property was purchased by the Lose Hill Estate in 1924 for £700. The present owners bought the farm in 2007 and have since carried out tasteful and sympathetic renovations to create a comfortable home suited to modern living.
Accommodation includes a reception hall/study, dining room, sitting room and a light, bright garden room. The bespoke fitted kitchen is a classic yet contemporary space with light-coloured units, modern integrated appliances, a separate breakfast area with underfloor heating and wonderful exposed solid oak King Post trusses.
There are three double bedrooms – the principal of which has a luxury en-suite shower room – and a family bathroom.
To complement all of this, there are two self-catering holiday cottages currently providing a substantial income – the one bedroomed Acorn Cottage and the three bedroomed Oaks Cottage. Situated in a restored former barn, both cottages have achieved Five Star Gold Award recommendations from Visit England for their stylish accommodation.
The glorious green spaces that surround Mead Farm make it an ideal home for those with equestrian interests. The grounds extend to around 6.5 acres and include pleasant gardens, eight paddocks, stabling and a useful range of outbuildings.
Despite its rural location, the property has access to a varied range of amenities, including a primary and secondary school in nearby Hope, and is ideally situated just one mile away from the railway station, which offers services to Sheffield and Manchester.
