Breach Farm Holiday Cottages - Carsington

    In the heart of the beautiful Derbyshire Dales and on the edge of the Peak District, Breach Farm stands in fourteen acres and has wonderful views of the surrounding Derbyshire countryside.

    It is an ideal location for exploring the area’s many attractions, and although we are no longer a working farm, sheep graze the fields and our free-range hens take the right to roam very seriously.

    We live in the main farmhouse, and are there if needed, but try to keep a low profile and not intrude on your holiday.

    Everything will be clean, warm and welcoming for your arrival and we hope that your stay at Breach Farm will be as enjoyable as possible.

    There is an wide range of activities in the area, from the thrills of Alton Towers to the splendour of Chatsworth House.
