Farlands Cottage in the Peak District is a great place to stay all year round. Its great location - the BBC's 'The Village' was filmed nearby - gives fantastic walking from the door. Log fire, well equipped. An ideal place to retreat to.
Farlands free-range eggs and Farlands comb honey for sale.
Looking for something different?
Farlands is a smallholding with chickens, turkeys, bees and a large veg garden and orchard. Tours available:- Smallholding Tour, Fruit and Nut Tour and The Green Tour.
We try to live as sustainably as possible:-
- by growing our own fruit and veg (we are just about self-sufficient)
- by keeping bees
- by composting and recycling as much as possible
- by having solar panels and a wood pellet boiler (our water is from a spring, and we have septic tanks; in effect we our zero-sum consumers of non-renewable energy)
3 tours are available:-
Smallholding - general overview (1 or 2 hours)
Fruit and Nut - view the orchard, cordon line, tree nursery, step-overs and discuss grafting and much more!
The Green Tour - view and discuss the green energy systems (solar panels, biomass boiler, spring water, insulation, recycling)
